Our Story

The Showroom
Our business had humble beginnings.  R & D Hot Tubs commenced operation as a small, simple business that rented out a single hot tub and retailed a small number of tubs and related supplies, annually. In 2000, with a growing reputation for ultra-reliable service and terrific product,  R & D Hot Tubs began retailing increasing quantities of tubs each year out of a confined and shared retail location in the industrial end of Camrose.

In 2008, as a husband-and-wife team, Russ and Doneal Greipl took the plunge (no pun intended) and moved to a location in east-end Camrose to focus specifically on hot tub sales and service. They discontinued the tub rental business and focused their energies on sourcing and selling Canada's best-built and most energy-efficient spas and hot tubs. Russ and Doneal become widely know for providing outstanding customer service. Over the years they won numerous high-profile sales and service awards from Hydropool. The Hyrdropool line is widely regarded as the leading source for hot tubs, swim spas, and water treatment products in east central Alberta.

Due to demand, and expanding into grill and related product sales, plus a fine selection of billiard supplies,  the couple expanded their store and service centre on two separate occasions since 2008!

In 2021, the Greipls, after many years of long hours and dedicated service to an impressive-sized client base began searching for the right individuals to carry on their legacy and reputation in the business. They found the perfect fit – another husband-and-wife team who shared their values, rural style of work ethic, are family-focused and love the product line.

In November 2021, Rupert and Celine Amyotte began working alongside Russ and Doneal to better understand the business they had purchased and as an opportunity to get to know each and every client on a first-name basis.

For clients in a widespread area of our province R & D Hot Tubs is regarded as the go-to source for water treatment solutions and hot tub servicing; and for the very best in rubs, sauces, pellets; and of course, Green Mountain grills and Everdure grills.
