By Kevin Taylor

So you're building the bath of your dreams but find the prices you have been quoted for the Whirlpool Bath way out of your budget.

Go online and save by buying direct from a Whirlpool tub distributor. Here's how. (more information at

There are three choices in Whirlpool baths;

1) Hydrotherapy - Jetted Water Whirlpool Baths

2) Air Bubble - Heated Air bubbles distributed over entire body

3) Combo - Both Hydrotherapy and Heated Air functions combined

Hydrotherapy is the more traditional Whirlpool you have probably experienced. It is great for relaxing muscles, lowering blood pressure, and relieving stress. It is however a hazard to young children and adults with medical conditions, in which case the more gentle Air Bubble Whirlpool bath is suitable.

The Combo gives both whirlpool choices but at an additional cost of course.

Two key factors in choosing your whirlpool are fit and fit;

1) Fit - Whirlpool bath suits your body and ease getting in and out

2) Fit - getting the Whirlpool bath into your house and bathroom!
