What type of jets are folks using in similar size spa (7x9) to create a "somewhat" hydrotherapeutic experience without having to purchase 2+ pumps to support large number of hydrotherapy jets like the parajets??
  • I know it isn't going to replace my Bullfrog A7L but want to try to create some sort of hydrotherapeutic experience with jets
Background
  • We are in the process of final design & contract to build a new pool (18x35) & attached raised spa (7x9) however focusing in on the hydraulics situation for the spa right now.
  • Current plan is to have a dedicated spa pump (IntelliFloXF 3HP) to roughly 12 jets
    • Based on the recently discovering the parajets GPM specs......(20gpm demand each)
    • Wondering if we should rethink number of jets in our 7x9 rectangle spa or mix of different types of jets that are hydrotherapeutic if possible since I use our current bullfrog A7L spa almost daily.. thoughts??
    • Spa will be in ground and raised 18" above grade with spill over... but grade in the backyard is almost level to pad.. pad might even or little lower than top of spa waterline.
High level Equipment List
• Pool Pump -- Pentair Intelliflo VSF Variable Speed and Variable Flow Pump (Model: 011056)
• Spa Pump -- Pentair IntellifloXF VSF 3HP 230V Variable Speed and Variable Flow Pump (Model: 022056)
• Filter -- Pentair Quad 100 D.E./Cartridge Filter sqft with NO backwash installed (Model: 188594)

I dont have firsthand experience with the products linked below, so consider this for information/awareness only. . . We became aware of these when scoping our build with similar questions on spa jets, but didn't have time to research fully and ended up installing standard jets. May be worth looking into, or others can comment on if they have direct experience with similar in-line or cluster jets.
