Sapphire ticks all the boxes, so how do you choose which Sapphire SPA POOL suits you best? Start by asking yourself the questions below.....


PURPOSE : how do you intend to use your spa?

To gain an understanding of yours and your family's expectations, consider the features that are important to you. Which of the Sapphire Spas experiences are you hoping to create? 

‘sapphire kids’ - splash, backyard pool, fun and bubbles

‘sapphire family’ - quality family time, how to get your kids active?

‘sapphire massage’ - hydrotherapy, aching back / neck / shoulders, natural therapies

‘sapphire fitness’ - cardio exercise, swim training, weight loss, body toning

POWER = product model

Speak to your electrician about your available power supply as this will determine how many pumps & massage jets you can run.

PROPERTY : where will spa sit in the backyard?

Creating a picture in your mind of where your spa will sit is an important part of the decision making process. You should also be considering cost of delivery and concrete slab etc.

PRICE : lets talk money

Having a budget in mind will enable you to choose the best spa for your needs, within your price bracket.

PERMISSION : address local regulations

Regulations differ by geographic location so you should consider permit, fencing & certification requirements for your region.


You will feel confident in your spa purchase when you can find a spa manufacturer that ticks these boxes.

How long has the company been around?

Look for a company that’s well established in the industry so they’re around to support you and their product in years to come

Is the company Australian owned?

This can be important if you’re after replacement parts or technical support


Are the spas and swim spas actually made in Australia?

If the spas are imported as a complete product, the company possibly won’t have much knowledge on how the spa is built and what’s required to support and repair any issues


Do they claim to be energy efficient?

Do they claim to be energy efficient and can they demonstrate this

Are the spas made from optimum components and structurally sound?
Will your purchase be protected by a warranty that is honoured by an Australian based company?
Do they provide helpful local customer support?

Spas are designed to blend with the flow of your home. You’ll enjoy using your spa every day if it’s close to your living area or even part of your outdoor space

Here are some photos of our customers' homes to give you ideas of where a spa can be installed:

On your backyard deck

Spas are designed to be part of your everyday life so placing it in your outdoor living space is ideal. Ensure structural integrity of your decking will support the weight of your spa when in use

Concrete slab / paved area

A stable paved area or preferably a reinforced concrete slab of at least 100mm for spa pools / 150mm for swim spas is a suitable foundation for your spa

Incorporated into your swimming pool area

If you already have a swimming pool area in your backyard or are in the process of creating one, why not add a spa? Especially throughout the colder Winter days, a warm spa or swim spa pool is the perfect addition to your outdoor space and can be used 365 days of the year with our simple temperature control systems

Fully-recessed into a backyard deck

You can build your deck right up to the edge of the spa cabinet, but the weight of the spa is supported underneath on a concrete slab and you must provide for easy access to equipment within the cabinet doors

Semi-recessed into a backyard deck

Work with the slope of your block or consider this style of installation if you're positioning your new spa pool or swim spa near your outdoor decking space. Equipment access will be allowed for as deck design is created

A small patio or balcony

If you think you don’t have the space for a spa, then think again! Our compact range is designed with a smaller footprint but still packed with all the features you expect from a Sapphire Spa. Ensure structural integrity of your space will support the weight of your spa when in use

Helicopter or crane delivery

We can deliver your new spa pool or swim spa by crane over houses if necessary or even by helicopter for apartment living or where road access is not available

Spas are designed for daily use, so look for a reliable spa that you can count on every day. Our POWERsmart operating equipment is the most efficient way to keep your spa ready to use at any time. A dedicated filtration pump teamed with Clearzone simplest method of filtration and water quality. POWERsmart heat and cool pumps keep your spa at your set temperature 24/7, using up to 75% less energy than an electric element. Our heatlock+ insulation system allows Sapphire to create the most energy efficient spa in the World today.

Sapphire have designed our spas to address as many of the common reasons our customers are looking to incorporate a spa into their everyday life.

If you have back problems, a daily gentle hydro massage may assist in your recovery or at least keep the muscles warm and moving. If you’ve been trying to lose the last few stubborn kgs or firm up your hips, thighs and buttock muscles, stimulate blood flow to these areas in one of our full body sculpting loungers; enjoy the benefits of muscle stimulation in the comfort of your own backyard.

Neck & shoulder massage system

Our wrap-around jet collar hugs your neck to target the pressure points of the neck and shoulder areas of your upper back; reaching deep into muscles where tension is often held. 4 powerful jets have been positioned within our integrated, padded headrest. Each jet can be individually adjusted for water volume & flow direction, allowing you to enjoy a therapeutic massage suited to your needs

Thighs & buttocks

Exercising in water has added benefits to land-based activity. Your muscles are challenged from all directions by the surrounding water as you swim, jog, walk, run and stretch. Massage jets will stimulate blood flow in problem areas of the thighs and buttocks, simulating the benefits of exercise

Weight loss

Regular low impact exercise is recommended by weight loss professionals as a ‘fat burning’ activity. If regular exercise is not always possible, or if you are just feeling lazy, a spa pool can simulate the beneficial effects of exercise

Back pain

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 spas provide a supportive environment for gentle remedial stretches and exercise, protecting muscles with the warm water of your spa

Maintain motion

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

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

Reflexology footcell

Stimulate pressure points within the soles of your feet. 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 and lower legs, our ‘at rest’ angled foot recess will treat your aching feet to a ‘foot rub’ that never has to end

Oxygen detox 'bed of bubbles'

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

Elderly & 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 can just as effectively be performed whilst holding the bar, mounted in front of the swim jets, for support

Resistance work / body building

Take a resistance band into your spa and just experiment. During the development of our spas, we have been trialling all the classic exercises you can perform with a band, and found that we can increase the intensity of the workout by creating further resistance and instability when powering up the jets


Once your fitness training is complete, move across to the therapy seats, packed with a powerful array of jets, to stimulate blood flow & encourage muscle recovery


The warm water of your spa will increase blood flow, enhancing your workout with greater mobility and protecting your muscles with a more effective post training stretch

Their powerful air and water jets ensure a blissful therapeutic experience for all users. So if you want a slice of heaven in your backyard, a spa from the Sapphire Spas family range could be just what you are looking for.

This large amount of space is the perfect size to offer comfortable and relaxing seats for every person in the spa. This spa provides back and neck massages for five out of six seats. The sixth and final seat is a luxury like no other. This last seat is a recliner that offers a full body massage featuring 16 jets that has its own personal control panel can control.



Entertainer : larger spas for parties and big families


The largest spa pool we offer, the myTeam provides uncompromised comfort and enjoyment for you and the whole crew. It features his and hers recliner chairs with up to 26 jets including feet, calves, thighs, and back and the massage experience is completed by the integral neck and back massagers. With an assortment of jet arrangements in the other seating positions too, there is no need for anyone to miss out in this relaxation masterpiece.

The myTeam spa might be the biggest, but the myFreinds spa is definitely the most popular for socialisng. Featuring enough seats for 8 people, this spa’s claim to fame is the seamless design of the 6 communal seats, removing any boundaries to the fun that can be had. The premium model features LED waterline lighting, a waterfall, and foot massagers, making it the perfect place to relax on your own or in a group.
