My wife and I built our new home 5+ years ago and had a 5 year plan for a new hottub. A nice one! Well, we stayed on track and ordered one last July 2020. Covid.

Well, after 13-14 months of patiently waiting, the call came that the tub arrived and they are installing it TODAY!!! Wife is ecstatic!

FIVE YEAR PLAN

We ordered a Utopia Cantabria 7-8 person tub with the Tuscan Sun / Brownstone coloring. It's cool looking and matches the house!

Well, they got here and I had pucker factor watching them drag it across the yard on it's long end (9') - up onto our patio and across. They then spun it around and laid it by the conduit we had installed when we poured the patio knowing this was coming. (I don't like wires everywhere so why not hide them in preparation! (Smart!))

All is going great! It will need to be shimmed due to the angle of the patio for water runoff. No biggie.

Then as they take off the plastic wrap, cardboard AND styrofoam, BAM!!! a forklift punctured through the bottom of the tub! WHAT A CROCK OF SHIT!!!! Talk about letting the wind out of my sail!!!!

This fucking thing was NOT Cheap!!!! My wife DREAMED of this and I made sure not QUESTION HER on this purchase!!! (I knew that I had spent a lot more over our marriage without her even realizing!!!! This is a no-brainer!!!) $20k for a hottub - albeit a gorgeous one with all sorts of shit on it, fountains, led lighting, etc! But hey, my bride is worth it!!!

Now to see what they are going to do about it. Oh the problems of my life...

I am about 6yrs ahead of you. You can have ours it's a 8 person too..it was used pretty well the 1st three years.nobody uses it now and I am tired of buying chemicals and maintaining it....I can't give the damn thing away...good thing my truck came in..I see a chain saw and the dump in its future.

I am sure they will get you another one eventually..Good Luck!

I don’t know how they would miss that damage before delivery. The holes left from a forklift are pretty unmistakable and obvious. Unless it happened in the factory before being packaged and then still how would it leave the factory.

For what it cost I would want my money back and order elsewhere.
