Differences between spa pools and tubs

A jetted bath is a body of water that includes jets for hydro massaging. The tub is usually placed indoors and used for daily cleansing, relaxation, and hydrotherapy. It can accommodate one or two persons, depending on the shape and size. It offers a whirlpool experience, making every bathing session an opportunity to wash, relax and experience pain relief, improved blood flow, and more oxygen in the blood, as well as gentle massaging of selected points.

If you suffer from chronic muscle pain or perhaps arthritis, you’ll want one of our jetted baths for your home. See examples of our whirlpool jetted baths.

Spa pools can be heated or cold. These are for in-ground or deck placement and offer seating for two or more persons. These units have acrylic shells which ensure that once heated, the water stays warm for a considerable time. The units often come with jets for a whirlpool effect and relaxing hydrotherapy.

The seating is moulded for optimal comfort, enabling you to enjoy a water relaxation session with friends or family members. See our range here.
