If you’ve been waiting to buy a hot tub, 2019 is a great time!

The new spas from Hot Spring® in 2019—the Highlife® Collection, the Limelight® Collection, and Hot Spot® Spas —offer new options and improvements while continuing to provide The Absolute Best Hot Tub Ownership Experience®.

This year’s hot tub models feature updated color options that complement your home design. In addition you’ll find more lounging room, improving relaxation.

But the biggest and best change is reflected in water care system improvement. The new, integrated FreshWater™ Salt System ships ready to use on luxury Highlife® Collection and Limelight® Collection spas and, with normal use, provides one year of soft, pure water with a lot less maintenance.

In 2019 take time to take care of you. Worry less about hot tub care because your hot tub practically takes care of itself. Let’s see what’s new from Hot Spring in 2019.

FreshWater Salt System

The FreshWater Salt System makes hot tub care simple.

New Water with the FreshWater™ Salt System

Clean water is essential to a positive hot tub experience. The FreshWater™ Salt System is factory-integrated on Hot Spring Highlife Collection and Limelight Collection spas. The titanium cartridge-based system generates chlorine from salt and automatically releases it into your hot tub water

This removes the hassle of manual sanitizer introduction. The system produces more natural-feeling water that won’t irritate eyes and skin.

Changing the FreshWater™ Salt System every four months takes only seconds.

Maintenance is simple. The control panel prompts you with instructions on reading and adjusting the chlorine output every 10 days. Best of all, you only need to drain and refill your spa water once a year. This is  instead of the three or four times a year traditional sanitizing systems require. Longer water life allows for water conservation, too.

With the Freshwater™ Salt System, you spend less time maintaining your spa water and more time enjoying it.

New Hot Spring Spa Collections for 2019

The new models are more beautiful, comfortable, and easier to care for than ever.

This year, new designer-selected cabinet colors and finishes, as well as a new shell color option, make it simple for hot-tub shoppers to match their spas with their home aesthetic.

Six models in the Highlife Collection feature luxurious lounge seating. The new Triumph™ hot tub includes two loungers. Plus, with the innovative FreshWater™ Salt System, the hot tub is truly always hot and ready for use.

Let’s take a look at 2019 Highlife Collection hot tubs.

Highlife Collection Luxury Features

The 2019 Highlife Collection spas offer better water. The FreshWater™ Salt System creates pure, smooth water with minimal effort.

Plus, Highlife Collection spas feature dishwasher-safe Tri-XⓇ filters. They provide up to 325 square feet of filtration to strain 100% of the water, 100% of the time. While other spas bypass the filters when jets are active, Highlife Collection spas keep working to clean your water.

Highlife Collection spas also feature a better massage experience, courtesy of the powerful Moto-Massage® DX jet. It offers a deluxe, targeted massage.

Moto-Massage® DX

An innovation unique to Hot Spring, the Moto-Massage DX jet produces water streams that move up and down your back. Other jets, including Soothing StreamⓇ, Jet StreamⓇ, and Rotary Hydromassage jets, powered by robust WavemasterⓇ pumps, enhance and complete the versatile, relaxing massage of Highlife Collection spas.

When it comes to energy conservation, Highlife Collection spas shine. The offer top energy efficiency via the Energy SmartⓇsystem. Full foam insulation, applied in multiple layers of varying density, locks in heat entirely. This is the same insulation used in commercial freezers and is the ultimate in hot tub energy efficiency.

Hot Tub Covers

A specially designed cover with a carefully constructed hinge seal keeps the heat from escaping from Highlife Collection spas. A polymeric base pan with structural ribbing insulates the bottom. As an added benefit, spas with polymeric substructures provide exceptional support compared to wood-framed hot tubs. Even the jets are energy-efficient, as the SmartJetⓇ system allows users to direct water flow only to the jets they’re using.

CoolZone System

Of course, all Highlife Collection spas offer the wellness benefits of hot-tubbing. The optional CoolZoneⓇ Hot Tub Cooling System, which is great for athletes and those who live in hot climates, allows for cold and hot water therapy. Simply set it to chill your spa to as low as 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, enjoy a cool soak on the hottest summer days. Heat it back up again for warm evening soaks.


Highlife Collection spas in 2019 continue to offer intuitive, high-tech controls and the optional:

  • Connextion® Remote Monitoring System
  • Beautiful LuminescenceⓇ LED spa lighting
  • An optional wireless entertainment system with extended BluetoothⓇ technology.
