My wife stated that this was the second best investment in our marriage. The first a great mattress and now an Awesome Hot Tub. We never imagined we would ever have a hot tub. We do not party, are not very social and have a tendency to stay at home. As we get older we find the hot tub is an awesome place to relax in the evening and communicate. Our communication has greatly increased and this has enhanced our marriage even more so. We sleep better and wake up feeling more rested. I get in every morning just to loosen up and it’s much better than standing in a shower and adjusting water and turning. Just lay back and soak in the warmth. Rain, Snow, Heat never stops our time in the Hot Tub. It’s great every day. The cats even enjoy the cover from time to time.
