The Difference

You may be wondering what the difference is between whirlpool and airpool baths, when it comes to health benefits there is no difference. The difference is in the way that they work, whirlpool baths jet out water, while airpool baths jet out air. It’s that simple. The only slight difference is you can never run a whirlpool bath without water covering the jets, this is very important as you can burn out the motor.

The Benefits

Whirlpool and airpool baths come with a host of benefits. They offer great massaging powers to those with aching muscles, relaxing in a hot bath while the jets gently massage aching joints is exceptionally beneficial.

These baths also improve circulation and help aching joints for those suffering with arthritis.

Away from the healing benefits, the whirlpool and airpool baths are easy to clean and maintain, which means that the choice is yours on which one to pick, one is not better than the other. The whirlpool baths require you fill the bath with soapy water using a cleaning mixture which you run through the system, you then add clean water and rinse the system before drying it out with a towel.

The airpool baths use the air jets to keep the system clean, once the bath is empty, you can run the jets for a minute and then wipe out the bath, ready for the next use.

The biggest advantage of these luxurious baths is the statement they make in any bathroom design. They add that sophisticated and luxurious finish to any bathroom design.

What Time of Day Will You Bath

You are right when you bath will make absolutely no difference as to which is the better option for your bathroom. Where time of day will make a difference is at night when the children have gone to bed and you have the time to run a wonderful hot bath, light some candles, turn down the lights and soak as the jets massage all your worries away.

How Long You Bath

You are right again this will also not help you when you are looking at whirlpool and airpool baths. These baths can be used as a normal bath without the jets or a relaxing spa like bath where you can be massaged by air or water and help your aching muscles.

When or how long you bath will make absolutely no impact on which of these baths are right for you.

Will Anyone Else Use The Bath

Well this point is something you should take up with the whole family, you may want to be selfish about your new whirlpool or airpool bath and keep it to yourself so you can enjoy the jets as and when you want.

Again you are right, this is going to make no impact on which one is the right choice for you.

What Will Help You Decide

For the serious side of things, both the whirlpool and airpool baths offer a spa like bathing experience. They both massage muscles, help with circulation and can do wonders for those suffering from arthritis.

They are both easy to maintain and clean, the only difference is that the one jets water and the other jets air. This means when cleaning the water one needs a solution run through it where the air one needs the jets to blow out air without water in the bath. Other than that they both offer the same advantages and convenience, so the choice basically comes down to you and your own preference.
