With summer in full swing, it’s time to get excited about hot tub parties, hosting friends, and decking out your spa with inflatable hot tub accessories. Get your hot tub ready for summer with our helpful tips and stock up on the best inflatables sure to take your hot tub to the next level.
Create the perfect environment
No matter how you’re planning on using your hot tub this summer, the first step to enjoyment is setting the scene for relaxation and fun.
A great way to create a relaxing ambiance is by adding plants around the sides of your hot tub. You could use plant stands or large planters to elevate the plants and make it feel like you’re in a private oasis.
Another option is to experiment with lighting. Switch the colors of your hot tub lights to reflect the mood you’re going for, and add external lighting to really set the scene. You could try adding lanterns or torches to your yard, or if your hot tub is indoors, switch out your light bulbs to a fun color.
Lastly, consider adding a shady element to your hot tub if it’s located outdoors. The summer months can get hot, so make sure you’re protecting yourself and your skin from the sun with some type of shade, like an umbrella, canopy, or gazebo.
Whether you’re aiming for a relaxing experience or want to get the party started this summer, you’ll need the perfect hot tub environment to make it happen.
Stock up on inflatable hot tub accessories
Now that you’ve got the perfect hot tub environment, take full advantage of your hot tub by selecting blow-up hot tub accessories to liven up your experience. Here are a few of our favorite inflatable spa accessories.
1. Drink float
This is the ultimate inflatable for hosting hot tub parties, but it’s also a practical choice if your hot tub lacks cup holders. With an inflatable drink float, you can relax in your tub with your refreshments in reach.
2. Inner tube
Your hot tub might not have a ton of space, but that doesn’t mean you can’t float in it! Lean back and relax in an inflatable pool ring and enjoy some quality alone time.
Just make sure to check the size of your inflatable ring before purchasing.
If you’re hosting a hot tub party, you might want to fill up an inflatable cooler with ice and drinks to keep on hand. That way, everyone has what they need right at their fingertips. Depending on what you’re looking for, you could purchase a themed cooler to match the vibe of your party, or you could select a more practical option made to keep your drinks really cold.
Similar to an inner tube, an inflatable raft is another great option for relaxing in your hot tub while getting some sun. Depending on the size of your spa, this inflatable hot tub accessory could be too big. But if you have the space, this is a great option for some individual relaxation time.
Take care of your hot tub
In the summer months, it’s common to use your hot tub more often. There’s nothing like taking a soak on a cool summer night.
With increased use comes the need for additional upkeep. Your Cal Spa is built to last, but make sure you’re properly caring for your tub with these quick tips.
1. Invest in a quality cover
One of the best ways to preserve the quality of your hot tub is by investing in a protective cover. Covering your hot tub keeps the water clean, protects the tub from sun damage, preserves the water temperature, and keeps harmful debris out.
If you’re noticing that your cover isn’t cutting it or has started to fall apart, consider upgrading to keep your hot tub in the best possible condition.
2. Keep up with chemical treatments
Keeping the water in your hot tub as clean as possible is not only great for hygiene but is also beneficial to preserving hot tub components.
When you let your hot tub go, hot tub parts can rust or grow mold, both things you definitely don’t want in your spa. By using the necessary chemicals and keeping up with cleaning, you’ll be able to prevent surface scum and bacteria from accumulating and ruining the mechanical components of your spa.
Some chemicals can be too harsh on those components, so ensure you find the right chemicals for your spa.
3. Change out the water
In the heat of summer, it’s easy to lose track of how long it’s been since you last cleaned out your hot tub and changed the water. If it’s been more than six months since you last changed out the water, consider taking the time to refresh it. You, and your summer guests, will be grateful. Plus, you can take advantage of the empty hot tub to make sure the rest of your tub is in top condition.
4. Switch out filters
Filters are a key aspect of hot tub upkeep. Regularly cleaning and replacing filters allows your water to last longer and keeps your hot tub as clean and sanitized as possible.
5. Purchase additional cleaning tools
If you want to go the extra mile, consider purchasing a water vacuum or skimmer net that can help you take care of any debris that gets into your tub.
