Answer: 
The tub does not come with a cord. You will need to purchase 6/3 cable ( 1 red, 1 black, 1 white and a ground ) to wire in from your 50A - GFCI breaker. You will need a qualified electrician to install.

This spa has to be hardwired to a power supply by an electrician using a neutrally protected Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI). This GFCI must be atleast 5 ft from spa water. Check with local municipalities for additional code requirments.

Answer: 
This spa is ozone ready. This means that an ozonator can easily be added at your request but does not come standard with an ozonator. You do have to request an ozonator after you place your order with Home Depot

Answer: 
This spa is rated around 550 lbs and holds 420 gal of water. One gallon of water is about 8.5 lbs. The manual recommends 2"x10" floor joists on 16" centers. I used 4"x4" piers about 4' deep and 2' above grade but wish I had used 6"x6"s

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Would not recommend. I've had a lot of frustration with the purchase of this QCA spa. However, the majority of my frustration was through the freight delivery service. The good: We've been using the hot tub for two weeks and it runs smoothly as expected. QCA has a knowledgable customer service staff who are very helpful. The bad: The documentation the hot tub comes with is very lacking. The maintenance guides are well laid out and easy to understand but they are very light on installation information. I expected to see a guide on how to access the pump, filter, electrical termination lugs, etc but that was all missing. There was a lot of confusion between the model/product listed on Home Depot's web site and QCA's web site and subsequent documentation-- nothing matched. I believe my biggest commplaint is the cheaply designed user interface device; I feel like I'm using a digital Casio watch from 1982. I think the most annoying part of the user interface is the adjustment of temperature which is not intuitive at all. The jet nozzless feel like they are made of cheap plastic that can break easily. The hot tub cost nearly $5k and, honestly, expected a chemical starter kit-- nope, that's $100 extra.. The ugly: Delivery was a nightmare. QCA contracted Yellow freight to deliver the hot tub who sent me a delivery date with an 8 hr window. I called them one day in advance to ensure the delivery date and they confirmed so I took the day off work to wait....and it never came. Yellow told me there was a mix up and they actually delivered to a local delivery service with a smaller truck who would bring to my house in a few days. The local delivery service called to schedule the delivery two days later but told me I would have to help the driver unload the hot tub myself because they weren't equipped with manpower to assist. I could either help unload it myself or there would be another approx. week long delay while they bill for more man hours with Yellow. So the driver and I wrestled it out and we noticed a fork had torn up the spa cover. I didn't accept the spa cover and it's been nearly 3 weeks and QCA says they won't ship me a new cover until they receive the damaged one. Anyway our new hot tub looks way cool with a blue tarp over it. Good advice: I saw the hot tub had a nearly one month lead time so I ordered it before I had a deck completed. When figuring out your construction schedule, be warned it showed up one week earlier than expected. They don't mention how to access the pump motor, electrical termination lugs, etc.- there's a removable panel under the digital control panel that can be removed without tools. This is key in determining how to orient the spa when you have friends over to help you move it. That leads me into offering more adice- determine ahead of time how you'll physically move the hot tub from the front of your house where the delivery service is contracted to leave it. I bought two utility wagons and placed them back to back and secured them with 2x4's to make a sled that could steer from either side. That sounds overkill but this hot tub was nearly 600 lbs and very bulky. Better adivce: Buy a hot tub from your local hot tub/pool vendor. June 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Best Body Saver Ever We had wanted to purchase a spa for years, finally got one about three years ago. We chose the (Palmero), from OCA and the Home Depot. We still say it is the best thing we have ever bought. January 19, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BIG SPA I purchased this spa from Home Depot to get the great financing deal. I was pleased with the spa when I received it. It was BIG, spacious, deep, had the AUX input to listen to music and heated up within 20 minutes. We enjoyed the spa and STILL enjoy the spa; however, within a year, we had to replace the speakers and had to have someone come out and look at the control since the timer function was not working correctly. QCA insured the work on the timer but I had to pay to fix the speakers. Honestly, for the price you can get a more quality spa. The exterior trim is generic, the radio is generic, the spa does not have smooth edges and there is no valve to empty the jacuzzi from the bottom. I was very uneducated on spas when I purchased this one and if I had to do it all over again, I will definitely do my research! March 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Comfort! After a long day. it's great to sink into our Hot tub. Quality and good looks, this tub has both! It's one of the deepest tubs we found while shopping around. We wouldn't be without it. Thanks again for making a reliable product! March 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tub I have only had tub for 2 weeks but so far very pleased. QCA has been making tubs since the 60s and it shows. Everything seems to fit and have a place. Well put together and thought out. Had to have it craned over my house to get to deck. Crane operator said he installs up to 5 a week and was impressed on how spa came packaged and ready to go. I like the 2 separate pumps so my husbands side can have jets running while mine don't. I had a question about product before I purchased and QCA was easy to get a hold of and answered my questions adequately. My husband suggests you have Ozone Generator installed at factory as it is somewhat confusing where to plug into unit. Reason I rated only 4 stars is due to control panel. For such a great tub and high tech electronics used inside the tub, the control panel is VERY basic and doesn't provide any information on lcd except temperature of tub. December 12, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SCANT INSTRUCTIONS AND I MEAN SCANT THE HOT-TUB ITSELF IS GREAT BUT THERE IS HARDLY ANY INSTRUCTIONS ( AN OPERATING DVD OR ONLINE SOMETHING WOULD BE NICE)...THERE'S JUST A SHORT PAGE ON WHAT CERTAIN CODES MEAN ON THE DISPLAY AND THATS IT...NO STARTOFF CHEMICALS OR ANY INSTRUCTIONS ON CHEMICALS OTHER THAN A BROUCHURE ON WHAT YOU CAN BUY. July 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Lot of Tub for the Money The jets are well positioned and with 2 pumps - powerful. The overall ergonomics is well thought out. Very nice product rivaling tubs at twice the price. May 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! great value, simple design so less to break, but very comfortables so far no complaints. December 27, 2011
