FAQs

The Sundance® MicroClean® Ultra Filtration System, available on 980, 880 and 780 Series spas, produces a level of water purity never before found in any spa. And it’s easy to maintain! Incorporating the new micro-filtering disposable filter, our system creates water that is cleaner and clearer than ever before.

The Sundance MicroClean® Ultra filter on 880 Series spas removes large particles, ultra-fine particles and oils from the water. So more filters are not able to give you the maximum water filtration found only on Sundance® spas.

Many manufacturers talk about the horsepower of their pumps. Horsepower can be measured using a “service factor” or a “true rating” system. The first describes the initial thrust as the pump first engages, but immediately the pump output falls to a lower, continuous horsepower level. When a spa manufacturer claims they have a 6-hp pump, they are describing the “initial thrust,” not the horsepower the pump delivers as it runs.

Efficient plumbing, better jets and flow control are more important than horsepower. A lower horsepower pump in a more efficient spa will produce just as much jet power as a higher horsepower pump. And remember, you are looking for a comfortable but strong massage, and not looking for acceleration up a mountain road or a punishing hot water experience!

The heater is the most vulnerable component of any spa. The Sundance Heater employs a titanium coil that directly heats the water, increasing efficiency and reducing costs. Titanium prohibits heater corrosion and nearly eliminates failure. The Sentry Smart™ Heater carries a 5-year unconditional warranty.

Most Sundance spas must be connected to 240V electrical service, but some offer the option of operating on either 120V or 240V. While connecting to 120V can be less involved, most customers prefer the benefits of the 240V spa, which include quicker heating time and better temperature maintenance during cold weather use. This is because the heater output is four times as great in a 240V spa versus a 120V spa. If you choose to connect your spa to 120V service, you must be certain that it is a dedicated circuit, not shared by any other appliance, and has amperage rating appropriate for the spa you select.

A spa can be installed indoors or outdoors, although over 90%, including those in cold weather climates, are installed outdoors. The two main considerations for installing a spa indoors are: will it fit through the door, and is the structural strength of the flooring adequate. A typical 3-person spa weighs approximately 2,500 lbs/1,150 kg when filled.

Here are a few simple rules to keep in mind: A product warranty is a performance and reliability agreement between you and the manufacturer. Avoid spa dealers who add prorated and deductible provisions. Make sure you read the manufacturer’s warranty before buying, and compare coverage with other spas you are considering.

You need to have a proper foundation and meet any electrical requirements. Your Sundance® authorized dealer will walk you through the process and connect you with an expert to install your spa. See what to expect in the video below.

Here are a few things you can do to ensure installation and setup goes smoothly:

  • Check your HOA, city, and county rules and obtain any permits necessary.
  • Decide on a foundation that supports your spa, ensures proper drainage, and looks good.
  • Choose the perfect location, and remember to leave room for maintenance and entertaining.

Quality spas are available in a wide range of prices. Just like cars, spa prices reflect features, materials and workmanship. Of course, we hope that as you are shopping you will consider a Sundance spa. No matter which brand of spa you finally choose, we want you to be an informed consumer and find the right spa for your needs.

You may consider “wet testing” a spa before purchasing. This means getting into a spa with water in it. Many reputable spa dealers maintain filled demonstration models just for this purpose. Here is what you should look for: Verify that the seats provide comfortable support. You do not want to have to scoot down in the spa like you do in a bathtub. When sitting in any seat, the water should reach shoulder level. If it does not, you will not get full hydrotherapeutic value. Stay in the spa with the jets on for at least 15 minutes. At the end of that time you will know whether the seating and jet arrangements are comfortable.

You’ll probably spend more on your daily cup of coffee. Spa costs can differ based on climate, model, and usage, but typical monthly electrical costs are in the $10 to $20 range. Plus, when you buy a spa that uses quality materials and the latest technology, you’ll save on maintenance, energy costs, and the expense of replacing costly salt water hot tub systems in the long run.

The prices shown on this website reflect MSRP, but your local dealer offers different pricing, packages, and promotions based on bulk buys and often pass the savings on to you. Visit your Sundance® dealer for the most current deals.

Industry research shows that more than 76% of owners use their hot tub at least two times per week. Another survey found 98% of Jacuzzi® Brand hot tub owners would recommend purchasing one to their friends and family. Current owners will certainly tell you it’s worth it!

“This was a great buy, my whole family is enjoying it. Soon it will be filled with many friends and neighbors.”

Schedule A Wet Test

The best way to see if this hot tub is right for you is by trying it out for yourself. It's best to experience the relaxing sensation of hydrotherapy before you purchase.
