History of Jacuzzi Tubs
Around the turn of the century, seven Jacuzzi brothers immigrated from Italy to California. A family of inventors, they developed the first-ever enclosed cabin monoplane. Used by the U.S. Postal Service for trips from San Francisco to the then hard to reach Yosemite, CA, this invention was in itself a masterpiece. But it was the later invention of the first hydrotherapy pump by third generation Roy Jacuzzi, which would eventually make Jacuzzi a household name for millions of people worldwide.
Created to relieve family members' arthritis, the early J-300 portable pump (pictured) was quickly picked up by hospitals to help patients with joint pain. With the success of this primitive model, in 1968, Roy brought to market the first self contained whirlpool tub. By incorporating jets into the sides of the tub, it became the bath that almost single-handedly created an industry. As larger units were designed to accommodate several people, Jacuzzi incorporated heating and filtration systems to keep the water warm and clean, thus creating the first spa in 1970.
Today, Jacuzzi has become the world's most recognized and largest selling brand of jetted/whirlpool baths and spas. In addition to the first whirlpool bath patent, Jacuzzi has 250 worldwide patents for advancements in pump systems, jet technology, air controls and product design. This ongoing commitment to innovative product development ensures Jacuzzi's leadership position in the industry, and sets standards the world over.
The Jacuzzi Experience
As the industry leader in innovation, Jacuzzi has developed and maintained their position by producing an excellent variety of world-class tubs. Going well beyond the average soaker varieties, Jacuzzi offers a total of four variations of each of their bathtubs. In order pictured, these four are: soaking, Pure Air, whirlpool, and Salon Spa.
The foundation for any hydrotherapy experience, a Jacuzzi soaking bathtub offers a simple, yet soothing bathing experience. While absent of spa-like features, Jacuzzi soaking tubs are very popular due to the Italian design characteristics Jacuzzi tubs are highly regarded for. For those seeking a bit more, Jacuzzi Pure Air bathtubs take things further by integrating air into the bathing experience. Millions of effervescent bubbles create a delicate curtain of heated air that rises through the water. After this, comes the legendary selection of Jacuzzi whirlpool bathtubs. A perfect prescription for aching joints and sore muscles, whirlpools use targeted jets and warm, swirling waters to massage your body after a long day. The last experience offered by Jacuzzi is their most impressive. A Jacuzzi Salon Spa bathtub combines both the power of a therapeutic whirlpool experience and the calm, effervescence of Pure Air for the ultimate in relaxation. Simply stated - it's the best of both worlds.
The question now is, which one is best for you? If you are interested in the simple experience of being enveloped in warm water, choose a soaker. If you are interested in the ultimate in relaxation, Pure Air tubs will be the best choice. If you suffer from sore muscles and/or joint pain, whirlpool tubs will offer the deep tissue massage you are looking for. Or, if you prefer to have options each time you bathe, consider a Jacuzzi Salon Spa. For more information on all of Jacuzzi's experiences and more, click Jacuzzi University.
Whichever experience you decide on, know that you've already made the most important decision by choosing a Jacuzzi bathtub. Made from the highest quality acrylic, Jacuzzi bathtubs are non-porous, easy to clean, and corrosion, fade and stain resistant. In short - they are built to look as good as the day you bought the tub, 10 years down the road. Furthermore, all Jacuzzi bathtubs come with a limited lifetime warranty, so your investment is protected for as long as you own your home.
Jacuzzi Luxury and Comfort Whirlpools
Jacuzzi offers a total of 25 different whirlpool bathtubs. These collections of whirlpools are broken into three distinct lines of product: Comfort, Comfort Plus, and Luxury. Jacuzzi's Luxury line includes 13 of these collections while their Comfort line holds the other 12. For a list of all collections click here. Continue reading below for information on the difference between Luxury and Comfort lines.
As the name would suggest, Jacuzzi's Luxury line of whirlpool bathtubs boast the most complete offering of Jacuzzi's innovations. Deep bathing wells, enhanced user controls, top-of-the-line components and hardware, a multitude of jets, and a number of other high-end options are what define a Jacuzzi Luxury bath. These tubs were designed for those whom are designing a luxury bathroom and are looking for a statement-making bathroom centerpiece.
Jacuzzi's Comfort line of whirlpool bathtubs, while still very impressive, were designed for builders and home owners working within a budget. Generally a little less bathing depth and without the all of the extras you find in the Luxury line, these tubs offer everything you need for a simple, rejuvenating bath. Comfort models are split into two variations: Comfort, and Comfort Plus. Both follow the same concept of being a trimmed down version of the Jacuzzi tub, however plus models add components such as Chromatherapy - a valuable feature that allows for lights-off bathroom ambiance. Note: Jacuzzi Comfort and Jacuzzi Comfort Plus models are where you will find all skirted (apron-front, as pictured) model Jacuzzi bathtubs.
