Have you ever wished you could just go out and get a hot tub? No planning the logistics. No waiting for an installation. You just want to be able to select your hot tub, bring it home, plug it in, and start relaxing. The good news is that plug-n-play hot tubs are exactly like this. So, if you’ve been curious what it means to be a “plug-n-play” hot tub, here are more details on these incredibly convenient spas.

Eliminate the Wait

Waiting for a hot tub installation can be an exercise in patience. All you can do is dream about melting into that soothing water and tuning out for a while. With a plug-n-play hot tub, you don’t have the wait time between ordering and installation. Though you may have to wait for your specific spa to come in.

No Electrical Upgrade

Plug-n-play hot tubs get their name from the fact that they don’t need any special electrical hook-up. Traditional hot tubs require a dedicated 220-240V outlet. This means that a certified electrician must be called in to ensure that the electrical work is done correctly. That added cost has to be tacked on to the overall expense of putting in a hot tub.

On the other hand, plug-n-play hot tubs simply plug into a standard 110V outlet. There is no upgrade required and no waiting.


The price to purchase a plug-n-play hot tub is generally less expensive than buying a traditional hot tub. There are a wide variety of different plug-n-play spas on the market and they offer an array of features. That said if you decide to go with a plug-n-play hot tub, be sure you’re going with a high-quality, trusted brand.

Due to the fact that there is no professional hook-up involved, the cost to install a plug-n-play hot tub is significantly lower than a traditional spa. 

Size Variety

Those short on yard space have a good chance of finding a plug-n-play hot tub to suit their needs. These kinds of spas often come in a wide variety of sizes, with some built for just two adults, others built for hosting a hot tub party, and everything in between. 


If you’ve been hesitating to purchase a hot tub because you’re not sure how long you’ll be staying at your current address, a plug-n-play spa is the perfect solution. After all, no one wants to spend money on a hot tub installation, only to move a short time later and leave the new spa behind. With a plug-n-play model, you just unplug the unit and take it along with you. These kinds of hot tubs are generally lightweight enough that they can be moved by a couple of adults 

Even if you’re not planning on changing residences, you may want to redesign your yard space over time. A plug-n-play hot tub can be shifted around to any part of the yard to suit changing needs.
