In 1989, Bullfrog Spas inventor, David Ludlow, wasn’t satisfied with conventional hot tub performance. Leaks, poor jet power, and heat loss prevented hot tub users from enjoying a relaxing, stress-free experience.
Ludlow’s invention, the JetPak Therapy System®, solved all these issues and Bullfrog Spas was born. So, what makes Bullfrog Spas different?
- Interchangeable JetPaks for personalized therapy
- Up to 90% less plumbing to eliminate leaks
- Energy efficiency to keep your energy bill low
- Easy-to-use water care systems
At Bullfrog Spas, we continue to innovate and improve our products so you can enjoy more peace in your life.
