How to Transform Your Regular Bath into a DIY Whirlpool Bath



It’ll come as no surprise that we think everyone should have a luxury whirlpool bath in their home.

But what happens if you haven’t quite got the budget for an all-new whirlpool or spa bath? Well, you’ll be happy to hear that there is in fact another option. Using a whirlpool & spa DIY kit, you can actually transform an existing ‘regular’ bath into a soothing and relaxing whirlpool bath. Even better, you can do it all at home yourself without a professional to help. Want to know more?

Minimum DIY skills required

When we first mentioned the DIY factor above, you may justifiably started to wonder if you have the skills to do this yourself. Well, all of the whirlpool bath DIY kits we sell require only the most basic DIY skills to complete. Depending on the particular kit you choose to buy, all you’ll need to do is be able to drill a few holes into the shell of your existing bath. For most modern baths, this is a thin layer of fibreglass, so all you’ll need to get the job done is a hole-saw – available from any of the big hardware chains in the UK and online.

Whirlpool baths at home for everyone 

So what exactly does a DIY whirlpool bath kit look like? Well, you have a few options in front of you. First and foremost, you’ll need to decide how many jets you’d like in your new bath. We offer kits with 6, 8, or 10 jets. The one you choose is really down to personal preference – and just how bubbly you’d like your future baths to be! In each kit, you’ll receive broadly the same pieces, usually including: self-draining pump, various pipes, jets, suction inlet, as well as the air speed and on/off controls. All of this comes with in-depth instructions to make the process easy.

Ready for real luxury at home?

One of the great things about these DIY whirlpool & spa bath kits is that they’re much more cost-effective than an all-new bath. In some cases, these kits can be just 10% of the price of a full bath. Having said that, you won’t have the same range of options as you would with a brand new whirlpool bath. Even so, this is a super cost-effective way to bring a relaxing and luxury whirlpool bath experience into your very own home. Another key benefit is that it’s often much quicker and easier to install a kit yourself than to rip out your old bath and install an all-new one. This is really about balance and which option suits your bathroom best.
