Chilling out in a spa is a fantastic experience though it can often be inconvenient. Not only does this require you to travel out to visit a professional spa but it will also cost you a reasonable amount of money per appointment. Buying an inflatable hot tub is a perfect alternative for this and the Intex PureSpa is one of the most popular spas on the market.
By buying something like this, you can easily recover physically and mentally and that too without having to overspend on something that is important but also unnecessary when unaffordable.
Truth be told, when people decide to try their hands at buying a hot tub, they initially assume that it will cost them a fortune. However, inflatable hot tubs have made it all possible because for a couple of hundred bucks, you can easily buy a top-notch spa that’ll come with various features including bubble jets to create a massage effect.
The Intex PureSpa definitely falls within this category and we’ll take a look at it in a bit of detail in this review.
Intex PureSpa Review for 2016
Inflating the Intex PureSpa is simple because all you’ll need to do is connect the air hose and press the button on a very easy-to-use digital control panel. You won’t even need to watch the DVD that is supposed to provide the instructions on how to get started.
The inflating process is quite quick and will allow you to get started within 10 to 15 minutes. The control panel is quite unique and has a plastic cover over it. Again, this is extremely easy to use and you’ll be able to control all sorts of features of the PureSpa using this.
It’s important to mention a few words about the inflatable nature of the hot tub. You might assume this to have a similar structure to a kiddie pool but this is far from the truth. The material is high quality and thick enough to provide impressive structural stability.
It definitely won’t budge when you place your weight on the walls. The material is impressive because it is resistant to puncture. The best part about this is that it increases the insulation so that there isn’t too much heat lost from the water. There will also be a cover included that is supposed to enhance this insulating effect.
The material used at the base is similar in the sense that it is extremely high quality and comfortable at the same time. Again, this also provides fantastic insulation so that the heat isn’t lost from the bottom of the hot tub.
There is a heat pump provided and you’ll be able to use this to heat the water up to 104 Fahrenheit, which is a fantastic temperature to relax in. The Intex PureSpa doesn’t have powerful jets integrated into it. This is something that we should expect because it is an affordable inflatable hot tub after all.
Despite this, this does come with a large number of jets that create a bubble effect. This does tend to create a pleasant and relaxing effect and you’ll be able to spend hours in the tub without even realizing.
From my experience, the Intex PureSpa has lots of different advantages. We have covered most of these but to summarize, you’re going to be getting a relatively inexpensive inflatable hot tub that is associated with high quality. It is built extremely well and is very comfortable too.
It is also extremely portable so you’ll be able to move in or out of the house with incredible ease. It also comes with a carry case so if you want to use it during a picnic, this will be possible for you too. Due to the fact that, there isn’t any hard material, you won’t be hurting any part of your body and especially your back while sitting.
While there aren’t any built-in seats, the whole structure feels like an air mattress so you should definitely have an enjoyable experience. The jets create bubbles for that amazing spa effect but this can often be noisy. However, while it does make some noise, I would consider this to be on the low to medium side.
As always with these types of products, we have some negative points. One that is common to most hot tubs is the fact that you’ll have to ensure that regular maintenance is carried out if the life of the hot tub is to remain prolonged.
The Intex PureSpa also takes quite a bit of time to reach the maximum temperature of 104 Fahrenheit. This might test your patience but it is also recommended by turning on the heater well before you are intending to use the spa.
Another negative aspect of the PureSpa is the fact that the heater turns off automatically when the bubble jets are started. This will probably be a problem if you’re going to be spending a lot of time in the hot tub but again, you should be prepared for this.
Of course like most products, this has some negative points too but if you look at customer feedback, you’ll notice how well previous users rate the Intex PureSpa. It is definitely one of the better home spas available to buy right now.
