The reality of the Hot Tub ?

... may have been well summarised in a quote on the Radio 4 programme "You and Yours" this lunchtime by a gentleman from the Swimming Pools Association about the current boom in swimming pools.

 

"What about Hot Tubs?"
"Hot tubs are the devil's own swimming pool."
 

This was known, in almost all its features, to Hieronymous Bosch the artist - 500 years ago.

This is "Tondal's  Vision".

 

(No, I don't like hot tubs very much.)

Of course the man from the swimming pool association would say that.
 

Cold tub today, turned it down to 32 degrees Celsius.

Absolutely 🙂

 

I've put a question mark on the title,  just for you.

This reminds me of a property in the Scottish Highlands I was interested in last summer, the agents made a big point about the wonderful hot tub outside. Mmmmm, thought I, for hot tub please read "midges banqueting hall". Anyway, when I went to view another spot nearby in November what do I find by the side of the road??? the remnants of a dismantled hot-tub, presumably awaiting collection for disposal 👀

Used to fit and service spa baths.

The worse job I ever did was cleaning out the DE filter at the Sheffield YMCA.

I have no idea what those young men got up to in it.

 

Also got this https://www.healthline.com/health/hot-tub-folliculitis from the Bedford leisure centre spa bath.

Only stood in for 2 minutes.

 

"Hot tubs are the devil's own swimming pool."

This does not even start to describe them.
