    Re: jacuzzi

    I woud say the brand name Jacuzzi itself.


    But, if you're going on the cheap with this idea, better install numerous access panels to the pump and tubing because you will be working on that setup at that price.

        i have installed a lot of hot tubs but they ALL have been customer supplied
        i can spend more money if thats whats needed
        i want to install a drop in type with ceramic tile around the frame
        access panal for the faucet and pump (i will not have access to all the jets after installation)
        what do you think is the best (with less of a chance for problems later)
        and how much do they cost

          Are we talking about a hot tub or a whirlpool bath?

            i prefer an acrylic one. they are lighter to install and come in all types of shapes and sizes.

            they can also have an air bubble system.

              I have installed a few of the airbaths that Rick mentioned, owners thus far are all very happy with them. Check out these tubs, not sure of their cost, but very high satisfaction rate on them.

                  I've installed hundreds of them.There are too many variables to just be that easy.Seems like every year there is a new company adding to the already hundreds of configurations.

                  If You want cheap and easy for a $1000-$1500 the only thing I can offer is what I've seen homeowners buy..Home-Depot.

                  NHMaster's showing you a good path.

                  The only thing I have to say about that price range is I would be concerned with the material being used.Is it a thin,noisy fiberglass or a thick quieter acrylic.Cheap ones don't have the in-line heater option which I would advise if you have a smaller water heater or someone who likes blowing a lot of cold air through their tub water.

                  The last one I put in this summer listed at $7200.00.But it had bells and whistles you couldn't imagine.A water Ionizer...Aromatherapy...
                  Foot massager???Gimme a break

                  You start getting into a much nicer tub that is far more appealing for a little more money.Your really scraping the bottom of the barrel at that range.This tub is going to be there for a long time.

                  Good luck
