Is A Portable Hot Tub Right For You?

Jun 14, 2008
Hot tubs are a great way to relax in the surroundings of your own home. The ability to be able to take your tub with you if you move is also one thing people will consider when purchasing a one. That is why many people choose to purchase a portable hot tub. There are three common types of these kinds of tubs. There is the blow up, the hard sided, and the fiberglass tubs. These tubs are usually smaller than the more traditional hot tubs that are made to be permanently installed.

The hard sided tub is put together in different pieces allowing it to be moved to any where the owner needs. This hot tub comes with the sides and the liner. Installing the sides first and then the liner makes the process of putting it together very easy. The sides of the tub are going to take the most time for some models. These hot tubs can even be installed in a basement or an extra bonus room. The size of the tubs allows you to move and install them easily.

The fiberglass portable hot tubs are slightly on the smaller side of the portable style though they are just a little bigger than a regular bath tub. These tubs will fit through most door ways. This tub may be a little smaller but it will allow you to install the tubs indoors where some other tubs might not fit in your home. This kind of tub is not a real heavy product but checking with how much weight the floor can handle. You will not want to make the floor to sag or be damaged where you will need repairs. These tubs are perfect for those who do not have a lot of space to work with.

The third kind of portable hot tubs is the blow up. This is the easiest of all to install. The only thing to do with this one is to find a level place and then air it up. This tub will most likely need some kind of protection for the floor so that it will not be torn or ripped during the installation or moving process thought they are usually made with durable material. It is always best to put something under it to ensure that it is protected properly. These are not usually as deep as the others and often have to put it outside. This model is easy to move and install with no extra pieces to put together. These models of tubs will only take about five minutes to inflate and begin to fill with water.

All three of these models will plug in to a regular home outlet. These models take any where to twenty minutes or less to install and begin filling with water. Chemical are still going to be needed in the portable hot tubs to reduce the risk of having contaminated water. Most of these models still offer some kind of filtration system to help keep the water as clean as possible. There are also accessories that can be added to the tub to make the tub more comfortable such as some offer blow up seats so that you are seating right on the floor. These hot tubs are great for those who want to purchase a hot tub but do not have a large space to accommodate a regular sized hot tub.
