Super Bowl Party

Are you hosting a super bowl party? Having family and friends over to enjoy that hot tub of yours? Look no further! Here are some of our tips on how to throw a safe, yet enjoyable, hot tub party.

Cleanliness, Disinfection & WATER TEMPERATURE 
Now this probably goes without saying, but always remember, it’s the owner’s responsibility to ensure that the water is clean and safe, to prevent the spread of infections. Make sure to maintain the proper level of disinfectant to keep the water free of microorganisms.

The temperature of a hot tub should never be hotter than 40°C (104°F). If your hot tub doesn’t have a digital temperature, always keep a floating thermometer in the water.

Know your NUMBERS
Every hot tub has its limit. It’s important to find out what the maximum capacity of your hot tub is. Know the number and stick to it! With that number in mind, you can now come up with a game plan on how many people to invite.

When throwing a hot tub party, you always want to keep your guest busy. It’s a great idea to have something else planned for guests to participate in while they are waiting to hop in, or once they have hopped out of your hot tub. Did you know that 15-20 minutes is generally considered a safe soaking time for adults?

Having the super bowl on in the background will be a great crowd pleaser, but if you need other ideas, cards and board games are lots of fun too!

Have extra SUPPLIES
You can make the invitation crystal clear that it’s a hot tub party, and there will still always be someone (or many people!) who forgets to bring a swimsuit or towel!

Plan ahead and have extra towels and swimsuits sitting in the sidelines so that nobody is left out. It’s also always good to have a first aid kit, you know, just in case!

Food, Drink & MUSIC
We all know a huge part of what makes a party is the food and drink. With that being said, when throwing a hot tub party, guests aren’t likely going to want to overindulge. We all know the feeling of standing there in a tight swimsuit! Light appetizers and snacks are usually best.  

Take it easy on the booze while in the hot tub, and make sure your guests do too! Alcohol can lower the body’s resistance to the effects of overheating, and can also cause drowsiness. Make sure to have lots of water available as well as some non-alcoholic beverages. You may want to serve your drinks in plastic cups. That way, you avoid any glasses being broken in the tub!

Now, I know you’ll likely have the super bowl as background noise for the majority of your party, but make sure to have some music ready for once the game is over. Always have a mix of different genres so that there’s a little something for everyone.

Decorate
I’m pretty sure you already have your football decorations at the ready, but just in case you don’t, always make it festive and fun by adding a few decorations! We promise you, it will really bring the party together!

Lastly
Our final piece of advice for you is to relax and enjoy yourself! If you have any questions or concerns about your hot tub, please contact us.
