EXPLORE HIGHLIFE

OUR JET PHILOSOPHY

We design spas based on how you will actually use them. The ComfortControl® system lets you customize the strength of massage. The SmartJet® system allows you to direct power to the jets you are using, instead of powering all the jets at once.

THE PERFECT MASSAGE

Highlife® Collection spas feature up to 7 different jets, offering different types of massage for various parts of the body:

  • Every Highlife Collection spa features the Moto-Massage® DX jet that provides two powerful streams of water that sweep up and down the length of your back – there is nothing else like it
  • The Rotary Hydromassage jet performs like the fingers of a professional masseuse, with rotating nozzles that soothe your back, neck, calves and wrists
  • Precision® jets work together in a powerful cluster to relieve tension in your back, neck and calves
  • HydroStream® jets soothe tired muscles with constant streams of flowing water that relieve tension
  • Directional Hydromassage jets provide targeted relief to problem areas with easy-to-adjust nozzles

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Highlife® Collection spas offer our very best in efficiency and energy saving design – which is why we call these models Super Energy Efficient. This is just one of the ways a Highlife Collection spa delivers the best value over time.

SAVING YOU MONEY

Highlife Collection models feature our complete Energy Smart® system. Every aspect of the spa has been optimized to create heat efficiently and maximize heat retention.

  • Totally insulated with multiple layers of foam to lock in heat
  • SilentFlo 5000® circulation pump that uses less energy than a 40 watt light bulb
  • Custom-designed spa covers with an exclusive hinge seal to lock in heat
  • Our No-Fault® heater that maximizes heat transfer and is covered by an unconditional 5-year warranty
  • A pump shroud captures heat from the equipment compartment and transfers it to the water
  • SmartJet® system lets you direct power only to the jet groups you want to use

CLEANER SPA WATER

Crystal clear spa water is essential to your soaking experience, which is why we have invested in innovations in filtration and water care that keep your Highlife® Collection spa water clean with as little work as possible.

  1. ACE® Salt Water Sanitizing System
    The patented ACE system uses a diamond electrode to automatically generate chlorine sanitizer and other powerful cleaners from salt and water. You’ll spend less time maintaining your spa water, and use fewer bottled products which helps your spa water last longer between changes. This Hot Spring exclusive is an option for all Highlife Collection spa models.
  2. Industry Leading Filtration
    Only Highlife Collection hot tubs offer 100% No Bypass Filtration, and up to 325 square feet of effective filtration area with exclusive, dishwasher-safe Tri-X® filters. The number of filters is matched to the power of the jet pumps to provide balanced filtration, allowing 100% of your spa water to pass through the filters 100% of the time – even when the jets are on, which is when other spas bypass the filters.
