The spa has a poor design.Very hard to Prime the pumps also when it has the Cascade waterfall feature cover does not open easily and is not designed for a cover lifter.
When a cover lifter is installed for a spa it is to make it open with ease this does not happen. The cost on parts it's very high because this product comes from Canada. As much as I love Canada, this is a crummy Spa.
Most of them are too heavy to be carted in and need a crane to install.take it from me I'm a professional delivery guy
