I have a Sundance Cameo that was installed in late 2004. I've had to replace a few parts (ozonator, the air pump went, pillows, cover), but beyond that it runs like a champ. I pay between 20 and 25 bucks a month to run it. The spa is on a covered patio (elevated concrete slab), 20 feet from a door. You are used to having a spa, I would think the chemical routines are probably similar. What do you want to know?
If you live in a cold area, will you drain it each winter or keep it hot? If you keep it hot, what will the cost be? If you drain it, how easy to do is that? (Some aren't made to be drained and will leave water in them.)We had a hot tub we used once. I was clueless and let the water get too low in the winter and it froze in the pipes and leaked internally to the hot tub. Since we never used it. I cut it up with a saw. It was infested with carpenter ants and mice.
Do the heaters all run on electricity or is natural gas an option? Can it be run off of the house's main water heater, which is probably more efficient at heating water?
I am very disappointed with the sales person I talked to yesterday. When I mentioned the option of installing the hot tub on my existing patio, he never mentioned code requirements. I did some research subsequently and found out hot tubs need to be at least 5' from an electrical outlet and lights/fans above the hot tub have to be at least 7'5" above the maximum water line. Both have to be GFCI protected. There are other options for lighting but I don't remember what they are. I quickly moved on and decided I need to install a separate pad. At least one decision is made.
jk@home,Awesome setup. Until I read the text, I thought the picture was from the company's glossy advertisement literature.
