    I am now in the market for a hot tub. I need to know if anyone has certain brands or types that they love. What should I look for espcially in the light of my fibro. Jets? My shoulders, neck, arms and upper body seem to suffer the most due to my work. I have also read something about a different type of system other than chlorine? Something that doesn't cause chemical sensitivity? Does anyone know about that? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    I have FM also. We have a Sundance Capri jacuzzi (3 seater) that has 2 different types of jets. They really work wonders to get the knots out. I sometimes am in mine 2 times a day. Since my hubby & I can neither use the bromine, we use a Natures2 filter & a chlorine product. With the Natures2, you only use Spa Shock daily--no other chemicals are needed. (Saves BIG Bucks!!) I was just dx'd w/ chemical induced asthma & these chemicals don't bother me. There are a lot of brands out there--be specific about your needs when shopping. Good Luck & enjoy!

    Nancy, thanks for the answer. I recently had a bout of asthma that I have not had since I was a little girl so I am a bit afraid myself. And a hot tub is a huge expense! I appreciate the comment. Anyone else have a favorite?

    Does anyone know of a company that makes an especially deep hot tub that you can stand up in and it still covers your shoulders?
