This is best for the people who aren’t really all that impressed with the massage jets. That’s not all that strange because many Intex portable spa reviews consider the hot water in itself as the main therapeutic and relaxing feature of the tub. If you don’t care about the massage features, then that’s fine. After all, you can always think of that feature as another thing that can go wrong in the Intex inflatable hot tub.
Keeping the products in order, we will start with the Coleman Inflatable Tub. Most times, when you think of the Coleman brand, it brings to mind the typical camping tools and outdoors gadgets. The exterior is the classic Coleman-brand green. (This is usually their hallmark color for many of their products.) The interior is colored in a pristine, clean white and equipped with a cushioned floor that feels refreshing and soothing to the feet. Several bubble jets line the interior and serve well for water massages and bubble stimulation.
The model of Intex Pure Spa comes with a bubble jet which blows powerful air bubbles into the water. As you enjoy soaking, you can turn this on and get a full body massage. This in itself can help you relieve stress. But what if you have some lower back pains that you need to specifically target? Fortunately, with just a touch of a button, you can run the high-pressure massage jets to target these areas.
Portable hot tubs either need to be dissembled to move or have to be moved as a whole, which can be a really big pain. If it can’t be dissembled, moving it even twice a year can turn into an all-day affair. Moving an inflatable hot tub isn’t an issue, and deflating it and inflating it again in the new location is all part of the quirks. Since it is moved so often, the material is made to be tough to withstand a lot of the bumps and bruises that the portable model would get when being moved from place to place. Rips, tears and any type of damage that would poke a hole is minimized if proper maintenance and handling instructions are followed.
Attach the control unit to the inflated Coleman hot tub using the marked connectors, they should match up no problem and it’s easy to hand tighten them both together. Screw in the filters, make sure the drain plug on the bottom is closed and then you’re ready to fill up with water. There is a mark on the inside of the tub so you know the correct level of water to fill it to. This is a simple outline of what needs doing. There is a dvd included to show you exactly what to do. You can have your tub filled in next to no time.
And since you will be using the same water for a long while, all the best models come with a chemical floater dispenser which will treat the water and block the formation of algae deposits.All inflatable hot tubs come with the pump system to inflate the set, and all that is automated, so all you have to do is connect the tubes and let it inflate by itself. These hot tubs also are designed with an electrical controller to set all adjustments of water temperature, stirring and filtering for the amount of time you wish.
After reviewing several portable hot tubs, we decided the Lay-Z Spa Miami was the one we would purchase. We purchased the 2nd week in February and received within a week of ordering. Setup was simple and straight forward. We maintain the water quality every week by taking a sample to our local pool supply store. I wouldn't recommend this for children as the water temp max is 104 degrees. But for a good 20 minute soak, it does the job. (wife having chronic muscle spasms). If the hot tub lasts us a year, we will definitely purchase another one. Great price for the money spent. And a better deal then the hard shells. The pics and video were taken recently.
