I bought a Futura Spas hot tub from Hot Tub Headquarters on ebay, now seems to be Spa Guys. It sat for two years before I installed it and is now out of warranty. While fixing a broken pump where a factory idiot probably stepped on the intake fitting before shipping it, I noticed the amperage on the pump did not look right. It turns out that the factory put a 6HP sticker on a 3HP pump. It was adverized as a 2HP + 6HP system. They mount the motor such that the faceplate is away from the access door so you can not see it. Be careful of liars. The 6HP sticker was not from Waterway nor the motor manufacturer. It was deliberately placed so that it is easy to see and a person is unlikely to use a mirror to view the faceplate on the other side.
Anyone ordering from one of these companies, check you motor facelplates!

The tub operates ok. Figure you will have to add your own insulation. And if you want a more powerful pump, you can buy one for around $300.
But be advised that there are scams out there.
