When I was looking for a hot tub, I spent a lot of time on the internet looking for reviews, etc., so that is why I am taking the time to post this review. Have had my Arctic Spa for just about two years now - purchased May 2010. BEST decision ever. This is one "TOY" I will never regret buying. Total cost was around $13,000. Upgraded to the ozone technology - worth it. Light package - love it. Considered the salt water generator - dealer wasn't behind it, YET. He's waiting for them to fine tune the process - still was concerned with it affecting jets, pumps. When he's sure, then I think I will proceed with that as well. Power consumption really isn't a big issue. Only change water one to two times max per year - ozone makes the difference, plus there is only two in our household, and one doesn't use it hardly at all.

Date Purchased: May 2010
Price Paid: $13000
Recommend: Yes
Pros:
everything - love the seating plan of the Summit model - 3 large armchairs and one lounge area; great jets; led lights; one waterfall; simplicity of chemicals - dealer is great although I only have had to bug him once - in first month one light needed replaced. We get to minus 30 and minus 40 celsius, and no problem. I don't usually go out then, but have gone out frequently at -20. We upgraded our deck - above ground; reinforced obviously, and the hot tub is on the deck, right outside my french doors. LOVE it.

Cons:
can't think of any yet - honestly.

I done alot of research on spa's before I purchased an Arctic Spa. I was told and believed that I was getting what I paid for. I bought in on the quality talk and the ease of access to all the pumps underneath the spa. Little did I know that in 90 day's of ownership that I would have 4 different leaks, a pump replaced, a check valve to the ozanator gone bad and the ozanator itself go bad. Did I mention the stero system? I has never worked correctly, 4 out of 6 speakers are bad but you know what they are ordered. Thus far I have 6 speakers on order for the stero, a check valve for the ozanator, and a ozone system. I was told that all of these things are MINOR problems. Minor? If you watch there video they preach quality, ease of access, You will need ease of access to all the pumps and items because they will break. I have had all 8 doors on my spa off so much that the plastic screws are either stripped or they have broken off. Oh yeah, they have been ordered. I am in the process of getting this piece of junk off my deck, I have had enough. I bought a spa to relax and enjoy. How can you enjoy something when you invested $12,800 in it so you would'nt have the problems and every other week you are on the phone with a different or same problem. Come on, who wants something with this many problems. Minor? A leak is a leak is a leak in a spa, it just should'nt happen if all you preach is how much better your spa is than everyone else's. Can anyone say Action 9. the local investigative reporter? I can.

After months of looking and researching we where able to look at the Arctic models, and we liked what we saw. Hand laid fiberglass tub with a lifetime warranty. Fully insulated with a void space for better insulation, and easy to get to plumbing. There are not as many jets as in other tubs, but I understand that you can add jets later with just a little instalation. Jets are interchangable and with both pumps running there is plenty of power. The cover on the tub is heavy duty and is not suppose to retain moisture as is a common problem with other covers. Comes only with a cedar cabinet, which looks great.Arctic is a Canadian company and are starting to branch into the US which makes finding one hard, but it makes getting a deal on one great. Take a look if their in your area, We love ares and are happy to own one.

Date Purchased: Sept./2003
Price Paid: $9000
Recommend: Yes
Pros:
Solidly built, with one of the best warranties. Multi level seating.
Several jet packages to choose from.

Cons:
Some seats do not have jets.
Everything thing is extra.
Limited showrooms.
