I talked to a factory Rep. of the Hot Tub that I posted about the other day.

It's a rotomolded tub. The only access you have to the workings of the tub is through the small door to the
electrical area. If there's ever a leak you have to drain it turn it up on it's side or upside down, dig out the
sprayed in foam and repair. Most hot tubs have a removable skirt for access to the plumbing, it may still
be sprayed with foam but there's still access to the plumbing. I can't imagine trying to dig out foam in a
small gap between the outer shell and the inner tub shell.

I know several have mentioned a Hot Springs, I know they're great tubs but out of my price range.

I,m a guess that increases efficiency/energy use age quite a bit. Probably more important up my way with high electric rates and cold weather.
Now that we've downsized,don't have room for a hot tub, but it sure would be nice.
Outside is pretty much not an option here.

We had a Hot Springs for 16 years and left it with the house when we moved. A friend bought a hot tub from Home Depot that broke down within the first month. The repair company took 6 weeks to come to town and fix it. He was always having problems with it.
We bought a used Tiger River spa (built by Watkins which also makes Hot Springs) when we moved to this house in 2002. It was a year old and we paid about half of new price for it. It is still running strong. I have had the pump rebuilt once and that is all I have spent on it.
With hot tubs I believe you are better off if you buy a name brand, even if you have to buy it used.

Yea I'm leaning more towards a Nordic. All the dealers I've talked to said they're a great basic tub with good
hydrotherapy. All these dealers sell higher end tubs Sundance, Marquis, Caldera, etc. The Sundance / Nordic
dealer has been in business over 20 years and he said he's had maybe 5 service calls on his Nordics but
the Sundance, which is full of frills, he said we are called on them way more than they should be.

My wife is pretty much set in not getting a used tub. We've actually went and looked a few and they either
turned out to be a lot older than they let on or in worse shape than they stated.

Nordics are sprayed in foam but all the skirting can be removed for access to the entire tub without
flipping it or turning it on it's side.
