open / seat free area to one end.

time for yourself. It’s an inspiring exercise machine. It’s a gentle recovery tool. A spa is a part of your everyday life, so choose one that fits

Just in case you needed another reason to invest in a swim spa, the most important one would have to be your health. Sure, the bubbles
and champagne that accompany kicking back in a hot tub are nice but these health benefits are what will keep you feeling fit and refreshed for years

Diving in and buying a new portable spa is very exciting; deciding from the endless colour options, choosing your LED lighting pack and
even how many reclining seats you can sink yourself into, but there are a few extra things to take note of to ensure your new spa is not only built
to last, but that it costs you as little to run as possible.

Sapphire Spas have been testing our Clearzone DOUBLE DOSE water clarity system. The attached picture is after a week with no chlorine whatsoever and bather use of 2 people every day. It’s been hot and humid here the last few days, so some pretty sweaty bodies going into the water each day. We had to add the fake flower to actually prove there was water in this spa! Looked empty without it!
Like bathing in drinking water!

Sales people use brake horsepower (Bhp) when rating pumps to deliberately mislead
you into thinking it’s more powerful. Brake horsepower (Bhp) is the horsepower required to apply a stop brake to the pumps electric motor. Continuous flow horsepower (Hpcf) is the horsepower generated by the water pump that is delivered to the spa jets; this is the accepted industry ‘yardstick’. No spa, imported or Aussie made, is currently manufactured with 4Hpcf pumps; they will be 4Bhp which is actually 2.25Hpcf.
Sapphire Spas use 5.2Bhp = 3Hpcf pumps which can be up to 25% more powerful at
the jets than most of our competition.
