Full Foam Insulation
Better insulation means low energy costs. We use Icynene foam technology that has dramatically raised the standard over urethane foam insulation systems used by almost all U.S. spa manufacturers. Icynene is polyicynene expanding foam insulation that is environmentally safe. It allows foam to be sprayed without ozone-destroying gases and without gas emission hazards.
High Quality Insulation
The Icynene Insulation System expands to 100 times its initial volume in seconds to insulate and air-seal the spa. The resulting blanket of soft foam insulation forms a continuous thermal barrier that eliminates cold spots and significantly reduces energy costs.
A consistent, comfortable temperature is maintained inside the spa, while cold air is kept outside, and condensation, mould and mildew prevented. Unlike urethane foam-based systems, which lose half their value in as little as two years, Icynene maintains its insulation value for the life of your Master Spa.

Pumps, Jets & Filtration
- 1 x Balboa Dura Jet 2-speed 10.3amp 50hz pump
- 1 x Balboa 1 speed pump
Features – All seals are carbon ceramic with VitonÂ® elastomers for long-lasting performance, easily enduring prolonged heat and chemical exposure.Â A unique design impeller provides higher efficiency flow with a smaller horsepowerÂ motor than other pumps in the same class; high flow rates can exceed 210 gallonsÂ per minute. Sanitization and heating can occur while maintaining lower running costs. Whisper quiet operation assures a peaceful spa experience.
- 1 x QuietFlowâ„˘ 24-hour circulation pump
The QuietFlowâ„˘ Water Care System utilises a hot tub circulation pump to maximize efficiency in spa heating and filtration. The circulation pump moves water at 30 gallons per minute through the Smartpod, filtering the water when the spa is not in use. By keeping the water moving at present intervals, the circulation pump ensures hot tub water remains filtered and heated evenly.
In addition to improving water filtration, maintaining a slightly elevated water temperature allows the spa to heat up more quickly, ensuring itâ€™s ready when you are. Without the circulation pump, the water would be still, which results in increased demands for spa chemicals and additional time to heat the water to the desired temperature prior to use.
- Jets Specification
20 x Halo 2â€ť , 18 x Halo 3â€ť , 5 x Halo 5â€ť and 2 x Halo VTX 5â€ť
- 2 x Halo air control
Air controls are located on the top edge of the hot tub shell. Once rotated and turned on they allow water flowing through the jets to suck air, adding extra fizz and bubbles.

Poor water chemistry is damaging to heater elements, additionally tap water can have high salt, lime and calcium which can cause steel heater elements to fail. A titanium heater provides a superior defence against poor water conditions.Â
