Can I use my Hot Tub?
If you have a serious fault that affects the filtration and/or safe operation of your hot tub, we recommend that you drain your spa immediately and turn off the power supply to avoid any potential health risks until we can book an appointment for you.
Sitting in a hot tub has always been known to have so many health benefits, and though the use of innovative technology such as Ozone or ClearRay, helps you to maintain clean and clear water.
However, we have received a large number of emails and phone calls from customers who are asking about the use of hot tubs and swim spas during this time. We will continue to monitor all advice from relevant bodies, but we wish to reassure our customers that there is no evidence that the virus can be spread through pools or hot tubs. As outlined by the The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans using pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g. with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19.
Everyone here at Outdoor Living is thinking about those affected by the outbreak and we wish you and your families the very best of health during this difficult time. If you need to contact us, please call (and please leave a message if not answered immediately) or send an email and we will respond to your message as soon as practically possible. Please bear with us during this unprecedented and challenging time.
