If you’re looking to add a touch of luxury to your home, a whirlpool tub can be the perfect addition for any bathroom. Whirlpool tubs can help you unwind after a long day- all within the convenience and comfort of your own home. Getting a whirlpool tub designed for two people can lead to a romantic or relaxing evening with that special someone. With all the different options out there, it can be difficult to choose the perfect whirlpool tub for 2 people. You will need to balance features, size, and of course, cost. In this article, we aim to remove the guesswork for you by proving our top recommendations for a 2-Person whirlpool tub!
To start our list is the BT-150150 tub from Mesa. This tub comes with two comfortable headrests- perfect for prolonged sessions in the tub. Additionally, the BT-150150 is built with LED lights that make for excellent mood lighting. Other features include a build in air-system, 9 whirlpool jets, and a stylish, ergonomic build. WIth all those great features, it’s easy to see why this is one of Mesa’s most popular whirlpool tubs!
Next on our list is the Mesa BT-0502 whirlpool tub with a wood skirt. This is one of our most popular whirlpool tubs and is loved for its savvy design and art-deco vibe. This whirlpool tub can quietly compliment the design of any bathroom- and that’s not even to mention its features! Apart from 2 ergonomic headrests, the BT-0502 is also built with dual air and hydrotherapy systems, dual controls, and dual motors. For lovers of excellent design, this should be at the top of your list!
The Mesa BT-084 (also called “The Fleetwood”) is similar to the first product we discussed on this list- but with a few key differences. One key difference is the positioning of the headrests. With the BT-084, the bathers are seated opposite of one-another. This is the most popular whirlpool tub from Mesa- and it’s clear to see why! Packed with 12 whirlpool, dual headrests, a moveable handheld shower, and a built in air system, it’s a wonder that this amazing tub is available for such a low price!
The final whirlpool tub to make our list is the AM156JDTZ tub from Ariel Platinum. This tub is a bit pricier than some of the other options on our list, but you really do pay for what you get when it comes to the AM156JDTZ tub. Equipped with an elegant LED chromotherapy lighting system and touch-sensitive LCD control panel, this whirlpool tub takes luxury to the next level. It comes with 22 massage jets, 6 massage modes, and 4 intensity options. On top of a cool, ergonomic design, it also comes with 2 comfortable headrests- perfect for 2 people!
The first major consideration of any 2 person whirlpool tub is going to be its size. If it’s not obvious from the design that the tub is made for two people, you are going to want to look to the specs. As a rule of thumb, 80 Gallon Tub capacity is usually a comfortable fit. If the tub capacity isn’t available, you can also look at the size of the tub itself. 4 feet x 4 feet is the minimum size you would want for a 2 person tub. Anything smaller than this is going to get a bit cozy!
The second consideration to take is regarding the features of the tub. While all whirlpool tubs are going to come with basic features like jets, features that can set a product apart include things like lighting, multiple jet settings, and even audio! Keep in mind that more features is usually going to equate to a higher price tag. If you’re looking for luxury, the higher price can often be worth it!
The number of jets is often overlooked when selecting a 2 person tub. Of course, everyone is going to have a personal preference when it comes to this, but there are some general guidelines you can follow. For a comfortable experience, try to find something with at least 6 designated jets per person. The layout of the jets is also going to be important. For a massage experience, the jets should be concentrated relatively close together and should point towards your back and upper body. If you just enjoy splashing around in the bubbles, the layout of the jets is not as important as the sheer quantity!
As we discussed above, size is going to be one of the most important considerations when selecting a 2 person whirlpool tub! Although there is no hard and fast rule on this, a good ballpark range is 80 gallons or at least 4 feet by 4 feet.
A whirlpool tub is actually a type of jetted tub! There are generally 2 types of jetted tubs - air tubs and whirlpool tubs. An air tub shoots jets of air, while a whirlpool tub shoots jets of water. Both are great options and can provide an excellent massage experience. Many of the tubs on this list actually utilize both air and whirlpool jets, allowing you to get the best of both whirlds (excuse the horrible joke- I had to do it!).
Whirlpool baths may require a bit more maintenance and cleaning than a standard bathtub, but with a regular cleaning you can enjoy the luxury of a spa experience at minimal effort. Clean your tub at least once a month. Best practice is every 2 weeks. Household cleaning equipment should be enough to do the trick- but you will want to make sure that you are giving enough attention to the jets. If neglected over time, the jets can harbor algae or mold.
