Compact and cheap. This is what SaluSpa Miami AirJet is.
It may be cheap but the experience says otherwise. In fact, This model is actually included on our list of the best 2 person inflatable spa.
Still, something’s got to give with such a low price, which is what we’ll be revealing in this detailed review.
Having the right expectations is important to get the most out of anything you purchase, especially with inflatable hot tubs. In the next sections, you’ll gain a clear understanding of what (and what not to) expect with this model.
Product Features & Actual Benefits
SaluSpa Miami Airjet is manufactured by Bestway, the same company that manufactures Coleman’s inflatable hot tub, so they’re very experienced with these products. As a matter of fact, they’re one of the leading brands when it comes to all things inflatable.
This inflatable hot tub is part of their AirJet product line, which is known for being affordable. It makes this model a great choice for first-time buyers.
It comes with a bubble jet massage system which effectively gives a light massage all throughout your soaking body. An amazing experience especially after a long stressful day.
If you don’t feel like having a massage, you can keep it turned off and just soak yourself in hot water. Every unit comes with a built-in heating system so you can have the spa waiting for you when you get home.
Read on if you want to know more about the technical details and how they benefit you to have a relaxing time. You’ll also learn about the limitations of this spa so you can decide if this is really worth your money.
Holds Up To 4 Adults
The inflated dimension for SaluSpa Miami is 71 x 26 inches. It can indeed accommodate up to 4 persons. The comfort level will depend on the persons’ height and frame. 4 people with medium build would surely be able to sit together without any contact, with legs folded.
However, this hot tub is especially great for 2 people. They can have enough legroom to stretch their legs and perform simple leg exercises.
If space is an issue, this inflatable spa can easily fit any garage. The compact design makes it truly portable if you need to move it.
Rapid Heating System
The Miami AirJet’s control unit is designed to heat up the hot tub’s water up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit, at a rate of around 2 degrees Fahrenheit per hour.
This is kinda slow if your water’s starting temperature is cold. To somehow compensate for this, Bestway has provided an insulated cover, which is to be used while you’re heating it up. You can also initially fill the hot tub up with an already warm water.
It may not go as hot as the ones in professional spas, but the maximum temperature would be more than enough for most people. Some people get dizzy and nauseated with hotter water temperature, especially those with hypertension.
Water Filtration System
The water filtration system for this inflatable spa is handled by its built-in filters. There’s no additional water treatment system installed, like hard water or salt water treatments.
For such a low price point, though, I have no complaints if it’s somewhat lacking compared to other more expensive models. It might not be a saltwater inflatable spa, but it still gets the job done by keeping the water clean.
Saluspa Miami also includes a chemical floater where you can place your chlorine or bromine tablets.
Easy To Operate Digital Control Panel
The digital control panel is situated on top of the control unit. With the control unit being attached to the side of the hot tub, you should be able to easily reach it while you’re seated inside.
The buttons are mostly toggled, so there’s no on and off button for the features you want to use. You will have it to press it once to activate, say the bubble jets, then press again to deactivate it.
Lay-Z Massage System
SaluSpa Miami AirJet was previously called as Lay-Z Spa Miami AirJet because of the massage system it’s installed with. It’s the same for other SaluSpa models.
This inflatable spa has a single massage system installed, but it is just as effective in giving light massage throughout the body. They are lined at the bottom perimeter of the tub, so if you sit against the wall, you’ll get a soothing upper body massage.
If you’re looking for a more powerful hydro massage jets, you will have to settle for the more expensive ones.
Easy To Setup, No Tools Needed
Basically, you will not inflate the hot tub, fill it in with water, turn on the heater, and enjoy.
You do not need to buy a separate pump for inflating it. The control unit used for the heater and jets is the same unit that you will use for pumping it up.
Can You Run Both Heater And Jets At The Same Time?
The bubble jets operate by sucking in outside air and blowing it in. This can significantly lower the water’s temperature if it’s quite cold outside.
Unfortunately, this model does not allow more than 1 function to run simultaneously. Once you turn the heater on, the bubble jets will turn itself off.
Honestly, I do not find this an issue at all with my own inflatable spa. I do not run my bubble jets continuously for long periods of time anyway. It also only lowers it by 2 to 3 degrees.
Can You Use It During Winter?
Being able to relax, soaking in hot water during winter is one of the best experiences you can get in a hot tub. Depending on your location, using the hot tub during the winter season may or may not be possible.
The most important thing you will need to consider is that all inflatable hot tubs are constructed with materials that can only withstand cold temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
In case you’re located where winter temperatures can go down below 40, you actually have 2 options. The first option is that you can move your spa in a shed where it can get insulated. Just be sure to consider the drainage and humidity.
The second option is to wrap your hot tub and its insulated cover with a styrofoam. This will keep the hot tub’s body from freezing up, allowing you to use it outside during the cold months.
How Easy Is It To Maintain?
Maintaining SaluSpa Miami Airjet is the same as any other pool. You basically need to keep the water clean with the filter cartridges and the pH level balanced with chlorine or bromine tablets.
These tablets and the filter cartridges are the additional expenses you will incur in maintaining the hot tub, aside from the $50 to $80 increase in your monthly electricity bill (with regular use).
If you need to brush the walls, you can easily drain the water out by attaching the garden hose to the adapter in the tub. There is another drain valve at the bottom to drain any remaining water.
What Is The Warranty And How Is The Customer Support?
One of the reasons why this model of SaluSpa continues to sell well is because of the customer support that buyers experience in case a part breaks down. As long as you’re still under warranty, Bestway’s customer service will send you a replacement, provided you can give them pictures as proof of the issue.
The manufacturer’s warranty is as follows:
- 1 Year from date of purchase for the spa pump
- 6 Months from date of purchase for the spa pool
Be sure to register your purchase and keep the original receipt in case you need to call for customer assistance in the future.
Who Should Buy SaluSpa Miami AirJet?
If you’re planning to buy this for yourself only, this will be a great choice too. There’s nothing like going home from work after a demanding day with this hot tub waiting for you. You can unwind easily as you immerse yourself in hot water, while lightly being massaged by rolling bubbles.
SaluSpa Miami AirJet received a high rating from Amazon customers. About 80% of them gave high ranking reviews, while 15% gave 1 to 2 stars rating.
The most common reasons why some consumers gave such low rating is because of either their pumps not lasting longer than 4 months or they start to experience leaks after a few months use.’
