To say The Waterworks sells and services the highest-quality spas and saunas is very true. That’s the essence of what we do – but it hardly tells the whole story…
Our multiple Waterworks locations have become a beacon for spa and sauna lovers throughout Alaska. Why do they insist on The Waterworks? Because they know they can count on genuine service, an inviting atmosphere and a superb array of products tested specifically for the harsh Alaskan climate.timdiver
When The Waterworks began, Jimmy Carter was president, ABBA was still rocking the radio waves and bell- bottoms in polyester were popular, however the 1970’s in Alaska were a different story. The beginnings of the Alyeska Pipeline and oil production in the Cook Inlet prompted many to come north for work. Tim Bennett was one of those. Having a photography degree and trained as a hard-hat diver, Tim was a shoe-in for the work force needed to get the Cook Inlet oil platforms operational.
Tim and his wife Linda made Girdwood home, and soon Tim was developing underwater camera systems that could take photos in the zero visibility Cook Inlet waters. He tested his equipment in the first Redwood Hot Tub in Girdwood. Once fellow Girdwoodians found out that the Bennett’s had a hot tub, they wanted their own. Tim and The Waterworks crew built Redwood Hot Tubs well into the mid 1980’s until “portable” hot tubs became the new norm. Tim and Linda wanted to keep their clients happy and after much research they found a company that had created a portable hot tub worthy of Alaskan’s, a Hot Spring Spa.
These initial clients helped create the buzz that built the business. Many of them have purchased their second and third hot tubs from the Waterworks because of the service they have come to expect and have received. As the Waterworks family of happy clients has continued to grow, it has stayed true to its roots believing that every Waterworks spa and sauna owner becomes a part of the family. Today, the tradition is carried on, as the Waterworks is operated by second generation owner, daughter Kali Tucker. The Waterworks continues to offer the highest-quality spas and saunas from Finnleo Saunas, Hot Spring Spas, Hot Spot Spas, Caldera Spas, Freeflow spas and still the occasional Redwood Hot Tub.
Now that you know the whole story…welcome to the Family!
We look forward to hearing from you.
