Indoor hot tub guide

1. What are the advantages of an indoor hot tub?

You can relax and unwind in your own indoor hot tub whenever you feel like it. When it comes to public saunas or thermal baths, you have to comply with their opening times and then you also have to get there. But your very own whirlpool is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And in your own home you also benefit from privacy. Compared to an outdoor whirlpool, an indoor version is less expensive to buy and has lower operational costs. The warm water also heats the room and there is no heat loss, which normally occurs with outdoor hot tubs in winter. Having said that, people who enjoy relaxing outside probably wouldn't want miss out on their exclusive spa moments in the fresh air.

2. What are the options for indoor hot tubs?

The Villeroy & Boch whirlpool systems offer a wealth of options to combine different elements with each other in order to enjoy very individual spa moments. You could turn your bath into an AirPool with air jets or into a HydroPool with water jets. The air jets have a stimulating effect and relax tense muscles whereas the water system provides a targeted massage and stimulates the local metabolism. Or would you like to enjoy the best of both worlds? Then a CombiPool is the perfect choice. Our innovative whirlpool systems are available as optional extras for a wide range of Villeroy & Boch baths. How about an aesthetic Squaro Edge 12 whirlpool bath, which takes your bathing experience to another level? The perfect place for a relaxing soak.

3. How can I integrate an indoor hot tub into the bathroom?

They blend just like a normal bath into the room’s overall concept thanks to the innovative Villeroy & Boch whirlpool bath systems. As the whirling function creates more moisture in the air, you need to ensure there is plenty of ventilation in the room as well as the prerequisites mentioned previously regarding insulation and vapour barrier devices. But if the room doesn’t have a window, an exhaust fan combined with a dehumidifier is perfect for creating a pleasant climate. It is also important that other bathroom furnishings and fittings, such as your bathroom furniture, can withstand the higher humidity level and won’t be damaged.

4. What do I have to consider with an indoor hot tub?

If you want to furnish your home with an indoor whirlpool, you first need to find the best place for your new centrepiece. Apart from the bathroom, you cold also consider a separate spa area in the basement. To ensure that your favourite relaxation place looks as inviting as it did on the first day even after a long time, a few structural requirements have to be fulfilled or corrected. As an indoor hot tub creates a high level of moisture, you need to fit walls and ceilings with a professional vapour barrier to protect the brickwork from steam diffusion. Suitable thermal insulation is also important to ensure that no unwanted condensation settles in the room. The stone floor should have a sealing film and insulation and be covered with splashproof ceramic tiling.

5. How do you clean an indoor hot tub?

Made from high-quality acrylic or innovative Quaryl®, the Villeroy & Boch indoor whirlpools are very low maintenance and provide a high level of hygiene. The perfectly smooth, non-porous surfaces of the whirlpools don't allow dirt and deposits to grip onto anything and can be simply cleaned as necessary. Minor damage, such as small scratches or burn marks, on solid-colour plastics like acrylic or Quaryl are easy to rectify. To find out how, take a look at our Wellness care instructions. The whirlpool jets are quick and easy to remove so they can be cleaned regularly and hygienically.

6. Can I use bath additives?

A fragrant bath additive strengthens the soothing effect of a warm whirlpool. But a note of warning: if you do not want your spa experience to end in an unwanted foam party, you should make sure that the bath product you add is also suitable for use in a whirlpool. You should avoid foaming products as well as bath toiletries containing fat or oil as they will leave a residue in the jets and pipes of your indoor hot tub and eventually clog them. You can use bath salts if they are completely soluble. Even home-made herbal blends, which you can add to the water in a small fabric bag or net, are a fantastic solution to enjoy aromatherapy in a natural way.

7. What accessories do I need for my indoor hot tub?

You could equip your Villeroy & Boch indoor hot tub with an effective TouchLight system with a choice of coloured or white LED light for an atmospheric spa experience. A waterproof multifunctional cushion increases your bathing comfort and gives you a unique feeling of weightlessness, encouraged by the pleasantly warm water and the gentle tingling of the whirling function. An optional bath handle in a shiny chrome look helps you step safely out of the bath when you are in a state of deep relaxation.
