What is the ideal temperature for a hot tub? My thermostate runs from 82-104. My friend says it should be set at 104 for to keep it clean, but i think that's danagerous for my health. Please clarify this matter for us.

In brief: The

The thermostat you are running it at is appropriate.
Too warm can cause patients to feel light--headed or pass out. Warm water can grow bacteria, but typical cleaning/chlorine that you perform for hot tub maintenance will take care of that.
