The electrical repair service was charging me $300

It was my plan to purchase a second-hand hot tub.

  • I knew it wasn’t a wise purchase, but one of my friends from work knew a guy that knew a guy.

I didn’t inquire much about the hot tub. It was in fantastic shape and I saw pictures of it running. I wasn’t sure if the hot tub had tepid water or not, but the guy selling it assured me that the tepid water would work just fine. The concern with the hot water turned out not to be the main issue with the hot tub. The main issue with the tepid tub was the fact that none of the lights were working. The hot tub was still cool and neat. But without any lights it wasn’t as fun. None of the inside lights work under the water section where the Jets were located. None of the lights above the water worked either. I had to phone an electrical repair person to repair the lights. The electrical repair person told me that it was going to be $300 to repair all the lights. None of the wiring for the electricity was hooked up at all and it was going to take several hours for the electrician to take the tepid tub apart and repair all of the faulty lights. I only paid two hundred dollars for the tepid tub. At that point, I chose to take the hot tub to the dump. I was not going to pay the electrical repair person another 300 bucks so it was best to take it to the dump.
