Been running it for a month and pump is already broken.
Edit : 22/08/18 Finally got pump packaged up to be sent back for repair. Was speaking to the courier who picked it up, and he said they are getting many returns of the pumps, a good amount of them apparently giving off smoke.
Absolutely fantastic!!!! Originally we were going to buy a permanent hot tub. But I always like to jet wash my patio during winter, so it couldn't go on there. Looking at prices and adding in the cost of creating a new area for it to sit, it got a little expensive. We weren't quite sure if we would get the use out of it or if it would be a 'one summer wonder'. I found this inflatable hot tub, and thought it would be great during the summer (on current patio), then take down during winter so I could wash the patio. Our original thoughts were that if we used it regularly then we would in a few years invest in a permanent hot tub. Well, how things change!!!! We love it so much that we would not buy a permanent hot tub. This one enables the children to move about, float on their backs and generally have a great time. It is fantastic. I am so pleased with my purchase, even my sceptical husband loves it. It was easy to assemble and inflate. The highest temperature is definitely hot enough. The bubbles are great. Definitely our best buy!!
I would give 5 stars as I really love it, but it has a fault on the base, I don't know if anyone else has had the same thing. The floor of the tub has a very large blister type bubble. When I telephoned to report this, I was told this is nothing to worry about and will sort itself out in 6 to 8 weeks! It apparently needs to stretch. I don't know where it has to stretch to. I feel fobbed off. This is first day of using, so nothing to do with age or wear and tear.
Apart from that, I love it and it heats up great. Working out chemicals is a big tricky but not too bad, it's a learning curve for me. It is deep and feels very roomy. The grandkids are loving it too. The bubbles are good and not too noisy, wouldn't use the bubbles too late at night though.
All in all, good value for money, does what it says on the box and very happy with it. Just wish it didn't have the large blister on the bottom.
Just an update on first review shown above. This is now 12th September and bubble/blister on floor of tub has not even started dissipating. I was told by customer services on phone give it 6 to 8 weeks. I don't think it's going to sort itself. I am really unhappy, but I will have to give it the cursory 8 weeks then I expect a replacement tub under faulty goods act. I love it, great value and fun but not happy sitting on a bubble. I have attached a couple of photos of bubble.
I bought this to replace an Mspa Super Camaro that broke 6 weeks out of warranty ... I thought the Mspa was greatfun but this is a better product.
It is quicker to set up, has thin sides but comfy to lean against and is just, well, better made ! The motor is external and very, very quiet. It heats to 40c but in my opinion could do with being a couple of 'c' hotter. It's Ok but I would prefer hotter - like my Mspa. That said, as has been mentioned, this spa keeps the heat it has loads longer than my old Mspa. That was hotter but lost heat a lot, lot quicker than this spa. This is good for a couple of hours in it if you wish on a cold day.
When bubbling the heater turns off so beware of having the bubbles on too long if you want it to still heat up. The bubbles are not as much as the Mspa but more pleasing as you can talk and relax - overall they are more relaxing than the Mspa which was a bit aggressive with them on. The base of the spa is cushioned and comfy on it's own though 4 little blow up seat things are included ...
The external dimensions are the same as my Mspa but this is a lot bigger inside due to the thinner sides - this is far better and a great size. It says 4 people but you could get 6 in no problem ... the only issue might be water going over the sides as it fills quite high.
I am thoroughly pleased with this spa and the backup available - something I didn't get with the Mspa when it went wrong. I could definitely recommend this as good value and loads of fun :)
