I am so glad we decide to purchase our spa locally with Blackthorne! Mel was extremely knowledgeable in helping us select our spa. The delivery crew did an incredible job as well! Now that we have had the spa for a month Blackthorne has been extremely helpful balancing the water! We greatly appreciate their commitment to costumer satisfaction!

After visiting the local competition, we were very impressed with the experience we had. The sales person, Mel is VERY knowledgeable and friendly. He is a person that enjoys what he does and it shows. All of our interactions with customer server to schedule the install date and take care of the financing were courteous and professional. Jonathon and his team that showed to install the tub were very efficient, friendly and, helpful. They took time to help me understand the setup and continued maintenance. We are very happy with our purchase and have since recommended Blackthorne to friends.

Herbie was great. I bought this hot tub off of craigslist and Herbie came out got everything running. He showed me how to do some of the work myself if I wanted to in the future. Still need to purchase a new cover from them. Will hopefully be in there within the next month or so.

Blackthorne came to my rescue! Had guests arriving in a couple of hours at a very high end home and guess what ? Yes the hot tub went on the blink, not a good situation. After making several distress calls to other Pool/Spa establishments to no avail, luckily I ran across Blackthorne !!! They not only went into full "get her done mode" but also with a "how can I help " attitude. At the end of the day, the emergency was averted , and my bank account was still in place (very very reasonable pricing) and the world was a better place. I'm a committed Blackthorne customer. My encouragement to you is start with the 5 Star from the beginning, that would be Blackthorne Pools and Spas.

Always good service, extremely professional, and very easy to work with. A couple of years ago, I moved into a house with a pool and knew nothing about up-keep or maintenance. Blackthorne came and quickly took care of me at great prices and worked hard to get that old pool looking and working great!!! Very happy with these guys.

I have an older Hotspring Sovereign spa, originally purchased from Blackthorne about 10 years ago and it had been becoming a bit trouble prone - scale, clogging filters - and finally just stopped working altogether. I just let it sit, unused, for quite a while, having grown tired of constantly trying to get the chemistry right and seeing scale floating around in the water no matter what I did. I finally decided to get it fixed as I missed being able to hop in whenever I wanted to, figuring I would just have to live with being a chemist on the side. Herbie came out to do a final inspection of the cleaning and repair and when I whined to him about the upkeep on the spa, Herbie suggested I check out the FreshRain system, which eliminates the need for chemicals completely. I asked him to install one for me and he did so within 24 hours. The water is now perfectly clear and smells fresh 100% of the time. No shock, no testing, no ph adjusting! All I have to do is hose off the filters regularly. I can handle that. Great, personalized service from Herbie and all at Blackthorne - always!

Jonathon with Blackthorne Pools has worked admirably to repair and restore my 23 year old hot tub. He was knowledgeable and professional in his approach to solving the problem. He took notes on the parts needed and said he would have an estimate for me within a day or two. After receiving the estimate I ordered the repairs. They were completed within the time frame given and the spa worked as well as when it was first purchased in 1989. I feel I received 5 star service. Many thanks to Jonathon at Blackthone Spas.
