My wife and I owned a Hot Springs Spa years ago and sadly left it with the house when we sold it. We enjoyed the spa then with all its features and reliability that 10 years later when we decided we could live no longer without a tub we looked again to hot springs. There are less expensive brands out there but the Hot Springs line has proven dependability and durability. The flair is the perfect size for us and the LED lighting allows us to change the lighting at a whim to suit our moods. The attached easy lift lid is a feature that my wife appreciates the most. Over all a great investment.
