I have an opportunity to pick-up and older spa that works perfectly, almost
free, but it is UGLY.
My thought was this, maybe there is a way to refinish the interior of the

Input appreciated !
One of my friends had it done. HE got a company that usually refinishes
bathtubs to do it. They had never done a spa before. Think it cost him about
a thousand dollars. This is pretty cheap really.
You can do it yourself, with a two part epoxy refinishing kit, but I would
also drop a hundred bucks on something called an Ozonator -- it injects a
stream of ozone into the circulating pump. The ozone disinfects the water,
so you don't need to use the bromine. I'm not sure how the refinish would
stand up to the hard chemicals. But with the refinish, and the ozonator, you
should be fine. Is it acrylic or the poly?
Geez. Haul it to a boat yard or decent auto body shop. It's usually
acrylic and can be painted with any number of products. Dupont Imron
makes a beautiful spa finish.
Note that scratches show if the color is changed, and the paint is
less durable than an acrylic finish, but maybe a few hundred bucks
would get a top of the line finish.
