Why Viskan Spa?
For Swedish conditions
In Sweden, there is a difference of over 50°C between winter and summer. But the cold is not the biggest challenge. It is the moisture and the wind. That’s why we design the hot tub with the following features
Sitting Depth - Deeper than those of its competitors
Bathing outside in winter is perhaps one of the most enjoyable bathing experiences. But you must be able to sit comfortably, leaning backwards with the water over your shoulders - otherwise it becomes cold. And because Scandinavians are somewhat taller, the design and seating depth are extra important. That’s why a Viskan hot tub is a little deeper than the other hot tubs on the market - take a seat and test it yourself.
Unique operating system - Long warm baths, all year round
Balboa Watergroup supplies our control systems. In addition to the fact that we chose to use titanium heaters, to extend the life of the heater, in most of our spas, Balboa has also developed a unique control system for us. That means you can run the massage pumps while the heater heats your bathing water. This is a must in our Nordic climate. If not, the water temperature drops very quickly – no matter what insulation you have on the side of the tub.
The shell - The thickest on the market
The most important part of a spa is the shell. This is indisputable. That is why we chose to invest in the market’s thickest shell, from the best supplier. The shell plate is more than twice as thick as normal, and is made of acrylic and ABS for the best strength and flexibility. The plate is reinforced with several layers of polyurethane (PUR) for maximum strength. This also reduces noise and acts as an extra layer of insulation. It is also much better for the environment than traditional glass fibre reinforcement.
Insulation - Best possible running costs
Viskan’s hot tub provides documented energy efficiency, thanks to several layers of insulation and air barriers, and the way it reuses the heat from the hot tub’s pumps. Another advantage of our insulation is that the spa is very service-friendly and easy to operate. This can save you a fortune in the future. Low energy cost + service-friendliness = best possible running costs.
Clean water - ACS - Cleaner than drinking water
Fresh, clean water is a prerequisite for using and enjoying your hot tub. In order to achieve as high a level of water purity as possible, and with minimal use of various chemical products, we have developed a unique system: the Aqua Clear System. We provide: a unique antibacterial hose; AOP - advanced oxidation process (ozone and UV-C light which, when combined correctly, provides the most powerful, non-chemical, drinking water purification); powerful filters; and an energy-saving, programmable circulation pump.
Quality components - The difference is in the detail
It is the small details, such as seals, o-rings, gaskets and even the silicone and glue that make a big difference. Using the right products for the right purpose is absolutely crucial in terms of the service life of your spa. We use Viton seals for the pumps, as they are about four times better than traditional EPDM seals. Most of our whirlpools utilise a much more secure assembly method for the massage jets. This eliminates the need for silicone and nuts, and does not lead to leakage as a result of poor or obsolete silicone and/or plastic nuts.
Separately programmable circulation pump
We have chosen to use a separately programmable circulation pump in all of our models. It provides a quieter tub with lower energy costs and allows you to control how often the water is filtered - from 4 to 24 hours. Wear is also reduced in the other pumps, as these are only used for water massages.
The cover - Thick and made of high-density plastic
We also have one of the very best covers on the market. As you know, heat rises. Our cover is thick and made of high-density plastic which, unlike most other covers on the market, provides very good insulation after a few years.
