Hello PoolSpa forum! New to the site and my first post (but well-versed with forums in-general). I am also a first-time hot tub/spa owner. Quite frankly I think they are okay, but the decision to buy was more for my wife and kids. I already know they will love it, and maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised once I try this one myself!
In 2009, Hydropool provided a fully-optioned self-cleaning 800 Titanium to The Price is Right game show, and a local fellow was the lucky winner of it in the showcase showdown. Although his hope was to use and enjoy the spa, he simply hasn't been able to change his current situation to where he could put the tub in a proper setting. He recently put it up for sale, and I found it to be the perfect fit for what my family would enjoy. In about 4 weeks after our site is prepped we'll take delivery of the tub, and I will actively visit this thread to add my comments/feedback along the way.
Normally I'm the type to research every option of every brand, so this is a little out of my comfort zone to zero-in on something specific without doing my homework. But being that it's a fully-optioned top-of-the-line brand-new unit from a brand that I have read positive comments about, we're going to give it a shot. But honestly, I have a lot to learn and will have questions. The most important thing to me is to see constructive feedback from current or previous Hydropool owners. So let's make this an "all Hydropool thread" by Hydropool owners. I would really like to hear from you!
If you are contemplating the purchase of a Hydropool spa please keep your questions specific to Hydropool in this thread and not a comparison of other brands' specific features here. Also, if you are dealer of any brands including Hydropool, I kindly ask that we keep this an owner's feedback thread (unless a specific technical issue can be addressed by a Hydropool dealer that would benefit existing owner's)
And Hydropool, if you would be able to offer the original warranty on this still-new unit starting with us, I'd be happy to send documentation and photos showing the unit still in factory wraps and being installed at our location in about a month.
If anyone wants to post pics of their Hydropool, that also makes things more interesting. I'll post pics of my backyard project to be built around this unit as well.
