Owning a walk-in tub brings the benefits of a spa to the home, with added benefits like having more privacy, cleaner bathing, and more control
Frequent visits to the spa can have many physical and mental benefits to one’s health. The therapeutic effects of soaking in a warm jetted tub or getting a massage can help reduce stress and even aid in healing from injuries. However, like most good things, there can be some drawbacks from frequenting the spa.
Sanitation is a common concern when going to spas. While most gym spas and dedicated relaxation spas frequently clean hot tubs and surrounding areas, in many case it’s not enough. In fact, results from a 2013 CDC survey found that one in eight inspections of 49,000 public aquatic venues resulted in immediate closures due to health violations. The simple truth is that hot tubs provide an excellent environment for bacteria growth, some of which is resistant to chlorine. Add in the amount of people using the spa each day, bringing in sweat, dead skin cells and even fecal matter, and the fight to keep spas clean and safe can seem all but impossible.
With home walk-in tubs, owners have great control over the sanitary conditions of their bathing experience. Ella Acrylic walk-in bathtubs include a removable stainless steel door, which makes cleaning hard to reach places much easier. With regular wipe downs and flushing the air and water jets, users can enjoy clean and safe spa-like bathing. Most importantly, walk-in tubs are drained after each use, so unlike spa hot tubs, there is no need for chlorine. Clean fresh water is used for each and every soak.
“Ella’s Bubbles walk-in tubs aim to bring all the benefits of spa-like bathing right to the home, without having to worry whether the environment has been thoroughly cleaned and is safe to use,” says Laimonis Magone, CEO, Ella’s Bubbles. “It’s almost impossible to know if a public spa area is contaminated with harmful bacteria, and not knowing greatly diminishes the relaxing experience you’re supposed to be having.”
Privacy is another factor to consider when comparing a club or public spa with ownership of a walk-in tub. Space at spas is shared, and while that might not seem like a big deal to many people, it’s worth while taking a look at what added privacy that owning a walk-in tub offers. In the comfort of your own home, walk-in tubs offer a personalized spa-like experience where users can set their own pace, control temperature, not to mention stripping down without strangers watching in a locker room. Listening to your music and lighting candles while relaxing are just two more things not allowed in shared spaces at most spas.
Some might argue that the home spa experience offered by walk-in tubs can’t match the amenities available at real spas. However, with years of experience and hard work to improve designs, Ella’s Bubbles offers a line of walk-in tubs that stand out in the industry as being incredibly luxurious. Accessories like Infusion™ MicroBubble Therapy, heated seats and backrests, independent foot massage, and much more, make bathing in an Ella’s walk-in tub a ritual that users will want to repeat on a daily basis.
