When you buy your inflatable hot tub, it’s ready to go straight out of the box. Apart from a few chemicals to sanitize the water and keep it clean and hygienic, you definitely don’t need to buy anything else to have a great time. What we found, though, during our first season with our very first inflatable hot tub, is that it quickly became a centrepiece of our backyard. We used it more and more, and it became both a sanctuary and a place for fun.
That’s why we recommend a few accessories, to make the hot tub and our experience in it even better.
Cup Holder and Tray
It’s important to stay hydrated when you’re using your portable spa. When we first bought our inflatable hot tub, we used a garden table alongside the hot tub to store a couple of drinks, as well as the hot tub remote control, sunglasses, and any other small items we had with us. But this meant we had to stand up and either lean over or get out of the hot tub every time to reach them.
Top Tip: Remove the cup holder and tray before you put the cover on your inflatable hot tub. It clips on and off very easily, and it folds up so you can store it away conveniently. The tray also floats, so you can put it into the hot tub and then put the cover on if you prefer.
Non-Slip Spa Step
Our inflatable hot tub is 28 inches high. I’m a couple of inches over 6 feet tall, so I can clamber over the side and get into – and out of – the hot tub with no real problem. These steps are super-sturdy, with a maximum load-bearing weight of 350 lbs. They’re also completely non-slip, even when they’re wet; they’re made from 100% waterproof materials; and they have UV inhibitors in the plastic so they won’t ever fade.
Top Tip: It can be difficult to assemble the steps if you follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Threfore the best way to put them together is this:
1. Stand the two side pieces about 3 feet apart. Pick the appropriate step according to the shape of your hot tub – either the curved one or the straight one. This will be the top step and the other will be the lower step.
2. Take the lower step and slightly lift the front of it, and place the back two sides into the slots on top of the side pieces.
3. Now step firmly on the front of the step to click it into place. You might need to push down with all your weight.
4. Repeat the same procedure for the top step.
Voila! You’re all set to go, and you have made access into and out of your hot tub so much easier. Getting these steps is a must if you are a little unsteady on your feet, as they’ll give you support and peace of mind.
This is another time-saving way to keep your inflatable hot tub water clean. No matter how hard you try, there's always some debris in your hot tub, such as leaves, sand and dirt.
These settle on the bottom of the hot tub floor and, as well as being unsightly and a little gross, they are uncomfortable under your bare feet.
Floating Thermal Blanket
Keeping the water in your inflatable hot tub as hot as possible is vital if you want to save time, energy and money.
One way to do this is to purchase a floating thermal blanket for your hot tub. This sits on top of the water and maintains your water’s heat at your preferred temperature.
Always keep in mind that heat rises. That means that most of your heat loss is from evaporation off the surface of your hot tub water. Even though your inflatable hot tub will come with a cover, any gap between the underside of the cover and the surface of the water is space where evaporation can take place.
