I have not filled it yet with water, just got it out and filled it with air.
To actually use it one needs starter chemicals ($100, GO w BROMINE !!! says the manual), test kit ($100), I got an additional ozonator ($100), I got some styrofoam to place underneath ($50) and....since Im keeping it indoors in the basement, a 2ndary pool to keep it in in case it leaks, ($100). (I cannot afford to find 250 gallons spilled in my basement.)...
I did notice that it would only work on a 20amp 110v circuit. A 15 amp will not cut it. Im hoping to fill it next week and start heating it. I also got the heavy duty cover ($75). So Plan on getting bromine and a test kit in addition to the spa.....Otherwise, it looks well made, and inflated fast. I will review on Youtube once I start using it. I would have bought the Mspa Tuscany frame model, but it was sold out and not found anywhere.
