Spencer Claypool

Marketing and Sales Manager
Spencer grew up around Lifestyle Outdoor his entire life and used to think everyone had a hot tub in their backyard. He was brought on to help with digital marketing, but soon found himself helping customers in the showroom. He now splits his time between the two roles. Spencer has a natural ability to find the hot tub that best fits a customer’s needs, all the way from the size of the spa down to each and every jet. He enjoys the excitement and happiness a hot tub brings to the customer.

Jeff Claypool

Founder, Owner, President
Jeff was a teenager when he started maintaining, repairing and remodeling swimming pools in the mid 1970s. The hot tub industry was in its infancy back then, but he hopped on board at the very beginning, knowing it would quickly become a household essential. He began assembling and installing Redwood Hot Tubs for customers. By 1981, he opened his first retail store with his dad, selling and delivering self-contained portable spas. In 1984, he signed dealer agreements with both Hot Spring and Jacuzzi brand spas. As they say—the rest was history. Eventually, both his sons, Garett and Spencer, joined the business after they graduated college. He’s excited to be able to see his boys bring a fresh and inspired outlook to this growing diversified industry. They all feel the potential for growth in Los Angeles is unlimited, and he’s proud to share this exciting opportunity with both his boys.

Garett Claypool

Regional Manager
Garett joined the family business along his dad and brother in 2013. He was excited by the potential to improve an already successful business. His favorite part about the business is working with his family and the members of the staff who he considers family as well. He manages the behind the scenes projects tasks that allow the associates to deliver the best customer service and sales experience to Lifestyle Outdoor clients.

“Greg at Lifestyle Spa is a really great guy to work with. He took the time to explain every detail about the spa, and even stayed after hours to answer any and all questions I had… Greg, was patient with all of my questions and concerns… He is a straight shooter and I cannot emphasize enough – honest. I never felt pressure from Greg.” ‐ Tim K.

“Spencer Claypool and co. were great. Very knowledgeable and communicative. Delivery was easy. When I had questions about the chemicals, Spencer was very patient with me, providing me with thorough explanations over the phone.” ‐ Sam R.

“We came in to meet Jim and to test the spa and found a great salesperson who was willing to take the time to not only answer all our questions but to get to know us and what we wanted. We cannot say enough about Jim Bogart and his knowledge of the product he sells, his low key method of sales and his very helpful attitude.” ‐ Marc S.
