A Guide To The Best Inflatable Hot Tubs

If you’re fortunate enough to have a garden or outdoor space for an inflatable hot tub or Jacuzzi then why not enjoy relaxing in the comfort of your own garden. Having an inflatable hot tub is a cheaper solution to having a built-in permanent hot tub and you’ll still pretty much reap the same benefits.Lay-Z-Spa Monaco

Many researchers believe sitting in a hot tub carry many health benefits, although there’s no concrete evidence to support some of the health benefits they claim but there’s no denying that a hot tub does provide relaxation, a clear mind and may even relieve stress.

The blow up hot tubs are made with material strong enough that cats are unlikely to cause punctures. Cats would probably enjoy sitting on top of the hot tub when the lid in on because of the warmth it provides but if the cats starts scratching at hot tub then we would discourage this kind of behaviour.

 

Advantages:

  • Doesn’t require plenty of room as it’s not a permanent fixture.
  • Helps to keep you relaxed, have a clear mind and relieve stress.
  • Cheaper than having a permanent built-in hot tub.
  • Quick and easy to assemble which most people are able to do themselves.
  • More hygienic than using a public hot tub or Jacuzzi as you’ll be able to maintain the cleanliness and there will be a lot less people using the hot tub.
  • All models shown in our table has a built-in massage jet system which can help you relax and massage your muscles and joints.

Disadvantages:

  • Structure and material will not be as strong as a built-in hot tub.
  • Only ideal for a small group of people as even models designed for more people will still have less room than a built-in hot tub.

 

How To Choose The Best Inflatable Hot Tub

Buying a home spa for outdoor use can be quite expensive so it’s important to take into consideration factors which will make sure you get your money’s worth.  To ensure you end up with the best inflatable spa in your garden, you should take into account the following:

Place a pop up gazebo over your hot tub for some shelter

Number of people – Each inflatable hot tub will be designed for a maximum number of users, but decide how many people you have mainly have in it. If you’ll mainly be having a larger group using it then it may be worth investing in a model that holds more people.

You should also take into account how much room the users will take, if the users are of above average size then a hot tub designed for a maximum of 4 people might be a bit of a struggle.

Inflated size – This is how big the hot tub will be when it’s fully inflated. You can use this as a guideline for how spacious it will be for the users and also whether the hot tub itself will fit for wherever you’re intending to place it.

If you’re placing it on some wooden decking in the garden the last thing you want is for the hot tub to be slightly hanging over the edge.

Water capacity – This would be another indication of how big the inflatable hot tub would be. This capacity is based on the hot tub being 80% full.

Shelter – You can buy enclosures or gazebos specially designed for hot tubs, however, this tends to be quite pricey.  Alternatively, a cheaper option would be to place a pop up garden gazebo over your portable Jacuzzi.
