In 1986, Don Hoolihan purchased a Westchester spa from Bradford Products. The Westchester is an octagonal spa with stainless steel walls and teakwood planking on the bench, floor and top lip. Mr. Hoolihan installed it at his home in Colorado and used it for the next 31 years.

This February, Mr. Hoolihan came back to Bradford with a particular request. He wanted to purchase the exact spa he bought 31 years ago, again. He requested that the new spa be as close to identical as his old spa as possible.

Mr. Hoolihan’s new spa shipped this week, and after receiving photos of it in the shop, he sent us this response:

“Thanks to everyone for exceptional work you’ve done to create a near duplicate spa for us.  The photos we have seen look beautiful, and we anxiously await taking delivery of our new spa.  I thought you might all be interested to see some pics of my original spa purchased in 1986. I also am sending you the brochures that came with the spa 31 years ago.  The spa you see installed at our house, now under contract for sale is as it looks today. 

Thanks again for everything.
Don Hoolihan”


Mr. Hoolihan’s purchase of a second Bradford Spa, 31 years later, speaks to who we are and what we build. Mr. Hoolihan’s ability to keep up with a manual for 31 years speaks volumes about his organizational skills, (we are really impressed).

We take great care in what we build so our customers can be proud of what they purchase. Thanks for having us in your home for the last 30 years, Mr. Hoolihan, we’re looking forward to thirty more!
