purchasing and installing spa tub in bathroom?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
    • Hey everyone my wife bought me a pork belly to try to smoke and make bacon out of it. Does anyone have any advice i have never done one before. Sounds like your brine it for a while then smoke then let cool and slice. But it would be nice to hear from people that have done it.
