About Hot Spring®

The Hot Spring® team is invested in doing more than making the best spas in the industry—we also create great experiences while providing all of the wellness benefits of hydrotherapy, including relaxation, relief, and reconnection. Soaking in a Hot Spring hot tub can help reduce stress and improve sleep.

As an innovator in hot tub manufacturing, we own a long list of patents that offer the latest technology in water care and other spa systems to our customers.

  • The No-Fault® heater with titanium housing and an element that fights corrosion to keep your heater working efficiently.
  • A patented pump shroud that captures excess heat from the pump area and transfers it to the water.
  • Tri-X® filter technology that offers twice the cleaning area of other cartridge filters to clean 100 percent of the water—even when the jets are running.
  • The FreshWater® Salt System, a unique water care system that generates chlorine from salt and takes the guesswork out of water care.

Moreover, every Hot Spring spa is subject to rigorous quality control of form, function, fit, and finish before leaving the plant. We're dedicated to manufacturing spas that provide The Absolute Best Hot Tub Ownership Experience®.


Our commitment to excellence in engineering and design can be seen in our history of industry firsts. In 1978, we introduced the first fully insulated hot tub with underwater lighting and top loading filters. Today, these features are industry standards. In 1984, we introduced Moto-Massage®, the world's first moving hydrotherapy jet that sweeps the length of your back with a powerful stream of massaging water. Our passion for creating the best hot tubs hasn't faded in 40 years and can be seen in our modern spa collections.


Hot Spring spas are distributed and supported by a network of 850 dealerships and service locations around the globe, and each employs highly experienced support representatives that go above and beyond the norm to ensure customer satisfaction.

Our dealers participate in ongoing training to ensure they remain the most knowledgeable about the latest innovations we bring to the industry. Each is prepared to not only show you the best home spas, but also to ensure that the spa options and accessories you choose are installed quickly, correctly, and safely. Many dealers even offer service and maintenance programs to help you maintain your spa for as long as you own it.

Hot Spring dealers are as passionate about making a difference in their local communities as they are about hot tubs. Our 40 Acts of Kindness campaign shows the many differences our dealers make in neighborhoods around the world. When you choose Hot Spring, you choose professional retailers and skilled service technicians who are dedicated to customer service and satisfaction.


Since Jeff and Jon Watkins built the first Hot Spring portable spa in 1977, their dedication to manufacturing the best spas has been recognized time and time again. Hot Spring has also earned Spasearch.org trade-certified recognition every year since its inception in 2008.

With more than one million Hot Spring spas sold, our passion, adherence to quality, and our dedication to customer satisfaction have made us an industry leader. We're proud that our customers turn to our spas to help them relax, connect with their loved ones, and lead healthy, happy lives.
