Quality Construction

Our spas are built from the ground up to the highest standards


What does quality construction mean to us?

Our spas are built from the ground up to the highest standards. We start by building our frames using only pressure-treated lumber on top of a full ABS Base. This solid foundation is covered with our beautiful, durable Royalwood cabinets. The space between the maintenance-free cabinet and the structure is filled with insulating foam. This insulation provides the highest quality and most efficient heat retention rating available in any spa, and it also dramatically increases the lifespan of the spa. It makes the whole structure stronger, quieter, and more durable, in addition to protecting the plumbing from unnecessary wear due to vibration.

We top it all off with our durable, hand-sculpted acrylic shell with our lifetime Diamondbond backing. Our jets rotate on bearings rather than plastic for ease of adjustment, and our pillows are a dyed-through, closed-cell foam to prevent cracking, discoloration, and water absorption. We build a spa with the same quality a good house is built – to last!

Superior construction


Spas typically have many different plumbing systems and Tropic Seas incorporates high-performance systems depending on where used within the product. Shur-Grip tubing is a unique PVC helix material designed to be both rigid and flexible to prevent kinking during bends and prevent bursting under pressure/suction. Shur-Grip was specifically designed for the Spa and Pool Industry to be installed with a glued joint only onto the respective fitting/jet.

Other plumbing systems use a high-quality plastic tubing to prevent folding and creasing that can disrupt water flow. These tubes are then both glued and clasped onto the fasteners to prevent leaking or coming loose during transit. All water flow is kept as straight as possible to ensure the best possible water pressure for all jets. These high-flow plumbing systems have little resistance, keeping the water pressure at its highest.


Pressure treatment is a process that forces preservatives into the wood. The preservatives help protect the wood from attack by termites, other insects, and fungal decay. This heavy-duty frame is perfect for extreme outdoor conditions, protecting the wood from wear, elements, and fungus.

ABS ThermoPlastic Base Pan

Our spas can be fitted with a tough, rigid ABS thermoplastic base pan. Completely waterproof and weather resistant, this base protects your spa from the ground up.

Royalwood Cabinetry

From the realistic wood-like texture to the matte finish, it’s no wonder these cabinets are called Royalwood. They feature a tight grain pattern along with subtly varying shades of color. This subtle variance creates a more realistic look and feel of natural wood.

Ergonomic design

When designing our spas, we don’t use the latest 3D modeling software – in fact, we don’t even use a mouse. We use such blunt instruments as chisels, sand blocks, files, and putty knives. Indeed, we take pride in just how primitive our design process is.

We create our molds the old-fashioned way: we sculpt them by hand. The creation of the beautiful, organic forms that grace our spas is far more art than science, and the intimate human contact with our process ensures that our great looks are built for the human form.

Our experts apply ergonomic seating designs, both lounge and chair, to the interior of our spas. Each seat helps maintain an even weight distribution and correct posture when enjoying the powerful massage therapy of the helix jets. The bench seats allow you to swivel to not only massage your back – but your sides and arms too.
