We purchased this tub new in '97, just thought that I would write a review as we have since moved to another home
and bought the '04 model of this tub. We used the tub for three years. We wanted to take the tub with us, but the
buyers of our house wanted to buy the tub with the house, so we reluctantly sold it.
Yes, it lived up to our expectations. We did have a problem, but we were taken care of to our satisfaction and under
Would we do it again? Yes, and to prove it, we just did. Same updated version of the same model, from the same
person (Rick Hallett, now the owner of Wind River Spas). The new model has updated Balboa controls, better pumps,
a better ozonator, updated valves, a longer warranty, refined layout and misc. upgrades like LED lighting and waterfall.
We really like the service from Wind River, the price (and value) compared to other spas, and the sales practices of
the Spa Exchange (now simply Wind River Spas after the owner of the Spa Exchange bought the Wind River factory).
The deal is simply $50 down when the order is placed, with the balance due at delivery. We have heard horror stories
about other brands, expecially for service as well as sales practices, so we didn't even bother to shop other brands
this time. The tubs are built to order, with a three week wait for our tub.
As for features, we like vigorous massage (two two-speed 5 hp pumps through 48 jets, and one 1/15 hp continuous
circulating pump) and the layout. The construction of the tub is top notch. I can't wait for ski season this year knowing
what we have to come home to.
I have no problem recommending Wind River Spas to anyone and have on several occasions.
