Buying a Hot Tub

What Happens at a Wet Test?

There are many benefits that come from visiting a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub dealership. Among the most important steps you can take upon arrival, is getting into the hot tubs themselves. By stepping into a hot tub—whether it’s wet or dry—you’re more likely to find the model that best fits your needs.

If you have the opportunity to wet test a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, here are some tips.

To get the most out of the experience, it’s recommended that you bring the following items with you: a swimsuit, a towel or robe, a plastic bag to put your wet swimsuit in afterwards, and flip flops or slippers if you plan to get changed in the bathroom.

Before you arrive at the dealership, take a few moments to write down any questions that come to mind. It’s recommended that you do this, because after you experience the warm water and pulsating jets of a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, you’ll likely come up with new questions, while initial ones might slip your mind.

Once you get to the dealership, a representative will escort you to the wet-test area. Many dealers provide “wet-test rooms” to give guests greater privacy, or they offer to stay afterhours to ensure you receive the seclusion you desire. Most dealerships even invite you to bring your whole family to test out each of the different hot tub models.

Be sure to try out a variety of models and seats. Here are a few popular seats and the models in which you can experience them:

  • The ProAir™ Lounge Seat—Targeting muscle knots and tension in the neck, shoulders, and upper back, this lounge seat also eases tightness in the legs and lower back. Exclusively available in our J-300™ Collection
  • The FX-12 Therapy Seat—Designed to provide an advanced deep-tissue massage, this versatile seat employs adjustable spiral-action jets that provide a high-class hydromassage with full coverage of the back and neck. Exclusively available in our J-300™, J-400™ and J-500™ Collections
  • The MX2 Jet Therapy Seat—This curved seat cradles your body in the perfect position for an exceptional deep-tissue massage that concentrates on the larger lower-back muscle groups. Exclusively available in our J-LX®, J-400™, and J-500™ Collections
  • The RX Jet Therapy Seat—The pinnacle of performance, this top-tier seat provides a luxurious Swedish-style hydromassage that you control. Exclusively available in our J-LX® and J-400™ Collections, and in an upgraded version in our J-500™ Collection

Hot Tub Pre-Installation Checklist

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs are easily installed, but there are a number of things that you should expect prior to the arrival of your new relaxation station. Here are some things a reputable hot tub dealer will help you figure out before your spa arrives:

Does your city or county have any requirements, like a gate, fence, or steps that you need when you have a hot tub on your property?

Some cities have municipal codes in place to protect children, such as obligating owners to install gates, fencing, or other such barriers to deny access to unsupervised children. Your local Jacuzzi® Hot Tub dealer will have that information ready for you and help guide you through the installation process.

How much room do installers need to get your hot tub into your yard?

Installation of your new hot tub requires a completely unobstructed route to ensure that the unit does not incur any damage along the way. Double check all gates and entranceways to ensure sufficient clearance. Determine ahead of time the route that the installer should take when your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub arrives. Keep an eye out for objects that might hinder the delivery team in any way, and remove those obstacles in advance of the installer’s arrival. Also inspect your yard for any overhanging branches, rain gutters, or protruding electrical meters that might impede the installation process. Are there more than 6 consecutive stairs without a landing in your delivery route? If so, you must consult your Jacuzzi dealer prior to delivery to make adequate preparations.

Indoor or outdoor? On a deck or on the ground?  Grass or gravel underneath? Does the location you’ve chosen make sense?

Due to the heft of the hot tub, water, and happy bathers inside, it’s of the utmost import that the foundation upon which your unit sits is completely level and capable of equally distributing the weight that rests upon it. Your hot tub dealer will help you decide which type of foundation is best for you.

What are the electrical requirements?

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs that are installed in the United States must meet the wiring specifications established by the National Electric Code (NEC) as well as any other state or local codes. Any circuitry must be installed by a professional electrician and receive approval an appropriate inspection official.

Owning a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub can instantly increase your quality of life by providing a relaxing hydromassage and a variety of other health benefits. Before your hot tub arrives, check out this video to see how you’re the installation may go.

6 Steps to Finding the Right Bathtub for Your Home: Part 2

Last week, we discussed three of the six steps to finding the right Jacuzzi® Bathtub for you. Today, we’ll explore additional steps to take to ensure you get the ideal model for your home:

 4. Select Your Bathtub Experience

What type of experience do you want to have when you relax in your bathtub? Jacuzzi offers a number of options for you to select from.

For the ultimate in relaxation, look into a Salon® Spa bathtub. This tub combines powerful jets and air bubbles to soothe your body and relax tired, tight muscles. Choose the Whirlpool for a hydromassage session—the massage these jets provide is one of the best things you can do for your body.

Another option is the Pure Air® Bath, which provides a gentle, soothing massage via warm air in hundreds of bubbles. This bathtub features 360-degree air inlets, giving you a full-body experience. Lastly, the Soaking bathtub is the perfect antidote to a long, busy day. Stretch out and take advantage of its ergonomic design. This bathtub allows a quiet, calm soak, so make sure you bring your favorite book in with you.

