This blog entry will allow you to identify and adapt your hot tub to the best practices and recommendations for preventing COVID-19 that Aquavia Spa has established jointly with ASOFAP (Spanish Association of Swimming Pool Sector Professionals).
Firstly, we need to be clear about the message from the World Health Organisation (WHO): Due to the hygiene and sanitary conditions required by law, the water in swimming pools and hot tubs does no transmit COVID-19 and it is 100% safe. It is scientifically proven that properly-filtered water with a suitable level of disinfectant is an environment in which viruses and bacteria cannot survive. Furthermore, the chlorination, high temperatures and high humidity in the environment significantly reduce the transmission and spread of this virus.

but it also has the disinfecting power to remove any viruses or germs that may enter the water”.
