We bought our second jacuzzi this year and LOVE it!!! Our first was just a 3 seater and it suited us at the time but this time around we bought a 6 seater, really deep, tons of jets. You should have seen me at the home show, I climbed inside of every one and decided on which one was just right, deep enough, wide enough, jets in the proper places, etc... We built a sunporch around ours and enjoy it rain or shine, I can't wait until winter. As far as maintenance, I clean the filters every week, just take them out and hose off, I drain the water every 3 months, other than that I just maintain the bromine tablets and check the ph, adjust as necessary, really easy. The benefits are great, sore muscles and aches seem to disappear and I love the alone time with hubby.