5. Decide on a Bathing Depth

From deep soaking to easy entry, deciding how much water you expect to use in your bathtub is an important factor to weigh. So, be sure to verify your hot water heater’s capacity. You can do that by finding the gallon amount on the Energy Guide tag located on the side of the unit itself or in your owner’s manual. This will help you ascertain whether your water heater can manage the volume your tub requires, allowing you to enjoy warm, soothing baths without overtaxing your unit.

6. Understand Your Faucet Options

If you’re on the market for a new bathtub, remember to consider your faucet choices. This can have a big influence on what type and size of bathtub will fit best in your space.

A floor-mounted faucet will add a unique touch, but you’ll need more room around the bathtub to install one, so take careful measurements. A wall-mounted faucet contributes to a sleek, modern look, and produces a longer water arch. This setup also leaves your bathtub with more surface space. On the other hand, should you have limited space around your tub, choosing to mount a faucet on the deck area may be your best option, as well as a more economical choice.

With your bathtub specifications in hand, visit our website or your local dealer showroom to view Jacuzzi® Bathtubs from our Comfort and Luxury collections. In just a few steps, you can find the right bathtub for your home.

6 Steps to Finding the Right Bathtub for Your Home: Part 1

Whether you’re upgrading your current bathtub or designing a new bathroom from scratch, ascertaining a few key specs from your space are critical before you pick out your future bathtub. From determining your installation options to ensuring you choose the right material, here are the first three steps to finding the right bathtub for your home.

1. Choose a Bathtub Size

Jacuzzi® Bathtubs are identified by length, width, and height, but as you contemplate your choices, consider who will be using the tub. If your bathtub will be primarily utilized by children, look for a model with low sides that will make it safe to enter and exit the tub, as well as easy for parents to reach in and help bathe the kids.

 

If your bathtub needs to accommodate multiple people, look for a model that can comfortably seat two and features a center drain. A particularly tall person may want to consider a 6-foot bathtub to ensure comfort and plenty of space while bathing. If you’re a solo bather, a bathtub with a high back, like the Era™ Slipper bathtub, is great for reclining and letting your worries fade away.

 

For remodels, be sure to make note of the location of the drain–whether left, right, or center–on the bathtub you are intending to replace to ensure the model you choose will be able to align with your drain.

2. Determine a Bathtub Installation Type

Before you choose a style of bathtub for your dream bathroom, you first need to determine which installation type will work in your intended space. Freestanding, drop-in, undermount, alcove, or skirted, the installation type often is determined not only by your style preference, but also by the space you have for your future bathtub.

 

Not sure which style will work for you? If you’re upgrading, take a photo of your existing space and allow a showroom expert to help you determine which models you can consider.

3. Explore Your Ideal Bathtub Material

All Jacuzzi® Luxury Bathtubs are created from high-quality Luxecast™ Solid Surface or acrylic materials.

 

Our Luxecast™ Solid Surface is a high-grade blend of the finest natural minerals and state-of the-art engineered materials. The uniformly non-porous material resists wear, soil and stain, and is also easy to clean. Luxecast™ Solid Surface is also thick and insulating, making it warm to the touch. Our high-gloss acrylic offers a non-porous surface retains heat and is easy to clean. The durable acrylic material comes in a variety of colors and boasts the benefit of also being scratch repairable.

 

Those are just the first three steps to finding the right bathtub for your home. In our next post, we’ll go even more in depth and provide three more helpful steps.

Fast Facts You Didn’t Know About Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs

Whether you already own a hot tub or are considering adding one to your home, there may be a few things you didn’t know about these warm-water retreats. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs enhance your personal health regimen and certainly liven up your backyard gatherings, but they also have a rich history and interesting role to play in people’s lives. Here are seven interesting fast facts about Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs:

The use of hot tubs extends back thousands of years in human history

In Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Japan, people believed in their positive cleansing and therapeutic effects. The original models were naturally occurring hot springs or baths into which scalding rocks were lowered. Later hot tubs included fire-heated basins, then evolved into the more modern versions that are crafted from wood, cement, stainless steel, acrylic, and plastic.

Jacuzzi® Hot Tub technology originated in the aviation and agricultural industries

The seven Jacuzzi brothers were innovative engineers. After developing the first enclosed-cabin monoplane, they revolutionized the agricultural industry in 1925 by creating the first submersible pump. When a young Jacuzzi family member developed rheumatoid arthritis, the brothers created an aerating submersible pump to provide pain-reveling hydrotherapy treatments in the bathtub.

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs provide several different types of therapy, aside from hydromassage

Hydromassage is just one of the health benefits you can reap with a home spa. You can also enjoy chromatherapy, using various colors of light to calm and rejuvenate, and reflexology, targeting pressure points on your hands and feet to relieve tension.

Hot tub technology is continually being innovated and improved

Water jets, heating, and circulation features are always getting better, and much more energy efficient and affordable than most people realize. Some models cost only $14 a month in energy costs.

