Unlike almost every other hot tub on the market, there is no toxic spray foam insulation used underneath our American Whirlpool hot tubs. Instead American Whirlpool uses a removable layer of insulation called BlueMaax, made from a thermally reflective blanked and a layer recycled cotton fibers that have been treated with a non-toxic fire retardant. It’s environmentally friendly and provides the highest efficiency ratings on the market. We now include Copper reflection foil which provides an infrared insulation barrier.
BlueMaax insulation provides ease of access for maintenance so you can see everything under your hot tub. The result is a highly efficient energy-saving system that contains the waste heat from the pump motor(s) inside the cabinet. Most other manufacturers have been using old-school toxic spray foam insulation for years, and still use it today. Why? Because it’s inexpensive and easy to manufacture a hot tub that way. As these hot tubs get older, simple maintenance items like seals that begin to leak, will lead to chiseling away the spray foam and ruining an otherwise functioning hot tub – or paying to have it re-sprayed. Very costly for you and the environment. Go Greener with BlueMaax!
BlueMAAX with Copper is standard on all 100 & 200 American Whirlpool Hot Tubs.
On our 400 & 800 series spas with add an additional layer of 3M Thinsulate.
The triple layering and added Thinsulate from 3M drastically increases heat retention and reduces running costs.
