This tub is made of a very thick and smooth material, and its large diameter allows 6 people to sit in it comfortably. The diameter of the pool is 73 inches.

This pool is unique, because all the machinery of the pump and filter are stored inside the tub’s body. Therefore it looks much better because it does not have any protruding parts.

The filter of this pool is easily replaceable, and the pool is shipped with an extra cartridge. The filter makes the water cleaner and more pleasurable for the skin.

The maximum temperature is 104 degrees. The heat loss is minimized by the pool cover.

The bubble jets are powerful, but they do not cool the water too much during use, so it always stays at the required temperature.

The comfortable grab handles allow you to move the large pool around, and the small weight – only 58 pounds – allows you to carry it around easily.

Pros:

  • The increased diameter allows this pool to hold 6 adult people
  • The bubble jets do not cool the water quickly, and it always stays at the needed temperature
  • The pump motor and filters are all inside the tub’s body

  • Hard to heat up when it is cold outside – uses more electricity and heats slower
