Why choose Sapphire?

Building a high quality product whilst keeping the production right here in Australia

Sapphire Spas was established with the goal to create a point of difference in manufacturing a premium quality spa pool; competitive in price and built tough in Australia, to handle unique environmental conditions throughout the World. Our name has been synonymous with design, quality, innovation and service for almost 20 years.

First & foremost we try to provide value for our customers and the best quality, long lasting product that we can manufacture. With every spa built entirely by us, to the highest Australian Standards, we guarantee that your new spa will be protected by our ‘lifecare commitment’. As an all Australian, locally designed & manufactured spa brand, we offer you a trusted warranty backed by quality controlled manufacturing

Our production team are going to take you on a tour of our factory, so you can see for yourself the people & processes that go into making our prestige product & what makes us a truly born & breed Australian maufacturer.

We’ve been building spas here in Pakenham Victoria for almost 20 years now and our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant and also our product just keeps going from strength to strength. We are constantly looking to improve our product. We look for improvements that we can make, whether it’s in pump performance, seat configuration, jet massage, longevity; it’s all about providing our customers with the best long term value.

It’s very important to Sapphire Spas to work with our local supply chain. We like to know that, wherever possible, we’re spending our money in Australia. Beyond that, we also like to know that everything that comes into our factory has been quality controlled by either our own staff or staff members that we know really well from our supply chain. A Sapphire Spa is not the cheapest spa you can buy, but I truly believe they are the best.

Thank you from the team here at Sapphire Spas

HOW WE ACHIEVE AUSTRALIAN MADE ACCREDITATION

In our State-of-the-Art manufacturing plant we have established trusted processes to ensure quality control from shell to completion. As Australia’s only certified spa construction company, we are not just an ‘assembly plant’; we have full control of every component of each spa build

A strong foundation

All the moulds are made out of form ply, MDF, body filler and a bit of fiberglass here and there, whichever way is the best at the time. We make the mold off the plug. All the inserts and seams are made after the mould has been made so everything fits and conforms to the shape and inside of the spa. The moulds brace with steel and the inside of the inserts are made with form ply so nothing will or can move inside. The M5 was a three month project and that was just the pattern and the plot. The mould was made after which was a much quicker process. Its all made out of vinyl ester resin so it can take the heat of the vacuum forming oven. The M5 is a special design because theres no other model that has inserts that can be lifted in and out to make the inside of the pool three or four different types of pool. Not one like our anyway.

Vacuum Forming

Here at Sapphire Spas, all of our vacuum forming is done onsite at our Victorian plant. We begin with our acrylic sheet, which has been brought in from America, then we put it in our vacuum forming machine. After lifting the sheet up onto our spa mould, we secure it with clamps around the perimeter of the sheet to allow us to evenly support across the expanse of the acrylic and form the spa with a consistent thickness and colour cast on the interior coating. The acrylic sheet is then smoothly rolled in to sit under the heater elements which we custom made to suit the size of our larger pools. After an initial heat up period, we raise the temperature of the sheet to around 200 degrees celcius, supported by a gas torch to reach the final temperature evenly across the expanse of the acrylic. Once the sheet reaches top temperature, it’s very pliable so it’s ready top be lifted over the top of the vacuum forming mould, where we engage the air suction of the forming equipment to shape the sheet into the seating arrangement of the mould that we’re forming on that day. The reverse moulding is unique to Sapphire Spas; we use a specifically made ram to help press the sheet evenly into the footwell.

Let it sit under suction and allow the sheet to cool down to about 80 degrees, release the suction then let it cool to about 60-65 degrees. So the sheet is warm enough to pull out of the mould without cracking but cool enough so that it shouldn’t bend to much.

From strength to strength

At Sapphire Spas we only use the best available materials. A great example is our fiberglass resins, supplied to us by Scott Bader, one of the worlds largest resin manufacturers. We use a vinyl-ester base coat to ensure unbeatable bond strength with the vacuum formed acrylic sheet.  This is then reinforced with a high-strength general purpose fibreglass to provide the structural integrity that is required to give a lifetime of support to the spa shell.

