Should I shower before and after I use the hot tub?

Few people know, but it's also worth taking a nice shower before and after using a hot tub. There are various reasons to do so, including health and maintenance reasons:

Before Entering the Hot Tub

  1. Removing Contaminants: Showering before entering a hot tub helps remove dirt, sweat, body oils, and personal care products like lotions, deodorants, and perfumes. These contaminants can react with the chemicals in the hot tub, reducing their effectiveness and potentially leading to the formation of harmful byproducts. There's no need for a big soak, just a thorough, short shower before using the Buenospa hot tub.
  2. Preventing Water Quality Issues: Clean skin reduces the introduction of organic matter into the water, which can affect the hot tub’s pH balance and overall water quality. This helps maintain a sanitary environment and reduces the frequency of required maintenance and chemical adjustments. Keep your Buenospa hot tub clean and always shower before use.
  3. Protecting Equipment: Minimizing contaminants helps prevent the buildup of residues and biofilms within the hot tub’s plumbing and filtration systems, extending the life of the equipment and reducing the need for repairs. It is worth installing a garden shower if you have a tub in your garden. And if you're indoors, you can just walk over to the hot tub with a towel on and use it!

After Exiting the Hot Tub

  1. Removing Chemicals: Showering after using a hot tub helps rinse off any residual chlorine, bromine, or other sanitizing chemicals that may remain on your skin. Prolonged exposure to these chemicals can cause skin irritation, dryness, and allergic reactions. They can easily stick to your pre-cleaned skin, so showering after a hot tub is a must!
  2. Skin Health: Hot tub water can be drying to the skin. Showering afterward allows you to cleanse and moisturize your skin, preventing issues like dryness, itching, or rashes. Be sure to use a moisturizing shower gel to restore your skin's natural beauty after hot tub use.
  3. Preventing Infections: Rinsing off thoroughly after using a hot tub helps remove any bacteria or pathogens that may be present in the water, reducing the risk of skin infections or other health issues. The chances of this happening are slim, but make sure you make a point of washing yourself after using the hot tub.

Use your Buenospa hot tub properly and shower before and after each use. This will keep your hot tub in perfect working order for years to come!
