When companies like Bestway and Coleman collaborate it’s hardly surprising that the Coleman Saluspa Inflatable Hot Tub is such a benchmark of quality and durability.

The original ColemanTub has been such a success story that a number of other tubs have been added to the Coleman range.

They’re all smaller capacity tubs, so buyers can choose a tub with the same pedigree as the familiar classic Coleman green and white original but to suit their outdoor space and color preference.

There’s even an elegant square tub in the range if you’re looking for that kind of visual impact.

We’ve reviewed the whole Coleman Saluspa Hot Tub Range with a guide to all the on board features.

There’s a lot to go through so let’s dive straight in…..

Coleman Saluspa Inflatable Hot Tub Range

Everything You Need To Know

Coleman Saluspa Construction

All the tubs are built around an I-Beam chassis, that’s what makes the tub walls so strong and rigid.

Detail of the Coleman Saluspa Classic Green Hot Tub

The pleats you notice around the hot tub exterior look great, but actually that’s where the internal I-Beam has been attached.

Without this clever internal architecture you’d just have a floppy plaything to take to the beach or float in your pool.

Of course the tub fabric is no ordinary fabric either, it’s got to be tough enough to withstand daily use and sometimes daily abuse. It’s got to be puncture resistant, UV resistant and be able to spring back to life from a long winters storage.

The Coleman Saluspa range uses a triple ply laminate PVC system, it’s the trademarked Bestway TriTech fabric that’s been refined and improved over many years.

Even the best inflatable tubs aren’t indestructible but it would take a pretty sustained attack to damage the fabric.

Coleman Saluspa tritech material

The weather elements are the type of sustained attack that can speed the deterioration of the Saluspa tub fabric.

It’s UV resistant, but prolonged exposure to very hot sun will surely shorten the life of the fabric. Ideally the tub should be protected during the mid summer months. Placing it under a gazebo not only looks great it will add years to the hot tubs life.

Also the PVC fabric becomes brittle in cold temperatures, that’s why inflatable hot tub manufacturers don’t recommend using them below 40ºF.

Pump Heater and Blower

The beating heart of your Coleman Saluspa inflatable hot tub. 

The pump, heater and blower are what you’re actually buying. If these key components are mismatched or underpowered then no matter how great the tub looks it’s going to be a disappointment to use.

Coleman Saluspa Pump Tower

Now the tub with the largest water volume in the range is the Coleman Saluspa Classic Green, it holds 254 gallons, and is America’s best selling inflatable hot tub.

The rest of the range has the same excellent pump, heater and blower setup as the Classic Green Tub.

That means all the smaller down range tubs have even better performance. The water heats a little faster, and the pump circulates a complete water volume faster too. That’s great for faster chemical treatment and filtration times.

Control Panel

The Coleman Saluspa range control panel is easy enough to navigate around.

It’s pretty intuitive too as all the blister buttons have icons to identify their function.

Most buttons are simply on/off or hold down, so no degree in computer science required here. Setting up the timer does take a little more effort but is still super simple because the timer is super simple with just a few options.

There’s really just four things to know about a Saluspa filter.

They’re easy to install, cheap to buy, last a long time and all the tubs in the Coleman Saluspa Hot Tub range use the same model.

Simple enough !!

The hot tub filter is a fundamental in keeping the tub water crystal clear and safe for the bathers. It’s really the first line of defence.

There’s nothing technical to know here, the clue is in the name. They simply filter out debris and contaminants in the tub water. oils, lotions, hair, leaves, dust, pollen and just about any undesirable thing suspended in the water.

Coleman Hot Tub Filter Case

The Saluspa filters are made from a tough pleated polyester fiber cloth so don’t need much maintenance, just checking and cleaning every 10 – 14 days. When they start to erode it’s time to change them, typically once a month depending on the tub usage.


All Coleman Saluspa tubs have a start up timer.

Maybe surprisingly it’s quite a new feature because it seems such a fundamental thing. Having your hot tub nice and hot when you want to climb aboard is now possible with this built in function.

Bestway the manufacturer, could have done better when they wrote the software for the timer though. It’s very simple, perhaps too simple.  It allows the owner to program how many hours in advance the hot tub should turn on. It can’t be set up to turn on daily at a preset time which would be optimum for many folks.

However it’s not really a deal breaker, if you want a daily soak then just set it up when you’ve finished bathing for the next day. Simple enough.

It’s a feature many inflatable hot tubs don’t actually have. We’re pleased the Coleman Saluspa hot tub range does. Could it be better? Yes. Would it stop us investing in a Saluspa tub? No.

Chemical Treatment

The whole Coleman Saluspa Inflatable Hot Tub range has the new ChemConnect system fitted.

It’s a replacement for the old style, inefficient chemical floater that’s been used for years. The new ChemConnect system is submerged in the tub interior. Like the tub filters it’s simply screws off and you place the treatment tablets inside.

Saluspa ChemConnect System

Before replacing it back in the tub the owner can set it up the amount of chemicals required to release into the tub.

It’s a great improvement that runs at the same time as the filtration system. Just a word of caution though, be careful with the quantity of tablets you use. It will disperses chemicals faster than a floater, so be sure not to over treat the tub with chemicals.
