Safety Myths about Whirlpools
Posted on Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Whirlpool bathtubs can help turn any bathroom into a luxurious escape, but some people may avoid buying one due to myths that, throughout frequent repetition, are commonly seen as truth.

DécorPlanet is happy to offer this guide to some of the top safety myths about whirlpools. If you have questions about whirlpool tubs that are not addressed here, please contact our customer service department online or by calling 800-504-9974 today

Myth: Hair can get sucked into whirlpool jets.
Fact: The massaging streams of water in whirlpool tubs are assisted with air pressure. Whirlpool tubs pull air in through specially designed intake valves. These intake valves are not powerful enough to cause hair to get stuck.

Myth: Whirlpool jets can cause bruising.
Fact: Whirlpools are designed to provide a deeper, more therapeutic massage than air tubs. However, unless there is a medical condition that makes skin extremely sensitive, bruising is highly unlikely. You control the pressure of each whirlpool jet and can adjust to provide just the right amount of power and relaxation.

Myth: Whirlpool jets can become hot enough to burn the skin.
Fact: Whirlpool jets are made of plastic and can never become hotter than the water that is coursing through them.

Myth: Whirlpools are havens for bacteria.
Fact: All tubs, when not cleaned regularly, are havens for bacteria. When cleaned properly, the surface of your whirlpool tub can be kept as bacteria-free as any other surface in your bathroom.

Antibacterial plumbing and purge cycles help keep the internal components of whirlpool tubs clean, and jets can be removed and cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher. While bacteria resistant, plumbing may require a soapy mixture be run through on occasion. Your tub’s user manual will have more information on specific cleaning requirements. 

There are hundreds of safety myths about whirlpool tubs and this list is, admittedly, incomplete. If you have safety concerns about whirlpool tubs or would like to discuss options with someone who can separate fact from fiction, please visit one of our New York showrooms or call our customer service department today.
