Master Spas - Purchased and now I Pay over $100 for a filter can't buy it locally has to be from them :( ... won't buy from Master Spa again.

Hi Dolly! We don’t make the filters, nor do we sell them retail outside of direct sales. Any pool or spa that has filters will eventually need to be changed. The inner Eco-Pur filter we do recommend replacing every 6 months, but the outer filter can last up to a year with proper care & cleaning. We apologize for any miscommunications you might’ve faced in the purchasing process. Thank you for your feedback.

It is very disappointing that I have to pay top dollar for a filter thru Master Spa and cannot purchase it locally. Over a $100.00 for a filter every six months ...

ridiculous!!!!! MASTER SPA I FEEL RIPPED ME OFF AND I WILL LET ANYONE THAT IS THINKING ABOUT GOING TO THEIR EXPO ... NOT TOO!!!! I can't believe what people will do to make a buck.

These people obviously will do anything. We asked about the cost per year and was lied to. PEOPLE PLEASE DO ALL YOUR HOMEWORK ON THIS COMPANY AND THEIR PRODUCT BEFORE YOU PURCHASE ANYTHING SO YOU DON'T END UP IN MY SHOES.

IT IS BECOMING A SAD, SAD WORLD WE LIVE IN. HOPE THIS HELPS ALOT F PEOPLE OUT.

I purchased a Master Spas hot tub at the hot tub expo in Marlboro, MA. Slick sales techniques.

Troy Burnett makes promises that he conveniently forgets. I was promised a cover that could withstand my 2- 100lb dogs' weight. He told me that was not a problem. Fast forward to delivery- now he has no idea what I'm talking about.

I have a sunken deck and my dogs have constant access. He saw pictures of my deck and of my dogs. We discussed both in depth. Now he says that he meant that if they walked on it once, they wouldn't fall through.

I should apparently tell the dogs not to walk on it. (By the way, the concern is similar for a child) My only option is to purchase another cover from them in which they'll give me a "great deal".

Don't do business with this company!!!

Tell me what’s causing the blue flakes?
Master Spas - Contact for Problems

Can’t find anyone at MS to contact to discuss a problem....have had the tub for 3-years with no problems and now I’m getting blue “flakes” in the water that may be glue....never had a water problem and the water tests fine so I’d like to find out if there was some type of blue glue used in the assembly. Filter is also fine.

The flakes, when rubbed together form a “glue” type substance. Tub is an Enterprise series. Picture shows flakes and glue type substance when rubbed together. HELP!!

I have had the water checked constantly and everything is fine. This just started after I did a new fill of the tub.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. There is not “problem” contact number for MS, only Parts.

Michael Phelps spa, I purchased the spa at a local show in St. Louis in September 2017.

Since purchasing the spa I have had a heater go out on it and now I have a circulation pump is going out on it very very unhappy with the spa with like somebody from corporate to contact me. My name is Bill Prewitt, I purchased my spa through spas and more here in Sunset Hills Missouri.

My phone number is 314–9 73–6487. Please have somebody contact me as soon as possible.

Master Spas - Relaxing and enjoyable

We use the tub very frequently. The control panel is easy to use, the diverter controls move smoothly even with the pumps running, led lighting is just the right amount (we actually like the slow transition through the colors). The corner seat with neck jets "splash"/"spray" .. water in my ear and on my face. Still experimenting with this feature but mostly just turn those off. The foot massage jets are awesome (very powerful). The lounge seat is also very nice. We have avoided those in the previous tub but it is very pleasant.

Master Spas - Great spa – great purchase!

For years I had wanted a hot tub and never bought one for various reasons. About a month ago we received a flyer about a tub show in our area and went to look around. The sales staff were very helpful and pointed out the differences in helped us determine our needs/wants. We purchased TS 8.2 and have been very pleased so far. Easy to operate, cleaning the filters is a breeze. We are still learning the 'little" things but overall a great product and great experience so far!

Master Spas - Lot of issues

Hi Michael. We’re very sorry to hear that you’ve been having technical issues with your spa and that you are upset with your dealer’s travel fees. The warranty does clearly state that the dealer is allowed to charge for travel expenses, as only parts and labor are covered. We contacted your dealer to learn more about this issue, and they said that unfortunately due to several factors (i.e. your proximity to the store, their multiple shows, one available service tech) your repairs had to be pushed back. They agree that this shouldn’t have happened, but unfortunately there wasn’t much that could’ve been done at the time. After talking to your dealer, it sounds like you’ve talked to Angi and that Brian is scheduled to come take care of you on Friday. We hope that you are back to enjoying your spa soon! Thank you for the honest feedback.

Update by user Jun 06, 2018

This issue has been resolved. Shortly after my original post, MasterSpas contacted the dealer who then called me and got a technician out to repair the hot tub within a couple of days.

