** Special Message for Nature's Choice Customers **

Hello.  My name is Eric Pedersen, owner and founder of Wayzata Bay Hot Tub Company.  As a former manager of a Cal Spa dealership, I have a deep understanding of the Nature's Choice chemical line and its pros & cons.  I spent a lot of time over the years studying the science of hot tub water balance and sanitation.  What I found from my research were simpiler and less expensive ways to maintain hot tub water that would produce the same or better results.

One of the reasons I left Cal Spas in 2007 was to create a company with a primary focus on simplifying water maintenance for hot tub owners.  In fact, the original name of my company was Custom Water Management.  I started small and built my business through happy customers and referals.  When the original Cal Spa dealer shut their doors in early 2010, the influx of new customers to my business was staggering.  At that time, I added the Nature's Choice chemical line because that is what most of my customers were asking for.  It was much easier to fulfill the mass amount of Nature's Choice orders than it was to try and convert every customer to a better solution.  This was a decision I would eventually regret.  My company had become a reality that was unsatisfyingly different from my original vision.

As a result, I have decided to discontinue offering the Nature's Choice chemical line.  For diehard Nature's Choice users that don't want to switch, that means discounted pricing on remaining Nature's Choice chemicals while supplies last.  For anyone interested in saving time & money (and believe me, you will save both), you have the following benefits to look forward to:

  • One trip to your spa per week versus two
  • A single chemical that will replace Metal Gone, Spa Brite, Oil Gone and Scale Defense
  • Less chemical used which will extend the life of your water between drain and refills
  • Less money spent because you will be buying less product and spending less on the bottles that you do buy (lower overhead with an online store = lower prices)

If you are interested in switching, please let me know.  I will do everything I can to make sure you understand and are happy with the new program.  Oh one other thing... the new maintenance plan WILL NOT void your spas warranty.  If you want a second opinion, I suggest calling your hot tub manufacturer directly.  For Cal Spas, that number is (1-800-CAL-SPAS).
