The popularity of whirlpool baths has risen in recent years. However, it is no surprise that many people still have no idea of what they are, a lot of people (including professionals and dealers who sell them) still incorrectly refer to them as Jacuzzis.
A Whirlpool is a small pool or bath that is uses hot water to relax the muscles, it can also be used to directly stimulate and / or relax the body muscles via the message system with the tub. The use of air bubbles with the hot water, simulates a massaging effect on the body as the small bubbles rub against your skin. This is also the reason why many people use foaming soap products in the tubs.
The quality of the soap products that you use in your Whirlpool bath, will ultimately determine the effectiveness of the whole therapy. Greater relaxation and relief is experienced when more bubbles rub against your skin. This means that you should use a soap product that creates more foam and lasts longer. It will also mean that you will use less soap for the whole exercise, if you are using a better quality product.
Only for the Rich?
Many people assume that Whirlpool tubs are only used by wealthy members of society and that they are luxury items that the average person can’t afford. Most people who do not have the time for long bathing times, will even say that those who have them at home are lazy. This is mostly true as many people can’t afford the purchase price of these tubs or the after-sale service costs involved.
The power consumption of these tubs is another concern for many people, who may not be able to afford large electricity bills. This problem is made even worse in places where the authorities have implemented power rationing. This is also a problem for those living in areas where electricity costs are very high.
There are, however, some people who have invented ways to overcome the challenge of high power consumption. They have found other ways of heating the water used in whirlpool baths, such as heating the water before it gets to the tub. This means that the tub’s heating system will only be used to maintain the water temperature. This innovation saves a reasonable amount of power.
Although the tubs are growing in popularity among members of the general public, very few dealers are willing to stock them. If you consider the number of units that they are able to sell in a day, you will understand the reason why they are not necessarily good for business. Dealers require an item to be sold quickly and not stay on the shelves for a long time. This means that they will receive a return on their investment sooner, rather then later, and that the item prices will not fluctuate while the item is in stock.
It is however, possible to order the tubs from several online dealers. This is an easy way of transacting, both for the client and the sellers. Although the cost may be high due to shipping costs, you will have a quality guarantee for the product.
