I'll be installing (*I*
, meaning my husband....hee!) some sort of whirlpool
tub when we remodel our bathroom. I'm trying to decide what to buy. I need
to do an alcove installation (60" length) and my head is imploding with all
the options. I think Jacuzzi brand whirlpool tubs have hideous "skirts"
that are discolored and flimsy but I like the chrome jet trim kits you can
get. American standard jet tubs have less jets, no trim kits (that, to me,
leave the tub looking unfinished), and I ran across BainUltra AIR tubs in a
specialty store recently. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they
didn't produce a measly, effervescent, alka seltzer effect, but real WHOOSH!
I liked the coated acrylic, cleanliness (no water left in lines), heated
neck and back rests, ability to handle chick stuff like bath salts and oils
etc). I know I have to have an integrated skirt (bleh!) but some of them
are just WRONG.
Looks good on paper but wondered if anyone has had experience with these
kinds of tubs? Cant find much about the pros and cons on the web.
Thanks for any help....
