Insulation: The use of premium insulation materials in our products is key to maintaining water temperature, improving energy efficiency, and reducing energy costs for our customers. This high-grade insulation effectively retains heat and keeps out the cold, ensuring optimal performance and cost savings.

Pumps and Heaters: The pumps and heaters serve as the vital organs of our hot tubs, responsible for circulating water and regulating its temperature. We select these components based on their high quality, energy efficiency, exceptional performance, and long lifespan. These elements ensure that our hot tubs function optimally, providing a consistently enjoyable and relaxing experience.

Jets: The jets in our hot tubs play a pivotal role in delivering the hydrotherapy benefits. We incorporate a diverse array of jet types in our hot tubs, each specifically designed to target distinct muscle groups. This design strategy ensures a comprehensive massage experience, enhancing relaxation and therapeutic benefits.

Installation of a hot tub

Installing a hot tub is thrilling, but carefully considering its placement is vital. Sapphire Spas are here to assist you in this process and guarantee that your hot tub is installed in the ideal location.

 

Stable base: It is essential to have a stable and level base for your hot tub. This base can be a concrete slab, a deck, or a spa pad. It must be strong enough to support the weight of the hot tub, the water, and the individuals using it.

 

Access to power: Your hot tub must be within reach of a power source. If you have purchased an add-on heat&cool pump, it will come with a data and power cable already installed. You need to connect it to the Spanet SV spa control.

 

Adequate airflow: Utilizing a heat & cool pump, ensuring adequate airflow for the fan output is crucial. This means avoiding placing the hot tub in an enclosed area where the pump cannot effectively draw in and expel air.

 

When selecting a location for your hot tub, it is recommended to consider the following factors for optimal convenience, privacy, and enjoyment:

 

Proximity to the House: While not essential, placing the hot tub close to your house offers enhanced convenience, particularly during colder weather. Additionally, it facilitates easy access to power and water connections.

 

Privacy: It is crucial to assess the level of privacy when deciding on a location. It is advisable to position the hot tub in an area that is not easily visible to neighbours or passersby, ensuring a more secluded and intimate experience.

 

View: If feasible, it is recommended to position the hot tub in a spot that offers a pleasant view. This will contribute to heightened relaxation and enjoyment while using the hot tub.

 

It is important to note that the installation process should be carried out by a professional or under professional guidance to ensure safety and efficiency. At Sapphire Spas, we are dedicated to assisting you throughout the entire process, from selecting the perfect hot tub to ensuring it is installed in the ideal location.

Hot tub massage

Achieve optimum health and wellbeing

Although you can’t claim the cost of a hot tub on your health insurance, you might save yourself a few visits to the doctor with a spa session each day? The warm water and hydro massage from a Sapphire HotTub may help with common health issues faced by many of us. You may even melt away a few kilos to help you lose any unwanted weight.

Most of us build up tension through our postural muscles and the muscles of our back, neck and shoulders. These muscles will often feel worse with rest; they actually respond much better to massage and movement to alleviate stiffness and support the healing process. Our swim spas provide a supportive environment for gentle remedial stretches and exercise, protecting muscles with the warm water of your spa.

Spa jets can also be powered up, creating resistance to target muscles and joints that need work to regain strength. The fully adjustable resistance from the bank of swim jets creates instability, to engage core muscles. Core strength will help correct your posture, realign your frame and provide a healthy body to support you throughout your daily life.

Neck and shoulder massage system

Our wrap-around jet configuration targets pressure points of the neck & shoulder areas; reaching deep into muscles where tension is often held after a long day at work. Four powerful jets, that can be individually adjusted for water volume & flow direction, provide a therapeutic massage when it’s time to relax.

 

Reflexology footcell

Based on the theory that stimulation of pressure points within the soles of your feet will benefit your entire body, we have strategically positioned jets to create the ultimate massage system. Whilst supporting your feet & lower legs, our ‘at rest’ angled foot support will treat your aching feet to a ‘foot rub’ that never has to end.

Oxygendetox ‘bed of bubbles’

Together with the powerful hydrojet massage, this air jet system relaxes, not only your muscles, but your entire body, nervous system and even your mind. It also promotes healthy circulation, stomach digestion, lung function and can help your lymphatic system get rid of toxins and waste which may reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Reduce back and neck pain

Immersion in water substantially reduces the weight-bearing effects of gravity on the lower extremities and spine. Back and neck pain can be significantly reduced by the turbulence of your spa water as your body is supported in a weightless state by the aerated jet streams.

Arthritis

The warm water of a spa pool is a safe, supportive aid to relieving the pain and stiffness of arthritis. Your body becomes almost weightless as it’s submerged in water, helping to ease discomfort caused by stiff joints, keep them moving, increase their range of motion and maintain muscle strength.

Diabetes

An increasing percentage of our population deal with the effects of diabetes on a daily basis. Studies show that physical activity can help control your blood glucose, blood pressure and blood cholesterol. If regular exercise is not always possible, a spa pool can simulate the beneficial effects of exercise.

Do you sleep well?

A good nights sleep is vital to our overall health and well-being and still, millions of people either do not get enough sleep or suffer from other sleep related problems. The warm water and relaxation effect of a spa pool may provide a natural remedy for a restful, full nights sleep.

Elderly and rehabilitation

With the assistance of our support bar, those of you requiring help with stability can still use a swim spa with confidence. Any exercise, stretch or mild cardio workout can just as effectively be performed whilst holding the bar, mounted in front of the swim jets, for support.
