Caldera Cumberland - Update

My wife and I traded in a 7 year old Hot Springs Sovereign. Over the years, the weather had taken its toll on the real redwood cabinet and I felt it was time to trade in. We wanted to stick with 110 V, since the cost ($1300+) to add a 220 V was prohibitive. The Caldera dealer in the area was helpful and gave us a great trade in. We added steps, and ozone. I took my first soak this morning, and I love the low power of the jets and the fact that you don't have to fight to stay down like I did in the Hot springs. I am sure that part of this is due to the technology changes in 7 years, but I am definately happy so far with the size and cost of this unit.

UPDATE: 2nd day in operation, a clamp in the service area came loose while in the tub and all the water shot everwhere. Service arrived within 60 minutes and replaced the clamp and tested everthing. I think this was a fluke occurrence.

Date Purchased: 12/06
Price Paid: $4400
Recommend: Yes
Pros:
Price, size

Cons:
VERY SLOW to heat.

We also love having a cool down seat on the opposite side of the control panel. We have placed our spa beside our deck on a concrete pad. The cool down seat acts as a step into our spa with plenty of access to our control panely on the opposite side. We are in it almost 4 times a week and love it. It is on the smaller side compared to many other spas. But with the different seat heights, it accomodates our family of five well since we have a teen, 9 year old and 4 year old.

Date Purchased: 11/15/06
Price Paid: $4500
Recommend: Yes
Pros:
Perfect size for our family. Jets turn on low throughout the day and night to circulate water. Love the color and varied seat heights, and having 2 speeds for jets.

Cons:
No cons. We wet tested several spas before buying this one and new what we were getting.
