Whirlpool wishes, but a budget-sized bathroom? Gulfstream's Jester whirlpool tub is designed to fit into small spaces.
The cast acrylic tub features four whirlpool jets and the same standard 1 horsepower pump as the larger models. At just five feet long and three feet across, it's a full foot shorter and narrower than most whirlpool tubs.
It holds a maximum of 45 gallons of water (25 minimum) and has a switch which allows it to be used as a soaking tub. A slightly larger, 42-inch wide model is also available.
The tub is budget friendly as well with the whirlpool model starting at $849, and the soaking tub at $475. This Georgia company makes the tubs on-site and sells factory-direct, eliminating the costs of showrooms or product placement.
The starting price gets you a basic white tub. Colors are $80 extra. A variety of other add-ons include a 1.5 HP motor for $50, a skirt ($175), an in-line heater ($199) and extra jets ($45). Tubs are shipped nationwide.
The tub and whirlpool motor carry a five-year warranty.
