Spa Steps and Hot Tub Handrails

The number one spa accessory has to be a spa cover. But after that, the most important spa and hot tub accessories are spa steps and hand rails. Like a spa cover, steps and handrails are an important safety feature for any spa owner. It's awkward and unsafe to enter or exit a hot tub without assistance from spa steps and handrails. Today's post is a buyer's guide for spa steps and handrails.

Spa and Hot Tub Hand Rails

Spa and hot tub rails are important to help make a safe transition from the spa to the spa step. Hand rails either screw to the supports on your spa cabinet, or are secured by a flat plate that slides under the spa.
