How to know a hot tub booster seat is of good quality?

According to our research, we can highlight the following criteria for a precious spa booster seat:

Does not rise above the water

You buy a booster seat to solve problems, not create new ones. The booster seat will always rise above the water if it isn’t heavy enough. Imagine standing up at the spa to grab a drink, and your booster seat immediately ran away from you. Uncomfortable. It primarily applies to inflatable booster seats: they usually do not stay underwater, even if they have suction cups.

The optimal weight for a booster seat is 4 to 9 pounds. The Blue Wave, for example, weighs 9 pounds, so it sits firmly on the bottom and won’t move. While the Star Splash weighs 4 pounds (the lightest on our list) but non-slip rubberized micro base keeps it, and the seat won’t slip out from under you.

Well-made 

A seat can be comfortable and look good, but what’s the point if it breaks in a week? Unless it’s so great that you’re willing to buy a new one very often. We advise you to invest once in an excellent hot tub booster seat and solve this problem for many years. 

The seat material must be of high quality and pleasant to the body. The best material that can provide it is polyester. The fabric will wick away moisture rather than soak it up, and polyester’s ability to resist moisture helps it remain stain-resistant. In addition, polyester is between cotton and cashmere, so it feels silky against your skin.

Make sure no metal parts on the seat could damage the spa’s surface. All complex elements must be insulated so as not to damage the expensive spa coating.

Dries easily and quickly

The hot tub booster seat should be removed and dried after each bath (we will discuss this later). Drying the seat should be easy. That is, water should drain quickly. It would be good if a hook were to hang it anywhere, like in the Casa Bliss seat.

If your pillow doesn’t dry completely, it can harbor harmful bacteria that will cause skin irritation. According to our research, the best drying seat is Star Splash, which is also the winner in this category.

Fits comfortably to the body shape

The perfect booster seat supports your body and provides comfort. It is pleasant to the skin, does not sting, and keeps its shape. You don’t have to make any effort to sit on it. The booster seat should be so comfortable that you even forget you have it and just enjoy relaxing in the hot tub. Polyester pillows are well-kept and fit under your body as they are very soft. All the winners of our categories (except the best seat for the inflatable spa) are made of this material.

Does not slip

The ideal booster seat lowers to the bottom and stays in place. Even when the jets work at maximum — it does not slip. This criterion has two sides: first, the booster seat must not slide off the hot tub seat. Second, you shouldn’t slide off the booster seat. It is possible when the pillow is made of quality materials and is heavy enough, as we described above.

The best hot tub booster seats: Detailed review

Blue Wave Deluxe Spa Seat Cushion

Blue Wave Deluxe Spa Seat Cushion

The most durable hot tub booster seat

Pros

  • The strongest of all the polyester seats on our list, made with the addition of PVC
  • Immediately ready for use. No need to wait until it fills with water
  • Does not rise above the water because it weighs 9 pounds (the heaviest of all polyester seats)
  • With proper care will serve for many years 

Cons

  • Does not have a drying hook, but you can just put it outside, and it will dry well
MaterialPVC and polyester
Size14 x 14 x 5
ColorCream with black trim
Weight9 pounds
Boost5″

Reviews show that this seat is highly durable. In addition, it is the only one on our list made with PVC, which significantly increases its stability. All others, except Intex, are made of polyester. Finally, some users in the reviews note that they have been using the seat for four years and still perform its functions.

It is ‎9 pounds — the heaviest among all polyester models, and immediately sinks to the bottom, being additionally filled with water. Its weight keeps it from going up but also makes drying difficult. We recommend partially removing it from the water and putting it on the tub’s edge to let the water drain. The reviews claim that this seat dries entirely in the sun in a day, which is quite long compared to the Star Splash seat (which dries in about 4 hours), but still good. Since it is made of polyester with PVC, it is not afraid of direct sunlight: will not lose its color, and will not deteriorate over time (as it happens with natural fabrics).

