Intex is a well known brand and has been in business very long providing quality products and we look at one of their best, the Intex PureSpa hot tub and its pros and cons.

The pros

Low investment – Not only is this inflatable hot tub inexpensive, it will also offer you a great value for your money. It is made very well with ease of use and could last you years. As a matter of fact, the whole tub will cost you less than just the cover of a portable fabricated tub. It doesn’t get better than that, right?

In or outdoors – Unlike the in-ground spas, or the not-so-portable ones, you could easily use your inflatable spa wherever you like in or out. You can relocate yours depending on the time of year. Well, this will also depend on the space you have in your home.

Sturdy, yet very soft – Despite the fact that it’s a blow up spa, its neither wobbly nor un-sturdy. It is very rigid, actually, so much so that multiple people can use it at a go or even sit on the outer wall without exploding or imploding. However, as strong and tough as they are, the walls and base are quite soft, a quality you don’t get from in build concrete tubs.

Easy to care for – One of the best things about the Intex inflatable tubs is the easy of maintenance. It has replaceable filters as well as a chlorine dispenser that will clean and do water treatment for you.

In built water treatment – Intex comes with a n inbuilt water treatment system that softens hard water.

Better insulation – This tub comers with an insulated top cover  and a thermal floor mat that minimizes heat loss.


Lack of seats – Most inflatable hot tubs do not come with in-built seats. This is more like a bathtub or bathroom spa but only softer. If you have been used to in ground hot und of fabricated portable spas, you know how it feels to sit down while you relax and could be hard for you to imagine using a tub without.

Expensive to heat – This will highly depend on the climate of your location and whether you will use your inflatable spa indoors or out. Of course, it’s a given that inflatable hot tubs will lose heat a lot faster than fabricated spas that come with thicker foam insulation. Some people choose to heat their tubs part of the time to lower the costs.

No bells and whistles – At times and for some people, colored lights, waterfalls and aromatherapy in hot tubs can really enhance the experience but the inflatable spa lacks them. Of course, this does not mean that you cannot get your own but it will cost you more money and more effort.
