What makes a spa energy efficient?
Learn how energy works in spas and why Bullfrog Spas use less energy than all other spas.
Most Energy Efficient Spa
Everyone says it, but data actually shows Bullfrog Spa models are the most energy efficient spas in their class*
*Energy calculations based on data compiled by the California Energy Commission and US Energy Information Administration (Shown in US Currency)
Engineered for Efficiency
The JetPak Therapy System™ is an ultra-efficient water delivery system that uses a SINGLE main water line to eliminate up to 90% plumbing and holes from the spa.
The bullfrog difference:
- 90% Less plumbing = Minimal radiant heat loss
- Zero pipes and tubes = Increased jet power
- Less holes in shell = Removes leak points
- Full-Foam Insulation = Highest level insulate
- Quality tight-fitting cover = Eliminates evaporation
90% Less Plumbing
Built with 90% less plumbing than all other spas, Bullfrog eliminates hundreds of metres of complex external plumbing that normally continually loses heat. This makes a big difference to the amount of energy your spa uses.
Removes 200-300m of pipes and tubes from your spa…
Bullfrog Spas full-foam design insulates the spa completely to prevent heat escaping – filling the whole interior cavity of the spa structure. This locks in more heat and is the highest level of spa insulation.
Plus removing 200-300 metres of plumbing pipes and tubes from your spa, there is much less residual water in pipes losing heat. Significantly reduced radiant heat loss means your spa uses less energy to maintain its heat = lower power consumption.

BULLFROG SPA WITH FULL-CAVITY FOAM
Most of the water delivery system in a Bullfrog Spa is submerged in hot water so any heat in the manifold transfers directly back to the body of spa water, unlike traditional external plumbing that continually leaches heat to the cold outside environment. This recycles the spa’s own heat and further conserves energy.
Infrared heat mapping shows the difference it makes – the more heat lost, the more energy the spa will use to keep the water warm.

CONVENTIONAL SPA INSULATION
Quality, tight-fitting cover
Bullfrog Spas Patio Performance™ cover design keeps cool air out and prevents heat from escaping. These covers are designed specifically for your Bullfrog Spa to maximise its energy efficiency. It is also 25% lighter to lift and has a higher UV resistance.
Zero pipes and tubes…
Engineered to deliver more power, Bullfrog Spas singular manifold system delivers power directly to every seat. It doesn’t have to travel through hundreds of metres of conventional spa plumbing with multiple friction points that reduce pressure along the way.
All the ‘spaghetti-like’ pipes are replaced by a singular, powerful JetPak
So every seat simultaneously experiences greater pressure, and the resulting modular design, without hundreds of drilled holes for individual jets and fittings, hugely reduces potential leak points and creates a much stronger spa shell.
No diverters necessary…
Your Bullfrog Spa does not require diverter valves. You can run all the massage jets on high simultaneously without losing pressure in any other seat, and you can dial in the exact intensity you want.
More Efficient Equipment
Lower running cost
Bullfrog Spas WellSpring Circulation Filtration Pump moves 130-litres per minute, which is 8 times faster than a standard circulation pump.
Quiet and vibration-free, it’s perfect for spas on decks, near bedrooms or close to the house.
Enabling a faster clean, turning over your water through the dual filter system more frequently, it cleans your water more efficiently and leads to an an average of 60% saving filtration energy costs.
Saving 60% energy…
Our WellSpring Water Purification uses Plasma-Gap Ozone advanced technology, high-output ozone that purifies your spa water continuously at the same high level for years with no maintenance to the unit needed. Unlike UV ozone, Plasma is voltage driven and does not use lightbulbs to make the ozone. Plasma technology outperforms UV Ozone systems by at least 30% more efficiently.
Bullfrog Spas have a dual filter system for maximum filtration with Microban technology to enhance filtration performance, and extra circulation jets are located behind every JetPak to circulate the water even more completely than conventional spas.
Precise Accurate Heating
The WellSpring Heater in your Bullfrog Spa heats the water quickly and only when necessary. The heater uses patented M7 temperature and flow sensor technology for increased consistency and performance. The ultra-efficient and dependable WellSpring Heater System simply does the job of heating your spa water with reliability and without any effort or worry on your part.
Raising the Bar for Performance
Bullfrog Spas innovation of the JetPak has been the biggest leap forward for efficiency and personal spa therapy in the spa pool industry.
