Easy to install and maintain, Whirlpool baths are closer in reach than ever before.
Get the perfect Whirlpool bath for your home
A Jacuzzi bath is a touch of luxury for your home – something in which you could enjoy precious ‘me’ time, or something to make bath time fun for your children.
A warm water jet massage from a whirlpool bath offers great health benefits, and increased mental wellbeing. A whirlpool bath will stimulate circulation, relieve tension, massage skin tissues to help keep them supple and looking youthful, help to reduce stress and promote a good night’s sleep.
The thought of easing yourself into the bubbling water is a tempting one, but buying the right whirlpool bath for your home should, first and foremost, be a practical decision.
Here’s our guide to ensuring you get the right Whirlpool bath for you:
How will you be using your new bath?
If your Whirlpool bath is all about family bath time for the children, think about one of the larger baths like the Phoenix Rectangularo 7.

It also has underwater lighting for even more enjoyment, and an inline heater. It is made from acrylic, the reinforced version is named: Amanzonite, a durable carbon fibre underbody which will stand the test of time.
You could also look at a Phoenix asymmetric duo– 1700mm long, 800mm wide, and 420mmm deep – which is available in a range of attractive colours and with Vivo or Vivo Turbo whirlpool options.
If you want to relieve your aches and pains, or just ease away the stresses of the day, check out the Phoenix Marino, a double-ended Amanzonite bath - it’s your own personal spa in your bathroom! This unit is 1950mm long, 1350mm wide, and 480mm deep and has a capacity of 460 litres; that means plenty of room to stretch out your limbs. It also has directional jets and foot and back jets for the ultimate in bath-time relaxation.
What will fit in your home?
Measure your spaces carefully, especially if you’re renovating your bathroom and taking down walls.
Don’t forget to allow for any extra space needed for items like bath stands and access panels. It’s important to decide early on if you’ll need a double-ended bath, or if your whirlpool bath will just require one end to fit in your space.
Do you have a rectangular space in your bathroom which would be suitable for a standard-sized Jacuzzi bath, or do you have to contend with awkward shapes? Are you short on space?
For smaller rooms, you could look at the luxury Phoenix Salerno, an inset bath. Made from smooth acrylic, this rounded bath gives you flexibility in your interior design. It is 1650mm long by 1430mm wide and 460mm deep, and has a capacity of 405 litres. The Phoenix Salerno comes with a choice of three whirlpool and airpool systems and its optional extras include an inline heater and stunning underwater coloured lighting.
Would a smaller corner bath be a better option for your room?

Will your new bath fit through the door?
Not only will you need to check the basic dimensions of your doorway and the bath, you should also check whether it will need to be turned so it can be fitted, and whether you have enough space in your room to do that.
Could you re-think other bathroom elements to fit a larger Whirlpool bath?
Are you making the best use of your space at the moment, or are there areas of wasted space in your bathroom?
If so, you could send us some sketches of your space for advice. You may be able to move some items, or reduce their size, to help free up space for the larger whirlpool bath you’d love.

It also has the Subway oval bath at 1900mm long by 900mm wide. The whirlpool systems available include a choice between air and water nozzles.
Airpool vs whirlpool
What’s the difference? Whirlpool systems push water through jets into your bath, while airpool systems push air through instead to form the bubbles.
It’s all about your personal taste. Do you want more power in your system to work your muscles in the bath? Choose whirlpool. Do you want a more relaxing and gentle experience? Choose airpool.
Maintenance is generally simple with both options. Ensure you never run the whirlpool jets when the bath is empty. To clean, add a gentle cleaning solution to the water, empty and fill with clean water, then run the jets again.
Airpool systems are self-cleaning and self-drying. Just turn on the jets after you’ve had your bath.
What sort of acrylic bath should you choose?
Acrylic can be moulded into any shape, so it’s a versatile option for creative and contemporary bathroom designs.
It’s light, which is a boon for older homes where weights have to be carefully measured for baths in first floor bathrooms, for example. It’s also easy to clean, and is smooth yet non-slip.

What’s your price range?
It’s important that you set your budget for your bath to complement the budget for any bathroom make-over as a whole. If you’re simply installing a new bath, you’ll need to factor in installation, any new tiling needed, and any extra plumbing or wiring costs.
It’s worth getting your plumber or electrician to check the status of your wiring and plumbing before you start – now might be the perfect time to nip potential problems in the bud.
