i bought this unit 5 years ago, maybe a bit longer.
in the last 4 -5 months i have sunk $1500 -$2000 grand into it.
replaced all 54 jets since they started to crack and leak (one did). $600 plus in jet parts-i installed replacements.
got them and found i didn't seat one just right so had to recaulk (silicone)in place.
then go and start unit up and find one of the 5 hp pump motors has blown a bearing ($435.00) to buy new unit. go and get it installed and a major spark on other side of unit. and no power to the units Circulation Pump, Ozonator, or heater. this means a $90.00 service repairman call to let me know i blow out the Circulation Pump. and the price of a new unit will be like $175 plus labor. i find it on line today $125 shipped to the door. order. now when it arrive i have to call the guy back out for a service call again. $$$ AGAIN but i also need him to set all the controls and teach me and the wife the proper chemical use in the tub so we dont kill the plastic jets again in FIVE years or so. ALL i can hope for is nothing else is broke.