Hot tub cleaning and upkeep is pretty easy and affordable

It doesn’t take daily scrubbing and expensive equipment to keep a hot tub in pristine condition. With a bit of vigilance – regular checks of your water’s chemical balance and filtration – you’ll only need to drain your tub every 3 to 6 months, depending on frequency of use.

A Jacuzzi® Dealership holds a Guinness World Record

The title for the most nationalities in a single hot tub belongs to a spa dealership in Alicante, Spain. In 2012, people from 26 countries squeezed into a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub for a quick five-minute splash to claim the Guinness World Record.

It’s easy to update your hot tub and keep it current

Even if your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub is a few years old, you can easily update it with a variety of accessories, from spa covers, lifts, wind guards, and lighted steps that will lend even greater personalization.

You can find more fun facts and useful information on hot tubs by visiting our website’s Owner’s Corner and get updates via our official Facebook and Twitter pages.

Beyond Relaxation: Your Hot Tub’s Best Therapeutic Benefits

Your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub does not just offer you a relaxing place to unwind; you’re making an investment in your health. Soaking in your hot tub provides therapeutic benefits, which can foster mental and physical improvements. Here are some of the best types of therapy provided by Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs:

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy involves using water to combat physical problems and promote overall health. It can improve blood circulation, take the weight off tired joints, and generally promote relaxation while lowering stress levels. Jacuzzi® Hot Tub jets provide a form of hydrotherapy called hydromassage, where streams of air and water are directed to specific areas of your body. This, combined with the heat of the water and the natural buoyancy attained by floating, provides a unique massage to all parts of your body.

Reflexology

Reflexology homes in on the feet and the hands. According to The Mayo Clinic, “Pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person’s health.” It is believed that pressing on specific areas of the foot may lead to physical improvements in corresponding parts of the body. Jacuzzi® Hot Tub jets, when directed at your hands or areas of your feet, provide reflexology sessions in the comfort of your spa. When the stream from the jets reaches those tender areas, you’ll enjoy a pleasant pressure and a release of tension as you relax.

Chromatherapy

Color can have a distinct effect on mood. In a 1985 study by L.D. Rosenstein, it was reported that test scores and mental state varied depending on what color room the participants were in. Chromatherapy draws on the suggestion that various hues and types of light can relax and soothe you. Replace your spa bulbs with blue or yellow lights, for example, to truly feel relaxed and at peace in your spa.

Now that you are aware of the many therapies your spa can perform, you will be able to utilize it to benefit your health more fully.

Jet Setting: Determining Which Type of Spa Jets are Best for You

Whether you purchase a hot tub to improve your physical and mental health or for relaxation, hydromassage plays a large role in getting to your goal. Dr. Bruce D. Bradley of Loma Linda University’s Department of Physical Therapy explains that “hydromassage jets, properly positioned in a warm bath or spa, can assist in circulation of the extremities.” This is why we extensively research the placement of each specialized jet throughout our hot tubs. Here are our most popular jets to consider when determining which type of spa jets are best for you:

Hydromassage for Your Back

For a jet that delivers a powerful massage that targets discomforts and ailments in your back, consider the following jets:

PowerPro® RX: Rotate the dial on the face of the jet to point it in the direction you want, as well as to adjust the pressure. This jet features a spinning action, and feels like a steady pulse against large portions of your back.

PowerPro® FX Rotational: Air and water move in circles against your back, evoking the sensation of thumbs pressing against those overlooked areas. This jet is similar to the PowerPro® RX, but homes in on smaller muscle groups.

PowerPro® FX Large Rotational: This jet provides a strong massage across a wide group of muscles. The ample reach of this jet ensures steady pressure against larger muscles, not unlike the repeated strong pressure of a Swedish massage.

 

Hydromassage for Your Legs and Feet

Legs and feet often go unrewarded for their constant hard work. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs alleviate the aches and pains that may come with being constantly on the go with jets installed all along the bottom of the seat and the hot tub itself, reaching these long-ignored appendages. These jets include:

PowerPro® FX Small: Enjoy a strong hydromassage that focuses on smaller portions of the body, providing a steady stream of vigorous pressure on a particular spot. This is a directional jet, perfect for overworked lower extremities. Use this jet to relieve sore calves, calloused heels, and tender arches.

PowerPro® FX: This jet creates a stream of air and water that also targets smaller muscle groups. Adjust the pressure and allow the jet’s circular motion to swirl pressure against your achy joints.

PowerPro® BX: This “bubbler” jet focuses exclusively on the calves. Pressure bubbles pulse steadily along your legs, refreshing your skin and reinvigorating tired muscles.

 

Hydromassage for Hard-to-Reach Places

These two jets specifically focus on areas you might forget:

PowerPro® PX: This jet delivers a pulsing massage to small muscle groups, such as the ones in your wrists and hands. Muscles you use frequently while typing at a computer all day are typically ignored in traditional hydrotherapy sessions.

PowerPro® NX2: This jet focuses entirely on the neck, directing a high-pressure stream of water toward the small muscle groups there. This focused jet is also adjustable to help you massage your tension away.

While a number of these jets are available on all Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, there are a handful that are found only in specific models. Find your local dealer to help you choose the best model for your needs.
