Saved my night, and my feet
on August 7, 2012
We had a challenging night last night, plumbing backing up and no plumber available until the next day. Everyone had to take cold cold showers in the back room and my feet were sore and swollen (I had so been looking forward to a bath!)
Then my husband found this hidden away in the garage (I received it as a gift years ago). It was so much better than I remembered! He filled it with hot water and turned it on. I added some peppermint foot soak :) and it was so nice i was tempted to sleep in the bathroom.
This unit is fabulous at the currently listed price (circa $25) so much so that I am tempted to order one as a back-up in case mine ever fails... or my daughter spirits it away to college.
Unlike some of the more expensive units, this one has heat. (Note: the heater will maintain the temperature after it is filled with hot water but will not bring it up to temp, or will take a very long time doing so). Still, given that some of the higher end units do not have this, it is a nice feature, and kept it warm for over an hour (as long as I had it on). It also has bubble jets and a massager (though all the massager does is vibrate). The bubble jets, however, turned my (typically non-foaming) soak into a bubble bath. I am in awe of what you get for the price (not knowing what the price was until I looked it up to review). I can not compare it to other "foot spas" but can say that it works very well, so much so that I came to write it up and recommend it before I knew the price, and am now tempted to buy a second!
