Why choose a Vortex Cerium?

Perfect comfort

The Cerium is one of the best designed and most comfortable spa designs on the market. Most 2m x 2m spas try to be a 5 seater and end up comfortably seating 3, but the Cerium is unashamedly designed for four and seats four adults in perfect comfort.

True hydrotherapy

With up to 57 jets, the Cerium also offers a very high level of massage and because the jets are spread over 4 seats, the jet to seat count is very high.

Backlit water display

The laminar jets and water cascade are both back lit and combined with the optional jets lights, are going to give you a pretty fantastic water feature in the backyard whether you are in the spa or not.

Luxury features

Of course the Cerium incorporates all the luxurious Vortex features and offers a long list of optional lighting systems, audio systems and enhanced water maintenance technologies. If you want the best value for money, then choose the Avanté model which features the most popular upgrades at the best value.

Add Hydroplus to your Cerium

The Vortex Cerium comes in two versions, standard and Hydroplus. Both models have the same shell and features, however the Hydroplus has a selection of more powerful jets along with 2 additional jets. To run the higher jet count, the Hydroplus has 2 pumps.

The extra pump means that all four occupants are going to get a fantastic massage, all at the same time. Alternative, less users will be able to move around the spa knowing that each seating position is going to give them a different massage experience.

Just be aware though that the HP models require 32 amps to perform at their best, so you should check with your electrician that you have this much available power before committing to an HP model.

Cerium Hydroplus

Twin Lounger

A spa's lounger is undoubtably everyones favourite seat, but who wants to argue over who gets it?


Twin Lounger

To maintain domestic bliss, the Cerium Hydroplus has two loungers.


Neck and shoulder therapy seat

As the name implies, the Neck and shoulder therapy seat has downward facing 50mm jets specifically designed to massage the back of the neck and the top of the shoulders. The neck and shoulder therapy seats also feature 6, 75mm jets for a great back massage.


Cool down seat

Designed to seat you in a higher position to allow you to cool down. The Cerium Hydroplus has one cool down seat.


Cerium Features

Dual lounger seats

The Cerium is a true hydrotherapy spa. It features two loungers equipped with expertly placed hydrotherapy and air jets that soothe and massage your whole body. As the loungers are always in high demand, the Cerium has two, so they can be enjoyed together.

Neck therapy collar

The Cerium's neck therapy collar is specifically designed to target the common tight spots around the neck and shoulders. 4 x powerful 50mm hydrotherapy jets are embedded in the collar to target from above your neck and shoulders.

High pressure volcano jet

The Cerium's high pressure volcano jet is situated in the center of the spa to create a world class hydrotherapy experience. The jet is positioned in the foot-well for the ultimate foot massage.

Individual seat pressure controls

Just as some people like firm mattresses and others like softer ones, the Cerium allows you to adjust your jet pressure.  The Cerium has individual jet pressure control for each seat to ensure everyone is satisfied.

Twin Laminar jets

Laminar jets create perfect streams of back lit water giving a gentle visual display. The jets operate independently of the hydrotherapy jets, so they can be turn your spa in to an impressive light display in your back yard.

Tranquil water feature

The Tranquil water feature gives your spa a relaxing feel with a gentle back lit water cascade. This water feature runs of the filtration pump, so it can be left running while your spa is not in use- turning it in to a garden water feature.

Illuminated glass holders - optional, included in Avanté

It is important to stay hydrated whilst using your spa, but at night, it can be hard to find where you've left your favorite beverage. The Vortex Cerium has 3 illuminated glass rests so locating your drink is never a problem. They also tend to illuminate both the vessel and the liquid within it giving a nice lighting effect above the spa's water line.

Illuminated Topside Controls - optional, included in Avanté

Another thoughtful touch on the Cerium spa is that the topside controls, which alter water and air flow, are illuminated. This makes them easy to locate at night and adds to the LED lights that illuminate various parts of the Cerium spa.

Spa Health Indicator Light

The Vortex Spa health indicator light has been designed to communicate the spa’s condition to spa user without having to lift the cover. The indicator lights up blue to show it is at the correct temperature, or red to indicate a water temperature fluctuation over 5°C or a fault.

SV SmartLINK WiFi module (optional)

Control your spa remotely from anywhere in the world! With the optional SmartLINK wifi/bluetooth control unit, just download the SpaLINK phone app (Android or Apple) and you can control all your spa functions simply and remotely. Also included is the SV HiFi which allows you to stream your favourite music from any bluetooth equipped smart device.

SmartSTREAM Sound System (optional)

Set the mood instantly with a fully integrated and totally invisible, state of the art transducer speaker system. Nothing but sweet tunes and zero maintenance. Invisible speakers are matched with a powerful sub-woofer that lets you become fully immersed within the music that matches your hydrotherapy mood.

Energy Efficiency

Consumption at rest
Consumption in use

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. The Vortex Cerium 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.

The Vortex Cerium however, has 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. The Vortex Cerium uses a high density foam insert which is also heat shrink sealed to prevent water ingress, prolonging the cover's life.

Insulated Base

The insulated base works in tandem with the perimeter insulation to ensure the cold is kept out and heating costs are reduced.

Perimeter Insulation

There are several ways to insulate a spa. Vortex 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 - optional, included in Avanté

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 Vortex’s standard perimeter insulation.

Arctic Insulation*

Vortex Spa’s optional Arctic pack insulation is the ultimate level of insulation available. It increasing the thickness of the perimeter insulation to 50mm gives unsurpassed heat retention and the lowest possible running costs.

This system is extensively used on Vortex Spas sold in very cold regions such as Scandinavia and Canada.

*optional on all Vortex spas

Water Cleaning

Ease of Use
Water Cleaning Technologies
maintenance cost
UV Sterilizer - optional, included in Avanté

Using the power of ultra-violet light, the Water Sterilizer kills 99.9% of virus and bacteria. Giving you the safest possible spa pool water.

Ozone Water Clarifier 

The Water Clarifier uses ozone technology to oxidize and destroy organic material 24/7.  It helps keep water clear and clean and keeps operating costs to a minimum. 

Purezone Filtration

This filtration system is unique to Vortex. At its core is a 5 micron disposable filter cartridge. This is the same membrane used in many drinking water filtration systems.

Build Quality

Shell construction
Thermobond shell construction

Vortex 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.

Flexible PVC Plumbing

In order to eliminate the chance of kinks in the plumbing and to prolong life, Vortex 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, Vortex Spas Duraflex plumbing is specifically designed for hot, chemically treated water and carries a 5 year no leak guarantee.

Timber-free frame - optional, included in Avanté

Vortex’s Permaframe construction is a timber-free framing system that is impervious to rot, mildew or vermin damage. Produced used high impact, injection molded plastic, it is designed to last indefinitely.

Vermin Proof Base

Vermin, snakes and rodents love the underside of spas as it is warm and dry. To repel unwanted visitors, the Spectrum Hydroplus features a sealed, Vermin proof base and cabinet design.
