The Softub® Hydromate system was designed with heat recovery technology, incorporating the pump, motor, and heating systems into one single unit. Thanks to the clever arrangement of these technical components, a Softub®’s water can also be heated using the motor’s excess heat. Softubs® incorporate the intelligent technology of the SmartChip. With the SmartChip, Softub® hot tubs maintain the set temperature on the control panel by turning the pump on and off automatically. The built in safety mechanism prevents the tub from overheating if there’s a problem with the temperature sensors as well as prevents the pump from turning on if the temperature is too high. The SmartChip also prevents the pump from turning on if the voltage is too low and could damage the pump.
Because it can be plugged into any standard 120V, dedicated 15-amp outlet and in light of the design of the HydroMate system, the Softub® is the most energy-efficient hot tub available, gallon for gallon. The sealed, high-density insulated cover keeps the heat from escaping when the tub is not in use. A Softub® spa can be kept at 104 degrees and be used for 20 minutes every day for an average cost of less than $15 or less per month!
For over 30 years, Softub® spas have been manufactured in a green facility without the release of harmful VOC* chemicals. Softub® was green before it was fashionable.
