We focus on quality. From the initial design and construction process, through to every individual swim spa leaving our factory. This focus allows us to confidently stand behind every swim spa we make. Our warranties are the envy of the spa industry.
Structural shell warranty
Unbelievably, most spa pool structural warranties are pro-rata. This means they reduce in value as the spa ages. Leading to hefty costs if your spa's shell structure fails in the latter part of it's warranty.
Vortex Spa's structural warranty is non pro-rata. So if your swim spa's shell structure fails anytime within the 10 year warranty, we replace it. No questions asked.
Acrylic surface warranty
All Vortex swim spa's are offered with a 5 year 'non pro-rata acrylic surface warranty. Our high quality acrylic surface warranty guarantees against any surface blisters that result in water loss for five years.
Whilst it is possible to produce the spa's jets and other plastic components using a quantity of reused plastics, it is difficult to guarantee their fundamental quality.
Vortex Spa jets are produced using the highest grade 'virgin' plastics. This ensures the longest possible life span. This is why we can give you an industry leading, 5 year jet replacement warranty.
Plumbing & heater warranty
The plumbing system of all Vortex swim spas is warranted against leaking for 5 years.
The heater is also warranted against defects for a period of 5 years.
Pump & equipment warranty
The circulation pump, jet pump(s) and electronic control system of all Vortex swim spas are warranted against defects for 2 years.

We believe a spa should fit your budget, not take ALL your budget. That is why we have designed your Vortex swim spa to operate efficiently and effectively with minimal heating and cleaning costs
The Vortex temperature control system
Insulation for Canada
All Vortex spas delivered to Canada feature Dual Layer insulation that's designed to minimise heat loss.
High density foam cover
Every Vortex Spa comes with a custom fitted, high density foam locking cover.
Heat rises, so it makes sense to get the very best insulation on the top of your spa. Your Vortex high density foam cover locks onto your spa. This seals the heat in along with the added safety of keeping the kids out!
Built to withstand 80kgs of weight and made from ultra UV resistant vinyl and high density foam. When looked after it will give you years of exceptional service.
The Vortex perimeter insulation system has two features that make it superior to the traditional ‘foam on shell’ spa insulation system.
First, by insulating the cabinet instead of the shell, Vortex spas recycles lost heat from the pumps and equipment, it also insulates the plumbing that would otherwise lose heat to the environment. This results in less overall heat loss and therefore, lower running costs.
And secondly, by placing the insulation between the spa's pumps and you, you'll enjoy a quieter, more tranquil and restful spa experience.
The Vortex Arctic pack increases the perimeter insulation to 50mm. This system offers the ultimate level of insulation and is extensively used on Vortex Spas sold in regions with extreme climates such Scandinavia and Canada.
Dual layer insulation
The Vortex dual layer insulation covers both the outer cabinet and the shell. This is the most efficient way to insulate. It traps air and uses the same principles as those utilised by modern double glazed windows.
Vortex dual layer system keeps the heat from the pumps and plumbing, reduces noise and provides a warm layer between the water and the outside of the spa. Adding the optional dual layer insulation adds a higher level of heat retention than the standard Perimeter insulation.
Crystal clear water
The Purezone clean water system
Purezone UV Water Purifier
The UV technology found in the Purezone system is not new. In fact you will find it purifying drinking water and public swimming pools all around the world. However, Vortex have pioneered it's use in spa pools.
UV sterilization kills 99.9% of water borne viruses and bacteria, including the hard to reach Giardia and Cryptosporidium viruses. For this reason, it is now mandatory on public swimming pools in many states in the US.
“There is a lot of data, information and science behind UV. The most exciting thing is it's ability to inactivate cryptosporidium.
UV can stop cryptosporidium almost immediately. In fact, UV has the same effect on Giardia, a protozoan parasite responsible for another recreational water illness called giardiasis.”
Tom Lachocki, PhD, CEO of the US national Swimming Pool Foundation.
Through it's sterilizing effect, Vortex's Purezone Spa Pool UV steriliser will not only make your swim spa safe for you and your family, but also reduce your use of chemical sanitisers.
Twin Laminar Jets
Tranquil and beautiful. The laminar jets smooth and uninterrupted flow of water is both relaxing and mesmerising. It's also a 'splash-free' feature.
Vortex Spas innovative technologies
High density foam cover
Protecting your spa starts from the top. That's why we hand make your custom spa cover from weather defending high quality UV vinyl.
It's lockable and can withstand 40kgs of weight in case of snow or someone small decides to climb on it.
Isn't is nice to know that your Vortex Spa is made out of the best acrylic available. Our acrylic is made in the USA by Aristech.
Rest easy knowing your spa's acrylic is manufactured to handle the weather extremes.
Thermabond 4 layer shell construction
At the heart of any quality spa is a quality spa shell. After all, whilst pumps and other equipment can be replaced, the spas shell cannot.
For this reason, Vortex Spas use a 4 layer, 8 step Thermabond lamination process not found in most spas. This process includes the curing of the shell in a temperature and humidity controlled oven. This is absolutely vital if the shell of the spa is to last the lifetime of ownership.
Because Thermoclad is produced using a UV resistant polymer, with the exception of a regular hose down, Thermoclad requires no maintenance. Contrast this to natural timbers which must be stained on a regular basis, Thermoclad is a great time saving alternative.
Due to the hot, damp environment that occurs around a spa, even the hardiest of timbers will be susceptible to mold and mildew. As a synthetic material, this will not be the case with your Thermoclad cabinet.
Hydroflow bearing-less jets
Vortex Spas come with a 5 year jet warranty. Our Hydroflow jets last and last because our they have no bearings to fail. This makes them extremely reliable even under heavy use.
Nobody wants a leaking spa! Vortex spas are plumbed using Duraflex flexible PVC plumbing, which is specially designed for use in high performance spas.
Duraflex incorporates a coil of rigid PVC within it's walls that allows the piping to flex but not kink. This ensures equal pressure to every jet whilst avoiding rigid right angle joints that can reduce hydrotherapy pressure.
Tough steel framework
All Vortex swim spa frames use top quality, durable steel. This is because a steel structure retains its integrity and requires minimal on-going maintenance.
Wooden batons are strategically placed within the framework to assis where fastening is required.
Your Toughbase is built strong enough to take the weight of the spa, water and people. It prevents vermin from getting inside the workings of your spa and is virtually indestructible to ensure years of trouble free usage.
Vortex Spas Hydroglow lighting system has become the envy of all others. Our innovative use of LED has changed the way spa pools are being lit. Now, thanks to Hydroglow it's very easy to have your spas light match your colourful personality.
Jet pressure controllers
Conveniently located to be adjusted while in your swim spa. Our jet pressure controllers allow you to ‘dial up’ your desired jet intensity so you can maximise relaxation and hydrotherapy.
