    Don't get dejected, I'm sure that happens with pinball machines too.

    Sold. I need to get another hot tub.

    #158 11 months ago

    Here is how you handle this. Buy a used tub on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. Lots of people buy $5-6K hot tubs and are happy getting rid of them 2 years later for $1500 to $2K. Take the remainder and buy a pinball.

    Bromine tabs are your friend and shock once every 7 to 10 days and you are in business. SpaDepot.com is your eqivilent of Pinballlife.com

    I have had a hot tub since 1998 and will never be without one.

    I don't use mine much anymore, but like last night when my back was killing me I was glad I could get in it for a while.

    For some reason a hot tub is not quite as appealing as it once was.

    Just because those ladies are laughing doesn't mean it's at you.

    Looks like a cool O-din high school reunion party me?

    #164 10 months ago

    Think about stewing in other peoples body juices. Unless it comes with a hot naked chic I am not interested in a hot tub. I am married, and she isnt hot, so that leaves me out right there.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    When I moved back to my hometown I saw an old lady in the grocery store that looked familiar. At first I couldn't place her then realized we were in first or second grade together..

    I have also learned don't go searching old girfriends on the internet or you may not like what you find.

    Imagine soaking in giant bath during winter with 20 jets massaging your every muscle while smoking a $50 stogie and a dram of Pappy while watching your favorite nfl team decimate the opposition in 7.1 surround sound while getting some good loving from your life partner..... also rgb lighting.

    Unfortunately im a Jets fan.

    My hot tub has been now stalled because of weather for over a month. I am a sad man!

    Still have one at our vacation home but haven’t used it in a long time.

    Wife said she is only going in naked.

    For about 5 years in a row long ago I set up a tv at the jacuzzi, and rigged a table over part of it, and had pizza and beer while watching the Super Bowl.

    I only stopped doing that when I quit paying for the cable box at the jacuzzi. And now it is a pain in the ass to take a cable box out of here, hook it up out there, then bring back and hook up again.

    And I could barely hear the tv over the jets anyway.

    I am glad I have a jacuzzi even though not used much anymore. When my back is hurting it is awesome.

    Use a ROKU or other streaming device assuming your cable company has a streaming app. We switched all of our TVs over to a ROKU for this. Makes it a lot easier to watch TV in the garage or at camp.

    I think a hot tub can save you money when it is cold outside.

    I was just in mine for a hour, and in the house now and I am still hot and will not need the furnace to run for a long time.

    The worst thing about a hot tub for me is it feels so good it is hard to get out.

    To make myself get out in a certain amount of time I carry however much beer to it as I plan to sit in it.

    So if going to be in a long time, taking a cooler full. Short time just 2, so after 2 I am damn, I do not want to get out, but I am ready for another beer.

    And it all depends on who you are with. My girlfriend is not here tonight, and will be gone with her Mom a few days so I will be in the jacuzzi a lot.

    When my girlfriend is here she loves pinball and arcade games and cares less for the jacuzzi so unless my back is hurting bad I stay indoors and play games with her.

    Kind of like my boat rarely gets used anymore because my girlfriend does not care much about fishing.

    The girlfriend before her loved the jacuzzi and fishing and we were always doing one or the other a lot.

    But no matter what, if I am having some pain, I am in the jacuzzi for a while.

    And been a while, but having some pain, and damn that jacuzzi was just so awesome. Like 10 minutes a month average to keep it in good shape, and it is ready when needed.

    As far as the original subject, hot tub first, so you can relax and think about what pin you really want.

    Any Bullfrog brand owners? Those movable jet packs seem pretty neat. I like the idea of changing them according to seat height or lounger.

    Thanks! Good to hear.
    These things are pretty pricey, and as mentioned, lose nearly all value, so choosing wisely is a concern.

    Bought a used hot tub this summer. Play some of my machines in the evening, and then for the price of a cheap ss, get to relax in the tub for an hour or so before bed, perfect bliss and less maintenance to boot!

    #180 52 days ago

    Did you post this same thing in a hot tub lovers forum?

    #181 46 days ago

    We have been looking at Bullfrog but the two person lounger as only have limited room for one and unable to get 220v so would be the plug in one
