Can Dream Maker Spas help my stress, pain, or other physical conditions? 2015-03-31T14:59:08+00:00

You should consult a medical professional for specific advice. It is well known that hydrotherapy — the combination of heat, massage, and buoyancy — can help relieve stress, pain and other symptoms. Heat dilates blood vessels, increasing blood flow to carry oxygen and nutrients to sore and damaged tissues. Dream Maker Spas jets give your body a massage, relaxing tension from muscles, while the natural buoyancy of water relieves pressure on strained joints and muscles. Immersion in a warm, soothing hot tub before bed helps to transition to a good night’s sleep, and the release of endorphins that may occur during a warm water massage can also relieve stress and improve your mood.

Where should I put my spa? 2017-06-13T20:33:38+00:00

Most Dream Maker Spas are installed outdoors, although they can be installed indoors. To install your spa indoors, you’ll need to consider if it will fit through the door and if the structural strength of the floor is adequate to hold the spa. When filled with water, a typical 3-person spa weighs about 3000 pounds.

What special plumbing is needed for my spa? 2017-06-13T20:33:38+00:00

None. Once your spa is in place, simply fill it with water from a garden hose. An easy access drain valve makes emptying your spa to clean or move it simple and quick.

How much horsepower does my spa pump need? 2017-06-13T20:33:38+00:00

All Dream Maker Spas are operated by a 1.5 (2.0 HPR) horsepower pump. This motor is engineered to provide soothing, relaxing streams of water as often, and for as long, as you want to use your hot tub. Although other spas may use a pump with larger horsepower, this does not guarantee a more comfortable or better spa experience. The pump in your spa should be suitable to properly move air and water through the spa; paying more for a larger pump may be an unnecessary expense.

Do I need special wiring to connect my spa? 2017-06-13T20:33:38+00:00

No. This is one of the most popular features of Dream Maker Spas. Spas from other manufacturers must often be hardwired by a professional to 220 volt electrical service, adding hundreds of dollars to the cost of your spa. Dream Maker Spas are designed to simply plug into your existing, regular 110 volt electrical outlet. They may also be hardwired to 220 volt electrical service, if you prefer. The heater can be converted from a 120-Volt 1kW to 240-Volt 4kW with the installation of a 30 or 50 Amp 240-Volt electrical service, by a certified electrician. When connecting via your regular outlet, don’t share the circuit with any other appliance, and be sure it has an appropriate amperage rating.

How do I keep the water clean? 2015-03-31T14:59:40+00:00

With your spa purchase, we recommend DreamBrite Water Solution, a one-step weekly maintenance product we recommend to keep your water clear and sanitized. DreamBrite will reduce the amount of harsh chemicals you need, protect your spa equipment from biofilm and scale build-up, and has no harsh side effects on your skin and eyes. Properly maintained water is vital to enjoying your spa experience, so be sure to ask your dealer or contact us if you need help.

How often should I clean the spa? 2015-03-31T14:59:46+00:00

With regular use and well-maintained water, we recommend you clean your spa about once every three months. Essentially, this involves draining the water from your spa, brushing the sides and refilling with fresh water from a hose. Consult your owner manual for specific instructions.

How is temperature controlled? 2015-03-31T14:59:51+00:00

Sophisticated digital controls ensure that the water in your spa will be kept within one degree of the temperature you select. This ensures your comfort, and more importantly, your safety, particularly if children will be using the spa.

Are water jets adjustable? 2017-06-13T20:33:38+00:00

Dream Maker Spas include stainless steel jets that are properly located throughout the spa to combine water and air for soothing massage for each person. While some competitors offer jets that are manually adjustable, Dream Maker Spas use patented stationary eyeball and dual port spinner jets for a unique pressure controlled massage. In addition, you control the amount of air being combined with the water to change the feel of the massage. 

How long does my spa need to heat before it’s ready to use? 2015-03-31T15:00:57+00:00

Controls for your Dream Maker Spa allow you to choose whether to keep your spa warm and ready for use at all times, or set it to heat when you’re most likely to use it. Whatever you desire, your spa can be customized to be ready for you when needed.

How long does it take to initially start up my spa? 2015-05-07T14:10:41+00:00

Approximately 24 hours.
