Get a Hot Spring's they are great. I have a Vita and Jucuzzi now but when I replace I'am going Hot Springs.

We looked at several and found Hot Springs were good but preferred the sundance spas. Either is supposed to be very good. Sweetwater is Sundance's lower line.

We have a Dimension One. Very nice tub. We keep it a constant
104 degrees except during the Summer months.

Some key things for me were...

Control panel under the cover
Seperate pump for the heater (constant circulation)
Two large pumps for the jets
Great Warranty (a must)

Yes I looked at hot springs but at $8000 to much cake. I'm looking to spend $5000 to $6000 .

We have a Sundance. Going on 6 yrs now. Has been trouble free and is very well built. Highly recommend them.

Get a gas heater, mount the pump and stuff away from the spa for less noise. put the remote in a zip lock bag. Enjoy.

There are a few really good tubs out there, how do I know...I service them.

Sundance, D-1, and hotsprings are really well made tubs.

If you are set on the three I would reccomend the Sweetwater.
