Getting ready to purchase. I'm looking at either an 8'x8', no lounge or 7.2'x9' no lounge. When sitting in the spa I like the distance between people in the 8x8, definately doesn't feel tight, and in the 7.2x9 even more so (end to end at least). But I'm a bit concerned at the 7.2 foot end. Have sat in quite a few 7x7 and 8x8 but couldn't find a 7.2x9 to test. Anyone have any experience with these? or understand what I'm talking about? Greatly appreciate your opinions!
Have had new tub for about a week. Day we got it, filled up, tested neg for metals so proceeded to use non chlorine shock after adjusting ph. Used a floating bromine dispenser, After a few days, still no bromine registered at testing. Left for vacation. Rash appeared on 3 of us (looks like mosquito bites, assuming pseudomonas from lack of bromine). Not too concerned with that and sure it will go away soon. came home to a slightly green translucent tub, barely registering bromine. Spa place recommended hyperchlorinating using granular chlorine. This definitely helped some with the green color, but we ultimately chose to drain, scrub and refill. After filling today, I adjusted ph, which is about 7.6-7.8, and added maintenance chlorine just to keep the water sanitized and not risk pseudomonas infectioN. I plan to get sodium bromide tomorrow to create a bank, then use the bromide floater. Am I missing anything? Is it safe to use today since we have added chlorine to sanitize?
My wife and I are looking for our first hot tub. I have never owned one, so could use some input. I looked at a Jetsetter by hot springs today. It look really nice, had some bells an whistles 5 year warranty. Looks like the tripple filter, and ozone means little to no maintenence. It seemed very quiet even when cycling. The price I was quoted was aroudn $7995 after factory rebate. That made me balk a bit. In my mind I had assumed a good 2-3 person hot tub would be around 3-5k. Could anyone suggest a solid hot tub from a good company in this price range? Or am I just unrealistically low in my estimate of what a new hot tub costs?
