Moreover, the filtration acts as a self-protecting process that prevents build-up from sediments and minerals.

Right: It’s electric! The new AT200 LS SpaLet is designed for a completely automated experience with features that are easily adjustable. Of these lavish functions, the most notable include front and back spray cleaners, adjustable temperature and water settings, and a blue light that uses Plasmacluster technology to circulate air. Additionally, a soft atmospheric light frames the edges of the seat and bowl, creating an illuminating glow to guide users at night.
