With every Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, you can rest assured a high-quality product inside and out. Superior and simple water care is one of the most unique aspects of a Jacuzzi® hot tub and all Jacuzzi hot tubs have UV standard, while the J-300 and J-400 Collections have an Ozone option. Every Jacuzzi® hot tub comes either standard with the SmartTub® remote monitoring system or it can be added to ensure ease of use at the touch of a button (or smart device). All Jacuzzi® hot tubs in these collections exceed California Energy Commission standards and offer tool-free access to the spa’s equipment area.


As you ask yourself what’s the difference between the three Jacuzzi® Hot Tub Collections, it’s just as important to ask which of the features of each model best suit your specific needs. Before doing any serious hot tub shopping, make sure you know what you most want to get out of your hot tub experience. Here are a few things you should ask yourself to help you narrow down your choice:


  • What’s my budget?
  • How many people will be using the hot tub at a time?
  • What is the purpose of my hot tub — for socializing, recovery or both?
  • How important are technology and cutting-edge features to me?
  • Do I prefer to be lounging or sitting upright during a soak?

Once you’ve answered these questions, you’ll be prepared for a visit to a local dealer or showroom. Looking for a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub Dealer near you?
