Why you should choose RotoSpa hot tub over inflatable spas

image 18

Imagine sinking into a warm, bubbling oasis of relaxation after a long, tiring day. Hot tubs have become a sought-after luxury for many homeowners, offering a perfect escape from the stresses of daily life. 

However, with the rise in popularity of inflatable spas, it’s essential to understand the key differences between these temporary solutions and the superior quality of RotoSpa hot tubs.

Discover compelling reasons why RotoSpa hot tubs are a better investment than inflatable spas. From our durable construction and energy efficiency to advanced hydrotherapy features and ease of maintenance, RotoSpa hot tubs provide a long-lasting and luxurious hot tub experience that inflatable spas simply cannot match.


  • RotoSpa hot tubs feature rotomolded polyethylene shells and steel frames for unmatched durability. 
  • Thick foam insulation locks in heat, reducing energy costs over inflatable spas. 
  • Advanced hydrotherapy jets and ergonomic seating provide a superior massage experience. 
  • Easy maintenance and high-quality filtration extend the lifespan of RotoSpa hot tubs.

Construction and durability

When it comes to hot tubs, durability is a crucial factor that should not be overlooked. RotoSpa hot tubs are constructed with high-quality, rotomoulded polyethylene shells which eliminates the need for frames like timber or metal. This robust construction ensures that your RotoSpa hot tub can withstand harsh weather conditions and outdoor elements, guaranteeing years of reliable performance.

In contrast, inflatable spas are made of less durable materials, typically soft, inflatable vinyl or PVC. While these materials may be lightweight and portable, they are more susceptible to punctures, leaks, and environmental damage, potentially leading to costly repairs or replacements.

Energy efficiency and insulation

One of the standout features of RotoSpa hot tubs is our superior insulation. Thick foam insulation surrounds the shell, effectively locking in heat and reducing energy consumption. This energy-efficient design not only ensures a consistently warm and comfortable soaking experience but also translates into significant savings on your energy bills over time.

Inflatable spas, on the other hand, have minimal insulation, allowing heat to escape quickly. This results in the need for frequent reheating, which can drive up energy costs and make inflatable spas less eco-friendly in the long run.

Hydrotherapy and massage systems of RotoSpa hot tub versus inflatable spa

RotoSpa hot tubs are designed with advanced hydrotherapy features in mind. High-powered jets provide targeted massage capabilities, while adjustable settings allow you to personalise your experience. Ergonomic seating designs ensure optimal comfort, allowing you to relax and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy fully.

In comparison, inflatable spas often have limited massage capabilities, with fewer jets and less powerful water circulation. Additionally, their seating options may be less comfortable and less conducive to a truly rejuvenating hydrotherapy experience. 

Maintenance, longevity, and RotoSpa’s trade-in offer

Maintaining a hot tub is essential for ensuring its longevity and your enjoyment. RotoSpa hot tubs are designed with easy maintenance in mind, featuring high-quality filtration systems and simple water chemistry management. With proper care, these hot tubs can last for many years, making them a worthwhile investment.

Inflatable spas, however, require more frequent maintenance. Their filters need to be replaced more often, and maintaining proper water chemistry can be a challenge. Additionally, due to their less durable construction, inflatable spas generally have a shorter lifespan compared to RotoSpa hot tubs.

Meanwhile, if you currently own an inflatable hot tub and are looking to upgrade to a more durable and efficient model, we offer an attractive trade-in deal. With the RotoSpa trade-in offer, you can trade in any inflatable hot tub, regardless of its condition or original price, for a new RotoSpa and save £500. This offer allows you to upgrade to RotoSpa’s Orbis or Quatro models, which are identical in size to most inflatable spas but offer up to 60% less daily running costs.

Installation and portability

While RotoSpa hot tubs are semi-permanent installations, requiring placement on a level, solid surface and proper electrical and plumbing connections, their durability and long-term value make it a worthwhile investment for those seeking a permanent hot tub solution.

Inflatable spas, on the other hand, are highly portable. They can be easily set up and moved around, making them a convenient option for those who want a temporary or occasional hot tub experience. However, this portability often comes at the cost of durability, energy efficiency, and advanced hydrotherapy features.

Choose the right choice with RotoSpa

In the pursuit of a truly luxurious and long-lasting hot tub experience, RotoSpa hot tubs emerge as the superior choice over inflatable spas. Our durable construction, energy efficiency, advanced hydrotherapy systems, easy maintenance, and extended lifespan make us a worthwhile investment for those seeking a permanent and high-quality hot tub solution.
