    Why do you think that? I’ve got a large exhaust fan installed and ready to pull out the moisture, moisture resistant drywall, and not done yet but I’ll put down some kind of floor tile.

      Even if you have your garage heated to indoor room temperatures, as soon as you lift the cover off, you're going to have a 30 degree difference(old school). You're going to have way more evaporation off the tub than even having a 20 minute shower. If the garage is not heated, it will be worse.

        If you are inside you don't need one the higher model. Some have very good isolation which obviously you don't need.

        So cost will be pumps (like Bern said) and jets. You should be able to get something decent . . . trust us (pump, jets and 220V) is really important . . .good luck.
        If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

          If you go with 220V you need to have a GFCI ($200) breaker installed outside for service. Then you typically need #8 wire at 50A. If you are looking at spending $5k on the unit you listed you might as well spend a few more k and get a bigger unit rated at 220V. It will give you better heating and jets.

          My only other recommendation is to get a bigger unit, you won't regret it, especially if you think you might have the occasional party. Buy a standard size unit as well so it is easy to find a cover replacement which you will need every so often but if it is in the garage than it should last a long time not exposed to the elements.

          The last thing is the maintenance, use Spa solution or Spa Marvel as you main cleaning agent ($50 every 3 months). You will still need Chlor but you use a lot less.

We had a bunch of people over for a backyard party and one lady who probably weighed 350 sat in the tub for hours. When she got out, she said that's the cleanest I've been in years. OK time to empty the tub!

              One came with our place inn PEC. We use it all the time. far more than I would have thought. Using it a lot in the winter. I also know people that have got a HT but sold it after a year or so because they never used it.

                I'd have broken out the sawzall and cut the tub into 4 pieces.
