Whirlpool bath's, educate me a little.
I am looking for a 60x36 rectangular drop-in whirlpool bath for the new house and I need some advice. I am trying not to break the bank as truthfully, if this gets used once a week I would be surprised, so think cost effective. I want it to have 8 jets and I do not need top of the line.
That being said, we have looked at several models and of all places, Lowes had a nice Jacuzzi brand that was $748 with a 1hp motor and 8 jets but the guy in plumbing warned us against any brand other than WaterTech, pointing out that it is the only brand that is plumbed with schedule 40 pipe and that they come with a larger pump, generally 2hp. Obviously the price is reflective of the product and more than I care to spend on something that will rarely be used.
So, bring on the advice and keep me well under $1k while not having to rip the thing out in 2-3 years to replace it!
