About Whirlpool Bathtubs

Adding a whirlpool bathtub to your bathroom is a smart idea. Not only  do jetted tubs make your bathroom look amazing; they make you feel  amazing, too. But if you've been shopping around for a whirlpool  bathtub, you may be a little overwhelmed by all the different features  and options. Here are some important facts to help you make the best  possible decision.

 

Luxury Clear Whirlpool Hot Spa

 

There  are many different sizes and configurations of whirlpool tubs. As long  as your bathroom is big enough to accommodate a regular bathtub, you  should be able to find a whirlpool tub that fits your space. Whirlpool tubs range in size from a standard tub size of about 30 x 60 inches to a  luxurious 80 x 60 inches. Obviously, you should measure the area in your  bathroom before you buy a jetted tub, but you also need to think about  configuration  the way the tub is oriented in the room. If you're short  on space, you will want a standard-sized tub in a freestanding,  single-person configuration to go directly into the space where your old  tub was. If you have a little more space to work with, you might  consider a corner unit with a surrounding deck. If space is not an  issue, consider a drop-in whirlpool tub.

While both types of  whirlpool tubs will provide a relaxing experience, depending on what  you're looking for, you may prefer one above the other. Air jet tubs  send warmed air through dozens of tiny jets to create a gentle air  bubble massage. Scented bath oils can be used in an air jet tub to  create a spa-like atmosphere. Water jet tubs have fewer but much larger  jets arranged in strategic configurations to target different muscle  groups. Water jets can be swiveled in different directions to target  specific muscles. Water is pumped in and then propelled out of the jets  at a high speed for a direct therapeutic muscle massage. Bath oils,  salts and bubble bath should not be used in a water jet tub.

The  most common whirlpool tub materials are fiberglass, acrylic and cast  iron. Fiberglass is the most economical choice. Acrylic and cast iron  are both extremely durable and easy to clean. Consult your budget when  deciding which material to choose.
