Well we are not shy of the fact, that we cannot imagine why anyone would choose a generic acrylic tub, over one of DaVinci Spas custom made, stainless steel soaking vessels. In general, we have found that the majority of home-owners, and even architects, are not aware that there even exists a company like DaVinci Spas that will design and build a custom tub from scratch! Please help us get the word out that there exists such a thing!
Of course, once you find out about DaVinci Spas, the next practical issue relates to your investment decision. Well, we hope to help you choose wisely.
Lets make a quick comparison list:
Custom-designed Stainless Steel Spa vs Catalog-selected Acrylic Spa
|Custom-designed Stainless Steel Spa||Catalog-selected Acrylic Spa|
|Size & Shape||Infinite sizes and shapes||very limited choices|
|Structure Durability||Incredibly strong structure. Lifetime warranty.||Structure with many weak areas susceptible to cracking. Limited warranty.|
|Finish Durability||Finish does not wear down||Finish begins to break down immediately|
|Cost||Slightly higher||Slightly lower|
|Value||Does not depreciate much over time||Loses value quickly as appearance deteriorates|
|Comfort||So comfortable, you won’t want to get out.||Not comfortable since it wasn’t designed around your body type and soaking preference.|
|“Greenness”||100% recyclable||Old tubs not recycled and end up in land fills|
||Amazing! Breathtakingly beautiful.||Ho hum. (You’d better hang a fabulous curtain in front of it.)|
Finally, lets do a quick pricing check:
An example of a good quality acrylic hydrotherapy tub is the Jason International, Designer Collection “Brittany” model BY630 which is a rectangular, drop-in tub 72″ long x 36″ wide x 20.5″ deep. With the whirlpool option (pump & heater), ozone generator, and waste/overflow plumbing, the list price is $ 5,170.
A custom-designed, DaVinci Spas, stainless steel tub of the same dimensions and with the same options has a wholesale price of $ 6,435. (design id: DVS-M13-B-10)
Therefore, for just under 25% more than the acrylic tub, you receive all of the benefits of a stainless steel spa.
