Our superior Mexican copper bathtub models are designed to bring more than just a warm feeling. These spacious tubs are roomy and perfect for relaxing and rejuvenating your body from the stresses of life.
You can find every style of tub in our Copper Bathtubs category. The most popular style of tub is the slipper tub. We have single slippers and double slippers. The single slipper is when only one end of the tub sweeps up. The idea is that while bathing, you can recline on to the elevated end and the back, shoulders, neck, and head will all be supported.
On a double slipper, both ends of the tub are swept up. Often times, double slipper tubs are big enough for two. Two ends allow for two people to lay back on the raised ends and to get the same upper body support.
Double-ended tubs are the same height all around. There is no raised end, however, the wall of the tub does lean or slope out so the tub is wider at the top than at the bottom. This structure allows one or two people to bathe.
If the desire is to have a copper clawfoot tub big enough for two, be sure to get a tub that is a minimum of 30 inches wide. There is some positioning that needs to be considered so width is important.
Interior - Exterior
All of our copper tubs are made of hand-hammered Mexican Copper. There are antique, fired and natural patinas, and some are been coated with oil rubbed bronze. Each tub is rich copper with a living patina that gets richer in appearance as the copper ages.
Some of our tubs that have a nickel interior. The addition of another metal like nickel adds a new dimension to the tub. Each metal complements the other.
Each of these tubs is one-of-a-kind as an artisan hand-hammers the copper and shapes the tub. If you look closely you can see the divots in the metal from the hammer each time it strikes the metal. The tub starts out as a large sheet and it is hammered into the shape of a magnificent designer tub. No two tubs are exactly identical.
Healthy For You
You will find a number of health benefits associated with using copper bathtubs. Among the most significant is that reports indicate bacteria have a very short lifespan of just hours on copper, as compared to days on stainless steel and even longer on other types of surfaces.
Please note that copper is even registered as an antimicrobial component. That is impressive, due to the fact that this registration is typically only granted to liquids, aerosols or gases.
Copper has a restorative effect on joint motion and connective tissue by minimizing inflammation associated with aging and sporting injuries. When your skin touches the surface area of a copper tub, your body absorbs small amounts of copper. There are none of the gastrointestinal side effects which are common with anti-inflammatory drugs. A copper tub is a great method to add copper to the body.
Care For Copper Tubs
The most effective method to care for a Copper tub is the simplest; use a mild soap and soft towel when it is needed. A good practice is to wipe the tub completely dry after each usage, particularly if you live in hard water locations.
In order to help keep the copper tub looking its finest, use a thin coat of wax periodically. The wax will aid to maintain the luster of the copper and will promote better water evaporation. The Tub Connection recommends Copper Sink Care Wax, a natural bee's wax spray-on formula which is available from our online store. An easy and will dry completely clear to draw out the real copper patina.
