If you are searching for a hot tub but your backyard space is limited or live in a rented house, then an inflatable model may be worth considering. Inflatable hot tubs can be installed just anywhere and are extremely portable. However, they need to be drained and refilled when they are set up in their locations. But do not expect too much from an inflatable model. They cannot be as durable and don’t have various features as above ground hot tubs. They are simply an inexpensive substitute, and not full blown spas. Still not sure which one to buy? check out our list of best inflatable hot tub below.
Coleman Lay-Z Spa Inflatable Hot Tub
This has to be the most affordable inflatable hot tub in the market, but that does not make it low in quality. Actually, most users of the Coleman Lay-Z Spa Inflatable Hot Tub highly rate it. It’s easy to install and one can use an air blower to inflate the Lazy-Z-Spa. This inflatable hot tub comes with calming bubble jets that will let you simply soak all your days’ stresses away.
The exterior walls of the pool are constructed with a fabric coated material, while the pool cover is coated with an aluminum foil thereby, keeping your water warm for longer periods of time. You will be able to enjoy your hot tub as it comes with excellent features such as the rapid heating system, water filtration, and Lazy Z massage system. The pool liner is mosaic with a cushioned floor and has a drain valve that’s convenient. It can hold a maximum of 6 people. If the air temperature is below 40 degrees, it’s not advisable to use it.
Intex 77in PureSpa Portable Bubble Massage Spa Set
This has to be the most distinct Intex inflatable hot tub that is made to accommodate 4 people. The following features come with this product:
• 2 replaceable filter cartridges
• Insulated lock and cover to reduce loss of heat
• Water treatment system for hard water making it gentle on the skin
• Constructed with fiber tech
• The control panel is simple to use.
The hot tub has additional features like the floating pool chlorine dispenser, carry bag, a thermal ground, among so many other extras. You will absolutely have fun when using these features. It’s easy to install and you will not have to look for extra tools when setting it up. When not in use, it can easily dismantle and later use as its compact. The inflatable hot tub also comes with a cover that will help in keeping your water clean by preventing any debris from getting into the hot tub.
This hot tub is portable so you can enjoy your hot tub moments from just anywhere. However, when using the inflatable hot tub, you will have to wait for several hours for it to heat up. Sometimes, it may take up to 12 hours. This means that if you need to use the tub in the evening, you may have to start heating it up in the morning. As far as durability goes, this is not as durable when compared to other solid hot tubs.
M Spa Model B-90 Apline Hot Tub
The M Spa Model B-90 Apline Hot Tub is affordable and comes with excellent features. Installing this inflatable spa is simple as it can easily be set up on different surfaces. Setting it up for use is easy and straight forward; anyone can do it. However, most users complain of poor construction.
The shell material vinyl easily gets damaged more so if there are improper chemical balances in your hot tub for longer periods of time. When you deflate it, you can move it from place to place, fill it up with water, and plug it in and enjoy a soak in the water. But the water may get heated so slowly for several hours (sometimes days) and then again lose the heat when being used.
This is because it uses air jets rather than hot water jets and the airflow is what makes the water cool. Some users will also complain that the air blowers are noisy while other people have no problem with that. This hot tub is the true definition of portable. One can even carry it with them for vacation, but you may also want to consider all the hassles involved in filling and emptying it before you pack it for vacation.
It doesn’t look so elegant and most people will agree with me that it looks much like a pool for kids. However, looks may not be what you are looking for. If you simply want something that is convenient and affordable, then you should get the M Spa Model B-90 Apline Hot Tub.
• Does not require a lot of storage space
• Looks cheap
• Water tends to lose temperature fast
