What is an inflatable hot tub?

An Inflatable hot tub is simply a soft hot tub (blow up hot tub) commonly made from some sort of PVC vinyl that needs to be inflated before use either with a hand pump or via the control panels blower. Inflatable hot tubs are commonly known as portable hot tubs due to the ease of which they can be installed and located to just about anywhere where access is restricted, however with an inflatable hot tub there are a few draw backs being that they take between 24-36 hours to heat to the ideal temperature as they don’t have insulation which in-turn costs more to run.

What is a portable hot tub?

A portable hot tub, also known as a rigid or foamed hot tub are two completely different types of hot tubs from two different manufactures with the rigid hot tub being manufactured by MSpa (model: Premium Tuscany Portable Hot Tub and Spa) and the foamed hot tub being manufactured by Canadian Spas Co (model: Swift Current Portable Spa). Both these types of hot tubs are sometimes mistakenly described by hot tub rental companies as a solid hot tub, but this is defiantly not the case as;


The Rigid hot tub by MSpa (Premium Tuscany Hot Tub) is a completely portable hot tub that is built in sections using wood effect panels to give a clean contemporary design which resembles more of an acyclic-standard looking hot tub.


The Foamed hot tub by Canadian Spa (Swift Current Portable Spa) has been designed to allows the spa to be placed virtually anywhere as the hot tub is built in sections using foamed side panels which gives the hot tub a much better thermal insulation than any inflatable hot tub.

IMPORTANT: If you are reading this blog as a customer looking at hiring a hot tub, please read on as the information highlighted below is very important when considering renting a hot tub.


In our telephone and electronic survey to 97 Hot Tub Rental Companies across the UK, almost all the companies who took part in the survey reported their growing concerns on the increasing number of hot tub rental companies who only advertise on social media (Facebook, Gumtree and online events platforms) for cheap hot tub hire – You may be thinking, so what, I’m getting a great deal… or are you? Read on…


For example, a hot tub rental business had shown us a company (sole trader) advertising for a weekend hot tub hire for only £100? This does sound like your about to get a real bargain, but when you do the maths of calculating the actual true costs of renting a hot tub, this should definitely ring alarm bells as hiring a hot tub at that rate, the person renting the hot tub would need to be cutting a lot of corners for them to deliver the hot tub safely to you at that price advertised and probably isn’t following or aware of the current Health and Safety Guidelines (HSG282) nor would they have the relevant water management certificate.


What questions should I ask when hiring a hot tub

  1. Will the advertised hot tub (image and description) be the actual style of hot tub I will be receiving?

  2. Do you supply all the relevant chemicals and instructions?

  3. Will you be supplying a new filter with my hire?

  4. Do you have any water management certifications?

  5. What safety measures do you have in place in relation to the control of legionella?

  6. Do you have public liability insurance?


If any of the companies you are intending to use say “No” to any of the questions above, its our advice that you look for a different company as the safety of you are your guests are at risk.


Because of the response of our survey, we will in the next couple of months write a fuller in-depth blog regarding “rogue hot tub hire companies” but will need your input for more examples.
