The good news is that many of these heated surface bath tubs are just basic acrylic-type baths with embedded heating elements. For the most part plumbing installation is standard, but your electrician does need to add an approved GFCI electrical outlet to power the unit. Once installed, many heated tubs can have different temperature settings to enhance your soaking experience.
Also, popular in the bathroom remodeling business right now is heated flooring. So, why not have some heated feet to go along with your heated seat!
