Filtration System

An above ground hot tub filtration system works by removing dirt, debris, and other contaminants from the water in the tub to keep it clean and safe for use.

The filtration system usually consists of a filter cartridge, which is connected to the hot tub's pump system. As water is circulated through the hot tub, it passes through the filter, which traps particles and impurities in the water.

The filter cartridge needs to be cleaned or replaced periodically to maintain the efficiency of the filtration system. Most hot tubs have a built-in timer that reminds you when it's time to clean or replace the filter.

Additionally, the filtration system may include a chemical feeder that automatically dispenses chlorine or other sanitizing agents into the water to kill bacteria and other harmful microorganisms.

Overall, the filtration system plays an important role in keeping the water in an above ground hot tub clean and safe for use. It's important to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for maintaining and cleaning the filtration system to ensure the best performance and longevity.

Special Features

Hot tubs have come a long way since their inception, and today's models are equipped with a range of special features that can enhance the user experience. In this article, we will discuss some of the most popular special features on hot tubs, including LED lighting, waterfalls, cool off seats, and Bluetooth stereos.

Cool Off Seat

One unique feature that is exclusive to CalSpas hot tubs is the cool off seat. This feature allows users to sit in a specially designed seat that is cooled by a stream of water. This can be a refreshing and invigorating experience, especially on hot summer days. The cool off seat can also be used to cool down after using the hot tub, providing users with a quick and easy way to regulate their body temperature.



Waterfalls are another special feature found in many hot tubs. These features are designed to create a relaxing, soothing sound as water cascades down the sides of the hot tub. Waterfalls can be integrated into the design of the hot tub, creating a natural, organic look that blends in seamlessly with the surrounding environment. Some models even include multiple waterfalls, providing users with a truly immersive experience.

Special Features

Control System

A hot tub control system is the brain behind the operation of a hot tub. This system controls the temperature, jets, and air supply, among other functions. In this article, we will discuss how a hot tub control system works and the different components involved in regulating a hot tub's operation.

Temperature Control

The temperature control function of a hot tub control system is responsible for regulating the water temperature. A thermostat is used to monitor the temperature of the water and activate the heater when necessary. The temperature control system also allows the user to adjust the temperature according to their preference. Once the desired temperature is reached, the temperature control system will maintain the temperature by turning the heater on and off as needed.


Jet Control

The jet control function of a hot tub control system is responsible for regulating the flow and direction of the water jets. This system can be adjusted to control the intensity of the water pressure, the number of jets that are activated, and the direction in which the jets are pointed. Some hot tub control systems also allow for the adjustment of the jet flow pattern, which can create a more customized massage experience for the user.

Air Control

The air control function of a hot tub control system is responsible for regulating the amount of air that is mixed with the water in the jets. This function can be adjusted to control the intensity of the massage provided by the jets. When the air control system is activated, it will draw air into the jets, creating a more intense massage experience.
