4 Crucial Questions to Ask When Buying a Whirlpool Bath


Buying a new whirlpool bath can be a pretty big decision, so it’s essential that you ask all the right questions before taking the plunge. This can, however, be more easily said than done – especially when you’re not sure exactly which questions to ask. In that spirit, we’ve collected up four of the most important questions you should ask before settling on your new tub. So, without further ado, let’s dive right in!

Question 1: How will you actually use your whirlpool bath? 

This might sound like a strange question to ask; after all, you just use a bath to take a bath… right? While that is true, there are other factors to consider. For example, the amount you’ll use your whirlpool bath may influence your total budget for it. If you’ll be taking daily indulgent soaks, it might be worth splashing out a bit more. Likewise, the practicalities or getting in and out of the bath may factor into which bath you buy, with many assisted bathing options already available on the market.

Question 2: Do you have enough space for your chosen whirlpool bath? 

It’s easy to be enamoured by the design and features of a whirlpool bath without actually considering its dimensions. To avoid the disappointment of realising your chosen bathtub won’t fit in your bathroom, it’s highly recommended that you measure the available space in your bathroom carefully. Compare these dimensions with those listed on any of our whirlpool baths and you can rest assured that the whirlpool bath you select will fit comfortably into your bathroom. Don’t worry, even if space is at a premium, you could still try out a space-saving corner whirlpool bath.

Question 3: Can you “futureproof” your new bath with some added extras?

There’s no doubt that whirlpool baths are a long-term investment, which is why it’s key that you’re happy with the choices you make. With this in mind, many people decide to add a little extra something to their tub with extras such as chromotherapy mood lighting, or even built-in speakers. Additions like this can quickly turn your whirlpool bath experience to the next level, and are especially recommended for those who’ll be regularly indulging in whirlpool bathing. Check out just some of the available extras now.

Question 4: How will you manage regular whirlpool bath maintenance? 

Unfortunately, technology hasn’t quite reached the level of self-cleaning whirlpool baths just yet. But fear not: whirlpool bath maintenance doesn’t have to be a headache. In fact, with the right tools and products at your disposal, keeping your whirlpool bath in showroom condition can be easier than you might think. Here at The Whirlpool Bath Shop, we offer a variety of products and equipment to keep things ticking over, including sanitising tablets which you simply pop into the water after you’re done bathing to the keep the pipework spick and span. We also offer replacement parts for all of the essential workings of your new tub, so you’ll never be without a fully operational whirlpool bath for too long.

 If you’ve already asked all of the questions above and you’re ready to take the plunge on a new whirlpool bath, call our friendly team anytime.
