Essential Hot Tub Accessories

Storage Steps

Forget about draping your towels over the nearest chair when you head out to your spa area.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do you use a spa towel warmer?

The typical spa towel warmer is set up at a location that’s close to the hot tub and is connected to an electrical outlet. The rods of the towel warmer heat up and bring the towel up to the perfect temperature to be a comforting hug when you get out of the tub.

 

How can I heat my hot tub faster?

Waiting for a hot tub to heat up can be torture, especially if you’ve had a long day and you just want to get into the water. There are a few ways that you can help the water heat up faster. One of the most important things you can do is to leave the cover on while the water comes up to temperature. If the hot tub water is exposed to air, then you’re going to lose a significant amount of heat into the surrounding air. This is particularly true if the ambient temperature is significantly colder than the hot tub.

One thing to keep in mind if you are in an area that gets snow during the winter. Make sure that the hot tub cover is completely cleared off before you turn on the hot tub. If you don’t, then you’ll end up losing some heat to the snow. The snow will melt and the cold water can get into the hot tub.

Another way to bring up the water temperature faster is to turn on the jets. When you do that, you are circulating the warm water around the tub, which helps to encourage the cold water to follow suit.

 

How long will a hot tub stay warm without power?

It depends. Your hot tub will lose its warmth slowly following a power outage if the ambient temperatures are warm, but it can quickly get cold if you’re in a cooler area. Keeping the cover on will help retain the warmth and slow down this process, but within a few hours you’ll end up with water that is a similar temperature to the surrounding temps.
