Hot Tub Accessories
As any experienced hot tub owner will attest, accessories make a big difference. Sure, soaking in the warm, bubbling water is the ultimate goal, but you want some amenities as well, right? Here are some of the more popular hot tub accessories you might want to put on your wish list for this year.
If you spend more than a few minutes at a time in your hot tub, you've probably experienced the annoyance of a sore neck from leaning back against the edge of your tub's lining. Try a hot tub pillow! These ingenious hot tub accessories are usually made from vinyl coated foam padding. Look for the pillows that have suction cups to hold them firmly in place while being totally portable. You can enjoy a soak anywhere you want in your tub and still be comfortable.
Like to enjoy an adult beverage while you soak in your hot tub? A great accessory for any type of tub is a side bar. You can get one that conforms to the contours of your tub, whatever its shape, for a snug fit. Now, when you want a sip of wine or water or just a towel to dry off your face, it'll be as close as reaching out your hand.
Keeping your hot tub clean is essential, of course. To increase the time between cleanings, try an oil absorber. These nifty accessories are inexpensive and easy to use. They will remove body oils, suntan lotion residue, and other unpleasant substances that can quickly dirty your hot tub water.
Side storage steps are a terrific idea in hot tub accessories. They provide easy access to stand-alone tubs, while pulling double duty as handy storage bins for things like towels, chemical treatments, and tanning lotion.
Maintaining your hot tub is the dreary side of owning one. It's absolutely necessary, but can be a pain to keep up with, especially draining and refilling. Fortunately, you can get a battery powered or electric pump to handle this bothersome chore for you. The days of using a bucket to get out those last few gallons will be long gone. A worthy and inexpensive purchase!
