M Spa Model B-130 Camaro Inflatable Spa Review

This blow up hot tub can fit 4 people at once, enough room for the whole family to relax and unwind with a nice bubble massage. The inflatable base is comfortably padded and offers individual seat cushions to make each guest feel as comfortable as possible in their seating area. The shell of the B-130 Camaro is a synthetic PVC leather material giving it a very sleek and modern look. The body is built to be very solid with its durable I-beam structure technology and individual air chambers, it can stand up to someone leaning or sitting on the edge without collapsing.

If you thought it would be difficult to get an inflatable spa set up, you would be wrong. The M Spa features a smart inflation system that will fill the inflatable hot tub in minutes, ready to be filled with water. It is as simple as connecting the included pipe to both ends and pressing the bubble inflation button and it will inflate all by itself. The same system it uses to inflate the hot tub is used as the bubble jets as well. The camaro features 110 small bubble jets powered by a 1 horsepower air blower to provide the needed turbulence. The stream of air bubbles around will assist you in relaxing after a long day.

All the features of this inflatable spa are easily accessible by the built-in, easy to use control box. There are a total of 6 buttons that give you complete control over the temperature, bubbles, and filter activation, all with the touch of a button. The attached heater will increase the temperature to a maximum 104 degrees F. The temperature will rise at a rate of 1.5 – 2 degrees every hour it runs, so plan to warm it for several hours before your first use and after that, it will always be available as long as it’s running. In addition to everything listed above, included in the packing is also the owner’s manual, an instructional DVD, a garden hose adapter, 2 filter cartridges, a cover, and a heat preservation mat.

Pros & Cons of M Spa Model B-130 Camaro Inflatable Spa

Pros: This small inflatable spa is a great alternative to a permanent hard shell hot tub that allows budget minded individuals the therapeutic benefits without the high cost of acquisition and installation. The self cleaning water filtration system makes the hot tub maintenance trivial, and the smart inflation feature will ensure that setup is quick and no nonsense. The material is very durable as far as inflatable hot tubs go, so you can be sure you will get plenty of usage from this before seeking repairs or a replacement. The included inflatable cover comes complete with locks to ensure there is no unauthorized usage of your inflatable spa overnight. The design is also very attractive with its black leather PVC exterior and white trim.

Cons: The size is a little smaller than some of the larger 6 person inflatable hot tubs. Also, being made with vinyl, you can expect that this will not hold the long term durability that the hard shell permanent hot tubs boast. But the pricing really counters that, I feel.

Coleman Lay-Z Spa Inflatable Hot Tub

Measuring in at 76 inches across and 28 inches tall, this Coleman branded Lay-Z Spa holds 254 gallons of water at 80% capacity. The materials used is a double layer of PVC reinforced by a 3rd layer of polyester mesh between the 2 layers. The walls on the Coleman Lay-Z Spa inflatable hot tub use an I-Beam construction technique, making them extra sturdy. They can support someone sitting or leaning against the wall without it bending or buckling. The outside of the tub has been coated with a synthetic leather-like material that increases it’s durability against punctures. Unfilled, the unit weighs about 86 pounds, so while a little heavy, definitely not bad as far as inflatable hot tubs go. The tub will comfortably hold 4 adults, and you can even get up to 6 if you squeeze together. Also featured is a cushioned ground mat that not only adds an extra layer of comfort for those sitting in the tub, but it also will keep the underside of the tub clean and protected from dirt and debris.

The combo heater and pump uses a digital display to adjust the temperature up to a maximum of 104 F. The unit heats at a rate of 2 – 3 degrees per hour, so unless you tap into your hot water heater to load the tub, it will need to heat overnight to reach the maximum temperature. Just be sure to set the inflatable hot tub up at least 1 day before you want to use it, and it will be ready for you. The pump can also be used as an air blower to inflate hot tub. The air blower is also what provides air for the tubs 120 bubble jets. Be sure to watch the air gauge when inflating your tub to avoid over inflation. There are valves built into the tub to assist in inflating your tub easily, and they help to keep the your tub from deflating when you disconnect the pump. Also included is a special tightening wrench that will allow you to tighten the valves over time to prevent any growing air leaks.

This inflatable hot tub also includes a fitted cover, finished with the same green Coleman branded material as the tub. The cover features a foil lining which helps to keep the water extra warm when not in use. Under the cover is an inflatable disc that sits on top of the tub to prevent the cover from sagging or holding rain water or other debris. Around the outside of the tub, there are several built in buckles to secure the cover, as well as handles for moving the tub (when it’s empty).

Lastly, the Coleman Lay-Z Spa inflatable hot tub includes a few extras for hot tub maintenance and warranty. You get 1 filter cartridge, a patch kit, a chemical floater, and an instructional DVD that overs all the maintenance and setup. The warranty covers the pump and heater for 1 year, the inflatable hot tub for 90 days, and all the hoses and fittings for 30 days. Be sure to inspect everything thoroughly once it’s setup and continue for the first month so you can report any issues promptly to get them repaired or replaced.
