There are few fancier accessories to add to your Lay Z Spa inflatable hot tub than a dazzling set of LED lights, and what’s best about these devices is that you don’t necessarily have to have bought a model with lights to benefit from this feature!
Lay Z Spa has created its own range of quality lighting accessories, most of which can be fitted to any currently available Lay Z Spa model.
But let’s find out how to fit Lay Z Spa LED lights to your inflatable hot tub!
How To Put LED Lights In Lazy Spa
The most commonly found Lay Z Spa lighting accessory is their underwater LED light. It is a handy little device that screws directly into the housing that holds your Chem Connect dispenser.
This vibrant little accessory produces seven colours across two lighting modes, all of which can be cycled through using a single button.
Here’s how to get Lay Z Spa’s underwater LED light up and running!
1. Insert the batteries.
The underwater LED light takes 3 x AAA batteries, not included, though we’re sure you’ve got some knocking around in your bits and bobs draw!
To install the batteries, you’ll need to undo a single screw on the back and remove the housing; here, you’ll find the battery slot.
Pop them in and make sure to reseal the housing before tightening the screw back up.
2. Remove the debris screen.
Locate the Chem Connect dispenser on the inner wall of your Lay Z Spa and unscrew it by rotating the device anti-clockwise; this can be done in both a full and an empty hot tub.
Ensure to store the dispenser somewhere safe in case you need to reinstall it later; we recommend keeping it with your pool chemicals, so you don’t forget about it!
3. Install the light.
Take the LED light and screw it into the empty housing in a clockwise motion, making sure that the device is fully tightened and unlikely to fall out if accidentally knocked.
4. Set your lighting mode.
You’re now free to mess around with the colour settings!
The light blue centre button will turn the light on, and pressing this button again will allow you to choose between 7 fixed colours or an automatic colour-changing mode.
To turn the light off, press and hold the centre button for 3 seconds.
How To Fit Lazy Spa LED Strip lights
If you’re after a more powerful lighting system for your Lay Z Spa or need to replace the lights on your spa, Lay Z Spa also sells a 4m long LED strip.
This battery-powered lighting system takes 2 x CR2032 (3v watch) batteries and can be threaded through pre-existing loops in the base.
Although these LED strips are designed as replacements for those used in these four spas, they can be fitted to other hot tubs. Just make sure that the diameter of your spa is no larger than 190cm!
To install this LED light strip, you’ll just need to:
- Place the LED strip around the perimeter of your ground mat
- Secure the strip with clips or fasteners,
- Pop the hot tub on top
- Cycle through 7 fixed colours and a colour-changing mode using the remote control
What Are Lay Z Spa’s Colorjet LED Lights?
Lay Z Spa’s Colorjet LED light is compatible with all hydro-jet models and requires no batteries or external power as it uses the kinetic energy of flowing water to produce a vibrant light show!
Installing the Colorjet LED light is super simple.
- Remove the existing hydro-jet nozzle in the wall of your Lay Z Spa
- Insert the Colorjet light into the hole and twist clockwise to lock into place
- The light will burst into action as soon as the hydro-jets are powered on
- Twist the front casing to adjust the water flow and brightness
- Press the blue button to change the colour and lighting mode

Why Use Hot Tub Lights?
Our brains are wired to have physical reactions to colour, so it’s no surprise that exposing ourselves to different shades of light can have positive effects on our mood, physical health and emotions!
- Red – Power, strength, energy
- Orange – Joy, enthusiasm, happiness
- Yellow – Cheerfulness, spontaneity, intellect
- Green – Rest, rejuvenation, healing
- Blue – Stability, calmness, tranquillity
- Purple – Ambition, luxury, extravagance
- White – Purity, safety, cleanliness
2. Soothes nerves
Many styles of therapy use the soothing qualities of blue-hued lights to help soothe the nerves and brain; this colour of light can help us to relax and make the most of our daily soaks!
3. Relieves digestive disorders
Digestive disorders can be incredibly uncomfortable, but the hot tub’s warm water is known to provide a little relief; this effect can even be magnified by using red and yellow lights to stimulate the digestive system!
4. Pain-free therapy
Colour therapy is a pain-free alternative to injections and medication. Of course, you should never completely replace important medication with chromotherapy, but it can be a great way to assist in physical recovery.

Why are my LED lights not working?
The most likely reason for this is that the batteries need replacing, in which case you must make sure your light is completely dry before unscrewing the housing to replace them!
In the case of the Colorjet light, you should check that no water has breached the seal; though these lights are waterproof, the circuitry inside can still be damaged if there’s a crack in the casing.
How do you change the colour of the lights in a Lay Z Spa?
For the underwater LED and Colorjet lights, just press the button on the front to cycle through the colours, the LED strip comes with its own remote control from which you can select your desired colour!
There are loads more lights from other brands and you can also view other fun accessories for a hot tub on our main page. Depending on what you want to add to you’re hot tub, you could have a surround, drinks holder or maybe even a floor protector.
There we have it! That’s just about everything you need to know about Lay Z Spa’s range of hot tub lights; they’re super easy to install and even simpler to control!
Make sure you have the right batteries for each model and that they’re tightly sealed when you pop them into the water and be wary of 3rd party accessories as they may affect your warranty.
Most of all, we hope that you can enjoy some well-deserved chromotherapy in your newly illuminated Lay Z Spa hot tub!
