Crystec Diamond CAST shell – Moulding Mastery
Mastering the artistry of an aesthetically beautiful and truly hard standing acrylic shell.
Crystec Spas work in partnership with one of the world's leading manufactures to fulfil their acrylic sheeting requirements. A manufacturer widely considered the number one producer od acrylic sheeting worldwide. A trusted company that uses continuous cast, cross-linked acrylic sheeting.
After production, every acrylic mould is layered with a bonding agent to provide additional strength, impact absorption and durability as well as prevent potential uplifting and blistering of the shell. For added protection, every Diamond Cast shell utilises antimicrobial protection which penetrates and disrupts the key cell functions of micro-organisms, inhibiting bacteria growth and maintaining a clean, bacteria free, bathing environment.
Before completion, every shell is sprayed with a highly resilient resin reinforcement to further increase flexibility and tensile strength. This process ensures longevity and noise transfer reduction as well as reducing running costs by acting as a reliable heat retention barrier.
Every Crystec Spas shell is backed with a 10 year* no leak structural warranty alongside a 10 year* shell surface warranty for complete peace of mind.
ForTec – Non Rot Framework
Crystec Spas has created ForTec. An optimal strength, non rot framework for every spa that provides increased durability and ultimately, greater structural integrity to their complete portfolio of product.
ForTec is the ultimate framework that will never rot, warp, split, crack or corrode, extending the life of your investment long into the future.
ProTec - Moulded Floor Protection
The unsung hero of any spa providing an essential function to the build, performance, and longevity of your investment.
ProTec moulded floors are precision manufactured and specifically designed in conjunction with the shell, framework, cabinet, and insulation to form, on completion, a ‘made to measure’ seal and lock tight unit.
Formed with pre-moulded lift site locators and run-away water channel outlets to aid site installation and relocation as well as a protective outer membrane to minimise future contact damage. Careful consideration coupled with progressive advancements are built into every ProTec moulded base.
ThermoTec Insulation – 3 Core HeatLock Process
As the financial cost and environmental impact of energy overuse increases so too does the personal and global desire to explore innovative ways of reducing energy consumption wherever possible. Crystec support this movement and to maximise product efficiency have created ThermoTec, an improved insulation solution.
With its unique HeatLock process, ThermoTec reduces power consumption by retaining maximum heat within the cavity of the spa creating a more positive outcome both environmentally and economically.
High performance, rubber matting with a 20mm density is used as barrier insulation across the base and between the framework of every spa. Reflective insulation wrap is then layered over this and across every spa side panel to ensure that heat generated from the pumps is reflected by the foil to the inside of the shell, heating the spa cabinet and water with minimal heat leakage.
DuraTec – Clever Cabinets
DuraTec cabinets and corner panels provide excellent durability with added resistance to scuff, scratch, abrasion, UV and chemical damage.
Thanks to the revolutionary manufacture and design of DuraTec cabinets, a flush fit and finish is achieved with no visible fasteners or trim components. Using the best quality materials and textured finishes alongside modern contemporary colours ensures that a Crystec Spa always maintains a distinctly luxurious look and feel.
Crystec Double Energy Saving Filtration
What could be better than one high performance, energy saving filter in your spa - surely two! Maximising the cleaning capacity and ensuring the healthiest bathing environment, every Crystec spa includes a double filtration system, powered by a separate, energy efficient and silent circulation pump. Filtering 100% of the bathing water more economically, the filters are housed discreetly, run silently and provide maximum efficiency.
Crystec Ozone – Sensible Sanitation
All Crystec Spas include Ozone which works hard to kill pathogenic bacteria, germs and micro-organisms ensuring the safest, cleanest bathing water. Ozone reduces the amount of chemicals required for optimum sanitisation contributing to a reduced ongoing chemical spend.
Crystec Sweeper Jet – Self Cleaning Spa
Whilst the double energy saving filtration system is more than adequate in filtrating the bathing water and removing unwanted debris, an ongoing issue has always been small or heavy micro-particles that often escape the pull of the filtration and sink to the basin of the spa. The sweeper jet is a clever design that sits discretely at the bottom of the spa releasing a steady jetstream of water across the basin forcing loose particles back up into the bathing water and directly into the pull of the filtration system. Self cleaning perfection.
Crystec Diamond Cut Jets
Modern, matt textured jets with stainless steel detailing, precision engineered using the highest quality materials. Using a combination of rotary, directional and pulsating jet mechanisms each seat formation is carefully designed to deliver a unique massage sensation. Every jet can be individually controlled to adjust the water flow and direction with an easy rotate to off option ensuring you achieve the perfect massage experience.
AuroraTec LED Light System
Therapeutically, colour and light combinations are a proven method for soothing the senses and lifting the spirit. Enhance this therapy with warm waters to lift a tired mind and relax aching muscles even further. Leave your troubles behind and truly unwind.
Crystec Spas champion these therapeutic benefits and so include, on every spa: a large, 7 colour changing LED bottom light to fully illuminate the bathing water. 8 perimeter lights, 4 external lights, and illuminated water feature and topside controls.
AuroraTec LED ULTRA Light System
AuroraTec LED ULTRA – Available as an upgrade is the AuroraTec LED ULTRA lighting package. This will increase the lights package to up to 80 illuminated pieces with backlit cup holders, exterior panel, and corner lights and backlit 3” and 5” water jets.

A simple BLUETOOTH connection to any smartphone device and you will experience superior sound quality that will please even the most demanding user.
AudioTec PowerPro – Bluetooth System
Elevate the listening experience with AudioTec Power Pro. This upgrade includes a 115 watt subwoofer inside the main frame of the spa. Fully appreciate the clarity of bass tones, bump up the volume without distortion and never miss a beat.

