How Do Whirlpool Baths Work?
In order for a whirlpool bath to work, the water in the bath must be higher than the intake valve. The intake is the circular, valve about halfway between the base and rim of the tub. The vacuum power of the pump draws water in, while the screen prevents bath accessories and arms, fingers and toes, from being suctioned into the valves. The pump’s motor creates force, which expels water from the jets at different pressures. While the vacuum strength does not change, the jet power can be modified. In many whirlpool baths, the ring around the jet turns the jet on and off and controls the pressure. The bath itself is turned on and off by a switch located on the deck or bath rim.
