6 Things To Prepare Before Your Hot Tub is Delivered


Like all the finest things in the world, the best hot tubs are never made in a single day. Most likely, you may find yourself having to wait a little while before it’s delivered and installed.

Waiting that long can be such a bore, especially when you’ve been so excited to have hot water jetting over the tips of your skin.

There’s no need to feel that bored, though. If you’re waiting until your hot tub gets delivered and installed in your house, then you should know that this is the best time to get yourself some special accessories to go along with it.

A Compact Mini Fridge

Without a doubt, hot tubs are a great addition to backyard parties and back-of-the-house dinner dates. After spending some quality time with your date, just slide into the hot, soothing hot tub.

But if you’re wondering how you can elevate your experience, then a mini-fridge can definitely help. Keep it nearby, then if you get thirsty or a little bit hungry, reach for a refreshing bowl of fresh fruit and a cold drink. Or, if you’re feeling like treating yourself, a gallon of rocky road ice cream!

A Tray Table

Now, mini-fridges are nice. But if you really want to relax, you wouldn’t be holding your food over your hot tub the whole time.

Who wants to worry about fatigued arms or messy spills? A waterproof tray table can make all the difference, and not only can it hold your drink, but it can also hold your mobile device for easy TV watching, too.

Plants and Flowers

The perfect relaxation routine should allow you to close your mind and body to the stressful world outside.

Vibrant plants and fresh flowers can help you calm down by their sheer beauty and blissful smell. You can even bring out more of the relaxing aromatic scents by dipping their pretty petals into your hot tub.

Landscaping Materials

With good gardening skills, some visual taste, and a bit of building know-how, you can make a lovely outdoor gazebo with the proper landscaping materials.

This can give you some shade if you want a hot tub bath in the coldness of winter (similar to a mountain resort’s outdoor swim spa but without the snow dripping over your face!).

Hot Tub Covers

Of course, not every home can have an outdoor hot tub under the shade of a tree or gazebo. In this case, you may want to buy a hot tub cover that’s just the right fit for the one you ordered.

All the different models of the Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs do come in different sizes, so you may want to find one that has the perfect size for yours.

Comfortable Patio Furniture

If you’re planning on spending some time outdoors, then you definitely want to invest in some comfortable patio furniture for your backyard escape.

Stainless steel is great against the elements, but hardy wicker is fantastic for those scorching summer days here in British Columbia. Just make sure the upholstery is waterproof, so it survives the elements!