What are the benefits of having a Hot Tub? +
Relief: Hot water in general helps relax your body. This can also alleviate aches and pains associated with athletic injuries like muscle pulls or even arthritis. Hydrotherapy involves the use of water for soothing pains and treating diseases. Hydrotherapy is used to treat musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, or spinal cord injuries and in patients suffering burns, spasticity, stroke or paralysis. If you’re in pain and it’s not a broken bone, a good soak will probably help you feel better.
Escape: All this relaxing and warmth isn’t just good for you literally, but also good for you figuratively. Sitting in warm water and feeling the benefits can greatly reduce your stress. There are numerous benefits to be had from reducing and managing stress, beginning with an increase in concentration, a decrease in anxiety, and a reduction in pain. Effectively managing stress often leads to improved health.
Family Time: A Hot Tub at home can help to find an excuse to take a break from the every day chaos going on in your daily routine and help you to make time to create a space for the whole family to reconnect. When was the last time you talked properly with your partner or gave up your time for your kids who are quickly turning into young adults?There are many other benefits linked to owning and using a Hot tub including cardiovascular health, sleep, blood pressure, diabetes, weight loss and anxiety to name but a few.

Leave 5m of 3-core 6ml SY silver cable which should be connected into the isolator with the Hot Tub end locked off ready for the installation team to connect.
What access do you need to fit my tub? +
A hot tub is usually delivered on its side on a special slider which can be steered at both ends. As it is on its side on the slider, the hot tub’s height then becomes its width, and its width (or length) then becomes its height. You must also consider the thickness of the hot tub’s packaging. We insist on a minimum extra height and width of 0.3m to safely complete the installation.
You need to plan the hot tub’s journey from the street through to the rear of the property to its location, so you therefore need to consider the following: Are there any overhanging eaves, flues or branches that would interfere with the hot tub’s height on the slider? Is the access wide enough throughout the route? If not, can any fence sections or gate posts be removed? Is the ground solid all the way, or are there areas of cultivated soil, delicate lawn or gravel which need protecting? Are you on good terms with your neighbours and, if so, might an easier route be to come via a neighbour’s property and remove a fence panel?Pay attention to very restricted and tight alleys, and sharp corners, as you will not be able to bend the hot tub to get around them! Turning angles should allow for the full length of the Hot Tub. Steps can be negotiated, and we generally operate safely to a restricted assent of 0.5m and descent of 1.0m providing there is enough distance available for ramps to be placed.
Do I need any particular surface for my Hot Tub? +
All hot tubs require a firm, level base which is capable of supporting the weight of the hot tub, the water and the bathers without any movement at all. Hot tubs are very heavy pieces of equipment – typical floor loadings of a hot tub full of water and bathers are in excess of 2.5 tonnes.
The most common form of foundation is a 4” (100mm) deep reinforced concrete pad, which is formed using timber shuttering and levelled off smooth and level, so that the hot tub cannot rock on any high or low points and built to an area at least the size of the hot tub’s published footprint. It is also possible to install on an existing patio, as long the patio’s foundations are strong enough to take the weight, and the slabs on top are smooth and level. Also, bear in mind that the surface needs to be level.
A hot tub can also be installed on decking, as long as the sub-structure is strong enough to take the weight. The other thing to bear in mind when considering putting a hot tub on decking is that timber is naturally resonant and can transmit and amplify any vibration from the hot tub during its operation and filtering modes. Many hot tub owners opt for the concrete pad solution, then simply deck up to the edges or around it but consider access if you ever need an engineer.
If you are considering installing a hot tub in any kind of raised position, i.e. a balcony, roof, or terrace, it is vital to call upon the services of a qualified structural engineer or architect who can provide calculations to ensure that the hot tub has the minimum level of structural support underneath it. Under no circumstances go ahead and install a hot tub in such a position without doing this first.Style Spas will not be held liable for an installation on a surface that is not structurally sound, and it remains the responsibility of the customers to ensure adequate health and safety assessments have been completed by qualified professionals when installing on raised structures. Your warranty will be void.
How long will my delivery take? +
Can I customise my Hot Tub? +
At Crystec Spas, we pride ourselves on offering many additional features on our Hot Tubs as standard however, if you have specific requirements that are not already included on your Tub of choice, please speak to one our friendly staff who will be able to discuss your requirements with you. We also have a huge range of customised upgrades which can be chosen when you place your order. For further details please check out our factory fitted extras.Please be advised that customised Hot Tubs may incur a slightly longer wait for delivery however we assure you that this will be worthwhile in ensuring that you have your dream spa just the way you want it.
Is it difficult to maintain a clean Hot Tub? +
Crystec Spa Hot Tubs are complimented with a state-of-the-art filtration system that makes keeping crystal clear water easy. Follow the simple maintenance steps included in your owner’s manual and check out our chemical guidance download to properly test the chemical levels in your Hot Tub and understand your daily, weekly and monthly best practice.We highly recommend you allow our professional team to do the hard work by subscribing to one of our excellent value care packages. These are reasonably priced to ensure you get some great discounts for the chemicals you need and professional servicing by our highly trained staff to ensure continued enjoyment for many years to come.
Does a hot tub need to be drained and refilled before each use? +
No. Drainage and refilling are typically done every three to four months depending on the number of soakers, frequency of use and proper water treatment. Ensuring that you are following our advice before entering the pool and regularly cleaning your filters will reduce the period of time in which your water requires changing.
If foam is appearing on the top of your Hot Tubs water is usually caused by remnants of detergents left in bathing costumes after they have been washed. If possible, it is always a good idea to encourage hot tub bathers to shower with their costumes on before using the hot tub. This will not only help to remove detergents but will also remove cosmetics and lotions from the body.You can read more about how to stop foam and the products that we have available if you are suffering from foam related issues in our maintenance section.
