Deal On Wet Floor Model

Well wet tested this weekend and am no closer to a decision. The Hotspring Vanguard is out. The Caldera I think was not as comfortable as I had hoped. The beachcomber was the most comfortable. For therapy we would have to go with a 700 series the single pump on the 500 series was not enough. The price is a little high for me but I did like it.

Beachcomber spas are noted for being comfortable, but the design is 20 years out of date.

If you live in a cold climate the "box O' pumps" will freeze fast, less than a day when the GFCI trips while you are on a weekend trip. You will come back to a disaster.

You need a thermally closed design in any climate where it gets cold.

I serviced a Beachcomber here in Northern Minnesota that was down for 4 days at down to 0 at night and it had no freeze damage. A simple light bulb kept it from freeze from that point for over a week. All toll the tub was powered down for 13 days and it got below zero 3 times and never above 20 with no damage.

Seems thats not possible if you read Jim's opinion.
