How Do QCA Spas Stack Up Against The Competition?
Let's see how QCA Spas compare to other spa businesses by taking a look at some of the pros and cons of going with this company.
All of the QCA spas come with the Energy Saver System which uses heat produced by friction in the motor and pump to heat the hot tub. In other companies' tubs, this heat is vented to get rid of it, but QCA models trap it in the cabinet and along with a good layer of insulation, this trapped heat helps to heat the shell and maintains the water temperature. This saves plenty of energy and keeps energy bills down, in fact, all of their models exceed the stringent mandates for energy efficiency set out by the California Energy Commission.
M-7 technology is featured in all the 4KW spa heaters which protect them from overheating, meaning less service and repairs are needed. All QCA Spa shells are built using four-layer Dura-Bond construction making the spa shells strong and durable. Best of all, each of the QCA spas are covered by a comprehensive warranty.
QCA Spas have had excellent reviews from clients who have purchased their spas. This business's customer service team has been helpful and will answer any questions they can about your newly purchased spa.
Of course with any large business, there will always be some customers who have had a negative experience and left a bad review. Some people have reported problems with the delivery of their tub and bad experiences with the customer service team.
For some of the cheaper spa models, some customers have found the tub is relatively fragile. Without proper care the bottom can disintegrate and in addition, the pump needs a regular service to work properly. There have been other reports of the cover not fitting properly and the power cord being much shorter than advertised.
The Final Verdict
The QCA Spas Company has been in business for several decades, with great customer service. This business offers a large range of hot tubs that are durable and high-quality. When it comes to energy efficiency, they have it covered.
They have models to suit every budget from cheaper and smaller plug-and-play tubs to fully customizable, high-end, luxury tubs. Whatever your hot tub requirements, you will be sure to find the perfect model for your individual needs.
