Great price for this hot tub and think its the cheapest price around at the moment so grab a bargain ! The Bestway Lay-Z-Spa Miami inflatable hot tub will comfortably seat 2-4 people and is the perfect way for couples and families to relax and unwind in 40°C water with a soothing message jet system. It can be set up practically anywhere there's a flat surface, whether outdoors or indoors, and is perfect for use on patios, outdoor decking and gardens with limited space. It is even suitable to box up and take on your travels to inflate at your leisure wherever you desire.

The set-up process couldn’t be simpler, just connect the inflatable hot tub to the pump heater and turn on the air blower. Once inflated, and the pipes have been connected, all that is left to do is to fill the inflatable hot tub with water and let it heat up your chosen temperature. The digitally controlled heater pump included in the package, regulates and adjusts the water temperature via the rapid heating system, helps to filter the water and operate the Lay-Z Massage Jet System which blasts jets of water into the tub for sensational relaxation. Sit back and feel the bliss of the turbo jet’s blasts of water soothing straining muscles and aching joints.

Made with sturdy I-Beam constructed walls, the hot tub comes with a reinforced cover to help keep unwanted debris out of the water. The Lay-Z-Spa Miami package also includes a chemical floater, spare filter cartridges and a free DVD detailing set-up and maintenance to help you get the most out of your inflatable spa.

Prepare to pay out to replace the pumps as they normally fail after 1 year or so
I recently invested in the Intex Octagon spa which I picked up for £389 on Amazing lightning deals. This looks like a good price for the Lazy spa
how much do these things cost to run? electricty etc

The Lay-Z Spa uses 2050W per hour whilst on the heat setting and 600W whilst running the inflation / massage function.You should contact your energy supplier to work out running costs.
Ours punctured and the patches were useless, the pump itself is as much as a new full unit, we've ordered a new liner at £155 as my other half loves the hot tub.
£300 electricity to run 6 hours a day for half a year.
They're great fun, but they don't last very long. If you can get a full years use out of it, you've done well. But, when they're working - they're lovely..!
Just get a paddling pool and fart in It, much cheaper

you're kidding right?
I leave my Vegas model on 24-7 at the max heat setting and it adds about £1 per day on cold days/night and less than half that on warm days. on a standard british gas tariff too.

edit - I have energy monitor so I can see exactly what, when and how much it costs me

the investment is in the joy it will bring however you commenting and pointing out how much money they have wasted has probably ruined that.
How noisy is the water/inflation pump?

My vegas is coming up for 3 years old now, had plenty use indoors and out, it's been packed away and taken out several times, ran constantly for weeks on end. the only issue I've had is the inflation tube burst - I contacted Bestway and they sent me a replacement in the post for free :). Theres a business locally that rents out these spas so they must be pretty sturdy and reliable to cope with that.

Some people buy them to run rental businesses, usually the rental cost is about a third of buying it outright so you'd make your money back pretty quickly if you were to "invest" hehe

Not sure if you've ever used a hot tub but the experience is better when it's cold outside.
Does this need to be connected to water or electric hook up permanently?

I assume this will be the max usage which will only be used when initially getting the water up to temp. If left on it will use a lot less per hour keeping the water at the required temperature.

I refer to investment in more of a broader context, as in investing in a lifestyle for me and my family. Not everything is about money (although perhaps his site is the wrong place to make such a claim lol)

Rubbish, Were on our third year, usually put in on Friday 6AM for the full weekend, power off sunday night. every other weekend or so., store it away after sept, get out at easter, works like a charm everytime, best 200+ quid I have ever spent. yeah it uses a little electric, we do this instead of going out spending 50/60 on a meal etc. More comfy than a plastic 5K one, Recommended by me. And after using this for a few weekends, I drain, clean, refill, and theres no way I would get in a 'Public' hot tub ever again, and I shower before I get in it.

these are brilliant, despite all the 'Haters/Jealous People/ and people who dont own one.

Is that hearsay or your actual experience?

If your actual experience, could you please go into a little more detail as to when and how your pumps failed?

