My wife and I completed the installation of our A5L on January 4 , 2016, and have only missed using it 6 nights from then till now (July 24/16). It is absolutely the most perfect purchase we have ever made. We live Canada in the woods, and have installed it in a rear cedar deck about 20″ above the deck level. This allows the corner spa lights to illuminate on the deck. We have total privacy, and sitting out back looking up at the stars and the meteorite shows is phenomenal. The tub is unbelievably comfortable, even for myself at 6′. Our hydro bill averages about $15-$18.00 per month to maintain it year round at 99 degrees, which is far less than other tubs we inquired about. We went with the platinum interior and the white exterior. It is a perfect combination. We tried chlorine for the 1st 3 months, then switched to bromine to see which we preferred. We have decided bromine is our personal choice. We can’t say enough good things about it. Thank you Bullfrog.
