Foot Baths - heated foot bath. Bring the spa home with this heated foot spa and foot bath. There's nothing nicer than coming home to the perfect foot massage - especially one that doesn't come with the spa price tag. With the Aqua-Jet Foot Spa and Foot bath you can get soothing heat and power hydro jets to all the right places in your tired feet. Powerful jets are made to soothe tired feet. Slip your feet in and two powerful water jets get to work right away. Just choose your speed, sit back and enjoy as it works to increase circulation, relieve tight muscles and relax tired feet. But the relief doesn't end there - two rolling nodes provide kneading massage to your arches leaving no tired muscle untouched. No mess. No fuss. This roomy, oversized tub is designed to keep the water right where it belong- seven if you need to step away. Meanwhile the hot water control heats the water up to 115F and maintains the temperature so you never have to go running for hot water. And a removable pumice stone completes the spa experience. Use it to exfoliate rough, dry skin on your pads and heels, then remove easily for cleaning. Melt away the tension of tired feet with the Aqua-Jet Foot Spa.
I have had a job for the last nineteen years that requires me to stand on my feet for the majority of my workday. Recently, I noticed that at the end of my shift my feet HURT more than usual. They began to throb. Two weeks ago I decided to purchase a whirlpool foot spa similar to the one at the salon where I get my pedicures. I wanted to pamper and rejuvenate my arhing feet at home at my own convenience without the added cost of going to the nail shop. My criterion: (1)water level deep enough to immerse my ankles, (2)powerful water jets,and (3)a heating element that would enable the water to stay heated for periods up to two hours. The Aqua-Jet Foot Spa has met all my requirements. In addition, the handles make it very easy to move and lift the spa when full. This unit is a bit more expensive than the other foot spas on the market, however, well worth the money!
I received this product yesterday, and tried it out immediately. It has a much more powerful action than the Homedics spa it replaced, and the heater is very good at quickly returning the water to the desired temperature. The foot rollers are pretty useless, as stated by a previous reviewer. I was disappointed to learn that I cannot put in any salts or soaks--even though the Amazon site has them listed under the spa. Brookstone's customer service told me I can't even put any liquid soap in, or the jets may clog. This takes a lot away from the pleasure of the home pedicure, hence my rating of only 3 stars.
I know - my husband's lazy. But that's just when he gets home. He's on his feet all day, so I thought that he would love a foot spa for Christmas. I did my research, and found this spa to be the highest rated, more bang for the buck. I was a bit wary shelling out as much as I did for this spa, when I could've experimented with the $40 spa around the corner at Bed, Bath & Beyond, but this looked to be the master of foot spas before you get to detoxification. A few things you should know before you buy this: 1. You cannot use any bath oil or salts. Don't be tempted by the upsale on your screen flaunting them in the herd instinct. Everyone who buys this foot bath with those tantalizing salts realizes when they actually look at the foot spa manual that you can't use them. You will risk ruining the product. If you don't like the luxury of add in products, then you're in the right place. 2. It takes FOREVER to heat. I mean it. My husband, though a sentient of patience at his job, just wants to relax when he gets home. A half an hour to heat seems a little much. In his view, it takes too long. If you want to do yourself or your loved one a favor, heat it up 30 min. before you plan to get it. Personally, I dump the salts in the bath and save myself some time. 3. The foot bath itself is ginormous. That can be a good thing if you have larger feet and want to save yourself from buying another product and having to send it back. However, it's bulky to store and hard to clean. My husband just left it in the hallway ;o(. For a petite lady like me, that meant I had to haul it up to the bathtub to dump it. And he hasn't used it since. 4. Don't be fooled by the lure of the "massagers". They're rollers at the bottom of the spa, that you have to move with your feet. Lame!Read more ›
We've owned this foot bath for well over a year. My husband bought it for me and picked it up at the Brookstone store, not online. Here's the pros and cons.
Pros: -feels wonderful, soothing, and really relaxes tired feet -Heats up beautifully...it will get HOT so I turn the heat on and off occasionally. -Solid and well-made -The remote is very convenient! (They only thing the remote doesn't control is how much air flow is in water.) -Really improves my husband's recent foot aches and problems (we think plantar fasciitis). We bought this before we knew of it. He says it really helps + stretching + quality foot inserts. -Depth of foot area is fine for me (U.S. size 10 women's and my husband U.S. 11) -Well worth the money, I am worried about even trying out a spa's foot bath: who knows what diseases are in there!
Cons: -With water, it is heavy and you have to be able to lift it in and out of the sink to your destination -I lightly rested my feet on top of the blue insert one day and was barely putting any weight on it and it now has a hairline crack. -Would be better with a 'foot bath' boy to lug it around for you. -I find I can only use this for 25-30 minutes max and my feet will start becoming swollen or irritated, so that's what I do. I use it for a short time, dry off, put on quality foot cream and socks, and relax! -I removed the loofah-like insert as I noticed it caught water underneath it (even when bath was empty) and created mold.
TIPS: -Never think of leaving water in it for an extended period of time. I got lazy for a while and left water in there for a week or so and man did I come back to a science experiment and the smell too!Read more ›
It must be very difficult to make a reliable foot spa. Noting the high failure rate described in reviews of other models, I bought this one for my wife. I concluded that the much higher price of this Brookstone model would be worth paying if the unit would last and perform better.
It did not. The first three times she used it, it worked well: it heated the water, the jets and remote operated correctly, and, although she didn't care for the bubbles, they functioned.
The next time she plugged it in, the unit failed to heat the water and would not change jet speeds.
We called the Brookstone service line; the agent told us to bring it to the nearest store for replacement. However, the sales managers at the Dulles Town Center store in Virginia curtly refused to cooperate, or even to contact customer service to work out an arrangement.
I'm willing to pay a premium for the promise of better functionality, higher reliability, and better service. Brookstone failed to deliver on this promise.
