What is a “Plug-N-Play” Hot Tub?

If you’ve considered hot tub ownership but hesitated because of the expense of electricians and plumbers, then reconsider your options! The answer to your dilemma is to purchase a “plug-n-play” hot tub. You may be wondering exactly what a plug-n-play hot tub is and whether or not it would be worth the investment. So, we’re here to answer that question and tell you about some of the benefits of a wonderful plug-n-play spa.

What is a “plug-n-play” hot tub?

A plug-n-play hot tub runs on standard 120v power. That means all you need is your regular 110v outlet and you are good to go. All you have to do is plug your hot tub in, fill it with water, balance your maintenance chemicals, and you are ready to soak! This is one of the main reasons that makes this type of hot tub so attractive. There is no need to hire an electrician to add the expense of a dedicated 240v power source.

You don’t need to be concerned about if a plug-n-play is electrically safe. Most models have a GFCI protector built into the cord. One thing you will want to check is if the cord is a 15- amp or 20-amp cord. 15-amp outlets are the standard ones you find anywhere in your home. A 20-amp outlet/cord will have one of the holes/prongs sideways.

“Plug-N-Play” Benefits

Plug-n-play hot tubs are a great option if you are looking for affordability. Just like their hard-wired counterparts, you can find higher-end models that come with features like LED multicolor lighting, waterfalls, seat positions, and jet types. Seating can range from a 2-person hot tub all the way to 7-person models. Compare features when you go hot tub shopping. Then you will be well informed and ultimately satisfied with your choice.

If you relocate your plug-n-play spa, it’s easier to move with its lighter construction and lack of hard-wiring. You also don’t have to wait long to enjoy your hot tub.  All you need to do is plug your hot tub in and fill with water from a water hose.  Don’t forget to add spa chemicals, and then turn it on and set your temperature.

There are many satisfied plug-n-play hot tub owners because of the wide variety of tubs to choose from. Don’t delay any longer from becoming one of the many happy hot tub owners.
