Steel Sub-Structure

The Steel Sub-Structure has the highest strength to weight ratio of any building material available. The light-gauge steel frame provides greater structural integrity than wood, as well as superior corrosion protection for a longer life.

Unlike wood, steel is dimensionally stable. It will not expand or contract with moisture; properties will never rot, warp, split or crack and eliminate worries of animal infestation or termite damage.

Stronger, more durable, and ideal for the environment – it’s the obvious choice for a lifetime of worry-free fun.

ABS Sealed Base

The ABS Sealed Base is an integral part of the support structure. Its one-piece construction provides a rugged foundation that seals the bottom of the spa, locking in heat and sealing out moisture.

BlueMAAX Insulation

Eco-friendly ‘BlueMAAX’ insulation is made from recycled natural fiber, contains no chemical irritants, and is treated with a borate-based solution to prevent mold/mildew growth, pest infestation, and acts as a fire retardant.

BlueMAAX replaces urethane foam commonly used in ‘’foam- filled’’ hot tubs. The ‘’foam filling’’ process in conventional spas can produce as much as 50 lbs. of volatile organic components (VOC’s) that are harmful to the environment. The new energy system also allows for easy service access and can be taken out and put back together to factory specifications right in your home.

DuraMAAX Cabinetry

DuraMAAX is a state of the art wood-alternative material that has the look and feel of natural wood, without the maintenance. The material is impact resistant, impervious to weather or insect damage and will never splinter, crack or rot.

The attractive exterior locks in heat and seals out cold air providing a beautiful look and feel.

Northern Exposure Insulation

Northern Exposure is the ultimate hot tub insulation system. All four sides of the spa, plus the floor and cover are lined with reflective copper material to reflect radiant heat energy generated from the pumps back into the spa. Heat is absorbed back into the plumbing helping raise and maintain water temperature.

The entire exterior of the hot tub is wrapped in 3M Thinsulate Insulation. This three layer patented system ensures energy created by the spa stays in the spa.

Zone Therapy™

Whether diminishing the stresses of everyday life, healing a sports injury, relieving aching joints ,and stiff muscles due to arthritis or letting you achieve a good night’s sleep—your American Whirlpool hot tub can help with Physician designed Zone Therapy™.

More jets don’t necessarily mean a more effective massage. Precisely locating the correct size jet and massaging action where they are most effective is key to relieving pain and stiffness. 

Zone Therapy™ utilizes strategically positioned jets to target specific pain zones that contain  muscular trigger points.

Comfort Collar

Our Neck Therapy Jet Massage system is one of the most relaxing features in a spa. The Comfort Collar’s unique cushion wraps around your neck, gently cradling your head while adjustable cyclone jets massage neck and shoulder muscles. The Comfort Collar also allows a relaxing massage above the water line.

Calf Zone

The Calf Zone massages the lower leg with 12 deep tissue massage jets, increasing circulation and healing properties. This feature is great if you’re on your feet a lot.

X-Option Collar

The convenient X-series increases the seat size in the deep corner seat for physical freedom of movement and enhanced comfort for those who need it. Four strategically placed cluster jets provide a deep tissue neck massage to target pressure points, relieving tension.

Foot Relief Zone

Sore and tired feet can affect how we feel all over. The ingenious Foot Relief Zone targets the upper and lower parts of the feet with streams of water that provide a “spa for your feet.’’

Performance Seating

Comfortable seating is top priority in the design of every American Whirlpool hot tub. With a wide variety of seating styles available, you’ll find the perfect model to fit your shape and size.

Seating ranges from an open style to those designed to keep you in position so the jets can work their miracles. Each is engineered to scientifically balance ergonomic support, water pressure, jet position and body buoyancy.

Deeply contoured seating provides ultimate comfort, while armrests and footwells envelop your body.

All spa jets are individually engineered to provide a unique hydro-massage. Depending on the model, your spa will have a combination of the following jets:

Positioned to focus on large muscle groups, these jets deliver a concentrated, high volume stream of water for a deep massage. Each jet is fully adjustable, allowing users to set the water flow to the most comfortable setting. Nozzle can be rotated to target sore muscles.

Positioned to focus on muscle tension zones, these jets deliver a spinning V-shaped water stream for a gentle, pulsating massage. Each jet is fully adjustable, allowing for comfortable water flow settings for everyone to enjoy.

Positioned in the foot well or shoulder areas, these jets deliver a penetrating massage to dissolve tension. This jet may be the entry point for ozone produced during automatic filtration and therefore it is not adjustable.

SmartTouch™ Controls

Advanced SmartTouch™ panels are easy to read. They allow you to change the temperature, adjust the lighting, or control your massage–with just a tap of your finger.

Unlike your smart devices this control works even when wet.

WiFi Connectivity

Put your spa’s controls in the palm of your hand. Simply download the free app, sync to your home’s WiFi system and enjoy complete control. Preset temperature, set filter cycles or getting your spa ready from the comfort of your home before heading out to enjoy a relaxing spa experience.

CleanZone® Ultra

CleanZone® Ultra kills 99.9% of micro-organisms, bacteria, viruses and parasites. This system is the perfect blend of hygiene, purity and technology.

The combination of UVC light and ozone is the same technology utilized in many communities around the world to purify drinking water. High quality water treatment is one of the most important features to consider when evaluating a spa.


Clean water is the cornerstone of spa enjoyment. The CleanZone™ water purification system will automatically maintain healthy, crystal clear water while greatly reducing chemical maintenance. CleanZone™ is a cartridge ozone system that disinfects and cleans your spa and does not require any cleaning or maintenance.
