Buying a Hot Tub? A Certification From the National Sanitation Foundation is a Must Have for Your New Hot Tub

Buying a hot tub? Have you checked the certifications provided by the National Sanitation Foundation?  It may sound obscure, but it’s your guarantee of  buying a clean, safe hot tub. And, there’s nothing more important than a clean, safe hot tub.

The National Sanitation Foundation International is an independent, not-for profit organization whose purpose is to help consumers Live Safer™ everyday.

Recently the NSF raised the bar in hot tub safety by introducing NSF P181 certification which–for the first time ever–combines health and safety requirements for circulation, filtration, heating and sanitation of spa water with material, design & construction, and performance requirements.

Bottom line? NSF P181 certifies the whole hot tub–not just selected parts like filters for which most hot tub manufacturers have been certified. The National Sanitation Foundation has given this certification to only one brand of hot tub: Hot Spring Spas. Hot Spring® Spas, the number one selling brand of portable hot tubs worldwide, is the first and only hot tub in the industry to be certified by the NSF for meeting a comprehensive set of standards that evaluate the overall safety and performance of an entire hot tub.

It’s no surprise that Hot Spring Spas are the first to meet the strict requirements of NSFP181 certification. Hot Spring Spas have long been known for their high quality and technological innovation. So you can relax with confidence knowing that your hot tub was built with your family’s health and safety in mind.

Olympic Hot Tub Company – THE exclusive Hot Spring dealer in Puget Sound since 1982 – is proud to offer you the reassurance of owning a spa with the NSFP181 mark. Your peace of mind is priceless. The cleanest, safest hot tubs in the industry are found exclusively at Olympic Hot Tub Company. We wouldn’t have it any other way. ” We make it easy to take it easy!™
