    Almost everyone on this forum is in the USA or Canada. We are happy to have you here, but are not always able to accomodate. The units you show are outdoor hot tubs, as used in the USA, and I would say were a fad that is becoming less popular.

    I have spent a decent amount of time in France and other European countries, and I have not seen any hot tubs. That doesn't mean that they don't exist or not popular there, though. You do have to remember that most European cities have limited space inside and outside the buildings, so hot tubs are not practical. Houses away from the city do tend to have enough land for them, but you typically see swimming pools instead (especially southern France and other European countries that are further south).

    Well the two places you really would want to get into would be Lowes and Home Depot, and possibly also Walmart. But you have to be prepared to negotiate with a buyer who is part pit bull, part hyena, and part elephant!

    I spent most of my like in the UK. Hot tubs are not popular there. In fact, I don't know anyone who has or had one. I think it boils down to high purchase price, high energy costs and limited space making them somewhat impractical.

    Hot tub is popular in these area, but now it is in the economy crisis ,so many people doesn't intend to spend much much .

    But one kind of tub is still popular , that is walk in tub for elderly and disabled, elderly people has much money to buy their <a href="http://www.walk-in-tub.org" target="_blank">walk in tubs</a>

    My understanding is that perfume is popular in France...

    Do you really expect to sell tubs as ugly as the one you have in the picture you posted...
    Most of my customers are looking for stuff like this...
