Our Ultimate Guide to Hot Tub Features and Accessories

The hot tub features and accessories you choose can increase your enjoyment, multiply the health and wellness benefits, increase the safety, and make your hot tub even easier to use. At Texas Hot Tub Company, we want to help you get the most out of your hot tub. As the premier hot tub dealer in the DFW area and beyond, we are experts on the various features and accessories! Let us help you sort through the multitude of options and find the best ones for you. Here is our ultimate guide to hot tub features and accessories.

Seating Options

If you’re new to the hot tub world, you may not realize that not all hot tub seats are the same. Depending on the model, there may be different seating options or even a variety of seat types in a single hot tub. For example, here are a few of the types of seats available in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub.

Lounge Seat

A hot tub lounge seat allows you to recline, evenly distribute body weight, and fully relax with the well-placed massage jets for ultimate comfort. Jacuzzi Lounge Seats also have footrests with massage jets to target foot pain. If you’d like to learn more about lounge seats, check out this article, Should I Get a Hot Tub with a Lounge Seat?

Therapy Seat

A therapy seat is designed to target key trouble areas with powerful massage jets. The Jacuzzi PowerPro™ Therapy Seats, for example, have three types of jets to target tension and cause muscles to relax in the neck and back.

Cool Down Seat

A cool down seat is one of the most useful hot tub features. It is a seat that is usually a little higher up than a regular hot tub seat and keeps your body slightly above the water line. Sitting in the cool down seat allows you to stay in the hot tub a little longer without overheating. It also helps you cool down some to avoid an especially abrupt temperature difference when exiting. Additionally, it is a great option for children to use as well.


Another hot tub feature that makes a huge impact on your enjoyment is the jets. You can vary the hot tub jet types you choose based on your personal preference, your trouble areas, and how you intend to use your hot tub. For example, Hot Spring Spas has a wide variety of powerful and effective jets that can target your neck, back, wrists, legs, or feet.

Other Amazing Hot Tub Features

When customizing a hot tub, don’t overlook the hot tub cleaning and filtration systems! These hot tub features will keep your spa water clean and clear, and make any regular maintenance a breeze. At Texas Hot Tub Company, we have many great options for hot tub water care so you can spend less time dealing with hot tub maintenance and more time doing the things you love.

Hot Tub Accessories 

Foldaway Step and Towel Holder

Strong Spas® has this unique and oh-so-useful hot tub feature! The foldaway step allows you to get in and out of your hot tub with ease but then conveniently tucks away into the spa’s cabinet and out of the way. Similarly, Strong Spas have a foldaway towel compartment to store towels between use and keep them dry.

Cover Lifter

Without a cover lifter, removing your hot tub cover can be cumbersome, require two people, and, if not done properly, can cause damage to your cover. Don’t let the hassle of removing your cover keep you from enjoying your hot tub! A cover lifter removes the burden and allows a single person to remove the cover with ease. A cover lifter also stows your cover away safely when your hot tub is in use.

Outdoor Entertainment Center

Relaxing in your hot tub doesn’t have to be done in silence. In fact, soft instrumental music can enhance your relaxation. Installing an outdoor entertainment center makes this possible. It also allows you to listen to sports games, your favorite hits, or even watch a movie from your hot tub, with the help of a blow-up screen or TV. 

Handrail and Spa Steps

Without a doubt, safety is paramount to hot tub use. These hot tub accessories allow you to stay safe when getting in and out of your spa. You will find this useful both when getting into your spa with stiff, achy joints and muscles, and when exiting fully relaxed. 

Shade Protection

Hot tubs are wonderful for use all year long. But if the summer sun is bearing down on you, it can make your time less enjoyable. Instead, make use of our versatile spa umbrella to shade your space. When not using your hot tub, it can pivot to shade your patio as well.

Ice Bucket

This hot tub accessory is not only useful but fun! Strong Spas have this optional hot tub accessory available so you don’t have to make a drink run for icy cold refreshment part way through your soak. Learn more about Strong Spas’ unique and useful hot tub features and accessories here.

CoolZone System

The CoolZone system can heat or cool your water temperature anywhere from 60 degrees up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Watch here to learn more about the CoolZone System.