The outer coating is not as soft as a Casa Bliss seat because it has a rubber layer, but it is still extremely comfortable and pleasant to the body. Its texture resembles to a bean bag, but the inner filling does not fall out and stays well inside. The 5″ thick provides a perfect boost for people who need to get a little higher above the water. 

Be sure to rinse it with water before first use! Some reviews note that it has factory dust on it, so don’t let that dust end up in your hot tub.

Kenley Hot Tub Booster Seat

Kenley Hot Tub Booster Seat

Best for children and teenagers

Pros

  •  The only pillow that has a bright pattern
  • Lightweight even when filled with water, so children can move it
  • Easy to dry
  • The cover is easy to remove and wash in the washing machine
  • The cheapest of all seats

Cons

  • Can slip out from under you
MaterialPolyester
Size15 x 12 x 5
ColorBlue and white
Weight4.18 pounds
Boost4″

Unlike the Blue Wave seat, which weighed 9 pounds, this one weighs 4.18. It is much smaller, and is more comfortable for children because they can independently move it underwater from one hot tub seat to another (it will be more difficult for a child to move the Blue Wave seat, especially when it is filled with water). Also, they can take it out by themselves when the vacation is over and hang it to dry because even when it is filled with water, it is still light.

This fact and bright color make it the best choice for children. In addition, it can be used not only in the water but also in everyday life if you need to soften your spot. 

It has a handle that makes it easy to transport and hang to dry. Reviews claim that it holds up quite well underwater. It is because the practical inner compartment is weighted with 2lb of marble beads. 

Star Splash seat is a little lighter (4.9), but with its blue color, it looks exactly like a hot tub accessory, while the Kenley seat has an attractive pattern. The cover is easy to remove and wash in the washing machine, making it resistant to dirt.

To top it all off, this spa booster seat has the lowest price among all five winners. 

Casa Bliss Weighted Hot Tub Booster Seat for Adults

Pros

  •  The most pleasant to the body because it is made of high-quality polyester
  • Chic look
  • Comes complete with practical accessories (gift bag, laundry net, hook, and loofah)
  • Dries quickly

Cons

  • One review claims that the clasp broke (it can be easily avoided by rinsing the seat with water and allowing it to dry completely so that the hot tub chemicals do not remain on the clasp)
MaterialPolyester
Size17 x 13
ColorRed, Blue, Gray
Weight4.49 pounds
Boost4″

Compared to other products, this model includes four accessories that make using this booster seat even more enjoyable: a gift bag, laundry net, hook, and loofah. Also, all other models have only one color (for example, the Star Splash seat is only blue), while Casa Bliss offers us three colors: Red, Blue, and Gray. That’s why we named this product the best gift — it looks luxurious, will be helpful for hot tub lovers, and has several color options.

Like the model from Kenley, this seat can be used not only in water but also for rest on land, for example, on a picnic. You can take it with you to the park, sit on the grass, wash the cover and use the cushion in the hot tub. 

It also included a metal hook for quick drying. Like all other lightweight polyester seats in our research (except Blue Wave) this seat dries quite quickly: in about a few hours in the open air.

Intex PureSpa Removable Contoured Seat

Pros

  • The most robust plastic seat
  • Have two options for height, 3″ or 5″, so suitable for many users
  • The most reliable design
  • Made of plastic, therefore more hygienic than soft seats

Cons

  • Legs do not have fasteners
MaterialPlastic
Size18.5 x 14 x 8.6
ColorBeige
Weight9.4 pounds
Boost3″ or 5″

If you have an inflatable hot tub, it may feel like you are sitting on the floor. This seat was created for such cases. It has two options for height: 3″ when the legs are folded and 5″ when the legs are straight. So you can choose the size you need (if you want to be more immersed in the water or less). 

It has the largest dimensions among all five seats. Compared to the Blue Wave, which weighs 9 pounds, this seat weighs 9.4 pounds, but doesn’t fill with water. Four legs and the seat are made of plastic and additionally have a laminated finish that adds protection against damage.

