Frequently Asked Questions About Our Freestanding Baths and Services


Many homeowners will rethink their entire house before ever considering the bathroom. Renovations in the kitchen, lounge, and living room are common, while bathroom upgrades are often neglected. Your bathroom, however, is the landscape in which you retire for the day. Here, you relax and wash away the stresses of the world. This haven ought to look and feel tranquil and relaxing. Those who do decide to redo their bathrooms find that one quick way to transform the entire space is to install a freestanding tub. Freestanding baths are much more aesthetically pleasing to the eye and add luxury to any space. If you are considering such a product but have a few questions, below we answer some common queries we receive from our clients.

Why Are Freestanding Baths Better Than Standard Tubs?

Alcove, or recessed, tubs are the standard bath to which most individuals are accustomed. These products are enclosed by a wall on three sides, and often fit neatly into one corner of a bathroom. While alcove tubs are ideal for bathrooms lacking in space, larger bathrooms may benefit from strategically placed freestanding baths. Not only does the design add depth and interest to the room by drawing the eye in, but it also makes use of negative space and may even make the room seem more spacious. If you need style, elegance, and luxury, then freestanding baths introduce all three.

What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy uses the power of water (both internally and externally) for therapeutic treatment purposes. Water’s resistance, pressure on the body, various forms such as steam or ice, as well as overall temperature all have an effect on several functions in the human body. In terms of jetted baths and spas, strong jets use aerated water to massage the body without damaging the skin, joints, and muscles. Hydrotherapy in this form accelerates healing, soothes pain and inflammation, and relaxes muscles because it rapidly improves circulation.

Cold-water hydrotherapy brings swelling and inflammation down by sending blood away from the surface of the skin. Hot-water hydrotherapy causes blood vessels to dilate, boosting circulation, activating the sweat glands, and helping tissue to get rid of waste.

Our range of water jets (such as our shiatsu micro jets) deliver an incredibly powerful, deeply penetrative massage. These jets are ideal for anyone recovering from injuries or suffering from chronic pain.

What Services Does Summer Place Offer?

Here at Summer Place, we have no need to rely on imported parts. We invest in our own customised tooling for jets, suctions, switches, pumps, and other fittings. This means you will never struggle to find spare parts, and each locally produced product is far more cost-effective. We want you to enjoy your model for years to come, without any fuss. This is why we also run full-time service teams that will help you with maintenance and repairs on your Summer Place product.
