50mm Directional Jet

40mm Air Jet

Programmable Circulation Pump

Up until recently, there were two types of filtration pump systems available. The first was a two speed pump which filtered on low speed and switched to high speed when the jets were turned on. Two speed pumps are still available, but the pumps are usually more noisy and less reliable.

The second system was a very small circulation pump which ran 24 hours a day regardless of whether you needed it to or not. Arcadia instead uses a programmable circulation pump. It is quieter and more reliable than a two speed pump, but can be programmed to run for between 2 and 24 hours per day depending on how much the spa is being used.


Variable Output Heater

The heater of your spa draws more power than any other component. As a result, when the big jet pump or pumps turn on, the heater usually has to turn off, as unless your spa is hard wired, a conventional outdoor power point cannot provide enough power to run the heater and big jet pump at the same time.

Arcadia however, use a variable output heater. This means when the spa's jet pump is turned on, the heater turns DOWN rather than OFF. This has the benefit of maintaining the spa's temperature while you are using it, rather than cooling it down.

High densityHigh Density Lid

As heat rises, most of the heat loss in a spa occurs through the spa's cover. As such, it is important that the spa's cover is manufactured from a high density foam that has better heat retention properties. All Arcadia Spas uses a high density foam insert which is also heat shrink sealed to prevent water ingress, prolonging the cover's life.


Perimeter Insulation

There are several ways to insulate a spa. Arcadia spas have chosen to use perimeter insulation. Whilst more expensive to produce than foaming the shell of the spa, it does have the benefit of insulating the water that is in the plumbing of the spa, as well as the water in the spa itself.


Dual Layer Insulation*

Acting like double glazed windows, the dual layer insulation system traps air between the foam insulation on the shell and the reflective foil and foam insulation of the cabinet, to create a pocket of warm air.

This system ensures that not only the water in the spa is insulated, but also the water in the pipework. This option adds a higher level of heat retention than Arcadia’s standard perimeter insulation.

Ozone Water Clarifier
Ozone Water Clarifier

Ozone is a naturally occurring gas and when missing with water, is very effective at oxidising and eliminated organic compounds such as algae. Arcadia Spas offer an optional ozone clarifying system that will significantly reduce the amount of sanitiser required to keep your spa clean and clear.

Thermobond shell construction
Thermobond shell construction

Arcadia Spas use a 4 layer thermobond shell construction in the manufacturing of all of their spa shells.

The first layer is acrylic which gives the spa its colour. This is backed by a water proof, vinyl ester resin, marine grade polyester resin, which adds torsional strength, and, finally, a polyceramic layer which adds rigidity.

The shells are oven cured to ensure the correct bonding of the various layers. This is a crucial step that is missed by most manufacturers due to its additional cost.

PVC plumbing
Flexible PVC Plumbing

In order to eliminate the chance of kinks in the plumbing and to prolong life, Arcadia Spas use a flexible PVC plumbing material called Duraflex. This is a flexible tubing that incorporates a spiral of rigid PVC. Unlike the tubing used by many manufacturers, Arcadia Spas Duraflex plumbing is specifically designed for hot, chemically treated water and carries a 5 year no leak guarantee.

Vermin Proof Base

Vermin, snakes and rodents love the underside of spas as it is warm and dry. To repel unwanted visitors, all Arcadia Spas feature a sealed, Vermin proof base and cabinet design.

10 year warranty10 Year Non Pro rata Structural Warranty

All Arcadia Spas are offered with a 10 year 'non pro-rata' shell structure warranty. This means that if the spa's shell blisters or cracks resulting in water loss, for a period of 10 years, the spas shell shall be replaced.

5 year warranty5 Year Plumbing, Heater  & Jet Warranty

The plumbing system of all Arcadia spas is warranted against leaking for 5 years.

The heater and jets of all Arcadia Spas are warranted against defects for a period of 5 years.

2 year warranty2 Year Pump & Equipment Warranty
