Victoria and Albert vs Air Tub

aimless07July 19, 2014

From what I understand, man made stone tubs retain heat better but I was curious about air tubs. We are considering Victoria and Albert and their warranty is great but they are a little more than what we wanted to pay. If anyone else has had a good experience with other brands with that stone/resin mix, let me know.

Another stone tub I was interesting in the Aquatica 604M. I think it is a perfect combination of straight and curves. That is the picture I posted. I just don't know a lot about the company.

Also looking at air flow tubs. A friend of mind said her experience was rather meh. The air bubbles were cold and she didn't see any therapeutic quality. Maybe that was an isolated incident? I also wonder how loud the little air machine is when you turn it on.

I know I don't want cast iron, fiberglass, or acrylic.

Anyone have thoughts and experiences?

I'm not a bath person, but my wife obsesses about them and we're planning a new home right now. We just had the discussion about many of the new tubs looking very beautiful but having very straight lines that would be uncomfortable for long soaks.

If you're the type to soak for 20-30 min like my wife, then definitely make sure you actually sit in those tubs first, because that one for example does NOT look comfortable in the angle of it to my eye at least.
