intex pure spa with plunge pool

Now here’s something different! The Intex PureSpa Bubble Hot Tub and Pool Set.  As the name suggests, it’s an inflatable hot tub and swimming pool combined all-in-one. The idea behind this design is to have the hot tub area where the adults can relax, and the pool area alongside where the kids can have fun. 

This is a great idea, especially if you have ever had the experience of slipping into your hot tub for some quiet relaxation and then your kids come and join you. It usually ends up being anything but relaxing, to be honest. In fact, it usually turns the hot tub into a splash pool. This is great fun for sure, but not the relaxing time you had in mind.

That’s where the Intex PureSpa Bubble Hot Tub and Pool Set comes in – and we love it!  It’s perfect if you have a family with young children. It’s also a great idea for a barbecue or garden party. It’s also a lot more affordable than you might think, with some great deals currently on offer over on the Amazon website..

Intex PureSpa Hot Tub and Pool Set Features & Comparisons

Background Info

The Intex PureSpa Bubble Hot Tub and Pool Set is 152 inches long x 70 inches wide x 28 inches deep. That’s almost 13 feet long by 6 feet wide, so you will definitely need a lot of space to site it.  

As well as the hot tub and pool set itself, remember you’ll also need space around to get in and out, and to place the inflatable benches which come as part of the package.  You’ll probably also want to have enough space around your hot tub and pool set where your kids will want to run around and play.

This isn’t a hot tub you can hide away in the corner of your backyard. It’s a definite leisure feature.

Within the hut tub and pool set, one-third of the area is the hot tub, while the larger part is the pool area. Although Intex say 4 adults can fit in the hot tub, remember this is when all 4 are sitting close together.

If you’re looking for a hot tub where you can lay back and relax, then this is definitely a 2-adult hot tub. Meanwhile, the pool area is big enough to take up to 8 small children, all jumping and splashing around.

What we think is really cool is that there are bubble air jets in both parts of the Intex PureSpa Bubble Massage and Pool Set.  The hot tub area has 120 jets, while the pool area has 150 jets. So your kids are going to love this feature, and enjoy staying in the pool area even more!

Please note though only the water in the hot tub area is heated by the digital heating system.  

The hot tub area holds 210 gallons, while the pool area holds 310 gallons. By heating only the hot tub water, this helps keep running costs down to a minimum.

It does mean though that overall, the Intex PureSpa Bubble Massage and Pool Set weighs over 4,500 lbs. So we strongly recommend you put this hot tub on a solid floor or garden, rather than on a deck. That’s because your deck would need to be incredibly strong and reinforced to take this kind of weight (plus the weight of the people in the hot tub and pool). In total, the hot tub and pool with people in it is heavier than a Ford Taurus with 4 passengers!

Construction

This inflatable hot tub and pool is built of Fiber-Tech material and has an internal construction featuring vertical PVC panels. This makes it extremely strong and durable, but without losing any comfort. It is easily sturdy enough for 4 adults to sit on the sides of the hot tub and the pool without them buckling, as well as to withstand the constant coming and going of the children.

The Bubble Hot Tub and Pool Set also comes with 2 inflatable benches, which are placed outside the hot tub and pool area.  These are great for relaxing, hanging out and chatting with friends, and keeping an eye on the children.

One great feature, as with all Intex portable spas, is the in-built hard water treatment system. This creates an electro-magnetic field that agitates the chemicals found in hard water so they can be quickly filtered out by the built-in water filters.

This makes the water soft and keeps it gentle on your, and your children’s, skin. This is perfect if you live in a hard water area.

How To Set Up Intex PureSpa Bubble Hot Tub and Pool Set

It was a bit of a shock to us when we found the Intex PureSpa Bubble Hot Tub and Pool Set weighs 225 lbs in its box. That means when it’s delivered to your home, you will need to think about how you’re going to get it out into your garden. And how you’re going to maneuver it around.

Because of its size, the Hot Tub and Pool Set takes a little longer to set up than a more regular round inflatable hot tub, such as the Coleman Lay Z Spa. Even then, it is still very easy and should take about 30 minutes.

Firstly, you lay out the insulated ground mat on the ground where you are going to site the hot tub set. Then you lay out the hot tub and pool set on top of the ground mat and attach the inflation hose to the inflator.  It will take around 20 minutes to inflate.  

There is a handy air pressure gauge you get as part of the package, which you can use to check the air pressure when it looks like the hot tub is inflated. The gauge will show you if that is the case.

Our Top Tip: Inflate the 2 benches before you inflate the hot tub and pool. That’s because once the hot tub and pool is set up, it can be a little tricky attaching the inflator and hose to the benches.  



