At a Glance
Intex have produced a really affordable four person portable hot tub. The PureSpa Bubble Massage Spa has many of the same features of the more expensive models in the range, with the same high powered bubble jet count, pump and heater capacity. The only missing features are the four massage jets of the more expensive units.
It still allows you to pamper yourself in relaxing, bubbling heated water but on a real budget.
It has a built-in hard water treatment system that helps to make the water gentler on skin for a more soothing spa experience. The Fiber-Tech Construction and the puncture-resistant laminated material used in the construction is similar to all the models in the range.
The Intex PureSpa Bubble Massage Spa provides seating for up to four people. An insulated cover with child proof fastening is included. An aid when heating the spa to minimise heat loss, but with a safety feature to keep the little ones out.

Formally known as “The Wet Set” the Intex spa division is part of the larger the Intex Recreation Corp The distribution centres. are headquartered in Long Beach California. From where the company distributes airbeds, above ground pools, spas, toys and furniture.
This is a round four seater tub holding 210 gallons of water when 80% full. Overall diameter is 77 inches giving an interior diameter of 58 inches.The PureSpa Bubble is a pretty standard 28 inches deep.
The hot tubs Fiber-Tech construction reinforces the carcass with laminated PVC layers of fibre materials. This makes the spa much more durable, the manufacturer boasts it to be rigid enough to support the weight of an adult sitting. Depends on the size of the adult, we think! The a foil lined fitted top cover can be secured to the tub when it’s going through the heat up phase or when not in use. What we do like are the child safety locks built into the securing straps.
The digital control panel is housed above the combination pump and heater unit. That puts it at a convenient height to adjust from inside the spa.
The built in water softener is a really neat feature it’s not only better for the skin but also helps to extend the life of the heater and pump.
Heating is fundamental, and the PureSpa Bubble Massage Spa is fitted with a 1,300 Watt unit. Given an ambient temperature of 20º this should be able to raise the tub water temperature at 1-2º/hour.
The generous power cable is fitted with a circuit interrupt plug. We always recommend not using extension cords. The spa has a 5mm base sheet to help thermal insulation.
What users are saying about the PureSpa Bubble Massage Hot Tub
“The construction seems great, it is very heavy-duty and well made. The walls are quite rigid and do support the weight of the users easily.” Verified User.
“It’s been one month since I posted my initial below review and I’m still loving this hot tub! I probably use it about 3 – 4 times per week and it has even inspired me to update my back patio! “…. Sunnie
“The heater really is undersized/underpowered. The manual states it can heat the tub at 2 degrees per hour, which is exactly what mine does. That means to heat its water from 80 to 104, it takes 12 hours”…. Mike

What we like
This is perfect for a family fun day or for mum and dad to relax together in a luxurious warm bubbling spa. The end of a perfect summer day.
A good hot tub and a great price. This spa brings to you what ever you want it to. Howls of laughter and fun from the children, or a romantic candle light evening with your partner. If you are looking for a more therapeutic hot tub though, then this does not include the four massage jets that you might be looking for. The more expensive models do have them But hey, they are often twice the price.
- Ease of set up
- Good quality materials
- No Massage jets
- Customer Service sometimes poor
- Heater under powered
