Seats: Bear in mind that inflatable hot tubs, as well as most hot tubs in general, are not deep enough to require sitting spots. All inflatable models come with a air cushioned floor that is quite enough to make you comfortable and still insulate the tub. Optionally though, you can purchase seats, while they are not essential to use the tub, specially because it will lift you up and make the immersion less effective. For people who are short, as well as kids, though, the seats can enhance the comfort.

When setup, this heated inflatable spa really looks like an proper hot tub. Its deep blue colour is splendid for what it is and what its used for. The pump is the same shade, and adds to the functional pool effect. White is just not practical for outside use, and many dark colours look gloomy or scruffy. This integrated pool and pump look classy wherever you put them.
Backyard Flexibility. Keeping your pool and your spa entirely separate allows for more flexibility in the design of your backyard oasis. For example, your spa can be located on or in your deck, while your pool lies down a garden path from your deck’s stairs. Your children can play in the pool while you relax in the hot tub, enjoying your calm retreat.
