Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had my hot tub installed on May 16th replacing the same model I had before. We love it. The newer model not only looks better but it runs so much quieter and is much more energy efficient!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best spa and seating/jet configuration around! Imagine Backyard in Scottsdale made me a great deal on my Sundance Optima spa. Imagine Backyard has been fair as far as price goes and even better as they have matched other businesses prices. This is my second Optima spa, my first was purchased 17 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Giving back to the body! I was a garbage man for 23 yrs on a rear-end loader and had a total of 5 shoulder surgery's which ended my career. This is what lead me to buying this spa which has not disappointed. Their's nothing better than putting on some music and enjoying the hot tub for 20 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Replacement of my 18 year Optima. Still learning how to use it.
Date published: 2016-10-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We've had our spa for about a month. I use it at least once at night, my wife sometimes twice a day. We both enjoy it immensely. I'm in the construction business and my wife is a hairdresser. On our feet a lot. It soothes all the aches and pains and I think I get a better nights sleep. I have pain in my feet and I like to rest them on the jets, it seems to help a lot. It took some dialing in with the chemicals but that was mostly my fault. I'm comfortable maintaining the chemistry now. 21st century pools and spas did a great job installing and getting me straightened out on the maintenance. I would highly recommend a sun dance spa!
