Immerse yourself in your own personal well-being experience: the pleasant combination of water, heat and massage makes a whirlpool the ideal place for regeneration of body and mind. The comforting flow of water melts away any stress and tension from the day to create a growing sensation of relaxation. The stimulating bubbles also have an energising effect, in the case of an outdoor hot tub, with the added bonus of a view of nature.
As well as helping you to relax, your comfortable whirlpool also has a positive effect on your health. The gentle bubbles help to ease tension and relieve stress. It also boosts the circulation, tightens connective tissues and strengthens the immune system – a real source of well-being and health.
These hot tubs give you the freedom of combining your preferred jets with your favourite seat. You can choose between 16 different JetPaks and position them at every seat in no time at all – for a wellness experience that is exactly tailored to your respective needs. Thanks to this patented JetPak technology, hot tubs can be upgraded at any time to include the JetPaks with the latest jet technologies.
The combination of water, heat and pleasant hydromassage offered by a whirlpool tub has a demonstrable positive effect on your health and physical well-being.
Are you planning on adding a hot tub to your home so you can relax and unwind whenever you want to? It’s worth thinking about a few basics beforehand and to define what is important to you to make sure that your very own retreat also suits your needs. Do you want to relax in your own bathroom or would you rather have an open-air spa tub in your garden? How much space is available to install it there? Are you going to be enjoying a gentle massage in warm water for two or more often with all the family or with friends?
The price of your hot tub will depend on how many people you want your future favourite relaxation spot to accommodate and which special features are important to you. Entry-level models for indoors, which still ensure user comfort, are already available at affordable prices. Spacious outdoor whirlpools, which you can fit with a number of optional extras such as an integrated stereo system, are more expensive. But don’t make false economies. Pay attention to the durability of the construction, high-quality massage features and a high level of energy efficiency. You will find a wide range of models at Villeroy & Boch geared to your personal needs and preferences. Your local Villeroy & Boch dealer will be happy to advise you.
The functionality of a whirlpool is based on two different systems, which are often combined with one another. An air system pumps in ambient air and pushes it into the pool through jets. It is usually preheated to ensure that the outlet air doesn’t feel uncomfortably cold. This system usually has the jet openings on the floor of the tub, which cater for a pleasant tingle. If you want a more noticeable massage effect, an innovative jet system is much better, as can be found in Villeroy & Bochs’s high-quality hot tubs. In this case, a combination of air and water is pumped through the jets, which produces more pressure and enables a powerful massage in the first place.
It is important to use resources efficiently in all areas of life. This is why Villeroy & Boch hot tubs come with an energy-saving design, which cleverly combines several different factors to ensure there is no unnecessary waste. Take our outdoor whirlpools as an example, which have a high-quality full-foam insulation that keeps as much heat as possible inside the tub. The innovative JetPak technology combined with the perfected pipe construction also ensures that heat loss is kept to a minimum. The exact amount of power consumption for each single model depends on several factors. Visit a local Villeroy & Boch dealer where you can directly compare our different hot tubs and who will also be happy to give you more information on power consumption.
The perfect water temperature to enjoy a relaxing soak in a hot tub differs from person to person. Most people prefer to have the same temperature as in their bath. In general, the thermometer should not exceed 40 °C as the heat would otherwise put too much stress on your circulation. If children are also in the whirlpool, a maximum of 35 °C is recommended. If you want to be able to use your hot tub whenever you want to, it is best to keep the temperature at a constant level. Reducing the heat for just a few hours is not advisable as reheating the water uses up the energy you have saved.
Soaking in a hot tub has numerous positive effects on the entire organism. A targeted massage with Villeroy & Boch’s innovative JetPaks gently relaxes tense muscles. Simultaneously, the hydrostatic pressure on the muscles transports unnecessary by-products away. A post-exercise soak in a hot tub allows the body to recover much quicker, helps to prevent aching muscles and relaxes ligaments and tendons. The pleasant heat of the water combined with a soothing massage calms the vegetative nervous system and has a deep calming effect in a short space of time. Relaxing in a spa tub in the evening before you go to bed will lead to a deeper, more restful sleep.
A soak in a hot tub with the right bath products will make it an extraordinary experience for all the senses. Adding your favourite scent to the warm water will increase the soothing effect of the bath in a pleasant way. But a note of warning: not every fragrant bath essence is suitable for use in a whirlpool. The bubbles will greatly intensify the foaming effect. Bath toiletries containing fat or oil are also not recommended as they can leave a residue in the jets. It is best to use high-quality bath salts without any dyes or additives or home-made herbal blends, which are added to the water in a tea net to ensure that no residue or ugly colouring are left behind.
Regular cleaning and maintenance of your hot tub is essential to ensure you will be able to enjoy it for many years to come. Checking and treating water with the proper additives on a regular basis will keep the quality high all of the time and protect your pool from any damage caused by dirt. However, over time residue from soap and cleaning agents – that comes off your skin and your bathing suit – will accumulate in the tub. You should, therefore, replace the water completely every 1-4 months, depending on how often the hot tub is used, and clean the tub as well as the JetPak area with a special whirlpool cleaner.
