Marquis – Brand Review
Built right and unless you are looking at the crazy hi end massage spas like the Twilight series from Master then they are going to be as good… both these two brands are built the same way with the same great parts lists.
The Marquis has twin diverters and about 19 of the high flow jets, but no real neck jet system and no real foot jet system (those little low flow jets do not move anywhere near enough water to really do any good on feet or any big muscle mass). and a lot of the little inexpensive low flow jets.
What I like about Marquis, Artesian and Master is they spend the money on the hot tub. Hand rolled shells, an expensive parts list that you can source anywhere, lots of insulation, and glued and clamped plumbing… these four things make a big difference to long term durability.
There are a few lines you should probably avoid though like the vector 21 stuff. I love when real innovation comes down the pipe that really improves a product but from everything I can see this is not what vector 21 is.
This is a regular tub and all they did was change the parts so you cant buy them anywhere but from them and then put a bunch of stupid names for the parts to try and fool the public into thinking it is something unique and new. I see nothing here except BS marketing and slight of hand and yer stuck with a goofy parts list that will only be available from one source at whatever price they dictate. I would avoid the E-series for similar reasons.
Their Signature line is the best bet if you are going with Marquis.
