: We bought the Renaissance Excalibur 4000 from Buckeye Spas in Columbus,
: Ohio. The dealer retired and sold the business to his son, who
: actually sold us our spa. You can email me if you want to know more
: about the dealer or this spa.
: We will have had it a year and half as of Sept '04. We still use it
: nearly everday and more than once/day frequently.
: We are still pleased with its overall performance and its ease of use.
: There are three of us, but I bought a 6 person tub for entertaining
: and the ability to move around and get different jets/therapy. We did
: get a model with the lounger and while its the least used seat, I'm
: glad its there. There are three things about the lounger I would
: improve. The first is, I would make the place where you feet go
: deeper and change the jets there to cover more of the foot than it
: now does. Second, I would move the jets that fall right behind my
: knees to higher up on the back of the thighs. Finally, there are two
: wrist jets and the left one is about 2" deeper in the water than
: the right one. It is impossible to use both wrist jets at the same
: Using the tub is great, I have it configured so each seat is its own
: massage experience. I did this by replacing some of the standard jets
: with different ones and moving some around. The jets are stainless
: steel ones from Waterways and each one is variable and removable.
: These jets are one of the spas best features. The dealer has been
: great with letting me trade in jets and buy others.
: We bought a floor model with waterfalls and color changing LEDs even
: though we didn't want those options. Now, we like the LEDs, but the
: waterfalls are still nothing more than a novelty.
: I am 6'2, my wife is 5'5, and our daughter is 5'4. We are all
: comfortable in all the seats with the exception that my wife does
: tend to float in the lounger if she is wearing her suit. No suit, no
: float! My younger, thinner daughter loves the lounger and has no
: problem floating.
: I love the seat with the neck/shoulder jets. They are extremely
: powerful, yet completely variable. Because they are above the
: waterline they are noisy in use, but that is no problem for me as
: they are on a separate control and you can run all the jets and leave
: them off.
: We bought the textured microban surface. I have no opinion on Microban,
: but this surface is really easy to keep clean and I think the texture
: helps reduce floatation problems (see above) by helping you stay in
: place. The surface still looks great and shows no sign of wear.
: I've found it pretty easy to keep the water clean and I'm just now
: replacing filters. This spa takes two filters that only cost $50-$60
: to replace. My dealer gave me one extra filter at the time of
: purchase and I bought one more so I could always have a clean pair
: ready to go. Now after almost 18 months, I bought another pair and
: will retire the worst looking pair shortly.

I wondered if anyone here would have information on where best to purchase a replacement cover for our 2003 Excalibur Rennaissance 4000? Could use some expert advice if you have had experience with replacing your own spa cover.
