You’ve made the decision to take the plunge and purchase a new hot tub. Now whether you’re getting a small hot tub for inside your home or a large hot tub for the center piece of a backyard party space, there’s a few items you’ll also need to make your hot tub experience easier and more enjoyable.
First, you’ll need to be able to enter and exit the hot tub. So don’t forget a set of stairs. It is possible to get in and out of a hot tub without a set of stairs, but for safety reasons and convenience, remember a sturdy non-skid set of stairs.
Second, when it comes time to remove your hot tub cover, you’ll need a safe place to store it while enjoying the tub. Don’t forget to purchase a cover lifter. A cover lifter is the best way to keep the cover looking and performing like new. Most hot tub covers cost $300.00 to $600.00 to replace, so throwing it on the ground after removing it shouldn’t be an option. Protecting the cover from cuts, rips, and holes will not only save money by extending the life of the cover but can also save hundreds of dollars a year in electrical costs by properly insulating the tub. Using a cover lifter will keep the hot tub cover off the ground which will prevent damage and it also aids in removal by allowing one person to remove a large bulky cover by themselves. So for the convenience and the longevity of your hot tub cover, don’t forget a cover lifter.
Third, you’ll want to keep your new hot tub clean and free of dirt and debris that may fall in the tub or be tracked in by your feet. The easiest way to remove dirt from a hot tub is a hand held manual vacuum. The most popular device is the SPA WAND. The SPA WAND allows the seats and floor of a hot tub to be cleaned with out draining it. Don’t forget a vacuum, it will save time and money while also keeping your new hot tub looking great.
