As noted another reviewer this is a great tub for the money but you need to have DIY skills to handle basic trouble shooting. Also we did have an issue with delivery. Third party dock had tub for 3 weeks waiting on Overstock to approve larger than a 2 man delivery. It wasn't until I pushed Overstock that they approved and 8 men brought it and placed where I asked. There are plenty of jets for different body areas but to use all 5 seats at once you will have to take full pressure from other seats all will still have a good medium pressure. Don't buy this for water falls (non existent) or music (2 small speakers). Lights are ok nothing special. Understand the limitation and this is a great tub for the money.
After 20 years with an old hot tub that finally bit the dust, i decided it was time to replace.. I went to spa expos(what a joke!!)pool stores( another joke) all priced spas for me at around 9-12,000. Plus i had the added problem of needing a crane to lift the old one out of the ground then over the fence. and the same for the new one.-- all of the pool stores quoted me 800-1300 dollars. Anyway i found this one on overstock- ended up with a 12% off coupon at about 4100!! local crane person did the whole job for 250.00!! The support group at overstock tracked my delivery every step of the way and we had no problems whatsoever. the new spa is gorgeous and amazing- 2 pumps - more jets than we know what to do with and we are very happy!! thank you overstock!!
This is a good entry level spa. I live in the northeast where the spa is located outside and the 5.5kw heater easily maintains 104 degrees. The downside to this spa is the single pump. There just isn’t enough power to thoroughly feed all the jets at the same time. If you shut down half of the jets it has enough power to massage but with all of the jets turned on there is not enough power to get a massage. The waterfall is a nice feature and is backlit with led lighting. The spa is built well and will serve the purpose of what we use it for. If you are looking for more power purchase a spa with 2 pumps.
I looked real hard for an affordable starter tub and came across this one. Below are bullets to help you decide if its the right one for you. It ended up being perfect for our needs. `No other tub out there comes close to price and the $$% off we got with overstock credit card sign up. 1. We live in Georgia and tub Came from Tennesse. So total delivery took 2 weeks. If you live across the country Im sure it would have taken 4 weeks like other reviews. 2. The delivery was prompt and on time. But only 2 men were on truck. I helped them get the tub in the back yard to the spot. So make sure you have a back up person in case one man shows up on truck. 3. The tub is a brighter red wood color than the pics and is a plastic type wood material. The corner panel was damages and cracked off in the delivery process. Overstock is working on getting a new panel sent out. overall tub look good. 4. It will heat 2 deg per hour. starting at a average out door hose temp of 75 deg. 5. Its a 3 adult tub, or one adult 4 kids under 10 years old. 4 adults can fit but zero room to stretch legs. Being that is just our family 2 adults and 2 kids it perfect. 6. The side panel screws off and the instructions were on a cd right as you pull panel off and plug there also. Panel is not that hard to put back on. 7. You do just plug and play but make sure the breaker box has a 20amp. I had mine changed before I got the tub. Breaker has not tripped at all. I think a 15amp would have. 8. The jets are strong. Very little difference than if you had a 240volt plug. 9. The changing colored light at night is great. 10. Fill the tub one inch above the highest jet. Takes about 1 1/2 hrs with a garden host. Place the hose in the filter which is actually in the corner of the tub across from the head rest. once filled hit the pump button and let it run and purge. wait about 6 min and don't touch anything else. When its done the jets will run on low which allows the tub to heat. When it gets to desired temp the pump will shut off. 11. You will loose about 2-3 degrees when people go in the tub. 12. Buy your chemicals ahead of time and have a local pool store test your water for correct chemical amounts. I spent about $$ for all chemicals needed.
