40 Year History of Excellence

The Cal Spas story begins forty years ago at a crowded county fair. The year was 1978 and California Acrylic Industries was a Pomona, California based pool builder in need of a way to exhibit a large variety of pool designs in a small space. To solve this dilemma, the company created small scale versions of its formed acrylic pools and put them on display for customers. The miniature pools sparked interest and the company began to receive special requests for acrylic hot tubs. A year later, with the company's hot tub business growing, California Acrylic Industries took a leap of faith. The company stopped building pools and focused full-time on the hot tub business-and Cal Spas was born.

Cal Spas began with a small selection of hot tubs in a choice of only a few colors and styles. Gradually, the brand grew in popularity and within a few short years, Cal Spas began nationwide distribution. The company outgrew its 10,000 square foot manufacturing facility and moved company headquarters to its current 40,000-acre location in Pomona, California.

In 1995, after 16 years in the spa business, the company embraced a new direction and established its mission to grow Cal Spas into a global leader in luxurious outdoor living products. In 1997, the company launched the tagline "Changing The Way You Feel" to reflect its mission to serve dealers and customers with a full collection of Home Resort products. Shortly thereafter, Cal Spas began a gradual rollout of gazebos, barbecue islands, fireplaces, firepits and saunas.

Today, the celebrated hot tub maker is world renowned as the #1 Global Manufacturer of Home Resort Products. Cal Spas produces premium collections of lifestyle products from its headquarters in Pomona, California and distributes worldwide through a network of specialty dealers.

The Cal Spas brand family of products includes Cal Spas hot tubs and swim spas, and Cal Flame high-end outdoor grills and hardware, barbecue islands, outdoor fireplaces and firepits. From our humble beginnings selling swimming pools to our future in the homes of families around the world, Cal Spas remains committed to giving you new ways to enjoy the outdoors at an unbeatable value for any budget. Let the Cal Spas story continue with you.

If you notice anything out of the ordinary about your water, you may need to stay on top of your routine maintenance for your spa. If you notice any leaves or large debris in your water, use a skimmer to scoop up anything you can see.

This is one of the most important things to keep track of when maintaining your spa. A couple test strips or pH test kit are a must have to make sure that your spa water is healthy. The ideal pH balance of your spa should be hovering around the 7.2-7.8 range. Any lower and your water is too acidic. Any higher and your water is too alkaline/basic.

While you do this it is a good idea to do a thorough cleaning of your filter. Instead of just rinsing the filter out with water, we recommend soaking the filter overnight in cleaning agents to maximize filter health. Always be sure to do a final water rinse and dry of the filter before re-installation. Replacement (Annually) With regular spa use, it is recommended to do a full filter replacement annually. After regular cleaning, the filter media beings to break down over time. Annually a full replacement is recommended to ensure a long life for all other parts of the spa.
