I am a big fan of products made by the Coleman Company. I own their grills, tents, sleeping bags, lanterns and more. Not only that, but I have several of their inflatable gear, including inflatable kayaks, paddleboards and mattresses. They don’t have to “sell” me on their products. I’m already sold.
They are all well-made, very durable and have lasted many years with regular use. When I saw that they made an inflatable hot tub, I knew it was the way to go.
What I really like about Coleman gear is that it is “no fluff”. This inflatable spa is easy and straightforward to set up. Maintenance is minimal, and you simply get equipment that does what it says it will do without a lot of bells and whistles that have the potential of breaking or require extra care.
What Do I Think About the Coleman Hot Tub?
The Coleman Inflatable Lay-Z Spa is No Fluff.
It’s tough, rugged, simple and it works. Take it with you pretty much anywhere and set it up and inflate in just about 10 minutes. Use it indoors or outdoors – and yes, it even works in the snow.
After you inflate the spa, just fill it with water through the spa’s attached pump. Water filtration is built-in to the system, by the way… one less thing to worry about. It takes about 1 hour for the water to heat up 2-3 degrees (typical for any electric model). Plan accordingly for your first use.
How the Coleman Spa Saves You Money:
This inflatable tub doesn’t contain lots of special features, which means you don’t have to pay extra money for them either. Plus, you can easily install it yourself (no tools needed!). Thus, you don’t have to hire a professional plumber electrician or handyman (another money-saver).
Since inflatables don’t have the heavy-duty foam that other portable tubs have, they do cost more to keep heated. This is especially true in colder climates. However, the Coleman includes a tub cover that has an aluminum foil coating to retain more heat and lower heating costs.
If you keep your spa indoors, you’ll save even more money on heating. Tip: I use my hot tub as a “cool pool” during the summer instead of keeping it heated. This significantly lowers my average monthly tub heating bill throughout the year.

The Low-Maintenance Spa You May Call Your Best Friend
In typical Coleman fashion, they include nice, convenient features that you might not consider when buying (but appreciate after you’ve purchased one).
For one, set up is quick and easy. Plus, “take down” is painless too. The Coleman hot tub has a conveniently-located drain valve and easy-lift handles for emptying. They even give you a DVD explaining step-by-step set up and maintenance.
I don’t think it can get any easier.
On top of that, the inflatable spa comes with filter cartridges, a chemical floater and other supplies. Therefore, you have everything you need to get your hot tub up and running without having to leave the house to buy more equipment.
