Durable & Elegant
Dream Maker Spas are manufactured using cutting edge rotational molding technology that uses a tough, recyclable thermal plastic called high-density polyethylene.
Unlike many of today’s spas, rotationally molded spas do not require hundreds of pounds of fiberglass, wood, resins, and fillers that make the spa heavy, difficult to handle, and more expensive for the consumer.
Many items you see today are manufactured using rotational molding because of the safe, dependability of the process — items such as medical products, garden and sports equipment, furniture and transportation components.
Spa manufacturing using rotational molded thermal plastics does not require the use of fiberglass and resins that release volatile organic compounds that can become toxic if not handled properly. Even better rotationally molded spa shells can be recycled, reducing waste and materials that end up in our landfill.
A rotationally molded spa gives you all of the same quality benefits, and enjoyment along with the good feeling that comes from buying an earth friendly spa.
The roto-molding process begins with a precision two-piece aluminum mold that is placed into a computer guided rotary conveyor that has areas for loading, heating, staging and cooling. A precise quantity of high-density polyethylene material with a sand-like consistency is deposited into the mold, then sent to a large oven to be heated and slowly rotated on horizontal and vertical axes, causing the melted polyethylene material to flow and shape to the walls of the heated mold. The spinning continues through the cooling phase of the process to make the walls uniformly thick.
Once cooled, the spa is released from the mold and moved onto the fabrication process. Jet fittings and plumbing are installed. The equipment pack containing the pump, heater and control system is then mounted. Next the digital control panel, lighting and electrical wiring are added. On the inside of the spa the patented filtration system is installed while exclusive designed massage jets, air and water control valves are added.
After the fabrication and component installation phase is complete, each spa is rigorously water tested for 24 hours to ensure the spa and its equipment are working properly. Once this quality check is complete the exclusive energy-saving insulation and side panels are added before the protective packaging is added for shipment.
While other spa makers are beginning to catch on to the possibilities of rotational molding, Dream Maker Spas not only leads the pack with years of experience they also hold several design and process patents.
Manufactured in the United States at the Innovation Center in Lake Mary, Florida, Dream Maker Spas’ adhere to the even the strictest manufacturing guidelines set forth by UL1563 and the California Energy Commission then shipped around the world to be enjoyed by families everywhere.
You’ll see the tradition of Roto-molding excellence in each durable, dependable, and elegant Dream Maker Spa delivered.

What Are Acrylic Hot Tub Shells?
Your hot tub’s shell keeps your water contained inside your tub; it’s also a key determining factor in how well your spa retains heat. As the surface of your hot tub presents to the world, the shell must be strong enough to stand up to mishaps and to withstand years of regular use. If aesthetic concerns are important to you, it must be visually appealing as well as highly functional. Hot tub shells come in a variety of materials, each possessing their own strengths and weaknesses. Learning more about what hot tub shells are made of can give you a better idea about which hot tub would be best suited for your needs.
An acrylic hot tub shell is made from a single sheet of acrylic, which is heated until it begins to melt, then placed over a mold. Vacuums help suck away any air trapped between the mold and the acrylic sheet, resulting in a smooth and perfectly formed shell. After the acrylic has cooled and hardened, it’s reinforced with a combination of resin and fiberglass to give it additional strength. Some acrylic shells are formed through a variant process in which a layer of the polymer acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, known as ABS, is pre-applied to the sheet before molding. The resulting hot tub shell is durable, energy efficient, and aesthetically pleasing. This video provides an overview of the way in which acrylic shells are formed.
