A hot tub is a great place to relax and release tension after a hard day at work. It’s a beneficial spot to unwind in the evening, improving your quality of sleep. A spa is a satisfying place to spend time with family and friends, promoting conversation and connection. You can take this relaxing, beneficial experience and turn it up a notch with the help of a few essential accessories. Below is a list of useful and/or fun hot tub accessories to make your soaking session luxurious. 

  • Spa pillows: Specifically designed to attach to the headrests in your spa, waterproof spa pillows cradle your head and neck, adding to your hot tub bliss. A comfortable pillow ensures you can stay in the water for as long as you wish.
  • Spa Steps: A good set of spa steps is an essential accessory for any spa. They make entry and exit safer, easier and less awkward. Look for steps with large, slip-resistant treads for safety.
  • Side rail:  A side rail allows for easy spa entry and exit, providing increased safety and peace of mind. A base plate slips under the hot tub cabinet, keeping the rail stable as it supports your weight. Some styles even come with battery-powered LED mood lighting!
  • Booster Seat: For our shorter customers a booster seat or jiggle seat as we like to call it can get your head and shoulders out of the water. No more tucking your legs underneath or little ones having no place to sit. 
  • Spa vacuum: Hot tubs gather debris; sand, dirt, leaves, small pebbles and even bugs! To help clear this detritus, try a spa vacuum. Look for a model with a skimmer, brush, and nozzle, to help you handle a variety of substances.
  • Spa umbrella: Aesthetically pleasing and practical, a spa umbrella keeps the sunlight off while you relax and is an affordable alternative to a traditional gazebo. Look for a version with 360 degrees of travel as well as a crank and tilt mechanism that provides trouble-free operation. 
  • Spa caddy: A hot tub accessory you may not think of, a spa caddy allows you to sip cool drinks while you soak, ensuring you maintain hydration while relaxing. Put drinks, phones, snacks, towels and spa accessories safely within reach on a side tray
  • Filter Cleaning Tool: Rinsing dirt and debris from filter pleats is time-consuming and difficult! Filter tools are designed to help with the task. They attach to your garden hose, delivering a powerful, targeted spray designed to penetrate and allow you to clean your filter thoroughly and easily. 
  • Digital chlorine tester: Have trouble reading and interpreting test strips? A digital tester makes the job easy! Choose one that measures chlorine, pH and alkalinity. Spend more time enjoying your hot tub and less time maintaining it!
  • Oil and scum removers: Hot tubs collect organic contaminants; body oil, lotions, hair conditioners, cosmetics, shock debris. These substances cause scum at the waterline, clog filters and create problems balancing your water. Use a floating microfiber oil remover to trap scum on the surface. Some removers even draw out odours, helping keep water clear and fresh.
  • Cleaning accessories:  With children, friends and relatives dipping in and out of your hot tub, surface debris can become a problem. Try a handheld spa scoop to remove detritus from your spa or utilize a spa skimmer to accomplish the task.
  • Aromatherapy: From relaxing soothing aromas to fun and enlivening scents to therapy blends, aromatherapy sets the mood for your hot tub soak. Available in liquid and crystal form, hot tub aromatherapy products are specially formulated for your spa.
  • Waterproof cards: Want to spend a sunny afternoon in your hot tub? Try waterproof playing cards and enjoy your favourite card game while you relax!
