Bogus Hot Tub Traders

Posted on September 26, 2007 by , in 2. Hot Tubs & Gazebos

It has come to our attention from a number of our readers that there seems to be a growing number of hot tub traders with an online and/or online auction site presence that are offering deals on hot tubs that seem to be too good to be true.  We would urge caution when looking at these kind of sites as we have emails from a growing number of hot tub buyers who have fallen for the “inflated RRP just to discount back down again” tricksters who are offering substandard and often illegal cheap imports from the far east that do not meet CE standards.

As ever, do your research and ideally insist on wet testing a hot tub before you commit your hard earned savings to it.  Please ensure that you pay at least £100 of either the deposit or final balance by credit card and also thoroughly check the credentials of potential suppliers as you may get stuck with a very expensive water feature if your supplier disappears and you have no access to spare parts.

 To be confident of good and continuous after-sales support, visit your local retailers, wet test their hot tubs and choose from a local supplier who will be a more reliable source of after-sales support. Also look for the WhatSpa? Approved manufacturer and retailer logos before buying with confidence.
