If you have recently purchased a hot tub, several outdoor hot tub accessories can make this new addition to your home more inviting. Hot tubs are a great place to relax, especially after a busy day or strenuous exercise. You can also spend time in the hot tub to relieve tense muscles and chronic joint pain. This can result in getting better sleep and can also improve your mobility.
There are also some great accessories you can get for your hot tub. These accessories can make the water or the actual hot tub structure more comfortable. There are also a number of hot tub accessories that make it safer for elderly family members or small children to enjoy the hot tub.
Hot Tub Cover Lifters
The covers that come with hot tubs can be difficult to lift since they are extremely heavy. The bulky nature of the covers also makes them hard to move. This is why cover lifters make great hot tub accessories. A lifter allows you to replace and remove the hot tub cover with greater ease, without putting the cover on the ground. A cover lifter that is durable and made from quality materials is best. There are lots of cheap hot tub cover lifters out there, but you’ll likely have to replace the lifters often.
Water Care Accessories
It’s best to maintain your hot tub’s water by testing it regularly. This will show you which chemicals or substances are too scarce or abundant. Water testing also reveals the pH balance of the water and lets you know if there is too much or too little chlorine. However, you can purchase a water care system, which consistently treats the water. This reduces the time you’ll spend on spa maintenance. There are both conventional and saltwater systems available. Both types of systems can reduce chemical buildup in the water and purify the water. If you have small children or older relatives who use the hot tub often, constant water care can help to make the spa a safer environment for them.
Spa Monitoring Accessories
Easily adjusting your hot tub settings, even from a distance, can make having an outdoor spa even more convenient. Remote monitoring allows you to make sure your spa water is healthy. You can also save energy by synchronizing the times that the hot tub turns on and off. Spa monitoring tools can also allow you to adjust the water temperature, even if you are not in the hot tub. If your hot tub needs repairs or has to be serviced, there are monitoring programs that will notify you promptly. This can also help you save money since you will be able to fix any issues with your spa before they get out of hand.
Steps and Handrails
Some hot tubs can be about three feet tall, which means that it may be practical to purchase steps for the spa. This allows you to step into the hot tub safely. Handrails also make it easier to get in and out of the hot tub. Handrails are ideal when you want to make sure your friends and relatives can climb in and out of the hot tub without losing balance.
