Been searching around for a hot tub deal. B and M's had the best price on the Miami version of this Hot tub, but they seem to be sold out almost everywhere and they are slightly smaller, so after some searching around we found this deal and purchased one. Seems to be the best price around and they have had it down at this price a few times.

You can click and collect or pay an extra £10 for delivery.

Set mine up yesterday and heating up it today ready for a test run later

How long did it last before you binned it then?


Bought mine in February. Changed the water once a month. Treated with a couple of teaspoons of chlorine every day. Changed the filter every day.

Mine is working perfectly, I used it every day until the weather got a bit hot. At 6”4’ and 18st regular baths don’t really do it for me.

Ignore the ‘they’re so tacky’ brigade. Who cares? Mine is in my back garden, not the front and I love it. If you’re thinking about getting one don’t hesitate - and don’t believe everything you read on HUKD. They’ve never been under £200, not even the entry level tubs. The Miami (which I have) is the smallest and cheapest and I paid £250 for mine, down from £299 and that’s about as cheap as they get.
Abandon ship lol.

They heat the water up and blow out lots of bubbles.
I would like to know what your expectations were if you only paid £150 for one??

Oh I've got one lol, the Miami, had it a year. I was just interested in how long the commenters Vegas spa lasted. Also agree re it being good for us larger folk, I'm bigger than you (weight wise) and don't enjoy not being fully submerged in water in a traditional bath. Layz spa all the way my top tip is to shower before you get in it, to save the filters. Mine has lasted flipping ages doing it that way.

Communal baths
I bought mine in May for the same price.
Had it set up a few weeks now, took just under a week to get the chemicals correct.
I was going to just use it as a glorified pool for the kids, the first time I had it set at about 28 degrees they were a little cold in it.
Next time I drained a quarter of the water and filled it back up with hot water from my mixer tap to heat up quicker.
I banged it way up to 40 degrees and it was nice for me, the next day we had a BBQ and the kids went back in it 40 was too hot for them, they liked it at 35 degrees.
I have put a 3mtr gazebo round it for some privacy on a night but when we are in it during the day with the kids I just lift the sides up.
I put some of the coloured interlocking tiles on the floor with some reflective underlay for laminate flooring, hopefully this will prevent heat loss from below.
I understand that I will need to keep on top of the chemicals and the heating of the tub, but from my guess the reduction in my heating bill during the summer will pay for this.
I definitely think you would struggle if 6 people were in this more like 2 adults and 2 children max.
I hope this helps anyone thinking of getting one.
I've said this on many other threads, these are amazing. Only ten mins ago I got out of my layz spa Miami and I love it. It is the most relaxing thing. I back onto a farm so it is so quiet so I don't use the bubbles a lot but either way, it is a brilliant purchase. The weather this past week or so has made it hard to use but I cannot wait for autumn (never thought I'd say that) because it will be immense then

Proof?
Genuinely interested in picking up one of these, but my concern is the cost of the upkeep. I'm on a water meter so the need for regular refills is the main concern. Anyone actually done the maths on the costs since getting one? Water bill, electricity, filters, chemicals, etc? What's it all add up to? I'm only planning to use as a leisure thing for me, the wife and 1 child; not as a bath alternative or for wild parties, etc.

Depends on how may time a week you see yourself using it?
I had one of these, it lasted two seasons before we had to chuck it. The problem with them is that they are meant to be packed away during the colder months (as this version cannot operate in cold weather) but I never found a way to ensure all the water was removed from the liner - it got trapped within the small holes - even when using the pump to blow the remaining water out. This meant when it was packed away, the remaining water leaked out and made the lining mouldy so when you got it out for the next year, it was covered in pink and green mould stains!

The other issue I has with this model is the outer leatherette cover, if water gets between this and the inner liner - you cannot get it out unless you take the whole thing apart - again this can cause mould.

I think we only paid about £200 for ours when Homebase has them cheap plus a 20% day or something so lasting two years seems about right.

It cost us roughly an extra £10/15 a month to run plus the cost of chemicals and filters

Probably 2-3 times on average, once the intial novelty wears off.
I’ve got the New York version of this. Previously owned a hand built wooden hot tub so was a bit sceptical about this. It has far exceeded my expectations with regards to the ease of use and quality. I think I paid about £329 for mine when on offer, but it does have led lighting in the base which lights it up internally and I think makes a real difference. No need for lights on around then to see other people.
I dont use the bubbles too much but they’re good when I do. Heats up well and can be put on a timer to start heating up when you want, so you can set it up and it’ll start heating say when you’re at work to save the heat being on all day. The ‘lid’ is good if strapped down well as it’s a tight fit so retains heat well. Chemicals very easy to use, and buy a bulk load of filters from Amazon or eBay (not expensive) that last a long time each.
Those concerned about water costs, I’m pretty sure you can apply for some ‘one off each time’ water cost with your supplier confirming the water won’t go into the drainage system for treatment, and they charge you a set cost. You provide start and finish meter readings and they charge you like £1 or something, so you just fill the tub regardless of how much water you might use. Something like that
If you’re gonna use these a few times a week, I’d suggest keeping it at a temp a few degrees below when you finish each time (say 35 deg) so it’s quick to reach optimum (38 deg) temp again. The thermostatic heater just tops up the heat now and then. If longer (say 1 week or more) between uses, I’d let it cool completely and then heat again which works out cheaper than maintaining the heat.

A would say a rough estimate of £8 -£10 a week based on 2-3 45 min sessions

Surely the used water ends up in the drain at some point though? Particularly if having to refill once a month as recommended. Or are you saying you tell the water company you're watering the lawn?

I don’t think you need to tell them what you’re doing. You just confirm it’s not going down the drain for treatment. Exactly - straight into the garden I’ll try and find a link if I get time later
We've got a Vegas, last year used it a lot, maybe 3-4 times a week.
This year less so.
The "egg" heater can be a pain when into your second season onwards, the flow sensors need careful monitoring to prevent the dreaded "E02" failure.
