You may consider “wet testing” a spa before purchasing. This means getting into a spa with water in it. A reputable Hot Tub Dealer should have a wet test tub to try. We wouldn’t expect you to buy a car without test driving, so why purchase a spa without trying it out! For this reason, we maintain a filled demonstration model.
When wet testing, here is what you should look for: Verify that the seats provide comfortable support. You do not want to have to scoot down in the spa-like you do in a bathtub. When sitting in any seat, the water should reach shoulder level. If it does not, you will not get full hydrotherapeutic value. Stay in the spa with the jets on for at least 15 minutes. At the end of that time, you will know whether the seating and jet arrangements are comfortable and whether a Sundance Spa is right for you.
