Solid build, does the important stuff well
Oct 9, 2012 10:44 pm

As said, it is a solidly-built unit, does the important spa stuff well, not as elegant looking as some others but it is attractive simplicity. Any fancy stuff is under the hood - not for show. I am a tall and very heavy man, and it is rock-solid. I understood the controls easily before I read the manual, but I read it a week later anyway. The stereo (Sony marine) is just fine, but I now know I could have done without it. The seats are wide open, no neck collars or thick neck pillows (good for me). If I had a complaint, I would like the jets to be a little stronger but I recognize that as an old football player I prefer massage to "hurt so good" so that I relax later, not while the massage is happening....so I use the air injection alot. There were significant incentives at the time, so the price was incredibly right for the features and build.

Solid as a rock, good wide open seats and unintrusive neck pillows for tall people, nice leg and foot jets, simple and attractive - not over-fancy, lounger doesn't launch you onto the surface, jets are easy to pop out and replace. It does what it's suppose to do very well.

*I wish it had more options for the cabinet.
*The foot jets only operate when the lounger jets are on - but you have to sit in any other seat to use them and have both pumps working.
*I would like stronger jets, but I could be abnormal.
*The stereo enclosure is right below the controls - this increases the possibility that standing water around the controls could go directly into the stereo enclosure if it is opened.
*I can open the enclosure and operate the stereo from within tub (maybe I have monkey arms, but I would think that should be impossible).
*if one cares about the stereo, the remote is useless, and it could use bluetooth connectivity.
