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.
Many people understandably ask: how much will a Master Spa hot tub cost to run?
This question is near impossible to answer with any degree of accuracy as it depends entirely on a series of factors, not least:
- The cost of your domestic electric
- Water temperature and ambient temperature
- Wind speed and will-chill factor
- Frequency and duration of use
What we can tell you is Master Spas manufacture some of the most thermally-efficient hot tubs in the world. In addition, they are thermally tested to pass, or exceed, the standards set by the CEC – Californian Energy Commission with publicly available results.
These results give energy use, on standby, in controlled conditions, from which you can calculate anticipated costs.
Visit the CEC website to find the energy use of your Master Spas model
https://cacertappliances.energy.ca.gov/Pages/ApplianceSearch.aspx Simply select the manufacturer and then select the model you wish. Note: Currently some models are still waiting for certification – this is simply because they are newer than others – they share the same build and efficiency so if you want to get an idea, simply pick a similarly sized model with a similar water volume.
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
- 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 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.
Internal footwell LED lighting. LED lights have fixed and mood functions with up to eight colour sequences.
Pumps, Jets & Filtration
1 x 2-speed High Performance 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.
Cabinet & Cover
