Software appears to work, but I was unable to update it because of a malfunction. Do Not expect help form the vendor, as a matter of fact you will be fortunate to recieve an answer from them. In short buy at your own risk!!!

Summary: Useful for maintenance, not for purchase of a spa
Rating: 3

This is helpful to understand the operations and "guts" of a hottub/spa, but not helpful in making decisions on which brand or type to buy initially. Once you have one, it is helpful in doing repairs yourself, and optimally maintaining it.

Summary: Easy to read and understand. It answered all my questions.

I own all of Tamminen's excellent pool and spa books. While I'm not a pool professional, I am a do-it-yourself person. Any question I have about installation, maintenance, and upkeep, I find the answers in Tamminen's books. I recommend this book to anyone with a spa or a hot tub. You'll find what you're looking for every time.

Summary: Don't waste your money on this one

If you are looking for info on Spas and Hot Tubs, don't buy this book.
Most of the info and photos are for Pools and the info on pools is outdated. The only time you see spas explained is when they are part of a pool!
This looks like a 1970's book on Pools reprinted with a new cover showing spas. I was looking for info on Portable spa heaters and pumps. The book goes into great detail on gas!!! fired water heaters, and concrete???? spas!!!!
For all of you Portable spa owners…….beware!!!!!!

Please appreciate my work, download from my references!!!
