    Yeap, only way to go. Same info I have experinced when we search for ours.

    We bought a Sundance 10 yrs ago and it is a high quality. Solid insulation. The less expensive ones from Lowes or such are more of the blanket insulation stapled to the side panels. Bottom is open. Not as efficent, but alot cheaper in $$.

    Panasonic is coming out with a new massage chair this month. It is entirely different than all other generations of massage chairs. I personally have both a spa and a chair. I have four of the new model chairs on the way and will make any OSO member a great deal.

    The new design is trackless, weighs and measures you to determine where and how to massage best. I tested a pre-release version last month and was very impressed.

    I agree that 220 is the way to go but I was already wired 110 and didn't feel like changing it. You are correct that you cannot run both the jets and heater on 110 but I never stay in it long enough for that to be a factor.

    I have a COAST SPAS for 3 years now it is great. Also not the cheapest but they are made in Canada so you can wheel and deal. It has 2 7HP pumps in it and you seat deep so to get your uper back and neck. might check them out.

    I've got a 475 gallon CalSpa with two 4 horse pumps on it. It was already at the house I bought and I'm concerned that it doesn't blast as well as I think 8 horsepower should do. It does okay, but all the little rotating nozzles don't want to spin. Gotta flick em to get them spinning.

    The new stuff has really awesome looking jet stations that should really work you over.

    I don't expect that nime will ever "wear out" so I'm kind of stuck with it.

    I'm sure you can find better.

    Gas heat works wonderful.
