Marquis is promoting the extra safety of its entrapment protection technology after pledging to slash long COVID-19 pandemic delivery times that were previously over 14 months for international dealers.
With an entrapment incident involving a second-hand hot tub in the UK currently being investigated by BISHTA, the USA manufacturer of multiple WhatSpa?, WhatSwimSpa?, and WhatSpa? Holiday Park Award-winning designs has been highlighting its Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS) that provides extra protection against entrapment risks occurring if hair, clothing, or body parts block a suction intake.
In cases of entrapment within poorly manufactured hot tubs, a blocked suction intake could cause a person or a young child to become trapped underwater. Oregon-based Marquis, which celebrated its 40th anniversary with the launch of a brand-new Crown Collection that gained 2021 WhatSpa? Best Buy Award-winning status for the seven-seater Marquis Crown Collection Summit model, has stressed though that consumers can be assured that quality hot tub manufacturers working to strict health and safety guidelines ensure that entrapment prevention is a key part of their design and production process.
“Hot tubs are required to have multiple safety suction fittings, but Marquis goes even further by adding a Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS),” said a spokesperson for Marquis.
“SVRS is a vacuum-brake assembly connected to each suction fitting. In the event a suction fitting is blocked, SVRS immediately stops suction at the fitting by introducing air into the line.”
The promotion of the advanced peace of mind benefits of the entrapment safety system comes after Marquis has gained multi-talented actress and media star Amanda Holden as a new advocate in the UK for its brand after the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ judge gained advanced Marquis hot tub hydrotherapy from WhatSpa? Professional dealer Hot Tubs Oxfordshire.
Marquis, which also produces the Aquatic Training Vessel (ATV) models including the 2021 WhatSwimSpa? Best Buy Award-winning ATV-17 Kona, has also reported that it has been working hard during the COVID-19 pandemic to step up production so that previous waiting times of over a year for hot tubs can be dramatically reduced by half.
“Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our team, we are seeing good signs of improvement,” said a spokesperson for Marquis; “Whereas wait times for Marquis hot tubs were 14 months or longer early in the pandemic, average wait times are now approaching five to six months.
“Meanwhile, we refuse to compromise our strict quality, beauty, and performance standards. While unpredictable shortages from our suppliers may extend wait times further, we are keeping our dealers regularly informed of the situation.
“Firm updates are provided to dealers once a backordered spa enters production. In the meantime, we appreciate everyone’s ongoing patience and understanding.”
The 2021 WhatSpa? Verdict of the Crown Collection Summit model declares that it provides ‘truly regal pampering options’ and that it is a ‘family spa like no other, combining the benefits of a social layout with fantastic full-body massage therapy for every bather’.
