What is a soaking tub, and why is the water depth a critical consideration?
Deeper than the average bathtub, a soaking tub is what its name implies: a deep bathtub that is designed to offer the ultimate in relaxation by allowing you to submerge your body entirely.
Well-designed and engineered soaking bathtubs are typically 18 inches or deeper and should be contoured for ergonomic and comfortable bathing experience with full-body immersion. soaking tubs are designed to offer the ultimate in relaxation by allowing you to submerge fully
What should I consider when buying a soaking tub?
First, consider the NET bathing depth, which is the distance from the inner bath bottom to the overflow opening. Soaking bathtubs are designed for long, comfortable soaks, so they must be deeper and more comfortable.
Investigate the company that imported, designed, and manufactured the bathtub and the criteria used to develop the bathtub. Most Asian importers are just "me-too" sellers of shoddy products of unclear origin and often made of toxic, uncured chemicals. There is no design and no engineering thought in these products. On the other hand, most European manufacturers have shallow, impractical designs that are not suitable for the North American market. Most Italian bathtub brands are not the actual manufacturers and know very little about what they sell.
Look for sophisticated 3D testing tools like Aquatica Bath Seating App that allows you to create an avatar with characteristics matching your body and test-ride the product.
Always make sure your doors, stairs, passages are wide enough to bring the bathtub to its intended location inside the house.
Ensure you have enough structural floor support for your big new and very deep bathtub. As a rule of thumb, the floor support under the bath must provide for a minimum of 1400 lbs. (635 kg).
Ensure an adequate hot water supply. As a rule of thumb, the hot water tank should be 70% of bathtub capacity or higher.
How deep typical soaking bathtubs tend to be?
Most Asian imported bathtubs tend to be approximately 13-15" bottom to overflow; soaking tubs should offer at least 17-18" or more to allow you to submerge your body entirely.
You might consider a shallower tub or a bathtub with a safety step or a bathtub with a door to allow for more comfortable, safer entry.
