Opinion on using hot tubs

My son just bought a hot tub and my husband is on PD.
Wondering if he can go in.?
I realize public tubs are loaded with bacteria but this is just family going in this one.
Im getting mixed opinions.
Any advice appreciated

PD patients should not take tub baths or sit in hot tubs. there is a risk for bacteria even in a family tub and this could easily cause peritonitis. During training did your nurse tell you that showers are ok once the exit site is healed? this is the safest practice for anyone on peritoneal dialysis.

No, we had to give up our new spa when my husband was put on PD.
