This is the second Hot Spring spa I have owned. The first one lasted 20 years and only had to be replaced after my deck was replaced, and the contractor told me he knew how to move the spa properly, but did not and broke it. This model is smaller then the first one we owned, but our family has shrunk with the kids now gone. My wife and I use it most nights and it really helps with the old age aches and pains. For the price it is a great value! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a spa that is cost efficient, superior quality, and craftsmanship.
