Hot tubs and spas are excellent at providing temporary relief and relaxation from aches, pains, and day-to-day stress. If you suffer from physical injury or illness, it is crucial that your spa has safety accessories and features. If you have limited range of motion, a three-inch-high spa can be dangerous to get in and out.Strategically choosing hot tub accessoriescan make your spa as enjoyable as possible. Here are 4 tips to help you  make the most of your home spa.

Hot Tub Steps

Hot tub steps are essential in preventing slipping and falling when entering and exiting your spa. They reduce the risk of accidents and are made of water-resistant materials. Many steps come in a variety of styles that can hold up to 300 pounds. If you do not want to buy well gripped steps, you can alwaysbuild your own.

Handrails

Slips and falls are one of the mostcommon causes of deathin the home. You should consider installing handrails on the outside of your spa if you require more security. Handrails help support your weight and are essential to make a safe transition from the spa to the spa step. They can either screw onto the supports of your spa cabinet or are secured by a flat plate that slides under the spa. There are handrails with battery-powered LED lights making it safe to use your hot tub at night.

Cover Lifters

A hot tub cover can be massive requiring effort to remove and replace. A cover lifter attaches to the spa shell and lets you remove the cover with little to no effort. You should consider acover lifer to help protect your back from injury. A cover lifter can increase the lifetime of your spa cover and prevent normal wear and tear. The ease of use may ensure you use your hot tub more often.

Cleaning and Care

Not only are safety accessories essential when it comes to your spa, but proper care is also necessary. Here are some tips and tricks to help extend the life of your spa. Keeping your hot tub cover clean will prevent mildew or musty odor. Just add a small amount of bleach with water and wipe down your cover every few months. Using an enzyme product in your spa will break down fatty lipids that will keep your tub cleaner. It will help your chemicals sanitize the water better and prevent scum from forming. It's important to check your water levels regularly. An unforeseen leak can lead to severe problems with your spa. When the water levels are low, your heaters and pumps may stop working causing the water in your spa to freeze. If you do not use your hot tub regularly, you should check the water levels each week.

A spa is a great way to add value to your home, but you do not want your new addition to cme with more risks. Some simple additions to your hot tub can make the entire experience safer, and far more enjoyable for you and your family.
