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.
Another maintenance task that you should perform quite often, more precisely every time you use the tub or once per week in case you do not use it that often is to sanitize the water. To do this, you must pour a sanitizing solution into the tub, a solution that you buy from specialty stores. When it comes to the amount of solution that you should pour into the tub, you must follow the instructions given on the package of the sanitizer as the amount differs from one tub to another.
Of all the inflatable hot tubs we did a review here, this is the only one that has the ability to run more than 1 function at the same time. This functionality is more than enough to convince some people to decide on buying this model, including us. Being able to run your heater while the bubble jets are running is an awesome experience. With bubble jets and the high-pressure massage jets turned on, everyone soaking can experience the massage they want all at the same time, whether light or targeted.

Before you get into the tub, shower and remove any body lotions, deodorants, perfume, make up and of course, get into the tub with your body properly hygienized and clean. Most of the contaminants of the water are solutions that come from your skin, from natural oil to all these toiletries that must be removed.If the model you are not purchasing doesn’t include a cover, buy one to keep the tub properly closed and avoid the contamination with external debris and insects. Cover the tub everytime after use.


One of the common gripes about these spa’s is the fact that when you use the bubble massage system you can’t use the heater at the same time. The bubbles have a 30 minute auto shut off and in that time the temperature can drop a few degrees. The bubbles going through the water can make it feel a bit cooler too. To be fair this is an issue with most portable hot tubs with bubble jets. It’s easy to switch the heater back on as soon as the bubbles are finished but the temperature only rises a few degrees an hour.
Savings – Here was a big one for us and our budget. An in-ground hot tub or spa can cost from $12,000 to over $20,000 by the time you are done with cranes, excavation, landscapers, masons, plumbers and construction crews, and we are not even talking about the maintenance costs. Acrylic or prefab hot tubs are more cost effective, but you still have the cost of installation. See How To Look After Your Inflatable Hot Tub.
