Hi All,

My name is Darren Jordison and although I don't visit this site very often, I think that sites like these can help the serious hot tub shopper and the hot tub enthusiast benefit from the experience and opinions of people who work and breathe and live the hot tub industry everyday.

I have been in the hot tub industry for over 10 years in Calgary, AB, I have been a top performer for Beachcomber Hot Tubs, HotSpring hot Tubs and now- Jacuzzi Hot Tubs (International Distributor of the Year 2009).

My goal is to raise the bar in the hot tub industry and to do the right thing for consumers.

I'm Here To Help!

Ahhh my buddy Darren above!  ;D

I thought I'd re-type my intro since there has been many changes in my life. I joined this forum way back when as a salesperson for Beachcomber Hot Tubs in Edmonton. I worked there for over a decade and became one of Beachcombers top salepeople worldwide. I left after hitting the ceiling in 2004 and stayed within the industry for a number of years as a rep for Hydropool and another line out of western Canada. I started a business consulting company (which I still own) but have recently taken on the position of Manager for Beachcomber Edmonton after being away for over 6 years. It's good to be "home"!  Both here and Beachcomber! ;)

I'm not sure I'll be back spending as much time as I once did, but I'll do my best! Good to see many of my old friends still around here. I look forward to catching up with many of you very soon.

Steve

Hi I am RobertB. I have been selling and servicing spas since 1994.
 
I used to post on her quite a bit in the late 90's.
 
Just started posting again and I have noticed that none of my old posts are here anymore. :'(

I guess it is ok since all of the topics are pretty much the same. ;)

I am not here to advertise my services. I am just here to help where I can.

After nearly six years of silence, I have returned.

Hello, my name is Craig and I still work in the spa industry.
We were first asked who the ^%#@! we were back on this post dated 2005. (http://www.whatsthebest-hottub.com/forum/index.php/topic,5884.msg68167.html#msg68167)

I conducted my independent spa repair business well after the housing market burst- but late in 2007 ended my run as an independent, unable to make ends meet. In April 2008, I relucantly took up housekeeping with Phoenix Spas as their service manager until their closing in January this year.

Yes- for those of you who are familiar with my previous postings about the company, I did work for them in the earnest hope that I could have some effect on both their product and reputation in the industry. Unfortunately, what I was able to accomplish was not sufficient enough to ensure the companies survival in an increasingly competitive market.

Today, I am rebuilding... in the same manner as the myth of the self-immolating bird, I will be resurrecting an vocation dead nearly three years.

I am happy to help with any questions regarding any product and pleased to render service for Phoenix Spas or any other product in my service territory in northern California. I do not retail any product and have no ties to any manufacturer.

Hi,
My name is Darnell and I am a Factory Rep for Hawkeye and Barefoot Spas. I have been in the Spa industry for about 6 years and have traveled the country meeting quite a few dealers and service professionals.
This industry is a lot of fun and because of the constant challenge to create a better product it is never boring.The last 30 months has found me doing a lot of learning on the manufacturing end of the industry. So if you have questions I welcome them and will do my best to provide an answer.
There are quite a few well made spa on the market and a lot of the time it just comes down to being comfortable with who you are buying it from. You will never hear me knock another manufacturers product to make mine look better.
I look forward to perhaps getting to know a lot of you and learning from all! I can be reached at djones@hawkeyemfg.com
Also if you get the time visit barefootfitnessspas.com barefootspas.com hawkeyespas.com

My name is Ed Konarske, I own Everything Hot Tubz in Englewood Colorado and have been in the industry 11 years.  We are a hot tub service company who also sells refurbished hot tubs.

I had a customer doing research and told me this site was helpful so I figured I would join and maybe learn something or beable to help someone with problems or in making a decision.

Not selling new spas (anymore) but having sold almost all brands I hope I can bring a nonbiased view.  Feel free to email me at Ed@EverythingHotTubz.com or checkout our site at everythinghottubz.com.

Hi I am Jay from thecoverguy.com I grew up in a pool and spa shop that my brother ran starting in 1979. We went all hot tubs in 1984 and since then I have sold, serviced, and moved countless hot tubs.

My start into specifically hot tub covers was In 1986 at a home show a customer walked up and I asked him if he had an interest in buying a hot tub and he said no he already had one, and at that time there were not many people that actually had a hot tub in our area, he then asked if I could get him a hot tub cover replacement for his hot tub because his 2" flat hot tub cover had been broken by someone sitting on it. I said Ok and I have been making and supplying hot tub covers ever since.
