If you do get one, make sure you run it periodically. Unless you want to see the nasty [email protected] that comes out of it after the water has sat in the jet/hoses for a year!
Also install adequate access to the pump/plmbg. Nothing like having to tear apart your tub surround or cut a hole in the ceiling below to fix it.
Around here, it is part of the building code to have EASY access thru an access panel NEAR the motor.
It also helps to fill the tub with water just above the jets and put some bleach in it to get rid of all the crappy buildup in the lines. Do this about once a month at least!

I wouldn't put one in if you gave it to me. I'm doing 3 big showers in mine.
Prior boats - (3) X14's, (3) Prostars, and a Tristar.

Look at the Ultra brand. I have had one for 5 years plus. No problems.

This tub does NOT circulate water thru the jets, instead, in brings in heated air from the room and sends in thru the many jets. This will circulate the water. The advantage is that you DO NOT HAVE WATER SITING IN THE PIPES AND JETS when you are finished. As a result no mold or nasty water.

Ultra is $$$$, but worth it.
