When it comes to selecting a spa, one of the most important things is to take your needs into account, as well as what you plan on using the hot tub for. Each spa comes with its own limitations, with some designs being better suited to certain needs than others.
What I will be looking at is the entire Intex hot tub line. This includes smaller hot tubs made to accommodate two to three people and larger ones made to accommodate four people or more, as well as two different spa types - bubbling and jetted.
About The Product
The Intex hot tub line caters to all manner of needs, with portable hot tubs that come in a range of specifications.

Each spa is also designed to focus on comfort, ensuring that users can sit comfortably, just like they would in a traditional wooden or plastic hot tub.
The Intex hot tub designs come in a range of sizes and shapes, with some spas having a circular shape and others being octagonal.
Each spa design has different specifications, with each one offering amazing bubbles or jets, with some designs having up to 120 powerful jets.
There are three main spa designs; these are jet spas, bubble spas, and jet and bubble spas, each of which offers something different.
Over time, hard water and calcium build up can impact a spa’s efficiency, which is why designs like the PureSpa come with a built-in water treatment system. This helps to prevent damage being caused to the spa by hard water and calcium, extending its life.

There are various benefits of having your own private hot tub in your garden or your home.
From using your spa to destress and unwind at the end of a long and hectic day to using to keep your guests entertained at parties, BBQs, and get-togethers, there are various benefits of owning your own space, that’s for sure.
For anyone with muscular pain or injuries, hydrotherapy can be an effective method of relief.
Usually, hydrotherapy is done at a public pool, but if you have your own private hot tub, you can get the same relief at home. There’s nothing quite like relaxing in a jetted hot tub in the comfort of your own home, soaking your sore and aching muscles.
When it comes to buying and setting up an inflatable spa, it should be a simple and straightforward process, and with Intex’s range of spas, it is.
You simply place your order, choose your delivery option, and await the delivery of your spa. The spa will be delivered deflated, and you will then need to inflate it and fill it with water before you can use it. The setup of Intex hot tubs really couldn’t be any easier.
What Others Are Saying
When it comes to the response that other buyers have had to their Intex hot tubs, the feedback has been positive. The thing that users seem to like most about the range of Intex spas is how easy they are to set up, use and take down, unlike many other inflatable spas.
There have been various positive reviews of Intex’s hot tubs, from users loving the size and shape of the tubs to people loving how durable the spas are.
One review that stood out though was from a user who holds lots of social functions at her home and wanted something to allow her guests to relax while at her BBQs and parties.
The user loved the fact that the hot tub she picked - the Intex PureSpa - was so easy to inflate, fill up, and use. She was also pleased with the fact that she had a range of options in terms of the size of the tub that she picked, and that Intex sells a range of accessories to go with their tubs, such as extra hot tub benches and other useful items.
An added bonus for her was the power that the tub’s 120 jets offered, making her spa the perfect place for her and her friends to relax and unwind with a glass of champagne.
Although most reviews have been positive, one thing that stood out for users making a complaint about a hot tub because of an error or issue with it, was the fact that the customer service offered by Intex is always top notch.
They always do their best to resolve any issues as quickly as possible, focusing on the needs of their customers and getting replacement parts sent out immediately.
For anyone wanting a durable and well-designed spa that comes with an affordable price tag, the Intex inflatable hot tub line should have something on offer that is a perfect fit.
Intex is a well-known brand in the inflatables industry and has been operating since the early 1970s, which has given them plenty of time to perfect their designs.
The most important thing to check when buying a portable hot tub is the warranty that comes with it and how the company deals with any manufacturing errors. The fact is that the longer warranty a product comes with, the higher quality it tends to be.
You might pay more for a product with a longer warranty but just think of the savings you will be making in the long-run as you won’t have to replace it as quickly.
Where you choose to buy your hot tub from is up to you, but usually buying from the company itself is recommended. As by buying from Intex itself, you can ensure that you are getting a genuine product, and not a knock off version or factory second.

Common Questions And Answers

Inflatable hot tubs are very safe if used correctly. As long as the spa is properly set up and all safety procedures are followed, it will be safe to use. Just remember to be mindful of health conditions that can make spa use dangerous, such as pregnancy, heart problems, and high blood pressure.

- Do I need to buy any extras?
While Intex does offer a range of extras that can be used with their spas, these aren’t a necessity. The only essential extra that you will need is to purchase cleaning chemicals for your portable spa to ensure that it is kept clean.
- Should the heater be left running constantly?
This depends on how much use your hot tub gets. If you use your Intex spa three or more times a week, it makes sense to leave the heater running on a constant basis, but if you use your spa less frequently than that, it’s best to turn the heater off between use.
- How easy are Intex hot tubs to set up?
Intex hot tubs are very easy to set up, it’s just a case of following the simple instructions that come with them. Most tubs require a little air inflation and the use of electricity to set up before water can be pumped into them. The Intex hot tubs tend to take around 10 minutes to set up.
- Where should I set my portable hot tub up?
The best place to set up an inflatable hot tub is somewhere that is flat and smooth and is capable of supporting the weight of the tub, the water, and any users. For this reason, a deck probably isn’t the best place to set it up, but a patio or grass area would be ideal. Obviously, you need to ensure that there is a power supply close to where you have set your hot tub up, as well as a water supply.
- Can Intex hot tubs be used inside as well as outside?
All Intex hot tubs are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. While most people choose to set up their inflatable hot tubs outside, some people set them up in their sheds, conservatories, summer houses, or in garages. Obviously, when setting up your hot tub indoors it’s important to think about ventilation and drainage, and it’s also a good idea to use a suitable ground mat
