    The World’s Quality Hot Tub

    Your American Whirlpool® hot tub has been designed for years of hydrotherapy and relaxation. The Northern Exposure® Insulation System, Steel Frame and Dr. designed Zone Therapy® are just a few of the exclusive features you will discover as you experience your new American Whirlpool® hot tub.

    Color Options

    Acrylic Shell Colors

    Every AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL™ hot tub has an attractive interior finish made from continuous cast acrylic. This is superior to Ethelyene "soft plastic" surfaces. The hard, non-porous surface resists stains, fading, scratches and chemical abuse. WIth the look of granite, pearl or metalescence, the extremely rugged and durable finish offers beauty and peace of mind.

    Cabinet DuraMAAX® Siding

    DuraMAAX® is a state of the art wood-alternative material that has the look and feel of natural wood, without the maintenance. This material is impact resistant, impervious to weather or insect damage and will never splinter, crack or rot. The attractive exterior locks in heat and seals out cold air providing a beautiful look and feel.

    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.

    4 Step Filtration System

    1. Weir Door - Breaks the water surface tension and traps debris.
    2. First Filter - Removes oil and ultra fine particulates up to 10 microns.
    3. Basket - Captures debris before filtering for easy removal.
    4. Spa Filter - Oversized filter permits the high flow 1000gpm intake of water to be cleaned and returned into the spa.


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

    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

    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.

    Physician Designed Zone Therapy Jets Overlay on Man
    Zone 1:

    Suboccipital Trigger points in the area where the neck meets the back of the head is a common cause of headaches. The Comfort Collar® gently cradles your head while targeting this area.

    Zone 2:

    Trapezius Trigger points can contribute to pain across the shoulders, and upper back. An array of jets target these sensitive areas, providing an improvement in blood circulation and gently dissolving away the feeling of tension.

    Zone 3:

    Paraspinal Increased tension in the back muscles on either side of the spine can be linked to many medical conditions. An effective combination of jets provides soothing stimulation for incredible full body relief.

    Zone 4

    Gluteal Sitting can lead to increased tension in muscular trigger points surrounding the hips and upper thighs. Jets positioned at the sides of the seat bring you a stimulating massage to dissolve tension in these muscles.

    Zone 5:

    Lumbosacral Aching lower back pain is something most of us will experience. Back pain is linked to excess tension in muscular trigger points in the lower back. The swirling motion of the jets provides a massage to the lower back to loosen your knots of tension and bring relaxing relief.

    Zone 6

    Foot Relief Zone® Many important nerve endings in the feet connect to all parts of your body. Sore and tired feet can affect how we feel all over. The ingenious Foot Relief Zone® targets the upper and lower parts of the feet with streams of water that provide a complete massage for relaxation throughout the body.

    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.

    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 Thinsulate™ 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.


    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 Quite

    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.

    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 Grade™", since the hot tub is built to the same service and safety standards as many other major home appliances.

    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.

    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.

    Ultimate Comfort

    At American Whirlpool® we know comfort. For over 40 years we have designed the worlds most comfortable hot tubs thanks to patented features like the zero gravity Performance Seat™ and Zone Therapy®. Seats are specifically molded to fit a variety of shapes and sizes so you can find the one that’s right for you.

    Performance Seating™

    Performance Seating™ means American Whirlpool® has the most comfortable spas in the industry. Each seat is designed to provide full body immersion with proper posture, in harmony with their respective jetting pattern, for comfort and superior jet performance.

    Bluetooth Music

    Sync any bluetooth compatible device and as you slip into the soothing waters enjoy your favorite music. Two fully integrated speakers provide crisp clear fidelity for your listening enjoyment.

    Wifi Connectivity

    Download the Free American Whirlpool® App to control your spa from your hand held device. Preset temperature, set filter cycles to save money, or get it ready from inside your home before heading out to enjoy a relaxing spa experience.

    SmartTouch 2 Control

    American Whirlpool's NEW intuitive SmartTouch 2 control panels are easy to read with large colorful buttons and animations allowing you to easily control the hot tub with the tap of your finger.

    Lifetime Steel Structure Warranty

    The steel structure of your American Whirlpool® hot tub carries a lifetime warranty. This means for the lifetime of your ownership you can feel secure knowing any component of the structural frame will be replaced or fixed to factory specifications.

    Lifetime Insulation Warranty

    The American Whirlpool® insulation system is warranted to maintain the same insulation value as it had at the time it was manufactured. The high R value, Appliance Grade™ construction will allow a technician to service the entire spa and bring it back to factory specifications.
