In deep water wrote:Buying a spa with the biggest heater is a ridiculous statement and even ones with a lot of pumps is not always the best way to go. For one, most spas use either a Laing type heater or the old standard 2 to 3" S/S tube type with a 5.5kw heating element,even the Laings are 5.5kw Unless you go gas your only get so much heat out of the element. You want your heater to stay on all the time with all pumps running, go with a 60 amp breaker and a good quality spa. I believe some of the Artesians with 5 pumps wont allow the heater to run even on 60 amps?
Best advice is to go with a spa that fits you and your needs specially if budget is not a factor. The brands mentioned are all nice spas and they all for the most part use similar heaters.
