WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?

WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOFTUB & ACRYLIC?

Site Prep

All you need is a level surface-indoors or out. You don’t have to spend extra for construction or a concrete pad.

Electric

A Softub plugs into a regular 3 prong household outlet. We also include a Ground Fault Circuit Interruptor. All you do is plug it in.

Installation

Delivery is quick and easy. American Softub Co. will set up your Softub spa in just minutes!

Portability

You can easily roll a Softub spa through a doorway, down stairs, or across a yard. The heaviest component weighs less than 95 pounds.

Relocate

A Softub spa is easily moved from one location to another, indoors or out.

Heat

For all their power and features, Softub® spas are remarkably simple to operate. In a climate with an average 65°F temperature, the typical Softub spa requires just 4 kw hours of electricity per day to stay 102°F and ready to use. At 8¢ per kw hour, that would be just 32¢ a day, or $9.60 per month.*

Locking Thermal Top

All Softub spas include an insulated locking thermal top to save heat and water and provide safety.

Jet Power

Strategically placed, interchangeable hydrojets provide powerful hydrotherapy.

Safety

A Softub spa, like its name, is soft. It has no hard edges or corners. It’s non-slip surface provides better grip than acrylic surfaces.

Comfort

Softub spas have padded surfaces that are comfortable, cushy and safe.  The low profile design makes it easy to enter and exit.

Seating

Go ahead and stretch out! Spacious, open barrier-free seating allows a variety of positions and activities.

Usage

A Softub is always hot and ready to use – 24 hours a day.

Site Prep

Construction, excavation, or concrete pad are often necessary for permanent location.

Electric

Installation of extra amperage or 220V – 60 Amp line is normally needed. Additional GFCI purchase required.

Installation

Costly crew, placement, plumbing, electrician costs. Crane sometimes necessary.

Portability

Cumbersome. Difficult or impossible to move. Typically 400-900 pounds.

Relocate

Usually not practical due to weight and site preparation.

Heat

Separate heating element is expensive to operate and replace. Monthly operating cost is approx. $45-$80.

Thermal Lid

May be an accessory or extra charge.

Jet Power

Hydrotherapy often uneven due to number and configuration of jets.

Safety

Must use caution with slippery surface and hard corners. Dangerous hidden depths.

Comfort

Hard surfaces provide no cushion or “give” and can be hard on the back and tailbone.  Entry is often difficult stepping onto hard and slippery surfaces.

Seating

Molded plastic assigned seats restrict activity and positioning.

Usage

Pre-heating is often necessary – Up to 2 hours
