free spa!

January 26th, 2009 at 09:45 pm

We have a (very generous) friend of DF's that has been running his own spa installation and repair business for many years now. He makes awesome money (think, $8k a week in profit) but blows it all on a party lifestyle with his GF. The GF recently found out she is pregnant, and I think they have started to cut back in areas.
At the Australia Day BBQ yesterday our friend, M, mentioned as a housewarming gift he would give us a spa. GIVE us a spa. A 'several person spa'.
M has about 5 secondhand ones that need repairs. The previous owners were all rich, hardly ever used them, and when something broke that needed fixing, they just told him to install a better, bigger one. He said all we'd have to do is pay for anything that costs for repairs, which is usually tubing or fixings. He would install it for us and service it when we needed.
WOOHOO! Although, I am not an idiot. I realise we will have to pay for chlorine and other things to upkeep it. But it's a small price to pay when you think about the fact that I sometimes PAY to use spas at hotels with friends. So technically it will be saving me money...

Anyway. I'm not going to get too excited about it. (well...)
It could take awhile. And I'll have to work it into the budget. Smile

Oh and on another note, for our housewarming party, he has already volunteered to bring his portable spa (fits about 10-12 people) that he rents out to people. How exciting.

    I have one and the chemicals aren't really that expensive. It doesn't use as much of them as you think.
