    We absolutely love it. Very easy to put together. It gets very hot, and provides a great spa experience for such a great value. I agonized over which model and brand to get, and I’m happy with my choice.

    So far this has been good money spent, I have appreciated being able to soak in hot water and ease tense muscles and that was the goal, so I am satisfied. Set up is incredibly easy, I have emptied and filled it once already, I wanted to reposition it for winter. So far it has only gone down to high 30’s at night but it still stays between 102- 104. I did place construction grade foam insulation underneath it so there would be a barrier between the cold cement during the winter, who knows if it helps, couldn’t hurt. It is very stable, the sides really are very sturdy and you can sit on them, I weigh 170..

    I am considering wrapping the tub in sealed insulation for the winter, again, who knows if it will make a difference, may not get to it anyway, I will update how the pump does through a Salt Lake City Utah winter.

    have it in my garage for now until weather is nicer. I can’t imagine having this out in the winter as I don’t think the heater would ever shut off. It took three days for mine to reach 104 in 55 to 60 degrees in my garage. I haven’t seen my power bill yet and I’ve kept it around 102 degrees. The temperature does drop by 5 degrees when you turn on the jets but it’s still hot enough.
    We have very hard water and it’s taken three weeks to get my PH down and alkalinity down to normal. Every day I’d check it and put a half a teaspoon of PH down in and ues bromine and non chlorine shock. The levels have stayed good for a week now and I test it every day. Some people talked about it hybernating if you don’t use it but I use it every day! I love this thing and although it’s not like a big hot tub on keeping the water hot while you are running the jets it still has an amazing amount of power with only bubbles. It definitely has helped my arthritis and stress levels and I sleep so much better after using it.
    Saying it will fit four people is a joke to me. Your legs will be on top of each other and if that’s okay with you then go for it. My husband and I can stretch our legs next to each other but it’s not as comfortable as just one person sitting in it.
    All in all it was the best purchase I’ve ever made and has reduced my pain and stress more than I could’ve imagined. I’ve only had it a month so will update after six months.

    I gotta say, I was skeptical about this thing. I think what ibwas hesitant about was first, the quality of an inflatable Hot Tub and second was the fact that u just sit on the floor. I couldn’t imagine this being comfortable. So I got this for my birthday and it says for a bit because i wasn’t sure where to set it up. I looked into decks and patio pavers for outside. My wife finally just suggested we set it up in the garage since our home gym is in there anyway.

    Opened the box and found some instructions at the bottom of one of the sections. You basically screw on an air hose to the pump and the tub and turn on the air. It inflates in about 5 min. Then you take that hose off and connect the 3 connections that match up to the pump. It’s impossible to get any of this wrong. Once you do that you just drop a hose in and fill her up. I turned on the heater as soon as the water covered all the jets. This helped heat the water quicker, but it still took a day to get to 104. I don’t think the temp is true to what it reads. My friends hot tub at 104 is almost unbearable.

    So how is it overall?? Amazing. Setup was fast and this thing is great. As for sitting on the floor.. it just works. It’s comfortable and because it’s vinyl and not a hard material you don’t slide. The jets are all around the base of the tub but if you lean on the side they work your back pretty good.

    If you’re even considering one of these just buy it. For $199 Or so you will NOT be disappointed! Oh and I didn’t receive anything for this review. I guess some people do because I read it in their reviews.

    I’ve owned the hot tub for about a month now and can make some comments and recommendations others might find useful.

    1. Setup is fairly easily and straightforward. Another reviewer commented that the directions are terrible, but I don’t think they are. It took about 30 minutes to get everything setup and ready to inflate, then another 10 to inflate it. I don’t think the manual mentions it, but place the “insulation blanket” (which is essentially a sheet of heavy duty bubble wrap) with the bubble side face down under the hot tub (and obviously before you put water in it). This will prevent rain, snow & crud from building up in the little voids between the bubbles.

    2. As another reviewer pointed out, you can buy a connection for an indoor faucet that connects to a garden house (I got one at Home Depot for $7) and allows you to fill it with warm water. This is a big time saver in that you don’t have to wait for the cold water taken from an outdoor spigot to warm up, especially if you’re chomping at the bit to use your new hot tub. According to the specs, the tub holds 254 gallons at 80% filled. There are two lines drawn on the interior wall – “min” and “max”. I believe the 80% line is the “min” line. I filled mine from my kitchen sink in approximately 4 hours. The flow rate from my sink (measured using a 5 gallon bucket and a stopwatch) was about 1 gallon/minute. I have fairly weak water pressure so others may be able to fill up faster.

