Absolutely zero aftercare... but happy to take your money
Waited 14 weeks for a mini plunge pool to arrive, unpacking I noticed there was only 2 large jets instead of 3 like all the pics and pool specs say. Up to over 5 weeks now and have not even received a call back from anyone that will even remotely try and solve this problem. They just keep palming it off to another department who in the end just dont give a damn about it.
They are quite happy to take your money then forget about you straight after. Am not going to fill the pool only for them to drain it again to fit another jet... I just want to use my bloody spa!!
Run a mile from this company
It was four months before our spa arrived and it had numerous leaks and problems. Their customer service is non existent. Such a terrible company after they have your money.
Old age will get me before the warranty claim is processed.
It took 18 months to get 1 LED light and 3 speakers changed and now the heating element is down to earth, the store owner on the Gold Coast is useless, hasn't returned my calls once. I have to deal with the Cranbourne store in Victoria to get something happening. If I had my time again I would've gone elsewhere.
Poor service and defected product but not fixing the issue
I purchased a new SPA from Spa Direct in June 2021. It was delivered by SPA Direct sales consultant by himself. We found the crack in the bottom but Spa Direct now fusing to refund or replace. I am in to legal action. Be careful when buy SPA from them.
Terrible aftercare customer service on faulty spa.
Bought in May. Bluetooth stereo has never worked and one jet faulty/broken. Worst aftercare customer service ever!! (Still not fixed/replaced) so frustrating. Regret buying from here!! WANT OUR MONEY BACK!!
Excellent aftercare service
Professional and thorough work done by the gentleman sent out to fix our spa on Friday afternoon. He was very knowledgeable and thorough with his whole approach to the problem.
Terrible service and faulty products.
Purchased a spa and sauna. The lights and speakers have never worked I the spa and have been waiting 3 months to get repaired. When I unpacked the sauna there was a hole in a panel which you can clearly see has been done with a forklift and they refuse to take responsibility for.
Happy with our spa
The heater is not working however spas direct Warranty claim has been honoured and we are once again happy , Cannot live without our spa . It looks great and the jets are powerful .
A Sad Experience
Sadly one star is all I can offer spas direct.
We purchased our spa in oct and was advised 6-8 weeks for delivery. Late Nov we were advised the spa won't arrive until Jan.
We emailed the company as this wasn't what we were advised and could hopefully come up with a resolution such as a different spa in stock, however our email was ignored. We then contacted them through Facebook and received the most horrible customer service. The person was sarcastic and just plain rude.
Thankfully Mufta from the Perth branch contacted us and said he had ...another spa in stock which was exactly like the one we ordered and we can have that one. We were so grateful to have a positive outcome. Sadly the spa was delivered and once filled with water that night we noticed we cannot turn the temp up or down. This also means we cant set any functions such as eco mode. The spa is set to 35 degrees and that's pretty hot on a Perth summers day! We tried to contact Mufta but he ignored us. We contacted the company and all they said was logde a warranty claim. We attempted to contact Mufta again and left a msg. But again was ignored. In the meantime we did lodge a claim and was advised a tech will be in contact on the Monday. Monday comes and goes no phone call. Contacted spas direct again and were advised claim will be passed onto warranty team and we will receive a call in a hour. No call but we did get an email saying warranty claim has been passed onto a tech. Another day passes but no phone call.
So glad we got this all going before lockdown
4 boys and lockdown driving them crazy, glad to have this bad boy up and running to keep us all entertained, one rule, mum gets 10 minutes to herself after a week of remote learning done
So nice and relaxing after a busy day.
Use our spa almost every night, it’s hard getting out now that the temperature has dropped.Even the kids like to relax in it now home schooling. easy to look after if looked after it regular.
We use our swim spa 4 to 5 times a week swimming and add chemicals once or twice a fortnight. Perfect for our small family. Great customer sevice and easy warranty claim.
Still waiting for service after 1 1/2 years
I am amazed by how many people have great service and for some reason I cannot get an answer for a ticket raised on May 21st 2018! Ticket number 423 raised 21st May 2018 in relation to replacing panels that were damaged on delivery - I have been contacted numerous times, had your technician here to look for himself, been promised resolution by a number of people, and yet on the 28th Feb 2019 still sit with damaged panels and no answer! Update, it is now the 13 September and this is still not fixed!
Great alternative to a pool
Easy to maintain great family entertainment the cost compared to a concrete pool are unbelievable
And if we decide to move we can take the swim spa with us to our new house
Spa still not working
Spa still not working had for 18 months has only been working for two off them. Been ask for a invoice number so they can help me. How about spa direct just help me and everyone they have sold a piece of crap spa.
