I've never had a fancy tub, but my friend and her spouse bought a new house that came with a jetted tub. They both worked full-time and had several kids, and she developed breathing problems (unrelated to the tub), and the cleaning of the tub and jets became problematic for her. She finally told her spouse, either he cleaned the tub, or they hired someone to clean it.
So it is an additional domestic chore to consider, if that is a problem for you.

While my personal experience is limited, a good friend of mine had been involved in the spa tub business through family. She swore up and down that Dimension One was the best quality and construction and warranty. She used to give me crap about using "jacuzzi" as a generic term too :-)

Based on trusted recommendation, I'd strongly recommend comparing the Dimension One products in any consideration. Living in an 864SF condo, I will not be installing one in the near future myself.

Thanks everyone for all the replies and Nords, I appreciate the details you gave and took it into consideration.

Yesterday dw and I ordered a whirlpool tub, we didn't have a lot of choices since it's an odd size, 66" X 34" and needed the lip on three sides to fit into the wall. Sure enough Home Depot was on there last day sale and it should arrive in 3 weeks. DW mentioned she didn't care whether it was a whirlpool or not but in the end I hope I don't regret my decision. Sale price came in at around $1500.00 Canadian, but I still need to purchase the drain, electrical etc. I will be doing the install so this should be interesting.

Thanks for everyones feedback, I appreciate it.
