Who is Watkins Wellness?

It all started in 1977 – Jeff and Jon Watkins built a HotSpring® Spa and quickly began to lead the industry in innovations: full insulation, underwater lighting, top loading filters, Moto-Massage® – the first moving jet. All while keeping design and beauty in mind. The look of a HotSpring Spa has changed a lot in 40 years, but so have decorating tastes.  

In 1986, Watkins joined MASCO, a Fortune 500 company, one of the world’s largest manufacturers for home improvement. MASCO believes that it is important to be innovative and still be environmentally-friendly, reduce energy usage and conserve natural resources.  

Over the past 40 years, Watkins has acquired Caldera® Spas, American Hydrotherapy Systems and Endless Pools® – continuing its pioneering way of leading the industry. 

In 2010, HotSpring introduced the first factory integrated salt water sanitizing system – the ACE Salt Water Sanitizing System, which has changed the way you take care of your luxury hot tubs daily water care. 

In 2014, Watkins partnered with DesignWorks, a BMW Company to completely redesign their Highlife Line and create the Highlife NXT. Making it not just a nice hot tub, but a beautiful addition to your backyard.


In 2016, Watkins Wellness® became our new name, because we want world’s leading manufacturer of hot tubs and aquatic fitness products, while not forgetting the that our business is about the customer’s well-being and health. Relaxation, connection with your family, feeling better – it’s what we are all about.  

Most recently, DesignWorks has redesigned our Limelight. Fresh styling, clean lines, beautiful exterior lighting have completely updated this line of hot tubs.


Our dream is to have a hot tub in every back yard – water makes you feel better – let us help you feel better. 

At Hot Tubs by HotSpring, we carry Highlife, Highlife NXT, Limelight, Hot Spot, Fantasy Spas and Endless Pools Fitness Systems. Stop in to visit the largest display showroom of HotSpring and Endless Pools in NJ.

  1. Hello,
    Where can I get parts or service for my Watkins spa? I’m in 06032

  2. How do I remove the outer shell of a HotSpot RLX so I can try to fix a serious leak? I am the owner and the dealer told me it would be a minimum of $1500 just to bring it in to the shop to check it. It is older but I have done a lot of work on it where I could access things but I need to get to the actual plumbing.

  3. Phyllis – We are a local dealer in NJ and we cannot advise you on self repair. The expenses for a plumbing leak do include the removal & transportation to the shop for a safe environment to do such a job. If you would like to contact the manufacturer Watkins Wellness, they may be able to advise you.

  4. I am trying to purchase an aquaterra benicia hot tub; I previously owned one but sold it with my home and have moved to Mesquite, NV and would like to purchase another. Can you direct me to an outlet? John Kato
