Ah the wait, always the fun part after the purchase lol.

When you are filled and powered up do yourself a favor and wait until the temp hits triple digits. Don't get over anxious and let your first soak be at 96º; wait for the full effect you get with triple digit temp!

Correct- Hot Springs has a special GFI box that comes with the spa - it takea a 50 amp 240v input and has a 20amp circuit and a 30 amp - one for the heater and another for the pumps

Installation was this morning:

- 2 guys ,a few dollies and 1.5 hrs later they were done. They were great and answered all my "*** engineer" questions during the install :). I liked them so much I grabbed their card and will use them if I ever have to move this beastie.

Ran out and got some 303 protectant and gave the cover and skirt a good rub down while it was heating up.

Well I am drying off from my FIRST SOAK in my HS Vista -- took most of the day to get to 102 degrees

First Impressions:

Very powerfull Hydrotheapy - the Moto Message is intense, Foot jets peel your toes back, 4 neck jets in 3 seats melt away stress, Lower back seat = bye bye lower back pain

The lights with all of the color options are a nice touch in the evening

The control for all of the jets takes a bit of getting used to- Actually had to READ the MANUAL to make sense of it- silly me to assume that you can have ALL of the jets for a single seat on at the same time :)

this is one quality tub - looing at the guts of it showed high quality workmanship

In Summary: I am very pleased with my choice and REALLY happy that I got the HS Vista instead of one of Watkins other brands that I was concidering . Looking forward to many years of stress free evenings.
