Skid Packs are a relatively new innovation to spas and hot tubs. These kits are designed to make maintaining and caring for your hot tub easier and time efficient. Previously, spa owners had a difficult time trying to decide which support equipment would fit their spa. Often equipment would not connect because of different sized connectors or an incompatible design. Placing these mismatched pieces together can, more often than not, result in a mess. Luckily spa manufacturers have recognized these difficulties and have come up with a solution to this problem.
In order to make this process easier for hot tub and home spa owners, a number of manufacturers began producing kits specially designed for certain hot tub and spa models. Basically, skid packs are designed to take the risk out of buying spa equipment . Skid packs provide components that are electrically and hydraulically matched. These packs are best suited for spas with a capacity up to 800 gallons. If you have a larger spa, you will probably need to purchase your support equipment piece by piece in order for the system to operate effectively.
