This technology is unique to Artesian Spas.

Customizable Spas

All of the Artesian spas have plenty of upgrades you can choose from so you can fully customize your spa with the features you want. The more expensive models have a wider range of optional extras but even the budget hot tubs have features you can opt for plus they have a great selection of color options so you can coordinate your tub's colors with its surroundings.

Good Warranty

Artesian Spas offer a good warranty on their spas, covering the structure, spa surface, plumbing, electrical, parts and labor, and cabinet. Their tubs come with a lifetime warranty on the structure.
