If you want to learn about Jacuzzi hot tubs you've come to the right place. The Jacuzzi hot tub blog is a one stop shop for everything you need to know before, during and after you have purchased your Jacuzzi hot tub. Browse our recent posts below to see what's new.
Let’s face it. Everybody feels a little gloomy or off-balance once in awhile, sometimes for no reason. My grandmother used to describe it as being “down in the dumps.” This may surprise you, but hydrotherapy can help us beat the blues!
I’m not talking about throwing a wild hot tub party (but go ahead, if that works for you). The combination of heat, buoyancy and massage that you experience in a Jacuzzi truly is hydro “therapy.” It can lift your spirits, coax you into a better frame of mind, and help your body function more smoothly.
Here’s how a Jacuzzi session can affect your mood in positive ways:
A hot tub lets you get away from it all. Spas and hot tubs are backyard escapes from the harried world of computers, cell phones and TV. Even a few moments of freedom from these typical stressors can give you the chance to slow down and find balance.
Physical warmth may improve emotional wellbeing, according to a series of Yale University studies. The studies cited evidence that when people feel lonely or isolated, they take long, warm baths and showers “to restore the missing warmth.” Spas and hot tubs have the same effect.
The relaxing properties of hydromassage can soothe anxiety and depression. Massage reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol – too much can increase blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Massage can also boost the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which can help relieve depression.*
There are many ways to lift your spirits and boost your body’s production of feel-good signals (chocolate is quick and easy!). Jacuzzi owners can take advantage of the naturally therapeutic benefits of warm-water massage every day.
Shoppers always ask about the work involved in taking care of hot tubs and spas. With our new Jacuzzi® models, maintenance is incredibly simple, thanks to advanced filtration and purification systems. I should say “thanks” to our engineers! The innovative technology used to design the optimum system for each specific model means everything works in sync. The water stays cleaner longer and chemical usage is minimal.
Here are 5 simple tips to keep your hot tub’s water clean, systems running smoothly, and everything looking new:
• Use only the best hot tub parts and supplies: genuine Jacuzzi® products.
• Clean and replace your filters as needed.
• Remove leaves and debris from your hot tub cover and keep it clean. Ask your Jacuzzi dealer about easy maintenance for your model’s cover.
• Avoid going into the water with oils and heavy lotions on your skin – they can leave a film on the sides of the hot tub.
• Drain, clean and refill your spa every 3-4 months, depending on your usage.
The best hot tub breakthrough in easy water maintenance is the CLEARRAY® Water Management System. It uses natural UV-C light technology and doesn’t add any gas or chemical by-products to the water. You can cut down the amount of chemicals needed by about 50%, and it instantly kills up to 99% of waterborne bacteria. You can relax because the water’s clear and fresh without a lot of work on your part.
To get details on maintaining specific models, the person to talk to is your authorizedJacuzzi® Hot Tubs dealer. They know the models inside and out, and have experience helping people who have purchased hot tubs and spas. I recommend contacting a Jacuzzi dealer near you or stopping by the showroom to learn more.

Spa Owner: Mark W. Hot Tub Installation Location: Tecumseh, MI Dealer: Landmark Home Leisure Spa Model: J-345
Why did you choose to install it in this location? We just finished construction of a brand new deck and our pictures were taken literally as it was just completed. I designed the deck to create a flowing design with 3 unique zones. The grilling/dining area. The lower level with integrated bench & granite end tables for the fire pit, and the spa area – just off the master bedroom. The spa area is private and has views of the entire deck plus the woods and pond below. Plus, our J-345™ is only 6 feet from our sliding doorwall, which is going to be a welcome distance in cold & snowy Michigan winters!
What benefits do you receive from hot tub ownership? Our home has become our oasis…we find that in tough economic times, we can actually enjoy a vacation everyday right in our own backyard. Owning a spa is something we used to seek out in resorts, now we have our own to enjoy every day.
How do you use your hot tub the most? i.e. entertaining, arthritis therapy, relaxing etc. We truly enjoy the togetherness in the spa brings our family, I bet you’d probably could get a different answer from each member. My 10 year old daughter loves to play with her friends in it. My 18 year old daughter likes to hangout and converse with friends. My wife enjoys the relaxation and calm it brings her totally hectic life. And for me, I love to be in the outdoors, see the trees and sunset through the rising mist. Plus, we all love to soak in the cool glow of the ambient lights under the stars.
Why did you choose to purchase a Jacuzzi® brand hot tub versus another brand? Overall best value. Smart size for family for four and fit well for specific location. The fit, finish and materials were superior to other brands explored. The quality of jets were super. And also a big factor…the styling. Beautiful aesthetics, sculpted design, attractive integrated lighting and truly comfortable seating. We shopped extensively online and in-stores and probably have every spa DVD produced! Lastly, the Jacuzzi reputation for quality (we have a Jacuzzi bath in home) made our decision easy.
