Intex 6-Person PureSpa – Review & Comparison

Do you want a more sophisticated-looking inflatable hot tub without having to pay more money? The Intex 6-Person PureSpa features an upgraded wood-look exterior for about the same price as their standard beige spa.

Intex 6-Person Purespa Fits 6 Adults, has Bubble Jets and Color-Changing Light

Note: Even if you don’t care about the faux wood design, the subtle pattern and neutral color makes this spa blend in amongst landscaping on a patio. In other words, it doesn’t look like a cheap plastic blow up tub. =)

Furthermore, Intex uses fiber tech construction in their inflatable spas for increased structural stability. Therefore, the sides don’t slouch it you sit on the rim of the tub.

Not to mention, the 3-ply industrial strength PVC resists punctures (while it still feels soft against the skin). So, you can relax more in your tub, which it the whole purpose anyway, right?

Advantages of a Built-in Water Treatment in a Spa:

Similar to other PureSpas, this model has a hard water treatment system built into the heating/filter unit. The water softener prevents calcium build up in the spa components.

Therefore, it can extend the lifespan of your tub. Not to mention, less calcium build-up means that your heater and filtration system can operate more efficiently. =)

In addition, “softer” water is gentler on the skin and can feel more soothing. If you want to take soft water a step further, you can get a salt-water spa system. However, with this built-in feature, you may not even want it.

Bubble Spas VS Spa Jets:

Bubble Jet Spa for a Relaxing, Soothing MassageIf you don’t know much about bubble spas, they work differently than you standard spa jets.

Essentially you typically get over 100 smaller bubble jets versus 10 or 15 of the more powerful jets.

People find this bubble therapy spa massage style refreshing, yet not as vigorous as high-power jets. Basically, it comes down to your personal preference and what you like best.

Quick and Easy Inflatable Spa Setup:

How to Set up an Intex PureSpaThis spa sets up in only about 20 minutes. Of course, you’ll need to fill it with water and wait for the water to heat, but you can be doing other things while you wait. (Like sleeping!)

In addition, emptying and delating the unit is super simple. This makes transporting and storing your hot tub very convenient. Plus, it even comes with its own carrying bag!

You can find specific assembly, parts and maintenance instructions in the PureSpa user manual.

Note: Talk about cheap and easy setup plus versatile portability! These are 2 key advantages that blow-up spas have over the traditional portable models.
