PowerPro® NX2 Jets (4)

powerpro-px

PowerPro PX Jets (6)

The PX Jets provide a gentle pulsating massage which is perfect for small muscle groups in the wrist and hand. With the introduction of the PX, all the major muscle groups have hot tub jets developed to target specific needs. The strength of the hot tub jet can be adjusted for different rates of flow so you are able to customize the massage to what suits you best.


powerpro-fx

PowerPro® FX Jets (12)

Jacuzzi Hot Tubs introduced these jets, with their unique directional rifling action that creates a spiral stream of air and water – perfect for stimulating small muscle groups. Fully adjustable for high or low pressure, exclusive PowerPro FX Jets have a rejuvenating effect and can help overworked, overstressed muscles and joints.


powerpro-fx2s

PowerPro® FX Large Rotational Jets (6)

Patent-pending jets that deliver intense hydrotherapy without moving parts, the jets are the larger, more powerful version of the original Jacuzzi FX jets. Their distinct spiral action produces a surging stream of air and water that provides a vigorous massage to larger muscles in the back and shoulder areas.


powerpro-ix

PowerPro IX Jets (1)

Jacuzzi Hot Tubs PowerPro IX Jets create a dramatic stream of light and effervescence. The IX Jet merges maximum airflow with high-output LED lighting, sending multicolored, champagne-like bubbles from the bottom of the hot tub to the surface.

Based in the FX technology, the FX Small Jets are perfect for a focused massage on key pressure point areas, such as your feet. The jets are adjustable, making it easy for a spot-on foot massage.

Using the same FX technology, the PowerPro® FX Rotational Jet focuses on smaller muscle groups with a kneading effect to stimulate surrounding tissue.


powerpro-rx

PowerPro RX Jets (6)

The spinning action of the new patent-pending PowerPro RX hot tub jet is fully adjustable. Simply turn the dial on the face to customize the pressure or turn off the jet action entirely. Modest in size, the RX Jet covers a sizable area, reaching the key muscles and nerves of the back for a pampering hydromassage.


powerpro-mx2

PowerPro MX2 Jets (3)

Based on the form and function of the original Jacuzzi jet created 50 years ago, the new-generation, patented Jacuzzi Hot Tub MX2 Jets deliver maximum volume at a higher air-to-water ratio.

J-480 is rated 4.2308 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful tub The tub is great, relaxing, jets are awesome. Nice features like the stereo system and waterfall. The sales rep Meagan was very informative and even came by on her day off to check the area where we were going to put the tub. Overall great experience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with our whole Jacuzzi experience This tub is awesome- I swear it's like the best thing we ever did for our marriage. We are in it every night with the blinds closed. If every newlywed couple got a jacuzzi hot tub then divorce statistics would go down drastically. We are very happy with our whole experience with jacuzzi, from the store to the salesperson to the delivery and set up. The tub itself is like Cadillac of hot tubs- you will not be disappointed if you get one too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Tub - Not perfect I purchased this tub after replacing a Sundance Altamar 850 that I had for many years. Really like the size, outer cabinet, inner shell and lighting! Lounge is comfortable in design and length. Seats are up high enough were you don’t feel like you are going to get water in your face. Waterfalls are great and we sit in front of them often! Circ pump is strong but also because of its size, it’s pretty loud. Not a huge fan of the pickup for the number 1 pump going half through the filter and half through the floor (not filtered) especially when the second pump is entirely through the floor not Filtered. Also the two main pumps could be stronger without having to turn one seat off and focus all of the water to the other seat. Display is easy to use and overcomplicated all at the same time - takes a bit to get used to. It would be nice if you could turn on just one pump at a time rather than both on then turn one of them off. Delivery was botched by The Great Escape location that I purchased from. It felt like when the order was placed, no one had ever done a special order before nor did they fully understand the process. Delivery was 6 weeks after the order was placed On day 2 of ownership, I noticed 2 of the jets in the lounge were not "spinning correctly". I was given a local service company's number to call and replacement parts took almost 3 weeks to come in. On day 3 of ownership, half of the led lights quit working. I called the service company again and they said sometimes the wiring plugs for the lights get loose in transit. I pulled the cabinet cover and that was the case – problem solved. On day 4 of ownership there was a strange metal buzzing coming from cabinet. I removed main panel and noticed that the large copper ground lines were touching and vibrating against each other. A little adjustment and the vibration went away. While these are all little things, I would not expect these to happen on something that costs this much!! To boot, after removing the main panel from the cabinetry 3 times (initial electric hook up, lighting, vibration), the junk screws that are used are all either stripped or broken. Why are these not a heavier Stainless Steel?? All and all compared to what is out there on the market at this size and price, it is a good spa. Currently I am happy with it – hoping nothing else comes up!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would not recommend this overpriced spa. I have owned three other Jacuzzi spa in the past. The best was the Pinnacle....very well designed, jets properly placed and easy panel. This new Jacuzzi J480 is poorly designed for proper seating and jet placements. The UV light for "sterilization" is a joke. In order for a UV light to actual kill bacteria, there must be a specific contact time and coordinated water flow to achieve this contact/kill ratio fitted with the proper water flow throughout the unit. I think the UV is just a marketing gimmick. I suggest you shop around because Jacuzzi has lost their credibility with me. Over hyped and overpriced for the features you get for your money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trying to love it I got mine delivered and installed 08/08/14. So far not so good, the temp seems to have a mind of it's own, it goes up in temp on it's own. I have it set at 96, and last night I went to get in it and it was 104, a little to hot for August in Atlanta.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I had a arctic spa tub and if I was too compare the 2 tubs the Jaquzzi is better only concern is that the tub was scratched upon delivery and still has not been repaired
