Well said Doc.
There is only one real fact that matter to some people. Some can't see past the price tag of some of these cookie cutter spas and fall in love and go into full justification mode. You have to take off the rose colored glasses and see what you're really getting. The problem is it is cheap is more ways than just the price (IMO) so no matter what you get, go in with your eyes open and don't kid yourself; sometimes you get what you pay for. I wish I had a dollar for every person who buys one of these bubble wrap insulation spas and complains later how its costing them $75/month more than they were told it would or about the quality/service issues. Its like the old Fram commercial, "You can pay me now or you can pay me later!".

: Yet, as of 3 days ago your spa hasn't even been running. In all reality,
: you haven't a clue what it might cost to opoerate your spa.
: And yet, through the years, we with EXPERIENCE see people complaining of
: the costs we've talk here about.
: Facts? What you have been led to believe is NOT a fact.
