Sundance® Spas Full-Foam Insulation
Energy efficiency is built directly into our hot tubs’ shells:
- We use two types of foam to provide full foam insulation. Completely filling the compartment between the shell and the skirt, and helping to maintain water temperature.
- The equipment bay is surrounded by high-density, heat-resistant foam. Elsewhere, the lighter foam provides insulation.
- Our Rigid Bond™ hot tub shells, combined with our excellent insulation system, provide superior performance, durability, and energy efficiency.

Sundance® Spas EcoWrap®
EcoWrap® is an optional, factory-installed insulation available on Sundance® Spas 780™ and 880™ Series hot tubs. Ideal for cold climates, it helps winterize your spa and reduce your operating costs.
Seasonal Use for Sundance® Spas
Winter is hot tub season. Don’t even think about letting your spa “hibernate”. With just a little preparation, you can use it year-round.
- Before the winter begins, drain, thoroughly clean, and refill your spa before the temperatures get too cold.
- Minimize your exposure to the elements by making sure it is easy to get into and out of your spa via convenient steps. Stock up on fluffy robes and towels near your spa.
- Ensure your hot tub cover is in good condition to maintain heat, and invest in a new one if you have doubts.
- Keep up on water and filter maintenance. Dirty filters reduce water circulation and make the pump work harder, reducing energy efficiency.
Sunny days, backyard barbecues, and plenty of family time. These are just a few things people look forward to in the summer months. As a Sundance® Spas owner, you can add plenty of hot tub time to that list. Here are some tips for the summer use of your hot tub installation.
- Prepare your hot tub for heavy use by giving it a good clean. You can keep it clean by checking for blockages and damage to any part. You should always do your best to make sure these are fixed before using the spa.
- Clean and condition your hot tub cover to ensure it is protected from the elements.
- Refill your spa and use test strips to get your chemical balance just right.
- Fire up the jets and test each seat to make sure all jets are working.
- Lower the temperature. Try turning the temperature down to 95°F or 85°F for summer use. Like a small pool that takes less energy to heat. You can use your tub as a cool-down zone as well.
