Design & Technology
HOW OUR HOT TUBS ARE BUILT
All of our hot tubs are crafted to the highest standards of workmanship. We use only the finest materials and brand name components available. Our hot tubs are designed to be low-maintenance as well as high-pleasure. From the versatile Control Systems that automate everything from temperature settings to filter cycles, to the ozone generator and filter system that keeps your water clean and clear. You can rest assured that when purchasing from us you are investing in one of the highest quality hot tubs on the market.
THE INGENIOUS HEAT VAULT SYSTEM
The water in your hot tub stays warmer longer with lower energy costs thanks to the ingenious Heat Vault insulation system built into the enclosure. Rather than simply filling the interior with foam as many hot tub manufacturers do, the Heat Vault insulation system uses foam insulation on the bottom of the shell, the floor of the enclosure, and all four interior walls, creating a “dead air” space completely surrounded by insulation. This is the same principle as double-glazed glass in your patio door and it works for the very same reason: dead air, surrounded by an insulator traps heat more efficiently than solid insulation itself. The hot tub pumps are housed inside this insulated dead air space which serves two purposes: it protects the pumps from freezing-up when the outside temperature falls below freezing(the pipes and plumbing are also insulated!) and incidental heat generated by the pump equipment adds to the insulating warmth of the interior air space rather than being lost to the outside. Since the layers of insulation on the interior walls and floor of the enclosure are much thicker than the insulation on the bottom of the shell the trapped heat of the interior air space rises up through the bottom of the hot tub shell and contributes to the heat of the water effectively replacing the heat rising off the surface. Even under worst-case conditions-including loss of power in sub-zero temperature-the slow-release heat trap created by the Heat Vault insulation system will keep your spas water above freezing for many days.
BENEFITS OF THE HEAT VAULT INSULATION SYSTEM:
Water stays warmer, longer, with lower energy costs
Incidental heat generated by the hot tub pumps is effectively recycled back into the hot tub
(this not only lowers your hot tub heating costs, but also protects the pumps from overheating by providing a useful method of dissipating the heat they generate)
Interior pipes and plumbing are fully insulated against freezing
HOT TUB MAINTENANCE MADE EASY (OZONE GENERATOR)
Keeping your hot tub clean and the water pure and sparkling is easy and inexpensive with the Smart Water Ultrapure Ozone that delivers the most powerful oxidizer available to hot tub water. When Ozone is introduced it automatically removes or alters bather waste as water circulates. This continuous, preventative treatment lowers Chemical demand and virtually eliminates expensive specialty chemicals. This oxidation treatment results in polished crystal-clear water.
Smartwater Ozone generation creates:
• A nature fresh bottled-water hot tub experience
• Cost savings, fewer chemicals & less maintenance
• Extended life of hot tub equipment & longer filter runs
Smart water Ozoned water offers:
• No red eyes or skin irritation
• No ‘chlorine’ allergic reaction
• No after use showers, shampoos or skin moisturisers
• No ‘chlorine’ smell
• No green hair
HOT TUB SHELLS
Lucite is a brand name of high grade quality Acrylic. The quality of the acrylic is vital to the quality of the hot tub.It is made in sheets ,the thicker the sheet, the more expensive which is why some hot tubs are made with 5mm thick acrylic which is similar to a baths acrylic. Cheap plastic will heavily scratch and yellow in the sun, but high quality cast acrylic will not. Our Lucite acylic is 12mm thick and backed up with microban protection. Microban® protection is also built into our shells during manufacturing to continuously inhibit the growth of bacteria that can cause stains, odours and product deterioration.
Why Microban Protection?
There’s no better place to seek relaxation and relief from stress than a hot tub. However high humidity levels can make an unprotected hot tub surface an environment where bacteria can quickly multiply. You can relax when you purchase a hot tub made from Lucite® cast acrylic with Microban® antimicrobial protection. Lucite cast acrylic is beautiful durable and non-porous which makes the surface easy to clean and maintain. In addition, only hot tubs manufactured with Lucite cast acrylic have the added cleanliness protection of Microban antimicrobial technology. Microban technology is not designed to replace normal water treatment chemicals but provides an added level of cleanliness. So just relax and enjoy .
In our relentless search for new ways to produce a more efficient high-powered quality hot tub we have enhanced the filtration on our hot tubs by adding a Dual filtration system which combines suction filtration with front access skim filtration, this increases the flow of water through the filter creating pristine crystal clear water. This is the reason why we don’t use circulation pumps. Circulations pumps are small, low flow pumps that circulate water through the filter and heater this causes problems due to the low flow rate through the heater and therefore results in damaging the circulation pump, heater and controls. We use the low speed from one of the pumps instead of a circulation pump. This raises the gallons per minute rate tremendously and therefore making the spa more efficient and easier to service and maintain.
SPA FROG® AUTOMATIC HOT TUB CARE SYSTEM
The built in SPA FROG® system takes the thinking out of hot tub care with easy to set, replaceable cartridges. This continually doses the hot tub water so you don’t need to worry about constant hot tub care. SPA FROG® transforms your hot tub into a perfect environment for relaxation with water that feels softer and is crystal clear every day with little effort.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The SPA FROG® system is built right into the hot tub. Each hot tub is fitted with a Secure FROG cap that twists off and houses two SPA FROG® system cartridges one minerals and one bromine. With minerals reducing bromine use, your hot tub will look crystal clear and feel silky soft and all you have to do is set the cartridges. No measuring, no mess The minerals destroy bacteria and help keep the pH in a safe range with less monitoring. A low bromine level (50% less than most hot tubs) finishes the job for a clean, clear hot tub ready to enjoy when you are. The FROG system will continually dose the water through the cartridges so you can just relax in the hot tub every day without any worry! Replace the mineral cartridge every 3 months or when draining and refilling your hot tub. Replace the bromine cartridges when empty usually every 3-4 weeks.In between is pure fun and relaxation!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING THE SPA FROG® SYSTEM?
• Uses up to 80% less chemicals compared to normal hot tubs
• Very low maintenance so you enjoy your hot tub
• Helps to prevent skin and eye irritations
• Long lasting bromine compared to traditional hot tubs
• Easy to use
• Softer water due to using minerals and low bromine
• Reduces odours and leaves water crystal clear
