LUXURY HOT TUB & SWIM SPA COMPANY, 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
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
- 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.
