Hot tubs are popular water features used for recreation and therapy. While home spas are meant to be simple to use, owners still need to practice safety precautions. Consider installing these hot tub accessories to help keep your family safe and give you peace of mind.
3 Ways to Use Your Hot Tub More Safely
1. Install Handrails
A professional can install a spa-side handrail to make entering and exiting your hot tub easier. Rails are excellent features for seniors, people with mobility-limitations, and children. Additionally, rails provide a safety net, especially if the area round your tub is dimly lit. A professional can install them securely.
2. Non-Slip Steps
If you own an above-ground hot tub, non-slip steps should be installed to the exterior to help users step in and out of the tub. Steps can be specially designed to match the exterior of your fixture and should be constructed to withstand exposure to water through the years. A variety of materials, including stone, are available.
3. Hot Tub Cover
It’s important to secure the tub from children, pets, and debris when it’s not in use. Quality covers come with child safety locks and help insulate your tub for energy efficiency. Covers can be heavy and bulky, so consider adding a cover lifter to your purchase. Installed to the outer shell of the tub, lifters slide and lock covers out of the way and keep them off the ground.
