Commercial Hot Tubs

With UK staycations becoming increasingly popular, a lot of hotel owners and holiday homeowners are looking at purchasing hot tubs to encourage custom. One thing that is important is to make sure that the hot tubs you purchase have been adapted to be HSG282 compliant.

HSG282 compliant means that your hot tubs are covered by a list of Guidelines made by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) to ensure the safe usage of commercial hot tubs ie: risk of infection and legionella.

A risk assessment needs to be carried out. All potential risks need to be considered then decided on how these risks should be managed. Secondly, you would need to assess whether or not your hot tub is HSG282 compliant. If it is, the components would include the following

  • Adequate 24-hour Filtration - To ensure the removal of debris from the water a 24-hour filtration system is imperative to make sure that the water clarity can be maintained.

  • Water Capacity – Your hot tub should allow 250-litres of water per person. This is to make sure that an exceeded number of people don’t enter the hot tub at the same time.

  • Inline Chemical Feeder - Ensuring that you have the correct dosing control system comprising Chlorine or Bromine will make sure that treatment levels are correct but water testing should be carried out twice a day.

  • Maximum Person Capacity – There should be a clear sign to show the maximum amount of people that are safely and comfortably allowed in the hot tub at any one time.

  • Headrests – Headrests should not be on a hotel or holiday rental hot tub due to the fact that they retain bacteria, they can be prone to breakage aswell. However, most domestic hot tubs do come with headrests.

  • Regular Water Testing and Written Records – Commercial hot tubs should be water tested twice a day to ensure the correct levels of chlorine or bromine are being used and also to ascertain that the water has the correct PH and alkalinity levels. If any of the levels are too high or too low, this must be rectified immediately to reduce the risk of skin irritation or infection.

  • User Information Signs – User information signs should be visible so that guests know exactly how many people are allowed in the hot tub also warning signs should be visible to warn again slipping on wet floors etc.
