Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for an affordable inflatable hot tub that is an excellent alternative to the more expensive, permanent fixtures that are common in many backyards and vacation homes.

Pros:

  • Rather than paying technicians to install your hot tub, the Intex PureSpa comes with step-by-step instructions for do-it-yourself setup. Installing the hot tub spa on your own contributes to the already affordable price, which is considerably less than what a comparable permanent spa would cost.
  • The Intex PureSpa will fit four adults, and has spa capabilities to treat all four with soothing bubbles at the same time. The tub itself is more comfortable than traditional spas since its walls, floors and seats are cushion-like rather than hard plastic.
  • You can install the hot tub indoors or outdoors, as long as it is not on a slope. It is easy to maintain the spa if you change the water filter regularly and the water every three months or so. When you have emptied the spa, a simple soap and sponge will take care of any residue left behind.
  • This spa has a wide range of temperature capabilities, ranging from 39 degrees Fahrenheit (four degrees Celsius) to 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius).

Cons:

  • You may need to keep an eye on your spa’s level of inflation depending on your climate’s temperature fluctuation. Air expands when the weather is warm, and contracts when cold, so the tub may appear too soft on occasion. Adding some air with the air pump may help, but do not overinflate, especially if you are expecting a rise in temperature.
  • The Intex PureSpa does not come with chemicals with which to treat the water. However, you can find them at your local home goods or hardware store. The spa does include test strips and a chlorine dispenser.
  • The spa water will heat at a rate of two to three degrees Fahrenheit per hour, so be patient when heating your hot tub. In addition, turning on the bubbles causes water temperature to decrease faster. Installing your PureSpa indoors will help moderate the water temperature, as will keeping a ground cover in between the hot tub and ground if you install it outdoors.

Guarantee: 1-year warranty.

Summary

The Intex PureSpa Inflatable Portable Hot Tub Spa is a great option for hot tub users wanting to try out an easy-to-use, affordable product. Nothing beats relaxing in a cozy spa in the comfort of your own home! Though you need to keep an eye on the spa’s inflation as well as purchase chemicals to treat the water, the versatility, comfort and size of this portable spa cannot be beat for such a reasonable price.
