Softub instructions

The Softub is a portable hot tub and spa that sets up outdoors or inside. Using a Softub is an affordable alternative to fibreglass or masonry spa tubs. It is also possible to set up one of these lightweight tubs on rental property and small decks where installation of traditional hot tubs would not be feasible. Softub operation is very similar to that of conventional hot tubs with the controls for settings on the detached pump motor unit.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Test the ground fault connection interrupter switch on the power cord by pressing the "Test" button on the switch. This should turn off the light on the ground fault switch and all control panel lights. Press the "Reset" button and resume using a Softub if the lights went out as designed. Unplug the power cord and do not use the Softub until notifying the dealer if any of the lights remain on after pressing the test button, or if the reset button does not restore power.

  2. 2

    Set the water temperature dial on the top of the motor unit to a comfortable setting that is low enough to avoid skin burns. Softub recommends temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius or lower for adults and temperatures below 37.8 degrees C for children.

  3. 3

    Turn the air valve knob 90 degrees counterclockwise to open it for water jet use. Remove the cover lid from the tub. Press the water jets button to turn on the jets for 15 minutes. Adjust each individual water jet spout by turning the head to the desired direction.

  4. 4

    Turn on the white interior tub light by pushing the depression switch; or set the SoftSparkle lighting effects for Softub operation if your unit is so equipped. Push the light button to turn on the SoftSparkle lighting effect that was last used. Push the light button twice before 10 seconds pass to change the lighting effect. There are 10 different effects to choose.

Tips and warnings

  • Maintain the water chemical balance according to the manufacturer's directions to prevent skin and eye irritations and damage to the tub.
