Even though taking a bath is the ultimate in relaxation, buying a bathtub unit is bound to be a very stressful undertaking. There are several factors which you have to take into consideration apart from the price tag. First and foremost you need to determine how much space you have because this will determine the size of the unit you are going to purchase. You should also decide on how you intend to use the unit, a standard tub will simply be filled water whereas an air bath or whirlpool has several jets or channels which provide some massaging air. You should also consider any special installation considerations which may be required such as planning for an electric timer, air switch, or pump. You also need to take into consideration whether the drain is on the right or left hand side and where your drain is located.
One should also take into consideration the size of the water heater: it should be able to handle the size of the bathtub with ease. If weight is a problem, you need to keep in mind that whereas an iron cast bathtub can weigh up to 1000 pounds, a plastic bathtub can barely weigh 50 pounds when empty and is therefore easier to handle.
