Relax With These Hot Features
The SaluSpa Palm Springs features a Digital Control Panel to make operating your spa easy. Just set the temperature you desire (up to 104 degrees F) and activate the SaluSpa Massage System for a relaxing and comfortable spa experience.
Superior Strength and Durability
The Palm Springs’ leatheroid and puncture resistant exterior is made with a TriTech 3 ply reinforced material, featuring a polyester mesh core encased in two layers of PVC, for extra strength and durability not available on many other inflatable spas.
Sturdy I-Beam Construction
The SaluSpa Palm Springs’ walls are constructed to offer extra durability and strength with engineered puncture-resistant, I-Beam construction. This allows users to sit on the sides without the spa bending or buckling, making this product superior to others in its class.
Cushioned Air Pad Floor
The SaluSpa Palm Springs features a separate air pad cushioned floor which sits underneath the spa. On top of the additional comfort under foot and backside, this helps with insulation and minimizing the loss of heat through the base of the spa.

This inexpensive hot tub suddenly gets pretty expensive when you have to keep replacing it at your cost.
PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT or you will be sorry...yes there are lots of 5 star reviews including our original review.
As a follow-up: I took it apart and found a leaking plastic part that contains a flow switch (to make sure water is flowing before letting heater come on). I opened that and found a bad gasket and casting that allowed it to leak
I again contacted Bestway but they said they did have any parts for repair whatsoever...I took it all apart, found an O-ring that fit and put it all back together but soon found a second leak deeper down in the unit. So now it still leaks but at a slower rate so maybe it can run for a couple of days before adding water.
+ This inflatable hot tub is non-permanent and much easier to get it placed and moved where you would like it.
+ Low entry price makes it more affordable to have a hot tub.
+ 120 air jets help create a soothing massage. Air jets are not as drying to the skin as water jets.
+ Inflatable vinyl-leather cover has easy to use clip-on straps, and is supposed to help prevent heat loss.
+ The inflatable hot tub comes with a cushioned floor mat (giant vinyl bubble-wrap) which is supposed to help with protecting the hot tub and also help with insulation. It is also more comfortable when in the hot tub.
+ This is a good sized hot tub that can fit 4-6. The interior diameter is approximately 57" The walls are approximately 9" thick. Lesser quality inflatable hot tubs have walls 7-8" thick.
+ Lay-z-spa also makes a co-branded unit with Coleman based off their Miami (2-4 person) model. This Palm Springs model is an improvement in both sturdiness and design for the inflatable part. The motor unit and all accessories are otherwise identical.
+ This unit can be directly plugged into an 110v outlet. There is no need for hardwiring. There are 220v versions but I think that they are primarily marketed in Europe.
- The hot tub is inflatable and getting in and out could be tricky for the infirm.
- Hot tubs and jacuzzis are noisy. This one is no exception.
- This style of hot tub is more of a sit upright type of hot tub instead of a lounging type of hot tub. Adding ($) an inflatable pillow for neck support does make it better.
- The nature of inflatable hot tubs is that they are not very good insulators so expect the water to loose heat much more quickly than a regular hot tub.
- Inflatable hot tubs also generally don't heat the water as warm as traditional hot tubs. The Lay-z-spa is no exception and only heats to 104F (40c)
- Inflatables do leak air slowly, so expect to detach the hose and top-off the air every 7-14 days. This is normal.
- The inflatable cover also leaks air and needs to be topped-off. Again, this is normal but nonetheless annoying.
- Maintenance cost and effort is similar to that of a traditional tub.
- Chlorine tablets are needed for the floating chemical puck are available online but not easy to find in brick and mortar shops. These tables are also more expensive than regular chlorine.
- Emptying the water from the hot tub (to change water) via the garden hose drain attachment is just as slow if not slower than filling it up. To speed up this process, additional submersible pump is needed.
- As the material is vinyl, there is a certain amount of off-gassing. The scent will be more noticeable when the hot tub is heated.
- The safety and auto-shut of thermostat is set for the lowest external operating temperature of 40F (lower than 40F water starts to freeze). So this Lay-z-spa is not meant for winter time use. However the season can be extended by warming up the air around the pump with a heater to encourage it to work. Once the water is heated, the surrounding temperature will rise slightly and help keep the pump going.
- It seems that the pump unit can be used for bubbles or for heat but not both at the same time. The solution is to alternate heating and using the bubbles.
* The product box is 90-lbs so be prepared to have a hand truck or help moving it to where you would like to open it.
* The box includes: an instructional DVD, emergency patch kit, floating chemical puck, monometer, Filter (size IV).
* Spa chemicals are not included.
* Things that are nice to have on hand to start are Bestway's Chemical Starter Kit, a study step tool to help get in and out of the hot tub, a folding tray table for outside the hot tub or a floating tray for inside the hot tub for beverages and snacks and an inflatable hot tub pillow for neck support.
* Some sort of sturdy platform to put the Lay-z-spa on: floating deck, wood patio tiles from Ik*a, foam tiles, kitchen gel mats to help distribute the weight a little more evenly and to provide a little bit more cushion and insulation.
