Inflatable hot tubs offer lots of advantages over built-in or hard-shell tubs. Most people like them because they are inexpensive and portable, like the Homax Inflatable Spa.
However, many inflatable spas have a potential downside: they are round. Round hot tubs don’t fit well into corners.
A square hot tub, on the other hand, can fit snugly into a corner on a patio or against a wall. If you want to add benches or lattice around it, you can make it look more like a built-in hot tub. Octagonal inflatable spas also work well in this respect.
Another nice benefit to having an inflatable spa with corners is that you can lean into them. Remember, inflatable hot tubs don’t typically don’t have built-in seating, so corners can actually be a comfortable benefit.
When compared to its round counterpart, a square inflatable hot tub is very similar in size, operation and seating capacity. For example, the Homax has a 158-gallon water volume and seats 6 people.

Ready for Cocktails?… The “Square” Homax Inflatable Spa
This inflatable spa also has a wide temperature range of 68 F to 104 F. I personally like to keep my hot tub heated at about 102 degrees during the winter and about 85 degrees during the summer. It’s a great way to cut down on heating costs and gives you the benefit of having a “cool tub” without having to build (or maintain) a pool.
The Homax spa comes with a one-touch install system which self-inflates the tub in minutes. The longest part of the set-up process is waiting for the water to heat. That said, if you want to speed up this part of the process, consider filling the tub with warm or hot water.
