It has heavy-duty construction and a good selection of accessories at a very reasonable price. The Fiber-Tech construction combines reinforced laminated PVC with a layer of fibrous material. The tub measures 77 inches across and 28 inches deep; it holds 210 gallons of water and can support four adults at a time. The thermal ground cloth this inflatable spa comes with protects the bottom of the tub while adding a layer of insulation. The fitted cover has child-protected safety locks and a foil lining to help retain heat. It has a combination pump and heater that circulates water first through a built-in water softener then a water filter. This is an uncommon feature for an inflatable hot tub. Using the digital controls on the heater, you can set the temperature to anywhere between 68 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit. You also activate the 120 jets using the digital readout. The jets are powered by the same air pump you use to inflate the tub. An included air pressure gauge helps you inflate the tub to just the right level, and a specialized wrench is included to tighten the valve when needed. The tub comes with a carry bag for easy storage and portability. Other accessories include a package of three-way test strips (which test pH levels, alkalinity and free chlorine levels), a floating chlorine dispenser and two filter cartridges. Intex backs the PureSpa with a 12-month warranty, which includes both the tub and the combined pump and heater unit.
Additionally, the effects of hard water don’t stop there. Your skin and clothes also get their own share too. Fortunately, this model solves the problem by having a built-in hard water treatment system. It softens up the water, which you’ll immediately notice after soaking. Your skin wouldn’t feel as much dry and there wouldn’t be any itchy feeling too.
Size, electrical compatibility and extra features are some of the details that must be further analyzed and compared when you are choosing the best inflatable hot tub to suit your needs. While two models may be quite pair to one each other in excellence, the specific scenario where you will have to install the tub can pose the water shed decision maker.
Since this inflatable tub is smaller, but from the same powerhouse brand, that is Bestway Lay-Z-Spa, you know that you’re getting an incredible value with this product. It is going to have the same patented, 3-ply reinforced TriTech, that guarantees top of the line durability. The Miami is Bestway’s world’s first premium inflatable spa, and it still remains a top choice in the industry.
The soft but non flimsiness of inflatable hot tubs may be a hit or miss depending on the consumer. But a lot of people who have sat in $6000+ hot tubs have actually preferred the softer feel of inflatable tubs to the concrete, plastic and other mashups of portable hot tubs. Inflatable hot tubs are soft but firm, and really provide a relaxing feel compared to portable hot tubs. This is of course based on individual tastes, so take that with a grain of salt. Inflatable hot tubs also inflate and deflate pretty quickly, so that is less time waiting around for it to reach max capacity so you can start filling it with water. But portable hot tubs don’t have this waiting period at all, and if you’re the type that is in a rush that extra time it takes to inflate can really make a difference.
It can fit a maximum of 6 people at once, which is more than enough room for small gatherings between friends. It can heat up to a maximum of 104 degrees Fahrenheit, and there is an automatic start and stop timer which ensures the spa session won’t exceed the duration you desire and select. Its 242-gallon capacity shows just how spacious this tub is, while the 77-inch by 28-inch size makes it easy for you to find a place for it in the backyard or garden.
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.
So having a portable hot tub can come in handy for a few reasons. If you ever want to move it to a new location, whether that be to a different spot in your backyard or if you want to move it inside. Yep, I said inside! We never thought of that either until our research. This works great if you live in a part of the country that gets the kind of weather that makes you not want to venture outside to use your hot tub.
Usually costing around $4,000 to $9,000 depending on type and size and location to be installed. But going the inflatable spa way will run you around $500, with no setup costs. And if you will only be using it part of the year, you simply deflate it and store it away. There are no costs of maintaining it to keep it from looking like something that the creature from the black lagoon would like to hide out in. Oh, and did we mention, to heat it up and keep it heated will run around $8-$12 a month depending on your electricity prices per kWh.
