Portable Hot Tub – All About Portable Hot Tubs

Lightweight portable hot tubs are great for those who don’t want their hot tubs set in stone and could might want to move their portable hot tub at some point. There are many reasons to why one might want to move their hot tubs. You might want to move your portable spas to get more privacy from your neighbors, get it away from a nasty tree that contaminates your water, or because you are moving and want to bring it with you to your new home.

Modern technology has advanced these portable hot tubs significantly by making them lighter, stronger, more durable and better performing than ever before. In this page we’re going to list the different kinds of portable hot tubs, compare features, performance, durability and price.

    • Inflatable Hot Tub

An inflatable hot tub (also known as soft side hot tubs) is exactly what the name entails. There is a pump that goes into the hot tub and blows it up with air, which gives these portable hot tubs their shape. The biggest advantage of these types of hot tubs is that they are the cheapest hot tubs offered on the market and the setup is quite simple. They are also small, so they can fit just about anywhere – indoors or outdoors. They are great for people who are renting a house or those who live in an apartment, and would like the luxuries of owning a hot tub.

The biggest downfall to these portable hot tubs is the features, or lack thereof. They normally are very small, only have bench seating, very few jets (if any at all), no entertainment options, no headrests and less power coming from the portable hot tub pumps compared to other hot tubs. Another thing you should be aware of is that since they are filled with air, they aren’t going to be as durable as other models.

These portable hot tubs can be purchased new for anywhere from $800-$2,000.

    • Hard Side Portable Hot Tubs

A hard sided portable hot tub has a solid hot tub shell, usually weighing around 90 pounds. They come in pieces that are usually pretty easy to put together. They are usually the 110 Volt hot tub models that can plug into a standard US outlet. These portable hot tubs are more durable than the inflatable models, still fairly cheap, and offer more features and can be bigger in size.

The main disadvantages of hard side portable hot tubs is almost the same to that of the inflatable ones. They don’t offer as many features as other hot tubs, less jets, are usually smaller in size, less entertainment options, and they aren’t as durable as other models.

Hard sided portable hot tubs can usually be purchased new anywhere from $800-$2,500.

    • Fiberglass or Synthetic Material Portable Hot Tubs

These hot tubs are the more permanent types of portable hot tubs. They are usually heavier, bigger, and more durable than the other portable hot tub models I mentioned above. They are fairly easy to assemble/disassemble, don’t require expensive plumbing or wiring that permanent models do, can be moved inside or outdoors, and can also come with all kinds of features such as size, jets, entertainment options, many different seating designs, headrests, etc.

Disadvantages of these models include price (they are the more expensive compared to the other portable hot tubs mentioned above), they aren’t as durable as permanent hot tubs, and not as easy to assemble/disassemble as the other models I mentioned.

These types of portable hot tubs can be purchased new anywhere from $2,000-$6,000.
