Last week, we discussed three of the six steps to finding the right Jacuzzi® Bathtub for you. Today, we’ll explore additional steps to take to ensure you get the ideal model for your home:

 4. Select Your Bathtub Experience

What type of experience do you want to have when you relax in your bathtub? Jacuzzi offers a number of options for you to select from.

For the ultimate in relaxation, look into a Salon® Spa bathtub. This tub combines powerful jets and air bubbles to soothe your body and relax tired, tight muscles. Choose the Whirlpool for a hydromassage session—the massage these jets provide is one of the best things you can do for your body.

Another option is the Pure Air® Bath, which provides a gentle, soothing massage via warm air in hundreds of bubbles. This bathtub features 360-degree air inlets, giving you a full-body experience. Lastly, the Soaking bathtub is the perfect antidote to a long, busy day. Stretch out and take advantage of its ergonomic design. This bathtub allows a quiet, calm soak, so make sure you bring your favorite book in with you.

5. Decide on a Bathing Depth

From deep soaking to easy entry, deciding how much water you expect to use in your bathtub is an important factor to weigh. So, be sure to verify your hot water heater’s capacity. You can do that by finding the gallon amount on the Energy Guide tag located on the side of the unit itself or in your owner’s manual. This will help you ascertain whether your water heater can manage the volume your tub requires, allowing you to enjoy warm, soothing baths without overtaxing your unit.

6. Understand Your Faucet Options

If you’re on the market for a new bathtub, remember to consider your faucet choices. This can have a big influence on what type and size of bathtub will fit best in your space.

A floor-mounted faucet will add a unique touch, but you’ll need more room around the bathtub to install one, so take careful measurements. A wall-mounted faucet contributes to a sleek, modern look, and produces a longer water arch. This setup also leaves your bathtub with more surface space. On the other hand, should you have limited space around your tub, choosing to mount a faucet on the deck area may be your best option, as well as a more economical choice.
