Inflatable Hot Tubs
It is the type of tub that is usually made up of PVC or vinyl, and these tubs need to be inflated before use. In other words, these tubs are also known as portable hot tubs because they can be carried to any place you want to, with complete ease.
Using Inflatable Hot Tubs In Winter Cold
- The first thing you need to know about these hot tubs is that they usually come with a separation from the ground which also serves as a thermal barrier between the ground and the spa. This thermal barrier works fine when the temperature is somewhat around 40 F, but if it’s winter cold then this barrier won’t work for you, and you will have to beef it up.
- The next step is to make a foam board insulation base all by yourself but here you have to be a bit careful, and you have to make sure that the foam that you are about to cut is equal to the size of your spa or even just a little bigger piece will do the job too. Also, make sure that you are cutting two sheets for the base and the size of these sheets will depend upon the size of your spa, once you are done with all the cutting, you then have to put the insulations together, using duck tape.
- Now empty the tub and make sure there is no water inside and then slip the foam you made under the tub as this is going to be one solid thermal barrier that will keep your tub and the water warm even when it is chilling cold outside.
- Now take the Eco tank and attach pumps and hoses with it, once done, you then have to be carefree about the tub getting all warmed up because Eco tank will do it all for you.
- Lastly, you need to connect the pump with an adapter and then make sure that you have configured the AC power adapter.
This is how you can use an inflatable hot tub in cold weather so follow the tips and the process, and we assure you that you will be able to make a hot tub work for you even when everything is freezing outside.
