How Long Should You Stay in Hot Tub Water?


Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs offer many enjoyable benefits for those who soak on a regular basis. It’s important for you to know how to operate and enjoy your hot tub water safely and efficiently. Users can be exposed to certain health risks if the hot tub isn’t used properly. Soaking in a hot tub for the right amount of time can be very beneficial to your health and enjoyment. You can avoid potential threats to your health by getting informed and using your hot tub safely.

You can contact Wellness Shop for more information about safe ways to enjoy your Jacuzzi® hot tub to the fullest.


The temperature of your hot tub can have an impact on how long you can stay in the water safely. Ideally, the water should be kept around 100°F to 102°F. Some prefer the temperature around 98°F for a warm experience, while others prefer to keep their Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs at the maximum heat of 104°F.

Usually, the higher the temperature of the water, the less amount of time you should be spending inside at once. One effective way of finding your perfect hot tub temperature is through trial and error. If the water feels too hot or too cool, change the temperature and try again in a day or two.


You should aim to soak in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub for anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes at a time. Sometimes, this time span can increase to 45 minutes to an hour depending on certain aspects. You can always take a break after you’ve been in the water for long enough and re-enter later on.

The outside temperature can have an impact on how long you can safely stay in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. If the weather is unusually hot or cold, your body may naturally cool itself at a different rate than usual. It’s important to be aware of how you are feeling while in the spa water. Your overall health can also have an impact on how long you should stay in a hot tub. Generally, healthy adults can stay in the water for the recommended amount of time – for as long as they feel comfortable. You should speak with a physician if you have been diagnosed with a health condition.

Ultimately, your health and comfort level can help you to figure out how long you can stay in your hot tub. If you begin to feel dizzy or sick, you may want to decrease the amount of time spent inside of your hot tub.


There are many benefits to regularly using a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. Not using your hot tub safely can sometimes lead to certain health risks.

If you are inside of your hot tub for too long you may feel light-headed, dizzy, or nauseous. If you aren’t careful about the amount of time you spend inside a hot tub you can even risk overheating. It is very important to educate yourself on the best, and safest, way to operate and use your hot tub. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs offer many luxurious benefits when used properly.


It can be beneficial to speak with a physician before you begin to regularly use your hot tub. This will give you an opportunity to discuss any personal risks that may be associated with hot tub use, depending on your current state of health.
