My wife has started looking at getting a Inflatable Hot Tub.

She seen a CleverSpa Inyo and Lay-Z-Spa Miami both 2-4 people.

Has anyone had experience with these or any other to comment on the brands of which is the better with budget up to approx £500.

    Lidl have one this week as well

    Personally I wouldn't

    If you are wanting a hot tub, buy one that is going to last more then one or two occasions, the inflatable ones are not much more then a glorified paddling pool

    But thats my opinion
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    Thats what I been Googling about since posting.

    Some say if they are kept out of the Sun or not left out in Freezing weather, then they will last. But alot is to be desired with the air jets as some go from jets to bubbles over time.

    And as you say are paddling pools with no seats to really relax, otherwise if you're not that agile it will be fun to get out and may end up on "You've been Framed".

    I have a Lay z spa and this year will be its 4th year of use

    we empty it and make sure we dry it thoroughly at the end of each summer and store it somewhere dry. we paid around £200 pound for it and have to say I am thoroughly impressed with it and find the jets as powerful as the one at our local pool

    agreed if you are not agile its a big step to get into but i find some of the big ones awkward due to the placing of steps etc

    Aldi has been doing these for the last 3 years with considerable success, judging by the reviews. Latest release was last week: https://www.aldi.co.uk/spa-pool/p/098043271174200

    I would stay away from CleverSpa - we bought one recently that only worked for about 6 or 7 weeks, we have been emailing and have been ignored and they've switched off their customer service phone line. If you look at their FB page you'll see stacks of complaints from other customers in the same boat as us. B&Q had originally said they would just refer us back to CleverSpa, but as we're having no luck there we're going back to B&Q today to ask for a full refund...

    Further to the above, B&Q have advised that they will no longer be accepting returns of hot tubs (I can only imagine the numbers of faulty CleverSpas they've had to deal with lately!) so I have submitted a complaint via Citizens Advice.

    I would have thought if I am correct.
    You brought the tub from B&Q who are responsible, not the 3rd party CleverSpars ??

    Lay z spa has been great for us, best thing we bought last year! It gets used a few times a week, and it's great for either relaxing after a stressful day, and also for soothing my neck and back if I have pains.

    The warranty is great for Lay z spa, if you register on line when you buy, they extend it from 1 year to 2 years. And as long as you adhere to their instructions on use (e.g. do not leave in direct sunlight) then they will replace if you have any issues. I've not had to do this myself, but have seen many people on spa forums who have gone through this process and found it to be easy.

    I've only had mine since August, but from what I've read it feels like they tend to last at least 3 or 4 years, sometime longer. I'll be very happy if mine gets anywhere near that!

    we had our pump replaced under guarantee after 15 months, was pretty easy tho you did have to make sure it was securely wrapped, luckily we still had the original box
    ours is on its 5th year but yesterday the liner split ☹️   To be fair it’s in all full sun tho we do pack it away every winter.    Hopefully the repair kit will arrive soon as am missing it already
