Leading Energy Efficiency
The Hot Spring® Energy Smart® system ensures that your spa will be hot and ready when you are while keeping energy costs low.
High-Density Foam Insulation
Multiple layers of the same, high-density polyurethane foam used in commercial freezers insulate the spa shell to help lock in heat.
This exclusive insulation fills the cabinet completely with a density four times greater than the half-pound foam used in most spas.
Hot Spring Spa Covers
Custom-fit covers ensure a tight seal to lock in heat. Dense foam cores and an exclusive hinge seal increase insulating ability for additional energy efficiency.
Insulated Base Pan
Structural ribbing on the bottom of Highlife Collection spas increases energy efficiency by creating insulating air space and minimizing contact with cold ground.
This patented heater uses a unique housing and heater element that maximizes heat transfer.
A patented pump shroud captures heat from the equipment compartment and transfers it to the water for less energy consumption.
SilentFlo 5000® circulation pump
A dedicated low-energy pump circulates water while using less energy than a 40-watt light bulb.

All models meet or exceed stringent California Energy Commission (CEC) and APSP 14 energy efficiency standards for portable spas. Actual energy costs depend on spa model, usage, temperature and other factors, but you can use the table below to estimate actual energy cost of a mid-sized Highlife Collection spa in heavy use.
MONTHLY COST ESTIMATES = RATE X KILOWATT HOUR
Temp: Approximate annual mean ambient temperature
kWh: Approximate average kilowatt hours per month to operate spa**
Rate: Approximate average rate charged per kilowatt hour in dollars***
Cost: Approximate average monthly energy cost to operate spa**
*In Canadian dollars; based on average rates from the Alberta Utilities Commission, March 2022.
**Based on a medium-sized Highlife Collection spa set at 102 °F used six times per week – 15 minutes with jets on and 15 minutes with jets off during each use. Testing conducted by independent third-party certified laboratory in a controlled environmental chamber at multiple ambient temperatures using continuous data acquisition monitoring of watts, temperature and humidity, with all equipment calibrated to ensure data accuracy. Individual energy consumption will vary depending on set water temperature, actual consumer usage patterns, and actual environmental ambient conditions.
