Good product. Enjoy it.
The product is well built. It is advisable to start with warm water. The heater is powerful enough to keep the water warm but not strong enough to heat the water from cold. My kid and I enjoy this very much. The bubble is very soothing. The massager (vibration) is a bit too noisy so I am not using it. Overall this is a good product so worth recommending this.
Purchased in April 2019 at Myer for $89.00.
FootSpa that really does heat the water!
This footspa really does heat the water. Other models and brands claim to heat the water but never actually achieve this claim, however, this model keeps water warm and can heat warm water up to around 40C. This is awesome for the colder weather.
There are press button controls that individually control the heat, bubbles and vibration, any combination of these modes can be on or off individually. There is also a timer for 30, 45, 60 min.
I put epsom salts into the footspa and this works well to relax my body muscles, as good as a bath.
Definitely try this footspa if you have been disappointed with other brands, your disappointment will end!
September 7th 2018 Update: Best foot spa ever
A FootSpa that does what it says
The HoMedics FB251 True Heat Water Spa Pedicure Foot Bath Spa Massager/Pumice Stone actually does heat the water. It has a pumice stone for if you need it - we didn't. The bubbles, vibration and heating of the water are just right. I got it for my wife, but I've snuck in a use or two of it when I bruised the underside of my foot... I could have sat there for hours if I could. Many other reviews of other products say they don't heat the water; this one does. Having just the heat and vibration on does let the water get a bit too warm sometim...es...but add in the bubbles and it's great. Simple buttons, simple interface... and with the timer you can fall asleep.. though it's probably safe to run it on a towel for drying your feet afterwards or for the few drops that might get splashed out by moving your feet around in the bubbles - depending on water level and foot size.

Questions & Answers
Can you put Epsom salts in this foot spa?
I sure do! It certainly gives me a good week relief of muscle soreness and cramps. After using with epsom salts for 2.5 years, I am starting to see some issues probably related to the quantity of salt in the water and I never flushed it out with fresh water afterwards. In hindsight, I should have. Issues I am seeing, the bubbles don't come out when the pump works. No a big drama, as I found the bubbles were too noisy when trying to listen to the TV! Heater doesn't seem to be as warm. Having said all this, I would definitely buy it again as it is much cheaper than going to a flotation centre.
I have put ginger in it. It works. I suggest wash immediately after use.
I have one of these. I've only used it twice and no the bubbles don't work. Any help?
