Physician Designed Zone Therapy

Whether it’s diminishing the stresses of everyday life, healing a sports injury, relieving aching joints and stiff muscles due to arthritis or simply helping you achieve a good night’s sleep – your AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tub can help with Physician designed Zone Therapy®.  Zone Therapy® utilizes strategically positioned jets to target specific pain zones that contain muscular trigger points. 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 throughout the entire body. The Zone Therapy® concept has been designed by medical specialists in the fields of physical rehabilitation and massage therapy.

TheraMAAX Jets

The proprietary TheraMAAX® Jets utilize a scientifically designed grill surrounding the nozzle of the jet. This grill reduces drag on moving parts and cohesion of the jet stream. The TheraMAAX® design maximizes performance and improves the massaging action. The three spoke stainless steel escutcheon provides a textured landing for your fingers. This natural shape and position of the landing area makes it easy to adjust the power of the jet.

Comfort Collar

A neck massage therapy system is one of the most relaxing features in a spa. The reverse molded Comfort Collar’s unique cushion supports 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, it’s like having your neck massaged by a loved one. This hallmark feature is one of the reasons many have already chosen an AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tub.

X-Series Collar

The convenient X-series option replaces the Comfort Collar® and 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.

Crystal Clear Water

Perfect moments deserve perfect, crystal clear water. The water maintenance of your spa is made easy by the exclusive features of AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL’s complete 4 step cleaning system and dual sanitization.

CleanZone™ Ultra

The CleanZone® Ultra dual sanitization system uses the power of UVC light and ozone, the same technology utilized in many communities around the world to purify drinking water. CleanZone® Ultra kills 99.9% of micro-organisms, bacteria, viruses and parasites. This system is the perfect blend of hygiene, purity and technology.

CleanZone™

The CleanZoneTM water purification system will automatically maintain healthy, crystal clear water while greatly reducing chemical maintenance. CleanZoneTM is a cartridge oxidizer that generates oxygen and cleans your spa water.

Appliance Grade™

The steel structure and Northern Exposure® Insulation in AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tubs allow for complete service of the entire structure and all mechanical parts. Essentially the spa can be serviced and brought back to factory specifications right in your backyard for the lifetime you own it.

This is called “Appliance GradeTM ”, since the hot tub is built to the same service and safety standards as many other major home appliances.

steel-structure
Steel Sub-Structure

The Steel Sub-Structure used in AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tubs has the highest strength to weight ratio of any building material available. The streel frame provides greater structural integrity than wood, as well as superior corrosion protection for a much longer life. Unlike wood, steel is dimensionally stable. It will not expand or contract with moisture, which over time can damage the spa’s exterior. Sturdy and built to last, the inorganic 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.

Service

Conventional foam-filled hot tubs are extremely hard to service and are often damaged in the process. It is very costly to bring these back to factory specifications.

ABS Sealed Base

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

Lifetime Steel Structure Warranty

Conventional foam-filled hot tubs are extremely hard to service and are often damaged in the process. It is very costly to bring these back to factory specifications.

northern-exposure

Northern Exposure

Northern Exposure® is the ultimate hot tub insulation system. This patent pending thermal barrier technology recycles heat energy for more efficient heating and lower energy costs. 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. Finally the entire exterior of the hot tub is wrapped in 3M ThinsulateTM Insulation, the same incredible material utilized in winter clothing. This three layer patent pending system ensures energy created by the spa stays in the spa.

BlueMAAX®

The Northern Exposure® Insulation System features our eco-friendly BlueMAAX® insulation. Made from recycled natural fiber, it is approved by the U.S. Green Building Council. The insulation contains no chemical irritants, is treated with a borate based solution to prevent mold/mildew growth, pest infestation, and acts as a fire retardant. BlueMAAX® replaces the urethane foam in “foam filled” hot tubs. [Foam filling produces volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) which are harmful to the environment.]

Insulating Cover

AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL’s premium grade insulating covers contain a unique copper lining, removable heat sealing pillows to vent excess heat off in the summer and a tailored fit to keep the heat in when cooler. The cover also acts as an important safety barrier to the spa.

Ultra Quiet

The same insulation that makes an AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tub energy efficient also aids in it’s ultra quiet operation. Sound energy is trapped and deadened inside the hot tub by the insulation sound barrier. Quet operation is essential to ensure a peaceful relaxing experience throughout the entire backyard.

Lifetime Insulation Warranty

The insulation system in your new AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tub is warranted to maintain the same insulation value as it had at the time it was manufactured. The high R value, Appliance GradeTM construction will allow a technician to service the entire spa and bring it back to factory specifications at home.
