Squared away

Part of the premium Highlife collection, the Vanguard might be one of the most luxurious spa pools in the Hot Spring range, but it’s also perfectly egalitarian. This 2.21m x 2.21m square is designed in such a way that every seat enjoys a wealth of room, and each soaker can see and chat to all others.

Five of the seats feature generous arrays of hydromassage jets, of which there are 38 in all. Two of those seats deserve special mention: found in the corners, they feature comfortable integrated pillows and the Moto-Massage® DX, a revolutionary jet that works its way up and down the spine, sweeping away the tension so often held in the back.

A sight for sore eyes

There’s real beauty to this spa pool beast. Taking healthy inspiration from the classic spa pool look of decades past, particularly in the finely textured, nature-inspired cabinetry, the Vanguard showcases European minimalism, with a shell that is as much about what isn’t there as what is. The package is then finished off with subtle yet spectacular features like the BellaFontana® waterfall and the Luminescence® lighting system.

You can also make the Vanguard your own. Between six cabinet options (Walnut, Bronze, Sandstone, Driftwood, Brushed Nickel, Shale) and four shell finishes (Alpine White, Ivory, Tuscan Sun, Desert) you can make the spa fit right in to your backyard, or stand out as the statement piece it was made to be.

Less work, more play

This isn’t a spa pool that gets by on looks alone – there’s serious smarts inside the cabinet. Controlled through the IQ2020 wireless touchscreen, the following water care features automate the work and maximise the play of spa pool ownership:

  • SilentFlo® 5000: This continuous circulation system reduces spa pool noise and the wear and tear on parts.
  • FreshWater® Salt System: An optional extra, this clever water care system generates chlorine from small amounts of salt.
  • No-bypass filtration: This system ensures your water is 100% filtered 100% of the time.
  • Multi-density foam insulation: Commercial freezer-level insulation that keeps water warmer and power bills lower.

FreshWater® IQ is the pinnacle of spa pool water care; a revolutionary system, a decade in the making, that delivers fully automated water care, checking your spa water every hour and telling you exactly how to keep it pristine.
