Hot tubs are a wonderful addition to any home. It’s a great place to relax while taking a warm bath because they’re spacious, comfortable and have a great atmosphere. There’s just something amazing about being in a hot tub, surrounded by the beautiful décor that gives a certain relaxing and opulent ambiance. However, it’s important to consider a few accessories before installing one of these beauties.
When you’re shopping for accessories, you’ll quickly find that there are hundreds of options available to choose from. Whether it’s cooling off from a long day at work or entertaining your special someone, having the proper accessories for your hot tub can make that experience all the better.
However, selecting all the necessary accessories can be overwhelming, but don’t worry, we at Everything Billiards & Spas are here to help you. Accessories are one of our favorite aspects of hot tub installation. We’ve done our research for you and put together a list of the best hot tub accessories to help improve your experience. So, if you own a hot tub or you’re planning to buy one from us, be sure to read on!
Hot Tub Cover
The first item on our list is a hot tub cover. The best hot tub covers are highly durable and protect your investment. It protects the hot tub from damage and also keeps your indoor hot tubs clean. A cover can also stop heat loss with an insulated cover; this preserves heat and saves energy.
It won’t keep your water hot by itself, but it will aid in the effectiveness of your heater and insulation. This results in lowering your heating costs and spending more time in your hot tub with less money spent repeatedly heating it!
Floating Bar Tray
If you love to cook, host parties, and drink delicious cocktails in your hot tub, a floating bar tray is exactly what you need. The bar tray helps keep drinks and snacks off the floor, which is crucial for those with pets.
Since it is a floating tray, no one needs to climb in and out of the hot tub to get a cold beverage or appetizer during a relaxing spa session. The tray can even be used to hold candles for an evening of relaxation. Furthermore, these versatile trays are made with sturdy plastic, so they won’t tip or spill your drinks when being pushed across the pool.
Towel Holder or Towel Warmer
Towel holders and towel warmers are both great accessories to add to your hot tub installation. These simple products keep your towels off the ground, keeping them clean and dry so they are ready when you need them.
It makes so much sense, but many people don’t think to include a towel holder or towel warmer when installing their hot tub. You will, of course, be wet after getting out of the hot tub, and you want to be able to dry off easily and comfortably.
Anyone who has ever been in a hot tub will agree that all pools and hot tubs present a serious safety hazard. To help minimize the risk, we recommend installing traction steps. With the specially designed and engineered traction steps, you can easily get in or out of your hot tub with secure traction that holds your feet firmly in place without slipping.
Great for kids and adults alike, traction steps are a sensible addition to any hot tub area and offer a steady surface to safely enter and exit your tub. It’s a wise investment to take care of your hot tub and add these convenient steps for easy access. You can now easily get into your hot tub in the morning, noon, or night, rain or shine.
Water Level Sensor
Not all hot tub designs are meant to be filled to the brim. Ideally, your water level should never be above the maximum fill line. This prevents damage to your equipment and structural slabs. It’s essential to monitor your water level and never let it run low. To make sure this doesn’t happen, you’ll want a water level sensor installed in your hot tub. This makes monitoring easy and on the go.
The purpose of lighting in your hot tub is to add ambiance, but it also serves as a safety feature. This is why most people who own a hot tub have some sort of underwater lighting installed, though the type of lighting can vary widely.
Increase the fun factor of your hot tub installation with underwater LED lighting. LED lights are silent, long-lasting, and energy-efficient; they use only about 5 watts of electricity. What’s more interesting is that they come in all types of shapes and colors, for you to experiment on the different ambiances each creates.
There are several accessories for hot tub installation. While these accessories aren’t necessary, they can make your experience more enjoyable than it already may be. One of these accessories is a spa vacuum.
A spa vacuum makes it easy to remove debris from your hot tub without you having to clean it with elements such as your hands or a scrub brush. They are available in the large size, which resembles a shop-vac style vacuum, or the smaller version that is often handheld and battery operated.
Spa pillows are a great addition to any hot tub. They provide increased ergonomic support, making the whole hot tub experience more enjoyable. If you have back or shoulder problems, pillows are especially beneficial for comfort.
Water Purifiers & Filters
Every hot tub owner needs to keep their spa water clean and free from contaminants, which requires the use of quality filters. Hot tub water purifiers and filters allow you to keep your water clean. They also help your hot tub run as efficiently as possible by optimizing how it circulates the water in the tub.
Chlorine/Bromine Floating Monitor
Spas and hot tubs don’t require chemicals to keep the water clean. However, most owners will choose to use some form of sanitizer. Chlorine and bromine are popular sanitizing choices.
These sanitizers help kill bacteria in the water, but it’s crucial to monitor the balance of chemicals with a floating monitor just like you would in a pool. A proper chemical balance is critical for maintaining healthy water.
