… It’s got a lot of features, like five engines, lighting and jets. And it accommodates five people. It’s nice and of good quality. It’s pretty expensive. But it makes my wife feel better. She has arthritis and stuff.Read full review
I like the quality of ThermoSpas' products and the warranty on them. We also liked how we were able to test drive their unit a couple of times. We got one of their spas with a swim assist lane and with the ability to adjust jet flows.Read full review

The sales person was knowledgeable and had ample information for us, brochures, videos and pictures- and in depth knowledge of specific things that were important to us like filtration options, maintenance etc.... The company was very patient with us as we readied the spot for the tub and it was delivered by professionals when we were ready. We got all the information we needed to maintain water quality and take care of our investment. And the product itself is awesome. Rock solid, everything works great, you can really tell the quality. It doesn’t use blown-in insulation, it uses thermal barriers Instead so if we ever did need or want to get ‘under the hood’ it is simple and easy to do.
We got the ozone filtration package which reduces the amount of chemicals needed. We use it every day, on weekends even twice a day- and my skin has never felt better. Because we use it so often I got a Taylor Spa test kit- it’s very precise and worth the cost. My skin glows and feels like velvet which is quite a feat in your 60’s! My joints feel better, my skin feels better (even the heels of my feet of all things!) and it’s effortless to go to sleep at night after being in the spa. It was delivered in early March, and I’m so glad we got it when we did, it makes quarantine a much better experience! We never splurge like this but I’m so glad we did it this time. No regrets!

The thermo panels on the ThermoSpas are on the outside and you will not have to get to all the insulation underside. I went to several places and I didn't like the way the inside panels where you had to dig out insulation and foam to get to anything. If you gotta go in there to do work on something, you'd have to cut all that foam and insulation out. Over time, sitting outside, that’s also a habitat for bugs. With ThermoSpas, I also like the construction, the quality, the warranty and the easy setup. You can also pick your color, how many jets you want and where you want them, and how many pumps you want.
The salesman was wonderful too. I had so many questions and I’m sure I asked the same ones over and over but he never lost a beat with it. He took his time. Afterwards, they even came out here and followed up. They've also called since then. They called the day before and on the day of, they were running 30 minutes behind but they called and told me where they were. These people were absolutely wonderful.
Having the hot tub has been exhilarating. It’s been very nice. You get what you pay for in a lot of things and you can tell how well this thing is put together, in terms of the construction and everything on it. It has temperature control and you can design the tub to have the jets you want on. If you just have two people in it, you can just have those two jets running and turn the others off. There are also light features and I like the ease of getting in and out. The tub even has a center thing on the back that's like a cooler. You can put ice and drinks in so you can hold it while you’re out there and you don’t have to get in and out. That has been very nice.
I liked ThermoSpas warranty and the reviews, and if there were any negative reviews, how ThermoSpas responded right away and made sure that the issue was fixed. That is good customer service and customer service is very important for me. Everybody at ThermoSpas was wonderful. I liked Jessica. She was fantastic. She stayed in contact and was flexible to work with me. The installation went good. The only thing that was a little bumpy along the way is I didn’t realize that the cover lifter was supposed to be mailed directly to me separately, and I didn’t get that until later. But we had changed the delivery date on the spa which was probably why I didn’t get that ‘til after. That was just installed this morning.
I liked the way the seating area of the ThermoSpas hot tub was laid out. I got the Concord Silver model. I also liked the jets. I didn’t need a ton of them. I didn’t need a lounge. I just wanted something that was big enough for me, and also, big enough for my son and his kids if they wanted to come over. I’m very happy with it. It’s top quality. I got the Cadillac of hot tubs and I love it. I do a lot of work out of the farm and I come home, and I’m sore and tired. It helps me sleep better after I’ve been working in the yard all day. It’s good for my muscles and my body. I’ll use it everyday unless there’s thunder and lightning.
I went for ThermoSpas more by comparison on what I saw, and what was offered, and the construction of the product itself. I like the way it was made and the way the interior was constructed, that it wasn’t filled with styrofoam, that it was insulated, and able to get to all the mechanisms inside if it needed repair. We have the lighting, jets and it’s the five-seat spa. The delivery process was over-the-top. They did a excellent job. And that’s one of the areas that I felt I was more concerned with based on some of the feedback that I saw, as far as reviews. And they exceeded my expectation when they came to do the set up. All around from beginning to end, I had no issues.
