Riptide Pools has followed up on its remarkable success in the swim spa arena with its launch of the Urban Lite spa collection in 2016, which is designed to minimise operating costs, as all models in the range can be operated as plug-and-play 13 amp spas. The Uptown is the best-selling model in the range and is a spacious five-seater with comfortable lounger plus a range of barrier-free seats, all with different rotary or directional jets. A low-energy Gecko® circulation pump ensures quiet constant filtration and the optional hand-held massage jet reaches those muscle groups that can't be targeted by conventional jets. Ticks all the boxes!

Canadian manufacturer Hydropool is one of the long-established names in the global hot tub market, with an extensive UK presence at high profile consumer shows and exhibitions throughout the year and a network of dealers across the UK.
