If you have an older model the child's hair could get caught in the intake and they could drown.I would also be concerned with temp too hot and the length of time spent in the tub. Could fall asleep and drown if not supervised.

Hot tubs themselves are perfectly safe for children over the age of 3 as long as there is an adult with them in the tub. The temperature of the water should be kept lower than for an adult. Adults can stand temperatures up to 104 degrees, but children should not use a tub over 100 degrees, and even then should only stay in there for 15 minutes.
