Dual Jet Bath Spa Sharper ImageBathtubs are classified into four categories these days with each category being further divided based on the various types of tubs that fall in that category. The four categories are: built-in bathtubs, soaking bathtubs, freestanding bathtubs and special bathtubs. Built-in bathtubs are the most common types of tubs. They consist of Alcove and Drop-In bathtubs. The Alcove is the generally preferred and is one that can only be entered from on side (the front). Drop-in bathtubs are those that are mounted on a deck and require you to climb down into. Faucets, on this type of bathtub are situated on the deck.
Soaking bathtubs are as their name indicates, primarily meant for soaking. As such, they are built deeper and allow a person to soak right up to their chins. Since they are only meant for soaking they come without shower attachments or jets. Soaking bathtubs that are floor mounted are referred to as Roman bathtubs while those that are smaller in size and only accommodate people in the sitting position (with water up to their neck) are referred to as Greek bathtubs. Freestanding bathtubs are not attached, sunken or mounted on the floor. The faucets for such bathtubs can be fixed wherever convenient including a wall, the floor or even the sides of the bathtub itself. The two types of freestanding bathtubsavailable are clawfoot and pedestal bathtubs. Special bathtubs include such unusual units as whirlpool bathtubs, massage bathtubs, and walk-in bathtubs which are specially designed for older people or those with handicaps. Whirlpool bathtubs provide you with multiple jets that create a pleasurable and comfortable experience while massage Dual Jet Bath Spa Sharper Image come fitted with holes in the sides and at the bottom to allow air bubbles to enter the hot water.
