MAAX PowerPool Fitness Options

PowerPools exercise swim spas

Swim Training

Swimming has long been known as the ultimate zero-impact exercise and is widely prescribed by physicians to their patients who want to get in shape or tone their body. PowerPool™ employs an impressive water propulsion system that works in concert with its open floor plan design. The observation seats and well-marked swim lanes provide the optimum swim training center for your entire family.

Aerobic Training

A wide variety of aerobic exercises are possible in a PowerPool™. Aqua jogging is especially effective as the deep water neutralizes the effects of gravity while increasing resistance for an amazing low impact workout. Fitness experts also recommend a warm water fitness regimen to maximize weight loss.

Toning and Sculpting

Your PowerPool™ can be equipped with an aquatic exercise equipment package that features modern resistance band technology. Attach the resistance bands to the connector rings on the PowerPool™ to perform a complete toning program. Whether you are looking to tone, strength train or add muscle mass, the PowerPool™ will maximize your results through efficient heat dissipation and the comfortable warm water environment.

Swim Jets

MAAX Force Jet Propulsion

The new MAAX Force jet propulsion system uses proprietary ‘Anti-Turbulance’ technology to boost and smooth the swim stream for the ultimate swimming experience. Anti-turbulance technology creates a powerful, smooth, variable jet stream. It is completely adjustable and designed to allow you to swim at your fitness level.

The MAAX Force Jet propulsion has advantages over propellers or paddles when creating a better swim stream. It is over 30” wide and easily produces a powerful swimming experience. You can also turn on the hydrotherapy mode to add air for a massage while you work out in the jet stream. With the hydrotherapy mode you will be massaged while working on your resistance training and stretching.

Steel Frame

The MAXX Spas® Steel Sub-Structure is a key feature of the Relaxation line of spas.  Engineered to exact tolerances, it allows for complete integration of all the systems of the spa.  The lightweight, high-strength steel frame will never rot, warp, split or crack.  It will never expand or contract with moisture, which over time can damage the spa’s exterior.  A 250% superior strength to weight ratio over conventional wood frames provides you with a lighter and stronger unit.  Plus, with the addition of greater long-term corrosion protection, your sub-structure is weatherproof, requiring zero maintenance.

Solid ABS Bottom Pan

The ABS Sealed Base is an integral part of the support structure in a MAAX Spas®  hot tub. Its one-piece construction provides a rugged foundation that seals the bottom of the spa to lock in heat, seal out moisture to protect from rot, and protect the spa from bugs, rodents, and other unwanted pests.

Northern Exposure Insulation System

Northern Exposure® is the ultimate hot tub insulation system. This unique thermal barrier technology recycles the free heat energy for more efficient heating and lower energy costs. All four sides of the spa, plus the floor and cover are lined with reflective copper material to reflect radiant heat energy generated from the pumps back into the spa. Heat is absorbed back into the plumbing helping raise and maintain water temperature. The exterior of the spa is then wrapped in BlueMAAX® insulation. Finally the entire exterior of the hot tub is wrapped in 3M Thinsulate™ Insulation, the same incredible material utilized in winter clothing. This three layer patented system ensures energy created by the spa stays in the spa.

BlueMAAX Insulation

Made from recycled natural fiber, it is approved by the U.S. Green Building Council. The insulation contains no chemical irritants, is treated with a borate-based solution to prevent mold/mildew growth, pest infestation, and acts as a fire retardant. BlueMAAX® replaces the urethane foam in “foam filled” hot tubs. (Foam filling produces volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) which are harmful to the environment.) These panels also allow for easy access and can be taken out and put back together to factory specifications right in your own home. “Foam filled” hot tubs require the foam to be chipped out to access vital parts of your spa and need to send the spa back to the factory to safely refill these holes.


Clean Water Technology

ClearMAAX Filtration

Perfect moments deserve perfect, crystal clear water. The water maintenance of your spa is made easy by the features of the MAAX Spas®’ complete water management system. Water is first drawn into the system from both the upper skimmer and lower foot-well areas. The High-Velocity Skimmer draws water into the filter system to capture surface debris and contaminants. Our 100% filtration means every drop of water is filtered. Our high volume filter cycle cleans your spa water 4 to 6 times per hour, providing a clean and enjoyable hot tub experience day after day. Glistening clean water, in a moments notice. It is programmable to your schedule and easy to set the right temperature.  The system lowers energy costs using the “Smart” control system which turns on your heater and pumps only to clean or heat.

CleanZone – Ozone

(Not Available on DM8)

Clean water is the cornerstone of spa enjoyment. MAAX Spas® CleanZone™ water purification system will automatically maintain healthy, crystal clear water while greatly reducing chemical maintenance. CleanZone™ is a cartridge ozone system that disinfects and cleans your spa. And best of all, CleanZone™ does not require any cleaning or maintenance whatsoever. Worry-free enjoyment, throughout the life of your spa.

CleanZone II – UV

(Option on all swim spas)

The CleanZone II™ system uses the power of UVC light, the same technology utilized in many communities around the world to purify drinking water. Clean Zone II™ kills 99.9%* of microorganisms, bacteria, viruses and parasites. This system is the perfect blend of hygiene, purity and technology.


Direct Drive Pumps

MAAX Spas® hot tubs utilize industrial duty dual speed 56 frame pumps in all of their 240 volt models. The isolation pump mount  incorporates four shock absorbers to absorb vibration and noise. The 56 frame motor is 30% larger, more powerful and delivers higher water flow for better jet performance than the 48 frame motors found in most spas. They also run cooler for longer life and have lower amp draw for lower operating costs. High water flow with efficient, quiet operation – that’s better performance!
