Why a HotSpring Spa is worth the wait

With wait times for premium brand spas increasing, people are frequently looking towards cheap and faster alternatives when finding a spa. This can result in horror stories further down the line and you. 

Find out below, why a Premium HotSpring Spa, is worth the wait.

Freshwater Salt System 
Available on all Highlife Collection and Limelight Collection spas, this easy-to-use salt water system eliminates the worry of keeping spa water clean, clear and sanitised 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 measuring and adding chemicals. This unique system makes spa ownership easier than ever by removing the guesswork and hassle of water care maintenance.

Jet Systems 
Our innovative, patented jets are designed to target specific muscle groups, giving you the very best massage experience every time you use your spa. Each jet delivers powerful, soothing streams of water with pressure that you can customise to your preference. Find more about our jets here

Early full-foam hot tubs were filled with a single density of foam. Some are still manufactured this way because spraying a single density of foam in the cabinet is a less expensive and less labor intensive manufacturing process than adding multiple layers of different kinds of foam. Foam density varies, and the higher the density, the better the insulating value. Single density foam spas cannot be filled with the highest density of foam because later on, foam expansion would cause damage to the cabinet.

In a multi-density full-foam hot tub, foams of various densities are sprayed in layers, filling the cabinet and surrounding the plumbing.

Hot Spring multi-density foam models are sprayed with two different densities of foams on the shell, four different densities in the cabinet, and sealed with extremely dense foam on the bottom. Each layer is specifically engineered to provide structural support in addition to insulation. The combination also minimizes expansion and contraction. The end result is the best possible insulation, leading to the lowest possible operating costs.


Type of hot tub insulation Example Pros Cons
No insulation Inflatable hot tub Cheap Vulnerable to freezing, expensive to run
Partial foam Rotationally molded spa Purchase price on the low end; may be acceptable in warmer climates Vulnerable to freezing, more expensive to run than full foam
Thermal wrap Swim spa Provides basic insulation for a lower temp heated pool Cannot meet the demands of a hot tub
Full Foam Modern mid quality spa brands Insulation fills the cabinet and eliminates air flow that allows heat to escape Single density full foam does not provide greatest energy efficiency. Higher density can’t be used because of expansion.
FiberCor® Modern top quality spas, including HotSpring Spas Loose, wool-like fibers provide the same insulation value as high density polyurethane foam, but are easy to remove when repair is needed Less insulation value than multi-density full foam