In the manufacturing process we do not cut any corners or use any additives that not only cut cost but reduce the quality of the overall product.  Many spa & pool manufacturers use filling or bulking compounds mixed into their resins to reduce the cost and make the expensive resins go further.  This exercise is detrimental to product quality as the powders used hide air bubbles and errors in the fiberglassing process, leading to long term issues such as bubbling or delamination between the acrylic sheet and the fiberglass structure.

It is our ‘no compromise’ approach across all facets of our manufacturing that allows us to confidently stand behind our industry leading warranty.

We use only superior quality resin

Strengthening with the highest quality fiberglass strands

Added strength is achieved through the mix of premium quality fiberglass roving thread with resin during application.

Spraying of the initial skin coat

We use a vinyl-ester base coat to ensure unbeatable bond strength with the vacuum formed acrylic sheet. Care is taken to begin with a clean surface to ensure the best adhesion and protection against delamination.

Additional layers are applied to strengthen the footwell

Our fiberglass application team apply multiple coats to the footwell and base of the seats to ensure structural integrity.

Overlap on each pass by half the width of the spray pattern

We overlap each pass of fiberglass by at least half the width of the last spray pass to ensure all areas of the acrylic shell are fully coated and protected.

Extra attention is given to intricate areas

Where the spa shell moulds around neck jets, head rests and into the lip of the spa, we pay extra attention and even roll to press in for added adherance. 

Extra resin is added to intricate sections

Detailed sections are 'wet down' with an additional spray of resin only to force the fiberglass deeper into these areas for added protection.

Fiberglass reinforcement protects our 10 year structural warranty

An even coating of fiberglass is sprayed onto the acrylic shell

Purpose built chopper gun equipment

With purpose designed tools, materials and equipment, we keep pace with industry manufacturing processes

Many people are caring for each spa as it moves through the factory

Hand rolled fiberglass resin ensures no air pockets for structural stability. With this many people on the team, we won't miss any imperfections.

Our heatlock+ system is the best way to reduce heat loss and keep running costs to a minimum. This system allows Sapphire to create the most energy efficient spa in the World today. Our heatlock+ layered insulation comprises of an insulated custom made cabinet, 2 layers of insulation on interior of cabinet walls and base, high density insulation on shell and a premium Australian made cover.

Sapphire Spas, across all price points, are manufactured with the same level of quality. We do not compromise on the areas that make a difference to you. Every spa in our range is built to the same standard of heatlock+ insulation system.

High density foam insulation
Aerofoil insulation
Cabinet insulation

Sapphire spas cabinets are custom made to each spa so there are no gaps for warm air to escape and no unsightly strip covers. Our cabinets are made extra long so they sit right up high under acrylic shell so there is no heat loss from inside cabinet.

Even the best pump can only perform at its optimum when coupled with precision plumbing. There’s no point finishing off a spa with ‘fancy’ jets and high performance pumps if the artform of free-flowing water has not been honoured. Pipework configuration needs to be precision engineered to allow free-flow water circulation.

Exclusive to Sapphire Spas is our patented SQR jet system which delivers greater jet pressure. The pride our team take in plumbing your spa, ensure better seals and significantly reduced potential for leaks. These free flowing jets, with the seal locking mechanism, provide a 20% increase in water flow pressure at the jet face. 

Once all the jets have been installed, the pumps are positioned within the cabinet and securely connected to the plumbing flow. The spa is then moved on to our water testing station where it is checked thoroughly so there's no leaks or problems.

First they get all the raw materials and cut them to length. Then lay them down until they make the sides of the cabinets. The corners are made using a corner jig. Once finished they use a boomerang, glue it on then nail it all together. They then stain the cabinets using a water based stain and hang them up to dry for an hour to hour and a half. We then glue and screw them to together in the basing area. After that we grab the sides and corner panels, lock them all in and then screw them. Add the base for extra structure support and then add insulation. The cabinets are then fitted onto the shells.

Steel frames are used to support swim spas
Timber frames are built around spa shells for support
Modular plastic frames may compromise strength

We believe our tried & tested steel & timber framing structure provides a more stable & strong foundation for our spas

Steel frame on our myHotTub model spa

In the water test department we fill the spas up with recycled water and check every part to make sure theres no leaks underneath, the jets are airating, touch pads and lights are all working. If its all good then it gets based and pushed through to where it gets detailed.



