7 Accessories for Your Inflatable Spa

Inflatable spas are fun to use. They’re also quite helpful as they help us relax. Also, inflatable spas present a good opportunity for family and friends to get together and spend time together.

The typical hot tub does not require any extra to work. Usually, you can use this equipment straight out of its packaging. While you might need to buy a few chemicals for sanitation purposes to ensure the water is safe for use, you really do not require any accessory to enjoy your hot tub.

Despite this, getting accessories for your inflatable spa and hot tub can boost the experience and make it more fun. If you want to get more out of your hot tub, read on to discover how to do so.

Spa Step

Inflatable spas come in different sizes. And while some are super shallow and easy to clamber over, some aren’t. If you do not want to struggle to get into your hot tub, you’ll do well to buy a spa step. It might not seem like much, but believe us when we say it will make a lot of difference and enhance your hot tub experience.

Note: ensure your spa step is non-slip. Its purpose is to help you conserve energy and ensure you do not struggle getting into your hot tub. That purpose would be defeated if you have to struggle to stay on your feet while trying to get into your inflatable spa.

Head Rest

The purpose of an inflatable hot tub is to relax and be comfortable. While you might think it’s enough to just sit there and soak in the water, we can assure you it can be much better. You can be even more relaxed and comfortable with a head rest. A spa head rest is even more important if you’re tall. While a short person might be able to make do with the hot tub’s rim, your head will probably overshoot it. This might lead to some discomfort, especially if you’re in the tub for a long time.

There are different types of head rests. However, we recommend that you get an adjustable one you can fill with water. With this, you will be able to dictate how firm, and by extension, how comfortable it is to you.

Spa Seat

Unlike their regular counterparts, inflatable spas do not come with seats. If you use the hot tub sparingly, you might be comfortable sitting on its floor. However, this will be harder to do if you use it frequently. Another compelling reason to purchase a spa seat is back pain. If you suffer from this ailment, sitting on the spa floor is not advisable.

There are different types of spa seat available. For example, there are those made from plastic and are, therefore sturdy and farm. Another popular type is made from inflatable material which you can then fill with water to weigh it down. The third type requires marble to weigh it down.

Read up on reviews of these accessories to find out how others feel about them. By doing this, you will be able to determine which of the spa seat types is most comfortable for you.

Cup Holder and Tray

People hardly ever just sit in their inflatable hot tubs. They’re more likely to press their phones, snack, and drink water. However, the sides of inflatable spas are not flat and this presents the problem of where to place your drinking cups, phones, and snacks.

To solve this problem, some people place a table near the hot tub. But this is hardly efficient. More often than not, they will have to stand up to reach out to the table and pick what they need.

Cup holders and tray solve this problem. The accessory is exactly as it sounds: it has a contraption for holding cups and a flat area where you can place other items like your hot tub remote control.

The best thing about this accessory is that you can easily attach it to the hot tub’s side and it’ll stay in place.

Floor Protector

The Spa Floor Protector is an accessory that enhances inflatable hot tub’s insulation capabilities.

The average floor protector has different components most of which come together to form a mat. The inflatable hot tub lies on this mat, which then decreases heat loss and ensures the tub retains its warmth for a longer period.


Scumbugs are a must have accessory for every inflatable hot tub owner. These spongy items float on top of your hot tub’s water and absorbs all form of impurities, such as sweat and body oils, that could aggregate to form dirt or scum.

LED Floating Lights

If you intend to stay in your hot tub till night on some occasions, you’ll benefit from having an LED floating light. And given the fact that this accessory serves two purposes, we think it is worth investing in.

The two purposes these lights serve are functional and aesthetic. By functional, we mean it will provide a means for you to navigate your surroundings at night. And by aesthetic, we refer to its beautification functions. LED lights come in multiple colors and this, apart from lighting up the night, gives an ethereal and elegant aura to your spa and surroundings.

Think of it. A night in your hot tub awash in blue, green, and red lighting. You could even have music playing in the background and a cup of something sweet in your hands. Sounds like bliss, doesn’t it? We think so, too.
