Light, easy to use, and easy to Install. Softub is the most portable hot tub in the world! You are never limited to one location! Using your Softub is as simple as 1, 2, 3:

1. Roll

Roll your spa into position. Your Softub can be rolled through any standard door or yard gate with ease. With the tub weighing less than 75lbs, anyone can move the tub from place to place. If you choose to have your Softub outside during the summer and inside during the winter, when it comes time to move it, just empty and roll it inside or out.


2. Connect

Once you place your Softub where you want it, simply connect the Hydromate with just a few turns of a screwdriver. It doesn’t take a professional electrician or spa technician to install your Softub, so there is no added cost for installation. You also don’t need any special tools. If you have a screwdriver, you can install your Softub.


3. Fill

Fill with water and connect your Softub to any standard 120v, 15-amp outlet. Most hot tubs take a special 220v outlet installed and require a professional electrician for installation; not Softub. Softubs can be plugged into any standard outlet. And with Softub’s Smartchip, Softub hot tubs maintain the set temperature on the control panel by turning the pump on and off automatically. The built in safety mechanism prevents the tub from overheating if there’s a problem with the temperature sensors as well as prevents the pump from turning on if the temperature is too high. The Smartchip also prevents the pump from turning on if the voltage is too low and could damage the pump.



Arthritis affects over 40 million people and causes pain, general stiffness, and for some, swelling and inflammation of the joints. Treatment by a physician may focus on controlling pain, minimizing degeneration or optimizing a treatment plan for maximum benefits. Effective treatment often combines medicine with exercise and relaxation techniques that can be achieved through hydrotherapy in a Softub spa.



Many people develop Type 2 diabetes, also referred to as Adult Onset Diabetes. Watching our weight and moderate exercise is an essential part of managing Type 2 diabetes. There are many ways that managing diabetes can be improved through hydrotherapy in a Softub spa.



Stress is not necessarily good or bad. Some amount of stress is a natural part of life and our bodies are equipped to deal with it. When a situation we perceive as stressful arises, our bodies release hormones such as adrenaline, that increase our heart rate and metabolism, raise blood sugar levels, and tense our muscles.
