Does the OASIS seal on the tub?

The OASIS replaces the conventional cover and seals over spas tightly to eliminate any water or chemical evaporation. The tight seal locks in heat and locks out cold to reduce costs related to heating the spa by up to 30%. The OASIS has the highest R Value in the industry with an R-21 insulation value.

Does the OASIS freeze in the winter?

No. With the form fitting Winter Kit on each of the legs the unit will be able to operate year round. A brief annual maintenance is required before the cold weather to ensure lubrication is sufficient to deal with the cold.

How much snow can the OASIS hold?

The OASIS has a snow load capacity of 600lbs when in the down position and can lift its weight plus 200lbs of snow on the roof structure.

What is the wind rating on the OASIS?

The OASIS is rated to withstand 40mph (64kph) while in the up position and upwards of 80mph (128kph) in the down position.

How long will the OASIS last?

With the warranty of 10 years on the structure the OASIS will last the life of your tub.

What is the cover on the OASIS made of and will it absorb water?

Content Both the outer and inner shell of the OASIS is made of ABS which is non-permeable and will NOT absorb any water. Polyurethane foam is used as insulator, and its structure will NOT allow for water absorption.

Is the OASIS certified?

Yes, the OASIS is UL certified in Canada and in the United States as well as ASTM certified.

Will the OASIS ever collapse?

No. Because of the “positive up” design and the fact our lift system is compressed 60 lbs. per jack, the legs of the OASIS are designed to always want to go up. The motor is there to force them down, and, therefore there is no chance of the OASIS coming down unexpectedly.

Will the OASIS stop if something is blocking its path?

The OASIS operates similarly to that of a car window where all control and responsibility is in the hands of the key holder. The OASIS will automatically stop with the release of the key.

Can the OASIS be lifted by a child or intruder?

It is impossible to lift the OASIS off the spa once it is fully down and the key is removed. The OASIS locks in place.

Can the cover be opened and closed manually?

Yes, it can. Please see "Manual cover opening/closing procedure" in the user manual, as in the case of a power outage.
