Rules on displaying hot tubs in shops and public places should be reviewed, according to a report into a fatal outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in 2012 at the JTF Warehouse in Stoke-on-Trent. The Health Protection Agency (HPA) report said a hot tub on show was the probable source of the outbreak. Two men – Richard Griffin, 64, and 79-year old William Hammersley – both died and 19 other people caught the disease. The HPA said hot tubs posed a health risk if not regularly maintained. The report said: “This was a significant outbreak and has raised questions on the acceptability of operating spa pools (also known as whirl pools and hot tubs) in public places where the general population has access.


“Spa Pools are known to pose a risk of Legionella if water systems are not rigorously maintained, properly managed and subject to regular chemical controls. “Operating spa pools on display in indoor spaces, even if not used for bathing, have been previously shown to be the cause of outbreaks in other countries,” the report added.


Coast Spas Hot Tubs Wins Global Recognition


Visitors to About.com, ranked as the 79th most visited site in the world (alexa.com), have chosen Coast Spas hot tubs as the best hot tub brand for 2013. About.com’s annual Reader’s Choice Awards places the top companies (nominated by their readers) against each other in a month-long voting race that is determined by their readers. Approximately 2% of internet users worldwide use about.com on a daily basis and there was an estimated 100,000 votes cast in the Best Hot Tub/Spa Category. Coast Spas was up against HotSprings Hot Tubs and Bullfrog Hot Tubs. Coast Spas dealerships from around the world asked their customers to vote and the result was a commanding win over the competition with Coast Spas finishing with 68% of the popular vote.


This is huge recognition for the Coast Spas company that has shaken up the hot tub world with designs and innovations that has turned this one-time small operation into a globally recognised brand. The company’s innovations include their patented infinity edge spas and commercial grade cyclonic filtration

system. While other large manufacturers are outsourcing and moving their operations to countries with lower labour costs, Coast Spas’ hot tubs are all built at their company headquarters just outside of Vancouver BC, and they partner with local businesses and employ over 200 people. In 2012 Coast Spas was recognised for their environmental initiatives by their home City of Langley and was a nominee for the Annual Environmental Hero Award. Winning this prestigious award is great news for Coast Spas as they expect to grow and export more of their products around the globe as a result of this recognition. In late 2012 Coast Spas was honoured as a Top 3 Consumer Products Exporter in BC at the


annual CME BC Export Awards. Coast Spas dedicates this award to their dealers around the world as the quality of their customer service was a determining factor in the worldwide perception of the brand. “We build a great product here, but the daily dedication and commitment of our dealers to ensuring that our customers have all their needs met beyond their expectations is the reason why we have so many happy customers today. Our dealers make us so proud and are a shining example of how businesses should treat and value their customers,” said Don Elkington, founder and CEO of Coast Spas.


Coast Spas would like to thank everyone for taking the time to support them and is looking forward to serving the hot tub industry for years to come!
