The Process We Used to Evaluate

Here we test every conceivable accessory for hot tubs and spas: from simple chemicals to complex automated systems. We also find the best tools for cleaning, measuring pH and chlorine, testing heaters, and more.

The same goes for electric spas—we look at heaters, circulating pumps and filters, timers, ozone generators (which release a germ-killing form of oxygen), lighting and audio components, filter systems, remotes, cleaners and more.

As a side note: For this guide, I’ve focused on equipment that you might buy in a store or order online; anything that must be installed by a professional is covered in our guide to hot tub installation.

I also consider accessories like pool toys and pool floats that work well in hot tubs or spas.

Intex PureSpa Headrest

Our Thoughts

The Intex PureSpa Headrest is a simple solution for those who want to recline and enjoy the bubbling jets of a hot tub. This inflatable pillow comes with a weighted base and is designed to be placed on top of the spa wall.

However, because it’s inflatable, it can also be partially filled with air to fit your personal preference for firmness. The headrest also has a removable panel that you can use to wipe away excess water from your hair and face.

At 15¾ inches long and wide, it’s big enough for most adults and should fit most hot tubs.

Gorilla Grip Luxury Bath Pillow

It’s one of the most expensive tub accessories we tested, but it’s also one of the most durable, and it comes with a three-year warranty.

18 Pcs Hot Tub Sponge Oil Absorbing Sponge

Our Thoughts

The last thing you want to do after a long day is scrubbing the gunk out of your hot tub. With the 18-piece Cute Scum Sponge Set (made from soft, yet sturdy sponges in cute animal shapes) you’ll never have to worry about that again.

You simply drop these sponges, which are shaped like a pineapple, into your hot tub. The sponges will collect all the scums, slime, grimes, and oils right out of the water, and the small amount of scrubbing needed will be enough to keep your filter running longer with more efficiency.

Once the sponges become fully saturated with oil, you can press out the oil, rinse out the sponge, and use again. In our tests, this model was the easiest way to clean the pool and other areas around the pool as well.

If you want to add a little whimsy to your hot tub decor, these sponges come in an assortment of adorable animal shapes, including a yellow pineapple. You can also place a few of the three-dimensional pineapple shapes in your swimming pool to bring amusement park–like joy to your children, and they can use the sponges as a different decoration at the party pool.

Things to Keep in Mind Before Buying

We researched and tested dozens of accessories over the course of several years. Here’s a list of what we looked for while deciding which accessories to consider:


In most states, it’s illegal to dispose of spa chemicals in the municipal sewage system or septic tank. For that reason, we only considered accessories that are legally allowed (or at least tolerated) in your area.


The accessory had to be easy to move around a backyard or deck. This eliminated those with large bases or otherwise unwieldy designs.

Ease of Use

The accessory should be simple and intuitive to use, with clearly marked controls and easy-to-read displays.

Safety Features

Accessories should have multiple layers of protection against overheating, short circuits, and other safety hazards.
