Spa controls

Your hot tub will include a panel or remote so that you can easily control aspects of your hot tub. This can include temperature, jets and more. All hot tub control panels are waterproof, so you don’t need to worry about altering your settings from inside your tub.

Hydrotherapy jets and pumps

Hot tub jets work by drawing air in with a suction motion, leading to bubbles, which are used to provide relaxation and can alleviate aches and pains. Hot tub pumps help to keep your water clean. Quiet Flow™ technology means that you don’t need to worry about being able to hear the pumps when you’re trying to relax, you won’t even notice they are there.


Insulation is a very important part of a hot tub and it also helps to keep your energy costs down. The insulation forms a barrier to protect against any cold spots inside of a hot tub. Icynene insulation is ideal due to its consistency and long lasting nature.


Each hot tub has a cabinet. The cabinet protects your hot tub from different weather conditions and sunlight. A high quality cover can be used to protect the interior of your hot tub. You should frequently check the cover for cuts and rips to ensure that your hot tub has maximum protection.


Good quality hot tub filters are what keeps your hot tub water clean and free from debris. In addition to this, filters help to improve water circulation which means that you can have a consistent water temperature throughout your hot tub. Filters should be cleaned every 2 weeks if you are using your hot tub regularly and changed at least once a year.

Energy efficiency

Hot tubs use less energy when they are left turned on, rather than frequently being turned on and off. Leaving your hot tub turned on means that less energy is required to heat the water up as it remains heated even when you’re not using it.
