Before you plan on purchasing a best inflatable hot tub make sure to research a bit, you may come across some technical difficulties.

In an inflatable hot tub, there are many parts that need to be put together correctly, so there will not be any problem with it.Also, you may need the help to set up an inflatable hot tub, the whole box or carry bag that comes with it can be quite heavy, so it will be best not to try and take it all by yourself.
It's good to have a friend or family member help you with the setup because it can get frustrating sometimes with all those parts, and its most probably your first time setting up an inflatable hot tub. Before you start putting everything together, make sure to consult the DVD or User's Manual, you will always find something you need to know, and they include all sorts of tips and safety warnings.
If you plan to set up your newly inflatable hot tub indoors, there are a few things you must be aware of. First, consult with the other members of your family, to make sure they agree with having the hot tub being in the garage or basement or an empty room.
Then, make sure the floor where you want to set up the hot tub is not slippery when wet as this can be very dangerous because there will be water around the hot tub no matter how careful you are (every time someone gets in and out and also inflatable hot tubs are known to leak water as the materials they are made of do not last forever).
One other thing that you may want to add to cart when purchasing an inflatable hot tub is a Dehumidifier; you will be delighted you bought that as the key to mold control is moisture control. Also, make sure to use the cover that comes with it, that will also help prevent an increased amount of moisture in the air.
You also need to be aware of how strong your floor is to weight, a filled up inflatable hot tub can support over 200 gallons of water and water is very heavy. You can consult the house project papers, and if it's not there, an engineer or architect should be able to give you an answer.
If you plan to set up your inflatable hot tub outdoors, there are a few things you need to know as well. Outdoors you have all the room you need to place your new hot tub, but you might want to be careful where you place it.
For the good of the structural integrity of your inflatable hot tub, it's good to have it placed on a straight leveled floor.
Having it placed on the grass might seem to be a good idea, but it may not be good for the inflatable hot tub as the materials they use to make these is not going to last for ever, and things like dirt and insects will shorten its life.
Most people set it up on the deck, and that's the best place to have it, it's a straight leveled floor, and it's safer for the users.
There is just one thing that you must know and you will most probably find this in the User's Manual under warnings: most decks are made from wood and depending on how large the capacity of water you inflatable hot tub can hold it may be more than a wooden deck can hold, resulting in a disaster for both the hot tub and the deck.
If you place it outside make sure the water is always fresh also to keep your hot tub clean you may use hot tub vacuum. Check the filters periodically, leave the chemical dispenser when you are not using it and put the cover that comes with it on. Before you set it up to you also need to make sure there is not a tree or any other sources of unwanted debris that might get into the water.
In conclusion, I would like to say that an inflatable hot tub is fun and relaxing and it's good for the whole family, with a much better price than a professional one. Before you purchase one make sure you have a place to set it up, make sure you will be able to do it and last but not least make sure that you will have time for maintenance.