First off, you need to fill the hot tub and the pool area with water – even if you are only want to use one part. Fill both areas up to the maximum fill-line, which you can see on the inside walls. Then switch on the digital water heater and wait for the water in the hot tub to heat up to your preferred temperature.

The maximum temperature of the hot tub is 104F.  This should take about 18 hours, depending on the temperature of the water and that of the surrounding air. 

If you want to speed up the process, you can do what we and many other inflatable hot tub owners do, and that’s add some hot water when you’re filling it up. This cuts down on the time it takes to heat the water, reduces heating costs, and means your hot tub is ready to use much faster!

Enjoying Your Intex PureSpa Bubble Hot Tub and Pool Set

With its combined pool and hot tub, the Intex PureSpa Bubble Hot Tub and Pool Set is going to be somewhere you and your family will want to spend a lot of time over the summer.

When the water is at your desired temperature, simply take the insulated cover off and slip into the soothing warm waters and relax.

Meanwhile, your children will no doubt already be in the pool area before you! Remember, though, it’s vital that younger children must never be left unattended in water this deep. We have written an article which we recommend you read on this topic: Keeping Children Safe In Your Inflatable Hot Tub (opens in a new tab).

Everything you need for a full hot tub spa experience is close at hand. The digital control panel is right next to the tub, so you can turn on the massage system, turn on the water filter, or give the water temperature a boost just by reaching out your hand and pressing a button.

We love the fact that you get those 2 inflatable benches as part of the deal, as these could easily set you back over a hundred dollars if you bought them separately.  

We also appreciate the fact that the cover can stay on the different sections of the hot tub if you want. So if you just want to use the hot tub, you can leave the pool covered over; or if your kids want to play in the pool, you can leave the hot tub covered up. This prevents the hot tub water from cooling, and ends up saving you money!

You might find there are a couple of other accessories you want to get hold of, to enhance your spa experience, such as a headrests, attachable refreshment tray, or a floating Bluetooth speaker.

Intex make some great accessories to complement their inflatable hot tubs.  But as we always say, you can shop around and buy any accessories you want from other manufacturers, as most portable hot tub accessories will fit your inflatable hot tub.  Therefore go with the ones that you appeal to you, as long as they have some good reviews and are at a fair price.

Businessfinancenews.com cannot guarantee that the user of the website will be approved by any lender or for any loan product, will be matched with a lender, or if matched, will receive a personal loan offer on the terms requested in the online form.

The lenders in the network may need to perform additional verifications, including but not limited to social security number, driver license number, national ID or other identification documents. The terms and scopes of loan products vary from lender to lender and can depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the state of residence and credit standing of the applicant, as well as the terms determined by each lender individually. 

APR REPRESENTATIVE

APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is the loan rate calculated for the annual term. Since businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and has no information regarding the terms and other details of personal loan products offered by lenders individually, businessfinancenews.com cannot provide the exact APR charged for any loan product offered by the lenders. The APRs greatly vary from lender to lender, state to state and depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the credit standing of an applicant. Additional charges associated with the loan offer, including but not limited to origination fees, late payment, non-payment charges and penalties, as well as non-financial actions, such as late payment reporting and debt collection actions, may be applied by the lenders. These financial and non-financial actions have nothing to do with businessfinancenews.com, and businessfinancenews.com has no information regaining whatsoever actions may be taken by the lenders. All the financial and non-financial charges and actions are to be disclosed in any particular loan agreement in a clear and transparent manner. The APR is calculated as the annual charge and is not a financial charge for a personal loan product. 

Late Payment Implications

It is highly recommended to contact the lender if late payment is expected or considered possible. In this case, late payment fees and charges may be implied. Federal and state regulations are determined for the cases of late payment and may vary from case to case. All the details concerning the procedures and costs associated with late payment are disclosed in loan agreement and should be reviewed prior to signing any related document. 

Non-payment Implications

Financial and non-financial penalties may be implied in cases of non-payment or missed payment. Fees and other financial charges for late payment are to be disclosed in loan agreement. Additional actions related to non-payment, such as renewals, may be implied upon given consent. The terms of renewal are to be disclosed in each loan agreement individually. Additional charges and fees associated with renewal may be applied. 

Debt collection practices and other related procedures may be performed. All the actions related to these practices are adjusted to Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulations and other applicable federal and state laws in order to protect consumers from unfair lending and negative borrowing experience. The majority of lenders do not refer to outside collection agencies and attempt to collect the debt via in-house means. 

Non-payment and late payment may have negative impact on the borrowers’ credit standing and downgrade their credit scores, as the lenders may report delinquency to credit bureaus, including but not limited to Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. In this case the results of non-payment and late payment may be recorded and remain in credit reports for the determined amount of time.
