: I've had this spa for a whole week now.
Been 8 months now, and while the weather was cold, it got used every day. Usage slowed during the hot summer months, but it was used 2 - 3 times a week. I have not had any problems with it, though I would prefer the pump was a little less noisy, but it's not too annoying. Also, the filter cover tends to vibrate, making even more racket. I may try little rubber booties, but I don't know how they will hold up to the moisture.
: Other than the ones on the filter housing cover, the drink holders are basically
: useless, as they slant too much and I fear any drink set in them will
: fall over. The filter housing cover has four beer can size and one
: large holder. It is relatively quite, even with the jets on high, and
: the air valve fully open.
OK, call me dense. The slanted "holders" are actually where the speakers would go if you got that option, and are slanted so water drains. The only "official" beverage holders are in the filter cover. If anyone from sundance is reading, maybe in the future, put a beverage holder at each seat.
: The one thing I did not get that I may want is a cover lift, but that
: would necessitate moving the tub ~10" away from the raised deck
: it sits next to.. I am toying with building a slanting slide off the
: side (Not enough room for a shelf). If my idea works, won't need the
Still don't have a lift (or slide, or shelf). Having a counter built to go between tub and patio deck. Once it's in place, I will look at getting a lift, if it's still an option with the counter in place. Hopefully, at worst, I will have to cut a little slot in the side of the counter for the lift bracket to fit into.
