  1. Really nice to see your data on power consumption (note the excel sheet is unavailable). Thanks for posting. I do not have my tub yet (on order) but I have an energy monitor on the hot tub circuit to give me the usage data once we get it.

  2. Hello, I have noticed that a number of older posts of Canadians trying to buy the Taylor K2006 test kit have run into crazy prices. I found it on Walmart Canada's website for $103.54 CAD and $9.71 for shipping.

  3. Thanks very much for the advice. I now have some information to think about.

  6. Hello, Just trying to find out what HP Beachcomber is putting in for the massage pumps in recent model year 720s. No info can be found on the Beachcomber website. Thanks.
  7. Thanks for the advice so far. Our tub will be about 7 feet from the back door. I am on the east coast of Canada. Will not have any automated treatment capability.
  8. Hello, Although this is my first post, I have been using this forum for information and education for some time. Thanks to all of the members for sharing information. I ordered our first hot tub in July 2020 that we are expecting to receive sometime this winter. I have been looking online for information on how best to use it in the winter, but I have not found what I was looking for. Lots of articles on covers and water levels, etc. What I really want to know is what the experienced hot tubers do in freezing conditions. Do you go out while dressed for winter and take the cover o
