Our "Hot Tub" is offically up 'n runn'n :rolleyes:

It's shell has only been sitt'n out back for nearly 2 years and now we've finally got around to sett'n it up:)

I just re-piped some of the plumbing, adding both shut off and drain values a few hrs ago.
Set the temp on high and now the H2o is nearly ready to jump up into.

Man, I can feel it now .... Can't wait :D

ICE COLD MICKEYS IN BOTH HANDS

The only problem with getting it set up is, now you'll be kicking yourself for not doing this 2 years ago. Congrats!:toast:

My hot tub is the second best purchase I ever made, My X1 being the first of course, I enjoyed 20 minutes at 103 degrees this evening under the full moon. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

lower the temps and you'll be able to stay in it longer. This time of year we are at 101 and not unheard of to be in it for 60 minutes

hot tub only suits, never washed with soap...or even better au natural

tri chlor only, tried all the rest, that seems to be easiest on the skin.

Actually, Tri-Chlor tablets are not recommended in tubs - at least not plastic tubs which are kept hot and covered with an insulated cover. They are far too aggressive and they also tend to make you chase the pH. In fact it will void the warranty on most new tubs, and cover manufacturers frown on it as well. If you have a concrete/plaster tub with no cover they are fine.

Having sold and serviced these wonderful things for 21 years now, I suggest Dichlor. It is a powder, and you can add anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon each time you use the tub - as you are getting out. Run the jets with the lid open for ten minutes, and then close it up.

That keeps the water clean clear and safe, and results in hardly any chlorine odor at all as most of the chlorine will be gone the next day when you come out to use the tub again. If you skip four or five days of use, you should toss some in anyway.

Here is a web board where you can find more info if you would like - say hello if you drop by, I'm one of the mods...

You beat me by 3 years!! We brought ours to our new house when we moved. It sat in the backyard for almost 5 years covered up. I finally got around to hooking it up last March and after about 200 dollars in parts, it worked like new. Have a merry Christmas in your new Hot Tub!
