- Soaking in hot water causes blood vessel to expand, causing fluctuations in blood pressure
- There can be a long list of bacteria in the water if it is not chlorinated properly. These bacteria can be bad news for lower immune systems.
- Certain sedating medications can cause alarm when mixed with the drowsiness effect caused by soaking in the hot water.

Don't get in the hot tub while drinking alcohol or using sedating medications
Check with your doctor first if you have any circulatory issues
Use steps with hand rails
Never hot tub alone
