    We just made this decision last month! haha. We are re-doing our Master Bath.

    We decided on the garden tub. Why? Cost, Upkeep, Bang for Buck (bigger for less), and that’s what we’ll use it for primarily. The cost of the jet system alone was enough for us to be like, “Uh okay, garden tub it is!” Lol.

    I had a jet tub and never used it.  It’s so loud that it makes it hard to relax or not disturb others who are trying to relax in other places.

    I always thought that I wanted a jet tub until the guy at the store told me that you can’t use any additives to the water in a jet tub, like salts or bubbles, it ruins the jets.  So that was my decision maker, totally not worth all the extra money for something that I can’t use how I want to.

    @cherrycoke:  It’s a long, wide, deep one. (I’m immature and giggled, sorry.) A round one, though nice, wouldn’t have fit in our space. We haven’t installed it yet, just bought it and now we’re picking out tile. *Sigh* I hate renovations. Lol.

    @cherrycoke:  Ours was only around $300 from Lowe’s. That isn’t including any of the hardware or other odds and ends.

    @cherrycoke:  They told me never, that is why I took it off the table for us.  I love my bubble baths and my bath salts.

    Someone told me that they used their jets once (after using the tub without them for an extended period of time) and they shot out mold. And theyre a clean couple. They just seem like a lot of work to keep clean.

    I think the jets would be nice for a massage…but that is what we have a jet shower head for! Otherwise, from what people have said here (no additives, noise) I would definitely pick the garden tub. We love to take relaxing baths together in total peace and quiet, so the jets would ruin that for us.
