Reason of review
Bad quality

I, too made the mistake of buying a Master Spa from Stevenson Pools. BTW Stevenson is whole different and lengthy complaint!!

I am getting ready to file suit against Master Spa.

I have had my stereo and TV serviced 12 times and still they don't work. The finish began to crack after the first year. I called MS and they told me they would give me a $60.00 credit against the cracked finish...the spa cost me $15000.00!!!!


The only relief will come in court. I will let you know the suit proceeds.


It shouldn't matter where you buy the spa....its all about HOW the spa is made. If its shoddy workmanship..then the spa will break down as mine has.

My suit has been filed and I will let you know the outcome.

If anyone else has had similar problem...please let me know.

Maybe we should consider a CLASS ACTION suit????


I am behind you 100%. Tell me about the lawsuit.

Master Spa and BBq show should be denied access to any customers in Arkansas because they have no local service techs. The swimspa in not chemical free because of the EurPur filter, as both salesmen said at the show.

I told them this is not the pool I order and for them to pick it up and return my 50% of $30,000.



We are having a similar problem and would like to find out more about the law suit. I think class action is needed. My name is Dave email thx


It sounds like dealer problems and not spa problems to me.

master Spas is one of the best spas on the market today. But like any product, not infallible. That is where the dealer comes in.

Sounds like you guys bought from poor dealers.

I'm wondering if Gevans or Carlos has taken the opportunity to contact Master Spas who in my 21 years in the business has one of the most responsive customer service depts i have ever seen.


I have an older model Legend 1050, I have had the techs out several times to service my spa too. They are very expensive and do not know what they are doing. The first tech told me that I needed 3 new pumps and a new board and to be prepared to spend upwards of $3,000. Two fuses and lot's of Google research later, I was back up and running (spent $10 on fuses).

The spa department of the pool house I went to are a bunch of baboons.

I do not endorse Master Spa, I wish I never bought this *** thing in the first place, it has been a nightmare.


Can u please direct me to the info u found on the web for your 1050 master spa. I am we'll am having fuse problems.

Thank you!

Reason of review
Bad quality

I have only had my Master Spa for a year and have had nothing but problems with it. The heater has failed twice and I have had to replace the main pump.

The worst thing is that when I drained it to replace the pump I noticed that the acrylic in the bottom of the spa has a blister and crack in it. I have contacted Master Spas and the dealer I bought it from Leisure Works and they will not do anything about it.

I spent over $10,000.00 of this pile of junk and have nothing good to say about either company. I just want this thing gone and I will never by a Master Spas again.


Master spas of wisconsin will give you a good sales pitch but once they drop your tub off, you are on your own. The swim spa manuels are not user friendly and the controls are difficult to figure out, and you can't get a decent explanation by even calling the manufacturer in IN! Buy a spa locally so you can have the seller come out and give you a lesson.


Kreg, Chris, SpaLady and Robert are dead on. I have 21 years experience as a service technician and currently work for a Master Spas dealer in NY.

In the 12 years we have carried the product, Master Spas has never given us any reason to doubt their commitment to the customer, the product or the dealer. The have out performed every other brand I have worked with.

I'm not saying they are perfect, nobody and no product is. The difference is how they respond when there is a problem.

For Chris C in NH. I know the dealer there personally and have contacted him on your behalf.


We purchased a Master Spa a bit out of the territory we live in and have had a lot of problems. The same problem really that never gets resolved.

Since the seller is 2 hours away, they are pretty much only giving phone support, though they claimed they sold a lot of spas in our local area (when giving the pitch). There was a oily residue upon the 1st fill of this spa and we have dumped it about 8 times since trying to get rid of it. I am being told that I am the "only person this has ever happened to" and that it has to be a water quality issue.

Well.....since we have brought in water from four cities, that cant be the issue. Spending a little money to get this piece of *** out of my life will be a pleasure!


I have a Master Spa Legend 1080 spa. In my area, finding a quality service tech is close to impossible.

My dealer went out of business, left me stranded with outstanding warranty issues, and the service companies would take weeks to show, and weeks later to come back....and guess what....without the parts to fix the problem. I called Master Spa directly and there was actually no way to talk to a person, really. I've been pleased with my spa, but it has outstanding service issues dating back to when I purchased it. I'm going to try Master Spas number noted in another posting tomorrow and start this over again.

I'm still within my 5 year warranty and currently have bad electrical control problems.

I ain't afraid of ghosts. Master Spa...please feel free to email me.


I've had the pumps repaired twice,the cheap plastic shutoff valves are worthless,nonstainless steel bolts and screws require a sawsall to move the control panel and bolts that secure the pumps,access to pumps are ridiculous,I paid top dollar for this unit,I show as many people as I can your unit, good luck with sales in Ct.


Purchased a new spa in mid may and haven't been able to use it because unable to control temperature of water. Constantly increases to plus 104 degrees.

Have contacted a service technician which it took over a week to responed, he finally came out which cost us and he reset board (10 mins. he was here and cost 125.00) and then he left. Problem continues. Also, when they were taking panel off I had to show them because they were doing it wrong.

Also, we have not recieved steps to spa which has been over a month and have called with no repsonse. Have been very disappointed with the service and the performance of Master Spa's. How you have maintained a A+ with the BBB is beyond me.

If I could, this spa would be returned in a heart beat. And yes, I am a for real customer.


We have been a Master Dealer for over 20 years in the Michiana area, and have over 6,000 Master Spa customers with Master Spas & Swim Spas. We have experienced very few service issues with their products, and I find it very hard to believe "any" consumer contacted Master Spas regarding any service issues with their Master Spa products and we not immediately taken care of.

One thing I will say about Master Spas is "they stand behind their products" 100%. if their dealer has customers with problems with their products, they will repair and/or replace that product immediately. I know, they have replace a couple for us through the years, no questions asked! If your local Dealer is blowing you off on service on your Master Spa, call Master Spa directly at 260/436-9100.

Trust me, it not Master Spa the manufacture that's not resolving any issues you encounter. They pay the deLer to do "what ever it takes" to resolve customer issues if they should arise. Want/need help resolving any issues you have with your Master Spa product, call us, we'll help you resolve your issues.

We're Spas Factory Direct in Mishawaka Indiana. Just ask for Robert.


Is it? I just spent close to $30,000 on a pool/spa and reading this has me concerned. I've contacted tech support several times and I seem to get brushed off.


:grin This is so obviously not a real customer... a local dealer who has lost too many sales to Master no doubt...

the control and heating system are Balboa... top of the pile, all the top brands use this system.

2 heaters, a pump and a shell fault... give me a break... :grin


I agree with the representatives of Master Spas. If a customer makes a public complaint, then refuses to respond when the manufacturer or dealer tries to resolve the problem, they are probably bogus!

competitors who resort to this type of misinformation are a blight on any industry.

Customers who have legitimate complaints need to give the dealer or manufacturer a chance. I would also like to say that this is another reason why consumers should only buy from local, established businesses, not fly by night road shows.
