|Competitor "Top Brand" Two 2HP Pumps 34 Jets
Tiny Circ pump full foam, with diverter first plumbing ;
ozone and their system of maintaining the water. This
is the most popular brand of hot tub and has most every
design issue I think is just stupid.
From the control box, insulation, plumbing and cheap shells. Only uninformed
and emotionally controlled people fall for this.

Fully foamed spas use ONLY electric resistance heat to heat the water, and minuscule amount of mechanical heat from compressing some air in the water to increase heat. It is an archaic design, solely for the purpose of making the spa much cheaper and much more profits.
I am giving PERFECT conditions on this spa and data from the makers, and most people pay on average $50 per month in summer and $100 in winter. I hate these spas for lying to people and making my job harder, because people get "the word out" on hot tubs. Our numbers are from TESTING in the field.
|Cost for maintenance.
||Our system of ions, ozone, chlorine, non
chlorine shock, alkalinity up. Clean filters once a
month deep clean twice a year.
Total Chemicals 7 years = $2314.59 (330.65 per year)
Ozone $22.5 per year. =157.5 / 7 years.
|Their system silver cartridge shock clorine
and many products used to remove oils, and debris from the
water. Their filtering
is horrible, so they cost more to keep clean
going. I have had many of their customers come into
our store (when we had one, now all on the "Net") telling me
how much they love their spas, but they "cannot keep the
water clean". So we sold them a lot of stuff to help and we
showed them how to improve the filtering by RUNNING THE JET PUMPS
EXTRA to bring more debris to the filter.
Total Chemical costs. Just the filter cost on a two pump spa from this company is $675 per year according to the recommended replacements times from the factory.
9625.00 for 7 years of use according to manufacturer's recommendations and cost for supplies and chemicals.
|Repairs for Parts with today's warrantys
||$00.00 Unless you destroy something by
||5 years of parts.
2 years of repairs. $900.00 Min. (Clue: Exclusive VERY expensive parts and it gets VERY expensive when they leak, over $3000 for one leak in a full foam spa, these days.)
|Repairs for Labor out of warranty 5 years
||On average. $50 per year across the
country. With over 2000 spas now in the world and
almost no warranty. Many of our spas over 12 years old
are still running on original equipment (by design).
||$400 MINIMUM for two years after warranty is
over. I recommend you have the spa modified
after the warranty is over, so you can save some money on
chemicals at least.
| HERE'S The TOTAL savings difference
between Haven and brand X, the number one selling hot
tub. Basically, buying a Haven Spas is the same as
getting the spa for free, just on the cost savings over
|People think this is some sort of
exaggeration, but these numbers are VERY optimistic in favor
of the major competitor's spas. For instance one
freeze damage to this spa, and they are VERY prone to
freezing if the thing stops in winter, costs over $2500
bucks now to fix. And one leak over time is over $3000
for the dealer to fix. They don't fix them in the field,
because if you see how crappy the spa is made you would be
very negative towards them and tell your neighbors never to
buy one. Here is a Video of one of the best spa repair
guys on Youtube fixing one of these leakers in his
shop. Normally, if there is one leak there are two or
three in this type of poor quality plumbing. This guy
has a fix for this out of date style of fittings used on
these spas. Notice how he starts out, his first
