Although outdoor whirlpools may seem like a modern invention, their predecessors could be found in Roman public baths, where the empire’s inhabitant’s would relax in the warm, mineral waters, washing away their daily troubles.
The same luxurious experience is nowadays afforded by contemporary outdoor whirlpools, which offer a multitude of options when it comes to the comforts they provide. Take ‘SportX-Line 131’ made by Villeroy & Boch, a relatively smaller, simpler outdoor whirlpool that seats two people and features the necessary water jets and filters. Furthermore, it is insulated in order to minimize heat loss and ensure a pleasant experience.
A larger, more elaborate model by the same manufacturer is ‘Premium Line A8L’ outdoor whirlpool. It can easily accommodate five people and features a large variety of water jets in order to provide a comprehensive home hydrotherapy. Villeroy & Boch also offer almost every conceivable option between these two ends of the spectrum.
Not staying behind, EOOS-designed ‘Sundeck - Pool’ by DURAVIT is a large, angular bath which offers three different whirl cycles and an ozone system to disinfect the water. Kos-manufactured ‘Quadrat’, designed by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, is a large, low, square outdoor whirlpool with an infinity edge that will appeal to those with a penchant for minimalist, yet comfortable design.
