In brief: Probably ok

If you have just had a UTI from a hot tub once, there is no reason to believe you will get one every time you use a pool or hot tub.
Make sure that the hot tub or pool you are using is cleaned properly, and use the bathroom after getting out of the hot tub. If you continue to get infections after using pools or hot tubs, you should see your gynecologist.
