Starting January 1, 2015, both FedEx and UPS are switching over to a dimensional pricing model instead of the current price by weight system on all box sizes. Previously, dimensional pricing only kicked in on boxes that exceeded 3 cubic feet which is pretty big.
What does this mean for you and America’s SPA-MART? Unfortunately, we will have to raise our prices on items that don’t weigh a whole lot yet need to ship in a larger box. This primarily means the filters for pools, spas and hot tubs that we sell. The increases will vary due to filters being different sizes, however one thing is certain. Prices are going up soon.
With that being said, we encourage you to stock up and beat the price increase. We are fully stocked and ready to serve you. We appreciate your loyal patronage with your pool and spa supply business and we wanted to give you a head’s up before the increase goes into effect.
Attention Hot Spring, Tiger River and Hot Spot Spa Owners: We’ve got two of the most popular genuine Watkins replacement supplies for you! Now you can find the Freshwater Ag+ Cartridge and Tri-X filters right here at America’s SPA-MART.
Most owners of one of these tubs knows that the Freshwater Ag+ Continuous Silver Ion Sanitizer is a great way to get your water clean and clear while reducing the need to add as much chlorine to your hot tub. We can hardly keep these in stock, so we know you love them.
If you’re unaware of this product, it introduces silver ions into the water that inhibit bacteria growth. When installed, the Freshwater Ag+ cartridge charges the water with its ions with a charge that lasts 3-4 months depending on how often you use your tub. Prices start at $27.95 for this must-have product, but you can get yours as low $24.60 when you buy some extras for your buddies or just to put on the shelf and save for later.
Tri-X Filters for Watkins manufactured tubs are another great way to get the maximum value from your magnificently-engineered hot tub. The genuine Hot Spring-brand Tri-X filter is three-dimensional. Traditional filters rely upon the paper media to catch particulates in a single pass. The Tri-X filter not only filters by using the element’s surface area, it also uses the media’s depth (third dimension). Because it filters by depth rather than just surface filtration, Tri-X filters ten times more gallons per square foot than other filters and it provides over twice (65 sq. ft.) the filtration area of a standard (30 sq. ft.) filter. The Tri-X filter is made to last at least 5 years!
