Californians:
All models inflatable spas have become illegal for sale in California due to the inability to test to an efficiency level established for rigid or soft spas. Liberal nanny state

We wont be able to buy this...
sucks doughnut?

This deal is dead but in case anyone reads this in the future:
1) Setup isn't at all intuitive. I found a video on a similar unit and setup is exactly the same https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3...y&index=26

2) There's a California version of the hot tub, which I bought for $247 on Black Friday https://www.walmart.com/ip/Hydro-...f5a59eef28.

I picked up a 1.5# bottle of Clorox 1" bromine tablets from Lowes so I could at least get started with something. Broke a few half and stuffed them in the dispenser.

Everything seems to be going well with the tub so far, cools off pretty quick with the bubbles on at 30-35 deg outside. Falls about 2 deg every 10 minutes of bubble use, otherwise it's holding at 103-104 consistently.

Also with a short garden hose section we filled from a basement laundry room sink to use the soft water from the water heater. Took about three good rotations from the 50 gallon tank to stay close to the 100 degree mark right out of the gate.

Quote from DAGG3R :
Does anyone know if there is a way to add the 4-Year Accident Protection Plan (for Pools $150-$199.99) for $45? When I click on view eligible plans in my purchase history on Walmart's website, it says the 4-Year Accident Protection Plan (for Pools $350-$399.99) for Hydro-Force Havana Inflatable Hot Tub Spa is $75. Since the hot tub was only $197 when I purchased it (current price is $399.99), I would think the protection plan should correspond to the price paid and not the current retail price.

It looks like I can purchase a protection plan separately but I'm not sure how/if it will get linked to my hot tub purchase automatically, or if this is even the correct plan to cover the this particular hot tub.
https://www.walmart.com/ip/4-Year.../531201028

If anyone knows how these protection plans work, or has any input with this situation, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I'd be interested to.. Otherwise I'm going to try to call. I tried chat the other night and they were less than helpful

The footprint is 71-72 inches diameter across
I wanted to try something stronger, thicker and more insulating on top of concrete than the foam gym style mats.
So I bought a 1 inch thick rigid foam board from Lowe's ($20 bucks)
Cut a 12x48 inch piece off each end and then duct taped each one to opposite sides longwise on center.
Now it can be folded like wings and be stored upright too. When it gets warm again I'll trim the foam to match the circular shape of the spa for the bottom.
https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kingspan.../999972966

I may try and make another one for under the spa cover but on top of the insulating pillow they sent, just to help keep some more heat inside the top.
Also seen people wrap the outside all the way around with Reflextic bubble insulation foam for better heat retention. (24"x120" - need two rolls)

(Attached sketch of dimensions and picture of foam board)

I would have needed three sets for just the hottub. I wanted to cover the whole shelter floor which is 91x91. Another thing i like about having the hf mats is the cracks allow for overflow from the hot tub to go somewhere besides sit on top of a less porous surface.

I wouldnt even worry about the tarp. I would just spend the extra few dollars on more mats to layer the whole floor. My set up is on a concrete patio also.

I just added a inkbird thermometer that was on sle last night to be able remotely check temp when i am in the house (bluetooth range)

So I guess the neighbor's wife wasn't into it, then?

How do you add chemicals? I bought a 40lb bucket of the 3in chlorox tabs from Costco, but never used them. I was trying to figure out correct dosing, I suppose I could break them in quarters but how do I add it to the water? Just throw it in? I don't have a float, but if thats what I'm supposed to use anyone got a link or suggestions?

These come with a container that opens for the tabs and then connects to the tub. Or are you wanting something different? You would have to break apart the 3 inch ones though

The thing above the one with the filter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?app...UyyrRxwTMU

You will definitely want smaller tablets. You want something like this: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Clorox-S...e/50333081. Even 1in tabs are a bit large for our chem dispenser.

Also, many people prefer bromine over chlorine for hot tubs. Finally, you should at least get an oxidizer (aka "shock") as well. I use a non-chlorinating shock.

The brominating tabs stay consistently in the tub in the chem dispenser (though I remove the dispenser when I bathe). The shock you sprinkle directly in the water either after you use the tub or at least once a week.

Great question. What is our plan? Is this it, the point where we all say goodbye and good luck? Do we move elsewhere, if so where?

It's been great learning and tubbing regardless of what happens. Stay warm sheeple. Applause

Anybody place in walk out basement? I live in georgia where we still experience a chilly winter and don't want to waste electricity and wear out the heater on this.

I'm thinking to crack open a window or two when the cover isn't on should be good enough. I have methods to safely transporting the water and my basement is unfinished.
