hot tub jets and air bubbles
whirlpool tub Whirlpool tubs, also known as jetted tubs, are essentially bathtubs that feature a number of therapeutic jets positioned around the sides of the tub.  A combination of air and water, or air alone, is forced through the jets and produces a massaging action.  There are usually four to eight jets in a whirlpool tub, and they are often positioned to target certain areas of the body such as the neck, back, and arms.  Smaller jets may be positioned in areas that target more sensitive parts of the body, like feet.  The jets are normally able to open, close, and swivel, allowing the user to adjust pressure and flow.

Whirlpool tubs are widely recognized for the health benefits of their hydrotherapy action, including muscle relaxation, improved blood circulation, and increased skin oxygenation.  After a long day at work — or working out — a whirlpool bath can be an ideal solution to relieve tense and aching muscles!  However, these tubs may not be suitable for the elderly, young children, and people with certain medical conditions.

Whirlpools vary in size, holding anywhere from 25 to 150 gallons of water.  In addition to safety features like built-in grab bars and slip-resistant floors, whirlpools come with a whole host of feature options, such as underwater lighting and integrated stereo systems.  Whirlpool bathtubs range in price from affordable to extravagant, based upon their size, features, and options.
