Times gone by, hot tubs were a thing of indulgence and a costly one at that. The inflatable hot tub changed all that. Let me show you a world where you can own your own hot tub and enjoy it with your friends and family.
You most probably found this page after doing a search for an inflatable hot tub or portable spa or some other reference like Jacuzzi, so you probably have an idea of what one of these portable hot tubs have to offer and a little about them.
You're probably bordering on the fence of, should I buy a porable hot tub for my home or not? Spending money on a luxury item is always difficult and we always spend a lot of time researching if it's for us and what is the best deal.
Let me start by saying that's what this site is all about. I created this site as I was doing my own research and wanted to list the things I found in one place for the benefit of everyone.
When I started my search it was from the part of a hard shell hot tub was soo expensive - so an inflatable hot tub just seemed to make more sense financially.
As well as that it's portable. Inflatable in the name really gives that away. You can put it up when and where you want. It can stay up. Be packed away. Taken to a new home if you move.

There are not many things in life as pleasurable as sinking into a hot tub after a hard day, or after your Christmas pudding. The great thing about these inflatable hot tubs is that they are affordable and do what they say on the tin.
What I mean by this is that they provide a wonderful spa experience. You get warm water to relax it while the bubbles massage away the day's tension.
They are easy to put up, just inflate. Then it's just a matter of filling it up, turning it on and relaxing.
Then, if limited for space, you can always take down again - though I would believe once up and experiencing the joy - it will be a permanent feature at your home.
