We bought our eleation three summers ago. The spa works great and the only problem we ever had was a blown speaker in the "Acquatics Melodies" sound system, which the dealer changed at no cost to us. However, if you're considering purchasing a spa you should be aware that the top only lasts about three to five years and has to be replaced at a cost of about $300. That's a small price to pay for all the fun you'll have with your spa. Just make sure you use it or its an expensive toy.
