You're thinking of a pregnancy testing kit. Although, some people call these s*x ponds so you might need one.

the Vegas is really good too. worth the money.

Just to point out the ground sheet £29.99 and the chemicals £29.99 need to be purchased separately

Don't need a ground sheet and chemicals can be bought cheap on ebay

Probably worth getting a plain ground sheet though, these are time consuming to clean!

just use any kind of groundsheet if you want. the chemicals are really cheap on eBay (like soap powder blocks that you just put into a floating dispenser)
you need some water testing strips to make sure the water is kept clean but again they are cheap from the likes of eBay.
the heater on these can get the temp fantastically hot. we tend to set ours to 38 and that is gorgeous.

we've tried ground sheets and found the best solution was the rubber gym matts
I found some on Ebay quite cheap
Gives it a nice comfy finish under and good insulation too

We've had the vegas for 3 years now
Chemicals from ebay too

Top tips:
- Clean the filter EVERY DAY (finger on a hose pipe to direct the spray into the grooves), it'll then last 2+ months
- Never let the chlorine tablets run out (It'll turn green slime and be unrecoverable shortly after 24 hours)

Good points as I forgot the chlorine ..holiday and ...

​haha oops.. it's too early! clear WATER! Not sure chlorine is the most romantic aphrodisiac but each to their own

You might want to switch from using chlorine to bromine if that's an issue.

If you have a spa, bromine has a lot of advantages over using chlorine. It may cost a little bit more, but it lasts longer and does a much better job than chlorine at killing bacteria, especially at high temperatures and high pH levels.

It'll also make your hot tub smell like a Disney water ride.

The Disney water ride bit sounds very wrong!!

Thinking of getting an MSpa tub as everything is built in. Anyone used an MSpa?

Also I've heard people say that the LayZSpa's are very loud/noisy?

standard clearwater chlorine tablets do the job
1 or 2 in the floater (just pop 1 in each time ones nearly shrunk away, every 3 or 4 days)
just the first hit on on ebay but plenty around £13 for 50

Look after it from day 1 and PH+ or PH- is not really required

Do these cost a lot in electricity to heat the water?

Studio has one in for £249.99 not sure on the make though

I have an MPSA Alpine 4 man and it's great, £250 from studio has someone above has said, everything is built in and not much noise, I've never tried the lazy spas so can't compare but this one is worth every penny.

How much do these cost to run? Is it best to leave it on all the time if you're using it regularly? Thanks

It depends on your Tarif, Temperature, Outside ambient temp, Usage and how many times you refresh the water (i.e.: Heat from Cold.)

I'm on a fixed rate from 2016 and have been running mine in between March - Late October. It ticks over at 34 degrees on average and we use it four times a week ramping up the temp to 38 / 40 degrees when we get in, depending on ambient outside temp in the evenings. Clean it and turn down temp when we get out.

The (HONEST!) costs are as follows:

March - May = ~ £10 a Week.
June - Aug = ~ £7 a Week
Aug - Oct = ~ £12 a Week

And in answer to the "keep it on / running all the time?" question - Absolutely yes. The lower the water temp drops the more expensive they are to run. The Water Temp drops on average 4 - 5 degrees overnight if you switch it off, where as keeping it on lets the thermostat tick over, which in turn means uses ( a LOT!) less electricity. I have tested both options.

To be fair to Bestway, these tubs are fairly efficient at keeping heat in.

Obviously - These are as close to "average" figures as I can work out and you don't HAVE to run yours for the colder months if you don't want to. We personally feel its a luxury worth running. Other haters may moan and be shocked about price and ECO credentials etc. Each to their own.

If you buy one, I hope you enjoy it. Life is too short not to.

its a 2kw heater- so assuming 15p per kw(insert your cost per kw here), 30p an hour until its up to temp. Probably best to keep it on so it keeps the temp up and the heater isn't running more than it needs to. The temp reduces quickly with the top off, so I have put a roll of radiator foil between the leatheroid cover and liner. Not sure how much heat it keeps in, but it has to help. The blower for the bubbles (unless you eats copious amounts of heinz 57) is 1 kw- so 15p per hour. It has a timer on it, so you can set that along with a temp setting. I use 37 degrees, but if the suns beaming I set that to 40. I have solar pv, so try to heat it when the suns out during the day and im looking to get an economy 7 tarriff next year so I can heat it at night cheaply. Have fun!

We have had LZS for years but run an MSpa now. 100% better all round. FYI...18p pr hourly rate when heating and 4p pr hourly rate with just fillter running (that what my smart meter says lol) Still sounds like a hoover but reduced by 50%, can hear what we are all saying now

I'd be careful with these, they literally eat the electricity, we got one from fashion world a month ago (250), easily uses 20 quid of power in a week, that's from heating from cold and keeping the temperature up, i'd say to use hot water from your gas, then use the 2000w heater to keep it warm as needed.

Bought one of these last month and a great little parasol form Ikea for £40. Great bit of fun

Does it come with pampas grass?

It's an inflatable paddling pool, not an Olympic size swimming pool.

these make great insulating mats for under these hit tubs. keep it clean while saving a little money in heat loss through the ground halfords.com/wor…0cm

I'm properly torn between this and the Alpine on Studio - Any quick pros and cons for each?

Thanks for the post. I'm tempted by one of the MSpa ones from Studio...

Has anyone bought the mspa off studio because it isn't listing a cover. Just wondering if it has one please. Thanks

The MSpa looks like mine but would never pay £25 delivery cost...

Yeah... that was looking a bit of a sting... seems there's a few 10% off codes kicking around, bringing this to £247.99 so.. pretty much free delivery. Seems like this is a good price still but it pretty hard to find it much online which makes me a bit hesitant to bite!

Ah. Decision made on the Alpine one at Studio. It's out of stock now! Haha (_;)
