You may have just purchased an inflatable hot tub or you may be thinking of buying one. The next question, other than which model should I buy, that crosses your mind maybe what essential accessories do I need for an inflatable hot tub?.
Let's take a moment and look at what accessories there are and which ones you can consider as essential to buy right away and which ones you can get later.
This one kind of makes sense. This is the sort of thing you would expect someone to suggest buying a hot tub if buying from a shop. If you're buying online then the store website may or may not suggest buying a hot tub cover depending on how good it is.
If you are going to have the hot tub up for some time, you will want to make sure no unwanted foreign bodies enter the water. No flies, no leaves or any plant bits at all.
To stop any of this entering your hot tub then you need to purchase a hot tub cover at the same time. At the latest before you inflate and setup your inflatable hot tub.
Keep it clean. Keep it enjoyable. Purchase a cover as an essential.
When buying your hot tub, it's not the most pleasurable thought to have. However, to keep your hot tub in tip top usable condition you will need to clean if from time to time.
What cleaning chemicals and bits should you get?
When cleaning it's recommended you use a soft soap, something that is not going to be abrasive on the soft material of your inflatable hot tub. One great suggestion to use I have liked in the above list.
Nautical Technology makes a spray cleaner that works well at removing stains and marks while maintaining the pliability of the tub material.
You may also want to use something like a scum bug hot tub sponge which is designed to be used in cleaning hot tubs and the body oils that can enter the water and stick to the sides.
To maintain and keep the water clean in the hot tub you will need the following:
- Water Test Kit
- Chlorine Tablets for Hot Tubs
- pH Adjustment Chemicals
You will also need to clean your filter regularly to maintain a nice clear and clean water in your *inflatable hot tub

Depending on how big your hot tub is, you may want to pick up some hot tub steps to help you get in and out.
It may be that your hot tub is simple enough to get in and out of with ease, but there may be members of your family that are a little smaller and may find it difficult.
Investing in some hot tub steps can make it more enjoyable for everyone.
Just a small addition to the essentials on cleaning. I mentioned in section 2 that you should clean your filter.
For this task, you can pick up filter cleaner brushes. This will just make that task that little bit easier
These are just a few essentials I would advise to pick up for you to keep enjoying your hot tub.
Mostly it's about keeping the water clean. Keeping the water at the right level of pH. Finally, being able to access your hot tub with ease.
Enjoy your hot tub fun.
