08/04/2009 – Being Benched Never Felt So Great
Cal Spas announced today the availability of three new additions to its most popular Escape series: the all new EIII748B, EIII848B and EIII864B. Each hot tub is designed to give consumers the choice between bench or lounger. Until now, the Escape series consisted of six hot tubs in a lounger configuration and only one bench model, the EIII732B.
The EIII732B features 32 jets and is a 7-foot spa. The option for Escape bench models in higher jet counts have been widely requested and are now available for purchase at authorized Cal Spas dealers worldwide. The EIII748B is a 7-foot spa and features 48 jets. The EIII848B is an 8-foot spa with 48 jets and the EIII864B is an 8-foot spa with 64 jets.
Since its introduction in 2008, the Escape series has quickly become a favorite because each model is the best value in the market. Every model in the Escape series comes standard with stainless steel accented spoke jets, a cascading waterfall, pillow headrests, an Ozonator for water clarity, and standard waterline LED lighting to set the mood for nighttime spa sessions.
The addition of these three new bench models gives customers the choice between bench or lounger models throughout the Escape series.
Bench or Lounger
The choice between a bench or lounger spa is a highly personal decision. Lounger models offer one or more seats that are designed for soaking in a reclined position while bench spas feature bucket seating or seating on a flat bench like surface. Bench models can typically accommodate more people. The decision you make depends largely on how the owner plans to use the spa. If the spa is primarily for hydrotherapy, often the owner will prefer having the option to recline in a lounge seat. If the tub will be used for entertaining guests, the owner will often prefer having guests face inwards and will want the ability to entertain more people.
