Whether you bought a hot tub just recently or you’ve had one for a while, there are always hot tub accessories to be added to make your hot tub experience even better. Some are there for comfort, others for fun and some are bought for safety and hygiene purposes. These come separately, but the good thing is that most of these hot tub accessories are compatible with a large number of tubs, so you can easily customize yours.

Because the most excellent hot tub accessories for hot tubs depend on what you like (or think is necessary), we selected a range of different products for various purposes. Be sure to check the buying guide below, where some things will be explained in more detail.

How To Choose Hot Tub Accessories – Buying Guide


There is a wide array of hot tub accessories available, even aside from the ones we featured. The most important thing is that they are practical, comfortable, and durable so you can enjoy your experience without worrying about other things.


Many hot tub accessories were designed to make your experience even smoother. Products like pillows and seats will allow you to relax for a longer time period without feeling discomfort. Drink and food holders allow you to have snacks and refreshments in arm’s reach. Different fragrances can be added to the water to neutralize the chemical smell and improve the sensation. Of course, many other products add to comfort too.

Some hot tub accessories add value to your experience, making it significantly better. Many tubs are too high for some people to climb in. That’s why adding steps as well as a handrail can make the tub accessible to everyone. Of course, you need somewhere to put the tub, and not everyone has a suitable surface. This is why smart decks can be placed on almost any surface making it safe and reliable for your tub. Adding a sun umbrella can also be a nice touch, because it can shelter you from sun and rain, enabling you to enjoy yourself anytime.


Some accessories are not very fun but are necessary to keep the tub functional. You already know that various water care chemicals need to be added. They preserve the pH balance and sanitize the water. Invest in quality products, because they make it safe for you, and prolong the lifespan of your tub. Also, you need some cleaners – vacuums, skimmers, or similar. They allow you to quickly remove any debris. Be sure to use the cover you got with the tub to prevent things from falling in.



Q: Can I Use My Pool Accessories For My Hot Tub?


This depends on which accessories you want to use. Most of them are completely safe to be used in both – stairs, handrails, hot tub tables, pillows, holders, or some funny hot tub accessories like toys for kids. However, the only thing that should not be mixed is cleaning chemicals.

While contents seem to be the same, using pool chemicals in a tub can disrupt the pH level, because these are more concentrated. Also, the water temperature and water circulation in a hot tub help disperse chemicals much faster, so usually, a smaller amount is required. To be safe rather than sorry, it’s best that you buy products that were made for hot tubs.

Q: What Are The Top 3 Spa Accessories?


Even though the choice is large, some accessories seem to be more useful in everyday situations. Our choice is steps, cover lifts, and umbrellas. Having steps allows everyone to get in with ease. Top-quality products are very durable, have non-slip design, and are can be matched to your tub (in terms of looks).

cover lift makes a boring task much easier. The mechanism allows you to take the cover off and put it back on quickly without tiring yourself. It also helps the cover last longer, because it’s folded nicely instead of it being on the ground.

Finally, a hot tub umbrella is an obvious choice. These create a large shade, and if they are made from quality materials (like the one we featured in our reviews above), they have UV protection to prevent your skin from burning. They will also shield you from rain, which is very convenient.
