t seems there’s no stopping the hot tub market in the UK as consumers continue to embrace them with open arms as part of a wider lifestyle choice. The signs are that the next 12 months could be equally as strong for the industry too! With a number of brands enhancing existing models as well as adding new ranges to their offering, plus some new brands vying for business in 2018, competition between companies will be as tough as ever this year and this issue, we take a closer look at what’s on offer for the season ahead.

SPA CREST EUROPE INTRODUCES NEW TUFF SPAS MODELS FOR 2018 2018 sees the introduction of two new models to the Tuff Spas range from Spa Crest Europe, the exclusive importers and distributors in the UK. Tuff Spas, manufactured in Arizona, USA, are the world’s largest producer of roto-moulded hot tubs and pioneers of the technology. The two new models are ‘Platinum’ versions of the existing popular TT450 and TT650 units; the 450 being a seven person all-seater model and the 650 seating five people in a lounger layout, and both units being 1.96m x 1.96m (77” x 77”) square.

The Platinum models feature more than double the jet-count of their standard specification counterparts, with an additional 4hp therapy pump in each to power them, delivering full body therapy focusing on all muscle trigger points. Platinum hot tubs also include up-rated filtration and heaters, as well as the normally optional multi-coloured ‘Stack Stone’ side panel decoration, to give the hot tub cladding a drystone wall type effect. As with all Tuff Spas products brought in by Spa Crest Europe, the models also feature their unique Tuff Top integral hard cover and cover lifter (which doubles as a handy shelf or table when the spa is in use), exclusive removable Blue sTUFF insulation for easier maintenance access, solid bottom to keep rodents out and heat in, large side access panels for easy access to all plumbing, varied depth seating to cater for all heights and sizes, LED multicoloured lighting system, and uniquely in the market, a lifetime warranty on the hot tub’s shell and structure.
