What should I look for in a spa?
Always focus on quality.
You can assess the quality by looking at each item in this checklist:
The finish of the nozzles (chrome or gray); finish of the tub (standard granite or a luxury model with a marble finish); the number of pumps; the number of jets (there should be a link between the number of jets and the number of pumps. For example, 70 jets per pump give poor results, but with 40 jets per pump you get a true massaging effect).
All our spas meet all these quality standards without costing an unjustifiably high prices that our competitors charge (why pay those kinds of prices?) Tropic Spa offers high quality products, not at a Discount Price but simply at a FAIR PRICE!
What is the purpose of the circulation pump ?
All our spas are equipped with a circulation pump that filters the water (one or two times a day) to keep it clean and clear.
What is the purpose of the air jets ?
All our spas come with air jets for multiple reasons. First, you may have some medical issues and the hydro-therapy is to strong for you, so the air jets massage will provide you a perfect relaxation massage without hurting you. Second, to enjoy an aroma-therapy without mixing oil or other product with your clean water. Thank to our aroma-therapy technology, you wont mix your water with the oil. The oil is diffused inside the air bubble and pop-up when it comes out of the water to offer you a perfect relaxation experience. To conclude, it offer you the possibility to enjoy staying into your spa without getting an hydro-massage. Many other reasons may apply also… (for more informations go to Features -> Benefits of home spa)
