Keeping your inflatable hot tub at 102°, if your weather is 65° should only use about 4 kWh per day if it is used every day. So a scenario of $0.08 per kWh for 4 hours a day should be under $10 a month. A stationary hard hot tub costs much more to run and maintain which can cost anywhere between $38 to $80 per month depending on use, weather and insulation.
Because a plug and play hot tub is not hard wired into a permanent outside gfci box it makes it easier to take with you if you ever move. Or if your a renter you can have a hot tub and take it with you when you buy a house or rent another one! Generally plug and play spas are smaller and lighter making them much more portable and easy move, but not having to worry about installing another 220v electrical service at your next home makes the move easier as well.
Combination pool and spas come with benefits, sure. Pool-lovers also get a spa; spa lovers get a pool. Installing a spa and pool as part of the same unit can save on upfront construction cost and time, and is easy to unify in a harmonious design. On the surface, it seems like a win-win situation. However, the combination comes with costs to consider.
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.
Ikaria also just happens to be home to one of the first, and certainly one of the most famous hot tub collections in history, as the island was known for its hydrotherapy. Was it the residual heat from Icarus' burnt wings that kept the waters warm? Probably not, but the healing properties of hot water have been used this way around the world for millennia.
Of course, you’re limited to seating arrangement and positions when you choose the smaller hot tub. Because you get a less amount of space, you also get limited seating options and might make it hard for you if you want to recline or let another person join in the hot tub. If you want to lounge more comfortably, then a larger hot tub might be a better choice.
Like most of the portable hot tubs that are available to buy you can’t usually use the heater and the bubbles or the jets at the same time. The bubbles have a 30 minutes run time and the jets have a 60 minute run time and in that time the temperature of the water can drop a few degrees because of the cold air bubbling through the water. There’s less heat loss with the water jets. The heater can be switched back on straight afterwards.
Part of our patio is enclosed so we thought that would be a very cool idea for the winter months. That is something you cannot do with a hard hot tub. So having our hot tub out under the stars in the summer months then, bringing it inside during the harsh weather not only protected and kept it cleaner longer, but we felt a bit like we were staying at a resort.
I used my index lifespan for 4 months without any issues. The only time it stopped working was when I got an error message saying no water flow. I changed the filters out and never had a problem again. It did loose some air one night when the temp got to 37 days one night. I put some air in it the next day and it never lost air again. I love this spa! Its worth every penny. Now let’s see how the 2nd season goes. I’m setting it up May 1at. I will let you know how it does.
It has 2 water treatment systems installed. The hard water treatment system keeps the water soft, which helps prevent the skin and hair from drying up. It also makes sure the unit remains in tip-top shape by preventing any chemical build ups which may damage it. We believe that this is an important feature, considering that this is a premium inflatable spa.
One of the best things about a portable hot tub is the fact that you don’t have to have any tools to get set up. Locate the space you want to set up in and lay down your ground mat. Open up the hot tub on top of the ground mat and using the inflation hose attached to the hot tub pump unit with the gauge attached inflate your tub until the gauge reads 1.2 then it’s filled to the right level. Don’t forget to inflate the inside of the cover, as you’ll need it when you set the heater going.
The jet heads here are called HydroJets and as we said, have a duo functionality. There are eight big heads that can also be adjusted by hand to the direction that please you the most, while the adjustment of the function is set through the digital controller of the inflatable hot tub.About the salt water filtering system, it makes a robust engine, not considering specifically size, but technology.
Mildew grows in damp and humid environments, so these are ideal. It can cause a nasty reaction for those who suffer from allergies, the young and elderly so it is essential to keep yours mould-free. If you do have mould in your inflatable or on the cover mix a small quantity of bleach with washing detergent and water to clean away or alternatively purchase a specialist mould remover.
This product fit's the Coleman Lazy Spa very well. The cover does not fit over it very well so I suggest removing it before attaching the cover, otherwise it will just get knocked loose when you remove the cover, and you will have to put it back on. We set a small light on it and two 12oz adult beverages, and had no problems with it being unstable. I will probably purchase one more.
Lay Z Spa, now also known as SaluSpa, are categorized into 3 groups: AirJet, HydroJet, and HydroJet Pro. The AirJet series is their most basic and most affordable models. They have standard water filtration installed and air bubbles for massage jets. The Hydrojet and HydroJet Pro are their high-end models with additional water treatment system and additional massage jet type as well.
Have you ever set in a pre-fabricated hot tub? If so, you’re probably familiar with the built-in bucket seats. Unfortunately, with the inflatable tubs, you’re not going to have built-in seats. However, as we mentioned, the entire tub offers soft cushioning, so in all actuality, while built-in bucket seats would have been nice, it’s really not needed.
