Think about what style of tub you want, do you want water-jets, air jets or a combination of both.

If you enjoy baths salts purchasing a whirlpool bath may not be the best idea.

Compare the size of your tub and hot water heater. Ensure the your current hot water heater can cope and hold enough water for your whirlpool and spa bath as they take up much more energy and can use more water that is pumped to create the massaging affect.
Try and test the tub as soon as possible, in simpler terms try and sit in the bath, get into a position that you would be in your bath as you may come to find that you, or someone else in your family, may not be able to fit wasting money and also decreasing the chance of the ultimate bathing experience.
