  • 2003 Hot Spring Sovereign

    Pros: Excellent jet therapy. Easy to use, no programming. Easy to maintain. Energy efficient.
    Cons: All jets can't be used simultaneously. SpAudio is not offered with the Sovereign.

    Summary: The spa was redesigned in 2003. It no longer looks like the spa in the picture. Kind of a mirror image since the lounge was moved to the opposite side. The new Hot Spring Highlife model retains the design of the old Sovereign in the picture, but it is ... read more
