I remodeled our bathroom about 8 years ago and installed an American Standard Jaccuzi type tub. It was easy to install with building a surround with removable panels to get to the GFCI and pump. As for cleaning the insides of the jets and pumps, my wife just takes a bubble bath about once a week and then rinses out the jets. This unit does not have heaters built into it and it is just slightly larger than a standard tub, mostly deeper. In the 8 years we have had it it averages about 9 uses per week ( my wife is disabled due to severe back problems) and we have not had a single problem or even opened the access panels on it. If something happened to it today, I would replace it with another Americam standard just like it. Now about the bathroom remodel I did, do not even think about asking me about the water saver toilet I installed then. Don't know the brand name of it but it got replaced 3 years ago. Have an A.S. now that is much better.
