I AM RE PUBLISHING THIS GUIDE WITH AN OVERVIEW OF THE THREE MODELS:

UPDATE AS OF JULY 2009 - WE ARE NOW ON A SERIES 3 THE PUMP IS NOISY AND ITS NOT HEATING PROPERLY ***YET AGAIN*** YOU DONT ACTUALLY BUY AND OWN ONE OF THESE SPAS ITS MORE OF A RENTAL WITH THE 12 MONTH WARRANTY BEING SOME KIND OF ASSURANCE YOU WILL GET AT LEAST A YEAR:

SERIES 1 *MY RATING 9 OUT OF 10 >GREAT BUT HEATERS POP ! KEEPS WARM WHISLT BLOWING TOO - SUPERB BEST SPA MADE - RELIABLILITY = CHRONIC
GREAT SPA , FAB HEATER GOT PROPER HOT TO 40 DEGREES DIDNT CUT OFF AFTER 24 HOURS DIGITAL HEATER WAS HEATING AT 40 DEGREES AND THE CUT OFF WAS 41 WHICH STOPPED THE HEATER , IT WOULD HEAT AND BLOW AT THE SAME TIME SO DINT GO COLD, ELEMENTS PACKED UP REGULAR

SERIES 2 *MY RATING 8 OUT OF 10 >NOT TOO BAD , IS COOLER AND WONT HEAT AND BLOW - SO WATER GOES COLD FIRLY QUICK - USABLE = RELIABILITY = CHRONIC
OH DEAR THEY HAVE SPOTTED THERE IS A PROBLEM IN DESIGN SO THEY MAKE IT SO THE BLOWER OR HEATER ONLY OPERATE 1 AT A TIME, <EITHE OR> SO SPA GOES COLD COMPARED TO SERIES 1 , ALSO HEATER CUTS OUT WHEN IT CLICKS FROM 39 TO 40 SO A FULL 1 DEGREE LESS THE THE ORIGINAL , BUT OIT DOES GET TO A GOOD TEMERATURE ALBEIT 1 DEGREE BELOW THA FAB SERIES 1 

SERIES 3 *MY RATING 6 OUT OD 10 > HATE IT , THE SPA IS TEPID IT CUTS OFF EVERY 24 HOURS WATER IS COLD SPA IS SMALLER SPA IS NOW DISAPOINTINGLY BAD BECAUSE F COMPRIMISES MADE TO IMPROVE RELIABILITY , RELIABILITY IS IMPROVED BUT AT WHAT COST??? CANT RECOMEND YOU BUY ONE NOW.
 SOME KIND OF HEAT ELEMENT AND TEMP MONITOR REDESIGN MAYBE WITH SOME KIND OF LOAD BALANCING WHICH ,AY EXPLAIN WHY ITS THE MOST UTTERLY USELESS SPA YET AT BEING HOT - ACTULLY ITS NOT PROPER HOT ITS JUST ABOUT BEARABY TEPID.
HEATERS STILL POPPING ALL OVER THE SHOP STILL SO THE APPEAR TO HAVE USED A LOWER WATTAGE ELEMENT - TAKES LONGER TO HEAT AND IS CONSIDERABLY PANTS AT GETTING HOT , THE WATER ITSELF (CHECK WITH A HOME BODY THERMOMETER) WILL READ ABOUT 36 TO 37 NOT THE 40 DEGREES CLAIMED , IT CUTS OF WHEN IT CLICKS TO 40 ANYWAY, NOW THEY INCLUDE A TIMER SO THAT THE PUMP TURNS OFF AFTER 24 HOURS BY ITSLEF - SO YOU HAVE TO RESET IT EVERY SINGLE DAY - (CRAP!)
BESTWAT SERVICE WILL SAY RE TEMP "THE READING IS THE TEMERATURE MEASURED FROM INSIDE THE PUMP - NOT THE TEMP OF THE WATER" WHICH IS BULLCR*P IN THE EXTRMEME THE ORIGINAL USED TO BE 40 DEGREES WATER TEMP, I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT I HAVE MEASURED ALL 3. ALSO THE OUTER TUB IS NOW A BIT SMALLER - AGAIN TRYING TO RELIEVE STRAIN ON THE PUMP AND HEATER ONE WOULD CONCLUDE. PUMP CUTS OFF AFTER 24 HOURS - PUMP AND BLOWER OPERATE SEPERATLY STILL.
IF THEY DILUTE THE PRINCLIPLE OF THIS SPA ANY MORE IT WILL BE UTTERLY CRAP.

SO PEOPLE - GREAT CONCEPT SPOILED BY 3 REVISIONS TO IMROVE RELIABILITY AND LESSEN WARRANTY CLAIM COSTS.
BESTWAY CUSTOMER SERVICE ARE SUPERB AT IMPLYING YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG TO BREAK IT MY MISUSE AND WILL INVITE YOU TO TAKE IT INSIDE FOR A CUP OF TEA AND SOME BISCUITS TO SEE IF IT MAGICALLY COMES BACK TO LIFE ***JOKERS*** AHHH HAAA  AND YOUR NEW PUMP WILL BE ON A SLOW BOAT FROM CHINA AND THEY WONT KNOW WHEN THEY CAN SEND YOU A NEW ONE , AND HWNE THEY DO (ABOUT 2 TO 4 WEEKS) YOU WILL HAVE TO FIGHT TO EXTEND YOUR WARRANTY

ANYWAY PEOPLE THIS WILL DEFINATELY BE MY LAST EVER LAY-Z-SPA I HAVE HAD ENOUGH COMPLETELY IT IS NOW A 6 OUT OF 10 PRODUCT

BESTWAY LAY-Z-SPA HOT TUB REVIEW:
I have owned all 3 models over the past 2 and half years and you can take it from me these things are a great item but absolutely unreliable with the main fault being that that the heater element within the pump fails on average about every 3 to 7 months.

REALITY CHECK: If you buy one of these items you should be aware that you are NOT actually purchasing an item which you will own for some years  you are effectively buying a long term rental before the pump fails (and it will) you will be protected by the warranty so you will get at least 12 months with periods of non use whilst you are waiting for your new pump (insists bestway EXTEND your warranty for the time you were without the pump)

I carried on with the spa because it was cheaper than renting one... simple...

Also please be aware of your Consumer RIGHTS on the breakdown and replacement:

A product should last a "resonable" amount of time in its lifetime before failure if it does not you can go to the small claims court to get a new one / refund or part refund up to  6 years after buying the item or having it replaced. (YES TRUE - NOT WELL KNOWN BUT 100% true in the UK)
SO ... you would win an argument that went like this ....
1) bestway guarantee their pumps for 12 months so they clearly expect them to last at least this long
2) your pump was replaced at 6 months with a new pump THERFORE this item regardless of being in guarantee should last at LEAST this long and bestway should honour this
3) bestway may win an argument that a finacial ajustment in their favour based on average full product life should be applied based on use i.e. product should last 5 years and it lasted 1 , so they may expect you to pay one fith of the cost of a new replcement

I AM NOT WRONG ON THE ABOVE , Also you can claim back the cost of a small claims court action... so in essence you have nothing to lose.
 
I personally think that bestway should warrant their replcement pumps for say 3 months or so regardless of gurantee date.

It will take a few people to Small Claim them before they stop telling people to get lost 2 days out of guarantee

DONT LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT PEOPLE = THERE IS A OBVIOUSLY A DESIGN FLAW IN THESE PUMPS
