Consider the Temperature
How long a hot tub jet should run depends on how fast it takes to appropriately heat the water. Hot tub jets that function efficiently and warm water quickly, according to www.HotTubsAndHomeSpas.com, produce "a number of therapeutic benefits such as stress relief, tension relief" and relaxation of sore muscles.
Beware of Dangers
Running hot tub jets too long can mean danger to pregnant women and children. For pregnant women, sitting in water which exceeds temperatures of 100 degrees Fahrenheit for longer than 15 minutes "can ultimately lead to birth defects or possibly even miscarriage", according to www.HotTubsAndHomeSpas.com. In addition, children "do not adapt to heat as well as adults do."
Hot tub jets should run until water reaches a maximum of 104 degrees, states www.HotTubsAndHomeSpas.com. Appropriately heated water can offer relaxing benefits but caution should be taken when children and pregnant women enter. The length of time hot tub jets take to increase water temperature depends upon hot tub voltage and motor capacity.
