Choosing the Right Swim Spa Accessories
If you own a swim spa, or are considering a swim spa purchase, at some point in your journey you will find yourself asking which swim spa accessories will help you maximize your usage. While the answer to that question will be slightly different for each family or individual, maximizing your experience is easy with a range of swim spa accessories designed to complement your swim spa.
From practical additions to luxurious enhancements, here’s a guide to some swim spa accessories that can elevate your hydrotherapy experience.
Swim Spa Covers
The right cover will save energy costs, assist in keeping your spa water clean, and lower the rate at which your spa water evaporates. A hot tub cover can also protect from extreme weather and winds. Not to mention that a cover is crucial for the safety of others.
There are many options of swim spa covers, such as vinyl, automatic, and roll covers. The most common cover is vinyl. They are usually filled with foam for insulation and can come in various thicknesses and colors. Automatic covers are operated electronically, covering, and uncovering the spa with the push of a button. They provide safety and insulation, like the vinyl covers. However, they do tend to be a bit more expensive due to the automation feature. Another popular option is a roll cover. They are typically less expensive and are great if you are looking for something quick and easy to manage, especially during the summer. During the winter months, we recommend switching back to an insulated cover such as a vinyl.
Since swim spa covers are large, a cover lift can make uncovering your swim spa a breeze. You simply push the spa cover open with a levered handle. Cover lifters can make it easy for anyone to use and enjoy.
A cover lifter is an optional Bullfrog Spas Swim Series accessory. Not only is it supposed to make opening your spa easier, but it also adds an extra layer of privacy on the ends of the spa to make swimming and playing more relaxing.
Water Care Options
Investing in a reliable and effective water care system for your swim spa can be a decision that contributes significantly to the overall enjoyment and longevity of your spa experience. A well-maintained water care system ensures that the water remains balanced, free from contaminants, and safe for regular use. Water care upgrades can be beneficial as maintenance can be time consuming and tedious sometimes.
For this reason, Bullfrog Spas has decided to make our ultra-premium water care system, Clear Comfort, come standard with all Swim Series spas. This system is designed to make maintenance easier, the water healthier, and your experience more enjoyable.
Swim Spa Steps
Unless you’re installing your spa below ground, it’s going to be necessary to provide some way for you and others to get in and out of your spa. Swim spa steps provide a stable and secure entry and exit point, making it easier for users of all ages to get and out comfortably. They serve as a preventative measure against slips and falls, promoting a safer environment around the swim spa.
Choosing swim spa steps that seamlessly complement the design and aesthetics of your swim spa can elevate the overall look and feel of your backyard oasis. It can create a cohesive and visually appealing outdoor space. This attention to detail not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also contributes to a harmonious and well-designed backyard environment.

Fitness Kits and Swim Tethers
Fitness kits are essential swim spa exercise accessories for individuals looking to optimize their aquatic routines. These comprehensive kits typically include resistance bands and other specialized equipment designed to enhance the effectiveness of swim spa workouts. By incorporating these fitness tools, users can customize their exercise regimens to target specific muscle groups, improve cardiovascular fitness, and achieve overall body conditioning.

Additionally, swim spa fitness kits offer a versatile and convenient solution for achieving a full-body workout in the comfort of one’s own backyard, promoting a healthy and active lifestyle without the need for a traditional swimming pool or a gym membership.

Non-Slip Aquatic Surface Package
Adding a non-slip aquatic surface package into your swim spa can significantly enhance safety. Traction control systems use advanced technology to minimize the risk of slips and falls by providing a secure grip on the spa’s surfaces. It ensures that users can maintain stability during exercises or leisurely activities. This feature is particularly valuable for individuals engaging in aquatic workouts, as it reduces the likelihood of injuries and enhances the effectiveness of exercises.
