Whirlpool baths with or without a shower?

With many of our whirlpool baths, you can choose to upgrade to include to include a shower valve kit and, in many case, a shower screen.

Whether you need to have a shower with your bath is a personal decision and depends on certain factors.

In this article, we’ll take a look at why you might choose a luxury whirlpool bath with a shower.

Convenience

If you are going to install a whirlpool bath in your main bathroom, then you may wish to consider including a shower along with it.

There will be times when you’re in a hurry and just need a quick shower rather than the extended time it takes to fully enjoy a bath.

This convenience is particularly important if you don’t have a second bathroom or ensuite with a shower. Even if you do have an additional shower, consider whether transferring from your whirlpool bath into a separate shower (which could be in another room) is worth the effort.

Installation

If you are remodelling your bathroom and part of your design plan includes having a whirlpool bath then consider the implications of installing a showering facility at the same time.

If you hadn’t considered having a shower with your whirlpool bath up until now, then obviously your budget would need to increase to accommodate the extra purchase and installation costs.

Many of are whirlpool baths can have showers fitted at a later date, so that’s certainly an option. However, you need to decide if it’s worth the disruption of two separate jobs or whether it’s more convenient to get it all done in one go.

Cost

When considering whether to include a shower with your whirlpool bath, you will always need to factor in the extra cost for this functionality.

While shower screens are included with all of our shower whirlpool baths, you will need to select your shower valve kit separately.

Fortunately, all of the shower valve kits in our catalogue are compatible with all models of shower whirlpool bath and have a price range of between £200 – £500.

Special mention must go to our Marflow Savini Thermostatic Shower Valve Kit which can be used in conjunction with the JetFill, allowing the valve on the wall to control filling the bath through the whirlpool jets. A lovely and luxurious feature.

Whirlpool baths with shower option

We have a variety of P and L shaped baths that are deliberately wider at one end to allow comfortable room for the movement involved in washing under a shower.

All of these specially-shaped combo baths are provided with a shower screen as standard. You also get the option of adding a shower valve kit of your choice at the time of purchase, or with the peace of mind that you can add it at a later date.
