kick back relax and enjoy. looks like you are in somewhat of a warm place, green grass and shorts. we still have over 12 inches of snow on the ground. congrats!!!

Well, we can look at the snow but none on the ground around here at this time. We're in the foothills of Mt Rainier but this time of the year it seems to be raining 75% of the time. My wife has lots of projects lined up for me to get this area finished, but after that is done hopefully I'll be able to kick-back and relax some.

The tub should be nice tonight!

At least now you can kick back in the spa after working on all those projects at the end of the day. :)

If your kids are like mine it wont matter if it 60 degrees as long as it has water in it they want in.

What extras did you get with it?

I don't know what is considered standard extra's or what, but this is what we received;

*Spa

*Top

*electrical box

*locking hinge w/hydrolic stabolizer for top

*stairs

*starter kit

*1 free move w/in 2 years of purchase.

Of course the delivery/install was included too. (aprox. 30 miles)

The stuff I consider to really be 'extra' would be the upgraded hinge for the top

and the stairs. My wife said that is what she wanted added in to make the deal

and so they did.

I guess that is it......

Cogratulations, the Vanguard is one of my favourite spas.

Enjoy your new tub! I can feel your excitement as i still remember mine when i first turned on those jets, isn't it cool? (Or should it be "hot"?). I had to work nights when mine was hooked up, but kept calling the wife and asking her "what's the temp at?", lol . . . got home from work and straight to the tub and enjoyed it ever since, great relaxation time and also great place for family time as i'm sure you'll find out. Congrats!

After we got the kids down we both headed out for our first dip. I set the temp at 104 (just because)...but I may turn that down to 102 and see how that goes.....the wife thought it was a bit hot. We hung out for about 30 min before we headed back in. It was good, just need to figure out all the jet settings and such (what knob does what). It was actually nice to turn all the jets off and just sit in silence..... It was also nice that the first night was a clear sky (stars).....yee-haw.

I think I'll let the kids in later today after I get home from work....

Today I did my first early AM session prior to work. Got in around 5:30am for about 30 minutes and sure was cool (or should I say hot). We did end up dropping the temp down to 102 and I'm getting the hang of what does what. My daughter (7) likes to hang out in the spa, but my son (5) wants no part of it. He says its too hot, and that's fine.

Anyone else have photo's to share of their tub's, and how they have the area setup? I'd like to get ideas from others who have used their tub for awhile. I'll post more photo's later after we get our area more completed.

Jack,

Be careful with the kids getting in at the high temperatures. The heat can be bad for them if they sit in the spa too long. In some areas like ours its even illegal to allow anyone under 14 to use a commercial spa.

The reason is that their hearts beat a lot faster than an adults and when they get into that hot water it increases their heart rate. I turn the temp down on mine when the kids want to use it. Our doctor told us there shouldnt be a problem if its at 100 or below.

Thanks for the info. So far she usually has only been in for about 10 minutes at a time, but I'll drop the temp when she is going to be using in the future.
