Default Hot Tubs and Spas

I am thinking about buying a Hot Tub for therapeutic reasons, something that really gives a great massage. I don't just want something that looks good and bubbles. Does anybody have a spa that they really think is the cat's meow? What about Dimension One or Caldera. I hear that they are the best. Any opinions?

I have had a Dimension 1 for 6 years and it has been great.

My opinion.... The best is a Sundance Spa or a Hot Springs. I peronally have a Sundance Maxxus huge 600 gallon three motor spa. It is a powerhouse when it comes to getting the kinks out. Very well made.

You might want to look into one that will fit in your bathroom. You can just fill it up with hot water when you are ready. No need to treat the water and keep it running and heated when not using it. If you do get a bigger one look into getting a gas heater. Good luck.

I have a Hot Springs and love it. I keep it hot all year. I just wired mine 110 because I keep mine hot. You can wire it 220 and just turn it up when you want it. Mine sits outside here in Indiana and I could hardly tell a difference on my electric bill.

Thumbs up

check out www.thermospas.com

I have had the Manhattan for one year and it is simply amazing!
Without a doubt the Mercedes Benz of hot tubs. It was expensive, but worth every penny !

All the best,
Hans

you can wire it 220 and still keep it hot all the time. mine is wired that way. the electrician says its cheaper, plus it heats up faster. if you run it 110 (again this is on mine) when you turn on the jets, the heater stops, it cant run both at the same time. if you have ever been in one when its cold, they cool off after a little while. ive got a morgan. dont know how they are compared to the others, but i like it
