Intex PureSpa Jet Massage Spa Review 2018
- Finalist for Best Inflatable Hot Tub 2018
Inflatable hot tubs come in different sizes and styles. Some are aimed toward fun and enjoyment, while others focus more on the hydrotherapy benefits that hot tubs have to offer. Intex makes products that stretch across the entire spectrum. It has been an innovator in the inflatable hot tub market and continues to work on improving its products.
The inflatable spas put out by Intex are made from high quality materials. They are built to last and can endure a lot of everyday damage that tends to inevitably happen. They company also offers inexpensive replacement parts and many of its products come with a warranty. This company cares about its customers and tries to ensure a great experience for each and every one.
Criteria For A Great Portable Hot Tub
While portable hot tubs offer many of the same benefits as traditional hot tubs, they typically lack the same powerful massaging capabilities. A great portable hot tub will not simply have massaging bubbles, but will go above and beyond to provide a stronger massaging effect. It should provide the highest quality experience achievable for a portable spa. An inflatable hot tub that can manage to do this would be comparable to even traditional hot tubs.
Another much desired quality for an inflatable hot tub is an outstanding ability to retain heat whether or not the spa is in use. This can come in the form of extra insulation or a powerful heater. Many spas are unable to run the heater while using the air bubbles. A truly great spa will allow you to enjoy the relaxing benefits without losing the comforting heat. It will also heat back up quickly if it does lose heat for any reason.
Intex PureSpa Product Overview
The Intex PureSpa Jet Massage Spa can comfortably seat up to four adults and has a maximum water capacity of two hundred and ten gallons. It has a maximum water temperature of one hundred and four degrees Fahrenheit and four adjustable massage jets. The hot tub is capable of being plugged directly into any standard outlet and has a built in filtration system. It also has a simple, easy-to-use control panel and an included pump. This hot tub has a dark brown exterior and a white interior. It comes with a chemical floater, a locking cover, and a thermal ground cloth.
Intex PureSpa Pros and Cons
Rather than allowing cold air to bubble through the water during the heating process, this spa heats the air before it gets to the water. This helps to speed up the heating process and cuts down on operating costs. The thermal ground cloth and locking cover also help keep operating costs lower. It has a simple set up and is ready to for fill up within twenty minutes. The pump is included, which means you don’t need any tools and it is easily inflated and deflated.
This spa also has the major benefit of not relying on outside air to operate the massage jets, so you don’t lose any heat when they’re turned on. This makes for a longer, more relaxing experience and better heat retention. The jets are higher powered than the typical bubble jets found in other spas. They deliver a firmer massage and can be adjusted to hit especially sore areas. They are also quieter than bubble jets, which is another relaxing benefit.
This inflatable hot tub is also simple to pack up for storage and transport. It has an outlet nozzle on the side and a drain on the bottom to help ensure that every last drop of water is removed. It is made for portability, and many customers were very happy with its ability to withstand the wear and tear that often comes with transporting inflatable items. Those who complained of leaks said they were simple enough to patch and are expected when you are consistently moving it around.
This spa doesn’t do nearly as well in cold weather as it does in warm weather. This is unfortunate for those who live in colder climates and want to enjoy a soak in the crisp winter air. It does hold up better than many other models, however. Some customers also complained that the jets get louder as the hot tub gets older, which turns a quiet hum into an obnoxious noise. Many customers were also concerned that the hot tub didn’t last as long as they would have liked, though it common for it to perform very well for at least the first year.
While the Intex PureSpa Jet Massage Spa is one of the higher priced spas on the market, it is well worth the money. This spa offers a more relaxing and soothing experience than the vast majority of other available spas. If you’re seeking real relaxation, you should definitely consider checking this spa out.
