Estimated read time: 3-5 minutes
Author: Lisa Ruggles

When it comes to exploring the realm of hot tubs and spas, you've likely encountered both hot tubs and Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs. However, it's important to note that Jacuzzi® is a specific brand and should not be used interchangeably with the term "hot tub." This common linguistic habit is akin to referring to vacuum cleaners as Hoover®, plastic containers as Tupperware®, road surfaces as Tarmac™, or sticky tape as Sellotape®*. As you can see, the list goes on!

Are you familiar with this habit? Many of us innocently fall into it without realising that behind these names lies a brand that produces a distinct product. In this article, we will shed light on the Jacuzzi® brand and clarify why not all hot tubs can be considered Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs. Armed with this knowledge, you'll be equipped with accurate and valuable information to share with friends and family.

Hot tubs and Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs differ in terms of their brand names and manufacturing processes.

A hot tub typically refers to a small to medium-sized structure that contains water, which can be heated. These tubs commonly come equipped with seats, jets, and filters, providing a bubbly and invigorating water experience.

On the other hand, Jacuzzi® is a brand that specialises in manufacturing its own hot tubs, swim spas, baths, and saunas. The name "Jacuzzi" originates from the surname of the Jacuzzi brothers, who invented the J-300 pump for a bath. Over time, this invention evolved into what we now recognize as a hot tub.

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs are renowned for several distinctive features, including high-quality hydromassage jets inspired by the original J-300 pump, efficient water filtration systems, comfortable seating, stylish designs, and recent innovations such as SmartTub®.

An inflatable hot tub is a portable version that can be easily set up and dismantled by inflating or deflating its flexible walls. This option provides an affordable alternative to traditional tubs, particularly for individuals residing in apartments, houses without side access, or those seeking temporary tubs for specific times of the year. Inflatable tubs are also an excellent choice for those who desire a relaxing soak without the hassle of installation.

These tubs are available in various sizes, colors, and shapes, and some models even feature hydrotherapy jets and LED lighting. While inflatables are generally cheaper to purchase than hardshell options, they may incur higher operational costs due to more frequent emptying, refilling, and water heating requirements.

It's worth noting that the lifespan of an inflatable tub is limited, typically lasting a few years at most. In comparison, quality hardshell options can provide up to 20 years or more of use.

By understanding the distinctions between hot tubs and Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, as well as exploring the possibilities offered by inflatable tubs, you can make informed decisions when choosing the ideal spa experience.
