Review

[M] The TS 8.2 is a repeat Best Buy selection, because it has the best combination of seating versatility, jet power and control panels among portable spas that are in this price range. This model has three massage seats, a lounger and a captain’s chair, which is a rare combination among midrange models. The manufacturer also added a touch-screen control panel, which we found makes it easier to operate the spa than are spas that have conventional control panels.

Note:  For purposes of this presentation, details provided apply to model named above photo area and not necessarily to models occasionally mentioned as being “also a Best Buy.”

Best Buys in portable spas were selected based on the quality of construction, number and types of jets, configuration of seats, jet systems and warranty.

Some portable spas allow for different jet configurations. Best Buy selections are based on the standard jet configuration for each model.

We evaluated only models that have seating configurations for 5–7 people, which is the most common size for a portable spa.

Unless otherwise noted, all Best Buys have acrylic cast shells.

Weight is measured when the tub is empty.

Best Price isn’t included, because manufacturers’ incentives, season promotions, freight costs and dealer rebates contribute to a variety of prices nationwide.
