Appliance Grade Construction
The steel structure and Northern Exposure® Insulation in AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tubs allow for complete service of the entire structure and all mechanical parts. Essentially the spa can be serviced and brought back to factory specifications right in your backyard for the lifetime you own it. This is called “Appliance Grade™ ”, since the hot tub is built to the same service and safety standards as many other major home appliances.
The Steel Sub-Structure used in AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tubs has the highest strength to weight ratio of any building material available. The steel frame provides greater structural integrity than wood, as well as superior corrosion protection for a much longer life. Unlike wood, steel is dimensionally stable. It will not expand or contract with moisture, which over time can damage the spa’s exterior. Sturdy and built to last, the inorganic properties will never rot, warp, split or crack and eliminate worries of animal infestation or termite damage. Stronger, more durable, and ideal for the environment – it’s the obvious choice for a lifetime of worry-free fun.
Lifetime Steel Structure Warranty
The steel frame is the backbone and support for the entire spa. The steel structure of your AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tub carries a lifetime warranty. This means for the lifetime of your ownership you can feel secure knowing any component of the structural frame will be replaced or fixed to factory specifications should it become damaged in the operation of the spa.
ABS Sealed Base
The ABS Sealed Base is an integral part of the support structure in an AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tub. Its one-piece construction provides a rugged foundation that seals the bottom of the spa, locking in heat and sealing out moisture.
Conventional foam-filled hot tubs are extremely hard to service and are often damaged in the process. It is very costly to bring these back to factory specifications.
