Features of the Intex Inflatable Hot Tub
The cobalt blue colored Intex Portable 6 Person Inflatable PureSpa Plus Bubble Spa has a seating capacity of 6 with 140 high powered bubble jets. As an additional feature, the hot tub comes with 2 inflatable pillows which can be attached to the side walls. This inflatable and portable hot tub has many features that are discussed below.
Heating System and the Inflatable Cover
The 1300 watt heater heats up the water at about 2 degrees per hour. The PureSpa comes with insulated-inflatable locking cover that helps to keep the water heat in when not in use. The spa will lose about 1 degree of heat every 3 hours. At this rate it takes a while to heat up the water.
When the water is bubbling, the tub looses heat faster. Getting in and out of water too often in cold weather also makes the tub to lose temperature. You can sit in the hot water longer if you leave the bubbles off. In any case, it’s not recommended to sit in hot water for longer than 10-15 minutes at one time.

Digital Control Panel
The digital control panel is located at a comfortable and easy to reach distance. The panel interface is very user-friendly and the buttons are intuitive and very easy to read and follow. You use the control panel to adjust the temperature to meet your preference and activate the 140 high performance bubble jets. It will automatically turn on and off when it gets slightly warmer or cooler than your desired temperature.
Integrated Water Filtration
The Intex Purespa inflatable hot tub comes with water filtration system that is easy to replace, making it very easy to maintain and keep you tub clean.
Built-in Hard Water Treatment System
Hard water can lead to problems in the hot tub itself – scales may build up on the walls, plumbing. The heater may fail prematurely. Hard water clogs the pores in your body, making your skin feel sticky and rough. The built-in 10Watt hard-water treatment system makes your spa water gentler on the skin and you feel more relaxed.
Intex Purespa Jet Massage System
Along with the water heater and the hard water system, the Intex Purespa Jet massage system comes with 140 high-powered bubble jets for your bubble therapy and total relaxation. With the use of the bubble jets you can experience reduction in aches, pains and stress.
The bubble jets make noise similar to a small vacuum cleaner. But this is the same with all the inflatable hot tubs.
Superior Strength – Sturdy I-Beam Construction
Intex inflatable hot tub is made durable with Fiber-Tech which uses thousands of high-strength fibers, beam construction, and a puncture resistant 33 gauge, 3-ply laminate PVC. The beams provide a firm and supportive wall that makes it strong enough to sit on.

There are many differences between the inflatable hot tub and the above-ground hot tubs.
