Does anyone have a jacuzzi bath?
Our house has one, it was in when we moved in, it’s a completely pointless item.
It’s noisy, uncomfortable, and a waste of space (a normal bath of the same dimensions would be an excellent item that would be welcome in my bathroom).
Whatever you do, don’t get one, ours will be coming out as soon as we can face fitting a new bathroom.
Can you tell we don’t like it? 😉Posted 4 years agospacemonkeyMember
A few years ago I visited a property where the owners had installed what can only be described as an enclosed multi-jet shower cubicle with seating for two and a waterproof TV with speakers and control panel. £8000 apparently, and that’s excluding all the other fittings and finishing kit in the bathroom. Was only a converted 3 bed chalet bungalow type place as well. ****ing hideous it was.Posted 4 years agowwpaddlerMember
We have one as the previous owners installed it. Absolute pain in the arse and would never recommend one. Wish we could afford to replace it with a normal bath.
Jacuzzi/bubble thing is not relaxing so we don’t use it. Still have to clean it with jacuzzi bath cleaner or a dishwasher tablet. Despite this you still find yourself sat in a bath with bits of biofilm/mould floating around you which grow in the jets.
May be less of a pain if you use the jets regularly and clean it regularly but wouldn’t want the water bill for this.Posted 4 years agoqwertyMember
We had one when we brought this place, sold it on eBay for £75.Posted 4 years ago
You develop a fear of the potential for a black mould bath every time you turn it on.
Had one in a sleezy hotel in Brighton once, much fun had turning it into a mega bubble machine with Mr Matey & the Mrs.MrOvershootSubscriber

I’ve had two goes in a jacuzzi in my life. One with an eastern European ex professional ballroom dancer. One with my M-i-L (at centrePARC’s, natch)
Memorable for different reasons.
That’s why I love this site, the whole spectrum of life 😀
TBH I find Bath’s a bit gruesome these days, since having a wet-room put in 2010 the thought of sitting in dirty water (all be it my dirt) seems sillyPosted 4 years agoMidnighthourMember
I accidentally got assigned a hotel room with one it. I was quite keen to try it, but when I did I could not beleive the racket the pumps and swirling water made. Took all the ‘romance’ out of having a swirling pool of water. After about 5 minutes I felt so guilty that it might be disturbing people in all the ajoining rooms or below me that I turned it off and for the rest of the stay used it as a normal bath, with the pumps off. I was stunned how disappointing it was, due to all the noise it made.Posted 4 years agoiain1775Subscriber
Got one in our old house as the whole suite was on offer and cheaper than similar suite with a normal bath, used it about 3 times in 8 years, due to all the reasons listed abovePosted 4 years ago
Have a corner one in this house as previous owners put it in. In 7 months here its been on once, for cleaning
Complete waste of money, a bath with traditional bubble bath is more soothing
