Bathtubs are considered to be the ultimate choice for bathroom luxury. However, contrary to common belief, bathtubs are now affordable for most homeowners. Bathtubs are now available in many different types and forms. Whirlpool bathtubs can certainly be a worthwhile addition to your bathroom if you are looking for something that provides a soothing effect to your tired bodies and sore muscles. Whirlpool tubs are equipped with jets located strategically to message different parts of our body by pushing air or/and water at high pressure. It is a known fact now that these bathtubs can improve blood circulation and provide relief from pain, muscle aches, and stress. The only downside of Whirlpool bathtubs is that they require frequent cleaning and maintenance.
Ideally, a whirlpool bathtub should be installed during the home’s construction so that all electrical, civil, and plumbing requirements are met. Always consult an electrical and plumbing contractor before deciding to replace your existing bathtub with a whirlpool bathtub.
Water jets and air jets are two major types of whirlpool bathtubs. A combination of water and air-jet is also offered by some of them. Water jet whirlpool tubs have multiple jets spraying water at a high speed resulting in a refreshing massage at different parts of the body. Do not use aromatherapy oils or bath salts because the tub’s water is recycled by the jets. On the other hand, much smaller jets are found in air-jet whirlpool bathtubs. Pressure is created in the water by the air pushing out of the jets at a certain pressure, providing soft massage to the human body. Since there is no water flow through the jets, bath salts and aromatherapy oils can be used. Air jet whirlpool bathtubs should be your choice if you are looking for general relaxation or gentle massaging. However, opt for the water jet type if you are on the lookout for a therapeutic messaging experience.
Whirlpool tubs can be purchased in different configurations and sizes. Depending on the size and shape of your bathroom you may opt for a square, rectangular, oval, heart shaped, or diamond shaped whirlpool bathtub. Fiberglass, cast iron, and acrylic are three of the most common materials for the construction of whirlpool tubs. Acrylic should be your first choice because the material is light, easy to use and maintain, and extremely durable.
