But it comes down to personal preference of which system is best in your own personal soaking tub. Some like to have a nice leisurely soak while others want to have a deep massage on their aching muscles and joints. We have put together this little cheat sheet that gives you a break down of the attributes of each system.

Air jets creat a less intense, effervescent massaging sensation Forceful jets produce deep massage affects
Water cannnot be built up in the system Increased chance of contaminants in water jet system if not installed properly
