What is the Aquarest Spa?

The Aquarest Spa is an easy-to-use hot tub that doesn’t skimp on the bells and whistles—even those not usually seen in hot tubs that retail for under $10,000. A stone facade mimics natural hot springs, offering an organic look. Snag it in three neutral colors: graystone, brownstone and keystone look pretty sitting on a porch or patio.

An ozone water purification system keeps bacteria at bay, cutting out nearly 75% of the chemicals normally seen in home jacuzzis. It’s the perfect choice for families. All you need is an outdoor privacy screen or patio shade sail, and your personal backyard spa awaits. Enhance your experience with these backyard hot tub privacy ideas.

Sit back and relax in one of four captain’s seats, equipped with ample lumbar arch support and personal jets that soothe and eliminate stress. An LED-backlit waterfall, nine LED color settings and built-in cupholders create a soothing experience. Say “no” to burnout—it’s the ideal way to unwind after work.

Why I Like It

Want a hot tub from a brand you know and trust? Check out the Aquarest Spa by Jacuzzi for a backyard experience you won’t soon forget. This four-seater hot tub comes with a generous warranty, is weather-resistant and is easy to move around (without water in it, of course). Hot tubs have a bad reputation for being difficult to install and maintain, but the Aquarest Spa blows that notion out of the water—literally. Just plug in the 120V 15-amp GFCI cord and fill it up. It’s that easy!

Building a relaxing outdoor oasis requires time, patience and a pretty hefty budget. After all, outdoor kitchen kits and greenhouses don’t come cheap. It’s important to cut costs wherever possible, but that doesn’t mean settling for subpar products. Snag this upscale find at the lowest price we’ve seen—that means extra wiggle room in the budget for the best fire pit rings, flood lights and outdoor shades.

How to Drain the Aquarest Spa

The spa is simple to drain. Turn off the power, then remove the drain valve cap and move it to the open position. Then, connect a hose to the nozzle of the valve to direct water away from your backyard and home. Once fully drained, it’s beneficial to flip the hot tub upside down to ensure all water drains out. This is especially important to effectively winterize your hot tub.

What Reviewers Say

Reviewers rave about the easy setup and strong jets. Verified reviewer Theresa writes, “Easy to set up. Lots of room for two people to spread out and enjoy but will hold three to four smaller-sized adults. The waterfall is a beautiful feature at night. The jets are strong and really relaxing, especially after a long day at work. I just received my hot tub, and it was definitely a plug-and-play, the water was ready the next day. I’m so happy I decided on this tub.”
