Hot Tub Forum / plumbing leak
« Last post by thundercatshoo! on September 22, 2021, 12:03:39 pm »
My hot tub lost power last December.  I drained it for the winter, but still found a leak in an area that was not insulated enough.  I do not know all the lingo, but will try to describe it.  It is in the plumbing at a connection.  The connection is metal.  I have a video and will try to attach it(can't figure it out).  I can email it to you...
Trying to find someone to help fix it.  We are just North of Denver.
Best,
Jon

No way!  I have my hot tub out in the open and would never enclose it.  Nothing better than a light snow on a 25 degree night with my tub set at 106!  Maybe a little frost in my beard.

106 !   Man, I don't think I could even get in one that hot. I have trouble at even 103 (and usually set ours to 100-102).

Jacuzzi makes a fine tub, I don't have any issue with recommending one.

Look at the Artesian lines. The Island Antiqua fits the bill except for the warranty, it's only 3 years. The Nevis is also a fine tub if you want a 5 person and have a space issue. The Grand Bahama is another really nice tub. The Artesian Elites fit all your check boxes, including warranty but will be on the upper end of your price range while the Island series are mid range. Artesian is a top rated tub with hand rolled shells and Balboa controls (due to shortages, they are using Gecko controls in the lower end models like Garden Spa)

CalSpa can be hit or miss. Some of their tubs are good values, some are not and Customer Service and warranty issues can be troublesome.

Heard good things about Viking.

The best advice I can give is shop dealers. You want a dealer that is responsive and trustworthy as they are the ones you will deal with for support and warranty service. You want one that has good reviews and an in house service department. If you are not getting good feelings about the dealer, walk away and find another one. Also if possible, wet test the tub you want. If they don't have that model, wet test one with the features you like and definitely wet test a lounge model. Not everyone stays put in a lounger. My wife does, I do not without supplemental weight. (not a problem but you need to know this)

Hot Tub Forum / Need hot tub recommendations
« Last post by nndesai2014 on September 22, 2021, 07:01:39 am »
Hello,
I came across this forum and I am fortunate I did.
There are very few online reviews on hot tubs and looks like the pricing varies. Its very hard to get accurate unbiased customer reviews or YouTube videos on specific hot tub models.
I did go through few previous pages and got myself educated as well.

Me and my wife are looking for a hot tub. Looking at 7000-15000 dollar budget, 5-6 seater, good massage and lounger. we use occasionally and not catering the tub for entertainment purposes but for personal needs.

Because I am new to the hot tub field, I am very confused and overwhelmed by the models out there. I would truly appreciate if I can get some unbiased recommendations on which one to buy.

1. Need low maintainance ones. I have heard of auto clean tubs that require much less chemicals but this sales person was saying its a myth and selling gimmick. Is this true?

2. Want to buy one with 5 yr or even better parts and labor warranty. Which brand is trust worthy?

3. I was looking at Calispa Escape 740 L that going at 8500 dollars. Not sure if this is a good deal. The other option is viking legend 2 but more expensive. I am open to buy any models which ever is good quality and reliable. We live in phoenix by the way. What do you guys think of Jacuzzi as a brand and model?

4. I was also thinking of building a surround around the spa. Its costing me 4000 dollars but will give a great look for my backyard. Any thoughts on this?

Thank you again.
Roger

Congrats on getting it back up and running.  Curious, how do you like the wifi unit?

... And now we're in the waiting game. We've been told it should be delivered sometime in Feb (2022). Here's hoping to no delays!

Folks at PDC tell me they're out EIGHTEEN months at this point!

Not surprised. When I was looking in January, PDC was 10-12 months out. The dealer I was at didn't even have a tub on display.

It's a porch that is enclosed with sliding glass doors, so it's permanent.

Because they are sliding doors, I can open it up and get the outdoor feel and still close it up for protection and some warmth during the winter.
