CLEAR WATER FILTRATION & PURIFICATION SYSTEMS

DDFS™ and DDPS™ System:   Clearwater Spas Dual Defense Filtration System™ (DDFS™) and the Dual Defense Purification System™ (DDPS™) provides the ultimate system for clean, clear, pure water.
DDFS™ – Filtration:   Clearwater Spas is the leader in Clear Water - our name says it all.  Proper circulation and filtration is necessary for clear water.  At Clearwater Spas we know the most important key to crystal clear water is maximum water turnover.  We have engineered our filtration system to go beyond standard filtering methods by combining two filters and two filtering pumps into our exclusive Dual Defense Filtration System™.  
Here is how it works. Our new dual pump - dual filter method provides twice the cleaning power.  First; body oils, lotions, contaminants and other debris are skimmed from the surface of the spa water and are then drawn into the outer walls of the filter cartridge.  Second; sediment, debris and contaminants that may have settled at the bottom of the spa are drawn in from the footwell intakes and forced upward through the outer walls of the filter cartridge.  This dual filtering system cleans the entire body of water, surface to floor, circulating more than 50,000 gallons of water per day!
DDPS™ – Purification:   Clearwater Spas Dual Defense Purification System™ uses the power of our CleanLight UVC + Ozone to kill and then oxidize micro-organisms in the water.  This combination of an Ultra-Violet germicidal (UVC) and integration of Mazzei-injected ozone offer the ultimate in water purification.  Clearwater Spas DDPS™ is a powerful disinfection system that breaks the vicious cycle of hot tub chemical use, reducing the need for high chemical doses.  This system helps destroy bacteria, viruses, algae, yeasts, unused oxidizers, and other contaminants; reduces odor and chloramines, prolongs equipment life, reduces maintenance time and cost, and purifies naturally.  The Clean Light UVC and Ozone functions as a complete purification solution when used along with the normal filtration functions of hot tubs and monitoring of water chemistry.
24/7 Circulation Pump:   The energy efficient circulation pump works to automatically filter 100% of the water through each of the filtration systems several times a day.

ENERGY EFFICIENCIES with E-Smart™ Technology | CEC Certified

Spa Cabinet Insulation System:   Reflective Thermal Barrier (RTB) rigid insulation panels with reflective thermal foil on both sides providing an R-20 value.  Our insulation system harnesses all thermal gain from the pumps and the heater inside the spa cabinet while reflecting the colder outside air away from the spa.  Our RTB insulation is 12% more energy efficient than foam filled spas.
Spa Floor Insulation System:   Our triple-layer Durafloor™ foundation system elevates and insulates the spa from the cold ground.  Our Reflective Thermal Barrier (RTB) rigid insulation panels with thermal foil on both sides are layered between a sturdy ABS molded base and an interlocking corrugated vapor barrier panel.  Our RTB insulation is 12% more energy efficient than foam filled spas.
Hardcover Insulation System:   Fully insulated 1.5 pound density virgin foam cores with 5" to 3" taper.  Top vinyl is UV resistant, mildew treated and marine grade.  Comes standard with child safety locks.  Full-length heat sealed gasket with top quality stitching.  Three panel skirt design length 4" on all sides.  Two rubber handles.  Compliant to ASTM standards for safety covers.
Plumbing & Water Flow Efficiencies:   Whisper-flow technology, powerful pump placement, manifold plumbing and sweep 90 degree plumbing for maximum hydraulic balancing water flow to each massage station.  The 24/7 circulation pump provides energy efficient water filtration.  Pump slice valves provide water conservation when servicing equipment.

DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION with E-Smart™ Technology

Shell Strength:   Environmentally-friendly shell strength are ABS-backed acrylic, with EcoSpray® and reinforced with expanded steel in heavy traffic areas.  Our EcoSpray® process is V.O.C.-FREE (volatile organic compounds) and provides safe air quality for our factory employees and our environment.
Cabinet Strength:   Cabinets available in RIM system or cedar wood.  The interlocking, unibody RIM (reaction injection molding) system cabinets are the strongest and beautiful in the industry – and were awarded ‘Product Innovation of the Year’ by the Bayer Science Corporation.  Independent structural strength test results show the straight RIM cabinet panels can withstand 1,200 pounds.
Floor Strength:   Our Durafloor™ foundation system is molded with 100% recycled ABS, fully insulated, reinforced with fluted air-flow vapor barrier.  The Durafloor™ system in silicone-sealed and screw bonded to the cabinet frame for the ultimate spa foundation system.
Pillar Support Strength:   Our PVC pillar supports will not rot, mold, rust or let you down like other spas that use wooden or steel supports.  Our pillar structural support strength is unmatched by any other.

E-Smart™ Technology  |  Standard Design Component

Our environmental commitment begins with our exclusive E-Smart™ Technology.

We are committed to protecting the health of our environment and manufacturing energy efficient hot tubs that help to conserve our natural resources. We continually work to improve our designs and manufacture methods to reduce the environmental impact of our product. The ‘e’ in our e-smart technology symbol stands for energy efficiencies, engineering, economies and environment.

Our engineering and design team begins all new spa development with a focus on energy efficiencies, ergonomic comfort, therapeutic value, using environmentally friendly products and providing a safe working environment for our employees. We pride ourselves in producing no VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compound) that pollute the atmosphere.


RIM Cabinets  |  Standard Cabinet

The hot tub industry's strongest cabinet system is backed with the best warranty.

Our interlocking RIM (reaction injection molding) cabinets are the most durable and beautiful in the industry – and was awarded ‘Product Innovation of the Year’ by the Bayer Science Corporation.  In addition, the Signature RIM cabinets are backed by the best 20-year warranty in the industry.  The world’s strongest cabinet system is “Hummer-tested-tuff!”  Shown above is a Hummer SUV on a RIM cabinet corner piece without any damage or cracking.


RTB Insulation  |  Standard Design Component

Foam-free.  Worry-free.  RTB insulation is the best and most energy efficient insulation for hot tubs.

Our RTB (reflective thermal barrier) insulation is 12% more energy efficient than spray foam insulation.  Our rigid insulation panels, with double-sided foil, reflects and recycles the heat from the internal equipment keeping the cabinet warm and dry.  With an insulation R-20 value, the RTB insulation system provides the best energy efficiency than other spas.  Our RTB insulation also contains natural salt borates which are undesirable to insects and rodents.  The removable service panels on all sides provide for easy upgrades and maintenance.  Other spray foam spas are messy and costly to service.


Shells  |  Standard Design Component

Our spa shells have the beauty, strength and eco-friendly quality that is unmatched.

Our spa acrylic shell system has three layers of strength support plus expanded steel support in heavy traffic areas for the strongest shell system in the industry.  Our environmentally-friendly EcoSpray™ strengthening process emits NO or ZERO V.O.C.'s (volatile organic compounds) – unlike fiberglass resin shells that emit toxic styrene V.O.C.’s into the air that can have adverse health effects.


Pillar Supports  |  Standard Design Component

Our PVC pillar supports stand the test of time.

Clearwater Spas uses a PVC pillar support system which will not rot, mold, rust or otherwise breakdown like other manufacturers that use wooden or steel supports. Many other manufacturers fill the entire skirt interior with low density foam which can deteriorate and attract unwanted rodents to its warm and moist environment. Clearwater Spas PVC pillar support system, combined with the RTB insulation and Durafloor, will give you a lifetime of structural support unmatched by any other.


Durafloor™  |  Standard Design Component

The Durafloor™ system insulates and protects from the outdoor elements.

Every house needs a foundation to lift its components off the cold ground, removing the structure from moisture, bugs and other negative influences. A hot tub should be built the same way. Our weather-resistant, insulated Durafloor™ is silicone-sealed and screw bonded together with the hot tub cabinet for a solid foundation. Made from 100% recycled ABS, the Durafloor™ system insulates, protects and helps to prevent heat loss that can be drawn into the cold ground (referred to as the ‘heat sink’ effect). Our RTB insulation contains natural salt borates which are undesirable to insects and rodents.
