purchasing and installing spa tub in bathroom?

9 posts in this topic

Well, like many people that build a new house we made a mistake and did not put in a spa tub. As we enter our 40s we realize how nice it would be to have a tub with jets.

I measured our current tub and it is 58.5 inches long, 32 inches across and 19 inches deep.

We would like to put in a tub with a wrap around with a shower like our current tub. When we went to a store to see what they had they had very few - -like one tub that was meant to be used as a spa / shower deal.

The others have to be tiled and I am not interested in that.

Any thoughts?

am I missing something?

ANY AND ALL THOUGHTS, please.

Thanks

Are you saying you're looking for a one piece tub/shower with whirlpool or jacuzzi type jets? If so, I've never seen one. I have seen and installed a few five foot tubs with jets to replace a conventional tub. I imagine you could purchase a surround kit if you didn't want to spend the money on tile. Personally, I don't care for the surround kits. Another option that I've seen is instead of tile or a surround, use a product called Corian. I've seen it installed in showers, too, in place of tile.

Buy a Hot Tub and put it outside. The wife uses ours nightly.

Good Luck,

Mike

There are plenty of jetted tubs that you can add a shower surround to.

Problem is finding one that fits in your RO.

Another option is to buy and install a jet kit for your existing tub.

What fun is it to have a jetted tub that only one person can fit in?

Good point Tom.

It would be as crowed as two people in one sleeping bag.

Sometimes thats OK though.

One benefit is you would only need about 2 gallons of water to fill the tub.

Anyone ever look at the Grohe wall of water showers they are a pain in the behind to install abut 6-8hours to roughin the water pipe and shower valves but oh so nice to use.

Dahitman I just whent through my rouhin book and this one might work for you it's an American Standard Cambridge Whirlpool 60" lenghth 32" width and a little over 18" deep it has a apron I didn't check to see if they still carry it but it is the only one they offer that will replace a current style apron tub without going to a drop in style check it out we will see if they let the HSOforum fly www.americanstandard-us.com

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
