5. Using the Hot Tub

IMPORTANT NOTES

All guests use the Hot Tub at their own risk. DO not use the hot tub if you have been advised by your doctor not to bath in hot water. The temperature is always between 100-103 F.

Only registered guests may use the amenities at Blue Mountains Bed and Breakfast.

Always shower before using the Hot Tub.

Users may not wear or use any lotions, oils, cleaners or perfumes in the hot tub. This will contaminate the water and potentially place it out of service, require a full water exchange or new filter. Sun tan oil is particularly damaging to the water.

Long hair must be tied up or wrapped in a towel or head scarf.

Bathing suits must be worn, no street clothing or non-traditional bathing suites allowed.

No glass or other breakable items may be taken into or placed on the edge of the hot tub. We provide plastic and stainless-steel beverage wear.

DO NOT turn off any nozzles or jets. This can damage the pump and place the hot tub out of service for all guests.

Guests only need to press the MASSAGE or LIGHT buttons. Pressing more than one button at a time, can place the Hot Tub into sleep or programming mode and cause the Hot Tub to be out of service.

The Hot tub is NOT to be used as a mini swimming pool examples : NO diving, jumping, splashing water over the edges, swimming under water or pool toys inside.

The correct water level keeps the pumps operating properly. Overloading the hot tub will cause the water to flow over the top potentially shorting out the control panel and causing the hot tub to turn off. If this occurs leave the hot tub and notify Laura immediately.

No one party may occupy the Hot Tub for more than 30 continuous minutes.

Parents must be in or beside the hot tub if it is occupied by their children (min. age 12)

Always check for any lost items (jewellery, hair ties, bobby pins…) before leaving the hot tub

Always close properly after use

During the open hours posted in your suite, all guests are welcome to use the hot tub. If it is currently occupied by someone else, wait 15 minutes. If the other party is still using the hot tub, please let them know that you are waiting. If they do not vacate shortly afterwards, please text Laura at 905 650 5299.

Conversely, if you are using the hot tub and others guests are waiting, please vacate it within 15 minutes.

 

To open the hot tub:

  1. Ensure that all fastening straps are undone

  2. Approach the hot tub from its right-hand side (facing from the staircase). Grasp the hand grip in the middle of the cover, place your hand between the cover and the hot tub to break any vapor vacuum, them slowly lift up the cover and fold it back over the left-hand side of the cover. Do not remove the lifter bar, it will remain between the left side and the right side.

  3. Walk around to the left-hand side and grasp BOTH hand grips.

Step backwards while gently pulling the cover towards you and . It will rotate up then begin to slide down.

Continue to support the cover during this operation. Do not yank and let it drop.

The cover will rotate up on the lifter bar then lean slightly back from the hot tub where it will be supported by the lifter bar chains.

Operation of the Hot Tub

The hot tub is always turned on and hot. To engage the jets, press the MASSAGE button. Once = low speed, twice = high speed 3 = OFF

The timer will run the hot tub for 15 minutes.

Closing the Hot Tub

            If it is still running, press the Massage button until it stops running.

            Check for any lost items in or around the hot tub

            Close the cover from the left-hand side by slowly lifting up and pushing inwards.

            It will rotate up and stop with both halves of the cover on the left-hand side.

Gently lift the top half of the cover and pull it over onto the righthand side, please do not drop it down.

 

During winter or in high winds DO NOT OPEN THE LEFT SIDE, only fold the right side over the left.

Unlock the padlock and remove from the latch. Slide the latch back to open.

The switch for the interior light is located above and to the right of the entry door, on the outside.

On the front lower portion of the heater there are two dials. The left hand dial is heat level which we always 

leave turned to the highest, do not adjust. The right hand dial has large and small numbers. The large numbers are 0 and 1 and represent a 60 minute timer. The smaller numbers are for the delay start function.

To start the heater turn the right hand dial slightly past the large 1, you will hear a click. Then turn the dial back towards the 0. When you hear a second click, stop. The heater will now run for 60 minutes. 

The sauna takes 15-20 minutes to preheat. You can hear a faint sizzling while it is heating up. 

If you wish to leave the sauna in less than 60 minutes, please turn the dial back to 0.
