Spa baths can help transform any bathroom into a calming, sanctuary-like space that’s completely unique and adaptable to the needs of each and every user. ‘But how?’ you might ask. It’s a question we’re asked frequently here at Whirlpool Bath & Spa Co.

With that in mind, here we share some of the daily Q&As we have with our customers to help inform your journey to owning your dream spa bath.

Q: What is a spa bath?

A: A spa bathtub refers to any bath that’s fitted with jets. Spa baths will include jets, a pump and a pump control that direct streams of water – with various levels of intensity – to provide a massage effect.

Q: Can any bath be made into a spa bath?

A: Yes. At Whirlpool Bath & Spa Co we offer a bespoke service, which means in addition to our extensive choice of bathtub products – from corner whirlpool baths, to whirlpool shower baths, and freestanding whirlpool baths – you can choose your own, and have jets, lights and even a speaker system fitted by our team.

Q: A spa bath with a speaker?

A: Yes! Bath Sound turns a whirlpool bath into a giant speaker. This sophisticated piece of technology converts your chosen bath into a unique piece of audio equipment, with superb sound quality. The Bath Sound system produces crystal clear sound, and it can also be heard underwater, through the bubbles of the whirlpool. Simply connect any smart device via Bluetooth and stream directly – it’s perfect for contributing to a relaxing ambience.

Q: Can a spa bath have lights?

A: It can. Our Chromo Relax LED package draws on the benefits of healing through light, with the high spec low energy ultra-bright COLOUR STOP lighting system allowing you to enjoy a myriad of changing colours. From a warm sunset to a soothing azure pool, or the glow of a sunny afternoon – it promotes pure relaxation.

Q: Do spa baths offer hydrotherapy?

A: Our 12 Jet Flush Air Spa features 12 chrome flush air spa jets fitted into the base of the bath, giving a high quality contemporary smooth finish. The 12 powerful jets deliver streams of air, gently invigorating and working seamlessly with the whirlpool jets to provide a relaxing and rejuvenating hydrotherapy massage. Users can even tailor the intensity to combat fatigue and muscle discomfort in a way that works best for them. When we say the spa bath experience is completely customisable, we really mean it.

Q: What are the benefits of hydrotherapy?

A: Using water jets as a form of physical therapy dates back to the 1940s. The combination of warm water and massage jets found in a whirlpool bath can lead to improved circulation and relief of muscle aches, cramps, and insomnia.

Q: Are spa baths worth the investment?

A: We believe that bathrooms are spaces for relaxation. The inclusion of a whirlpool bath system offers an element of luxury to help create a spa-like experience in your home. The combination of the warm water, lights and massage jets in a whirlpool bath help to relieve tension and stress in the body. A customisable, bespoke design will ensure your whirlpool bath becomes not only the focal point of your interior scheme, but the highlight of your families day-to-day.
