First-time spa purchaser! 22 yr anniversary present. I’ve narrowed it down to: 1. Artesian Captiva 46 2. West Coast Spas Deschutes Both spas with similar options are fairly close in price. The Deschutes is about $600 less overall (and that includes a $300 delivery charge since they’re in Oregon about 30 minutes south of us). If not for that delivery charge, it would be about $900 less. Both have 2 5-HP motors. Artesian uses Balboa pumps, WCS uses Waterway pumps. Both have similar # of jets. WCS has more bells/whistles with LEDs, etc. (not that important to me; I want longevity). The Deschutes has a better overall warranty (5 yrs on the plumbing; 3 on the pumps, etc.). The Artesian has 3 years on plumbing/electrical. The Deschutes comes with a cover lifter as well. Artesian has a dealer here in town (Vancouver, WA) that’s been around since the seventies. Well regarded for after-sale service. WCS is in Milwaukee (30 minutes south of us in Oregon). They have rebranded a couple times over the years from what I’ve been told. They make the spas themselves. Any thoughts on which way to go? Thank you in advance.
