Lifelong Hot Spring Hot Tubber and 9,000 Facebook Fans Know Why Diamonds Are a Hot Tub’s Best Friend!

Vista, California, July 31, 2012 —Hot Spring® Spas, the world’s leading spa brand, congratulated Don Benecke, of Osage Beach, Missouri, as the winner in the June Hot Spring Salt Water Hot Tub Giveway.  Benecke won the Hot Spring spa model of his choice – complete with the revolutionary ACE® Salt Water Sanitizing System, the proprietary CoverCradle® cover lifter, and a matching Everwood® step. To enter the Giveaway, contestants were encouraged to “Like” the Hot Spring Spas Facebook page and then watch a fun, animated video to find out why ‘diamonds are a hot tub’s best friend’. To increase their chances of winning, contestants were encouraged to share the video with friends.

Benecke, a long time hot tubber and owner of a 22 year old Highlife™ Hot Spring spa, was contacted by the company’s corporate office. “I am thrilled to be selected as the winner of a brand new Hot Spring spa,” said Benecke. “I am one of Hot Spring’s biggest fans! I’ve loved my hot tub for so many years. It’s still working well, so I haven’t upgraded. It’s so exciting to win a brand new one with the salt system!”

Spreading the word about the ACE salt water sanitizing system was one of the main objectives of the sweepstakes. “This breakthrough innovation has simplified hot tub water care, making it incredibly easy to enjoy a Hot Spring spa.” explains Kacy Rivers, Hot Spring Brand Manager. The video describes how the ACE system works:  Using exclusive diamond technology, the proprietary ACE salt water sanitizing system automatically creates the cleaners needed to keep spa water sparkling and silky soft, while the hot tub owner relaxes.   

“We wish everyone could be a winner,” says Rivers. “It’s wonderful to see our community of Hot Spring hot tubbers sharing their love for Hot Spring Spas and inviting so many friends to participate in the Salt Water Hot Tub Giveaway. Our Hot Spring Facebook Page Likes grew tremendously in just one month, with lots of excited postings.”
