Explore Jacuzzi® Jetted Tubs from Aquatic, Hydro Systems, Hydro Massage, Jacuzzi®, MTI and Neptune
A whirlpool bathtub (also referred to as a jacuzzi or jetted tub) provides a deep tissue massage.
Water is pulled from the bath, passes through the pipes, and back into the tub through a jet. The water moves quickly - like white water rapids. Whirlpool tubs provide the most vigorous form of massage due to the water speed and whirlpool jet location. The jets target specific muscle groups. Some whirlpools allow you to control the jet power, direction or both. To customize your whirlpool you can add an in-line heater that will maintain the temperature of water within a few degrees of what it was poured at for as long as the whirlpool is running. There are other fun features or options that can be added to the tub like chromatherapy lighting. Each tub line we carry will have a list of options offered. Whirlpools differ from Air tubs in many ways. See Spa Tub for more information.
All the manufacturers carried by Tubz.com do not use a pipe system that can hold water.
In the past few years whirlpools have received a bad reputation. Originally the pipes were made from flexible hosing that could bow down due to heat and time. The water would never fully drain from the pipes. When the tub was used again black crud would come out of the jets. The tubs we carry have piping that will not bow down. We have a blog article that explains more: Are Whirlpool Tubs Clean?

- Our article Bathroom Tub gives thoughts on the different things to consider like installation styles, tub size and options.
Whirlpool Jet Placement
The term Jacuzzi® is often used as a generic term for whirlpool jets. Jacuzzi® does offer great jet locations, but general jet location is the topic of this section.
Some bathers just want the water to move in a whirlpool fashion - spinning the water around the tub. This is the job of the side jets so a bath with 6 jets - 3 on each long side is perfect.
Other bathers are looking for a massage for a specific muscle set whether it be foot, hips or back. Hips and leg massage need the side jets pictured above. For a foot massage, jets can be added to the drain end or with a center drain tub - the second set of back jets can be used for the feet of a single bather.
For those that suffer from back pain - back jets become the most important.
The Jacuzzi® Fuzion pictured above is a center drain tub with two back rests. Since the back jets are different on each back rest, you can decide which side - which massage by how you sit in the tub.
Number of Whirlpool Jets
The number of jets and size of motor(s) are also important factors to consider.
When it comes to jet number, it is not necessarily the more the merrier. The whirlpool motor's power is divided between the jets. A smaller motor can handle 6 jets nicely with decent power to each jet. Now double the jets to 12 but keep the same motor, the jets now have 1/2 the strength they did before. Increase the motor power and the 12 jets are back to strong. Our whirlpool companies are the best in the industry. They provide the perfect balance between jet number and motor strength to provide the best whirlpool massage.
DriftBath - A Different Kind of Whirlpool
Aquatic DriftBath uses water jets but in a different way. Up to 70 ports in the back and foot areas of the bathtub release individual streams of water. Streams converge to create a single flowing motion that gently soothes your entire body. A soft current creates a blanket effect, rather than a vigorous swirl of air bubbles
