The Moto-Massage® DX jet has revolutionized hydrotherapy. This unique moving jet delivers two powerful streams of warm water that sweep up and down the length your back. This one-of-a-kind back massage is only available from Hot Spring, and is included on select models.





The unique jet features twelve ports that disperse a strong, broad stream of water that gently relieves tension in your shoulders and upper back. 

Jet Stream®


One of our most powerful jets, the Jetstream jet produces a stream of water strong enough to provide soothing relief to aching feet and release tension in your back.

Rotary Hydromassage


These rotating jets create a powerful stream of moving water, providing a deep massage that relieves tension in targeted areas.


Crystal clear water is central to a great hot tub experience. We are also committed to making spa ownership as easy as possible. The Hot Spring water care and filtration systems provide exclusive features that help our hot tub owners enjoy sparkling clean water, with as little effort as possible.



This advanced water care option is exclusively available from Hot Spring. The ACE Salt Water System uses a diamond electrode to create a powerful oxidizer and chlorine sanitizer that keep your spa water sparkling clean. With the ACE system, you’ll add fewer bottled products to the water and enjoy better water quality with less maintenance.



Only available from Hot Spring, Highlife®Collection models filter 100% of the water 100% of the time, even when the jets are on. And with the longer lasting, more efficient Tri-X filters, you can enjoy cleaner water with less maintenance because these filters are dishwasher safe.
