How Much Does The Barbados AirJet Cost To Run?

Does The Barbados AirJet Have A Warranty & UK Support Team?
Our standard warranty is 12 months on the pump and 6 months on the cover, liner and inflatable lid. This warranty can be extended (by registering on our website) to 24 months on the pump and 12 months on the cover, liner and inflatable lid. We have a free UK based support team who are fully trained to help Lay-Z-Spa owners.
Does The Lay-Z-Spa Barbados AirJet Plug Into A Normal UK Socket?
Yes, all Lay-Z-Spas are designed to plug into a standard UK 13amp/240V electrical supply. We advise that you always use an RCD protected socket (like those installed in your home) and not an extension lead. The Barbados AirJet comes with a 7 metre power cable.
Does the Lay-Z-Spa Barbados come with a cover?
Yes, all Lay-Z-Spas come with a secure-locking protective cover to prevent debris from entering the water and improve heat retention. All our hot tubs also include an inflatable lid which helps to maintain water temperature when the spa has been switched off and helps it heat faster.
Do You Need To Put Chemicals In The Water?
Yes, it is essential to use chemicals in your Lay‑Z‑Spa. We recommend ClearWater Chemicals which are designed with Lay-Z-Spas in mind. Read our Chemicals Guide for help with chemical maintenance.
Can You Put The Barbados AirJet Indoors?
Lay-Z-Spas are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. Most Lay-Z-Spa customers set them up in their gardens, either on the grass, patio, decking or in their summer house. If setting up on artificial grass, we recommend using rubber matting and/or shoes to reduce static. For indoors, you should consider factors such as drainage and ventilation.
How Long Does The Barbados AirJet Take For The Water To Heat Up When You First Fill It?
This can vary depending on the temperature of fresh water that goes into your spa and the ambient air temperature. On a typical summer’s day in the UK, it can take on average 6-12 hours to heat the water to 40°C. Once the water is up to your desired temperature, the pump can be left on, efficiently heating the water.
Can I Control My Barbados AirJet Using WiFi?

What Is Freeze Shield™ And How Does It Work?
Designed to automatically increase water circulation around the pump, the system prevents water freezing, so you can enjoy your hot tub all year round. The Freeze Shield™ is a built-in feature to the pump, and is activated so long as there is a power supply to the unit. As soon as the pump detects the temperature of the water has dropped to 4°, the heating system activates to bring the temperature to 10° (which is the temperature to be safe for the Spa to operate at).
How Does The 2-Level Massage Regulation Work?
This feature allows you to change the amount of power used by the AirJet function to either full power or 50%. This means you can reduce the amount of power being used by the massage system without causing a significant reduction in performance. The intensity changes through a cycle when pressing the AirJet button on your Lay‑Z‑Spa control panel. The intensity will change from 100% to 50% and then back to 100% continuing in this cycle every time the AirJets are turned off and back on again.
