I have never had a spa in my life, and though I am researching the
matter now, I am a little concerned about making an underinformed
purchase. The brand/model my wife and I are thinking seriously about
is the Marquis Mirage; I have generally heard good things about Marquis
spas, and my brother purchased one from the same shop I am considering,
and he has had good things to say.
I happened across a post in this newsgroup, however, where someone
asked about how to fool the their Marquis spa thermostat into heating
the spa to over 104 degrees (they said
they wanted it up around 107). Having no previous spa experience, I
don't know what temp I want, or what temp humans can bear before their
flesh peels off, but I'd hate to get a spa only to find I can only heat
it up to "lukewarm." Is this a problem/limitation with Marquis, or
just a general limitation imposed on all spa manufacturers by the
Any advice/opinions on this matter, or Marquis spas generally, or spa
purchases generally, are greatly appreciated by the wife and I!
