Quality Construction

Home / Features / Quality Construction

Our spas are built from the ground up to the highest standards. We start by building our frames using only pressure-treated lumber on top of a full ABS Base. This solid foundation is covered with our beautiful, durable cabinets. The space between the maintenance-free cabinet and the structure is filled with insulating foam. This full-foam insulation provides the most efficient heat retention rating available in any spa, and it also dramatically increases the lifespan of the spa. It makes the whole structure stronger, quieter, and more durable, in addition to protecting the plumbing from unnecessary wear due to vibration.

We top it all off with our durable, hand-sculpted acrylic shell with our lifetime Diamondbond backing. Our jets rotate on bearings rather than plastic for ease of adjustment, and our pillows are a dyed-through, closed-cell foam to prevent cracking, discoloration, and water absorption. We build a spa the same way a good house is built – to last!

Superior Plumbing & Construction

Plumbing

High quality plastic tubing is used to prevent folding and creasing that can disrupt water flow. These tubes are then both glued and clasped onto the fasteners to prevent leaking or coming loose during transit. All water flow is kept as straight as possible to ensure the best possible water pressure to all jets. This high flow system has little resistance, keeping the water pressure at its highest.

Frame

Pressure treatment is a process that forces preservatives into the wood. The preservatives help protect the wood from attack by termites, other insects, and fungal decay. This heavy-duty frame is perfect for extreme outdoor conditions, protecting the wood from wear, elements, and fungus.

PermaBase ABS Pan

Our spas can be fitted with a tough, rigid ABS thermoplastic base pan. Completely waterproof and weather resistant, this base protects your spa from the ground up. PermaBase comes standard on Platinum Elite and can be added as an option on the Island and Island Elite Spas.

Acrylic Shell

Artesian Spas proudly offers cast acrylic shells with an extra level of protection against mold and mildew by using Microban® and Bio-Lok™ technology that inhibits the growth of bacteria causing odors or stains between cleaning.

Ergonomic Design

Ergonomic Design

When designing our spas, we don’t use the latest 3D modeling software – in fact, we don’t even use a mouse. We use such blunt instruments as chisels, sand blocks, files, and putty knives. Indeed, we take pride in just how primitive our design process is. We create our molds the old fashioned way: we sculpt them by hand. The creation of the beautiful, organic forms that grace our spas is far more art than science, and the intimate human contact with our process insures that our great looks are built for the human form.

At Artesian Spas, our experts apply ergonomic seating designs, both lounge and chair, to the interior of our spas. Each seat helps maintain an even weight distribution and correct posture when enjoying the powerful massage therapy of the helix jets. The bench seats allow you to swivel to not only massage your back, but your sides and arms too.
