It is becoming more and more common when buying a home that included in the sale is the seller’s old hot tub. That was the case for recent Best Hot Tubs’ clients, in Windham, NY. 

“They quickly discovered that the old hot tub leaked, and they called us to repair it,” says Bill Renter, owner of Best Hot Tubs (Windham, Farmingdale, Westbury/NY). 

“The spa was 15 years old and had a lot of problems. We’ve learned through years of experience that when a key part isn’t working, as was the case here, it’s hard to tell if any of the other parts are also broken. You won’t know until the key element is repaired. This often means we have to return several times and, it could happen that one ends up spending thousands on repairs.”

On one visit to repair their hot tub, Bill opened it up to show them the insides. The internal wood-frame construction had gotten wet from the leaks, which had long ago softened the wood. 

“Soft wood makes it easy for rodents and other critters to chew their way into the hot tub; in this case there were a lot of rodent droppings inside the guts of the tub.”

And it’s not just the repairs that can make it not cost effective to repair an old spa, says Bill. Today’s Bullfrog Spas are so much more energy efficient to run than other spas that over time you make back a lot of your money just in energy savings.

“We’re talking about operating a Bullfrog Spa for about $25 per month, as opposed to $75-$100 per month with other hot tubs,” he says.

After a few attempts to get the old spa running, Bill invited the homeowners to our Best Hot Tubs showroom in Windham to see what a new, well-designed and built hot tub looks like. 

Here, they got a close up view of Bullfrog’s tough 100% wood-free EnduraFrame structure with a durable 3-layer acrylic spa shell. “This is key,” says Bill. “Nearly all other manufacturers frame their spas with wood or steel that can easily soften, rot or oxidize.” 

While at our showroom, they were particularly taken with Bullfrog’s X series. So when more kept going wrong with their old hot tub, they decided on Bullfrog’s X7L model, which, despite being a value-priced spa, still boasts Bullfrog’s impermeable structure, superb insulation, great energy efficiency and amazing massage jets (JetPaks).

 

Bullfrog Spas X7L Model: The Bullfrog model these Windham, NY clients chose boasts full-body loungers, traditional layouts and Bullfrog’s patented JetPaks (massage jets) which provide the ultimate in hydrotherapy experience.

Bullfrog Spas Impervious Design: Even the tray that runs underneath a Bullfrog Spa is made of the same injection-molded plastic as the frame. This is ideal when you live in a natural area where there are plenty of critters that might gnaw their way through a weaker frame.
