Good morning, all!
My husband and I have been looking to purchase a hot tub for about a year now, but simply cannot bring ourselves to spend $6k+ on a brand new tub. I was poking around online yesterday and happened to find a used 2005 Sundance Cadence hot tub that a woman was giving away for free, as long as we haul. We went to check it out same day and loved it- it's a great tub and looked well maintained. We have to figure out how to move it, so I started calling a few local hot tub haulers. The one who got back to me said he would politely decline the job as the Sundance tubs from that time period are made with a type of wood that often rots out from underneath. He said the bottom of the tub may detach from the rest of it when we try to move it onto its side. My husband is very handy and it doesn't phase him that he may need to rebuild some of the base, but it scared me a bit. Has anybody dealt with this? Is this really a very common issue with the Sundance tubs?
We'll now be moving it ourselves so we're trying to figure out those logistics, too.
