JetPak Therapy System™
Your R Series spa features the patented JetPak Therapy System. This unique and proprietary technology provides you with your choice of up to 16 different massages. R Series spas feature a unique JetPak® of your choice in each premium seat. By selecting your JetPaks and placing them in the spa seats you like, you decide exactly how you want your spa experience to feel.
Premium Integrated Waterfalls
Nothing adds to the ambience of spa relaxation quite like a peaceful and relaxing waterfall. The soothing sounds of falling waters remind us of beautiful tropical cascades, transporting you in seconds to that tranquil place.
Bullfrog Spas is the leader in 100% wood-free spa construction technology. The proprietary and patented EnduraFrame™ spa support structure means your Bullfrog Spa is engineered to last. With no wood to rot or warp and a highly engineered structure that fits together perfectly you can be assured that your spa will be dependable and long-lasting.
Patio Performance™ Cover
In addition to their high-end look, these long-lasting premium spa covers feature an advanced patio fabric, treated to be UV and fade resistant, as well as weather repellant, and they are up to 25% lighter than standard vinyl hot tub covers. Genuine Bullfrog Spas covers are also designed to provide maximum insulation for energy efficiency.
High Density Insulation
Bullfrog Spas’ full foam design insulates the spa completely to prevent heat escape, even in the coldest climates. Bullfrog Spas utilize an ultra energy-efficient foam throughout the interior of the spa structure to lock in more heat. Infrared heat mapping shows the difference that full foam insulation makes. A full foam insulated Bullfrog Spa locks in the heat and very little escapes to the outside air.

Select Step™ by Bullfrog Spas
The premium Select Step features a customizable system that provides maximum safety while adding visual appeal to any backyard setting.
Colors and materials match Bullfrog Spas cabinetry for an integrated design. A strong, rust-resistant aluminum frame with step anchors, recessed traction pads, and surfboard-quality tread provides enhanced stability. And the modular design offers an optional third step upgrade with handrail and backrail options for enhanced safety.
Our Entry Level Convenient DuraStep hot tub steps are color-matched to the spa cabinet and coordinated with the spa cover. These durable, long-lasting steps are easy to install and create safe and easy access to your Bullfrog spa with a non-slip surface and durable composite construction.
Enhanced Ozone System, EOS O3™
EOS™ is a revolutionary water purification system that is up to twice as effective at oxidizing out impurities, without the negative effects of excess ozone gas. This unique 3-part system generates as much as 2 times the amount of ozone as standard systems, sanitizes spa water better, and destructs nearly all residual O3 gas.
FROG® @ease® for Bullfrog Spas®*
The all-new FROG® @ease® for Bullfrog Spas Sanitizing System*, utilizes SmartChlor® technology to provide a self-regulating water care experience that is easier than ever. Enjoy water that is clearer, cleaner, softer, and much easier to maintain than traditional methods. SmartChlor® technology uses up to 75% less chlorine, maintains chlorine at lower levels, and reduces the frequent need for hot tub maintenance.
*FROG @ease available in the USA only. See dealer for details.
Dedicated Filtration Pumps
Your dedicated filtration pump is calibrated for filtration system effectiveness as it circulates all of the water in your spa many times per day. In addition, a dedicated filtration pump operates much more quietly and more efficiently than systems that use a jet pump for filtration.
Natural Mineral Cartridge
The Bullfrog Spas Natural Mineral Cartridge is a simple way to enhance your spa water with the natural benefits of minerals. These long-lasting cartridges are designed to fit inside of the filter cage* on all new Bullfrog Spas. Mineral cartridges are a great option for those that prefer a simple and natural water care solution.
WellSpring™ Ozone Purifier System
The WellSpring High-Output Ozone Purifier features Corona Discharge Electrode Technology that consistently ads ozone while filtering any excess to eliminate corrosiveness. Keep your spa clean and significantly reduce the amount of sanitizing chemicals needed.