I was a first time spa owner and once it got installed I had to get it hooked up by my electrician, so it wasn’t filled when he left. I was left to my own to try to figure out how to handle the chemicals. When they left they said, “Okay. Once disconnected, you fill it up.” And I got the chemicals, and they gave me the sheet, and it explained how to use the chemicals, but they still leave some things to the imagination. So, if anything, I think that could be enhanced.
But I’m still learning. It’s only been a little more than a month since it was delivered. It took about a week to get the electrician to come back to do the hookup. I’m still trying to figure out to make sure that I have the right chemical setup and it's difficult if you’re not familiar with either having a pool or a hot tub. You need to know the pH levels and the alkalinity, and understand how to balance it. But once you get the hang of that, then it’s fine. Nonetheless, enjoyment-wise ThermoSpas has been positive. I have a 13-year-old son and he’s been pretty much utilizing it more so than me. And most of it with his friends.
I contacted ThermoSpas online and they called me back. They set up a meeting and we went from there. The salesman had a lot of information. He gave us some good things to pick out. A guy delivered it and my husband did the electrics. It was hard work for him because he's elderly and he's got some health issues. It took him several days to get it all completed. If I thought sensibly about it, I would have hired an electrician to come do it because it would have been done probably in a couple of hours, but it's fine. It all worked out.
So far, the tub seems to be really, really good quality. We've been happy with it. We had no issue at all when we set it up. We put the ozonator on so we could use less chemicals. We also have 1 waterfall included and a few extra jets put on. Since it's been started up, we've used it pretty much everyday. It made our life more fun and relaxing. It's a nice thing to do at the end of the day when you're tired and wanna get ready for bed, and just sit in the tub and chill out for a little bit. It was an absolutely positive experience with ThermoSpas. The only issue that we did have was when we ordered it, they promised delivery within 5 to 6 weeks. It's a couple of months when it actually was delivered so I was anxiously waiting.

I've tried to reach out to Consumer Affairs to edit and update my previous review, but didn't get a response. I do want to update my review to indicate that several of the issues I previously mentioned were RESOLVED by the company, including the issue of the scratch during installation and refund of the lifter. While I still do think that there are some areas they could improve in terms of scheduling and transparency about hot tub management etc, I want to note that my RECENT customer service experience was significantly better than what I experience back in the fall, when we initially ordered. So I'm adding this and upgrading my stars, as it appears they may have addressed some of the issues since I initially wrote the review (it was just published, but that took time).
First off, you'll notice other reviewers commented on the hard sales pitch and this was certainly our experience, as well. They'll tell you just about anything to get you to buy it. If I could go back to the night and tell myself NOT to make this purchase, I probably would. I think we could've gotten a comparable product for MUCH cheaper with much less hassle.
The hot tub: The product itself is ok. But, they'll tell you it's nearly maintenance free, requires far less chemicals than other products - and neither of these things are true. We are CONSTANTLY adding chemicals (near daily right now) and finding it very difficult to balance our hot tub after six months of ownership. The supposedly proprietary system that keeps it perfectly crystal clear does not. We are draining and refilling much more often than we were told to keep it clean and clear. We're also finding that their brand of products doesn't work as well for cleaning/sanitizing as other brands.
The delivery and setup process: Not easy at all. Scheduling was a bit of a nightmare and we quickly found that once we'd paid for the hot tub, getting a hold of ANYONE in customer service was near impossible. We'd walked through a particular placement in our yard with the salesperson, who assured us it would work, and long story short - it didn't - and he should've known that it wouldn't work that way. We were berated later on in the process by a customer service representative who told us we shouldn't have placed it there and that this was the source of our problems. Well, we'd asked specifically if it would work, but as others have said - the salesperson will tell you what you want to hear, not what's accurate.
We had purchased a spa lifter that clearly would NOT would where the spa was placed; we eventually, after many emails and calls decided to return the spa lifter for a refund and six months later still haven't seen anything. Also, when the spa was delivered, it got scratched - and they were supposed to come back out and buff it. Never did, and despite scores of messages left on the customer service voicemail, nobody ever responds to our calls. We gave up calling. Which leads me to customer service.
Customer service: There is none. You will never get anyone on the phone. If you leave a message, they will never return your call. I was only able to ever get ANYONE on the phone by picking a different option on the menu and then haranguing the person who answered into transferring me, but that was six months ago, and I've not been able to get anyone since. You will waste many hours trying to get someone to respond to you, and you'll probably give up, just like we eventually did.
