We recently noticed that many of our bestselling tubs in 2020 and the beginning of 2021 were freestanding jetted tubs designed for two people. With people spending more time in their homes than ever before, and stress levels at all-time highs, recreating a relaxing spa experience at home is more desirable than ever. A jetted tub designed to accommodate two people is a great choice for creating a romantic spa-like sanctuary in the comfort of your home. In addition, the therapeutic benefits of whirlpool hydrotherapy make a jetted tub - like a whirlpool bathtub or air bubble tub - a smart investment in your family’s health and well-being.
Installing a spacious jetted tub with high end features, like chromotherapy lighting and a built-in sound system, is also a cost-effective way for real estate investors in the vacation rental and luxury home markets to increase property value. Deluxe master bath fixtures such as premium whirlpool bathtubs are highly valued by renters of vacation properties in addition to luxury home buyers.
Also referred to as Jacuzzi tubs, whirlpool tubs with water jets are the most common type of jetted tub in American homes. Sought-after by homeowners since the late 1960s, whirlpool tubs provide a way to massage tired muscles via high-pressure streams of water pumped through strategically placed jets.
Air bubble tubs, also known as air tubs or air jetted whirlpool tubs, use an air blower motor to release tons of tiny, heated air bubbles into the bath water via small ports in the bottom of the tub. These small tingling air bubbles provide gentle, low-pressure massage to many areas of your body.
Both types of jetted tubs provide soothing hydrotherapy. Air tubs are best for those who want to use bath oils and salts which can clog hydro jets (aka water jets). They are also typically less expensive than water jetted tubs. As with water jetted whirlpool tubs, both single person and two-person models are available. Air tubs large enough to accommodate two persons should be approximately three feet wide (or wider).
Whirlpool tubs which utilize water jets, on the other hand, are a better option for bathers who require a deeper, more vigorous, targeted muscle massage. And because the direction of the tub’s jets can be controlled - swiveled in various directions to target specific areas of the body - a water jetted whirlpool tub offers a more customizable and therapeutic hydrotherapy experience.
Dual therapy tubs are another jetted tub option offered by some manufacturers. These tubs have both an air blower motor and hydro jets, allowing the bather to enjoy the dual sensations of effervescent air bubbles and targeted massage via pressurized water.
