A comfortable temperature will be between 90 and 105 F. Experiment and find what is comfortable for you. For public spas many states have laws regarding a maximum temperature, usually 107 F, so check local regulations if this is for public use.

How old do you have to be to get into a sauna?

There is no age limit. I was a baby when I was first time in sauna, so I would guess when the baby is old enough to be on the sandbox on the playground and as long as the heat in the sauna is not really high and someone is supervising the small child, it's okay. The time spent should be very limited as the stress put on the child's circulatory system is high.

How does a hot tub cover work?

Designed for when the hot tub or spa is not being used, covers help keep the tub free of debris, prevent children or pets from falling in, and improve energy efficiency by trapping heat.

For safety, look for covers that are listed with ASTM (the American Society of Testing and Materials) and UL (Underwriters Laboratories). For insulation, covers are rated by thickness and often include two measurements of thickness at the middle and sides. "Four to two inch" covers are generally good insulators, sloping from 4" thick in the middle to 2" thick at the edges.

Covers can be heavy and awkward to move, so many larger covers include built-in lifters that help you move them.
