Most people associate whirlpools with large indoor bath or a Jacuzzi which is more commonly known as a hot tub spas. Hot Tubs are generally outdoor holds 4 or more people, with hydro jets and air jets, the water would have a treatment system and is heated 24/7. Jacuzzi is a brand name like hoover is to Vacuums.
But what if I told you that it’s possible for you to have your very own whirlpool air spa bath inside your house. A Spa bath is a bath shell with hydro jets and air jets put onto your bath does not require daily chemicals and is normally placed in your bathroom. The luxury of a whirlpool spa bath is now more affordable than you might have first thought.
THE DEEP CLEAN
You will have to do a deep clean with a liquid or powder cleaner once a month following instruction carefully.
If you clean with the sanitising tablets and deep cleaning liquid regularly you'll not have do clean under the jets remove the covers and drains to get a supper clean bath. If the Bath is really dirty or hasn't been cleaned in a long time it is recommended.
I have seen whirlpool blog cleaners suggesting dishwasher tablets and this is not recommended by manufactures because this could cause skin irritations if its not rinsed out properly. This should also be noted for using bleach in the bath, if you have sensitive skin conditions this could really cause skin issues as your pours open when using the bath.
Can you use a bubble bath in whirlpool tubs?
Regular bubble baths are a bad idea, think of a foam party in your bathroom......
Will the foam damage the bath? It wont damage the shell of the bath but if the foam gets into the electric it can cause issues, and break the bath. also be noted that as it is advised against using bubble bath in whirlpool and air spas baths it may invalidate your warranty.
So what can be used in a whirlpool spa bath? Looking for low foam product are best if you must use bathing products but remember these can cause build up of soap scum in the pipes, and will need the sanitising tablets to remove the scum. This can be applied to most of bath bombs ( just remember the first time your bath was stained by a bath bomb) , with essential oils bath salts. The bath may need a deep clean after these products and a major clean.
Epsom salts - are safe but you need to look at the side of the bottles to make sure it is compatible for jetted systems, as they may contain oils that are not suitable. In General the pure ones are safe.
There are manufactures out there that supply whirlpool or jetted friendly products that are safe and easily removed from the tub. They have low foam bubble bath salts, bath milks, and they smell amazing.
