A hot tub specialist has slashed the price of its inflatable spa by a whopping £340 – and the bargain could be the perfect dupe of Aldi’s more expensive alternative.
Online home and garden retailer Net World Sports has reduced its four-person tub from £510 to just £170.

The mega discount is said to save shoppers 70%, but even better news is that it’s £180 cheaper than an almost identical budget competitor that Aldi sells.
The cheaper Dupe sleeps up to four, just like Aldi’s, and it even shares the same sleek black color on the exterior design.
This inflatable hot tub assembles in under five minutes and can reach temperatures of 42°C soon after finding a home in your backyard.
An added bonus are the 130 soothing and massaging air jets to help you relax while you enjoy your new purchase.
The Jacuzzi had already gone through a big discount when Net World Sports dropped the price to just £259.99.
This reduction meant the price was initially reduced by almost £250, a saving of around 50%, but now a further discount has meant a whopping two-thirds of the total.
That’s “a price you won’t see anywhere else on the market this summer, not even at Aldi,” said the gardening equipment giant.
Aldi’s hot tub costs shoppers a whopping £399.99 by comparison.
It’s one of the store’s few special buys that hasn’t been completely wiped off the shelves as demand for gardening tools soars with the warmer weather.
But while Net World Sports’ Dupe is an impressive 60% cheaper than Aldi’s, it’s still worth checking out before you spend.
You might find an even better deal than the massive discount on the hot tub dupe.
We’ve yet to spot any that can match the chip’s cheap £170 price tag, but B&M have made a significant reduction of their own – dropping its £400 tub to just £250 recently.
Meanwhile, a Lay-Z-Spa hot tub we’ve seen on sale is cheaper than a slew of its competitors, including Aldi, B&Q and Asda.
You also have to consider shipping costs when shopping from the cheaper online retailer.
Your purchase from Net World Sports includes an additional £40 in delivery charges once you are at checkout. So keep that in mind when budgeting for the luxury purchase.
Can I afford a new hot tub?
The whopping £340 discount might be enough to tempt you to spend, but can you afford a new hot tub?
With utility bills at their highest these days, a new gardening tool that relies on plenty of electricity to get the bubbles going might not be a friend of your tariff.
Loop energy saving experts say some of the least energy efficient models – which are often the cheapest – could add a whopping £300 a month to electricity bills.
And especially now that energy bills have skyrocketed by almost another £700, it’s important to think about your consumption.
According to Loop, an efficient hot tub using an average of 7kWh per day costs around £1.98.
That means it costs about £60.23 if you use it for about 7 hours every day for a month.
And if you had an inefficient hot tub – one that isn’t very well insulated – it could cost five times as much.
Net World Sports offers a few options to lower your costs over the long term, but you’ll have to spend a little more upfront to do so.
You can add an inflatable lid to your purchase for an additional £30, which will help retain heat while saving 40% on your energy bills, according to the retailer.
Meanwhile, a thermal cover could save another 40% on your bills, but it means you’ll have to shell out an extra £120 just to add the energy-saving element to your purchase.
