Do you want a compact, affordable and easy-to-use portable spa that you can use at home? AquaSpa makes inflatable hot tubs that are simple to set up, and they have the heater and filtration built right into the side panel.
Why I Like this Smaller Inflatable Spa:
1. Heating & Filtration System Built into Spa:
First of all, you don’t have to have an external heating unit that sits beside the spa. Consequently, you get cleaner look with less equipment and easier setup.
The digital control panel sits right on top of the sidewall, so you can easily reach it to turn the bubbles on or off. Plus, the basic design makes it simple to operate.
This integrated water filtration system works together with the heater, so again, less equipment. You can manage everything in one spot.
2. Compact Spa Size Can Save You Money & Space:
Second, this hot tub is slightly smaller than the square Coleman spa or round Intex PureSpa. Therefore, it holds less water to heat, which can save you some money in energy costs.
In addition, the square shape of the spa fits snugly up against a wall. This can help conserve heat as well. (You can choose either circular or square design by the way).
3. It’s Easy to Set Up the AquaSpa:
Third, set up is quick and easy. For example, AquaSpa only takes 5 minutes to fully inflate, and you can fill it with water in about an hour.
Then, turn on the heater and just wait for the tub to heat up. I typically plan on 24 hours for this step (expect a heating rate of about 2-3 degrees per hour). However, it may not take that long, depending on the starting water temp and air temperature.
4. Efficient Design Makes Spa Ultra-User Friendly:
Fourth, you can use the included inflation hose to also drain water from the tub. In other words, you don’t have to buy and store a bunch of extra gear to run your spa.
And weighing only 57 pounds when empty, 2 people can very easily pick up and move the tub with its convenient carrying handles. This system is designed to be very efficient and user-friendly in multiple ways.
5. Sturdy, Safe and Low-Maintenance Features:
The AquaSpa comes with an insulated cover to prevent heat from escaping. This saves you money on heating costs, plus it keeps debris out of the spa (and kids with the child-proof lock).
The shell is made from heavy-duty PVC, making it resist punctures and maintain its sturdy walls. Although you can save money on this budget-friendly spa, it is not cheaply made.
Things You May Not Like About this Budget Hot Tub:
1. Bubble Spa VS Hot Tub Jets:
The AquaSpa has 120 bubble jets rather than more powerful jets. Therefore, you don’t get the vibrating, massage-like therapy that you’d get from a traditional hot tub.
That said, warm water an offer plenty of therapeutic benefits alone for stiff joints, muscle recovery and more. Plus, the bubble jets add a different soothing effect.
2. This Hot Tub Fits Fewer People:
Although advertised as a 2-4 person hot tub, I think that this smaller-sized spa can really only fit 2 adults comfortably. For instance, the Coleman 4-person spa has a measures 11 inches wider and longer. This gives your guests more space to relax, rather than feeling cramped in a more confining space.
3. Lacks Hard Water Treatment System:
This unit does not include a hard water treatment system, like the Greywood Intex PureSpa. This factor may not matter to you, unless you live in a location that has hard water.
4. No Built-in Hot Tub Seats:
Inflatable spas don’t have built-in seats. They are not necessary, but you can purchase them separately if you want to sit elevated off the floor of the tub.
