Should you get a hot tub umbrella? Yes! We’ve got a few reasons why we think it’s the best idea.

As you relax in your hot tub, you will want to make sure that you are protected from the elements. Might seem silly to you but some people don’t like to use their hot tub in the rain and that’s a perfect place for the hot tub umbrella to come into play. You can sit and enjoy being in 104-degree water while not having to have the cold rain fall on you. But, it’s okay if you like to sit in the rain and you enjoy that cold mixed with warm feeling – our umbrella will also keep that bright hot mid-day sun off you when you decide you want to go for a daytime dip. No more worrying about sunburn while sitting in the hot tub!

Hot Tub Umbrella for rain and sun exposure

Protect your skin

When you’re in your hot tub, you may not want to be exposed to the sun’s harmful rays. An umbrella can protect your skin from these rays, keeping you safe and sunburn free.

Plus, it can also protect your hot tub from the sun. Just like our skin, prolonged exposure to UV rays can damage your hot tub. You can prolong the looks of your hot tub with an umbrella to keep it shaded. This will help to keep your hot tub looking new for longer. 

Cost effectiveness

It is much more cost effective to invest in a good umbrella instead of building a special outdoor space with a covering or awning for your hot tub. The materials and labor that go into building such a structure can cost as much as your hot tub. A simple umbrella can give you all the benefits of such a space, at a fraction of the cost.


When you’re soaking in your hot tub, the last thing you want is to be uncomfortable from the sun. A hot tub umbrella can provide shade to keep the sun out of your eyes. So, you can leave the sunglasses in your car!

Keep the elements out

If you have a hot tub umbrella, you don’t have to worry about precipitation ruining your soak. An umbrella can keep the snow and rain off of you while you’re hot tubbing.

You, your friends, and your family can be comfortable in any weather with a well-made hot tub umbrella. No more rain pelting you in the face and distracting you while you’re trying to have a conversation. Just relaxation for everyone, whenever you want, no matter the weather. 

Not to mention, it’ll help with keeping your hot tub water chemically balanced, since snow and rainwater can throw off chemical levels.
