Just found this!

Fairly easy to look after, but quite expensive. Scratch that , very expensive! smile

We got ours when dh cashed in some of his extra pension payments that he will not live to collect.....sound dramatic, but you know what I mean.

We put in two bromine tablets twice a week, change the filters every two weeks, check the pH and bromide levels 1/2 times a week, and add extra cemicals as required.

Last lot of water last us about 4.5 months, we drained it, and refilled it after the holiday.

It is garet, and really helps dh's pains and helps us all to relax. the kids love it! And so do their mates

We have a Jaccuzzi brand, which so far has been excellent.

You can't *really justify the cost, but I am ever so glad we got one IYSWIM!
