Create the Ultimate Retreat With These Cheap Hot Tubs

A hot tub provides the ultimate escape, a staycation on your own land.

There are numerous variables to consider while buying online and purchasing anything sight unseen. The first is generally the cost.

According to Greg Canfield, Leslie’s pool and spa specialist, when someone initially considers purchasing a hot tub, money is nearly always a major concern. “Prices for portable hot tubs range anywhere from $2,000 to $7,500 or more. Hot tubs on the lower end of the price scale tend to have smaller pumps, fewer jets, and few — if any — bells and whistles.”

“If you’re new to hot tubs and just want to ‘test the water,’ so to speak, there are inflatable hot tubs for less than $1,000.” Canfield added.

The massaging system, quick heating system, and integrated water filtration of the Coleman 6-Person Inflatable Hot Tub allow you to relax at the press of a button. Leatheroid pool cover with two safety lock clips and an insulated air compartment built-in. Pump that is digitally controlled and has a soft-touch control panel.

Promising Review: “My house is always full of teens now; they LOVE this hot tub. Way thicker than you think, almost leathery. If you rinse out the filters every day the water stays super clean. The sides are strong enough you’ll be tempted to just sit on them. You don’t care if it’s inflatable when you’re in a 102-degree hot tub watching the snow! Plus for the price, I figure if it lasts two years of heavy use it’s paid for. Neg: It heats up really slow, like 2.5 degrees per hour. The bubbles are strong but a little loud when they run, it sounds like a vacuum cleaner.”
