Never wear Fake Tan or Tanning Lotion in the hot tub, doing so may result in a $500 cleaning fee.
The swim spa has a compliant pool fence and has been inspected to ensure compliance with local council rules and regulations.
The swim spa must be tested every day by guests to maintain chemical balance. Instructions will be provided upon arrival at the property. The process is easy and takes approximately 2 minutes.
To ensure the ongoing cleanliness of the swim spa, the owners will require access once to twice per week (more often for larger groups) to check the swim spas chemical balance and clean the swim spa. The process takes less than 30 minutes, and will occur at a mutually convenient time to reduce any impact to your privacy.
Ensure the cover is on the swim spa when not in use. Failing to do so may result in a cold hot tub next time you use and the heat pump may not be able to keep up. The heat pump is NOT environmentally friendly!
