You might be tempted to think that inflatable tubs are fragile, being easily prone to destruction. But this is not the case, high-end models having a quality construction that ensures they will last for a long time, and that they won’t be punctured easily and get deflated. Best of all, the quality materials used in the fabrication process provide comfort as well. After all, durability is not everything, being very important for them to offer a pleasant, relaxing experience when using them too. Most of the tubs on the market are made of polyester laminated PVC, a material that offers everything you need in terms of durability and comfort.
When referenced in films, TV, or social media, or pop culture, it's more often a hot tub we hear about than the more sophisticated sounding spa. If athletes are captured on social media cavorting after hours, it's in a hot tub, not a spa. Remember the old sketches on Saturday Night Live with Will Ferrell and Rachel Dratch as the "hot tub luh-vahs"? They often hung out at the Welshley Arms Motel's hot tub, where they would harass other guests with their psuedo-intellectual conversations and disgusting meat snacks. And the film Hot Tub Time Machine would never have had the same appeal as Spa Time Machine. Deep stuff to ponder next time you soak in your hot tub. Or spa.
The benefits from owning a hot tub are infinite. A hot tub can be used to relieve pain; unwind from a long and stressful day; to spend time with family and friends; and much more. Stationary spa owners are tied to one location and cannot fully enjoy their hot tub. With a Softub spa, however, you are bound by nothing. Whether you choose to relocate your portable hot tub in your home, or if you change residencies, it can easily be done worry free.
To finish our guide on inflatable hot tubs, is important to note that all manufacturers do not sell their hot tubs with sitting sets, not to mention the models that do not include covers. Let take a look on some models of extra accessories that can make your experience even more complete inside the hot tub as well as tips to whether you should purchase them or not.
The inflatable spa offers a number of desirable features. An inflation hose makes it easy to inflate your hot tub when you set it up, and a built-in hard water treatment system filters out calcium and other minerals for a more smooth, relaxing soak. The experience is further enhanced by 130 massaging jets which can be activated via the handy, easy-access control panel at the side of the hot tub.
When you get the AirJet Spa, you can easily set it up by yourself without using any tools. You will just have to fill up the tub, connect it to mains, fill it up to whatever level you want with water, turn the heater ON and enjoy. So now that you know how simple it is to set up the tub, you should also know that even the tub is small, the company states that the tub is capable of up to 4 persons but I recommend you to get only 2 persons in because it isn’t a swimming pool after all.
Consumers will also notice that the premium jets are not available in an inflatable hot tub, but are always available in portable hot tubs. Inflatable hot tubs can simulate the jets, but does not provide nearly the same massage quality as the real thing. The last thing to point out is the control panel, which will be a toss-up depending on who you go with. Most makers put the control panel in place so that you don’t have to leave the hot tub to use it. In an inflatable hot tub there are less functions to play with so it inspires the plug and play attitude. So if you’re looking for ease of use, then inflatable hot tubs wins in this department.
If you do like to move it around regularly, which is the strongest advantage for inflatable hot tubs, you have to deal with draining, deflating, moving, inflating, and refilling your tub every time you want to move it. The deflating and inflating isn’t as big of a deal if you have an air compressor to hook up to it, or if your hot tub came with its own, but it still takes a while (and a good deal of water) to refill that hot tub every time, and longer yet to get the water hot.
