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
- 2 x Balboa Dura Jet 2-speed 10.3amp 50hz pumps
- 1 x Balboa 1 speed pump
All seals are carbon ceramic with VitonÂ® 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. 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 maximise efficiency in spa heating and filtration. The circulation pump moves water at 30 gallons per minute through the Smartpodâ„˘ 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.

Twin filter system with Mast3rPur and EcoPur Charge water purification.
The cutting-edge Mast3rPur Water Management System utilises three hot tub sanitisation methodsâ€”Ozone, UV-C light and a combination of copper and zinc produced byÂ EcoPurÂ® ChargeÂ filtrationâ€”to create a more effective hot tub sanitation solution than any other system on the market. The combination of these three natural sanitisers supports overall water quality and reduces the amount of harsh chemicals needed to maintain optimal water balance.
Through the Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP), Mast3Pur quickly rids water of contaminants, chloramines and microorganisms with help from each of the three natural sanitation methods. AOP produces powerful hydroxyl radicals that maximise disinfection and reduce chloramines; producing clean, clear, sanitised hot tub water.
The EcoPur Charge hot tub water purification and filtration system is Master Spasâ€™ newest advancement in clean water technology. This revolutionary hot tub filter is engineered to work alone, or in concert, with both the Mast3rPurâ„˘ and Quietflowâ„˘systems. The EcoPur Charge hot tub filter replicates the way nature uses copper and zinc to purify water and remove dirt, bacteria and algae. Its innovative filter design builds upon previous Master Spas hot tub filters, and utilizes Master Spasâ€™ patented filtration fabric.
The hot tub filter fabric is wound tightly into a nautilus cell and is encased by a spring core that allows for maximum water flow. As the water flows through this master core, it is charged by low levels of copper and zinc oxides; these natural elements are safe for your hot tub and create a more efficient way to maintain clear, clean water. By filtering water the same way Mother Nature does, this technology reduces water-soluble heavy metals and, in the process, decreases the amount of harsh chemicals needed to purify the spa water. EcoPurÂ® Charge also controls scale, bacteria and algae, safeguards the hot tubâ€™s plumbing and helps prevent damage to swimwear.

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.
