Artesian – Brand Review

Artesian – Brand Review

I like Artesian in general, they build good spas the way they should be built. I’ve had a behind the scenes look at these guys, I was allowed to visit and check out their main factory and I liked what I saw. Great self supporting shells, a quality part lists and the plumbing is clamped and set up to last without leaks.

It is always a good sign when a company is open about how it does things, they are a small factory but are doing all the right things and using the same build quality on all the lines. So I am comfortable with keeping them on the A-list.

Their high end is still built great but the performance at the upper end isn’t quite up to par with some others like the Twilight Series by Master. It all comes down to what you are looking for though.

As they are smaller and the factory doesn’t deal with customers directly it is also important to check that you have good on the ground service options near you.

Hello Chris, I am currently looking at purchasing the Tidalfit Pro EP 15 swim spa by Artesian. Can you advise if it is a good product. I am comparing to the H2X Trainer 15 Deep. With so much confusing information online, I would greatly appreciate your advice. Thank you in advance.

Currently looking at the 965L South Seas Spa from a local dealer who has been in the business for over 20 years. The warranty is only 3 years and that concerned me. Also looked at a Jacuzzi J375 and of course Costco Evolution Spas Oxford not sure if Costco spas are getting better than your initial review.

No mass merchants are what they are, the product is too complex for them they screw it up again and again…

South Seas is artesian, 3 years is standard, anyone offering you more than that has just built the extended warranty into the price, the guarantee is almost always more an indication of you paying for it than any quality issues Im pretty sure the south seas would sell you additional years for $200-$300 a year if you wanted it.

HI Chris. I am so glad I found your site – too bad I didn’t find it earlier because i’ve spent hours upon hours trying to educate myself and sort out all of the BS i’ve been feed by various retailers. My question is about Artesian Spas sub-brand, Tropic Seas. My budget doesn’t allow for the cost of a Master Spa 7.2 (~ $9500), but the TS-Maui is more affordable at ~$7k. My comparisons seem to indicate similar qualities such as clamped connections, PVC base, full Icynene insulation, etc. What do you see as any weaknesses or areas of concern… Read more »

Hey John

When I toured the factory this winter my big concern was they were building the entry level lines to a lower spec. they seem to have a good build quality right across the board.

I would have a look at the Clarity or getaway lines from these guys it will compare nicely.
