Super efficient 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.
Our heatlock7 seven layer 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 also offer the super efficient cedar wood cabinet with cedar being a very effective insulator in its own right.
We only use quality Australian made covers that use a high density foam inlay to stop heat loss in its tracks. Our covers are super strong using aluminium inserts for extra strength.
POWERsmart intelligent operating system
All Sapphire spas come with industry leading control systems that are heat pump and gas compatible saving you up to 75% on heating costs.
Sapphire Spas are smart meter compatible and can save you 30% using off peak power - ‘power save mode’ .

Focus on varidrive80
World’s first varidrive80 - this all-in-one filtration&boost pump replaces the traditional technology of a separate circ & boost pump system. Delivering a higher volume of water & greater jet pressure in both filtration and hydrojet boost pump modes, this revolutionary pump provides better filtration, whisper quiet operation and full 3Hp hydrojet output. Eliminating the need to run an additional circulation pump to ensure adequate filtration, the varidrive80 promises crystal clear filtration for as little as 10cents a day.
With consideration for the practices of physiotherapy and remedial massage, we have programmed three unique sequencing modes into the varidrive80.
Promising much more than a ‘basic’ wave pump, our V80 offers touchpad control of 80 personalised jet pressures, catering for all levels of massage requirements; relaxation / therapeutic / remedial / sports recovery / rehabilitation / body toning / circulation boost / exercise for the elderly or injured. Replacing, or at least supporting, the benefits of professional treatments, the V80 is your ‘on demand’ personal masseur.
Listening to our body, we are constantly learning & looking for ways to improve the benefits offered by our spas. Much like you update your smartphone, the V80 runs on smart software that can be updated as we learn, understand and grow inline with the health & body professionals who we trust to keep us well.

Heat&Cool pump technology
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.

POWERsmart variable heater
Did you know that most spa pools on the market today already have a built-in conventional heater? These are the standard when it comes to spa heating and they do a good job of warming the water and maintaining your set temperature.
A typical plug-in (10 or 15amp) spa heater may experience load shed shutdown however, once you turn on the jet pumps. Make sure the built in heater is a variable output heater; this will optimise performance to maximise heating output whilst the spa is in use. When you turn on the jet pump, a variable heater will assess how much power it can use to continue to heat your spa and avoid load shedding shutdown, so your spa stays warm while the jets are in use.
On average electric heating will warm water at a degree an hour and are designed to be kept warm once your water reaches the desired temperature to be most economical. Although your initial heat up will take some time, keeping the spa at ‘jump in temperature’ is the best and most economical way to utilise these heaters, instead of heating from cold each use. The benefit of this heating is that they are fuss free being contained underneath the spa cabinet, no additional connections or installation is required, and they do their job well. For most people, this is all that they need to use and enjoy their spa, but if you’re looking to reduce your running costs further, this is when external heaters will come into play.
Crystal clear water with minimal use of chemicals
Our automatic filtration looks after water purity for you. Our clearzone purification system is up to 5x more efficient than conventional water treatment methods.
