Looking for the joys of hydrotherapy without dealing with additional electrical requirements? Enter the world of Plug n’ Play spas, also known as Plug and Play. But what exactly sets these spas apart from traditional portable hot tubs? Let’s explore what makes them unique.

Powering Your Hot Tub: A Fundamental Need

Regardless of your choice of portable hot tub, a power source is essential to run the jets, heat the water, and maintain its functionality. Typically, hot tubs require a 240V electrical hookup, which often entails calling in an electrician for new wiring. However, a Plug n’ Play spa operates on standard 110V power. This means you can plug it into most household power sources without the need for additional wiring, making it incredibly convenient.

Advantages of a Plug n’ Play Spa

The benefits of owning a Plug n’ Play Spa are striking. These 110V plug and play spas offer effortless setup – simply plug it in, fill it up, heat, and relish the soothing experience. What’s more, they aren’t hardwired into a permanent outside GFCI box, allowing easy relocation within your property, ideal for those wanting to revamp their backyard escape. This feature is a boon for renters seeking the health and relaxation benefits of a portable spa without the option for new electrical wiring.  Plug n’ Play spas are also reasonably priced, so you can install a spa without having to break the bank!

Key Considerations

While the 110V electrical requirement of a Plug n’ Play spa can lead to lower installation costs, understanding its performance differences is crucial. Models designed for a regular three-pronged exterior outlet usually operate a single pump at a time. This might affect the pace of water heating – typically slower – especially during the initial phase after refilling with fresh water. Though there might be differences in pump power, brands like Sundance® Spas balance jet-to-pump ratios, ensuring a quality massage experience.

Various Sizes and Styles Available

Plug n’ Play spas come in a variety of shapes and sizes, ranging from seating 2 people up to 6 so there are plenty of options for you to choose from. You can view our Plug n’ Play spas here.

The Splash series consists of a number of rotomold spas that are full-foam insulated and  specifically designed to be run on 110v.

The Paisley is the smallest model in the Splash Series (68″ x 78″ x 32″h). For a larger, more spacious spa, consider the Brook (78″ x 78″ x 36″h) or Berkeley (same dimensions as Brook but with a lounge seat).

Other Plug n’ Play spas include the 680 Series Alicia & Prado. These acrylic models feature series exclusive jets, patented MicroClean Mini Filtration with ClearRay UV-C Water Purification and SunStrong maintenance free cabinets with LED lighting.

If you are looking for the best in hydrotherapy but want the convenience of a spa that can just plug in to a regular outlet, Sundance has you covered!

The 780 Series Dover is a 2-3 person spa that includes all the features you would find on a large spa such as the Chelsee, but in a smaller footprint. The Dover could be considered the sports car of the hot tub world – All the finest features wrapped in a beautiful, compact exterior.
