Setting up an Inflatable Spa at Home: Quick How-To’s

If this is the first time you have bought and owned an inflatable spa, you probably are a little anxious about setting it up in your home. Truth is, you can set up your spa anywhere as long as it is on a hard, flat surface. You can place it indoors or outdoors – really up to you. The key is to learn the proper how-to’s of setting it up. So, we’ve listed these instructions for you and hope it helps.

  1. Choose a good spot – Like we said, you can place your inflatable spa indoors or outdoors as long as it is on a hard, flat surface that has easy access to a drain and water supply. This isn’t much of an issue if you will set up your spa in your backyard, but it is a different deal when you want to use your spa indoors. The best room should be one with proper ventilation, proper drainage, near a water source and a place where you wouldn’t mind getting the floor wet.
  2. Study the User’s Manual – Do not skip reading the user’s manual. While it is true that many of the inflatable spas sold today are designed to be very easy to use, you may miss a few steps in setting up the spa. The user’s manual also has information on accessories that come with the inflatable spa and where it goes and how it should be installed.
  3. Use the pump provided to inflate the tub – After taking the inflatable spa out of its box, lay it out where you want to set it up, and fasten the inflation valve to the liner. Make sure that it is fastened firmly so no air will escape on the sides. Afterwards, you can start inflating the tub. Switch on the pump and make sure to check that all parts of the spa are being inflated equally.
  4. Fill the spa with water and start heating – The next step is to start filling up the spa with water. Do not fill it up to the brim unless you want to mop up water on your floor every single time you get in or out of the tub. Then, you can start heating the water to your desired temperature. All spas have a recommended max temp of 104°C. You can use the spa cover while the water is being heated, to help speed up the process.
