Norvell auto vs Versa

Looking for a new spray booth. We have a versa at 1 salon, we do like it but it breaks a lot.
Tried the Mystic HD before, personally didn't love it but its an option.

Wondering about the Norvell Auto booth. I love Norvells solutions so this temps me, but I have never tried one. Anyone use one before? And pros an cons vs versa and mystic?

Thanks!

Re: Norvell auto vs Versa

Hey Tamara,

We've had our Auto Revolution 4 Plus model since October of 2013. We had one issue regarding the stepper motor on the arm that we couldn't fix. Cale was great to deal with and sent us a whole new spray arm and we haven't had an issue since.

My version is the 7 or 8 pass booth. They have since upgraded the pumps to push more volume and have added a wider nozzle on it which cuts the passes down to only 4 from the original 7 or 8. If you are purchasing new - they all come in the newer version. If it's used, I would suggest you check because the 4 pass is apparently an improvement.

The only disappointing thing I have heard is that Norvell is actually now allowing Original Versa owners to now compete with this booth by designing a Norvell Venetian jug that fits in to the Versa booth. I have Versa Spas all around me and that is a BIG reason I chose to go with the Norvell Auto Revolution.

It's concerning because I feel that they could possibly be moving away from the booth manufacturing business and just stick to selling juice. That's just a guess from my experience in this industry though. I will without a doubt lose some business over this because I have had clients drive from quite a far distance to use this booth and especially the solution .

If you PM me I can give you my contact information and you can ask away.

I will reply tomorrow with the differences I experienced between my Mystic HD and Auto rev. I don't have any more time now.

I've had the Norvell Auto Revolution for a year now and love it. Great result, easy to maintain, easy for the customers to use. We've been doing very well with it.

Re: Norvell auto vs Versa

I've had my Auto Revolution since July of 2012, In that time I've had a total of 2 issues, first the solenoid valve that controls when the spray starts plugged up after about a year of having it, and then about 3 months ago my control panel went bad. Both of these items as soon as I called Norvell they shipped new parts out no questions asked.
As far as the color and how well it works, We have had a number of people switch from their "normal" salon which has both a versa and mysticHD to ours becuase they feel that the spray tan is that much better.

Hey Tamarababy, Were in lower Michigan. We installed the latest Norvell auto revolution plus directly across the hall from the VersaPro. We love both units! Pros and Cons to both. You are welcome to visit are location and see first hand both units in action. Please PM me if you have specific questions.
