It is true that inflatable hot tubs are less durable compared to a built-in hot tub. But it’s very difficult to effort built in hot tub as they are very very costly. Many inflatable hot tub reviews highlighted this product is cost efficient, Affordable, Easy to portable and durable. Inflatable spa tubs last more if you follow the maintenance guide and precautions while using it.
Although a inflatable spa is a lot lighter than a standard one when full it is still a considerable weight when full; ranging from 1500 lbs for some 4-seater options to 4000 lbs for larger models and then you need to add the weight of the people so if you are considering placing your hot tub on decking it is essential to make sure it is strong enough to take the weight.
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.
Just in case you have a vision in your head of blowing this thing up like a beach ball then let me clear that up for you, the control pump supplied with this hot tub to run it is also used to inflate it. You need to find a space where you want place your hot tub, it needs to be flat with access to an electricity outlet. They have made sure with this tub to have the outlets marked up so it is easy to couple it with the pump. Firstly though you need to inflate it by connecting the inflation adapter and hose to the tub and the pump and press the bubble button to blow air into it. You will know you have sufficient air in it when it is firm to the touch.
Size: When you see models claiming is ideal for this or that number of people, first you have to bear in mind the size of your people. A 4 person profile may be claimed considering slim, average stature people, so if you have only 2 adults and kids, the tub will make room for more than 4 for sure. This scenario will interchange always depending of criteria of comfort for each person too.
Since it makes use outside air, the temperature may affect that of the water. The colder it is outside, the more noticeable the decrease in the water’s temperature. In worse cases, it is not a sudden drop but more of a gradual process as the bubble jets continue to run. We have yet to see an inflatable spa with heated bubble jets. Once that becomes available, you’ll definitely find it here first.
The salt cell used for saltwater hot tubs is a titanium coated electrolytic cell, which will eventually lose enough of its coating to stop producing enough chlorine. Spa salt cells usually last 2-5 years, depending on the model. At that point, you can replace just the cell (not the power supply). Keeping your cell clean (some models are self-cleaning), and not using it for cold spa water (below 60° F), are key to a long cell life.
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.
