The JetPak System and Full Foam Insulation Combine to Make Bullfrog Spas Incredibly Energy Efficient

These days most people just can’t afford to waste money. So, it’s important to know that your hot tub doesn’t have a direct debit line to your bank account. Many hot tubs out there claim to be energy efficient but may cost you hundreds of dollars per month on your electricity bill – a Bullfrog Spa probably costs less than $20.

Of course, costs vary depending on the climate where you live, energy rates, and how often you use your hot tub. One thing is certain though, a Bullfrog Spa is extremely energy efficient, which will cost you less money in the long run, all the while providing better massages, true customization, American-made quality and extreme efficient hot tub

Why are Bullfrog Spas more energy efficient?

Well, it all comes down to the fact that Bullfrog Spas are built differently than every other spa out there. Bullfrog Spas are the only hot tubs built with the patented JetPak System. JetPak Technology provides a more advanced and more efficient way to build a hot tub. The JetPak System eliminates up to 90% of the plumbing that is required to build all other spas. In addition, almost all of the plumbing utilized in the JetPak System resides inside the spa’s warm water so it recycles heat instead of losing it to the outside environment. Bullfrog combines the JetPak System with high-grade full foam insulation and insulated tight fitting hot tub covers to achieve maximum heat retention.

The result: A Bullfrog Spa holds heat better and requires far less electricity to maintain warm water. This makes Bullfrog Spas the most energy efficient hot tubs on the planet!

In energy efficiency stats compiled by the California Energy Commission, Bullfrog Spas either lead or are top 4 (often only behind other Bullfrog Spas models) on the list for every category in which we have a spa model. And, keep in mind, we didn’t make any modifications to our normal production spas for these tests.

    Am interested in a hot tub with an enclosure. Do you also do the installation of the Hottubs and enclosures? If not, can you recommend someone? Would like to get estimates before going for financing.
    Thank for any help you can provide…

    Bullfrog combines the JetPak System with high-grade full foam insulation

    I have a new Bullfrog R5L and don’t see any insulation underneath at all. Where, specifically, is it insulated?

      The entire area underneath the spa shell, minus the equipment compartment area, is actually filled with full foam insulation. Perhaps you’re viewing just the equipment compartment? In addition to the full foam insulation, the heat from the equipment is also used to help heat the spa.

        You are correct sir, equipment compartment…
