I'm trying to see what the solana by hot springs is worth it's not the tx I guess they don't make them anymore they stopped like 10 years ago
Expert:  Cole replied 2 months ago.

pretty much when we run across used tubs the value is typically between 500.00 and 1000.00 sometimes up to 1500.00 if a large expensive tub to start with. now hot springs is what i consider upper end on tubs so may be some more value there. is there any chance this was exposed to freezing temps at all when not running?

It was inside but the room was shut off not heated it looks to be in fair condition some mildew on the cover but nothing major by the looks
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I was told it was 4 years old but upon checking apparently they stopped making that one 10 years ago

so usually my main concern would be if it got left empty in freezing condition. even if they said they emptied it they can hold water in the under piping and freeze. if you are able to fill it and see if it leaks anywhere that would be a little bit of insurance for you. if it is 10 years old i would say more down in the 500.00 to 1000.00 range if working condition. it is a good brand.
