These are sturdy pool bags which will do the job. A hint for closing the cover is to heat it up. The closure is very stiff plastic and heating it for a few seconds with a hair blower will save you some aggravation when closing the bags full of water.
I had asked a question as to the dry weight of this tub and was told it was 350 lbs. when it arrived here the bill of lading had it at 685 lbs, had to hire a fork lift to move it to my deck. The lounge in the tub is a little short and not very deep (my belly sticks out of the water). The two seats are plenty deep. The cover wasn't with the tub, but got it within a couple of weeks. The lights changing are nice at night, waterfall no big deal. Has plenty of jet pressure on full speed. Overall not a bad tub for the price.
First of all let me say, I had no idea when I placed this order that shipping would take 4 weeks. I wish I had realized that before deciding on this one. As we purchased it in October , and thought that it would be here by Thanksgiving, but it made it just a few days after Thanksgiving. However one of out concerns was needing family and friends to help us get it into the backyard, knowing it was heavy and bulky. So I was thrilled when it was delivered and the shippers had 3 men who were so very nice getting it to the backyard and on the cement pad for us. We really thought it was just going to be dropped into the driveway. I do not know if that is just how it is always done, but it was a great burden off our shoulders. We have owned several spas, the others were high end, at least twice the price of this one. So I was expecting it to heat faster than it does. But they were also the gas fired heaters. The jets are not super powerful, but still offer good relaxation. The waterfall and the lights are a nice touch just adding to the relaxing mood. I was say the best feature is the plug and play which is why we chose this one, it was up and running in less than 2 hours. However as we were just getting into our winter, it is slow to heat, it takes at least a full day to get it to 90 degrees. One feature is the heater kicks its self on to protect the unit from freezing. We have only used it a handfull of times, as it is to cold , but keeping it at the minimum heat, it looks to be costing only about 45.00 in electricity. We priced around our So California area before getting this, we could not find anything that was any where near this price for plug and play, so overall I am happy with this, and I am sure when warm weather is here I will get a lot of use out it.