* Maintenance requires Bestway Lay-z-spa filters (size IV) that roughly need to be cleaned or replaced every 2 weeks, chemicals (bromine or chlorine), hot tub/pool scent crystals/salts to decrease the chlorine smell if it bothers you.
* Round patio table covers also fit the hot tub as temporary covers.
* Weber Smoker cover and standard chimnea covers fit the pump unit.
* All hot tubs take a while to heat up the water. The Lay-z-spa takes the same amount of time to heat up the water (overnight) as a traditional spa. Filling with warm/hot tap water will decrease the time it takes to heat the water.
This is a very good inflatable hot tub. It is built of heavier duty materials than its predecessors and competitors. It is attractively priced and convenient to set up, take down and move. However it does require almost as much time, effort and money for its maintenance as a regular hot tub. There are other additional hidden costs for accessories to personalize your hot tub. However, I would still recommend this Lay-z-spa for those that need something non-permanent.
Purchased this hot tub in the spring and used it all summer, it's still up in October but I'll probably take it down soon before it starts getting really cold. One of my favorite purchases ever outside of lasik eye surgery. They recommend having it up in no colder than 40 degrees F. I've only had it up for 4 months so I can't speak to the long term reliability, but it's worked great so far.
I'll keep the overview brief since other reviews cover it:
-Heats up 2-3 degrees per hour and definitely hot enough for my preference (my optimal temp is 102). Temp sometimes drops about 1 or 2 degrees after being in for an hour
-Very comfortable. I'm 6'3" and was pleasantly surprised. The bottom is padded and comfy. I've fit 5 adults in the hot tub. Very cozy but still very fun.
-set up was even easier than I expected, and I expected it to be easy
-very sturdy. I'm over 200lbs and can sit on the sidewall
-bubbles are a nice little gimmick but cool down the hot tub very quickly. They are nice however to stir around the water when shocking the hot tub
-I paid less than 400 and it was worth every penny
Ok, now the good stuff:
Pool chemicals: I walked into a pool store and she said it wou be 120 to get started. Yeah, forget that. I ended up doing some research online and figured out how to do it in $20 with supplies from Walmart and test strips from Walmart. I've had it up for 4 months with no health issues and haven't had to replace water yet and no overpowering smells.
The main 4 elements of pool chemistry are free chlorine, alkalinity, pH level, and regular organics killing (shock). Keep in mind this hot tub is about 250 gallons so you do calculations for chemicals based on that.
Testing: purchase a 50 pack of 3 way test strips for less than 10 bucks on Amazon. They recommend testing before each use of the spa, especially when starting out. Keep in mind the recommend bromine level for private spas is pretty low, just 2 ppm.
Free chlorine: use bromine for hot tubs, more stable than chlorine. Start with "bromine start" so you don't have to wait forever for the tablets to dissolve. It comes in a small square packet at walmart. Can also crush up bromine tablets to get same effect. Use bromine tablets to regulate bromine ongoing. Comes in a tall tube at Walmart. I fill the included floater almost halfway with tablets and set the opening about 25% open. See what works for you based on usage to get 2ppm. Cost for both: ~$10
Alkalinity: in Oregon, I often have lower alkalinity than recommended. This is easy, just add baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), a couple spoonfulls does the trick for me
pH level: raising alkalinity with baking soda also raises the pH level, so I actually never needed to worry about it as they seem to go hand in hand for me.
Organics (shock): I got Clorox Xtra blue 6-in-1 in a plastic container with a cap. Very easy, just toss in a capful (I measured out the exact level in grams, it's conveniently 1 cap). Do this once a week or more often with more usage.
There you have it, easy maintenance with a few supplies: 1) test strips 2) brom start & bromine tablets 3) shock 4) baking soda
Ymmv of course, so please so your own research to make sure your spa is healthy, especially if you aren't getting the desired test results. Don't forget to clean/replace filters when you notice the water pressure decrease from the pump. It'll heat slowly and eventually stop pumping if you let the filters get too jammed up.
I set this up from the get go, so I actually don't know how much this is helping, but to insulate the hot tub from the ground, I purchased 2 1 inch 4x8ft foam insulation boards and cut them down into a circle using the included ground cover as a template. About $20 from home Depot, product "R-Tech 1 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. R-3.85 Insulating Sheathing". This may be worth skipping, because I'm not sure if it'll be reusable after all the rain and not sure if it has saved me $20 on my electric bill. Maybe.
Top insulation: I haven't done this but probably will soon as it's getting colder. People recommend solar bubble covers on top to limit heat loss upwards (heat does not "always travel up" in a hot tub btw). I could see this being useful, the included cover is nice and inflated, but I'm sure extra insulation would help.
Anyway, there you have it. A quick review, tips for chemicals, and insulation tips if you wanna go that route. I love it, purchased the rebranded green Coleman hot tub for my parents (exact same model, different branding). They love it too. If you're on the fence, buy it, especially if you get it for a good deal.
