Women relaxing in a softub spa on the deck

When people see the huge benefits a Softub spa offers, one of the first questions they ask is how long does it last?

There has to be some drawback to a hot tub that’s efficient, high-performance, and portable right?

The answer is, Softub spas are built to last, and you might be surprised at just how long they’ll maintain their high-level performance. 

What is a Softub Spa?

Let’s start with the most basic question, what is a Softub spa?

A Softub spa is a high-performance, portable hot tub made from a lightweight material called Polybond Foam. This modern material gives Softub spas some considerable benefits, but perhaps the most useful is that it can be moved around. 

You can put your Softub spa in the front yard in the morning and move it to the backyard to chase the sun in the evening. It can easily fit on a small truck and come with you to your summer home, or it can be placed on the deck of a yacht.

The Softub spa gives you flexibility, but at the same time, it doesn’t compromise on performance. It’s built to last and features powerful, industry-leading jets. 

How Long Does a Softub Spa Last?

When you invest money in a spa, one of the first things you want to know is how long it's going to last you. Everyone would love to be able to enjoy the tranquility of their own personal hot tub, but there’s no point if it’s going to constantly break down and quickly become obsolete. 

This is where Softub spas can be relied upon because they’re regularly seen in perfect working order 20+ years after purchase

All Softub parts are manufactured with precision in our US factories, and we use innovative materials to maximize the longevity of our products. 

A great example of this is our marine grade upholstery that not only offers a luxury finish but is also built to withstand anything you can throw at it. Nobody wants to get into a tired-looking hot tub, which is why Softub Spas are designed to give you maximum performance over a long lifespan. 

Benefits of Softub Spas vs Hot Tubs

We touched on one of the key benefits of Softub spas vs hot tubs already, but that’s just the start. 

Another huge benefit of Softub spas is their efficiency. They’re designed to maintain top-level performance while consuming less electricity

To heat a Softub in a climate with an average temperature of 65 degrees:

  • Uses around 4 kW hours of electricity per day 
  • Costs on average $9.60 per month

An equivalent hot tub will cost approximately $40-75 a month; that’s a huge saving. 

The other thing you need to remember is that your Softub spa can simply be rolled into place and plug into a regular household electrical supply. Hot tubs often have to be moved into place using a crane and require a specialist electrical output.

All of this means that your Softub spa comes with much lower start-up costs and is more economical to run. 

What About Performance?

So, a Softub spa can last 20+ years, comes at a favorable price compared to a traditional hot tub, has lower installation costs, and costs less to run, what’s the catch?

You might think it’s performance, but this isn’t the case

All Softub spas come with strategically placed, interchangeable hydro-jets that provide powerful hydrotherapy. This ensures years of blissful time spent in your new spa, and maximizes the health benefits of a long soak in the hot water. 

A Softub is always hot and ready to use 24 hours a day, so when you feel the need, it’s always waiting for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy. 

Conclusion: How Long Do Softub Spas Last

Softubs are manufactured to the highest standards and use premium materials to maximize lifespan. This means it’s not unusual to see Softubs spas still in operation 20+ years after they were purchased. 

Over those twenty years, you can expect top-quality performance, low running costs, easy maintenance, and even portability. If you move house, then it’s easy to take the Softub with you, so you’re much more likely to benefit from the full life cycle of your product. 

It’s time to ensure the ultimate luxury experience for the next 20 years!
