Vita Spas Error Codes & Information

Vita Spas

Vita Spas designed the industry’s first hot tub that was built to be appliance grade. They also utilize a steel frame as one of the essential building blocks for each of their products. Their focus on hydrotherapy includes the same level of therapeutic relief that consumers would receive by visiting a massage therapist.

This company’s products offer consumers the choice between multiple different jets and configurations in order to give them the desired results, ranging from relaxation to a therapeutic massage. The massage techniques that are emulated by the specific jets that a consumer chooses include reflexology, sports massage, classic massage, effleurage massage and shiatsu massage.