All reviews note that it is extremely strong and holds securely even when the jets are working at maximum. The disadvantage is that the legs fold and unfold, and there are no fasteners. Some reviews have claimed that the legs can fold up if you don’t hold the seat. However, as soon as you sit down — it will be fixed and will not fold.
This branded product is best suited for Intex inflatable hot tubs. You can also buy other valuable accessories from this series, such as a cup holder.

We have an article about 4 Best Intex PureSpa Inflatable Hot Tubs in which we compared four popular spa models and identified their disadvantages and advantages. Read it if you want to learn more about the manufacturer of the best booster seat for inflatable hot tubs.

Star Splash Hot Tub Booster Seat

Pros

  • The lightest of all the seats
  • Water drains quickly, so it dries quickly
  • Does not float on water thanks to the non-slip rubberized micro bottom
  • Strong seams

Cons

  • May be too high when filled with water
MaterialPolyester
Size15 x 12 x 5
ColorBright blue
Weight4.09 pounds
Boost5″

This seat is made of the same material and has the exact dimensions as the Kenley, but we chose it as the winner in the category “The best quick-drying seat”. According to reviews, this seat dries the fastest, compared to all the others on our list. This is not because it is the smallest (as it provides more boost than the Casa Bliss). Instead, it is because of the manufacturing technology that the water drains very quickly and does not linger inside the cushion.

Because of the non-slip rubberized bottom, it will not slip out from under you and will provide comfort during bathing. In addition, it lets water through itself, so it sinks into the hot tub quickly, and you don’t have to wait for it to fill up enough.
Star Splash is also the brightest seat of all that we examined. It is made of polyester,  resistant to sunlight and prolonged exposure to water with chemicals. Therefore, you can not worry that your pillow will lose its color or shape over time. Even after many uses, it will still be bright and durable.

It’s easy to get confused when choosing chemicals for your hot tub. Therefore, we have prepared an article to present the Saver’s, Savorer’s, and All-in-one start-up kits to help you pick the right one for your needs.

Who needs a spa booster seat?

The main reason for buying a booster seat is that you are uncomfortable in the spa. This is generally speaking. If we look more specifically, there may be several reasons for this.

Example:

📎 The jets in your hot tub are too high and aren’t hitting the muscles you want. Then you need to buy a booster seat that will raise your body.

📎 The same can happen if you are immersed in water and the hot water presses on your chest. You feel good at first, but it can cause discomfort over time because the pressure makes breathing difficult.

📎 If you don’t want to wet your hair or ruin your makeup, especially when you are relaxing with a large group of friends and want to look perfect.

📎 If you have children or friends below the average height. Seats in the spa are arranged differently, but usually, they are too low for short people. A booster seat is necessary, so everyone can rest in equal and comfortable conditions.

📎 If the surface of your spa is not comfortable enough. Maybe it’s too slippery, and you keep slipping, or it’s unpleasant to the touch, so you don’t like it.

📎 If you have injuries, then the surface of the spa may be too hard for you. A booster seat will soften your body’s impact and provide water support.

📎 If you have an inflatable spa can feel like you are sitting directly on the floor. Try the particular seat, and you will never want to return to the last option!

You must follow the instructions if you want the seat to serve you for a long time.

Before rest:

When you first get the seat, look it over carefully. Are there any existing damages? Are all the seams strong? It is essential that the inner filling does not spill out of the pillow (such as marble beads or other weights)

Be sure to wash the seat with water before first use! Even if it is new, it has dust on it. So clean it thoroughly with water to prevent dirt from entering the hot tub water.

After rest:

We (and all manufacturers) recommend removing the seat after each stay in the water and drying it thoroughly. It is important that the pillow is completely dry and does not harbor harmful bacteria that can enter the hot tub. So, remove the seat and let the water drain a little. If your seat has a drying hook, use it. If not, lay it on a clean surface and let it dry completely.

If you can remove the cover from your seat and wash it, do it occasionally. So you will be 100% sure of the hygiene. If there is no cover, just rinse it with water and let it dry.

Summary

So, if you want to make your spa vacation even more comfortable, You should pay attention to booster seats for hot tubs.
