Above Ground Hot Tub

When you're considering a hot tub you’ll reach a point where you likely need to decide between an in-ground model or a self-contained above-ground hot tub. 

While the decision ultimately depends on your personal preference, there's no denying there are a few advantages to above-ground hot tubs – they are easier to install, more functional, more portable, and more cost-effective.

Read on below to discover how Hot Spring's portable, self-contained above-ground hot tubs compare to in-ground models, or reach out to us for assistance.

Why Buy a Hot Spring Hot Tub

You’re keen for a toasty, restorative, luxurious oasis in your Canberra backyard. But why choose a Hot Spring? Backed by the world’s largest spa manufacturer, Watkins Wellness, Hot Spring hot tubs are the culmination of over four decades of innovation. Our spas deliver the level of quality our Canberra customers expect, and are built to handle local conditions. Add in the knowledge and experience of our Canberra team, and there’s simply no better addition to your backyard. Here’s what to consider when choosing your Hot Spring:

Think about how many people you might want to host at once, and how much room you have in your backyard.

The best spot in your backyard is one that features enough space, stable foundations, and the ability to fill, drain and power the hot tub.

Easy Installation

In-ground pools come with a more complicated installation process. They require planning, excavation, installation and potentially landscaping too. In contrast, many Hot Spring portable hot tubs can be delivered, placed, powered, filled and ready for use in a matter of hours. 

Instead of waiting weeks for an in-ground hot tub, why not enjoy your first relaxing soak on the same day as delivery? Our professional delivery team can handle installation for you, making it as easy for you as possible.

Portable and Convenient

Hot Spring hot tubs are entirely self-contained and this makes them completely portable. All you need to do in most cases is drain out the water, unplug the power, and you're ready to relocate your hot tub anywhere within your yard. 

And, if you ever move, you can freely take your hot tub with you. This means renters can enjoy the pleasures of a spa pool while knowing they can take their investment along when they relocate.

Fantastic Features

Because Hot Spring creates a range of existing units to choose from, we’re able to invest significantly into the research and development behind our products. In-ground pools are often one off constructions, and this means they’re less likely to be backed up by the same innovations we can offer. 

For example, our hot tubs typically feature automated water care, market-leading jets, touchscreens, optional lighting and water features, and energy-efficient insulation.

Simple Maintenance

Maintaining your above-ground Hot Spring hot tub is a breeze. The surfaces are easy to clean, and all filters and parts are readily accessible. In fact, we can guarantee spare parts for any spa created in the last 20 years. Finally, our water care systems can largely manage themselves, giving you more time to relax. You’ll be hard-pressed to find the same lineup of attractive features in an in-ground hot tub.

Installation made easy: place, fill, power

Why wait weeks or months to enjoy the very first soak in your new hot tub? Unlike in-ground hot tubs, which have to be custom-built, Hot Spring hot tubs are self-contained, fully portable, above ground units. This makes delivery and installation super simple: you simply position the hot tub where you want it, then fill it up, connect it to a power source and wait for it to warm! At Hot Spring we bring the luxury of a hot tub to your Canberra backyard, and we don't make you wait for it.

Are hot tubs good for your health?

Sure, you could drive three hours to the thermal pools at Yarrangobilly Caves. Or you could place the same health and wellness benefits a few steps from your back door, in your own Hot Spring hot tub.
