Our 13 year old daughter wanted this but was disappointed as it doesn't really rock. Maybe it would rock kids that weighed less than her 100 pounds? Anyway, it takes up a lot of room for a fairly unusable pool toy.
We had 5 people helping us and had the pool put up in 3 hours. The sand filter calls for 110 pounds of sand however we bought two 50 pound bags at a pool supply store and it works fine. Be sure ground is very level and read directions carefully. My husband skipped putting in all the screws to attach the skimmer and it drips a bit. We will fix it later but it is a wonderful pool! I threw in a bag of shock and put one chlorine tablet in a floater and the water is perfect. Be sure and fill pool about half way up the skimmer for the filter to run smoothly. Highly recommend!!
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!!
I was a little hesitant to buy without seeing the tub first. I went ahead with Overstock because of the price. The spa I received was a Home and Garden HG-71. There is a long wait because it appears they don't stock the hot tubs. The tub was ordered to be built at the factory after I placed the order according to customer service. Leisure Products Inc. builds H&G tubs as well as many other brands. Shipping was from the factory direct to my curb. There was no helpful option when the delivery truck came. It was to the curb at the street-- period. Waving cash didn't help either. The crate and pallet were almost completely destroyed when it was dropped off. Very weak pallet and crating for the weight. It is crated and delivered standing on it's side also, ready to tip over on the broken pallet. I had to find rocks near the road to make it stand up. No damage to the tub though after uncrating. I suggest setting up a local tilt-flat bed, wrecker service for a few dollars if you want the tub off-loaded easily and placed somewhere. I didn't have a wrecker service planned. I did have 3 people to help, but this tub is 860 pounds. It was a struggle for 4 to get around the house and up onto my deck. Consider the high cost of electrical work ahead of time. The electrical parts and work is fairly expensive. The tub had residual water in it when delivered, so I assume it was tested. After filling and turning it on, there was a leak in a 2" PVC joint where glue hadn't been applied correctly. I called Overstock, who only gave me the name of the manufacturer and wished me good luck. Not an acceptable response for a defective, three day old, $ purchase from Overstock. The reason for an acceptable rating here is only is due to the good warranty service I received at LPI. I made contact with LPI's service department. The service person was very helpful. I e-mailed him a picture of the leak, he offered to send a local spa service person and parts to fix it. I opted to have them send the parts in a box to me and I cut out the leaky joint, then re-assembled and glued the new parts in myself. Overall, great hot tub, looks nice, everything I wanted for the price and more. I use it every day, including just yesterday at -2 degrees. Cost to keep it hot and ready outside is negligible. Comes with a soft cover which appears to keep everything well insulated.
