When purchasing a hot tub or spa, one of the items that you’ll want to contemplate investing in is a set ofspa steps. Although it may seem like a straightforward purchase, there are several things to think about before heading to the cash register.
Anti-slip tread is one of the first features that you’ll want to look for when choosing a set of spa steps. It will help to reduce the chances that you and your fellow spa users will slip while entering and exiting the spa. We’d recommend choosing spa steps with a built-in anti-slip tread design because they are long-lasting and easy to care for.
It is also a good idea to ensure that your spa steps have been treated with a product that protects them from UV rays. That’s because UV rays are known to degrade products that have not been properly treated. Examples of damage that may occur to untreated spa steps include the formation of chalky residue, discoloration and cracks.
Weight Bearing Capacity
The spa steps’ weight bearing capacity is something else to keep in mind. After all, not all spa steps are created equal. Some spa steps, like the SureStep II, are capable of withstanding 400 pounds of pressure. Others, like the Spa Side Step, have a weight capacity of 800 pounds. Understandably, the one you’ll need will depend on your family’s unique situation.
Style & Design
Lastly, you’ll want to make sure that the spa steps you are considering for your home work with your spa’s design. Ideally, the steps should fit securely against the spa’s exterior sidewalls and the spa’s platform. Otherwise, the steps may slip when in use. For aesthetic purposes, you might also want to select one that matches or compliments the spa’s coloring. Colors that may suit your needs are espresso, light redwood, weathered gray, mahogany and blonde.
