What is a portable spa? The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) defines a portable (self-contained) spa as “a factory-built spa in which all control, water heating and water circulation equipment is an integral part of the product”.


Portable Spa Benefits

We all know that relaxing in a hot tub or spa provides many benefits for the mind and body. A spa experience can reduce stress, relieve muscle tension, soothe sore joints and much more. Many people assume that portable spas require a big investment in time and money, when in fact those are some of the advantages of the product!

Affordable—With so many options available, there is something for your needs and budget.

Hassle free installation—Bring it home in a truck or trailer, and plug into a regular wall outlet.  

Ease of use—Fill with water, turn the heater on and climb on in!

Portable—Easily relocated if you move, or want to change where spa is set up.

Portable Spa Maintenance & Installation

As with any type of spa, the portable spa needs to be properly installed and maintained to meet your expectations and provide continued problem free usage. Balancing, sanitizing and filtering the water are just a few steps to spa maintenance. Luckily, it’s easy to keep your portable spa clean!

There are several sanitizer options for a portable spa. We suggest taking a sample of water to your spa dealer to have them determine which chemicals you need. It is also advisable to keep an extra filter cartridge on hand. While you are cleaning one, the other can be in the spa ready for use.
