We have had a hot tub for years. Its covered in our blanket liability policy. Teenagers do all kinds of stuff with and without suits after dark, its family business, not a community concern. The hottub groups informal policy is suits are worn during the daytime, after nine pm or before 8am there are naked people. In my limited observations, Rarely do our teens choose to be naked with adults, but they are naked amoung themselves and their "squeezes" during the dark, late evening hours. I would say that our unstated policy is that whatever happens in a hot tub, between consenting naked people after dark is the business of the people involved. I am quite sure the parents of any teens in our neighborhood are fully capable of teaching their children whatever they need to know about these things. We have an electric unit and it uses power, although its on a timer so its hot at certain times (mostly the naked times). The whole thing is paid for by a users group, not the association. The users group is less than a fourth of the community at this point, I am not sure about exact numbers, anybody not in the user group can use the hot tub for a fee. Since I have skin reactions to chemicals like chlorine, I don't use the tub and so don't know how much the per use fee is, but I am sure it's not much more than a dollar at most. I think the monthly user group fee is $10? which covers maintaince, electric use, and a small capital fund for improvements like a new cover and such. Lock the hot tub? This would bring out howls of outrage I am sure. We have more kids than I can even keep track of and child safety is not an issue with the hot tub, although ours is above ground and requires fairly strong person to move the cover so I doubt a stray toddler could even get in.