    3. If you don’t fill the tub using warm water, you will have to wait until the tub reaches the temperature you want. The tub can heat the water approximately 2 deg per hour. So, if you used 50 deg water from your outdoor faucet, and you want the tub at 100 deg, you have to wait 25 hours.

    4. WEIGHT: Do NOT put this on your outdoor deck unless it was designed for it. It might not look like it, but a filled hot tub is incredibly heavy. Water weighs about 8.3 lb per gallon, so at 80% fill height this hot tub will weigh about 2110 lb not including the people that get in it. The specs say the “filled weight” is 2701 lb but this probably incorporates four average people and is a useful design number. Most outdoor decks are built to about 50 lb/ft^2. You probably need a deck built to 100 lb/ft^2 to hold this or any other hot tub.

    5. The tub can hold four average size people.

    6. ENERGY: As an engineer, I’m obsessed with how things are built and use energy. I measured the current draw when it’s operating. There are essentially four modes of operation: (1) circulating pump ON with heater ON (2) circulating pump ON with heater OFF (3) air pump ON (produced bubbles) (4) everything OFF. When I say “circulating pump” I’m referring to the pump that circulates water through the filters and through the heater. The bubbles are created by an air pump that pulls in outside air (which can be cold!) and out the little holes in the bottom of the tub. Note you can’t run the heater with the bubbles on as it shuts off automatically. When the pump and heater are ON, it pulls about 1250 watts (1.25 kW). When just the air pump is on producing bubbles, it pulls about 650 watts. Therefore, if you have the temperature set at its max of 104 deg, you may find it running all the time with the heater on. As a conservative example of cost, at 15 cents per kilowatt-hour, you’re looking at it costing $4.50 per day (24 hours x 1.25 kW x 15 cents), or $135 per month. The temperature setting is everything and I would suggest keeping it at 100 deg all the time (particularly if you live in a cold climate like I do) and if you know you’re going to use it later, crank it up to 104. It will take a couple of hours to reach that. When you’re done, set it back to 100 deg. Another reviewed mentioned it only cost them about $20 month. I’m not sure how that was possible, but maybe. I’m expecting mine to cost about $100 per month in electricity.

    7. ENERGY TIP: Putting some kind of blanket over it during the day will vastly reduce the amount of heat loss. I stitched together two moving blankets and have been laying them over the hot tub inflatable cover when I’m not using it. I need to figure out how to put the blankets in some sort of waterproof wrapping so they can be out there in the rain and snow. Another suggestion is to find some sort of insulation (preferably waterproof) below the hot tub. The supplied “bubble wrap” liner they give you to put under it probably isn’t sufficient. Mine sits on my deck (yes, I designed my deck to support a hot tub weight) and the cold air from below is obviously sucking out some heat. This is similar to the effect on bridges where they freeze before the roads do since their underbelly is exposed and cool off faster.

    8. Bubbles cool the water off fairly quickly. As mentioned it pulls in cold outside air and pumps it up through the nice warm water. It’s not ridiculously fast however, just something to keep in mind. I would estimate it cooled off from 104 deg to 100 deg in 15 minutes or so where the outside air temp was about 45 deg.

    9. SOUND: It’s very quiet when just the circulator pump and heater are running, like a low frequency hum. When the air pump is running it’s about as loud an average vacuum cleaner. It’s really not bad at all and you can have normal conversations sitting in the tub.

    10. Educate yourself on the chemicals by reading about them online or going to a pool/hot tub store and speaking with someone who knows what they are talking about. After reading about them online, I went with Bromine tabs (over Chlorine). I bought some pH increaser, pH decreaser and some “Shock”. And don’t forget the pH testers (that also test for a number of other things). The chemicals will set you back $60-$100. Having the right pH, Bromine level, Alkalinity, etc. is imperative to keeping the water useable.

