Hot tubs and spas need to have a good quality rigid cover fitted. All new hot tubs come with a rigid cover included in the price. The rigid cover will keep the valuable heat in, keep the hot tub safely closed between sessions and you will save money because you'll be using fewer chemicals.
To assist with the removal of your rigid cover, a caddy or cover valet is a must. It will also help to prolong the life of the cover.
A spa-side umbrella is a good alternative to the traditional gazebo. Rotating a full 360o, it offers total protection from the elements whatever the weather.
For extra comfort or for a small family member, you might consider a hot tub or spa cushion. For those who might need easier access into your hot tub, a set of sturdy steps and a safety rail will be ideal.
