  1. ThermoSpas Deliver The Ultimate Massage

    Leave a Comment

    After a long day of work, all most of us want to do is come home and relax. Well, imagine coming at the end of the day and receiving a full-body massage in your backyard with just the touch of a button. This dream can become a reality with a ThermoSpas hot tub.

    Hot tubs are one of the greatest places to receive a massage. The hot water increases your blood circulation, allowing your muscles to relax and loosen. This increases the effectiveness of the jets’ massage.

    ThermoSpas offers the most extensive line of hot tub jets out there. Most other standard spas have about 20 jets, while ThermoSpas have an average of 70 jets that don’t add any costly horsepower. These jets work together to push the tension out of your muscles, prevent muscle soreness and flush toxins out of your system with an incredible massage. Plus, ThermoSpas makes an optional bubbling system available to further soothe and relax your aching muscles.

    ThermoSpas Unique Jet Technology

    Let’s take a closer look at the extensive line of hot tub jets to see how they work together to deliver the ultimate massage. ThermoSpas’ Swivel Action Direct Flow jet design and manifold plumbing system allows us to not only put more jets in our spas, but also allows us to install a wider variety of jets to suit your individual therapeutic needs.

    Some of the jets in ThermoSpas are easily interchangeable and each can be individually controlled. This allows you to create your own custom seat to target different areas of your body. Each of the types of hot tub jets works different to give you an endless amount of options for a unique massage every time. From the Pulsating Jets’ gentle, pulsating massage to the Therapy Jet’s powerful massage technique, each jet works to meet different needs. When various types of jets are used together, they offer an incredibly complex and relaxing massage.

    But the customization options don’t stop there. Our patented Total Control Therapy option allows each seating area to have it’s own individual pump, so that each seat can be activated independently and every person in the hot tub can receive the type of massage that they desire. A person who just came home from work may want to relax in their spa with a medium-pressure massage. However, their partner with back pain might already be enjoying a high-pressure massage to reduce their pain. In most standard spas, these two people wouldn’t be able to satisfy their individual desires while in the spa together. But in a ThermoSpas hot tub, they can.

    This is possible thanks to our Throttle Control Valve. The valve allows each bather to adjust the pressure of the jets in their seating area without affecting others. This way, your entire family can relax comfortably together.

    For a full-body massage, we recommend Wave Lounge

    One of the most loved ThermoSpas features is the Wave Lounge, which offers an incredible full body massage. This lounge is built into the hot tub and features nearly 60 jets that cover the full length of your body. Let’s take a look at how it works.

    When you turn the Wave Lounge on, the first set of jets in the Pillow Massager gently massage your neck and shoulders. A few seconds later, the jets move on to massage your spine and lower back. After this, your legs and thighs receive the powerful stream of water from the jets. Finally, your feet receive a pulsating massage, and the soothing cycle repeats itself.  If you’re feeling pain in a specific area or just want to massage an isolated section of your body, you can push the pause button on the control panel next to you and the Wave Lounge will work solely on the body area of your choice until you’re ready to move on.

    For the perfect neck massage, we recommend Pillow Jets

    Unfortunately, the neck regularly falls victim to pain and tension. We know how important neck massages are to relieving that pain and tension, so we created Pillow Jets. Pillow Jets are another one of our beloved inventions that pushes a strong stream of warm water across the back of your neck. You can adjust the water intensity with a control valve to create the perfect neck massage.

    If you want the ultimate massage experience, look no further. ThermoSpas deliver better massages than any other spa on the market with their patented technology. You’ll never have to go to sleep without a relaxing massage first. To find out more about ThermoSpas jets and massaging capabilities, feel free to contact us. We’d love to hear from you.

  2. Clean Your Jets: Hot Tub Jets and Line Maintenance

    Leave a Comment

    As diligent you might be with cleaning your hot tub’s water, the chemicals you use do not protect from bacterias and build up inside the hot tub’s jets’ plumbing lines. These are the hoses that send water from the pumps out to your jets to massage your muscles and relax your joints. These lines need a special cleaning procedure to keep them from contaminating your water and ensure your jets are giving the best possible stream.

    Flushing your lines and cleaning your jets used to be a difficult procedure, but thanks to Thermospas Jet Line Cleaner, the process has become much simpler. By using Thermospas patented chemical cleaner before draining a hot tub, then using ThermoGloss and Thermospas Multi-Purpose Cleaner for your hot tub’s jets, you’ll have highly effective hot tub jets pumping clean and safe water.

    First, you’ll want to use your Thermospas Jet Line Cleaner to flush out your lines*. This cleaner and more can easily be purchased at the Thermospas Online Store.

    • Start by removing your hot tub filter and cleaning separately. You can find out more about that here.
    • Before draining your hot tub, add the contents of the Thermospas Jet Line Cleaner to the water so it can begin its cleaning process.
    • Turn on pumps and run your jets at full power for 15 minutes.
    • After 15 minutes, turn off your pumps and let hot tub water sit for one hour
    • Again, turn your pumps on and let jets run for 15 minutes.
    • Drain your hot tub making sure to hose off the walls as it drains.

    Using the Thermospas Jet Line Cleaner will effectively sanitize and clear out your hot tub’s lines. The Jet Line Cleaner dissolves dirts, soap, and bacteria that’s hidden from the hot tub’s main area. It also helps clean the jets and fittings that can discolor over time.

    Once you’ve cleaned the jet lines, it’s time to clean your hot tub’s shell and jets to ensure the best possible performance. By using a combination of ThermoGloss and Thermospas Multi-Purpose Cleaner, you can keep your hot tub jets and shell looking pristine.

    • Start by allowing drained hot tub to dry.
    • Use Thermospas Multi-Purpose Cleaner to wash away and scum lines resting at the top of the (would be) water level. Use a rag to wipe away and scum around the jets as well.
    • Shake ThermoGloss well before using, then apply only to the shell’s surface. This helps create a hard, durable, protective coating on the shell that seals the surface and hides scratches in the acrylic.
    • Once dried, spray the Multi-Purpose cleaner on the shell and wipe clean. Use that rag to clear out any residue by the hot tub jets making sure they’re clean.

    Once you have cleaned both shell and jets, you can refill your hot tub. Wait until the hot tub is filled up to run the jets once more. Then, you’re set to add your usual chemical balancers and start enjoying your hot tub again.

    You should clean your jets and jet lines every 3 – 6 months depending on the amount of hot tub use and how often you’re draining your hot tub. If you have more questions about Thermospas Hot Tubs or any of our cleaning products, don’t hesitate to contact us, we’d be happy to help.

    *We do not recommend cleaning the jet pump lines when the temperature is near or below freezing.

  3. Water Jets and The Bubbling System Explained

    Leave a Comment

    Hot Tubs are designed to work in two separate ways, waterjets and air bubbling systems. The most commonly used by all spa manufacturers are the waterjets. A pump draws in water from the hot tub and sends it through a series of jets. Topside valves mix air into the water stream creating a more vibrant water pressure. ThermoSpas unique manifold plumbing system not only allows us to install more jets but also a larger variety of water jets than any other spa. (more…)