    11. The filters clog up pretty quickly, so I would order a bunch of them just to have. Some people have said they wash theirs in the dishwasher. I have only rinsed my in the sink so far, but make sure you rinse them often. I’m not a chemist, so correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe the chemicals that are added to the water work to (among other things) bind up oils. Remember, you’re essentially sitting in reusable bath water. The filters look like they get filled with a light brown sludge that must be the stuff its binded up. Keeping the filters clean is essential to keeping the tub clean and having the heat pump work effectively.

    12. TIP: make sure you take a shower, and ask your guests to take a shower if possible before they get in your tub. Also, rinse your bathing suit with fresh water before you get in as detergent is usually still in the fabric and will go right in the hot tub. Eventually, you’ll see lots of detergent bubbles on the surface.

    13. You don’t need a chair or cushion for the inside. When I was contemplating purchasing it, I wondered how people sat in it since there obviously weren’t built-in chairs like a real hot tub would have. The floor is cushioned enough that it is very comfortable. You CAN buy a cushion to sit on or even for your head, but you don’t NEED it. The water height is about 3’, so a normal size person (I’m 5’ 10”) can sit in it and put their rest their arms over the side.

    14. ANNOYING FEATURE: This is the single complaint I have about the hot tub. The heater & pump shut off automatically after 72 hours. I assume this is a “safety” feature, although I don’t know how it makes it safer. Bottomline, you have to always check on it to make sure it’s still running. Otherwise you come home from work wanting to get in your nice warm hot tub and you find its 70 deg because you forgot to reset everything that morning and it shut off while you were at work. Super annoying! If anyone knows a hack for this, please let me know.

    In summary, the tub works GREAT considering its inflatable and relatively inexpensive. I’d rate the tub 9.5/10 for value and only misses a perfect score because of the annoying feature described above.

    Love this tub. I’ve had it two months now. Electric bill barely budged $10 a month even the first month when I filled it with 39 degree water and it heated for 4 days straight !! I set it up pretty quick, maybe an hour but I was in no rush. Filled up within 20-25 min tops. It was about 0 degrees out and the pump wont run below 40 so i had to fill the tub while keeping pump inside house until full then had to connect pump and remove stopper caps (not easy reaching into 39 deg water with 0 deg outside temp).. I set up on my porch and to be safe bought 4×4 girders with deck support blocks since tub is well over 2000lbs full with a few adults in it (see photo) $75. This turned into over $500 venture by the time I was done. The first time i sank into that hot water it was all worth it. Its perfect size for 2 people to stretch out nicely. 3-4 people is a stretch unless you dont mind touching each other or sitting indian style. I love the tub overall. Easy set up, great price, comfortable to sit in, easy to maintain, cheap to run.

    The only bad part is in winter if you run bubbles the water temp nose dives and takes a day to recover. I dont really mind because I just like hot water to relax my muscles. Bubbles can be annoying in my humble opinion. Another pain is the pump and heater shut down after 72 hours if not reset. I dont really care about that as I check on it daily.

    Highly recommended for people who want a hot bath without the huge $5000-$10000 price tag.

    We bought this a week ago and love it! Easy to set up and everything works. It doesn’t come with started kit for chemicals. He heats up to the 100’s in about 18 hours. Very comfortable for 2 people, but 3 would be ok too. It’s quite when heating. So far, so good!

    So far we have had no issues with this hot tub. We love it! It is perfect at 104 degrees. The tub was decently easy to setup. The instructions weren’t super easy to read. But we figured it out really quick and got it setup and running in about 30 minutes. It took about 24-30 hours for the tub to get to temperature. The bubbles do knock the temp down but it is still very warm while using it. The bubbles are defiantly strong and feel amazing on your back. This has been an awesome purchase for us. If your looking for a hot tub that doesn’t need a ton of maintenance and you can take anywhere this would be it.

    Perfect choice for the wife and I. Easy set up. Perfect temp (102-104 degrees). Bubbles are powerful. Cover was a bonus. Wasn’t sure about these portable spas, but didn’t have the time or money to invest in upgraded electrical and a standard tub. I am so glad I got this one. It’s quiet, deep enough, big enough, hot enough, and I can’t get enough! Aches and pains handled. Totally recommend to those on the fence.

