Deep Soaking Tubs

How Deep is a Deep Soaking Bath?

It depends on your body and how you recline in your tub and how long the bathing well is. Some lean against the backrest, some slouch. To see what depth will work either check your current bath or take a look at the technical sheet for the length of the tub at the bottom. Mark the tub length on the floor, sit (slouch) against a wall. If you have to bend your knees to fit in the marked area, measure from the floor to your knees to see the water depth required. Or measure to see how much water is needed to cover your shoulders.

Overflow & Water Depth
Every tub has an overflow;  a 2 1/2" hole drilled below the tub rim. When the water level reaches the overflow it flows into the drain to keep the tub from overfilling. Where the overflow is drilled depends on the bath tub. Most technical sheets will show the measurement from the bottom to the center of the overflow. Subtracting about 1 ½ from the measurement will give you an idea of how many inches of water the tub will hold. Other technical sheets will give the water depth.
 Tub Water Depth from Technical Sheet
Since water will flow out from the bottom of the overflow hole, this bath will hold just over 14". Some installers put the overflow cover on upside down so the slot is at the top. This will add a few more inches of water. There is also the option of using a product like Better Bath Deep Water Bath an overflow cover (amazon.com). This is a clear plastic cup with suction cups. Place it over the overflow with the hole at the top. Works the same as installing the overflow cover upside down.
Overflow Cover

Can a Bath Tub be Too Deep?
Yes. The technical sheet will also give you gallons of water the bath will hold. A general rule of thumb: 2/3 or 3/4 of the water will be hot water, the rest is cold. Let’s take a look at one of our deepest tubs – Hydro Systems Monterey. This is a two person, 72 x 42,  tub with a center (side) drain and two sloping backrests. The floor length is 50" and depth to overflow is over 20" – lots of soaking room. This bath will take 60 – 68 gallons of hot water. This will be a problem with a 40 gallon water heater.
If the bath tub is also going to be used as a shower, think about rim height. Usually over 20" - 21" is cumbersome to climb over on a daily basis to take a shower.
