With July 4th only a week away, many will be raising, hoisting, planting and waiving Old Glory in honor of Independence Day. This holiday can’t help but remind us all of the many things we love about this country.
“We thought about this recently when one of our Bullfrog Spas was installed in E. Hampton, NY.
After the job was finished, the clients planted the flag right beside it. Their raising of the Stars and Stripes reminded us of the enormous pride our Best Hot Tubs’ team has in our Bullfrog products and the American quality and the craftsmanship they represent.”
If you happen to be a Bullfrog Spa owner — or plan on taking advantage before July 7th of Best Hot Tubs’ Summer Sale to obtain one — you’re no doubt already appreciative of the manufacturer’s environmentally-friendly design and durable materials.
“Not to mention that Bullfrog’s cutting-edge spas are completely made in Salt Lake City, at a state-of-the-art facility, including all their components,” says Best Hot Tubs owner Bill Renter.
Saluting Long Island, NY, Craftspersons
Speaking of superb craftsmanship! New Best Hot Tubs clients from E. Hampton had an older hot tub that had to be replaced.
“Their existing spa had been serviced by Proper pH Pools of E. Hampton for years, but it could no longer be repaired.”
When the original spa (left) had been installed, its position in-ground caused drainage problems. Every time it rained, says Bill, the spa’s interior would be flooded and the hot tub would stop working. To fix it, Proper pH techs had to crawl under the deck to get at the equipment.
“Bob Barzilay of Proper pH told the clients the hot tub was just too damaged to continue fixing it,” says Bill. “It seemed far more economical to get a new hot tub rather than continually fix the old one.”
The clients agreed and Proper pH Pools removed the old hot tub and took out most of the decking around it and reframed it. They also built a raised gravel surround, using railroad ties to create a sand-box-like area that they filled with gravel.
“Speaking of a high standard of craftsmanship, Proper pH Pools made room for the new spa in same spot as the old hot tub, only it is now lifted above existing grade,” says Bill. “This allows for proper draining and water won’t pool around the new spa like it used to.”
Proper pH Pools also cleverly solved the access problem created in the earlier installation, continues Bill. They put in a removable panel made out of decking which is easy to take out for a service person to get at it.
“With the deck-matching access panel, it is so well done you can’t tell it’s there.”
Bill explains that once the pool company had framed it out and added the gravel, Best Hot Tubs delivered the new Bullfrog A7 spa, then Proper pH Pools finished the carpentry around it.
Bullfrog’s A7 Spa
Bullfrog’s A7 is a handsome, full-featured, mid-size hot tub that has the feel of being much bigger than it is, but its size allowed for it to fit perfectly where the old hot tub had been. This is because no space is wasted in the design.
“These clients maintain a lovely landscaped backyard with a pool and handsome deck. The new spa and installation blends perfectly with what they have.”
The A7 can seat up to 8 and boasts dual premium corner captain’s chairs — each with wrist, hip, calf and foot jets — a waterfall, as well as 5 JetPaks of their choice. Like all Bullfrog Spas, it is well-made in the USA, durable and environmentally-friendly, which means, says Bill, they’ll get lots of use and enjoyment over the years.
“Plus, the spa is so well installed. We found Proper pH Pools the most professional company we’ve ever worked with. They do things the right way and are superb with planning and communicating.”
Naturally, we were grateful to learn that Proper pH Pools feels the same way about working with us.
“Working with Best Hot Tubs was fantastic,” says Ursula Kristofich, Chief of Operations at Proper pH Pools. “It was a breeze to coordinate with them the scheduling, organization and installation of the hot tub so we could provide our client with the best possible experience.”
