One of the most popular names in portable hot tubs is the Intex brand. This article’s intent is to rate each one available to educate you on which is the best Intex inflatable hot tub for you.
So you have chosen Intex as the brand of inflatable hot tub you want to purchase, but you’re not positive on what model is right for you. Well, we are going to take a closer look at the different possibilities and figure out which one we like best. I will look at the different sizes available, multiple features, and a brief look at pricing to determine which Intex inflatable hot tub is the best. Without further delay let’s start looking at our first candidate. Click on any of the product images below to see the full specs and current pricing for the model.
This 85 inch Intex inflatable hot tub is one of the larger ones you will find. It holds up to 6 people and a whopping 290 gallons of water. The inner diameter measures 65 inches and the outer diameter measures 85 inches. The height is standard to the rest at 28 inches. One thing to keep in mind with the larger units is the time it takes to heat the water. At this unit’s size, the temperature moves approximately 1-2 degrees F/hour where as the 4 person tubs heat at a rate of 2-3 degrees F/ hour. I don’t always want to (or have time to) plan ahead when I want to relax in my inflatable spa. For that reason, I would opt for one of the smaller 4 person tubs.
The best Intex inflatable hot tub has to be quick and easy to setup and get going and this one definitely fits that description. You can also see over 1000 customer reviews on Amazon (500+ being 5 star reviews) for this particular model. The inner diameter for this tub measures 57 inches, the outer diameter is 77 inches and the height of the unit is 28 inches. The capacity of this spa is 210 gallons of water and holds up to 4 people. The filter does make a low buzz, but it is hardly noisy, and almost nonexistent if you have the jets running. This tub is also the most affordable of the different models, and you wouldn’t necessarily know it, since it has just as many features as the others in the similar price range. This one is definitely a contender for best Intex inflatable hot tub.
This is the deluxe model of the Intex PureSpa inflatable hot tubs. It is available in the traditional round shape, or you can get it in an octagonal shape as well. The round shape has the same dimensions as the previous reviewed model so I will stick to the dimensions of the octagonal design instead. The capacity is the same at 210 gallons and up to 4 people. The height is still 28 inches but the outer diameter gets a little boost to 79 inches as well as an increase in the inner diameter to 59 inches. Not only does this model include the standard 120 bubble jets that the other intex inflatable hot tubs do, this also includes 4 massage jets for an extra luxurious feeling. If not for the price (it being almost double) this would be hands down the best Intex inflatable hot tub. Let’s wrap it up and see how they all compare.
Best Intex inflatable hot tub is…
While all 3 Intex PureSpa hot tubs have their own pros and differences, what you choose will come down to personal preference. Looking objectively (without price concern) the best of the 3 would have to be the deluxe model. Unfortunately, at double the price, I don’t see the added bonuses being worth the extra value that you pay for it. So my choice for the best Intex inflatable hot tub is the Intex 77in PureSpa Portable Bubble Massage Spa.
Is there something else you think I should add to this? Maybe a model that I didn’t include and you think should be looked at? Let me know in the comments below and I can always take a look.
