Welcome to our Whirlpool bathtubs page, where you can find the tub that will melt your worries away anytime you need it. Whirlpool bathtubs are an upgrade from a traditional bathtub, because they have additional water jets that take your bath soak to the next level. The water jets can relax and massage your sore or tired muscles, making the whirlpool bathtub a therapeutic experience as well as a relaxing one. There are two main types of whirlpool tubs, called drop-in or alcove tubs.
Even though they are slightly more expensive than the alcove type, our drop-in whirlpool bathtubs are a luxurious addition to your bathroom. They are built into the bathroom, on an elevated platform, a corner, against a bathroom wall, or dropped into a spot on the floor. Drop-in whirlpool bathtubs are bigger than the alcove type of tub, some of them fitting 2 people! No matter what your decor, you can find the perfect one here, because we offer them in a variety of different shapes, sizes and materials.
Alcove whirlpool bathtubs are more like regular bathtubs, and they are generally found in a recessed part of the bathroom, or an "alcove". Alcove whirlpool bathtubs are smaller in size, created to fit regular bathroom measurements and they support the standard size fixtures. Because they require less customization to install in your bathroom, an alcove whirlpool bathtub will be a less expensive option than a drop-in whirlpool bathtub.
Whether you prefer the drop-in or alcove whirlpool tub, they are made of similar materials. Most of our models are crafted in fiberglass, acrylic, and some of our models are constructed of cast iron. When you are shopping for your whirlpool bathtub, remember to keep in mind the limitations of your bathroom. The cast iron models are especially heavy, but even fiberglass and acrylic can be very heavy, so make sure your floor can support the weight of your new whirlpool bathtub. Also, ascertain that you will be able to fit your new whirlpool bathtub through the doorways of your home, because there would be nothing more frustrating than getting your tub home and finding you can't fit it through the door. Now that you have all your ducks in a row for your whirlpool bathtub, we wish you a happy shopping experience at Simply Bathtubs!
