This isn’t the 1980’s anymore! Hot tubs have come a long way from their initial designs, as manufacturers have innovated and perfected the modern hot tub into a thing of beauty. Now used as a therapy to legitimately heal and soothe the body, that innovation only continues as new technology is available.
And, as 2019 marches by, we’re expecting to see new additions to the hot tub industry, primarily in enhance features and the ability to customize the hot tub experience to your exact specifications. So whether you have a medical condition you would like to alleviate or are just looking for a fun way to relax on the weekend, there will be a hot tub for you.
Here are some of the new technology trends we’ve seen pop up, which gives us a peek into how the industry will evolve this year.
More relaxing, more massage, more therapy
Modern hot tubs are becoming more and more therapy focused, offering better relaxation, more massage options, and enhancements for at-home therapy.
Enter the Jetpack Therapy System from Bullfrog Spas. It offers completely customized therapy for people no matter their hot tub preferences.
Nobody is the same. Height, weight, and massage preferences all vary between people. The Bullfrog Jetpack Therapy system is engineered and designed to allow users to change out what Bullfrog calls “jetpacks” and then move them to the best seat for the user’s height and weight. Each jetpack seat–there are 17 to choose from–has a different jet design to focus on different areas of the body.
Personalize your experience with
Height • Weight • Massage
All you have to do is find your fit. You select your favorite massages. You place them in your favorite seats. You dial in the therapy intensity so it feels best for you.
- Deep Relief
- And more!
This amazing personalized therapy is some of the latest in hydrotherapy and is setting new standards in hot tub performance.
Keep it clean, simply and easily, with the latest in maintenance technology
Everyone loves to sit and relax in a hot tub. But, the maintenance that goes into keeping it clean and sanitary can be a deterrent. Most people aren’t aware that hot tub maintenance has been drastically simplified thanks to modern technology.
Tools like the FROG @ease have entered the market to change the way people take care of their hot tubs.
The FROG @ease combines sanitizing minerals with SmartChlor Technology to kill bacteria two ways. The result is silky soft water with fewer odors. It’s easy to maintain because the tool and chemicals are self-regulating. It knows when the water needs more and adds it automatically. When you need to do something, it simply flips over so you know to check on it.
Here are some other benefits of the FROG @ease:
- Uses up to 75 percent less chlorine–without yo-yo chlorine levels
- You only have to shock once a month
- It self regulates for continuous crystal clear water
- Easy on hot tub surfaces and has fewer odors
- No constant monitoring and no mixing chemicals
It’s a super easy way to keep your hot tub water clean, beautiful, and ready for whenever you’d like to hop in and relax.
LED lighting, waterfall features, and smart media capabilities
Of course, the basis of all hot tubs are the jets and the water. But, what truly turns a hot tub into an experience are those extra add-on features that enhance the relaxation. We’re talking lights, we’re talking sound, we’re talking ambiance.
LED lights have become really popular, giving the hot tub water an ethereal glow. With all kinds of colors to choose from, you can use the lights to set the environment.
And, beautiful waterfall features provide a focal feature and add to the ambiance.
But the real technologic revolution has been within the wireless Bluetooth capabilities of modern hot tubs. Not only can the latest hot tubs play your music straight from your phone, but you can also even control aspects of the hot tub through apps.
For example, Bullfrog Spas has their CloudControl 2 app which can be used to control 2019 models and beyond. Everything from temperature to lighting can be controlled from the app. It even lets you set reminders for cleaning and maintenance.
We’re so excited to see what 2019 continues to bring to the hot tub industry. From the amazing new hydrotherapy techniques and capabilities to the great new technologies that allow control of the hot tub from anywhere.
