Dimension One Spas Blazes Trail With Eco-Friendly Products


Good for the Body; Good for the Planet:

San Diego, CA (Aug. 30, 2007) - In an age when going green is deemed paramount, Dimension One Spas (D1) is leading the environmental crusade in the home hot tub market by creating products that exemplify sustainable luxury. D1 Spas bring wellness to the backyard by offering a diverse line of high-end hot tubs and swim spas that are good for the body and good for the planet. The products' earth-friendly features include:

- Hot tub and swim spa exteriors that are made with recycled plastic milk containers. This 100% recycled material (HDPE) is environmentally stable, does not give off any harmful fumes and requires no staining or painting.

- The industry's first water purification system that uses ultraviolet light as a germicidal agent, which is combined with ozone to significantly reduce chemical usage. The system also returns 84% of its power back to the water in the form of heat.

- D1's patented 10-step water management system - using earth-friendly options like an ozonator, UV light, a zinc and silver mineral cartridge, and a filter - requires less chlorine than is contained in most city drinking water. The system also uses less electricity than a 100-watt bulb!

- Proof of energy efficiency: while prices for these luxury hot tubs and swim spas range from $15,000 to $40,000, with 100% foam insulation, the monthly heating costs are only $15 to $25!

Known for design innovation, D1 Spas has secured over 30 patents in its 30 years of operation - more than any other in the industry - providing owners with premiere lifestyle accessories that underscore an eco-savvy mentality with an affinity for the good life.

D1's extensive green features are deemed the real deal by Michael Galica, owner of the Marin Outdoor Living showroom in Northern California. Environmental advocate Galica, who fills his sleek and eco-friendly San Francisco Bay-area showroom with cutting-edge products including 100% clean-burning fireplaces, UV fighting sunshades and wood furniture approved by the Forest Council, carries just one line of hot tubs - D1 Spas.

"Marin's average consumer is extremely educated and environmentally aware this county has the most Prius cars per-capita of any in the United States," explains Galica. "My customers choose products that leave a small footprint, and I haven't seen any other pool or spa company that comes close to D1's environmental efficiency and stability. They are by far the best-in-class in the green luxury spa market, so I specifically chose them as the only line to carry in my store."

Bob Hallam, CEO and founder of D1, sets the tone for innovations at the company. "Our green initiative began in earnest in 1999 when we first built our manufacturing facility here in Vista," he explains. "We worked closely with our local electric company to make sure the building was energy efficient, and we were also able to custom design the factory to provide the most efficient production possible. And our spa designers love to rise to the challenge of constantly improving our products," he continues. "It isn't enough just to sit back and admire our eco-friendly accomplishments. At every level of our organization employees are constantly bringing new sustainability ideas to the table. At D1, being green is an attitude, and we will never stop getting better."

How D1 Spas are Good for the Body and Good for the Planet:


" Hydronomics: D1's extensive study of human anatomy, ergononmics, fluid mechanics, aquatic massage, acupressure and reflexology led them to the development of a new field they named "hydronomics." D1 engineers design products for the ultimate in comfort and performance.

" Dynamic Massage Sequencer: The DMS was the world's first programmable hydrotherapy massager. The built-in massager focuses on 6 specific therapy zones and offers pause and speed controls.

" Ultralounge: This "spa-within-a-spa" lounge features patented, no-float Bioform seating, sculpted leg contours and acupressure therapy for wrists and hands.

" Neck Jet Pillow: The first and only height-adjustable spa neck jet pillow on the market.

" Aquatic Fitness Systems®: The AquaFit® 19 Dual Temp, the line's flagship model, is the ultimate hybrid of fitness and hydrotherapy. The 19-foot swim spa makes it possible to swim stationary laps; row for a robust upper body and arm workout; attach specially designed bands for resistance training; run or jog in place for cardiovascular conditioning - all in cooler water. When your routine is done, muscles can be soothed with a relaxing hydrotherapy body massage in the hot tub section.
It is an ideal environment for low-impact exercises to tone, shape and enhance flexibility, while the body is suspended in buoyant security. Ideal for weekend warriors; aging boomers; overweight exercisers and athletes needing rehabilitation, the AFS retails for about $37,000.


- Envirotect : The Ultralife shell is surrounded by a durable, all-weather exterior made from 100% recycled plastic. Envirotect is the most environmentally friendly exterior available on spas today. This 100% recycled material (HDPE) is environmentally stable, does not give off harmful fumes and is recommended by the Healthy Building Network, a national organization of green building professionals and environmental health activists. Envirotect requires virtually no maintenance and, unlike wood, the all-weather Envirotect requires no staining or painting.
- Vision® Sanitation Cartridge: The Vision sanitation cartridge offers users a natural clean alternative to harsh, chemical-based sanitation systems. The Vision cartridge uses silver catalyst technology that kills 99.96% of bacteria. A Vision cartridge lasts up to 6 months, significantly reducing the need for extra chemicals.

- So Much Less Chlorine: D1 water management technology cuts down the need for chlorine in their water from 3-5 parts per million to 1 ppm, which means no more dry, itchy skin, faded swimwear, irritated eyes or strong odors from chlorine.

- D1's 10-Part, Earth-Friendly UltraPure PLUS Water Management System purifies the spa water 24/7 and includes the smart use of an ozonator, a germicidal UV light, minerals, chlorine (to totally eliminate surface bacteria) and a filter. D1's patented system provides the cleanest, clearest spa water in the industry. Without this balanced, carefully engineered system, more chemicals and maintenance would be required.

- Fast Flo Heater: The most durable and reliable spa heater on the market provides optimal heat recovery and lower energy consumption.

- 100% Insulated: In 1981 D1 was the first company to manufacture a fully insulated spa for in-ground or above-ground use. Today D1's hot tubs are 100% foam insulated with closed-cell urethane -- like commercial freezers -- not only absorbing noise for quiet operation, but also minimizing heat loss to ensure the lowest energy costs possible. High-density foam covers are precision fitted with seams to prevent heat loss. D1 spas and swim spas use up to 85% less energy than traditional in-ground, non-insulated pools!

D1's constantly evolving list of environmentally and ergonomically friendly innovations gives homeowners a wide range of smart, responsible lifestyle choices.
