These Jacuzzi’s are extremely popular as they come in a wide variety of sizes and types and require minimal installation. There are a few types of portable Jacuzzi available with varying features so it may take a while to find the perfect one for you.

All of the portable Jacuzzi’s mentioned in this guide are available to buy and bid on in the Home & Garden: Outdoor Living section on eBay.

What to Consider when Buying a Portable Jacuzzi Spa on eBay

When Choosing a Portable Jacuzzi there are a few factors you need to take into consideration before searching the Outdoor Living section on eBay. Some of the key considerations are:


Be sure to find out how many people the portable Jacuzzi is meant to hold. Normally, portable Jacuzzi’s are smaller than their permanent counterparts. The majority of portable Jacuzzis are designed for two people; however there are some available that can accommodate six people. Many come with raised seats so children can enjoy the hot tub as well without lowering the amount of water. Before buying, measure the area in which you want the Jacuzzi to be and correlate this with the specifications on the eBay listing. It is also important to consider how much room people will have to get in and out of the Jacuzzi as well.

Safety Features

Some portable Jacuzzis will come with special safety features such as no-skid seating and flooring which allow the user to easily grip to the floor without slipping and also avoid slipping while sitting in the seat. There are also safety steps available to help with getting in and out of the Jacuzzi. All portable Jacuzzis will have a maximum heat so there is no chance or burning your skin with hot water. Most Jacuzzi’s will come with a filtration system as well to keep the water as clean as possible during and after use.

Jacuzzi Jets

The number of jets needed is completely down to personal preference and can range from one jet to four or five jets. The number of jets will usually be in line with the size of the Jacuzzi and how many people the tub is designed to hold. Some Jacuzzis will allow you to vary the pressure of the jets.

Jacuzzi Cover

Most portable Jacuzzi’s will come with a cover, but some will not so it is important to check this before buying. It is definitely a wise idea to have a cover for the tub as it will keep a whole manner of things out of it whilst not being used like bugs and debris as well as stopping children from jumping in when they please. The cover stops debris, therefore saving the filtration system from breaking when it can be avoided.

Cleaning of the Jacuzzi

Some Jacuzzi’s come with filtration systems which will mean minimum cleaning but it is important to determine what needs to be done to clean the tub before buying. Every portable Jacuzzi will need to be scrubbed and cleaned sometimes. It is a good idea to ask the seller about the cleaning of the product and what cleaning products should be used as this can vary from Jacuzzi to Jacuzzi.

Portable Jacuzzi Materials

Most portable Jacuzzis are inflatable and made of thick vinyl or something very similar. Because of the nature of vinyl; portable Jacuzzis cannot hold foam based insulation, which can help to regulate the temperature. However, you will still get a decent temperature without this.

Portable Jacuzzi Features

Some of the pricier Jacuzzis will have digital controls to control the speed, pressure and heat of the jets and water. However these can be more expensive to fix should anything go wrong with them so if you wish to avoid costly repairs it might be worth finding out where to get replacement models to bring the cost down. Most portable Jacuzzi’s will have a small panel where the controls are situated and some will have manual dials so if the digital controls are hard to use or aren’t working, you have a backup plan.


Portable Jacuzzi’s are meant for smaller budgets, so it is possible to find a Jacuzzi that suits your needs at an affordable price. It is a good idea to set a budget of how much you are willing to spend on the portable Jacuzzi and take accessories like covers and filtering systems and shipping costs into consideration before buying. It is possible to get a great deal buy bidding on portable Jacuzzi’s if you look hard enough and keep a keen eye on interesting listings.
