What Winter Hot Tub Accessories Should I Have?
To use your spa during the winter months, you will need to protect your hot tub from the elements.
This winter, accessorize your hot tub with the perfect items so you can enjoy your spa all season long. These winter hot tub accessories will help make your spa safer during the winter, and help you and your friends enjoy your experience to the fullest!
Take a look at the top eight winter hot tub accessories.
This is a no-brainer. Every hot tub needs a cover that fits perfectly, or else your hot tub may not stay hot. If your cover gets waterlogged, it can lose its insulating properties. If heat is escaping, then all the money you are spending to heat your hot tub is being wasted.
Hot Tub Cap
A hot tub cap is a protective addition used on top of your spa cover. This cap helps protect your cover from additional moisture, and also helps retain temperature if your cover is losing heat. Hot tub caps are available in most sizes and will extend the life of any spa cover.
Some hot tub caps feature a reflective surface to melt snow faster, which also helps deter most animals (like birds, chipmunks, squirrels, etc.) that can ruin your spa.
A hot tub or spa blanket is perfect for cold, northern climates. Floating spa blankets are usually available in three variations: radiant with an aluminum underside, foam comprised of closed-cell foam, and economy made of extruded PE (polyethylene). Spa insulating blankets are square-shaped and can be cut to fit your hot tub or spa.
Heated Floor Mats
Unless your hot tub is directly adjacent to your house, walking across a cold, icy or snowy pathway to get to your spa can be dangerous. Consider heating sidewalks and pavers with electric cables placed beneath, or, more economically, use heated floor mats to keep walkways warm, and free of ice and snow. You can find them in multiple sizes, and they can also be used on steps and stairways.
Also dealing with hot tub safety, handrails are the perfect winter accessory for safely entering and exiting your spa. A spa handrail can help you safely navigate that last big, awkward step into your hot tub. A handrail is essential for anyone getting out of the hot tub, especially after extended time spent in your spa.
Floatable Drink Holders
Don’t want to keep getting in and out of the hot tub to get another beverage when the weather’s cold? Try floatable drink holders! There are many styles, shapes, and sizes available. Find the right one for your hot tub and make sure you get extras for your guests!
Non-Slip Spa Pillows
When you really want to relax in your hot tub, try a spa pillow. A non-slip spa pillow allows you to rest your head and provides neck support while you enjoy your spa.
What is the coldest part about enjoying a hot tub in the winter? Getting out, of course! Nothing beats a nice, warm towel when drying off in the cold air. Ask us today about installing a heated towel warmer for your hot tub or spa!