We clean them, give them a detail and make sure they look really good. We then wrap them and send them to the customer to enjoy.

Smart Variable Heater

Utilising the latest in smart technology every SV Series spa control features a true variable heater which automatically adjusts it output power level (kW) to utilise any residual power when accessory jet pumps are running. This eliminates the traditional need to loadshed and turn heater off when pumps engage, ensuring maximum heat input whilst spa is in use.

What is the Smart Variable Heater?

Heat Pump Interface

SpaNET is the first spa control manufacturer to offer a dedicated interface for seamless integration of a heat pump to a spa pool.  The SV Series interface provides automatic heat pump detection and disabling of electric element and offers plug-n-play direct cable connection with no need for additional power circuits.

Dynamic Thermal Tuning

SV Series spa controls feature a dynamic thermostat point which adapts and tunes heat cycles to match the thermal properties of your spa.  This eliminates unnecessary on/off cycling of the filtration pump and heater which results in significant power savings whilst still maintaining your desired water temperature

Current Limit & Load Limit

Current Limit and Load Limit functions will govern the power the spa consumes to keep within certain limits if the available power at the property the spa is being installed is restricted. The current limit setting governs the capacity of the variable heater, whilst the load limit setting limits the number of loads (jet pumps and blower) that can run at the one time.

Slash heating costs with our heat&cool pump

When compared to gas or electric heaters a heat pump uses a tiny portion of energy to generate the same amount of heat output. This means a SV Series heat pump will use up to 75% less energy than a standard electric spa heater and 55% less energy than natural gas.

A Sapphire Spas heat&cool pump very efficiently converts every 1.1kw of power into 5.5kw of heating energy, to lower your spa heating costs, using up to 75% less energy than a conventional electric heater and 50% less energy than natural gas. The spas that will benefit from this upgrade, have been manufactured ‘heat&cool pump ready’ to allow you to add-on this energy saving component in the future.

Ready to jump in 24/7 using up to 75% less energy than electric element.

For every 1 kilowatt of electricity a conventional electric heater consumes it only outputs 1 kilowatt of heat (Heating ratio = 1 : 1). In comparison for every 1 kilowatt of electricity our SV Series integrated heat pumps consume they can output up to 5.5 kilowatts of heat (Heating ratio = 1 : 5.5), thereby generating up to 4.5 kilowatts of heat for FREE!
This free energy is why a heat pump costs so little to run and makes them the most energy efficient, lowest cost form of heating available today.
The savings generated from the massive reduction in electricity to heat your spa will pay for your investment cost over a short period of time. If you don’t have a heat pump fitted to your spa you are paying your energy provider for the cost of a heat pump you’ll never get.

'How hard is spa water to keep clean?' is one of the most common questions asked by our customers when they're considering purchasing a spa. For this reason, Sapphire Spas place high importance on providing spas with an easy water maintenance regime. Let us suggest a couple of the best methods for you to maintain crystal clear spa water.

Spa pools, due to their small body of water and hard cover, are much easier to maintain than a swimming pool. They don’t require much chemical and no need to spend hours brushing and vacuuming. Nevertheless, the small body of water, combined with the fact it is kept warm, means making sure the water is adequately treated is very critical. The small volume of water means the contaminates an average person brings into the spa is concentrated. It is therefore essential that every spa be fitted with an effective sanitising system to help ensure any bugs that enter the water are quickly neutralised.

What is ozone in a spa pool?

If you have been researching spas, you will probably have come across the term Ozone. Ozone automatic sanitiser systems have been around in spas for almost as long as spas have been around.

Ozone is an oxidiser; it makes various contaminants in your spa’s water ‘inert’ so that they can be removed by the filter system. In doing so, they make the water not only cleaner, but also safer as they kill nasty bugs.

There are two technologies that are used to generate (O3). UV (not to be confused with UV sterilizers, which simulates the effects of sunshine), and Corona Discharge, which simulates the effects of lightning!

The Corona Discharge system is thought to be the best and most spa manufacturers now use this technology.

An ozone system helps to keep your water clean and clear without the need for so many chemicals.

How does ozone work?

