I am happy with the 104-degree temperature. It is hot and I feel immediately soothed and relaxed. I was not expecting it to feel this warm because the reviews said it would not get extremely hot but it is hot enough for my husband and I. I live in a warmer climate and have it outdoors on a wood platform between it and the cement and it is protected under a balcony. It has stayed 104 consistently even in chillier temperatures around 42-50 degrees. It has dropped to strangely cold temps here a few days and it still does great and keeps it up. This is not designed for climates that are consistently under 40 degrees.
Set up was fairly easy and I pulled up some videos on the website by looking up Miami Jet. I am very happy it has a nice cover and the hot tub inflates itself with the heat pump provided. I have the chemicals needed and am finding it easy enough to maintain and not entirely difficult to understand. I ordered a chemical kit that had the necessities. I have wanted this tub for two years and I am actually happier then I thought I would be. The bottom is comfortable and thicker than expected. Its really quite nice and we have had company enjoy it as well. It surpasses my expectations at this point. I will continue to update in the following months.
Update- I have had this hot tub for several months now and my husband and I use it daily and sometimes more than one a day on the weekends (morning, afternoon, night) The bubbles are fantastic and the temp is quite hot. 104 is hot. I am so happy and thankful we have this. It is easy to take care of with chemicals and the filters are easy to change. We take the cover off together usually but its decently easy to take it off by myself and put it back on. So nice.
Update- we have had it for over half of a year and we use it every single day. It’s easy to care for and I use Bromine instead of clorine. I read Bromine withstands heat better.
Update- at the 9 month mark the hot tub heater began to leak. This has a full one year warranty and I was assisted with the issue quickly. Iwould buy this tub again. I still use it every single day as does my husband.
Update- if you ever get an Eo2 reading you may need to change the impeller. This is easy enough and it is called the active aqua impeller 400 gph. I used this on the old pump that was leaking and fixed it.
They do not fix parts on pumps. They send out a new pump if yours breaks under warranty. I fixed the internal part myself by watching a few YouTube videos. Just a heads up if it's outside of warranty.
Update two years now- we moved and brought the hot tub with us. It survived and we are still using it every night. It's even better this time of year when it's cold. We would order again.
