Hot tubs are great to have around for a soothing soak, with their hot hot water, bubbling jets, and reclining seating for friends. Good for solitude, couples, or parties. They provide a place of relaxation, and soothe sore muscles, while improving circulation by dilating the blood vessels and warming the body.
Coleman Lay-Z Spa Inflatable Hot Tub Review
However, if your house didn’t come with a hot tub, they are incredibly expensive to purchase and install. They require an electrician and a lot of maintenance, and can even cause mould damage if not properly ventilated. And if you really love your hot tub, how will you take it with you when you move? Instead of all that, we’d like to introduce you to an amazing thing called the inflatable hot tub. Coleman, a company that has been around for decades, makes a great one, which we are going to review here and now.
Portable & Easy Setup
Because it’s inflatable, that means it’s also portable, and very easy to set up. We just can’t seem to escape the Coleman name, but we’re not complaining. For a hundred years their products have proved tried and true. Hot tubs cost tens of thousands of dollars, while inflatable hot tubs only cost a few hundred dollars, meaning you can grab them for camping or for a special party.
Did you know that the Coleman Lay-z Spa made our list of the Best Inflatable Hot Tubs For 2017? Well it darn well did! This thing is so good it gets a whole article to itself. With such features as the Lay-Z massage system, rapid heating, and an integrated water filtration system, it is super easy to set up and use. In just about an hour you can have the whole thing inflated, filled, and ready to rumble. The package includes set up instructions, a DVD with set up and maintenance information, the heating system, an insulated cover, a filter, ground cloth, inflation hose, chemical floater, and a heavy duty repair patch.

Well Constructed Bubble Factory & Massage System
Its mechanics are held inside a green capsule that sits on the ground beside the hot tub. This includes the blower, which acts both as an inflator, and a bubble machine. This thing makes lots of bubbles! The pump and heater make a very low hum, so that you can enjoy conversation while in the tub. The floor is cushioned and super comfortable to relax in. Its superior construction is evident in its cushioned floor, which is an air pad that adds comfort to the back and feet as well as helps to keep the heat in. Inflatable hot tubs tend to lose their warmth through the floor first, so you know Coleman has really thought of everything.
Another amazing feature of this hot tub is its massage system. The tub holds four adult persons at a time. Remember that a hot tub full of water is incredibly heavy (well over two thousands pounds without persons). For this reason we recommend setting up the hot tub on your grass. But don’t worry: it comes with an insulation blanket that lies on the ground between the grass and your hot tub, in an effort to retain heat. We recommend keeping the temperature set at 100 degrees Fahrenheit all the time.
The lining is a lovely mosaic pattern, and the cover is lined with aluminum to keep heat in. The hot tub is made of extremely durable, puncture-proof, 3-ply faux leather so that you can sit against the sides and simply relax. As well, there is I-beam construction in its walls, so you never have to worry about this hot tub buckling or bending. You can set the temperature of your choosing and get in when it’s ready. We love this customizable feature. Once you’re in, you can activate the Lay-Z spa massage system for soothing bubbles.
If you are concerned about energy use or overheating, consider that the heater automatically shuts down after 72 hours. Be sure to check on the hot tub if you plan to use it later in the day, and to cover it when not in use. It has a very convenient drain valve for when you want to pack it up and put it away.
One more quick tip: if you don’t have time to wait for it to heat up, or are concerned about energy use, you can buy a separate adaptor that will enable you to hook up a garden hose to your indoor faucet, so that you can run hot water directly from the house to the hot tub.
Inflatable hot tubs are the way of the future! They are portable, lightweight, and cost-effective, making it easy for almost anybody to have a good time. If you’ve been curious about hot tubs, but don’t want to deal with all the commitment of installation, money, and chemicals needed to maintain it, try the Lay-Z Spa inflatable tub by Coleman. It even comes with a chemical floater that will keep bacteria at bay. Grab one for your next party!
Sells for around $400.
