ALL THE WAYS TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR HOT TUB
Jets, Water Care Systems, Lighting, Entertainment, and More!
Ask a dozen hot tub owners what they like most about owning a hot tub and you’re likely to get a dozen different answers. That’s because each of them has chosen their hot tub to fit their own lifestyle and needs. A quality hot tub is an investment you can expect to enjoy for years to come, so before you buy, it’s important to take the time to consider the benefits you hope to gain from your purchase.
Before you start looking at hot tub models, consider your lifestyle. Do you plan on soaking alone or with a partner, or entertaining extended family and friends? How large a space do you want to dedicate to your new backyard retreat? Are you interested in a compact spa that can fit on a deck or small patio, or do you plan on something more elaborate? Will your daily routine benefit most from having a spot to relax and unwind after a long day, relieving back pain or symptoms of arthritis, recovering and recharging after a workout, or connecting with loved ones?
Once you’ve thought about how you’ll use your new hot tub and sketched out your requirements, it’s time to begin narrowing down your options. You want to be confident in your purchase, so look for an industry leader who makes a reliable product and has a dedicated network of local dealers. With over four decades of experience, Hot Spring® Spas is dedicated to providing The Absolute Best Hot Tub Ownership Experience®. Maybe that’s why so many customers turn to us. Hear what Hot Spring spa owners have to say by reading our reviews.
Hot Spring Spas have models to fit every household and every space.
With three distinct collections and 20 models to choose from, Hot Spring Spas offers a wide variety of sizes, cabinet and shell colors, jet configurations, and other options to ensure that you get the maximum enjoyment and wellness benefits from your new hot tub.
Naturally, we want you to love every minute you spend in your Hot Spring spa. But how can you make sure yours is the perfect fit for your home and lifestyle?
Below is a checklist of items to consider when shopping for the best hot tub for you.
Choose the Right Spa Size
Do you need a two-person hot tub, a three-person hot tub, or something bigger? Large hot tubs offer plenty of space to connect with friends and family. Small hot tubs are a perfect fit for tighter spaces, such as small patios and balconies. Not sure which size spa is best for your household? We have a model for virtually every space and budget - and we’ve made it simple to visualize any of our models in your own space with the Virtual View™ AR app, which puts the power of augmented reality at your fingertips. With the Virtual View AR app, you can shop and compare models virtually, in any color combination, and narrow down your favorites. Then, visit your local dealer to check out your options in person and find the "just-right fit."
Select a Seating Style
Hot Spring Spas offers models with different seating options, such as the luxurious lounge seat found in the popular 6-person Sovereign® model from our Highlife® Collection. The 7-person Grandee® model offers seats in various depths, so everyone can soak comfortably, regardless of height.
Not sure which seating configuration is best for you? Taking a dry or wet test soak at your local dealer will allow you to make sure the seats are comfortable, shaped to fit your body, and that they help you remain in place even when powerful jets are turned on you.
Pick the Perfect Jets
Everyone’s idea of the "perfect" hydrotherapy massage is not the same. Different bodies and individual muscle groups require different amounts of pressure. Hot Spring Spas offers 20 different hot tub models with a wide variety of jets, including directional and precision jets designed to provide massage to specific body parts.
Depending on the spa model you choose, you can benefit from targeted jet massage in different seating areas. For example, one seating area might focus on shoulders, wrists, and lower back; another area might focus on feet, calves, thighs, and the lower back. With select Hot Spring models, you can experience the ultimate back massage with our unique MotoMassage® jet configuration that has two adjustable streams of water that sweep up and down your entire back—similar to a skilled masseuse. Imagine how good that will feel after a strenuous workout or a long day sitting at your desk!
Your Hot Spring Spas dealer can help you find a model with the seating and jet configuration that provides the best massage for your specific needs. Then, to truly personalize your spa experience, jets can be adjusted to provide the right amount of pressure with our Comfort Control® system, which lets you control the strength of your massage. Plus, our SmartJet® system reduces energy costs by directing power to the jets you are using, instead of powering all the jets at once.
Decide on Your Water Care System
One of the most important aspects of hot tub ownership is keeping spa water clean and sanitary. Hot Spring Spas offers:
The FreshWater® Salt System
The innovative FreshWater Salt System, available on Highlife Collection and Limelight® Collection spas is the simple way to keep spa water clean, clear and sanitized for up to a full year.* With just a little salt in your spa water, the system generates chlorine automatically so you’ll spend less time maintaining your spa and more time enjoying it. And with less chemicals required, you can look forward to your daily soak in soft, more natural-feeling water with no itchy, dry skin or eyes.
FROG® @ease® In-Line Sanitizing System
All Hot Spot® Collection spas come ready to use the FROG® @ease® in-line sanitizing system** that automatically dispenses SmartChlor® chlorine and minerals for simplified water care. @ease creates softer-feeling water that’s virtually free of chemical odors since the system works with up to 75% less chlorine.
Traditional Chlorine Water Care Systems
Traditional water care systems rely on a regimen of chlorine sanitizers, pH balancers, water clarifiers and conditioners, and calcium removers. The amount of each chemical you’ll need to add depends on the spa water conditions, so you’ll have to test your water regularly. When using a traditional water care system, it’s a good idea to change the spa water every three or four months to prevent chloramine buildup.
Check out Colorful LED Lighting Options
Dramatic interior and exterior lighting is an appealing feature that adds ambiance to your evening soak, and beautifully accents your outdoor space. You’ll find energy-efficient LED lights on Highlife, Limelight, and Hot Spot Collection spas. Each model comes with a specific, factory-installed lighting system, with colors that can be adjusted for a personalized experience. Browse models online or in the dealer showroom to find the lighting configuration that speaks to you.
Get the Right Accessories
There is still a lot more to customize on your hot tub: handrails, umbrellas and even entertainment systems. Hot Spring Spas’ custom fitted covers can be easily and safely removed with our selection of cover lifters. Sturdy, color coordinated steps and handrails make it easy to get in and out of your spa, and our spa umbrella provides shade and protection.
Whether you plan to soak alone or with friends and family, our entertainment options are sure to enhance your experience. You can watch live TV, stream video, enjoy your favorite music, and more as you relax in your hot tub.
Your dealer will help you choose the extra touches that allow you to make a spa your own and enhance the value you get from it every day.
