What Do People Like & Dislike About Tuff Spas?

Now you have read our review of some of the Tuff Spas models, let's see what people like and dislike most about this brand and their tubs.

Affordable Price

Tuff Spas specialize in manufacturing rotomolded hot tubs which have good structural integrity and are very durable at an affordable price.

These are great hot tubs if you are on a tight budget and aren't too fussed about having loads of fancy features. That being said, Tuff Spas may not be the best choice if you want high-end luxury.

Tuff Spas also offer in-house finance options and will consider customers with all sorts of credit ratings.

Tuff Top Cover

Tuff Spas' starring feature is the Tuff Top cover which is the only hardtop cover with a patent in the world. It has a lifetime warranty so doesn't need replacing like standard vinyl spa covers.

The Tuff Top cover is insulated and seals for maximum heat retention plus it is easy to open and close, so you won't need help to remove it. Since it is a hardcover it doesn't sag or rot and it has patented channels that help water loss so it doesn't pool on the top after it has rained.

When the cover is opened out it doubles as a bar or shelf so you can rest drinks on it and it can actually support over a thousand pounds in weight. It also opens out sideways so doesn't obstruct your view of the surrounding area at all.

Environmentally Conscious

Tuff Spas' insulation, Blue sTUFF is manufactured using recycled denim. This sustainable insulation is completely made from natural fibers and is excellent at preventing heat loss plus it doesn't cause any skin problems if you accidentally touch it.

During the Tuff Spas manufacturing process, all their waste materials are reused or recycled. Tuff Spas also do not use many of the harmful chemicals that many other companies use in their manufacturing processes such as volatile organic compounds, resin, and urethane.

Their spas are also designed with energy efficiency in mind, with the insulating hardcover and heat-retaining spa shell.


All the Tuff Spas are plug-and-plays. This means they can be plugged into a standard electrical outlet and be ready to use.

This means you can save lots of money when it comes to installation costs as you won't need an electrician to do the wiring.


Tuff Spas offer pretty standard warranties. Many of these are limited warranties so make sure you read the small print as once it has been purchased and used it may be too late to change your mind.

Unlike full warranties, limited warranties have associated restrictions which means not all of your spa's problems may be covered.

The warranties are also non-transferable so they are only valid if you are the spa's original owner, i.e. the warranties would be void if it is purchased second-hand.

In Closing

Tuff Spas offer a selection of seven very affordable spas. Their Platinum Collection has some decent features but if it's high-end luxury and gadgets you are after, then this may not be the brand for you.

Tuff Spas' Standard Collection offers very basic models and is perfect if you have a small budget. Also, the Tuff Top cover is a unique feature to these spas and the company seems to be environmentally conscious.

I hope our Tuff Spas reviews have helped you to decide which model to pick. This company has had some very good customer reviews over the years.
