Had the tub for just over a month now and loving it .
Purchased from Arctic Spas Kitchener and very pleased with them, from the sale to delivery . I agree they are not the cheapest spa but after doing research feel it is one of the best . With the way they insulate the cabinet, any leaks or adding of jets is so easy to fix/install . I must say the heat given off by the motors does heat the water . I run the temp at 101F and turn on the boost pump to circulate the water when i add chemical , the pump goes for 30 minutes and the temp goes up to 103F in that time, with cover on .
Purchased therapy air option with tub but think i should have held off and added it at a later date. Plenty of jet action without it on this model .
Cover lifter is a must, great option ,wife loves it, makes removal so easy.
Forever floor is a peace of mind , no worries about rodents or insects getting into wiring and insulation .
