Everything you've always wanted to know about Softub but haven't had a chance to ask... yet

How long have these spas been around? How long will they last?

We've been manufacturing Softub spas since 1986, and some of our first tubs are still in customers back yards.

What that means to you

You can count on a reliable spa, with a strong company to back it up. There are many Softub spas still in operation after over 20 years of service.

Where are you located?

Mobility 1st Ltd. is the authorized dealer for Softub in Southern Ontario. The manufacturing facility is located in Sudbury, Ontario.

What that means to you

If you ever need accessories, parts, service, or answers no matter where you live we are available nearby.

What are they made of? Are they inflatable?

No, they are not inflatable. They are made of patented Polybond high denisty, closed cell foam that is extremely strong, yet lightweight.

What that means to you

You'll love the flexible comfort and be able to easily move your tub, inside or outside, without any help.

How well does the vinyl surface hold up outside?

The vinyl is a marine-grade product that is designed to withstand the harshest climates and sun.

What that means to you

That means with simple, routine care, you can expect to get many years of service, indoors or out.

How much does it cost to operate?

Softub spas are easy on the pocketbook. The nationwide average cost to operate a Softub spa outside, is between $6 and $10 per month, year round.

What that means to you

That means you won't see a huge jump in your electric bill, as with the 220v hard tubs.

How does it heat without a heater?

With our revolutionary heat recovery system, which uses the heat created by the pump motor to heat the water.

What that means to you

You will have operating costs that are a fraction of the cost of a hard tub, a reduction in service problems, and an extension of the life of the motor, since our system helps keep it cool.

How hot does it get?

Our thermostat can be set as high as 104 degrees Fahrenheit, the same as all hot tubs.

What that means to you

No matter what temperature you select, your Softub is ready for you whenever you're ready to relax.

How do you treat the water?

We have water treatment kits that fully explain the treatment process. To make maintenance as simple as possible, we also have a patented, fully automatic, ozone injection system that significantly reduces the amount of chemicals needed to keep your tub clean and sanitary.

What that means to you

That means it takes less time-and less money out of your pocket to keep your tub sparkling clean.

How much do they weigh when full of water?

A 220 gallon Softub spa weighs 1,972 pounds, including the HydroMate and lid.

What that means to you

You can put your tub on nearly any deck. Check with your builder, but most new decks can easily support a Softub spa and a few of your friends.

What kind of preparation is required to install a Softub spa?

The great news is that all you need is a level surface and a standard 120V 15A electric outlet.

What that means to you

Unlike hard tubs, you will not be burdened with pouring a concrete pad, expensive 220V wiring and possibly a crane.

Will I need an electrician or plumber to hook it up?


What that means to you

Although almost all hard tubs do require expensive electrical work to install, a Softub spa is designed for anyone to install on their own, as it plugs into a standard 115V 15A outlet. And, with our SmartChip, you never have to worry about power surges or brown-outs damaging your spa.
