Wood Fired Hot Tub Terms & Conditions

Please adhere to the following safety considerations and rules when using your hot tub to have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Stove and Heating:

Our hot tubs are wood fired and heated from a small stove located in the side of the hot tub. Similar to a stove or fire in your home, these come to a high temperature and care should be taken when using. It takes the hot tub approx. 3 hours to heat to a suitable temperature for use and the fire should be supervised to ensure it is burning correctly. Only over 18s should stock the stove. The Hot Tub must be filled to 10cm above the highest seat level in the tub BEFORE you start to light the stove. DO NOT light the stove when there is no water in the hot tub.

Water Temperature:

Water temperature in excess of 40oC may be injurious to your health. We recommend you utilise the hot tub between 35oC to 38oC. A thermometer has been provided and if the temperature gets too hot you should stoke the fire less and add cold water using the hose provided .

Water Levels:

The more bodies in the hot tub (maximum 6) the less water is required to be in the tub. Every person will raise the level by 5 to 7cm  We recommend that you fill the hot tub to the recommended level 10cm above the highest seat level and heat the water;  it is then easy to add more water rather than heat a larger amount of water you will then need to drain off. If you need to drain water out of the hot tub there is a tap located at the side. If the water is too hot, cold water should be added and any excess water drained off using the tap . DO NOT let the hot tub overflow.

Chemicals:

You will be supplied with ample chemicals in a closed container suitable for the duration of your hire period, do not use or add addition chemicals to the water other than the chemicals supplied by Fermanagh Lodges. DO NOT add bubble bath, foam wash or any form of washing up liquid of any description.

Cover:

A cover is supplied with the hot tub. Keep the cover on the hot tub at all times when it is not being used . When the hot tub is coming to temperature the cover should be left on so the hot tub can heat up. Only remove the cover when using the hot tub never leave the hot tub unsupervised without replacing the cover.  Whenever the hot tub is ready, the cover should be removed. This is a two person job. Do not stand or sit on the cover, and any damage to the cover will be taken out of your deposit. Replace the cover at the end of each time you use the hot tub it will keep your water warm and keeps the hot tub secure. You are responsible for the hot tub while you have it on hire.

Hot Tub Use and Rules:

Please abide by the following rules to ensure your use of the hot tub is safe:

  • No consumption of alcohol or drugs, food or drink during hot tub use.
  • Swim wear must be worn at all times.
  • Do not sit on the edge of the hot tub, rather use the seats provided in the tub.
  • Shower before getting into the hot tub and ensure feet are clean to avoid debris getting into the water.
  • No glasses, crockery, phones, or any other items should be in or near the hot tub.
  • No more than 6 persons in the hot tub at any given time.
  • No children under the age of 10 are allowed in the hot tub and any children over the age of 10 must be supervised at all times i.e. accompanied by an adult.
  • Please seek medical confirmation when using the hot tub to ensure it is safe for you to do so, especially if you have an underlying medical condition.
We recommend you spend no longer than 30 minutes at a time in the hot tub.

Your accommodation:

We ask you to please be mindful of your accommodation when using the hot tub, and take care not to bring excessive amounts of water back into your accommodation. Towels have been provided and extra are available on request. Please also be mindful of other accommodations and guests staying. We ask you to please keep the volume to a minimum past 10pm, and to finish using your Hot Tub at midnight.

Fermanagh Lodges are not liable for any injury or damage caused to you, or your property during hot tub hire. Fermanagh Lodges reserve the right to refuse hire, or cancel hire during a booking if it is deemed that the hot tub is being used incorrectly. You agree that Fermanagh Lodges Hot Tub Hire accept no liability for any personal injury or damage to any persons or property suffered during the period of your usage.
