Whirlpool tubs target aching muscles with pulsating jets of water, and air baths provide an all-encompassing massage while deep, heated soaking tubs provide gentle stress relief. Hydrotherapy models combine all these options for the ultimate in relaxation.

When it comes to soaking your stresses away, there’s a brand new option from Acquatic, where beautiful award-winning bath products have been inspired and made in America since 1965.

Exclusive to Aquatic and the latest addition to the company’s popular Serenity series, which features a collection of gentle and soothing bathing experiences including soakers, HotSoaks and air baths, DriftBath is an entirely new type of hydrotherapy system.

Offering builders and homeowners a feature-rich option to standard soaking tubs and a tranquil alternative to whirlpools, DriftBath is ideal for the bather who wants simple and quiet hydrotherapy for floating away into restful relaxation.

The new system features more than 70 water-only ports in the backrest and foot areas of the bathing well. Each port individually releases a delicate ribbon of moving water that converges to create a blanket of water flowing in one direction. The result is a soft current that simulates the experience of sitting in a calm stream.

For both new construction and renovation, Acquatic’s Starla is an ideal fit for master baths with side-by-side bath/shower configurations.

Part of Aquatic’s Builders’ Choice series, the Starla whirlpool tub offers a luxury upgrade option that doesn’t require any alteration to a smaller bathroom’s footprint. At 57” x 38” x 24”, Starla is Aquatic’s smallest oval hydrotherapy tub, designed to provide as much bathing well space and luxury as the industry standard 60” x 42” master tub.

Both DriftBath and Starla hydrotherapy tubs were included in the recently published “101 Best New Products” lists of Professional Builder and Professional Remodeler. For more information, go to
