12 Best Lazy Spa Hot Tubs Reviewed

12 best lazy spa hot tubs reviewed

Sine the lock down started we have put our time and energy into making our garden a real haven for peace and family fun.  We built an outdoor covered area, got in a BBQ, awesome seating area, twinkly lights and a cool sound system but it was just missing that certain something. 

And then my hubby ordered the Lazy Spa Hot Tub!  I wasn’t impressed at first but omg sitting in there with a cocktail had me convinced in seconds!  As a cool plunge pool for the kids it was perfect size and depth and for us to get a little bit of romance outside our back door…well it does the trick!

With a ton of different types, easy set up and maintenance, the lay-z spa is an absolute must-have for your garden chill zone.  You can use it all year round, unwind at the end of the day with a drink, and it’s basically like having a hot tub but not as expensive.  Imagine a spa and cocktail after a long day of work and the commute –  Sold you yet? I mean, what more could you want, right? 

And if you think a Lazy Spa sounds a lot like what I’m talking about here, you’re right, it’s the same thing. Truth is, it’s actually called a Lay-z Spa and a not Lazy Spa. But really, who cares what it’s called, as long as it works! And boy, I assure you, your blood pressure levels will thank you for this purchase!

Guide to buying the best Lazy Spa Hot Tub

So are you ready to get yourself your first lay-z spa hot tub.  But with these different styles, sizes, and makes, where do you start? Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. In this short guide, we’re going to look at size, cost, durability, and basically, everything you need to know to make the best purchase.

Let’s get to it! 

Size

When buying your lazy spa, you want to check the space available in your backyard. After that, think about how many people the inflatable hot tub will be for. Are you planning on inviting friends? Or is it just for you and your partner? For the kids too? 

Usually, lay-z spas have enough room for up to 4 people. Like the Lay-Z-Spa Cancun Hot Tub, for instance. This lay-z spa measures 180 x 180 x 66 cm and you can have 2 to 4 people in there. 

But if you want a little more space for a party, get a lay-z spa that can have up to 6 people! The Lay-Z-Spa Milan Airjet Plus Inflatable Hot Tub measures 196 x 196 x 71 cm and can have 4 to 6 people! Again, it depends on what you prefer, your budget, and what you plan on doing with your lazy spa. 

But let’s take a look at the cost next.

Cost

When buying a lazy spa, it’s good to think about how much it will cost to maintain each month. While the cost of the actual lazy spa is a lot more affordable than a hot tub, easier to put together, and cheaper to maintain, it’s still going to impact your energy bills.  You also need to factor in the additional cost to your  weekly shop as you’ll have to buy sanitisers and other chemicals to take care of the water. (plus cocktail stuff hahah)

The electricity and water your lazy spa would use is usually around £80 a month extra. Add £20 to that for cleaning equipment. That boils down to around £20 a week to maintain and run a Lazy Spa. That said, the cost of your spa will obviously vary depending on how long you use it for, what settings you use, how many people bathe in it, and your local energy provider. 

In any case, it’s very useful to make a few calculations before making your purchase!

Buyers guide to finding the right lazy spa hot tub

Durability

When choosing your lazy spa, you probably want to know how long this thing is going to last. The good news is, with awesome drop stitch material and a beam construction inside the walls, lazy spas keep their shape and quality no matter how many times you inflate and deflate them. 

The drop stitch material uses thousands of super strong polyester threads to create a rigid and hard surface making a super strong inflatable spa surface. And with a ton of great benefits like built-in pumps, as long as you take care of this baby, this thing will last you a lifetime!

Warranty

Depending on which make you go with, the warranty tends to be around two years. This means that whatever happens, you can ask for some advice with your manufacturer, send it back for repair, or even get a new one sent out to you in case of a malfunction! Just make sure you keep the receipt and you’ll be well served.

Setting up a Lay Z Spa Hot Tub

The great thing about lazy spas is that they’re super easy to set-up. In fact, many of the products we’re reviewing today only take 5 minutes to put together. And without any tools! 

Firstly though, the best thing to do when you set up your spa is to read the instructions carefully. Make sure you pick a level spot, free of weeds, stones, or other potentially annoying objects. Then place a thick insulating foam underneath (or Lay-z-Spa Mat) before you put the tub together. This will help the tub keep the water warm.

Place the tub on the cover, attach the pump and inflate it until it looks as firm as it’s going to get then cover the valve again. Inflate the lid next then connect the pump to the hot tub. They need to be hand-tied. And don’t forget to keep the pump on the same as the hot tub! 

Screw the filter inside the hot tub. Once that’s done, fill the spa with water. And there should be a rough guide of maximum and minimum water required. Fill it up with cold water half way, and then fill the rest with hot water. This way it will be up to temperature a little bit faster! 

Safety

For a super-safe lazy spa hot tub spa you want to:

  • make sure you keep the water hygenic
  • keep an eye on those chemical levels by testing the water at least weekly
  • and keep your kids at arm’s length and safe from falling in the spa

You can do this by never leaving your children in the hot tub alone under any circumstances. One thing I was happy about is that the chemicals we used in the Lay Z Spa didnt affect our little ones in any way, either on their skin or breathing etc.

Make sure you keep the equipment clean with regular washes.  Also add stabiliser to your chlorine if it’s outdoors, and check the levels if more than three people use the hot tub at once and after a lot of rain. The water will dilute with the rain, so you want to make sure the chemicals haven’t dissipated.

Frequently Asked Questions On Lay-Z-Spa Hot Tubs
