Master Bath - 2 person tub / whirlpool ?
We are in the process of designing a new house. We do a lot of hiking / exercising and would like to have a tub of sorts to come home to relax/soak -- relieve sore muscles.
We've considered the outdoor hot tub however have heard from most who own them that they just don't get used often... just not convenient enough. So we are now looking into a 2 person INDOOR tub / whirlpool / air massage type tub.
We currently have an Ultrabain 1 person tub now... but it's loud - builder didn't know you could install the motor/blower outside which I assume would have made for a quieter experience where you could have a conversation at least ... AND the water gets cold after a 40min soak.
So the points I consider important are the noise level, the ability to keep the water hot, and also any bacteria issue... that I've been reading about from others.
Would appreciate any comments / suggestions / recommendations / links... on brands, models etc. to consider and also to NOT consider.
