Since my wife and I are in our senior years and very active, we thought a spa would help ease some of our daily aches and pains. The spa has not lived up to my expectations due to mechanical problems. From the start, the thermostat(dial) was hard to depend on for consistant temperature. Within a few years, it would not shut off automatically when it reached the desired temperature and it would trip the breaker in the main panel. We are no longer able to use the spa. Unfortunately, we did not receive an owners manual when we purchased the spa that would aid in its repair.
