Japanese style soaking tub w jets?
We are beginning a Master bath remove, including the replacement of a older, 52" round, 27" deep soaking tub with whirlpool jets. It is fully recessed in a ground floor over a crawl space.
I've always been grossed out by the pipes of the existing tub and had all but settled on a Sanijet. My husband wants something less traditional looking and deeper, like our current tub.
He wants to looks at freestanding (or semi recessed) Japanese soaking style tubs, but he also wants some kind of jet action. I'm looking at the MTI Yume, which is great, but I'd like to know of other options.
Our bathroom has a large, curvy glass-brick wall on 2 sides which calls for a round or oval tub. A square would not be a good use of space.
Ideal tubs would be-
Freestanding (but can be recessed for motor, etc)
Jetted (air or whirlpool)
Round / Oval
Less than 54" diameter
