We are remodeling our master bath and pulled out the Jacuzzi brand whirlpool
tub and will probably replace it with a Sanijet pipeless whirlpool that has
no pipes to accumulate crud. Looks like an interesting product. Basically
each jet is a pump with the motor right behind the jet to spin it. In any
case I am thinking of reworking the surround which was basically a rectangle
of 2"x6" held up by vertical 2x6"'s. Manufacturer has no recommendations.
I was thinking of switching to 2"x4" on the front so it would be easier to
get into and on the sides to get a slightly longer tub. If anyone has a
whirlpool tub in their bathroom I was wondering if you could let me know how
wide your surrounds are. My wife doesn't like the idea because she says she
sometimes sits on the front ledge to do various things (like talk to me when
I can't hear her because I am in the shower). Thanks for any ideas on this.
