How Long Should You Spend in a Hot Tub?

Spa Expo

We are the go-to dealer for HotSpring® Spas in Austin, Texas

Imagine soaking in a bubbly bliss, your pain melting away and your sore muscles relaxing for the first time all day. You decide you never want to get out, but of course at some point you know you have to. So how long can you stay in your hot tub? Well the answer depends on several factors, but never fear you can always climb back in. 


Hydrotherapy is the use of water for pain relief and is a practice that can do wonders for arthritis and neurological disorders. When you’re using your hot tub for holistic healing, the recommended time is 20 minutes, but you can go a little longer if you need to as long as you’re comfortable.


Fire up the grill, invite over the gang, and hang out in a bubbly paradise. Depending on the temperature settings you can stay in your hot tub up to 45 minutes. The lower the temperature the longer you can soak. Ideally, you’ll want to keep it at 100 to 102 degrees, but decreasing it to 98 degrees can keep the party going a bit longer. Remember, you can always jump back in later after a short break. 

Weather Considerations 

One of the biggest things to keep in mind is the temperature outside. If the weather is really hot, or even unusually cold, your body will react differently when it’s time for it you cool to your basal temperature. Try not to go from one extreme to another and stay there for more than necessary, let your body cool itself slowly.


If you notice yourself getting dizzy, light-headed, or nauseous it’s time to get out. Pay attention to your body and remember to stay hydrated.
