hot tub and a Jacuzzi. Both are used to explain tubs of hot water which

In strict and most common usage there is no genuine difference between a
hot tub and a Jacuzzi. Both are used to explain tubs of hot water which
use jets of forced air to produce currents and bubbles, either for
therapeutic or strictly pleasurable purposes. Jacuzzi is a b rand name,
and so strictly speaking it portrays only those hot tubs and spas
manufactured by the Jacuzzi Company. The Jacuzzi brothers immigrated to
California from Italy in the early half of the 20th century, and
according to the company’s website were productive inventors. Starting
with aviation inventions, the Jacuzzi brothers moved into hydraulics,
making great strides with the agricultural pump. In 1956 they invented a
hydrotherapy pump for personal use. This pump, the J-300, was then sold
to hospitals and schools.

More about the hot tub

In 1968, Roy Jacuzzi created the first whirlpool spa, which he used to
call as the Roman. The Roman was based on the hydrotherapeutic pumps of
Roy’s parents and grandparents, integrating them flawlessly into a
standalone unit. Roy brought his creation around the country,
capitalizing on a national obsession with cleanliness, and it became an
overnight success to such a point that within a few short decades the
brand name has become virtually synonymous with the invention itself. In
informal use a hot tub is often seen as distinguished from a Jacuzzi or
spa by its lack of jets. In this sense any hot bath or basin of water
could be correctly referred to as a hot tub. More often, however, it is
used purposely when discussing such things as wooden barrel hot tubs,
often with wood-burning stoves or other alternative forms of heating.

Conclusion

This distinction does not hold up in industry discussions, and from the
point of view of a strict definition, it is best to treat hot tub and
Jacuzzi as mutually interchangeable words. Product literature, for
instance, refers often to Jacuzzi hot tubs, giving the general product
and the brand name. If we accept the meaning of hot tub as being
necessarily without jets, then the term Jacuzzi hot tub becomes an
oxymoron. Life is filled of stress. Wouldn’t it be nice to come home to a
bubbling, swirling soak in a hot tub to where you could sooth your
exhausted body and restore your mind and spirit? Hot tubs are the ideal
way to wind down, relax with family, and enjoy the company of friends.
There are factually hundreds of self-contained, portable hot tub models
available. If you take a little time to investigate brands, find a
qualified dealer, and test out the features, you’re sure to find a hot
tub that suits your budget and needs.
