Update: June 25th 2020

We are pleased to announce that the third in our series of free downloadable PDF guides has now been released.

This new guide is based around specifying a built-in bath and explains the difference between an inset and undermount bath, and considers the pros and cons, so that you can make an informed choice about your bathroom design options.

We hope that you find it useful.

If you would like to see a guide on any other subject, please do let us know. Your feedback is always appreciated.


In order to help our customers to make the best possible choices when considering a purchase, we have begun the process of producing free downloadable guides to our various ranges.

We have started with two of our best-selling ranges: our deep soaking tubs and our bespoke hydrotherapy systems.

Deep Soaking Tubs

Since 1991, when we designed the world’s first modern deep soaking tub, numerous competitors have entered the market, many of them using much cheaper, inferior materials and designs that are less comfortable, less functional or both. In addition, some manufactures are describing any deep bath as a deep soaking tub, regardless of its size or shape. As a result, they’re creating confusion within the market about what the ‘deep soaking’ label really means.

To help prospective buyers to make a well-informed choice, and to help them choose a true soaking tub that will deliver many years of comfort and lasting value, we have produced our free Guide to Choosing a Deep Soaking Tub.

This short guide considers a range of important factors to consider before buying. For example:

  • Defining the characteristics of a true deep soaking tub
  • Size
  • Seating
  • Personal fit
  • Shape
  • Material
  • Colour choice(s)
  • Practicality and daily use
  • Optional extras
  • Guarantees


Hydrotherapy Baths

In a similar vein, our free Guide to Choosing a Hydrotherapy Bath is designed to help buyers to choose a system that works for them. Too often, whirlpool baths are mass-produced and do little more than produce frothy water. However, a true hydrotherapy system, properly design and fitted, can be a wonderful, luxurious addition to a bath and, for those who need it, it can be of genuine therapeutic value.

Two of the most important factors to consider are a) whether the bath has been specifically designed as a hydrotherapy bath, and b) whether the hydrotherapy system itself has been tailored for the individual user. The accurate placement of jets is critical to their effectiveness, so there is no substitute for a system that has been made to measure.

The guide considers these and other factors including:

  • Defining the characteristics of a hydrotherapy bath
  • Factory-fitting
  • Dimensions
  • Targeting of jets
  • Nozzle design
  • Control systems
  • Noise
  • Hygiene and safety
  • Power
  • Compactness
  • Optional extras
  • Guarantees
