When it comes to enjoying your hot tub experience, many factors come into play. Not only do you need the right hot tub; but it’s all in the accessorizing where the fun starts.
Your hot tub can transform into an after dark retreat with the perfect lighting. Lighting systems can be customized with dazzling color-changing lights with underwater effects.

You can now relax in the spa and get lost in a good book. The AquaReader is a floating book/tablet stand that’s the perfect accessory for pools, hot tubs, and baths. The AquaReader accommodates tablet PC’s, eReaders, magazines, and books up to 2.5lbs.
To complement the poolscape, the spa should be the same level or raised with the water spilling over into the pool. Any kind of water feature, whether spilling into the pool or tickling into the hot tub, gives soothing effects that will make you feel like you’re far away from home.

A big hat during the summer is essential. Wear this to protect your skin from the sunrays or during light rain or windy days.

Automatic Pool Cover
Don’t go through the hassle of closing up the hot tub. Automatic cover systems can creatively cover your spa.

Outdoor Entertainment Systems
Set the tone right with outdoor entertainment systems. Music sound systems can be installed to appear as small landscape lights with the subwoofer buried in the ground. Specialty televisions are designed specifically for outdoor use with non-glare screens and outdoor speakers that will provide you with the best sound quality.
This hot tub has built-in seating and storage around it, along with a cedar topped PVC pergola.
