Ok, Now I'm Scared!
« on: March 09, 2011, 12:39:00 pm »
Ok, I Just Bought a Master Spa form a local dealer.  It is called a 7.2 Twilight. 
After reading some fourms on here, I'm ready to hit the panic button!

Is this tub really a bad product?  I did a lot of research between manufactures and it seemed like master was the Better in jets, horsepower, pumps, and overall quality.  Is this wrong?
Please help!

The jets and pumps should be fine and while the horsepower is most likely exaggerated by them and isn't "better" it will be fine. The quality may not be the best IMO and the manufacturer's business practices have been questioned forever but you bought from a local dealer who I assume you felt comfortable with and not from one of their shameful traveling shows so hopefully all will work out fine.

Relax. the master spa product is good. very good. i don't agree with how they approach sales, and other things, but the product is one of the best.
I work on all brand spas and actully think masters is a good product

you should be fine with the spa unless you are know having second thoughts...... they build a decent brand, its like Spatech siad some of their business practices were not on par... I am surprised that you are on here now after you have bought and asking for opinions.....

Ask you dealer how long he has been selling Master spas.  If he has been selling them a long time and has no bad feelings toward the parent company then  you may be ok I liked a couple of them when I looked at them.  The dealer that sold them in our town had been selling them for many years, but dropped the line because of the corporate business practices.  I've heard that from a lot of former MS dealers.

Ok yeah just relax. The brand that you have is good. You can ask also your service provider if you have any concerns. Chill and enjoy....

MasterSpa is...OK but not a "premiere" spa if you ask the majority of dealers and knowledgable buyers.  However, at less than $8K, it is a decent price so you probably did "just fine".  There is NO WAY I would pay anything over $10K for a MasterSpa but like all dealers, they will take whatever $$$s you will throw their way.

The reasons I think the Master Spa is less than others is that they typically use "thermo pane" style insulation which is fine in warmer climates but can be a problem in cooler temps.  They also often have a lot of "gadgets" on them and in the past, Master Spa did not do much (if ANY) quality control on those "gadgets" and many of them failed at an alarming rate.

I was wondering why the post was being resurrected many months later.