An ozone generator converts Oxygen (O2) from the atmosphere, into Ozone (O3) in your spa. (O3) means that there are now 3 Oxygen molecules. Oxygen is an Oxidiser and when (O3) comes into contact with microscopic particles in the spa water, it dissolves those particles

Not all ozone systems are created equal

It is essential that the ozone system has adequate output and is set up to thoroughly mix and dissolve the ozone into the water. The secret is to ensure there is enough ozone being produced, and then maximise its contact time with the water as much as possible before it reverts to plain old oxygen

It is also equally important to ensure the ozone has predominantly reverted to oxygen by the time it escapes to the surface of the spa water. A high-performance Corona Discharge Ozone Unit, combined with an efficient Venturi Injector, are keys to this process

Beware of cheap imitations

Beware of cheap, low grade ozone generators with poor injection systems. They may cost less but may have little impact on helping keep the spa water fresh, clean and healthy.

Difference between Ozone & Clearzone

Clearzone uses ozone in combination with germicidal UV-C light. The combination of these two technologies creates an oxidising agent many, many times more powerful than ozone on its own. This results in much more effective destruction of nasties in the water. It also greatly reduces the chlorine by-products that cause skin, eye and respiratory irritation.

Clearzone is the ultimate in sanitisation; it is the best way to keep your spa water clean

Clearzone uses ozone in combination with germicidal UV-C light. The combination of these two technologies creates an oxidising agent many, many times more powerful than ozone on its own. This results in much more effective destruction of nasties in the water. It also greatly reduces the chlorine by-products that cause skin, eye and respiratory irritation. It makes the water smell fresh. Very little, if any, chemical smell. The other benefit of clearzone is that this process also polishes the water to crystal clear clarity, providing the filter is kept clean and general water balance is maintained.

CLEARZONE IS THE ULTIMATE IN SPA SANITISATION AND DEFINITELY THE WAY TO GO IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR GREAT WATER QUALITY TO ENJOY WITH AND LOOK AFTER YOUR FAMILY!

Clearzone features AOP (Advance Oxidation Process) technology to help deliver incredibly crystal clear spa water with minimal chemical odours or associated eye, skin and respiratory irritation. 

Clearzone helps clarify your spa water by generating a powerful oxidiser that burns up dissolved solids in the water so the filter can catch them, it then quickly converts back to oxygen leaving no chemical residual or off gassing odours. This is further enhanced by Ozone AND UV-C sterilisation to kill 99.95% of all bacteria and virus material that pass through the clearzone Unit. Clearzone also breaks down and removes chloramines which are the by product of chlorine which causes the skin, eye and respiratory irritation typically associated with chlorine. This process makes the task of managing the quality of your spa water much easier. It leaves you with much clearer water, significantly reduced need for chemical sanitisers, and greatly reduced chemical odours. Clearzone also significantly increases the length of time between the need to change the spa water.

The Ultimate in Water Sanitisation

Combining smart technology with easy water care, we've created the most energy efficient way to maintain perfect water quality

Smart filtration

The SV Series Smart Filtration delivers the lowest possible daily filtration cost by recognising the spa is filtering whilst heating and automatically adjusting filtration cycles to account for runtime spent during heating. Other spa controls run fixed amounts of filtration not considering pump runtime during heating resulting in higher energy consumption for no benefit

One touch sanitise

The One Touch Sanitise button activates a 20-minute water clean cycle that immediately engages the ozone/UV sanitiser module and filtration pump and also sequentially operates all jet pumps and the blower to purge plumbing lines and refresh water quality after spa use. Upon exiting the spa, a simple button press activates the cycle, refreshing the water when it is needed the most.

Programmable filtration

Spas come in many shapes and sizes and usage time and frequency varies between spa owners. In addition, different spa chemical treatments demand varying lengths of filtration runtime. The SV Series Smart software allows easy adjustment of the daily filtration runtime from 1 -24 hours via a user-friendly menu in the spa-side keypad.

Daily auto sanitise

A ten-minute automatic daily sanitising cycle that engages all pumps and blowers in sequence to purge plumbing lines while filtering and running the ozone/UV sanitiser. This feature guarantees no stagnant water becomes trapped in accessory pump or blower lines during days when the spa is not being used, ensuring all spa water remains fresh and ready for your next spa use.
