Many travellers in every country have bad experiences when they use a jacuzzi spa bath/whirlpool bath in a hotel/resort/Airbnb - most have jacuzzi spa baths.

If the spa bath isnt 'flushed-clean', its like a toilet that hasnt been flushed!

All sorts of foreign matter, hair, black muck (amongst other) are what we get turned off with.

The bacteria thrives in this muck that builds up in the pipes, jets and pump in a jacuzzi spa bath.

The hotel jacuzzi spa bath should be 'flushed-clean' after every checkout for the next guests 'health and safety'.

Here's a great analogy:

WHY WE NEED TO CLEAN SPA BATHS
When inducting your cleaning staff, it is important they read this analogy to fully
understand the reasons why and the consequences that come if we don’t ‘flush clean’
the spa baths after EVERY use.
The following analogy points out the validity of SPA.GIENE’S message:
A consumer is preparing to take a spa bath. The bathtub is cleaned and
immediately filled with sanitary bathwater. A microbiologist tests and
confirms that both tub and water are clean. The bather is prepared to step
into the tub when the microbiologist reveals a small vial and explains, "This
vial is filled with a mixture of pathogenic bacteria. I am going to add it to
the water in the tub. I don't know whether you will be infected by these
bacteria or not, but I want to make you aware of its presence. Now you can
proceed and take your bath."
If you were the consumer, would you enter the tub?
This question has been posed to consumers, interior designers, builders,
infection control practitioners, hotel managers and others, and not one person
has stated a willingness to bathe under the conditions described above.

This water sample was taken from a piped
whirlpool bath in a labor & delivery room of a
major medical facility in Denver, CO.
Spa baths are common items in hospital labor and
delivery facilities. Should women and their babies
be unknowingly exposed to bacteria in piped or air
l baths?
Hotels typically offer spa baths in guest rooms
and luxury suites. Should guests be forced to
bathe in bathwater containing residue from
previous guests?
In testing conducted at theTexas A&M University
USA, 100% of water samples taken from piped
and air spa baths from locations throughout the
United States, tested positive with high
concentrations of infectious bacteria.
