After a challenging day, you want to be able to sink into your bubbling Coleman SaluSpa, relax, and unwind. This six-person inflatable hot tub is one of the top-selling inflatable hot tubs for a good reason. These Coleman hot tubs are durable, sturdy, and well-engineered.

If you are not a fan of the color green, the color of these Coleman hot tubs may not be appealing. Nonetheless, we doubt you'll be thinking about the color when your worries are bubbling away, and you're drifting into a calm state. Your friends will have nothing but praises when you're all in this Coleman inflatable hot tub sipping beer and enjoying the heat, bubbles, and other powerful features that this inflatable hot tub has.

a). Size and Capacity

The Coleman hot tubs have an inflated size of 77 inches with an impressive depth of 28 inches. The maximum capacity of these Coleman hot tubs is 6 people. However, if you want to have a comfortably bubbling experience without the feel of other bodies on you, having 3-4 people is the ideal practice.

b). Durable and Innovative Construction

These Coleman hot tubs have sides covered in a durable fabric with three layers and a reinforced polyester mesh center. The fabric on these inflatable hot tubs feels really good on your skin, and you don't have to worry about any accidental bursts because the fabric is puncture-resistant.

The walls of these inflatable hot tubs are made of a series of vertical beams that give them superior structural stability without compromising the surface's comfort. The pockets of air also give these Coleman hot tubs extra strength.

This means that your heart won't skip a beat every time someone sits on the side. Thanks to the 3x fortified Tritech material and sturdy i beam construction, you can comfortably sit on the sides without the Coleman inflatable hot tub bending or crushing. In addition to the cushioned floor, you can lean against the firm wall as you enjoy the relaxing soak.

c). Thermal Insulation

The pockets of air also give these Coleman hot tubs great insulation. It's been proven that trapped air is one of the best sources of thermal insulation. The reason being that the air molecules in the trapped air spread out and make it difficult for heat transfer to take place. This then reduces the chances of heat loss.

Nonetheless, if you want to increase the insulation, you can add extra insulation to the bottom. Although the air-cushioned mat at the bottom provides you with a good surface to sit, it's not thick enough to offer proper insulation.

d). 114 Bubble Jets

These Coleman hot tubs have over a hundred air jets that release soothing bubbles into the water to give you a soothing massage. Think of this Coleman inflatable hot tub as your private massage system. These massage jets are evenly spread out at the bottom of this Coleman SaluSpa hot tub.

Every part you sit on this Coleman SaluSpa's cushioned bottom will allow you to experience the same number of bubbles. The best part about the air jets on these Coleman hot tubs is that they give you a relaxing and light massage instead of being forceful.

Like other inflatable hot tubs, these Coleman hot tubs make noise when you turn on the bubbles. However, even if the bubbling water and the pump are noisy, they're not too noisy. If the noise from your Coleman hot tub becomes unbearable, you can always shut off the bubble using the digital control panel.

e). Set-Up and Maintenance

These Coleman hot tubs are easy to set up and maintain. You don't need any extra tools while setting up your Coleman SaluSpa hot tub. All you have to do is to inflate your Coleman SaluSpa hot tub using the included pump.

The inflatable cover is also easy to set up and comes as an extra safety feature. You can use it to maintain the water temperature of the tub.

Not many inflatable hot tubs have the features that these Coleman hot tubs have at this good price. These Coleman hot tubs are gentle on your skin and maintain a healthy water environment. These Coleman hot tubs keep the water clean thanks to the pool cover and safety lock clips. The reinforced cover, which is also an inflatable cover, ensures that you can come back and still find your tub clean the next day.


  • Affordable
  • Durable and sturdy
  • Innovative construction
  • Easily portable
  • Easy to set up and maintain


  • No in-built seating

Factors to Consider When Choosing the Coleman Inflatable Hot Tub

1. Dimensions and People Capacity

You want to have an incredible experience when you're in you're inflatable hot tubs. This means that you need to know how many adults can comfortably fit in your Coleman hot tub. The number usually written on the manual of inflatable hot tubs is when the people are sitting side by side.

Therefore, you want to ensure that you're getting the right capacity. For the Coleman Saluspa hot tub, the capacity is four people when you want to have a relaxed time without feeling squeezed in. Nonetheless, six people can also comfortably fit in the hot tub if you ever decide to have a party or some friends over.

The outer dimensions affect the capacity, and here's a small guide on how to know how many people can fit in your inflatable hot tubs.

  • 71″-75″ across: 2 people capacity
  • 75″-77″ across: 3-4 people capacity
  • 77″-85″ across: over 4 people capacity

Because our Coleman inflatable hot tub is 77″-77″, it can comfortably fit six people.

2. Running Costs

When purchasing one of these Coleman hot tubs, you need to consider that running and maintaining these hot tubs will cost you. There are water costs, energy costs, and chemical costs.

i. Water Costs

Coleman hot tubs hold lots of water. Even the smaller models you can think of also hold about 200 gallons of water. Therefore, if you want to keep your spa clean and have it filled with water, you need to drain the tub and re-fill it occasionally.

There are ways to save money while using these Coleman hot tubs that will have your whole family enjoying the experience without too many costs. You can opt for other models if you find this too expensive.

However, this Coleman SaluSpa is the perfect size for a patio or yard relaxation time. The pump comes with the purchase, so you don't have to worry about that.

ii. Energy Costs

Because it is a hot tub, you can expect there to be energy costs to keep the temperature of the water warm and the jets working. This model requires heating the water to get the desired temperature. Luckily the pumps come with the purchase of these Coleman hot tubs.

Therefore, as long as you have the money to maintain it and enough room to keep the tub, you can have fun with this model in the evening or any other time. The price of maintaining this brand of the tub is not cheap or costly. It depends on how you use the hot tub and how frequently.

iii. Chemical costs

The price of ensuring that your Coleman hot tubs remain clean and safe is a factor you have to consider. The price of chemicals is affordable, and you can also use filters and filter cartridges to keep the water safe.

You can pay attention to how many chemicals you use to save on costs. You can also read the user manual that comes with this purchase to find out how to go about cleaning and treating your Coleman hot tubs.

3. Location of the Tub

Knowing where you're going to put one of these Coleman hot tubs will allow you to create space for it if you need to. Remember that once you fill up your Coleman SaluSpa hot tub, you won't be able to move it until you drain it.

Therefore, choose a location with enough room to move around as you enter and leave the hot tub. After filling it up, your tub can weigh approximately 2,000-3,000 lbs. Therefore, avoid putting it in places that cannot hold its weight.
