Product Overview

Soothe away sore muscles in this spa that seats up to 8 people. Invite family and friends over for a cookout and showcase your spa. Contoured multi-level seating, walk-in steps and a large foot-well are just a few of the features of this QCA Spa. The Salerno spa utilizes an ever efficient heat recovery system, saving valuable natural resources. This frictional heat recovery system uses the heat generated by the action of the pump and motor to heat your spa.

The Salerno hot tub features (2) 4.2 HP BT (2.5 HP CD) Hi-flow energy efficient pumps with 60 two tone graphite jets. The spa shell is manufactured with Lucite-Xtra Acrylic and a 3 layer shell strengthening process called Dura-Bond. The easy to care for Lucite-Xtra Acrylic is the gold standard of spa durability.

Customer Questions & Answers

can this be installed in ground?

Asked by: Jim
No we do not advise that. It can be too difficult to access the plumbing and other issues can arise.

Does the cover come with the Hot Tub or does it have to be purchased separately?

How do I get an estimate for a custom installation, dropped into the middle of an existing wood deck?

Asked by: Anonymous
You will have to contact a local contractor. A normal wood deck probably wont support a 2 ton hot tub.

Customer Reviews

Salerno 8-Person 60-Jet Spa with Ozonator, LED Light, Polar Insulation, Collar Jets and Hard Cover is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovin. it We love the hot tub. It arrived in great shape and was running an hour later. I'm an electrician and have it on its own meter to see what it really costs, I've had it a month now (July) and it used 268 KWH, ($47 here) only heating it 6 or 7 days. Anxious to see what it costs in January! (if I can edit this, I'll post it!). It holds the heat well, so keeping it hot may not cost any more, but we use it to cool off in the summer. You can't shut the heat off, only turn it down to 80. Ambient temperature and sunshine keeps it high 80's low 90;s without heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Customer: Pacific Northwest I purchased this product in 2012 (writing review early 2014) and am very happy the the results. Highlights are the jets, light options, quick heating, and seating options. The tub is great for 1-2 people. Just caveat the 8-person title with the fact that rising water and foot room makes it a little tough to even seat 4 adults in the tub at once. Would have loved to had a better head rest, but that is something I'm sure I can get as an add-on. Overall, the quality of the tub/jets and heating/lighting is what you pay for and it delivers. I installed the tub as part of a deck (sits down 1 foot) which helps for access in/out. Would recommend to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for Buck - Many high end features/components for the money I have only had this tub for a couple weeks, but the family loves it! This tub replaced an older existing tub. The bang for the buck is second to none(amount of jets and quality pumps/components.) I really researched this tub and company along with many others and this company was by far the best! Prior to purchasing I spoke with the support staff form QCA 2 or 3 times, they were wonderful. I have also spoken to them since the purchase to clarify I few features and they answer the phone and take as much time as you need. All the Jets are fully adjustable to customize the right amount of pressure. The description of the LED light does it no justice, the light rotates through 7 colors and even has a strobe. I would recommend this tub for the first time spa owner or some one who has owned previous spas, you will not be sorry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from hot tub review We have had this hot tub for 3 months now, It is a very nice and comfortable hottub, BUT, we have noticed that the motor rumbles loudly, when it goes on, weve learned that the bolts were not tightened down tightly, that fixed the rumbling, and also if you live in an area where it gets COLD!!! (ok freezing) this hottub is not insulated hardly at all, We had to insulate it ourselves, and that worked just fine, now it does not turn on as much,, I still would recommend this hottub, just a few minor adjustments and we are all good to go, well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate in Relaxation The Salerno Spa arrived as promised. The delivery was left curbside as stated, and we needed to move it ourselves to where it would be set. The setup was easy once the electrical was in place. We love using it year-round, and we have owned it over a year with no issues to date. I highly recommend this model. It has plenty of jets and is more comfortable than a Jacuzzi lounger model I used to own. It definitely does not seat 8 people comfortably, unless you don't mind body contact with everyone, but this is the same for most if not all spas. It has 7 seats with the 8th being the step. We had 4 to 5 people comfortable in it. Overall, a good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this is a great buy! I have had my tub for 1 month. I have used this tub everyday with no problems. I do wish I could turn it all the way off without having to flip the emergency shut-off breaker, (purchased separately) but required. My DIYer husband was able to run the wire from our homes breaker box to emergency shutoff and to tub after an internet search and some advice from home depot associates. Has good power,but kinda wish I went for more jets and the WOW speakers. May need to add more insulation for winters, but so far it has been adequate.
