Micro Bubble Tub
Soak in warm soothing bath filled with billions of micro sized bubbles. These oxygen-rich micro bubbles clean, exfoliate and moisturize your skin.
What is a Micro Bubble Tub?
A micro bubble tub uses a pump and an portal to infuse the bath water with millions of tiny bubbles. These bubbles super-saturate the water with up to 50% more dissolved oxygen than regular bath water. The bubbles are small enough to enter the skin's pores, removing impurities and providing oxygen. The bubbles also lightly caress the skin exfoliating it. The result is skin that is soft, supple and smooth.
Micro Bubble Spa Experience
Even though a Micro Bubble tub doesn't provide a deep tissue massage like a whirlpool bath or a soft tissue massage like an air tub, it does provide a spa experience. As billions of microbubbles quietly pop around the bather the energy they release also keeps bath water and body warm. It promotes relaxation by stimulating your skin, which has been known to improve sleep and leave your body feeling warm long after exiting the bath. A quiet spa experience to relax the body and mind while rejuvenating your skin. Using a micro bubble system 20 minutes a day will help to make your skin look and feel younger, improve collagen production, and help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
How does a Micro Bubble Tub Work?
A motor is used to produce the micro bubbles. They are injected into the tub through a jet like portal. A cloud of bubbles fills the tub turning the water a milky white. Any time a tub system has a motor, you need to be concerned about access. Murphy's Law suggests build access and it won't be needed -don't and the results may be very scary! Both MTI and Hydro Systems suggest an access of 16" x 14".
The list of options can be lengthy. Installation options like skirts, tile flanges and drain are covered in the article Bathroom Tub →
