Since this inflatable tub is smaller, but from the same powerhouse brand, that is Bestway Lay-Z-Spa, you know that you’re getting an incredible value with this product. It is going to have the same patented, 3-ply reinforced TriTech, that guarantees top of the line durability. The Miami is Bestway’s world’s first premium inflatable spa, and it still remains a top choice in the industry.
The soft but non flimsiness of inflatable hot tubs may be a hit or miss depending on the consumer. But a lot of people who have sat in $6000+ hot tubs have actually preferred the softer feel of inflatable tubs to the concrete, plastic and other mashups of portable hot tubs. Inflatable hot tubs are soft but firm, and really provide a relaxing feel compared to portable hot tubs. This is of course based on individual tastes, so take that with a grain of salt. Inflatable hot tubs also inflate and deflate pretty quickly, so that is less time waiting around for it to reach max capacity so you can start filling it with water. But portable hot tubs don’t have this waiting period at all, and if you’re the type that is in a rush that extra time it takes to inflate can really make a difference.
The biggest issue with the Hawaii Air Jet is the same that besets all SaluSpa products – the obnoxious placement of the control panel. The massaging jets are great, but the last thing I want to do is half to get out of the spa to turn them on, and I inevitably forget to turn them on before I get in. This is a small complaint, of course, and doesn’t diminish the value or the durability of this hot tub.
So in conclusion, we decided that even though we had some reservations when we first started looking at inflatable spas, we are glad we now own one. They have come along way, and they have features that we were looking for like economy and ease of maintenance. We feel that the pros outweigh the cons and an inflatable hot tub fits just right with our lifestyle and needs.
Since the BestWay company was founded in 1994, it has delivered top-tier sporting and leisure products, making a name for itself on a very competitive market. Probably the most impressive one they have offered to their already loyal base of customers is the SaluSpa Hawaii HydroJet Pro, a tub that has impressed with its amazing capabilities and affordable price tag. The main objectives of this brand when manufacturing and distributing their high-quality tubs are the satisfaction of customers and the protection of the environment.
Ideal Size for Your Needs Is it for just solo or 2-person dips? Or are you planning on having the whole family enjoy the tub? Its size should suit your plans on how you’re going to use it. What you may realize is that a supposed 6 person portable hot tub is actually a comfy 4 person portable spa. A 4 person hot tub is really a 2 person portable spa, with perhaps 2 small kids. And you don’t want to get a 2 person portable hot tub unless you plan on using it solo.
Aside from the standard water filtration, Hawaii Hydrojet comes with 2 water treatment system: Hard water and Saltwater. The built-in hard water treatment system helps keep the water from drying up your skin for soaking for some time. The saltwater treatment system, on the other hand, breaks down salt and turns it into natural and safe chemicals that help keep the water clean.
The amount of time it takes to heat up will all depend on the product you buy, however, they all have electric heaters (not gas). So, the amount of time it takes the portable spa to heat up in comparison to the amount of time it takes the traditional spas to heat up will be longer. After about one hour, the water temperature will increase by 2 or 3 degrees. If you plan on setting the tub up and using it for a long period of time, then this isn’t going to be a downfall. However, if you just want to use it during the weekends, you need to schedule the set-up one day in advance so that the water will be fully heated.
An inflatable hot tub is definitely at the smaller end of the “size” spectrum. When the specifications declare it's a 4-person hot tub, what that really means is 2 children and 2 adults all sitting close together, or 4 adults all sitting very close together. The average 4-person blow up hot tub that holds around 200-250 gallons is best thought of as a 2-person hot tub, with plenty of room to stretch out and relax. That’s not to say that any more people is out of the question, but more than 2 and you’re likely to find yourself making contact with someone else. For some this closeness may not be a problem.
It can accommodate a maximum of 4 people at once. It has a water capacity of 217 gallons, and the rapid heating system is able to raise the temperature of the water by 2-3°F per hour. The maximum heat capability that it features is of 103°F. It comes with 88 air jets that deliver a soothing massage. To ensure that the water in it will be of a great quality and safe to sit in, it features a useful water filtration system.
This plug and play inflatable spa has one of the easiest setups possible, demanding that you spend just a few minutes during the process. At the same time, it requires no plumbing whatsoever, mostly due to its ingenious thermal systems. Speaking of which, the tub has solid-state thermic controls which enable you to control the temperature of the water in great detail along with the tub’s many other features.
At first, we were unsure of an inflatable hot tub. We were even concerned that it may look cheap or not hold up. I mean you get this vision of someone sitting on the edge and it popping, flooding your backyard during a relaxing time or a fun party. But after doing our research and now becoming owners, well, just let that vision fade away because that is not what these inflatable Lay-Z-Spa hot tubs are all about.
