    Launching in March 2013, Aquatic's Serenity Drift bath uses unique technology to offer gentle massage. Rather than air, the jets move water through the tub for "effervescence" without the noise and impact of bubbles. The water is circulated over the tub's motor to capture more heat and dampen the motor sound.
