Caldera and Cal Spas Saltwater Hot Tubs

Caldera Spas offers a wide range of saltwater hot tubs that can be customized to create the hot tub of your dreams. The entire lineup of Paradise and luxury Utopia spas come equipped and ready to use Caldera’s FreshWater Salt System. These hot tubs seat anywhere from 3 to 8 adults, and each spa boasts a variety of seating options with numerous powerful jets for a soothing hydrotherapy experience.

Caldera’s salt system works by using a disposable titanium cartridge to create chlorine from salt, which is then released into the water. This means less work and worry for you! Caldera’s FreshWater Salt System extends water life by reducing chemical usage, saving you both time and money.

All Cal Spas hot tubs (excluding Patio Series and Swim Spas, aside from the F-1325) can be outfitted with Cal Spas’ salt filtration system known as Cal Salt. This innovative system makes water care easier than ever by generating natural chlorine and dramatically reducing chemical use. Please note, Cal Salt cannot be retrofitted, so you may opt to special order your Cal Salt spa or choose one of our Cal Salt-ready models currently in stock.

Why Choose a Saltwater Hot Tub?

Saltwater hot tubs are perfect for homeowners who want to enjoy a gentle hot tub experience! A salt water spa combines the luxuriously soft water of salt systems with the relaxing, soothing comfort of hot water.

A hot tub salt water system is more cost-effective and will require less maintenance than a traditional hot tub, so you can anticipate spending less time monitoring chemical levels and more time enjoying all the amazing benefits your hot tub has to offer.

5 Ways Saltwater Hot Tubs Ensure a Relaxing, Healthy Soak

1. Convenience and Fewer Chemicals

With a salt water spa, you will have fewer bottled chemicals to buy, measure, pour, and worry about. Gone are the days of the weekly water check-ups to make sure your spa chemicals are completely balanced. This is because after the initial setup of a saltwater hot tub, the saltwater system essentially takes care of itself, constantly producing clean, pure water on its own. Plus, it’s extremely easy to use because the spa is already set up and ready to run. With Caldera’s FreshWater Salt System, simply press a button on the panel and your spa will automatically start releasing salt into the water. When you spend less time maintaining your spa, you have more time to enjoy the benefits!

2. Odorless

It’s no secret that unfortunately, chlorine tends to have a bit of a smell. The odor is caused by the chemical residue in the hot tub water. Since saltwater mostly eliminates the use of chemicals, it also greatly reduces the associated odors!

3. Fewer Drainings

Unlike traditional hot tubs that need to be drained every 3 months, a saltwater hot tub only needs to be drained once a year. This translates to savings of time, money, and water! Therefore, you can feel great about knowing you are preserving water and your utility bills will thank you, too.

4. Softer Water and Healthier Skin

One of the disadvantages of heavily chlorinated hot tubs is the drying effect they can have on your skin. Salt water, however, has a softening effect on your skin. Also, sensitive eyes and skin can easily become irritated when soaking in chlorinated water. Since chlorine is naturally generated in saltwater hot tubs, chloramines are less likely to build up, keeping your eyes and skin safe from irritation so you can fully enjoy relaxing in the hot water.

Another perk of a saltwater hot tub is that salt in the water acts as a gentle exfoliant. This helps to remove dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface to reveal smoother and healthier looking skin. Salt can also help to clean pores, balance oil production, and decrease bacteria that cause acne.

5. Enhanced Hydrotherapy

A soak in your salt hot tub has all the same benefits of a regular freshwater hot tub, with an added bonus: salt water actually helps extract extra fluid from your skin, which helps with swollen joints and inflammation. People who suffer from arthritis can experience greater relief in a salt water hot tub. Plus, salt water is extra buoyant!

Ready to Enjoy the Luxury of a Saltwater Spa?

In addition to softer water, a salt system also requires fewer drainings. With a properly maintained salt system, draining and refilling your spa is only necessary once a year (as opposed to the typical 3-4 times per year). And because saltwater drastically reduces chemical usage, there is no odor that can be known to linger with certain chemicals. Plus, your skin will thank you as it stays soft from the salt water and experiences less irritation from chemicals.

As you’ve likely gathered by now, there’s no shortage of benefits when it comes to a salt water spa. But don’t just take our word for it. Come experience the benefits of a saltwater hot tub for yourself at the Recreation Unlimited Noblesville showroom where you can take a hot tub for a “test drive”. You’ll be able to actually feel the difference between a saltwater hot tub vs. a traditional chlorine hot tub!
