The temperature of your Jacuzzi® can be set from 80-104 and regulated to hold at the set temperature so it cannot get too hot to safely soak.

Because Jacuzzi® hot tubs are so energy efficient, we recommend you leave the tub at your preferred temperature. It is more efficient to maintain a preferred soaking temperature than to increase temperature on demand. 

We’ve never had a hot tub freeze in Vermont. As an added layer of protection, the Jacuzzi® ProLink™ WiFi module, available on many models, is an app that can alert us (or you) if the temperature gets dangerously low. In addition, the app allows you control functions of the hot tub remotely. We also work with alarm companies to install low temp alarms to alert us before power failure issues cause damage.

We can deliver and install hot tubs year round. Our busiest months are April-December. While we typically do not install during winter months, we can always make exceptions.  The only constant is mother nature dictates when a tub can be delivered, so snow or ice storms usually make it unfavorable for installing outdoors.

Salt is corrosive and is not a good long-term solution for sanitizing your hot tub. (Think about the underside of our car after driving on salted roads in the winter – rust!) Jacuzzi uses Ozone and UV light as secondary sanitizers (after chlorine or bromine) to keep your hot tub clean because they are very effective and have fewer side effects including deterioration of equipment. 

Jacuzzi’s CLEARRAY PRO3TECT® supports a hands-free approach to water care. Designed to work with CLEARRAY® UV-C technology, it automatically oxidizes impurities in the water. The low-output ozone has minimal off-gassing and prolongs equipment life longer than traditional ozone systems. This genuine Jacuzzi® part is specifically calibrated to work with the filtration system in your hot tub and is available as a upgrade on any new spa.

The CLEARRAY® UV-C system offers clean and clear water with less chemicals. Using UV-C technology to neutralize waterborne pathogens and reduce the amount of sanitizer you use, CLEARRAY® makes it easier than ever before to maintain clean, fresh, clear water. It comes standard on all models and requires a simple annual bulb change.

The quality of your drinking water is not an issue for hot tubs. There are several solutions to hard water that can be easily applied. Regular, proper maintenance also keeps your water quality high and the hot tub enjoyable.
