Coast Spas have Cleaner/Clearer Water – Less Chemicals

Hi All,
For your reference I have the Coast Classic series Zenith running in my store, with another manufacturers spa.  All spas are tested daily (Following BISHTA guidelines), for which I keep a record.

What’s become apparent is how clear and polished the water is keeping within the Zenith compared to the American model. Also the Coast is using around half the amount of stabilized chlorine compared to the other spa. The Spas are similar in external size (actually more water volume in the coast due to height) same temperatures at 36 degrees, no bather load and I have disconnected ozone on all running tubs on show.

I put my findings down to the Coast Cyclonic pressurised filtration doing its job! I have to use Spa Sparkle liquid in the non-Coast Spa  to remove regular cloudy / hazy water, never used this product in my Coast spa. Its obvious that the water clarification is being taken care of by Coast Spas commercial grade cyclonic filtration system.

What a selling point! Must be at the top of the list against the rest of competition, as most of the worlds manufactures use exposed filtration.

Well done Coast!

Coast Spas, Winner of Best New Spa Design in Las Vegas

From The Online Newsletter – November 2010
Las Vegas, NV USA
Don Elkington, founder of Coast Spas was at their booth when we stopped by.  Don is an iconoclast in the hot tub industry, having run Coast Spas for almost two decades – and always coming up with ground-breaking designs and features for his spas.  We were privileged to have both he, and Arvilla Schneider , show us many of their new spa models at the trade show.  Coast is the only portable hot tub that offers a ‘negative edge’ -like design.  Their new model with the water overflow and waterfall feature is truly a wonderful combination of technological innovation and beauty.  There is absolutely nothing on the market like these spas.  The strategically placed LED lighting both inside AND outside the spa synchronize to give an effect like a great Pink Floyd concert from the 1970′s!  Elkington reports that Coast never really has gone after the lower-end spa market.  All their models are real, true high-end tubs – from top to bottom.  Don’s forward-thinking vision for Coast has made these tubs popular in Canada, in ‘the states" (as he calls us) and more recently in Europe and parts of the Middle East.  A+ for best new spa design, overall high product quality, as well as having a stunning booth, with a spa light show that can’t be beat.

Coast Spas use TUV and LabTest Certification, Inc. (International compliance) test reports to certify to CE compliances and Intertek (North American compliance) certification test reports to certify to CSA and UL compliances.

Coast Spas TUV Certificate is internationally recognized by IECEE CB scheme (Conformity Testing and Certification of Electromechanical Equipment and Components), which is a national certification in all other countries of the CB scheme. The TUV has a reputation of being strict in their interpretation of standards and this adds to the credibility of our product. This is why TUV carries more clout than other agencies and why some people put greater emphasis on seeing TUV on a product than just seeing CE.

The Intertek testing in North America conforms to strict UL 1563 for Spas, Equipment Assemblies and Associated Equipment and even more aggressive CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 218.1 for Spas, Hot Tubs and Associated Equipment.
