Jacuzzi Luxury Bath Introduces the Award-Winning Modena™ Bathtub – Its First Freestanding Whirlpool Bathtub

The Modena™ fully-enclosed jetted bath significantly reduces noise and energy consumption, and simplifies the installation process

CHINO HILLS, CA – (January 10, 2017) – Jacuzzi Luxury Bath (https://beta.jacuzzi.com/bathtubs/), the original inventor of the hydro-massage bath, proudly announces the launch of its first freestanding whirlpool bathtub – the Modena™ jetted bath. Standard features of the Modena™ Freestanding Whirlpool Bath include eight (8) flush-mount SlimPro® jets, standard LED Chromatherapy, electronic control panel and four bathtub color options.

Erica Moir, Vice President of New Product Development, states, “We felt that it was important to address common concerns about whirlpool bathtubs and freestanding installation; namely noise, cleanliness, and installation difficulty. The Modena™ bathtub eliminates not only these objections, but does so with a quiet jet system that is fully enclosed within the skirt of the bathtub.”

To minimize noise and vibration related to a jetted system, the Modena™ Freestanding Whirlpool features Whisper+ Technology™. Together with exclusive vibration dampeners, this unique technology reduces the noise and vibration associated with a standard Whirlpool system up to 66%, according to third party testing. Furthermore, the brushless motor offers eco-friendly heat transfer to the water and uses 60% less energy than a standard heated whirlpool system without sacrificing performance.

The Modena™ Freestanding Whirlpool Bath ships with a drain-alignment kit and template to facilitate the installation process. Once positioned, adjustable leveling feet allow fine-tuning to ensure level placement. Lastly, the tub-in-tub construction of the Modena™ bath allows for servicing without an access panel – the inner well is simply removed from the outer skirt.

The level of innovation achieved with the Modena™ bathtub was recognized this week in Orlando by Meredith Corporation’s Beautiful Kitchens & Baths magazine. The Modena™ bath earned a spot on their list of 30 Most Innovative Products. The list (TraditionalHome.com/30Most) unveils editors’ picks for their favorite kitchen and bath design products from 2017.

“The features and design of the Modena™ bathtub is based on voice-of-customer feedback to ensure that homeowners and plumbers, alike, will embrace this new product. This product is the natural progression of our product offering – pushing the freestanding installation trend to the ultimate level of luxury”, says Joseph Davis, President of Jacuzzi Luxury Bath.

List pricing starts at $5,420.
