Hot Tub Instructions:

  • The hot tubs in our homes are cleaned & serviced by a professional hot tub company before and after each guest.
  • Each time you enter the hot tub you add soil to the tub. Each person who uses the hot tub must take a cleansing shower before each use of the hot tub. Please do not wear any lotions or make-up while in the hot tub. Do not use soaps of any kind while in the hot tub.
  • Be sure to rinse off any dirt or other debris from your feet before getting into the hot tub.
  • Beer or wine spilled in the tub or a child urinating in the tub will neutralize the chemical balance allowing bacteria to grow. This may cause skin reactions later.
  • Over usage by too many people may cause the hot tub to stop working. If at any time during your stay the hot tub becomes cloudy or looks dirty, stop usage and call Discover Sunriver Vacation Rentals immediately. We will call the hot tub company for you.
  • Do not eat food or smoke while using the hot tub. If you drink beverages, they must be in cans or plastic.
