A paddling pool and a hot curry would be significantly cheaper.

Are these better than the Lay-Z-Spa ones?

I used to have an Mpsa Camaro (slightly posher version of this)- these are great fun and work surprising well (I had mine 5 years) the only thing I would say is that they cost similar to a hard shell tub to run (around £80-100 a month if you use it) if outside. I changed recently to a Softub T300 (probably the most efficient electric tub available but a fair bit bigger and more expensive) and my electric bill halved!
I would recommend buying one if you want a starter hot tub - it save's on the initial expense and you'll soon find out if you like it enough to think about upgrading. Make sure you get a chemical starter pack though too or your water will be cloudy and unhygienic within a week.

woohoo just might SPLASH out on one of these

It's got a 1500W heater and contains 700l of water. This means that even if it had perfect insulation (and obviously without cold air being blown through it) it would take half an hour to heat up by one degree - that's more than 10 hours from room temperature (20 degrees) to the 42 degrees it operates at. In that time it will cost you 16 units of electricity. And of course it'll be more than that because it does not have perfect insulation. If you can't wait that long then you'll have to leave it on all the time - and imagine how much that will cost you.

Oh, and the cover is for "safety" so isn't even insulated.

My turd like neighbours have this next to our fence, noisey as hell

I thought the hot tub fad had ended, with just a few people who still force themselves to use them so they don't have to admit they wasted their money. Can't use it in the summer as it's too hot, and usually raining. Can't use it in the winter as it's too cold, and usually raining. Cheaper to join a gym just to use the indoor hot tub and not have to clean and check PH levels every day.

I would never buy one but you can use these in the winter you know...thats why they're called hot tubs. I was in one of these on New Years Eve..it was lovely.

This years must have garden accessory, throw away your chav trampoline and get some class with one of these to go with your lovely £99 gazebo tent and the astro turf

They're called hot tubs because they're tubs of hot water. Cool, dry, clear night...lovely. The rest of the year... pointless waste of money.

yes they're ideal for our yearly week of summer.....best buy one now!

I have got one of these and it used to take me ages to warm it up until I thought of filling from the hot tap through a hose and with water heated by gas.

However, if your central heating or fire heats your home water, and you don't use it much in the way of showers after morning, you can just heat up the tub with hot water from your hot tap. (With long enough hose to your kitchen or bathrooms obviously).

... And drain the water next time you want to use it, hose on plughole to a garden drain, turn on the home hot water tap again, fill it up.
I can't say I understand people who keep a 1500w heater on all the time to keep a bubble bath ready to enter at midday Saturday and 3 am Wednesday night when they can do this.

This is assuming you already have a good amount of hot water as many homes do.
Otherwise, switch on the electric immersion boiler heater for an hour, or the central heating with water for an hour, fill it up.

Three fills a week, say 13 a month would be less than 25 pounds a month for many people.
Cleaner too, less chemicals for the body and longer life for filter and machine.

OK, if you are in and out a lot at the weekend for example, you might want the ease of not refilling and keeping the heat on. Otherwise, fill, empty, fill - save money. A lot.
It's not hassle - you pull the plug which should have a hose to drain attached.
Wait.
Unwind long hose (pref one of those ones which goes small), turn on hot water.

Slightly more complex than filling a bath.

For chemicals - you all barely need them with frequent empties and refills.

But anyway I found Clarion Spa oxygen silver which is really cheap compared to other sets - you only need the one packet, no shocks or ph adjusters or other requirements. One does all - ph keeps the same, colour isn't affected.

It is really cheap and no nasty chems on the body either. They sell on Amazon , probably eBay also. You just need a tiny bit if you are refilling water once or twice a week and everyone has a quick shower before a visit.

It's a long time ago this deal was posted, and the last comment.

But I couldn't stand to see people put off getting at cheap hot tub just for the thought of leaving a water heater on 24/7.

You are absolutely right to point out how barmy that is, though.
I use 2kw fan heaters at home, but I think no-one in their right mind would consider leaving them on all or much of the time.
I use them to heat a room from freezing, while the slow, cheaper heaters are coming on.
I consider 30 mins quite a long time to keep a 2kw fan heater going for.

To have one going out in the garden, day and night, can't be sane.

I am also going to invest in a big coffee urn as a extra heater when outdoors using the tub, for extra quick near boiling water top up when the bubbles have taken the temperature down too much.

They boil in 6 or 7 mins I think, but then there is a stay hot function for less than 100w. Or just empty the boiling water into the tube warm water and refill the canteen from a hose when needed again.
