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.
Pumps, Jets & Filtration
1 x Balboa Dura Jet 2-speed 10.3amp 50hz pump
All seals are carbon ceramic with Viton® elastomers for long-lasting performance, easily enduring prolonged heat and chemical exposure. A unique design impeller provides higher efficiency flow with a smaller horsepower motor than other pumps in the same class; high flow rates can exceed 210 gallons per minute. Sanitisation and heating can occur while maintaining lower running costs. Whisper quiet operation assures a peaceful spa experience.
9 x 2” jets and 13 x 3” jets
1 x 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.
Filtration: 18sq. foot twin filter system with Smartpod™
Smartpod™ bromine feeder will you save time and reduce manual handling of chemicals. The Smartpod™ feeder uses small Bromine slow dissolving tablets to make sanitising your new hot tub easy, and automatic.
Maintenance Free, composite cabinet available in graphite or Espresso brown. The rugged, attractive cabinet is designed for life with protection from the sun and temperature fluctuations. Aesthetically, the composite cabinet features wide, horizontal lines to capture the style of contemporary domestic flooring.
Internal footwell LED lighting. LED lights have fixed and mood functions with up to eight colour sequences.
Insulation & Running Costs
Thermal testing carried out Running costs £20.04 (67p daily).
The costs indicated on the Energy Calculator are calculated based on the industry’s only certified test procedure for determining energy costs. Actual owner monthly costs will vary on a wide variety of circumstances.
Values have been calculated based on standard test procedure for Portable Electric Spas as stipulated in ANSI/APSP/ICC-14 2014
- Energy Cost based on £0.12/kwh.
- Tested at 60°F ambient temperature.
- 102°F water temperature.
- Master Spas cover used and not opened during testing.
- Pumps came on during automatic cycles only for heating and filtering. They were not turned on manually.
- Test conducted in a 3rd party approved environmental chamber certified to the ANSI/APSP/ICC-14 2014 standard.
Actual Monthly Cost of Running a hot tub or swim spa in a customers’ garden will vary from these totals and is totally dependent upon:
- Local energy cost.
- Local ambient temperature.
- Set water temperature.
- Use of hot tub or swim spa.
- Type and condition of cover.
- Filter cycle settings.
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.
