Does anyone have a five foot corner whirlpool tub that comfortable
fits two (average size)? If so, what brand and model is it and are you
happy with it?
We are remodeling our bathroom and it's driving us nuts trying to
figure it out from the diagrams and it's difficult to track down where
the tubs are on display.
Thanks much in advance!

I think you will find that a bit tight. We have a four by six here
and that is comfortable. We are happy with it, but I can't remember
the name. A few things - as I recall we had our choice of fiberglass
or something else - a plastic finish of some kind. The "something
else" was a much harder finish and we picked that for its resistance
to scratching. Some friends we know went with fiberglass. Their tub
looks pretty bad now, but ours looks almost new. We did this about 12
years ago. Be sure you get at least 6 jets - more is better. There
should be a timer - and be careful. If you're alone, you can stay in
too long and find it almost impossible to get out. A warm whirlpool
bath apparently opens the blood vessels inducing a form of "shock".
FWIW: I have a 6' whirlpool tub, similar to the Infinity III. I barely
get enough hot water to fill it, and I have a 75 gallon hot water heater.
(Before anyone suggests it, I do not want to set the temperature
on the hot water heater higher because I don't want guests accidentally
scalded.) I'm now looking into getting a tankless heater that will
be dedicated to the tub.
I recommend that you try out the tub before you buy it.
Some are very uncomfortable. Also, consider an in-line heater
if you plan to soak for long periods of time.
