My Hamilton has been up and running for a few days now and I’m really enjoying it so far. I had an old (1992) Cameo and the seating layout in the Hamilton is the same but the selection and configurability of jets in the Hamilton is soooo much better. Having two pumps for the jets is great; The ability to turn certain individual jets off and on is really nice and lets you customize your “hydrotherapy experience”. The synthetic cabinet looks great and I’m hoping it will prove to be very durable.
I’m not wild about the setup of circulation and filter/heat cycles because you are limited to “n-times per day” cycles and cannot set the actual start and stop times for various functions. Additionally, if you choose an “economy” mode, the heater WILL NOT RUN even if you are using the spa (i.e. have pushed one of the jets buttons) if you are outside of one of the programmed heating cycles. This makes no sense to me- if the heat drops below the setpoint when the tub is actually in use, the heater should come on.
The “waterfall” feature is silly in my opinion, and the pillows are kind of hard.
