Inflatable Hot Tub: Is It Worth the Cost?

Inflatable Hot Tub: Is It Worth the Cost?

Published by Programme B

An inflatable hot tub or soft tub hot tub is definitive in garden luxury that can be added to any home regardless of whether you have a large or small garden or back yard. It’s portable, it’s fancy but the real question is: Is It Worth the Cost?

Just imagine relaxing in the cool water on a warm summer’s day or alternatively submerge yourself in the warm water on a cold winter evening. Either way, inflatable hot tubs are so versatile they can be used in all weathers.

1. They’re cheaper and portable

A traditional hot tub is a permanent fixture and can be an expensive item to purchase, but when you buy an inflatable hot tub, it is a fraction of the price and is portable so can be moved around even when inflated. For that reason, we believe it makes sense to buy an inflatable version. However, you still need to make sure that the hot tub is durable and high quality. We recommend checking out a buyers guide that will help you to find the best model for you, so you can make the right decision.

2. They’re durable and comfortable

The beauty of inflatable hot tubs is that they are constructed from thick durable PVC that will withstand the high pressure of water while the spa is in use so even if you bounce around you can be sure that they will provide great support and comfort. Obviously, the best hot tub is one that is a permanent fixture, however, if you don’t have the room or cannot afford a permanent fixture then a portable inflatable hot tub may be just the product.

They’re extremely durable and are therefore unlikely to burst or tear with frequent use, and they have even been known to survive treatment by the roughest kids and guys in the household. And what a great fun way to entertain family and friends by inviting them around for a dip in your soft tub hot tub

3. You can install them on any flat surface

The beauty is you can put it any place where you have a flat surface (although preferably it is best outdoors unless of course, you have a large waterproof area inside your home) which will hold its weight. So after a long day at work, you can come home and unwind in the hot bubbles and relax in complete enjoyment of your very own hot tub. Being that they are mobile you may also take them on vacation, as well as to a friend’s house if they are having a party.

4. You can move with it when shifting houses

Additionally, if you ever move house then it’s a very simple matter of emptying it and packing it up to take to your new home. The fact is as soon as it’s deflated and folded they fit easily into a small container.

5. Do not require external plumbing

As they do not require plumbing, only a garden hose pipe in order to fill them up, there are many more alternatives to where one can put them. Check out this guide from the unclutterer to find the garden hose that will help you to easily fill your pool with water.​

Indoors they function similar to regular hot tubs with water jets that massage and relax you. The guys at Linton’s In The Garden have done a great job of creating a guide on the things you should look at when purchasing an inflatable hot tub.

You can add chemicals to the water of the inflatable hot tub to maintain clean and clear water, however, it is important to make sure you get the right solutions. Check your local swimming pool and spa supply store to see what variety they have available.

In order to inflate your soft tub hot tub all you need is the automated pump which they come with (or you can get them at the swimming pool supply store) and turn it on and in a couple of minutes your spa will be inflated.

How much do inflatable hot tubs cost?

Of course, an important feature about inflatable hot tubs is the cost. You can get some products as little as $600 which is much more affordable compared to bigger permanent models which run in to thousands of dollars.

Cost for these types of units range from the four hundred dollar mark for entry level units, all the way up to several thousand dollars for high end spas. Of course, the difference in features also varies considerably between the lower and higher priced units, with the most expensive models offering computer regulated temperature and jet functions, multi-directional jets, modern aesthetics with no ‘barrel’ (the external equipment pack that must sit outside the actual spa unit), and of course, lighter weight and extended durability.

Inflatable hot tub vs fixed hot tub comparison

In fact, for many, it is a combination of factors that makes hot tub ownership decidedly difficult. Price, and whether or not you have space to properly install a hot tub is generally at the forefront, though maintenance and operating costs may also leave lingering doubts.

The alternative? How about an Inflatable Hot tub! Finally, one can enjoy a relaxing whirlpool spa without complicated installation or cost. Many of these types of units inflate in minutes and have all the vigorous heated jet action of the more expensive permanent models.

You can create your own spa at home with an inflatable hot tub

It’s fun to visit spas, but it’s even better to have your own spa right in the comforts of your own home. But unless you’re an international superstar with a billion-dollar mansion, there is no way you can fit a spa comfortably in your home. Or is there? Space is among the luxuries and benefits of inflatable spas. These inflatable spas are capable of giving you space without cramping your spa moment. A spa is not really complete without a full-body soak in a warm and vibrating bath. With the many benefits of inflatable spas, you can have as much space as you want and more.

Many medical professionals and therapists actually recommend relaxation in a spa or inflatable hot tub as a way to unwind and lower stress. It is established that the water jets massage any tight muscles and relieve stress resulting in a healthier body and mind.

The benefits of inflatable spas do not stop here. Other than being space savers and providing instant spa access, the inflatable spas are also portable. Usually made of canvas and nylon materials, these inflatables are easily folded and stored in bags or boxes. These are also sturdy and have enough material strength to withstand rough surfaces. As such, these spas are perfect for outdoor trips and cabin vacations. These inflatable spas might just be the things you need to bring the comfort of home in your wood cabin. With the many benefits of inflatable spas, there is really no reason not to get one.

An inflatable hot tub can truly be a portable paradise! Imagine relaxing and treating yourself to a soothing hydro-therapeutic massage at any time and any place you desire. These types of units are great for the backyard, the cabin at the lake, parties, or even your RV!
