Jetted tubs are somewhat fading in popularity, but many homeowners still enjoy having a Jacuzzi in their bathroom. If you have an older jetted tub that still functions well, you may want to upgrade its appearance. Is spa tub refinishing possible? Can you reglaze a jetted tub? Read on to explore your options.
Most Jetted Tubs Can Be Refinished!
The good news is that most jetted bathtubs can be refinished, much like any other bathtub. The construction materials are similar. They just need a little extra prep work to protect the jets during the reglaze. You can change the color of your Whirlpool bathtub without replacing it! This will save you a ton of time and money overall.
How Spa Tub Refinishing Works
As with any tub refinishing process, the first step is a general preparation of the area. We’ll shield anything we don’t want to get the new coating on and set up the room for the process. We’ll make small repairs, as needed, and lightly sand the surface to cling to the new coating. After several layers of professional-grade tub coating, we’ll seal everything off with a top-coat.
The coating takes a few days to fully cure, but it will be dry to the touch shortly after application. Wait the allotted time before using your jetted tub, and then you can soak in it just like you always have!
Tub Refinishing vs. Replacing Your Jetted Tub
Whirlpool tubs, Jacuzzi tubs and other jetted bathtubs are quite expensive compared to standard bathtubs. They’re also tricky to install because of the plumbing involved with the jets. Replacing a jetted tub is costly, time consuming and complicated. It’s simply not necessary if your current tub functions well.
If your existing jetted tub doesn’t work or requires costly repairs, replacing it may be the right option for you. If you simply want to change the look of your tub though, refinishing is the way to go.
Refinishing Shouldn’t Impact the Function of Your Jets
If your jets works right now, they’ll work after refinishing. This is why we take extra precautions during the preparation steps. However, if your jets are not working at this time, refinishing won’t change that. You’ll need to work with a plumber or jetted tub repair specialist to get to the root of the issue and make your tub function correctly. This should be done before refinishing because the repair work may damage the new coating.
Is Spa Tub Refinishing Durable?
Yes, spa refinishing is incredibly durable. This isn’t paint you can buy from the store. It’s a proprietary blend of materials that you need special equipment and licenses to use. If you’re a person who soaks in the tub twice a week to relax, you can continue to do that after refinishing.
