Relaxing in the hot tub on a warm evening, catching up with friends, sounds like the ideal treat.
However, these experiences can sometimes be less than relaxing, especially for those who aren’t so firm on their feet. Much like baths and shower trays, the smooth surfaces within a hot tub can often become slippy, causing a hazard that can result in nasty injuries if care is not taken.
We have put together a list of 3 ways in which you can reduce these risks, allowing you to enjoy your hot tub experience safely.
Always sit down except when getting in and out of the hot tub. Once you have climbed in, it is important that you sit down and try to refrain from getting up or moving around the hot tub too much. The more you move around, the higher the risk of you injuring yourself whilst doing so. So, sit back, relax and enjoy the calming experience!
Ensure surfaces surrounding the hot tub are kept as dry as possible. Steps, decking and other surfaces that are commonly found in the garden can be very slippy and dangerous when wet, especially if you’ve enjoyed a few drinks and feel a little less stable than usual. Consider installing grab rails to hold on to whilst getting in and out of the hot tub to ensure added stability as well as placing non-slip mats to prevent any slips whilst exiting the hot tub.
Consider applying an anti-slip coating to your hot tub surfaces. Using the correct treatments for your hot tub can help to make the wet surfaces less dangerous. Simply No-Slip, our acrylic anti-slip treatment, has been designed to reduce slips in baths, shower trays, hot tubs and swimming pool steps. It is the perfect solution for anyone looking for an easy to apply treatment to improve hot tub safety. The anti-slip coating is a discreet, hygienic and permanent non-slip solution! Below is a short video explaining what you’ll receive when you purchase a Simply No-Slip anti-slip kit and how to apply the anti-coating to any acrylic hot tub, bath or shower tray.
