Inflatable hot tubs are amazing, and the reasons for wanting to purchase one are numerous among fans of these cute, portable tubs with hydro-therapeutic capabilities.
For instance, perhaps you would like a nice, relaxing hot tub in your back yard, and yet installing your average hot tub is too much of a hassle, or takes up too much space, or costs too much money at the end of the day.
This is where an inflatable hot tub can be an excellent choice for people who would love to own their own hot tub, but can’t be bothered with one aspect or another of the more permanent models.
The permanent models are, to be fair, quite a lot of work to maintain. Plus, once they’re there, they’re there. There’s no turning back, if you change your mind later.
Well, you can turn back – just uninstall the whole thing and put it in your basement. Not fun!
However, maybe you were even recommended by a doctor to try hydrotherapy for aches and pains, and a hot tub is simply way out of your budget. What then?
That’s where you pick yourself up one of these babies, slide in, and feel your tensions and cares melt away!
Inflatable hot tubs have come a long way in terms of design and technology, and they start at under $500!
Inflatable hot tubs, if you choose one of the better / best models such as the Coleman Lay-Z Spa or the Goplus 6 Person, will provide you with anything and everything that a normal hot tub can give you, from the hydro massages, quick heating, built in water filtration systems.
On top of that, they’re portable! So if you want to go camping with one, why not? Want to move it to various locations to play with the feng shui of your yard? Go for it!
It’s like someone looked at the best kids pools, which are, of course, tons of fun, and then supped them up for the pure enjoyment of adults everywhere. No sense in adults not having any fun, right?
At the same time, these things aren’t toys – they’re quite sophisticated in their own right, with mechanics that are designed to last and give you all the features you’d want from a non-inflatable model.
What else can an inflatable hot tub offer you?
Well, in addition to being potentially large enough to have several friends (usually up to 4) in there with you, most of the good deals on these inflatable hot tubs come complete with all the accessories you will need to get started right away.
This would include all the instructions you need for set up (ie. a DVD or thorough manual), the proper covering for both the ground and on top of the hot tub, a hose for inflation, a repair patch in case you accidentally fall into the hot tub holding a sword, and, of course, a chemical floater to keep things clean.
Many have an automatic shut off in case you were to leave it running too long. The sides also have handles so you can move it around when it’s inflated but not full of water.
When there’s water in an inflatable hot tub, they get really heavy, so you need to be strategic about where you put them.
