Let's Talk Arctic Spas!

by Chris Wheatley

In general, I like the shell, it’s hand-rolled self-supporting with a vinyl ester resin core. They also have really impressive brochures, advertising, and marketing, unfortunately that is not what I look at here.
The control and heating system are mostly proprietary and here is why I don’t like that option.

The insulation system is about 2″ of closed cell foam nowhere near what the building code would be in a cold climate, I like to see a lot more R-value and a lot less talk about how air gaps contain heat.

I also like to see clamps on the plumbing lines, and the plumbing to be supported, it seriously reduces leaks and that saves you a ton down the road.
