  1. The salt system it’s an unregulated device that’s actually a salt chlorine generator which works in conjunction with a titanium cartridge that breaks down salt to produce chlorine. You will pay a good amount of money for those cartridges plus for all the additional chemicals to get it to run. And because salt is so corrosive, you'll be replacing all kinds of parts and equipment prematurely. In a market where everyone tries to copy each other ideas, hence, so many trademarks and registered products, the Salt System is something that everyone but one manufacture agrees that its bad for the hot tub and enjoyability of it. I am not arguing that SALT WATER is bad for you. On the contrary, Salt Water has its own benefits but it works better on pool water because the temperatures are a lot lower. That is why you see so many salt water pools. The Salt Water System on a hot tub work above 95 degrees and its something that you will find very frustrating to deal with. You will either have too much chlorine or no chlorine at all and the logo flashes and system errors messages will drive you desperate. It can get to the point where you will be asked to put bleach in the tub just so you can get a chlorine reading. At the end, salt in your water accelerates the process of corrosion. Salt Water hot tub dealers love the system because they make a ton of money on repairs. The salt system life expectancy is about a year while a hot tub is can exceed 10 year. Most people get rid of the system months after getting it and there goes the whole reason why you choose them. A hot tub should ALWAYS be fun and easy to use. An good alternative is UV Light Systems. It is used on hospital, schools and during water botting process. If you have the option to add a LOW OUTPUT Ozone system next to the UV light you will be very happy. There is no reason to choose a spa base on salt system when you can get a more comfortable spa with better water quality and management. See for yourself.

  4. We're in the market for a Spa. Admittedly I didn't know much about them before we started taking trips to various retailers around the area, and since then I've started doing a lot more research. At the moment, we're leaning towards the Arctic Spas "Cub", a 7x7 spa meant for 5 adults. https://www.arcticspas.ca/arctic-spas/arctic-cub/ I like the layout, a "captains" chair, a nice lounger, and plenty of additional space for a few friends. Doing a bit of research on various spa companies, it seems like for every "Company X is the greatest, excellent customer service, etc" there are two or three "never buy a spa from company X!". So my dilemma, I don't know what to believe. I realize that the dealer who sells you the spa is a significant factor in making your overall experience a great one or a nightmare. Outside of the "good dealer/bad dealer" factor, I'd love to hear honest experiences with the "Cub" spa, Arctic Spas in general, and perhaps alternative comparables if Arctic is a "no no" for you. I also have some more specific questions about the spa features, I'll just list them in point form but would love to hear peoples opinions/answers to any/all of them, much appreciated! Between the "Prestige", "Signature" and "Legend", is there any difference between them outside the number of jets and pumps? The dealer lead me to believe that the "legend" automatically came with additional features such as the "Family" lighting system, and even other "optional" features such as EcoPack Spa controls, OnSpa, and No Maintenance Cabinets. I didn't see anything about this in the literature, and on the quote they wrote "family lighting"... is that something they're just throwing in hoping we'd upgrade to the more expensive model, or does each of the above really include additional features above the lower model? EcoPack, OnSpa, Spa Boy. Are any/all of these worth it? What about the Onzen Salt Water system? I've read mixed things about salt water systems corroding things faster, not being any less maintenance than water+bromine, etc What about Peak 1, Peak 2 Ozones? I've read mixed things about ozone systems being worth it in general $11,500 for the cub legend (pre tax, but delivery included) good deal, bad deal, fair price? Again, greatly appreciate any and all feedback, opinions and experiences. Of course I will also be returning to the dealership to ask some of these questions directly, but this is a big purchase so want to cover all my bases.
  5. Hello all, new to the forum, also a new pool owner. I have never had a pool and bought a house that has a salt water pool. We have only owned it for 4 days and decided to check on thepool. It seems there was some mismanagement by the prior owner. I will give you rundown of the equipment and the chemistry. I am having all sorts of issues. Pool is: 30000 gallon Gunite Saltwater chemistry Water is pretty clear Chemistry as tested at Leslie's: FAC 0 TAC 0 Salt 600 ppm CH 90 ppm CYA 0 TA 80 pH 8 Iron and Copper are both 0 Phosphates is 300 ppb Now for the equipment issues: Aquapure 1400 throws the following service codes 144 - low salinity (seems obvious given the low salt level) 172 - Flow Sensor Service 186 - Flow Salinity Sensor/temperature probe error I guess my main question is, could the lack of salt be the reason for all of the codes. My thinking is the sensors require higher salinity to function properly. It has no chlorine, so I am going to throw some acid to bring pH down and shock to get some chlorine in there. Thanks in advance for helping the new guy out.
