This is our first hot tub. To be honest with you, I didn’t want it, my wife did. We have owned our Rythm for seven months and I couldn’t be happier with it. I use it more than my wife does. At least four days a week. We are nearing the end of a Chicago winter. We love getting in on those cold nights. It’s hard for me to compare it to other hot tubs since this is our first one. I do like the fact that each seat has different jet configurations to give you a different experience in each seat. I can tell you that I am very happy with the easy maintenance. I just add a little chlorine after each use, clean the filter every two to three weeks, and wipe the inside down once a month. Water looks great.
