The first and foremost point to look at when buying a portable spa is the number of people it can happily accommodate.
And the Intex 77in Pure Spa can easily seat 4 people at a time. The tub holds 210 gallons of water and is very spacious and comfortable for 4. One more thing is that the tub fills up fast since it as a flow rate of 460 gallons of water per hours. In other words, you will be dipping and soaking in warm water in under 30 minutes.
Heating is what makes transforms a bath tub to a spa tub. If your spa tub doesn’t heat well enough, then we say chuck it out already!
But the Intex 77in Pure Spa however, isn’t going to disappoint you. In fact, it has a good temperature range from 68°F to 104°F which lets you enjoy a wide variety of water temperatures throughout the different seasons of the year. Keep in mind however; that it takes a while to bring the water up to the temperature of your liking. The Intex 77in Pure Spa heats up in increments of 2-3°F by the hour.
Jets are those ball like parts fit into the body of the spa tub. This serve to release air to the water which serves to simulate being massaged by the air.
And, the Intex 77in Pure Spa includes a whopping 120 count of bubble jets, and we are not at all mad about that.
The Intex 77in Pure Spa also includes a very easy to use and intuitive control panel that lets you put settings and make adjustments to just about anything.
You can set temperatures, timer, control bubble jets, and so on. One neat touch to the control panel is that it comes with a water protective clear cover to shield it from any splashes, rainwater, and so on.
Material and construction
It is very important to get a portable spa that promises durability and longevity since these things have a tendency to rip and leak a lot.
Intex 77in Pure Spa is made from a patented and coveted FiberTech technology with uses a 3-ply material of laminated PVC on the side and mesh core inside to ensure safety from any punctures or leaks. One problem that almost every portable spa users complain of is not being able to sit on the side. However, the construction of the Intex 77in Pure Spa is in fact so strong that you could easily sit on the sides of the tub without it bending or ripping.
Hard water could really do some damage on your skin and fabric in the long term if it is not taken care of.

So far, we have mixed feelings about the Intex 77in Pure Spa. We liked pretty much everything about it, however, the frequent complains of leaks and deflations are a little worrisome. Although, we must point out that this problem is incredibly common is portable spas and we can’t hold it against it for that reason. To be honest, we actually do like it enough to recommend it regardless of the problem. It’s a safe purchase for the price but we wouldn’t keep our hope too high.
