Portable spas

Sit back and relax at the end of a hard day in a warm and soothing spa

Suitable for year-round use, a portable spa is easy to install and provides an excellent way to entertain and relax in your own backyard – and you can even take it with you when you move as all of the equipment is enclosed in the surrounding spa cabinet.

Relaxing in a spa has many health benefits, such as increased blood circulation, lowered blood pressure, stress reduction and relief from sore and aching muscles and joints.

Portable spas can be placed on a solid base either above or partially below ground level (providing access is possible all around the spa). They are typically batch manufactured and come with associated warranties for workmanship and parts. This doesn’t mean your spa cannot be customised, you can still choose size, model, shell colour, cabinet colour, jets and additional accessories such as lights, speakers and programmable timers.

The shell of a portable spa is typically made from acrylic and fibreglass as these materials provide strength and durability while withstanding the chemicals needed to keep the water sanitised as well as the heat.

The cabinet of a portable spa is typically made from wood or thermal plastic, which is more durable and requires less maintenance. The cabinet supports the shell and hides the equipment required to operate the spa.

Spas seat between four and twelve people and can come in many seating configurations to suit your needs. Many models offer independent seat controls so that every person can enjoy their own custom jet settings, and with hundreds of jet types to choose from blissful relaxation won’t be far away.

Spas are surprisingly economical, typically running at around $20-$30 per month to operate. They also require little maintenance once water-quality processes are established. Spa covers help to retain heat and keep water clean.

As with any investment, it’s important to get the right advice. Find your local SPASA member to discuss your backyard dream.
