I like to relax after a long day of walking around with a bucket of hot water, but after a short while the water in the bucket goes cold and I have to change it. I got this Conair Bubbling Foot Spa from a Walmart store a few years ago and I simply love it! I work long hours and have to stand on my feet all day so when I get home I really need to relax. This foot spa is a great way for me to do that. First I have to pour the water into the container, whatever teperature I want to make it, then I plug it in and I am ready to go, there are gel pads on the bottom that are the shape of my feet and they are really comfortable by themselves. If you turn the bubbles on there is a splash gaurd, and it actually works, I can move my feet around a little bit and it still keeps the water inside. There are also massaging nods that are relaxing, along with the vibaration setting and the heating setting. The heating settin doesn't actually heat the water up, it will keep the temperature of the water you poured in there to begin with, it is very nice so you don't have to get up and change it every once in a while, just sit and relax your feet.
