American Whirlpool Hot Tub

American Whirlpool Hot Tubs and Swim Spas

    Why choose an American Whirlpool hot tub?


    If you find yourself in the market for a new hot tub, you will definitely hear the name American Whirlpool along the way. They are one of the most well-known spa brands in the country and one we are proud to offer here at 21st Century Pools.

    Who is American Whirlpool?

    While you may have possibly heard the name, you still may not know an awful lot about American Whirlpool as a company. Well, there's a good reason for that!

    American Whirlpool isn't actually a company, but a brand created and owned by MAAX Spas. MAAX spas were founded in 1969 and are an absolute behemoth in the hot tub and spa industry. They have taken over a number of different smaller manufacturers over the years. While MAAX has been around for many years, American Whirlpool is a brand that they most recently introduced in 2018.

    American Whirlpool has made a commitment to staying ahead of other hot tub manufacturers when it comes to innovation. They've worked with physicians to design one of their best features: Zone Therapy seating. This type of seating offers precision and accurate massage.

    Their hot tubs are also extremely efficient and quiet! Like not get in the way of your relaxation kind of quiet. This is a result of their Northern Exposure insulation system.

    We will also discuss it a little more later but one of their main features is the "future proof" way these tuns are built. They are fully serviceable at home and guaranteed for the lifetime that you own it.

    Nothing is more relaxing after a long day than the hydrotherapy massage that an American Whirlpool hot tub offers. It can help you heal from injury, improve arthritis, or most importantly just destress

    Their many model options cater to all different therapy needs. We feel confident that you will find your perfect fit for comfort, relief, and performance.

    Spa Types

    American Whirlpool offers two different ranges of products. The traditional hot tub and for those looking for something with a bit more of an active option, the swim spa. There are multiple models in both of these lines, which allows you to choose something that fits in your budget or may work better for your lifestyle.

    Traditional Hot Tubs

    Traditional hot tubs are for those who are looking to use a hot tub in the way we are all familiar with. To relax! They are for those that want to melt into the warm water at the end of the day. Letting the jets work their magic on your sore and aching muscles.

    American Whirlpool offers around 21 different models in their current hot tub line-up. They offer 2 seaters all the way up to tubs that seat 8-9 people. They come with multiple options that can focus on what part of the body you are trying to loosen up.

    Swim Spas

    Swim Spas offer the best of both worlds. Swim Spas combine the option of physical activity with the more traditional comfort of a relaxing traditional hot tub. The sacrifice made here is seating is cut in half to allow both options. This can be of benefit though for those who want to have the additional option.

    You can swim a few laps in place while others enjoy the traditional seating. When you are done slide on over and let the jets soothe you after your workout.

    American Whirpool currently has 7 different models in their Swim Spa range.


    We think American Whirlpool does an excellent job of describing the overall feel of their hot tubs on their website. So here it is in their own words:

    "Whether it’s diminishing the stresses of everyday life, healing a sports injury, massaging sore muscles, relieving stiff and aching joints from arthritis, or simply helping you achieve a good night’s sleep – your AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tub can help with Physician designed Zone Therapy®. Zone Therapy® utilizes strategically positioned jets to target specific pain zones that contain muscular trigger points. More jets don’t necessarily mean a more effective massage. Precisely locating the correct size jet and massaging action where they are most effective is key to relieving pain and stiffness throughout the entire body. The Zone Therapy® concept has been designed by medical specialists in the fields of physical rehabilitation and massage therapy."

    American Whirlpool hot tubs come with their trademark Performace Seating technology. This means they have the most comfortable seats going amongst all the competition. These seats offer complete body immersion while keeping your proper posture. This lines you up in the best position of the jets so that it maximizes their performance.

    The seats also have their built-in trademarked headrests called Comfort Collars. Comfort Collars cradle your head along with bolsters on the side of your body that keep you ergonomically positioned. The seats have been designed so that they follow the curvature of the spine providing the correct posture. This will definitely reduce stress on your lower back!


    By using a steel structure and the trademarked Northern Exposure insulation, their hot tubs are built to be serviced at home. Both the entire structure and all of the mechanical parts within the tub. If they needed to they could service the tub to the point of bringing it back to factory specifications. This setup allows them the ability to do all of this right in your own backyard. Even better? This can be done the entire lifespan of the hot tub, for as long as you own it. American Whirlpool refers to this as "appliance grade". Why? Because their hot tubs are built to the same safety standards as other major appliances.


    So that about sums up American Whirlpool and the products that they offer.

    We hope this article helped to inform you more about the quality of their product and the features that they implement into their tubs. It's important to know what's available when you are shopping around for a hot tub. Not all companies do things the same or build to the same high-quality standard as American Whirlpool.
