Because of the safety features of new hot tubs, you have a maximum temperature of 104°F. The settings will not even allow you to go beyond that limit. Most older units are not equipped with this safety precaution, therefore allowing you to raise the temperature even higher.
Whether you have a temperature limit or not, most experts recommend for safety reasons adults should never go beyond 104°F. For that reason, always check the temperature before entering the water.
Since everyone has a different preference, there is no magic number for the perfect temperature for your Jacuzzi. A few individuals will prefer a quick dip in the maximum temperature possible, although, the majority would instead soak in water 100°F – 102°F range.
How Long Should I Soak?
For starting your morning off energized and ready to go, grab a cup of coffee and take a 10-15-minute dip at 102°F. Believe it or not, the same temperature in the evening for about 20-25 minutes will help you sleep better.
Because of the dangers of spending long periods of time in hot water for some, you should consult with your doctor or healthcare provider before soaking.
For those pregnant or other health conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or other illness, should consider turning down the temperature before entering the hot tub. Your doctor will be able to guide you to the safest temperature for your medical condition.
Children in the Hot Tub
Since children do not have the same heat tolerance as adults, children age 5 and under should not enter water above 95°F. Plus, they should not soak for more than 5 -10 minutes at a time.
Because of the health benefits of treating physical ailments such as muscles, joint pain, stiffness, inflammation and spinal pain, Jacuzzi hot tubs are one of the hottest on the market since the ancient practice of hydrotherapy. Many are experiencing mental and physical well-being, with a quick daily dip for about 10 minutes.
