    All right, the Beeb never fails except when it comes to figuring out how to get Toe' laid. I figure at least one of you works at a hot tub dealership. Want a small one for behind my townhouse, I can get a 220 line out there easily enough. Main thing I need to know is which brands to look for. I know Hot Springs just from reputation is supposed to be awesome, but that's the extent of my knowledge. What are the other brands I need to be looking in to or should be avoiding at all costs?

    We've got an 8-person model from Hot Springs. It's probably nearly 20 years old, but still works like a champ. Paying more up front is better than paying for service all the time. Our neighbors bought an off-brand during one of those "fairground blowout sales" and every time they need service it's been a nightmare for them. Buy a name brand from a reputable local dealer. You'll be glad you did.

    Yeah, I was definitely heading towards name brand. I just don't know what the major players are. I always thought Hot Springs were the best and seems like there are tons of stories of people with really old ones that are still functioning. But I'm sure there are some other quality ones out there I am not aware of.

    Don't invite Mongo over. It's fine when he's in there but
    once he gets out you'll find yourself belly button deep.

    You know what I love about doing hot tub installs?

    Going back 5 years later to disconnect it for the craigslist buyer to take it away. :D

    eggfooyoung You no eat more!

    Apple Pucker will do it too.

    Though I guess people frown upon finding bikini bottoms and empty bottles floating in their hot tubs, because that was the last time aunt Phyllis asked me to house sit.
