Softub Sales in Indiana

It all started with our Founder, Tom Thornbury, and a group of engineers in a garage over 30 years ago. After looking at the other hot tubs available, they created a cost-effective, durable, and comfortable spa that incorporated the best features possible.

The uniqueness of our Softub® product soon generated its reputation as a pioneer in a niche market, and five years later, in 1992, Softub® gained a high position on the INC 500 list of the fastest growing companies and stayed there for a record three years.

From humble beginnings in a small shop in Los Angeles, CA, Softub® is now a worldwide corporation with factories on both coasts and distribution in 50 states and over 30 foreign countries. The primary reasons for the great success of Softub® is the truly unique, break-through product concept and the devotion and diligence of hundreds of talented, dedicated employees, dealers, and distributors. Softub® spas are hand-crafted unlike traditional spas.

Softub® has grown to be one of most recognized brands in the industry. We continue to be a leader in innovation for portable hot tub design and hold numerous patents with our processes and components that are unmatched by any other.

With the success of Softub® in today’s economy, it’s a perfect time to join the Softub® family and help us continue to grow in the next 30 years.

  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgea
  • Anxiety and Stress Reduction
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic Pain Conditions
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Just Pure Relaxation

A warm soak in a Softub® relieves the pain of muscle and joint stiffness, improves blood circulation and releases endorphins which is a natural pain reliver. Buoyancy of water reduces 90% of body weight, making it easy to move around comfortably.

Choose from the various levels of massage created by the adjustable jets that will assist in loosening knots of tension and enhances the muscle’s range of motion. With increased blood flow, the brain releases endorphins into the blood stream, a natural form of pain relief for tension, ligaments and tendons in the body.

The National Sleep Foundation states that “soaking in hot water, such as a hot tub before bedtime, can ease the transition into a deeper sleep. A gradual reduction in body temperature induces drowsiness, leaving you more prepared for sleep.

Diabetics can also get much needed relief. Obvious results from foot and leg pain are felt with increased blood flow. Water exercise in a more buoyant situation allows unrestricted movement that greatly improves joint mobility.

Looking for a natural way to get your joints moving in the morning? Close the medicine cabinet and try an age-old remedy that has stood the test of time: heat.

If you have a chronic condition like fibromyalgia, arthritis, or lower back pain, try heating things up. Soaking in warm water or applying a heated compress is one of the oldest, cheapest, and safest forms of complementary therapy. Research has shown that heat treatments can loosen stiff joints and relieve achy muscles.

Here is how it works. When you warm up a sore joint or tired muscle, your blood vessels get bigger. This allows more blood, oxygen, and nutrients to be delivered to the injured tissues. Better circulation means more relaxation for those stiff muscles and joints.

The Softub® Hydromate System is what powers your Softub®.

Just line up the pipes and screw it on…IT HEATS WITHOUT A HEATER.

Our patented heat recovery system utilizes the waste heat generated from the pump motor to heat your spa to your desired temperature. We do this by circulating the water through stainless steel coils that are wrapped around the pump housing.

Our Patented SmartChip® power monitoring system prevents the pump from turning on if voltage is too low which can cause damage to your pump. Additionally, the SmartChip® will also reset your Softub®, and turn it back on once power levels return to normal.

What does this technology mean to you?

  • No expensive, unreliable heater to fail.
  • Unsurpassed longevity of your Softub® pump motor, as it is a water-cooled system.
  • Plugs into a standard dedicated 15 amp outlet
  • A 120v Spa that can operate both heat and jets simultaneously.
  • Unrivaled efficiency. Softub® easily meets and far exceeds the maximum allowed electric usage set by The California Energy Commission.
  • Your Softub® will maintain your desired temperature in all climates year-round. Digital setting between 60 degrees and 106 degrees allow for you to get the right temperature and all below $15 per month no matter where you live.

Your Choice for Hydrotherapy

While it's true that relaxation is a common benefit of spas, your Softub® was designed for true, even hydrotherapy. From jet positioning to the barrier-free seating, Softub® provides unrestricted movement for your hydrotherapy routine. We didn't invent hydrotherapy ... we just made it better!

Chronic Pain Conditions

With more knowledge coming forward on the health concerns of opioids and long term pain medications, people are looking for a more homeopathic approach to managing chronic pain. A warm soak in a Softub® relieves the pain and muscle joint stiffness. The buoyancy of water reduces 90% of body weight, while improving blood circulation, allowing the brain to naturally release endorphins into the blood stream creating a natural pain reliever. Hydrotherapy assists greatly in the dilation of blood vessels, which increases circulation that helps people with muscle or joint pain by delivering oxygen and enzymes to the pain sites.

Sleep Disorders

Lack of sleep has been linked to numerous negative effects. Luckily enough the answer might be waiting in your own back yard. The National Sleep Foundation states that "soaking in hot water, such as a hot tub before retiring can ease the transition into a deeper sleep." Here is the science behind it: soaking in water before going to bed triggers your body's internal thermostat to lower your body temperature. A gradual reduction in body temperature induces drowsiness, leaving you more prepared for sleep.

Fibromyalgia

Hydrotherapy appears to be particularly effective for those suffering from FMS by reducing muscle pain in the ligaments and tendons. In one study, fibromyalgia patients were given therapeutic whirlpool baths twice a week for six weeks. Upon conclusion of the study, the patients involved had better muscle and joint function, reduced pain symptoms and improved sleep quality.

Arthritis

With over 40 million people affected by arthritis, a warm soak in a Softub® relieves the pain of muscle and joint stiffness, improves blood circulation and releases endorphins which is a natural pain reliever. Buoyancy of water reduces 90% of body weight, making it easy to move around comfortably.

Anxiety & Stress Reduction

Choose from the various levels of massage created by the adjustable jets that assist in loosening knots of tension and enhances the muscle range of motion. With increased blood flow, the brain releases endorphins into the blood stream, a natural form of pain relief for tension in the body.

Diabetes

'With the vast increase of Type 2 diabetes, also referred to as "adult onset diabetes," watching your weight and moderate exercise is an essential part of managing it. Exercising in your Softub® allows unrestricted movement for water aerobics that greatly improves joint mobility as well as the positive effect of increasing blood circulation, naturally releasing endorphins into the blood stream that serves as a natural pain reliever. This can be especially helpful for diabetics who are unable to participate in traditional forms of exercise.
