Whirlpool tubs are available with three different kinds of jet systems. Some tubs offer only air jets, others offer only water jets and still others offer both air and water jets. The quality of whirlpool tubs vary greatly. Some seem to be very thin and others are prone to leaks. Be sure that the whirlpool tub that you are purchasing is of a good quality. The most expensive tub is not necessarily the best in quality.

The most popular materials used to make whirlpool tubs are fiberglass, acrylic, and cast iron. Fiberglass is the most economical of them all. Acrylic is much more durable than fiberglass, as it is fade and stain-proof. However, abrasive material should not be used on it, to prevent it from chipping. Both, fiberglass and acrylic are plastic compounds and quite light.

Cast iron is a durable product too, but it is quite heavy. If you intend to install it in an old bathroom, you should ensure that the floor is reinforced in order to bear the weight of the tub as well as its occupants. It is also prone to chipping over time, and may not be able to retain heat very well.
