The Origins of Jacuzzi
You have to go back to the middle of the 20th century to see how Jacuzzi’s storied history took shape. In 1956, the Jacuzzi family created a portable hydrotherapy pump to help treat a family member’s painful arthritis. After the hospital community learned of this gadget’s remarkable success, it embraced the technology of the pump (called the J-300) and its health benefits. Patients and their joint pain were then treated on a wide scale.
In 1968, Jacuzzi incorporated the hydrotherapy pump into the inside walls of its tubs, which created the first ever self-contained whirlpool. A new industry was born, setting the table for Jacuzzi’s next advancement. In 1970, Jacuzzi added heating and filtration systems to its tubs in order to keep them clean and warm. Thus, the first outdoor spa was created.
Jacuzzi Tub Types
Today, Jacuzzi features an expanded luxury tub environment, with four types of therapeutic tubs. A Jacuzzi soaking tub is the most common type of tub, and this basic concept is Jacuzzi’s foundation for hydrotherapy tubs. Jacuzzi Pure Air tubs range from a bubbly champagne-like experience to a steadier stream of bubbles, depending entirely on the setting chosen by the user.
Next, Jacuzzi Whirlpool tubs feature jets that are strategically placed to target major muscle groups for a full massage. Finally, the Jacuzzi Salon Spa is Jacuzzi most advanced and luxurious tub option, combining Jacuzzi’s Pure Air and Whirlpool technologies. The user can choose from more than a dozen unique experiences to be tailored to any unique setting for the ultimate in hydrotherapy.
Jacuzzi Installation Types
Jacuzzi features multiple different installation types for its tubs. The most common type of tub is the Jacuzzi drop in tub. For installation, these tubs are simply lowered into a framed enclosure, and they also include Jacuzzi’s largest variety of available sizes and shapes.
Similar to the drop in tub is Jacuzzi’s undermount tub. The undermount tub is also set into an opening, and the finishing materials are designed to cover the lip of the tub. This helps to create a distinctly professional and modern appearance.
Another very popular installation type is the alcove tub. Jacuzzi’s alcove tubs are installed into a three-wall tiled niche, as the side No. 4 is either a shower curtain or glass shower door.
Bridging the gap between an indoor/outdoor tub and a common tub, is the Jacuzzi corner tub. This tub type helps to maintain an open floor type, and they commonly have enough room for two bathers.
The first type of tub ever created by man was the freestanding tub. And, despite hundreds of years in technological advances, the freestanding tub remains a favorite, to which Jacuzzi can attest. The classic clawfoot design is incredibly popular, as is the more modern European design.
For our aging population, Jacuzzi’s walk in tub is designed to provide safe, secure, and easy tub access. Baby Boomers are opting to remain in their homes longer, and a walk in tub is an outstanding option.
Adding to Jacuzzi’s fabulous range of therapy tubs and installation types are its innovative technologies. Jacuzzi AccuPro jets are the building blocks for Jacuzzi’s Whirlpool tub, and send out a precise, pinpointed flow of water and air to target specific trouble spots on the user’s body.
Jacuzzi TheraPro jets combine power with higher water flow and air integration for a more vigorous and even massage. Jacuzzi TheraPro jets are fully adjustable and customizable and designed to direct the whirlpool action to any desired target area.
Jacuzzi’s Chromatherapy lighting is a very popular type of therapy. It features two lenses of LED lights installed below the water line, and provides plenty of color options for just the right mood. A white light also ensures safe tub entry and exit. Jacuzzi Chromatherapy lights can be fixed to a single color or set to slowly rotate through the color spectrum.
Jacuzzi’s other color therapy is Illumatherapy. This immerses the user completely in light, and features LED lighting in the bathing well. Illumatherapy also offers four points of entry, with two on each side of the tub, and air bubbles spraying from the jets give the appearance of dancing as they reflect the light.
Think a Jacuzzi tub is too loud? Think again. Jacuzzi’s Whisper technology features a patented pump mount system that absorbs half of the vibrations and cuts the tub’s heating and pump systems sounds in half.