Its just sad that it took almost 6 weeks to get this fixed. we love the spa, but, don't love the issues we have had with it. When the tech was there to fix the heaters, I asked if I was doing anything wrong. He said no, the water quality was good, there was very little scale build up on the heaters.

He had no explanation for the failures. We are originally from the Ft Wayne, IN area.

That is one of the reasons we purchased the MasterSpa, also the best warranty we could find. My fear is what will happen once my warranty expires next year.......

Original review posted by user May 07, 2018

We bought our spa in July of 2016. Immediately the recirculating pump went out and had to be replaced.

A month later the heater went out and had to be replaced. Yes, it is under warranty but dealer charges $99 trip fee for all service. Now, 5 weeks ago, the heaters have gone out again! My spa is still not working despite repeated calls to the dealer (who says they only have 1 service person and are very backlogged).

If they are having so many issues with these spas, maybe they aren't quite as good as they claim.

We really enjoy having it while it is running, it is getting quite troublesome though. It is still under warranty, but there goes another $99 for trip fees.Wtf

Master Spas - Best Tub

I waited awhile to do this review because frankly I was worried because the tub was such a good buy but I have to say after 15 months this spa has been amazing. Better than our last one for more money. It amazes me how little care and clean the spa stays. So far, so good.

Master Spas - Misleading at best

Oscar, as the manufacturer our goal is to have everyone that purchases our products satisfied. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible for several reasons relating to potential product issues (which we can readily address) or unrealistic expectations. While Hot Tubs Inc. , the retailer you purchased through, has won numerous awards the past several years, they are not in the position to perform any electrical service on your spa. From what we understand, this has been clearly conveyed to you on several occasions. You will need, and for the safety of your family, should want a licensed electrician to perform all the wiring and connections. Our owner’s manual clearly states this too. From further information that we are aware of, you requested them to come out and perform an orientation on your new product. They arrived to find the product not hooked up and not even filled up. Obviously, no orientation could happen although they already sent a representative from their business on the trip to your residence a couple hours away. Also, from what we understand, the retailer has offered to send someone out again to perform an orientation once you provide proof the product has been filled and hooked up and agree to pay a minimal travel fee to make up for the multiple visits that have been out of their control.

Master Spas claim that we haven't contacted Hot Tubs Inc, one of its distributors, to solve our problem. I thought the Office of the Attorney General letter was clear enough.

To clarify Master Spas poor understanding, here is more info that might help them clarify the matter.

On may 15, we place a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. No answer from Hot Tubs Inc., Master Spas distributor. (Attached document)

On May 24, after no answer from Hot Tubs Inc., Master Spas distributor, we placed a complaint with the Office of the Attorney General. (Attached document)

On June the 7th, the Office of the Attorney General sent the final request to Hot Tubs Inc., Master Spas distributor, to resolve the mater.

On July 3rd, the Office of the Attorney General states that after repeated attempts, it was unsuccessful getting an answer from Hot Tubs Inc., Master Spas distributor.

The fact that Hot Tubs Inc. Master Spas distributor, haven't answered any calls or attempts to contact then, make Master Spas answer really misleading

Master Spas's reply to:

Master Spas - Be careful

Hi Orlando. After reviewing what you’ve told us, along with the information we have on file and the information provided to us by Hot Tubs Inc, we stand by what we’ve told you originally. Your spa was delivered on 3/20/2017, you had requested that they leave it on the pipe until they returned to remove the pipes and put the spa into its exact spot. On 4/13/2017 you had scheduled to have Hot Tubs Inc come show you how to use the spa, but then cancelled the appointment saying, “you weren’t ready”. Hot Tubs Inc says that they haven’t had any contact from you since. As far as your spa not being hooked up, that does not fall on the backs of Hot Tubs Inc. Your spa must be installed by a licensed electrician – not your dealer. This is clearly stated on your sales agreement. Once you get a licensed electrician out to hook up your spa, I’m sure the people at Hot Tubs Inc would be happy to come out and show you the controls and give you an orientation on how to use your spa. If you have any more questions regarding this situation, please feel free to email me at khess@masterspas.com. Thank you.

Master Spas - Be careful

Master Spa sells through its dealers. If you read on their web page, you'll see at the bottom of the page a disclaimer: "Your dealer is an independent businessperson or company and not an employee or agent of Master Spas We cannot and do not accept any responsibility or liability for any other representations, statements or contracts made by any dealer beyond the provisions of our written limited warranty."

We got our spa from Hot Tubs Inc.

Unfortunately we payed before they turned on the spa and one year later we still have a spa that have never been turned on, a bill for $2,000 to repair it, and Master Spa claiming that the damage is our fault because we left water on the pipes over the winter.

Attached is the letter from the Maryland General Attorney stating how Hot Tubs Inc. ignored any attempts to solve the issue
