I have had the hot tub a week. I filled it from the washing machine hot water outlet. It was up to temp in a day. Setup was easy, instructions adequate. Loosely throw a moving blanket over the pump in winter when in use. It helps. Chemical Tip: I have owned a number of hot tubs. I recommend skipping the chemicals altogether. Get a colloidal silver generator - $100-200. One quart every month, then change your water as recommended and your tub will remain odor free, crystal clear and pristine. Infact, it is very healthy, like a mineral bath. Use a cap full of oxidizer after each use to oxidize any body chemicals and tanning lotions. I have 2 issues with this tub. The tub is shallow for anyone 6 feet. You have to slouch pretty far to get your shoulders in the water and that becomes uncomfortable fairly quickly. The big problem is the strong rubber smell! Everything smells strongly of rubber, the water, the tub and you, when you get out. It is very strong!! And did I mention, it is very strong. Solve that and this tub is a 5 so far.
The product starts out great- a real bargain. Unfortunately, the power unit is not dependable, and when it breaks after a year, they will only sell you a new one for more than half the cost of the pool. It's like renting a spa- but if you really want a backyard hot tub, I suggest spending the extra amount and buying a real one.
I spent hours emailing and trying to get someone on the phone to help with this problem. I sent video showing the leak from the motor. I got a plumber to write a letter saying the motor was defective. I finally sent it back and put in a complaint to the credit card company. Even though I had my receipt for shipping, the company claimed to not have received the hot tub back and the credit card company charged me again. So I paid for a hot tub I don't even have any more! Stay away from this company!
- How accurate was the sizing? fairly accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the heater won't keep the spa hot, starts at 102 goes down to 95 in 15 minutes, motor kept failing
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? no, the motor failed 3 times
Very nice spa the first month we owned it. It tended to have many problems after the 1st month of operation, causing us to send it back eventually. Our heater broke and we needed a new one, after that a hole appeared in one of the bladders of the tub to name a few of the problems we experienced. Given that it is on a 110v outlet, it took forever to heat up.
I've needed two warranty replacements with this product. Both were provided but the 'shipping' costs to receive them were excessive. I also feel that their owner's manual is lacking. One of the warranty items dealt with damage to the cover due to ultraviolet exposure. However, nowhere in their manual does it recommend setting up in an area to limit sunlight. That is only mentioned in the warranty area of the manual.
So far very impressed.... I've had both fixed and now this portable spa and I prefer the later. It is easy to maintain, can be relocated easily if needed and is very comfortable and the right size for plenty of room. I particularly like the the way the spa easily keeps the water at the desired temp. It appears to be very economical but living in Fl the avg air temp is about 85 and the heater has little to do to maintain my desired 98. Like any item that holds air, one must be careful not to use sharp objects in it or around it.
This is my 3rd year, and we love it. It is very durable. Kids bounce around in it quite a bit. Nice and relaxing at the perfect time. Very easy to install, clean and close. Color of cover fades within a year if in the sun. The base cover split after 2 years, and I may have inflated it too far to cause that. Replacement covers are expensive. Another issue is that my local spa store does not carry the same filter size - Needed to order replacement filters online.
We've had it up and running for most of the month; love the easy set-up, compact size, all the jets. We're concerned about the pump; it leaks occasionally, doesn't shut off when it reaches the desired temperature, although the company immediately offered us a replacement when we voiced these concerns.Overall we are very happy with our purchase (the price is right!)
Buyer beware! I have purchased 2 of these hot TUBS, the tub itself is very nice and easy to assemble. It is comfortable to sit in an overall a good quality product. The problem I have with this product is the heate/filter motor assembly. This part of the product is defective and has a short lifecycle. I have had to have the motor replaced multiple times. Once the heater stopped working and twice the water pump working. I do not think that this product was ever designed for continuous use. It's too bad, it would be a nice product if it wasn't for this defect
I had reservations about buying this spa. I have wanted a hot tub for a long time, but they are just WAY to expensive. I thought, "how can I go wrong at this price?" I have used this spa almost daily for over a month. I can honestly say that I am not disappointed. Of course, if you read carefully the description and understand that there are not "real" jets on this spa, and that the turbulence comes from outside air being pumped through the spa, you will also understand that the temperature drops as a result if the air outside is colder. However, for the 15 minutes you spend in the spa, it is worth it! The motor is a bit noisy when the jets are running, but it's not horrible. I highly recommend this is you just can't afford a real hot tub.
We love it! It was easy to assemble. It took about 2 days to get it up to temp using the garden hose. This is perfect for a couple as I don't see very many people fitting in it...maybe three, max. The only problem is the Bromine. I buy a container of Bromine granules at our local spa shop and follow the instructions. The little floaty thing does not dispense enough. .
I LOVE this spa!!!! It is as easy to set up as described. I put it in my basement. The chemical and filter kit it comes with is enough to get you up and keep you going for awhile. The only thing I would recommend is getting some bromine granules to help get the bromine level where it should be. Delivery was fairly quick - just a little over a week. Communication with overstock in the meantime was EXCELLENT. Can't beat the price or the customer service!!!!!
We bought the Spa 2 Go hot tub due to the easy setup and being able to connect directly into a 110 outlet. Very easy setup. Having the blow up floor makes it comfortable to sit in and ease the stress away. The jets are not as strong as a hot tub costing 1000's of dollars, but they are very soothing and relaxing. The temp setting and controls are easy to operate and the heater gets the tub hot and maintain tempeture. Overall it's a excellent buy for someone who whats a portable hot tub
Spa 2 go is a terrific way to relax. Its easy to set up in about 20 minutes,the only wait time is for the water to heat up( we found using warm water to start is better). It fills and drains with any garden hose.The filters are easy to change and is low maintence overall. The cover keep the temperature ready for any time you want to use it, and the lock down keeps it safe.
We have bought this spa before. It lasted about 5 years. Not bad for a few hundred dollars compared to thousands for other spas. The spa is easy to set up and we can take it down in the winter. Our spa arrived within a week from Overstock!
