Wright Spa Hornby Superstore Spa pool specialists now open in Hornby One of the city’s most well-known businesses, Wright Spa Pools of Ferrymead, has just opened a new branch in Hornby. Located at 20 Carmen Road, the premises formerly occupied by Hampton Motor Cycles is conveniently close to their client base, co-owner Matt Lowe says. “We service the mid-Canterbury area, and with the growth of the Lincoln, Rolleston and Selwyn areas, we saw this site as ideal for the expansion of our business.” The premises are almost three times the size of the family-owned business’ Ferry Road site, where they were running out of space, and are “as close as they could get to a purpose-built site”. Established in 1978, and trading on Ferry Road since 1991, Wright Spa Pools specialises in the world’s number one selling spa pools, the US-manufactured Hot Spring spa pools. “These Hot Spring spa pools are unique in that all models are fully insulated, unlike other spa pools on the market, and this makes them the most energy-efficient spa pools in the world,” Matt says. Models at the higher end of the range incorporate the latest technology, utilising the ACE Salt Water sanitising system, that works on real diamond electrodes to generate softer, cleaner water. Offering a range of less expensive models as well, Wright Spa Pools caters for all budgets and requirements. A new top-end line that has just been introduced is the Endless Swim Spa, which provides a smooth and consistent current for swimming against, with options including an underwater hydraulic treadmill. “These are the number one swim spas in the world,” Matt says. “Unlike most swim spas that use jets to move the water, the Endless Swim Spa provides a current like a river, creating a more natural flow.” Designed to offer therapeutic benefits, this spa is ideal for low-impact exercise and is a cost-effective alternative to a swimming pool, he says. Endless Swim Spas are also easy to maintain, the water temperature can be adjusted at the push of a button, and they can be moved. Spa pool prices range from $5,990 right up to $100,000 - those considering purchasing one are invited to “try before they buy” at the showroom. “People can come in with their family and test out the different models. A spa pool is a major investment, so clients need to be sure they choose the right one for them,” Matt says. “We will also do on-site visits if they are not sure of the best place to install it.” Wright Spa Pools provides a full delivery and installation service, and after-sales support. “We don’t just drop off the spa pool, we set it up and explain how to operate it.” To complete the outdoor lifestyle experience, Wright Spa Pools has a range of Bull barbeques, also imported from the US. Like the Hot Spring spa pools, they are manufactured to the highest standard and are built to last. Wright Spa Pools Hornby is owned and operated by brothers Matt and Jeff Lowe. Their team of friendly sales and service professionals are ready to discuss your spa pool requirements and help you make the right choice. The team members are sales manager Nick Davies, sales professionals Joe Bergman, Jess Ledgerwood and Ashley Davies and service and installation specialists Shane Hamilton and Scott Sutherland.
