Advantages: Bubbles bubbles everywhere but not a drop to drink
I was having a look round Woolworths, as you do, when there it was the Woolworth Pampering BATH SPA Model BJ2000, and only 40 pounds. I have always wanted a BATH SPA, and the cost of having your bath replaced with a real one costs in the thousands of pounds. So I've been looking for a cheaper equivalent.
You may have seen advertised bath spa's. Well they do not come cheap, phoning up one of these companies, and the cost for one of these items is 250 pounds plus. I looked in the argos catalogue, and they were selling one for 100 pounds, so what a suprise when I saw this in Woolies, enough about the price more about the product. Look Ive even found it on the woolies web page for you, cause the search engine on it is naf, its under home/personal care(just in case the link below doesn't work).
This is what the splurg states
"Soothe away the stress of the day with this sensational Bath Spa! Simply fit the spa onto the side of your bath, plug it in and relax in your very own whirlpool of luxury. With its variable controls you can choose just the right setting for your ultimate relaxation experience, there is one drawback though.....you might never want to get out!"
Are they telling the truth?
Let's have a reality check shall we.
What do you get?
An insulated very long mains adapter, which you connect outside your bathroom, and trail the lead to the bath(comes with a long lead), you then clamp the spa device to the side of your bath like a vice, with suction cups on the side for extra strength.
Uh Oh this sounds dodgy?
Well that's what I thought, but if you read the instructions it all seems fairy safe. It is all well insulated and even if the actually machine falls into the bath, it states that is has been designed to withstand submersion for short periods of time. I
n reality if you clamp it on securely it doesn't really slip or slide anyway.
Do not use this machine if you have Tuberculosis tumors of anykind, inflammatuins, skin conditions, wounds, bruses, varicose viens, undeterminded calf pain. I think you get the picture, there is no point you buying the product only to read this in the instructions, and then have the hassle of returning it and buying a 10 Woolies pairs of socks.
So are you actually going to turn the thing on?
Woops, sorry there is a big on and off button at the top, a variable control button for different types of bubbles a fill line to fill the bath to the write level, and two dual jets, the can be moved if you want the two streams of bubble in two different directions.
It works gentle bubbles, streams of bubbles, you get the picture. It is nice, it is relaxing, a strange feeling at first, not quite a spa, but it is different and fun. Be warned only put a tiny amount of bubble bath in as this will produces tons of bubbles(to prevent you drowning from bubble bath bubbles(if that is possible))
What's the catch?
Yes there is a catch, it only seems to fit on the side of the bath not near the taps(maybe this is only my bath) so you get more of a sideways bubble action rather than a front of bath or back of bath, I'd be interested to find this out actually, am I the one with the strange bath??
How many times will you use it?
Well, hmm I've used it about 4 or 5 times in the last few months. Even though it is very simple to attach, I am lazy. Come on admit it most people are lazy, you do not want to get the machine clamped on, and it's not something you really want always stay attached to the bath(well not me anyway), it does state you clean it with mild detergant after each use, which again is hassle.
But yet I would suggest buy it, enjoy the fun, show it off to your friends and say
my only Bath Spa NA NA NA NA(and tell them is cost you 300 quid)
<br>And don't tell them it came from woolies. Your rep will go down.
p.s Remember read the instructions before you use it, it's not a toy, well not much.
