    Best place to buy a refurb or blemishes hot tub?

    I've seen some online but seems the prices are the same as new ones. I bought one cheap from craigslist, but several leaks in the piping. Thoughts on having someone repair all that? Heater and most jets work.

    AG vinyl 18x33 oval, 15,000 gal. Single speed aquamaster/Clearwater 19" 1hp multi valve. Looking for recommended test kit. Installed June 2013. Just south of Birmingham, AL

    Self repair is your best bet, otherwise you'll spend more on repairing than you saved for buying used. It depends on whether the leaks are in the seals or in the piping itself. Seals/o-rings are easy. Replumbing can be tedious.

    If you're looking for a great test kit, the TF-100 from is the best bang for your buck. Higher up front cost but has more of the reagents you'll need. You can also see a comparison of recommended test kits here: Test Kits Compared
