What is included in the Avanté™ spa package?

  • Purezone™ UV-C automatic water purifier. The UV-C technology found in the Purezone™ system is not new. You will find it purifying drinking water and public swimming pools all around the world. However, Vortex Spas™ have pioneered its use in spa pools. UV sterilization kills 99.9% of waterborne viruses and bacteria, including the hard-to-reach Giardia and Cryptosporidium viruses.

  • Thermolock™ Dual layer insulation. Dual-layer insulation provides the ultimate sound deadening and heat retention. The dual layer compounds the insulation effect as it traps the warm air, using the same principle as double glazing on windows.

  • Permaframe™ Timber-free construction. Permaframe™ construction is a timber-free framing system that is impervious to rot, mildew or vermin damage. Produced using recycled, high-impact, injection molded plastic, it is designed to last indefinitely, hence the lifetime warranty.

Note: This upgrade is not available for Vortex Swim spas. Vortex Swim Spas use Hotdipped Galvanised frames instead.

Standard Vortex spa v Vortex Avante upgrade?

All our Vortex spas can be purchased with or without the Avante package. As a spa pool is an investment you want to make sure you are getting the best value for money. As with all investments, it’s always best to consider whether spending a little bit extra will transform your experience and be worthwhile in the long run.

Pros of the Avanté™:

  • Discounted price on our most popular upgrades
  • Permaframe™ Timber-free construction has a lifetime warranty
  • Extra Hydroglow™ lighting adds ambience to your spa experience
  • Dual-layer insulation will help to decrease your spas power bill

Cons of the Avanté™ package:

  • You need to pay more upfront
  • You will need to decide on the upgrade before your spa is ordered

Can I purchase a Vortex spa without the Avante package?

You can of course purchase any Vortex spa pool without the Avante package but because of the popularity, the spas in our warehouses are already kitted out with the full package of upgrades. If you choose a spa without the Avante package, your spa may take longer to arrive as it may need to be custom built and back ordered from one of our factories.


Overall, we believe the Vortex Avante pack offers excellent value for money. Yes, you will need to pay more upfront than a spa without this upgrade. But, to buy the features separately would cost a lot more. Also, remember that a spa is a long-term investment. The extra enjoyment, pleasure and peace of mind you’ll get from the additional features and better quality fittings will pay off in the long-run.

We hope this article has helped answer your questions about the Vortex™ Avanté™ package and whether it’s worth it for you. If you want to discuss the package further our team is always happy to answer your questions.
