Pros & Cons


  • Economical price: The Miami hot tub is very affordable, and one can get the exposure of Jacuzzi at their place without spending the bag of fewer dollars.
  • Easy installation: It can be installed very quickly; no professional expert is needed for installation. It can be moved either side outside or inside. It also has Inflatable lid that attaches with Velcro to the tub.
  • Solid and sturdy construction: It comes up with solid and sturdy construction. The mechanism and making of this tub is done keeping in mind the comfort level of the user.
  • Safety: Power plug works with standard 120v outlet and has water-safety tripping functionality. Consumers suggested that putting the tub on its circuit has added security, and there has no report on breaker-tripping problems till now.
  • Gentle relaxation: Foam padded bottom is comfortable to sit on, even with the hot tub on concrete. Users report that the noise level of the heat pump and bubble massage system is relatively quiet, about like a loud hum. It is an excellent option for tenants or anyone those who move frequently.


  • Limit of temperature: Many of the consumers wish to enjoy the temperature of the water over 104-degree F. But there is a limit to that in this hot portable water tub.
  • Overhead cost: Water chemicals aren't included, although the chemical floater is. It is an ongoing cost. Water splashes over the sides whenever the cover is removed, which is an issue if the tub is placed inside. It is thereby, recommended not to set the tub on the carpet or any other surface that could be damaged by water.
  • Maintenance and cleaning: Filters requires cleaning on a daily basis and replacements weekly, resulting in an ongoing expense. The manual recommends draining and refilling the tub every three days, which is a considerable cost in both time and money, not to mention having to wait for the new water to heat up.
  • Inconvenience: You can’t run the bubbles and the heater at the same time. The air that makes the bubbles moves is cold air, which you can feel if you put your hands directly next to the jets. The water temperature will drop about 2-4 degrees in about 30 minutes. Some users reported that the tub loses airing capacity if left away for weeks together or if there's a temperature swing of 4 degrees.
  • Safety: There can be a smell of plastic at the first point, but you can get out of this by leaving the tub up for 24 hours. The cord length of 15 feet may fall short, but if you need more length than provided, you may opt for an extension cord; however, there are chances of electrical overload and cord damage.

Do NOT buy this Best way hot tub. I went through 4 heater/pumps during my one year warranty and the pump still does not work. I will never buy another.

Nick Schultz says December 12, 2017

After much consideration my wife and I made the decision 7 months ago to purchase a Palm Springs hydrojet Lay-z-spa as a tenth wedding anniversary gift to each other – something we hoped we would get a lot enjoyment and use out of, for a long time to come.

Initially all was well, it was easily installed and operated very well and we were extremely happy with our purchase. This being the case, we had to pack the spa away shortly after purchasing it as local conditions weren’t conducive to running it. Recently, we excitedly got it back out as conditions were again good and set it up again.

Now, in my ownership I had diligently maintained it, as it cost a lot of money – as you are all probably aware. My maintenance of the spa also, most definitely included paying attention to safe inflation pressure limits – that being 1.2 PSI. So with all this in mind, I set it up about two weeks ago and had since used it, maybe 3 or 4 times. All in all, since purchasing it, a total usage of definitely no more than one month. You could even tell it was barely used, as there was next to no discolouration inside the pool.

So, a few days ago I decide to heat the spa up for a dip later that night and as I’m sitting in my lounge I hear an extremely loud POP, puzzled I went outside and looked around trying to figure out what it was. I couldn’t, so I went back inside, only to hear another loud POP a short while later. I went back outside and to my horror observed a large bulge in the liner and instantly realised what had happened.

Immediately I called the sales agent in the country I live and was told that despite it’s light usage and due to it being a month out of warranty, the best they could do was offer another liner at cost price – not really good enough if you ask me given it’s usage. Interestingly, as it turns out, all of the Palm Springs hydrojet liners are out of stock – go figure…

I can’t speak to the other Lay-z-spa products, but assume they are likely as shoddily constructed as the Palm springs and as such it is my recommendation that the Best(more aptly named WORST)way, Palm Springs lay-z-spa hydrojet model, should be avoided like the the PLAGUE! In hindsight I wish I had spent more on a solid spa, which would have actually lasted and this would be the advice I would give to anyone thinking about purchasing a worstway pop-up spa. Again – an extremely weak product and a giant waste of money. Save your hard earned cash and spend it on something that actually lasts – LONGER THAN A MONTH!!!!!
