When it comes to relaxing in a hot tub – everybody loves it. But does it really mean that I have to spend thousands of dollars on a built-in hot tub and hundreds on installation? Definitely no!
These are the best cheap inflatable hot tubs in the UK according to our research. They won’t cost you more than a few hundred and will provide endless fun and relaxation.
What are their drawbacks?
Manufacturers had to save the money somewhere – in most cases, it’s all about the premium features. Cheap hot tubs will miss premium like LED lights or saltwater system. While those features are cool, you might save a good amount of money by going with a more affordable option.

What are the advantages of buying a cheaper hot tub?
Imagine if you decide to get a built-in hot tub. It will cost you thousands of dollars in installation costs + costs of plumbing and electrical work. Built-in hot tub price can easily get to 10,000$. Then there are standalone acrylic hot tubs, these are definitely more affordable than built-in, but they still cost thousands.
What if you can get all this relaxation in a few hundred?
That’s what cheap inflatable hot tubs are for. In a few hundred bucks, you get a heater unit and an inflatable spa (Which is much more rigid than you would expect from an inflatable. You can easily sit on the walls and it will support your weight easily without deforming). And what’s the most awesome part? You don’t need a plumber or an electrician. You can set it up yourself easily! These hot tubs run from an ordinary 110v socket and are filled using a water hose. It can’t get easier than this!
Costs of repair are MUCH smaller
Repair costs are another part where cheap hot tubs win. You can easily get an inflatable hot tub for 350$, that might not be enough to cover a one repair of a built-in spa.
If you are careful about inflatable hot tubs, they will serve you for a long time. Of course, don’t bring a sharp object with you into the hot tub. I don’t know of anyone going into a hot tub with a knife anyway :).
What if a leak occurs? Well, just patch it up! Take a look at our leak repair guide.
What about features?
You would be amazed how luxurious these blow-up hot tubs are.
The two main drawbacks are the size and lack of water jets on cheap inflatable hot tubs.
While most of them have air jets (which actually some people prefer), some of them have real water jets just like their expensive built-in counterparts.
The biggest cheap inflatable hot tubs are for six people at most. And that’s with a lot of leg touching.
