Dream Maker X-100 Spa Portable Hot Tub Review
Relaxing in a spa is a wonderful way for your body to relax from the stresses of everyday life. If you’re new to the world of spas, you probably want one that can be set up with minimal effort, but doesn’t skimp on performance or features.
The Dream Maker X-100 Portable Hot Tub Spa is a 5 person hot tub that is portable for convenience, easy to set up but still packed with power with its high performance pump and hydrotherapy jets. Can the dream maker make your dreams come true or does it fall short? Read on to find out.
Dream Maker X-100 Portable Hot Tub Features
- Capacity for five people
- Latest generation BALBOA digital controls
- 5 hydrotherapy jets with side air controls
- Lightweight and 100% portable
- 1.5 horsepower pump and motor
- 110 volt operation
- Full foam insulation for lower operating costs
Capacity for five people
If you are looking for a hot tub for your family, the Dream Maker is ideal with its 5 person capacity. However, it can be too cramped with 5 adults so if you are not looking for a family spa I would recommend it for no more than 4 adults.
Lightweight and 100% portable
Weighing just 190 pounds, the Dream Maker X-100 is lightweight and portable, giving you the convenience of moving it to your desired location when you want a change. If you have enough space in your house, you can even bring it inside in winter so you can live the dream all year long. If you bring it indoors, be sure to place it on a very solid surface (ideally concrete).
The spa plugs into a standard 110-volt outlet, so no additional expensive electrical work is required, allowing you to quickly start heating your hot tub.
Heating up the spa takes a long time. It takes about 20 hours to reach 100 degrees if you fill it with 70 degree water. However, at temperatures below 70 degrees it takes much longer to warm up, so if you live in a colder region, be prepared for a longer wait.
Full foam insulation is 1.8 lbs. density that is designed to reduce operating costs as well as being beneficial to the environment.
5 hydrotherapy jets with side air controls
The 5 hydrotherapy jets are powered by a 1.5 horsepower pump that has been designed to deliver high performance. The side air controls allow you to modify the amount of air entering the jet system, allowing you to find the perfect combination of air and water for a relaxing massage after a hard day.
The round circular shape of this hot tub means you feel the high pressure of the jets at all angles, giving you an immersive spa experience.
On the downside, the Dream Maker X-100 Portable Spa Hot is only suitable for indoor or temperate climates, so if you live in a colder region, it will take longer to heat the water to the desired temperature.
Dream Maker has included some nice additional features, like a color-changing waterfall that adds to the atmosphere when you relax in the water. The jets are powerful and therapeutic thanks to the high-performance pump, so you will probably spend many hours on them. Overall, it’s a great option for someone who wants the portability and convenience of a spa, but doesn’t want to sacrifice performance.