Tips if you purchase: Look, my review is bad. But, I will say that the actual tub itself, issues with maintaining the water aside, is nice. It's attractive (aside from the scratches from delivery). It's comfortable. The jets are good quality, the lighting is good quality and it does maintain heat very well, even in the winter. All of those things are positives. So, onto what they won't tell you that you should know:
Don't listen to them that this is lower maintenance than other hot tubs. It isn't. It's not worse - but it's the same. Go in with that expectation. You will have to clean and add chemicals much more often than they tell you. Look, that's fine, I've owned hot tubs before - what we have to do with this one is more or less on par with what I've had to do previously, but don't let them sell you on this as a plus, because it's not any different or better than other products. It's the same.
Don't let them tell you any placement will work. We wanted ours to sit adjacent to a low wall, so that three sides were open (but the fourth would be closed off). No problem, said the salesperson. So we spent the money to install a concrete pad in this spot and then, when it was delivered, including the pricey spa lifter we had initially purchased, we found that you really cannot do this. It should be open on all four sides, and you'll need more clearance on that spa lifter than you think. Read the specs yourself and take everything the salesperson tells you with a grain of salt, because they'll say anything.
You don't actually NEED a fancy spa cover lifter. We were really quite angry, initially, that it wouldn't work after what we paid. Returning it for refund (which of course we haven't gotten yet, six months later) wasn't what we wanted to do. But, we ended up buying a cheap manual lifter off of Amazon and found that it actually works really well, because the cover just isn't that heavy. So if you're reasonably able-bodied, consider whether you really need the mechanized one they sell.
Don't expect customer service - they're not going to help you in a timely fashion. So, plan, plan, plan to make the delivery as easy as possible. Hire an electrician to do the work that has worked with hot tubs before, because they know better what to do then the Thermospas folks (our electrician SAVED this project). So...there you have it. Do we enjoy the hot tub? Yes, we do. Was it worth $9K? No, it probably wasn't.
We have only owned our spa for 9 months and really love it, but unfortunately the durability with some of the items hasn't been what we expected. Both items that broke are on warranty, but we placed an order for the locking shock almost month ago and it still hasn't been processed. Each time I call we get the reason is that they were shut down for 2 weeks, but in the mean time we cannot use our hot tub. We understand the shut down, but if we knew we would continue to need warranty parts due to breaking, we probably would have purchased one locally instead.
ThermoSpas did contact us with a solution that made us feel better about our purchase. They will update our spa with what they can and compensate us for what they can’t.
My husband and I had a ThermoSpas salesman come to our home to educate us about why their spas are better than others. He went on and on about how ThermoSpas has automatic sanitation- ThermOzone. When I asked him about maintaining their spas, he said all it takes is throwing in 2tbs of chlorine once every two weeks and the chemical kit lasts about a year. Also you only have to drain and refill the spa once a year, however, the manual says refill every 4 months.
Having never owned a hot tub before, we believed this guy. We built our custom hot tub with him. Then he gets on the phone with his manager and tells us there is an exact model of tub already made that a customer did not take possession of. The only difference is the color. They were going to knock off some of the cost if we take that tub. We were ok with changing the colors of the spa so we agreed to take that one.
Our newborn started to get fussy so we quickly signed the contracts having faith that our salesman was selling us what we were verbally discussing. Our tub was delivered about two weeks ago and we discovered many things did not add up to what we discussed with the salesman. Trying to get in touch with someone who can help us has been a nightmare. Finally, someone spoke to us today and informed us that their salesmen can say whatever they want in their pitch, it's not censored. We would have to pay in addition to the original cost in order to get the parts we thought we were already getting. Don't trust what they are selling you, they overpromise and underdeliver.
We were just looking and ThermoSpas came up. The representative who came out was informative and sold the product to us. We bought the Atlantis 400, which is a spa and we love it. We are not using it as often as we want to right now because of the weather but we plan on using it a lot more.
We purchased a replacement cover from ThermoSpas a few years ago. The original cover had deteriorated after several years of use. From day one the one side of the cover would fill with water. I thought it was coming in from the hot tub. Two years ago I shut down the hot tub and completely drained it. A few days ago I opened the cover to restart the hot tub and the cover had a lot of water in it. It took over ten minutes to drain. Even worse, there was 12 inches of water in the bottom of the hot tub. The fitting on the heater had broken allowing water to leak into the structure and the wood on the bottom of the hot tub was completely rotted. The damage to the hot tub was extensive due to freezing over the winter.
