WARRANTY

LIMITED HOT TUB WARRANTY

As far as component warranties are concerned, Hot Spring Spas established the industry standard of 5 years back in 1989.

7 YEAR SHELL SURFACE WARRANTY

Watkins warrants the acrylic surface material of the Highlife Collection Hot Spring portable spa to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for seven years.

Spa covers and other spa accessories are specifically excluded from this warranty, although they may be covered by other warranties. Please check with your Hot Spring dealer for details.

5 YEAR NO-FAULT® HEATER WARRANTY

Watkins unconditionally warrants the No-Fault heater to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for five years.

5 YEAR EVERWOOD® CABINET WARRANTY

Watkins warrants the Everwood cabinet material to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for five years. This warranty specifically covers the cabinet’s structural integrity (exclusive of surface stain), including the material and assembly.

To restore the appearance of the Everwood cabinet, refer to the spa Owner’s Manual for proper care and maintenance instructions.

3 YEAR SPASTONE® CABINET WARRANTY
