Bought 1994 Hot Springs Grande. I did a lot of shopping for hot tubs. My opinion is the hot springs brand is the best. I bought my used from the dealer which has been in business for 34yrs. Mine is 8'3x 7'9 and is 36in deep. Seats 6-7 no lounger. Paid $2500 and includes delivery and setup.

I did extensive research prior to buying my spa and found the best to be Hot Springs or Sundance. I opted for a Sundance Maxxus. Last July 4th, I was able to fit 17 naked chicks. About the hot tub, it is unbelievably powerful. It has three motors each dedicated to a section, runs efficiently, does not vibrate from pumps, and has a great filtration system.

Most spas are difficult to balance water and stink after a couple months. I change water every four months and it always sparkles with little chemical adjuatment. The Maxxus is there huge 10K model. There are many choices. Mine came from Florida Spas in Miami. They are very knowledgable and helpful.

What are they gonna charge you for shipping the item?

I emailed the ebay seller for shipping to my address, so shipping is from Florida to PA. I'll let you know what I find out. I checked the online places and the build of their 300-400 dollar covers look identical to the ones on ebay.

Got the Hot Springs Grande on the third floor roof deck 360 degree view of the ocean and bay.5 filter cartridges and 2 pumps great dealer support, heater went last month called it in to dealer replaced by noon same day. Get the cover cradle it keeps the cover from ever hitting the ground! I trade the whole unit every four years still worth 4-5K on trade.

Heard back from ebay seller

Shipping of hot tub cover - To PA is $90 to a business and 110 to a residence.

A bit high in my opinion!
