First Time Buyer - Feedback Request on Models
« on: January 16, 2021, 09:40:35 pm »
Hi -

First time hot tub buyer, here, but I've done a good amount of research and review. Here's some quotes that we've gathered - all prices include sales tax, cover + lifter, steps, chems and delivery:

  • Sundance Optima: $13,700 (available June/July)
  • Marquis Crown Euphoria or Epic: $12,850 (available March/April)
  • Bullfrog A8: $13,900 (available May/June)
  • Hot Springs Pulse: $10,750 (available June)

Based on research, these all sound like great brands. The HS Pulse is significantly less, but I'm sorta drawn to the others with ABS bases. No chance to wet test yet, in fact, only the Sundance is actually in stock at the dealer to test out. Any feedback and or recommendations from the experts, here?

Thanks!

Having been in this forum and a hottub owner for 17 years I was going to mention the value of wet tests.  That said, I've been away from here for awhile and certainly the availability of wet testing is certainly different in this dam covid era.

What's cool is the best tubs listed there are also the ones you can get the earliest, I would take Marquis over all those listed. The Epic and Euphoria are both great sits.

Good list of good brand names, like mentioned try and see if you can get it by appt. or something to wet test...especially with the Bullfrog which imo offers a higher level of jetting options above all the other brands listed.  Also the 'Pulse' is less because it's not their top collection so it's not really not an apples to apples comparison to the rest of the spas you have listed.  Good Luck!
