Modified on 2009/10/14 21:39 by admin
Hot tubs have always been associated with stress relief and leisure. If left untreated, though, a hot tub can become a dangerous product full of bacteria and other germs that can leave an unsuspecting bather seriously ill.

The hot water in a spa can be the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive. Users have complained of conditions ranging from relatively minor skin rashes to serious disorders such as Legionnaire's disease. Proper upkeep of any hot tub is extremely important.

Doctors recommend the continual use of water cleaning substances such as chlorine and bromine. Failure to properly maintain a hot tub or spa can result in legal liability for the owner.

See your doctor if you have experienced serious health problems after using a hot tub. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
