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

    •     They were in all different stages on this lake, was messed up and I didn't know what was going on
    • Good Borch!   I have seen a large up tick of birds locally as well this last.  Although not hunting.   Trying to convince the wife and kids to hit a time or two yet.
    • They can sure humble a person. 
    • Well I tagged out this morning.   I got out later as my daughter and her family were over so I headed out after breakfast.  I drove by the field to see if there were any there so I could plan a route to the blind.   There was a fl8cknof Jake's and a flock of longbeards.  I quickly snuck into my blind and stuck a funky chicken decoy out.  As I was stepping into the blind the Jake's start clearing the trees between the blind and them.  They worked around out front a ways.  Suddenly I see 2 toms fly into the field.  The jakes immediately charged the toms driving them out of the field.  After that the jakes saw the funky chicked and headed over to check it out.  With the toms gone and time dlipoung away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on rhe grill this summer.   Got in the blind at 10 am and was done by 10:15 am.  It's been a long season. 
    • Fun in the yak today in SE SD caught and released a bunch of these today:
    • How can a bird with brain the size of a pea out smart us!
    • The 2 lakes i bass fish have slowed way down the last week.   A swim-bait ripple shad was hot ticket for a while but that is just a pike attraction right now.  Been switching to a Senko and helped a little.   Pads are coming up fast now and we should see a spike up in activity soon.  Cannot wait to throw the frogs soon as that is the biggest rush watching those eruptions in the water!!   Thanks for posting as i found it to be quite slower than usual also.   Which means i need to find better ammo during those times.  
    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
