Heats without a Heater
The Softub Hydromate system was designed with heat recovery technology, incorporating the pump, motor, and heating systems into one single unit. Thanks to the clever arrangement of these technical components, a Softub’s water is exclusively heated using the motor’s excess heat. This dramatically cuts operational costs and eliminates the main component that fails in traditional hot tubs – the heater! Softubs also incorporate the intelligent technology of the SmartChip. With the SmartChip, Softub hot tubs maintain the set temperature on the control panel by turning the pump on and off automatically. The built in safety mechanism prevents the tub from overheating if there’s a problem with the temperature sensors as well as prevents the pump from turning on if the temperature is too high. The SmartChip also prevents the pump from turning on if the voltage is too low and could damage the pump.
Because it can be plugged into any standard 120V, 15-amp outlet and in light of the design of the Hydromate system, the Softub is the most energy-efficient hot tub available, gallon for gallon. The sealed, high-density insulated cover keeps the heat from escaping when the tub is not in use. A Softub spa can be kept at 104 degrees and be used for 20 minutes every day for an average cost of less than $12 per month!
For the past 25 years, Softub hot tubs have been manufactured in a green facility without the release of harmful VOC* chemicals. Softub was green before it was fashionable.
