Full Answer

Coast Spas is a Canadian company. It developed a unique, closed-and-pressurized filtration system for its spa units that removes water contaminants from the bathing area, so the water is as clean as possible. Each spa comes with a standard, self-cleaning sweeper jet mounted to the floor of the spa to replace the more traditional manual spa vacuums. The company is well-known for its innovative spa tub designs, and the Coast Spas brand of tubs was the first to offer installed stereo systems with the spa tubs. The runner-up brands of spa tubs, Bullfrog Spas out of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Hot Springs Spas headquartered in Vista, Calif., both offer competitive products that are similar to those for sale from Coast Spas. While their products may be just as good as those from Coast Spas, it is important to remember the first-place rating for Coast Spas includes things such as customer service and reputation factors.

    How do you move a hot tub?

    A:

    Although the task of moving a hot tub is best left to expert movers, the job can be done with the help of several strong individuals to do the heavy lifting and a few tools to make moving the tub relatively easier. A hot tub can weigh anywhere between 1,200 to 1,500 lbs., so care must be taken to ensure the safety of both the movers and the hot tub.
