Lifesmart Hot Tub Reviews
Lifesmart Hot Tub is an excellent plug and play, starter hot tub at an affordable price. A 4 person hot tub with some of the benefits of a full-featured above-ground hot tub. This hot tub is one of the best above-ground hot tub at an affordable price.
- Capacity: 4 persons
- Water Capacity: 190 gallons
- Temperature Range: 800F – 1040F
- Jets: 12 Therapy Jets
- Pump: One 1.5 hp pump
As the name suggests, the Lifesmart Rock Solid Simplicity Plug and Play 4 Person Spa is truly a plug and play hot tub. Unlike the inflatable hot tubs, the above ground hot tubs gives you the real hydro message therapy. The two are quite different; to know more please click here.
The Lifesmart hot tub is a 4 person hot tub that comes with 12 high-therapy adjustable jets. The pump is a mere 1.5 hp pump. But with only 12 therapy jets, the pump provides just enough pressure on your aching lower back muscles and to soothe your stress.
Dimension & Weight
At 70 x 61 x 32 inches in dimension this 4 person hot tub is very compact and will fit almost any lawn. It is compact but provides big benefits in saving space – if you have a constraint. Weighing in about 268 pounds the spa can me moved to a new location if needed.
Although the manufacturer says it’s a four person hot tub and there are actually four seats, you really cannot stretch your legs without touching everybody else – very comfortable seating for 2 full sized adults. The spa will easily fit a family of 4 – 2 parents and 2 kids.
You may want to buy steps to get into this spa. I recommend the Lifesmart Matching Sahara Spa Steps that matches Lifesmart Spa.
The only spa here not made of acrylic. The construction material of this spa is Eco Thermal Plastic – it’s a heat resistant Thermoplastic made from biodegradable and Eco-friendly polymer. The Lifesmart Rock Solid Simplicity the easiest to install among all the spas discussed here. It’s truly a plug and play spa. Being very good insulator of heat, the spa is very energy efficient.
Setup and Power Supply
Lifesmart hot tub is the best plug and play hot tub. You don’t need to do anything. All you require is a 110v power supply. Just plug it into a standard 110v electrical outlet and enjoy the water jet. Lifesmart uses Eco Smart technology, a highly efficient energy management system that reduces your electricity bills. The hot tub uses a full-foam insulation system and a thick energy-saving spa cover designed to save money on the operation of the spa.

Alternative Hot Tub
American Spas Hot Tub AM-630LS 5-Person 30-Jet Lounger Spa
If you are looking for a slightly more spacious Hot Tub with a lot more jets for your message therapy then go for the American Spas Hot Tub AM-630LS 5-Person 30-Jet Lounger Spa. The hot tub comes with one exclusive 240v 5.0 BHP pump that provides power to the 30 stainless steel massage therapy jets that offer a unique therapy experience in each seat. Much better than the Lifesmart Rock Solid Simplicity Plug and Play 4 Person Spa.
The American Spas’s 5.5kW heavy duty Titanium heater heats up the water much faster. It’s a 5 person hot tub. Read our full review here.
