Traditional vs. Jetted Bath Tubs

Your tub is a focal point for your bathroom and getting the right one will make all the difference to enjoying your new space to the full! Here’s a quick guide from our plumbing supplies specialists in New Jersey on how to choose the right option.

Pros and Cons of Traditional Soaking Tubs 

These are the classic tubs and come in a wide range of sizes, shapes and styles. You can choose between a freestanding tub or a built-in version and it’s easy to find one that fits your style and budget, whether you want a deep, elegant claw bath or a shallower, modern tub for a small space. The downside? The don’t offer any features beyond their different appearances – and while some people like the simplicity and often affordability of a traditional soak, others want a more feature-rich experience.

Pros and Cons of Jetted Tubs 

Jetted tubs offer a more exciting yet spa-like experience that many people feel is the ultimate way to relax and unwind. They are also great for use in certain health or physical therapy regimens, and their massage-like qualities are ideal for sore muscles and joints. There are a wide range of jetted tubs, including whirlpool and air tubs, all in different sizes and shapes to suit your space. So, what’s the downside? Usually, these tubs come with a much bigger price tag than traditional tubs. They are more difficult – and therefore more expensive – to install and the extra features can really push your budget to the limit. They are generally larger than traditional tubs, so they use more water, take longer to fill and you’ll need enough space to comfortably accommodate it. Their jets and tubes require careful cleaning as well and can become home to bacteria and mold if neglected.
