I was initially apprehensive purchasing a hot tub from a non-local dealer. Bullfrogs are made locally and I have a local dealer for Jacuzzi and Sundance tubs, but after extensive research I was convinced that Master Spas were the best quality for the price.
My local dealer gave me an offer on premium Jacuzzi models with comparable therapy jets, but his quotes were $1,000-$4,000 more and that was before sales tax and any fees. John Erickson, the man who I purchased my Master Spa from, was upfront with me with pricing and those extra options that he didn’t honestly recommend. I followed his advice on the configuration. The tub arrived on time (actually a day earlier than the original estimate) and in perfect condition.
I followed the site and access preparation recommendations and the delivery went perfectly. The electrical upgrade happened the same day without any problems. I purchased a new Sojag all-seasons gazebo with screens and privacy curtains and had the tub installed under it on our elevated redwood deck. The total costs for the Twilight 67.25 plus cover and delivery, the 12x12 gazebo with delivery, taxes, and accessories (including a winter cover for enclosing the gazebo and hot tub), an external Bluetooth sound system, GFCI box and necessary electrical box upgrades by our electrician all came to $11,000 which I found quite satisfactory.
When it arrived I took off the skirting to examine the construction and pumps and can verify that it’s of the A+ quality attested to in the Hot Tub University review. The settings, filtering, and maintenance are straightforward and simple. The excellent video tutorials on the Master Spas website cover just about everything you need to know. The purchase through Master Spas, Pool, & BBQ Show went well.
We’ve been using the hot tub now for a month and it’s more fun, therapeutic, and easier to maintain than I ever dreamed. We love the power of those jets since my wife has fibromyalgia and I have peripheral neuropathy in my feet. We had a great time with our friends at our first hot tub party. My wife, who was initially skeptical in taking the “plunge” into the hot-tubbing lifestyle is now ecstatic over the decision.
It’s been a good experience for us this first month, so yes, I highly recommend the Master Spas Twilight series. - Ray Matthews
