I really did my research on finding a tub that would be good to use in my large enclosed patio in the apartment complex where I live. Several factors that led me to purchase this tub were cost ($2000.), energy efficient (runs on a dedicated plug 110 v), and quality. For the most part I have been happy with the tub and use it almost daily. The only draw back to this tub was the location of the control box panel. The maker never told me that if a slight bit of moisture gets in this area, it will mess up the control box. I have had to change out the control box twice since buying the tub in mid March, 2005. Lucky for me there is a one year warranty on parts. Lifetime warranty on the shell. But aside from that I have been very happy with this tub. The folks at Dream Maker have been awesome with there customer service, and making sure that all is good. I would recommend a Dream Maker spa if you are looking for a low-cost, simple, good quality tub. No big frills with this tub. It has 10 jets that do the trick. Light for night. Seats four, but I'd say 2 is more comfortable. Electric bill is about an extra 20. dollars a month, but very much worth it.
