Why MAAX Spas?
MAAX Spas is the industry leader in hydrotherapy, tub design, water control and serviceability. MAAX is a part of Brookfield, now the largest company involved in the manufacturing of spas. The MAAX spa line is the company’s vanguard line; our other spa lines – California Cooperage, Elite, Vita and MAAX PowerPools – all take advantage of MAAX technological innovation.
MAAX spas have a modern, low-slung, profile. The seating angle curves away from the traditional vertical back, so every seat becomes more of a lounger, with more room in the footwell.
This low-profile look is accented by the woody DuraMAAX exterior – which seals in heat but seals out the effects of weather – and our continuous-cast acrylic interiors, which come in a variety of colors and textures.
The lip of a MAAX Spa is wide, curved and strong, making the tub comfortable to rest upon, sit upon and climb over.
Ergonomics & Hydrotherapy:
MAAX Spa Models seat from three to eight people, with a variety of seating combinations: performance lounges, shiatsu pinpoint massage seats, bucket lounges and molded bench seating. Ergonomic molding and the spa’s low profile ensure that you will never feel crowded in a MAAX Spa.
These spas are masterfully molded – and reverse molded. Reverse molding allows the spa to “bump out” over your shoulders or feet to direct jets downward, instead of just straight into the spa or up from the floor. The Comfort Collar and X-Option Collar actually pinpoint massage your shoulders from above the water line, while MAAX’s Foot Relief Zone massages both the tops and the bottoms of your feet.
MAAX’s Performance Seats And Lounges take ergonomic spa engineering to the highest level for total hydrotherapy. Comfort Collars cradle your head while an array of powerful jets provide pinpoint massage accuracy. The molded shape of this seating – designed by the same engineer who modeled the ergonomic seating for the Corvette and F16 Fighter – takes into account the power of the jets, body buoyancy and posture, to ensure that no body type will just “float off” during a MAAX performance massage.
MAAX hydrotherapy is built upon TheraMAAX jet technology. The unique TheraMAAX grill system builds a vortex behind and around the nozzle stream, which moves more water, more efficiently to its destination. TheraMAAX jets come in various sizes, and combined with our tubs’ powerful pumping systems, move more water for more hydrotherapy. MAAX has been an innovator in medical whirlpool design for 40 years: we bring this expertise to your home spa.
MAAX’s water cleaning system starts with the First Filter (an advanced mesh as effective as most other spas’ actual filter), moves water next through the Spa Filter, then sends it to the Clean Zone, our maintenance-free disinfecting ultraviolet plasma cell ozone system. Your water is clean before it even enters the pumps. Our optional additional sanitizer – Clean Zone II – utilizes a UVC/ozone technology used around the world to purify drinking water. MAAX’s Clean Zone II technology significantly reduces the amount of chlorine or bromine sanitizer required in your spa.
MAAX Spas’ 56-frame pumps move more water more efficiently than the 48-frame pumps used by most other manufacturers. MAAX Spas circulate and clean all of the water in your tub 4 to 6 times per hour, eliminating the necessity of running a smaller pump in the background throughout the day.
MAAX Water Control:
The digital marine grade Control Panel manages all aspects of your spa’s water system. Its onboard timers can even be set to clean your spa during specific hours of the day to take advantage of lower daypart electric rates (coming soon to a municipality near you).
MAAX ergonomic air feed and nozzle controls require just the lightest touch: no twisting and turning is ever necessary.
MAAX also has an optional Floating Remote Control for inside the spa and a Wireless Remote Monitor for inside your home. You can control the heat and water flow in your spa from your living room.
MAAX’s exclusive Powerworks with M7 solid state water control technology can sense heat and other water conditions without mechanical switches or through-wall temperature sensors (both of which often require replacement or repair in other spas) – another worry-free technology exclusive to MAAX Spas. Powerworks M7 technology is a standard feature in every spa in the MAAX family.
MAAX Spas are built to last, built to save energy, and built to help the environment.
At the bottom of a MAAX spa is an ABS Sealed Base, a one-piece waterproof foundation that integrates with a Steel Sub-Structure. This zinc-coated structural steel frame – 40% lighter than wood – is the strongest spa support available. It will never rot, warp, split or become infested with insects – all of which can happen with wood spa frames. And it’s warrantied for a lifetime.
Sealing in the steel frame and ABS base is MAAX’s proprietary Thermo-Lock system. Heat reflective insulation directs heat from the spa and motors back into the spa, creating more efficient heating and significant energy savings.
BlueMAAX insulation – a recycled, ecofriendly natural fiber – is the insulating core of a MAAX spa. BlueMAAX replaces traditional urethane insulating foam, which must be clawed out from the spa when the spa is serviced. BlueMAAX is part of the modular Thermo-Lock system, which can be serviced and returned to factory installation specifications right in your backyard by Spa-Warehouse.
The same insulation that makes a MAAX Spa energy efficient also makes it run quietly, inside and out. Sound energy is trapped and deadened inside the spa by the Thermo-Lock insulation system. Quiet operation is key to a peaceful and relaxing spa experience, and the MAAX family of spas is one of the quietest on the market.
A quiet spa is the perfect environment for quality sound in your spa. MAAX offers a Sony Stereo CD option which is satellite ready – you can even plug in your own MP3 player. The Sony Subwoofer is embedded in the spa’s substructure, from which it resonates through the water.
Our spas are quiet, so you can hear the music.
