WHAT TEMPERATURE SHOULD A HOT TUB BE?

We get asked this question by Hire customer's & new owners a lot, The answer can be quite simple, however there are also some factors to consider including hot tub temperature range, body temperature, ambient temperature and health risks. 

Hot Tub Temperature Usual Range

Majority of  hot tubs can go as low as 26°C and as usual always have a maximum temperature of 40°C for safety reasons. You may consider going as low as 26 degrees, this would most likely be in the heat of summer if you wanted to use the hot tub to cool off. On the flip side 40 degrees is very hot and can be unbearable for some users. The quick answer to 'how hot should my hot tub be?' is between 37°C-40°C to ensure you enjoy the maximum benefit that hot water provides. 

Body Temperature vs. Hot Tub Temperature

The average body temperature is generally around 37°C. The impact this has on your hot tub experience can be quite profound. If the water is under 37 degrees then you may experience a slight chill. This can be a nice sensation when you want to cool off in hot weather. Alternatively, in the winter when the ambient temperature is cooler you may want to give a buffer of a few degrees above 37, this is because the hot tub will cool slowly with the cover off so if you plan on a longer soak, you will stay warm for longer!

Finding The Perfect Temperature to Hot Tub In

Test it out! As long as you consider the below health considerations before doing so then you will be safe to try 40°C vs. 37°C! You may find that you & members of your household  prefer different temperatures depending on the season but only you will know what you enjoy. Us here at Lay-z-days like the tub around 38-39 Degrees however we always set it to below 37 Degrees if our children are entering.

Health Risks & Children

  • Always consult a doctor before getting in the hot tub while pregnant.
  • in you own a hot tub - Children under age 5 should not be in hot tubs over 35°C, and should only remain in hot tubs for 5-10 minutes at a time for safety under full adult supervision- we however do not allow any children under the age of 5 in our hire tubs.
  • Make sure you stay hydrated while using a hot tub. 

How long does it take for a hot tub to heat up?

This varies depending on heater size, flow, size of the hot tub, ambient temperature and quality of insulation. Generally speaking, a hot tub will warm up 1 degree per hour.

What should I do with the hot tub temperature when I go away?

It is worth reducing the hot tub temperature to save money on heating costs and potentially cut chemical consumption alternatively you can also use your hot tubs heat timer.
