Typically a flat and level concrete pad at least 4ā€³- 6ā€³ thick depending on the weight load of the vessel itself. Alternatively, our vessels can be individually customized to suit various installation scenarios such as suspended, cantilevered, secured to structural beams and other load-bearing engineered surfaces.


With a wide range of different styles and options available, we are sure to offer a vessel for nearly every budget. We encourage our clients to compare our products with similarly sized concrete, plastic and acrylic vessels; considering the longevity of stainless steel, a Bradford pool or spa is a wise investment.

All Bradford pools and spas have been engineered and built for permanent outdoor, in-ground and year-round installations. The stainless steel shell, frame and tile will not warp, crack, blister or deteriorate due to prolonged exposure to sun, heat, snow, or cold. These are vessels for all seasons.

Stainless steel is virtually indestructible. The structural integrity of our engineered spa designs allows Bradford to offer an unprecedented 25-year warranty on the spa shell. The integral spa stainless steel frame supports the entire vessel without the need for any backfill or extra bracing. They are designed to be fully self-supporting and provide excellent strength-to-weight ratios.

Maintenance & Care

Yes. Stainless steel is nonporous and can be wiped clean with a mild detergent. It also provides an effective barrier against the buildup of bacteria, black spot, mildew and other germs which can stain surfaces like concrete, acrylic, fiberglass and vinyl liners. This unique property is exactly why stainless steel is utilized in everything from commercial kitchens to specialized sterile hospital equipment.


We use a proprietary method to adhere the tile to the stainless steel surfaces. This two-part, epoxy-based adhesive was developed specifically for stainless steel, which allows us to provide a 5-year guarantee against tile delamination.

Bradford Products uses only the finest grade US-milled stainless steel: surgical quality 316L or 304L stainless steel. ā€œLā€ signifies low carbon content, which, in turn, means steel with superior resistance to staining and corrosion.