Just interested as mine is now 4 years old, haven't tested it this summer yet, but was working fine last year.
I had my last one for 5 years and was still going strong when I sold it for half of the purchase cost. mine was the 6-8 person xl. not bad for 5 years use. no issues with pump and no punctures in main tubes. one puncture in base an one on the lid. both fixed easily with PVC glue and patch kit £1.50.
The most important tip is not to overinflate. leave the tubes slightly soft because by the time the get the heat from the water they will firm up. So many people don't do this and they can split at the seams My pump lasted no problem but I changed the filter every two day. I would then back flush them under a tap and would cover in percil liquid in washing machine. I had 5 filters over 5 years. I would just cycle the. I lost one that split. Often people don't clean them frequently and this causes the problem to the pump. I have just bought the Miami and it is realy well made. I love it. I heats up twice as quick as the XL. I think they are great so much so that I set up a rental business renting out the Lay z Spa Paris . These are really nice with the led lights that light up the whole tub.
The new pumps on the Miami and the Paris are great as they have a timer so you can delay the start up and duration. This is great for me as I can time it for when the sun is forecast as I have solar panels on my roof. I is costing me next to nothing to heat up and I also get paid for generating electricity even if I use it all. win! win!
I forgot to say at that price it is a no brainier. buy one. If you register the warranty within 30 days they extend the warranty to 12 months on the liner and 18 months on the pump. You could sell the for £180 after a years use.
Am I reading this correctly, it's only 65cm high?
This place is bad for me! Just bought one as a present for the Mrs bday in a few months. Is anything else needed, chemicals to clean etc or are we just up and away? I'm glad I plumbed an outside hot tap now! Must be cheaper to fill it from the boiler supplies hose than the electric motor/heater?

I have the Monaco and previous to that the grey inflatable one and I have FOUR pumps that are broken and am currently bidding on EBay for my 5th pump therefore I am talking from experience and really do people get jealous over something that costs as little as a couple of hundred quid ??? I am guessing you live on Benefits street

One pump started leaking water at the base, two just keep tripping the electric when the heater is put on but everything else works and I had a brand new spare which worked for 2 days but now just comes up with E02 but nothing fixes it so won't even engage the filter or heater

​​I comes with two filters. you need a pack of test strips . you will also need a sanitiser such as chlorine granules or tablets .This can be bought from eBay cheaply. if you find your PH or alkalinity out of the norm you will need chemicals to adjust that. I would just buy the chlorine and test strips and buy the other chemicals for PH and alkalinity if these are needed. I have been lucky that our supply is fairly balanced already.

What a classy life you live.
didn't need one at all, but decided to do a bit more research and probably will buy the Vegas with the cleaning pack (339 I think! 319 with code). Maybe 1.5% caahback through quidco,unless the voucher voids eligibility.
Be careful where you live - if you have hard water then the life of the pump will be impacted unless you do one of the following:

Buy an adaptor that softens the water as your filling it up or
Buy an Intex Hot Tub that has the salt /chlorine generation system inbuilt to protect against water hardness

Either way they are great. We've an Intex Deluxe with Jets and bubbles, it goes up in April/May and away in October

If you insulate the floor underneath it and you site it out of sunlight and the wind the heating/running costs are ok - £3-6 a week running costs. We use ours almost every evening and change the water out every 3 months.

It is cost effective if you use it and enjoy it.
rlatarche

site it out of sunlight and the wind.



Why would you site it out of sunlight? Wouldn't direct sunlight help maintain temperature so cost less to run?

Why the vegas over this one? Can I ask what your research uncovered? I'm sorely tempted to buy this, for my own use, but if the Vegas is more reliable then i'll spring for that one.
Just now noisy in the pump though? Can you really kick back and chill if the pump is loud?

​i have had the lazy spa miami for nearly a year and this is nearly exactly how I use it. turn it on Friday about midday then off at night then back on in the morning and leave it off during the week. the temperature doesn't drop too much overnight. and thw chlorine tablets keep the water clean. and the kids love it.
