Caldera Spas Introduces New Open Seat Spa


Vacanza® Vanto® rounds out value series line

VISTA, California, August 10, 2011 — The makers of Caldera® Spas, known for Pure Comfort®, Pure Performance® and Pure Style®, are pleased to introduce the Vanto® hot tub to the Vacanza® series. The Vanto, as with the entire Vacanza series, offers a fresh approach to the value-priced category, delivering a distinctly stylish spa experience.

Designed as a non-lounge hot tub, the Vanto is a generous 84″ square, comfortably seating 7 adults. The Vanto features 35 jets, trimmed in a sleek-looking stainless steel – plus the highly functional foot pod with four Euro jets. The continuous duty jet pumps (two, 1.5 hp) supply an impressive power to a mix of AdptaFlo®, AdaptaSsage®, and Euro jets. The jet patterns in each seat provide the signature Caldera Spas Hot Tub Circuit Therapy® option for Pure Performance. This remarkable system provides a balanced workout by directing powerful jets at all of the body’s major muscle groups for a completely satisfying, refreshing full-body massage.

“Adding an open seated, non-lounge spa to the Vacanza line will help our dealers capture more sales from value conscious shoppers,” said Shelly Roberts, Caldera Spas Brand Manager. “Early feedback from our retail partners tells us it’s the right product, introduced at the right time.”

Lighting excitement is created with the use of LED multi-colored, points-of-light on the spa interior. Ten-points of light are strategically placed around the spa, gently illuminating the water. Six are placed just above the waterline, reflecting off the water, creating a visually stunning appearance. The gentle beauty of the Acquarella® waterfall provides a soothing backdrop of sound and color. An optional Integrated MP3 sound system can complete your customer’s entertainment enjoyment.

Water maintenance remains simple and easy. The Vanto comes standard with factory-installed SPA FROG® housing. The SPA FROG water care system continually doses the spa’s water for care-free maintenance and uses up to 50% fewer chemicals than traditional water care. Disposable cartridges with specially-formulated minerals and bromine are housed in an integrated compartment. The optional Monarch CD Ozone system is available.

Three contemporary acrylic shell colors are offered, Champagne Opal, Pearl, and White Sands, finished with a Coastal Grey or Redwood EcoTech® cabinet. Full-foam insulation and a custom spa cover with an installed hinge-seal help ensure the Vanto is CEC-compliant.

The Vanto joins the complete Vacanza “vacation” series including the Palatino®, Marino®, Cima®, Lina®, and Aventine® models which were introduced in late 2009.