    I purchased mine awhile ago so i feel i can give a worthy review it is easy to set up and durable, if you are unsure if 104 degrees is hot enough it kinda burns when i first get in i run it at 102 not much difference but doesn’t burn as bad when i get in, i put mine on a concrete slab indoors in my back patio, so i don’t get temperature loss like some reviews, i can be in mine as long as i want and it stays at 102, when it’s time for bed i set the timer to turn on in 3 hours filter and heat for 3 hours, i get up for work and do the same thing again, when i get off work it is at the right temp and crystal clear so i feel i will save on the life of the pump not running it all night and day, my wife loves it, we soak for a bit before bed each night i feel more relaxed and when my head hits the pillow i fall asleep much faster than i used to, so over all it has many benifits to get besides just wanting to spoil yourself, if you are unsure or scared to buy this for some reason, i was to, but now i have no regrets and feel very happy to have it

    Fantastic buying experience from start to finish. Item even arrived a day ahead of schedule much to our delight! ! Spa was easy to assemble; took us about 30 minutes before we started filling it. The spa is remarkably sturdy, considering it is an inflatable. Even if one sits on the sides, it does not have any impact or make an impression. It keeps its pressure up too (no deflating). It takes at least 24 hours for the water to reach the max temperature of 104 degrees, so don’t expect to use if the first day! We figure out what time we want to spa and then use the timer to start heating the water at the appropriate time. Be sure to read up on keeping your spa healthy with the right chemical balance. The bubbles are strong, effective and awesome. Friends and family are amazed by this spa. It has really enhanced our lives (and popularity)!

    This little tub setup in 15 minutes with an advanced viewing of the You Tube set up instructions. Unboxing and arranging everything too the longest. I bought a sink to garden hose adapter and filled it with hot/warm water. I had it filled by 8pm and the tub was ready when I awoke at 0700. My bad back is my cross to bear, so this tub was purchased to help alleviate some of the pain and stiffness. While this tube is not a miracle worker, I definitely feel better after sitting in it for 20 minutes this morning. I look forward to post tennis tub sessions with cold beers in my hand tonight. Even if this tub only gives me 30 sessions, they will be worth 10 dollars each to me. I plan on trying this one out and upgrading to the real deal if I find it helps me.

    My husband and I have experienced hot tubs in 5 star resorts all over the Caribbean. We both agree that even though this looks different, it feels the same. I’m kind of a particular, so I had my reservations. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. My sister is the one who encouraged me to buy this inflatable tub because she had one and loved it. It broke after 2 years. We put this on our little private patio and had just the right amount of space, then we added some multi-color Christmas lights. This is our new favorite spot. We are both on our feet at work all day, so being able to soak our feet and the rest of our aching muscles is a delicious treat.

    All that said, it does require a little maintenance, but not too much. My husband uses a little Chlorine and some shock treatment. One package contains a year’s supply and it was less than $20. We also keep a tarp over the cover because we live in Texas where it gets super hot so we wanted to take extra care. Also, we don’t keep it on all the time. It’s summer now so we just turn it on a few hours before we want to use it and it’s the perfect temp. Take my advice and do it!

    All in all, it took about 45 minutes to put together from start to finish including filling it up with water. Once it was filled, we let it sit for the recommended 24hrs for the temperature to reach 104 degrees. This took about a day and a half. When we were finally able to get in, we pressed the button for the jets to come on and we were totally mesmerized and i t was actually too hot! Also, when both my husband and I got in, the water rose almost to the top wanting to spill over, so my husband got a bucket and took some of the water out. I’m so pleased with this purchase I feel it was definitely worth the investment.

    I love this hot tub. It works well. It does take about a day to heat up after first filling it but after that is easy to set to heat up for wjen you want to use it. I also bought a 6 person dome tent and put the tub inside it so I have a roof and privacy

    Best purchase ever!! We bought this on a whim when deciding we wanted a hot tub. Figured we would try this out first. It was so easy to set up. Took 10 minutes. ( Not including filling with water). The kids used it as a pool during the summer and my husband and I use it as a hot tub at night. It’s very relaxing and comfortable. I wouldn’t put more then two adults in there though unless you are comfortable having your legs on top of each other. It’s good for a couple.
    The maintenance takes your normal hot tub chemicals and you need to clean and change the filters regularly. So add on the expense of the filters plus the added electric bill from running it! But we have found with the cover on it heats up quickly. Let’s see what happens in the winter. So far we love it and would highly recommend.
