Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs —

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs have proven time and again to be the leader in the hot tub industry. With more than 60 years of excellence in hydrotherapy and legendary performance, reliability and ease of use, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs are the standard by which all wellness products are measured. This legacy began in the early 1900s when the Jacuzzi family came to the U.S., where the Jacuzzi brothers started a tradition of innovation in agriculture and aviation which gave rise to an entirely new industry—their home hydrotherapy products.

In the 1940s Candido Jacuzzi invented a therapeutic hydrotherapy pump to provide his toddler son Kenneth with relief from his rheumatoid arthritis. This product was initially used in a normal bathtub and soon after developed into the first of the rejuvenating hydromassage hot tubs that the company sells around the world today.

Still an innovator in the market, the Jacuzzi® company recently introduced its newest line of hot tubs, the Jacuzzi® JLX® Collection, that feature Infrared and Red Light therapy, taking hydrotherapy to the next level to provide the ultimate wellness experience. This exclusive breakthrough technology is now also featured in the Jacuzzi® J-400™ Collection models.

Regardless of the Jacuzzi® Hot Tub model you choose, you can rest assured that you have selected a luxury spa that was manufactured to exceed the most meticulous standards, built with the most durable materials, and designed to be a fixture of your self-care oasis for years to come.

When shopping for the top rated hot tubs, you’ll, of course, want to take brand longevity and reputation into consideration. You’ll also want to consider your personal wish list of wants and needs. This will ensure you purchase the best hot tub for your needs that will provide you with enjoyment, fun, bonding time with loved ones, and blissful relaxation and rejuvenation for many years. Imagine how you will be using your hot tub. To help further determine your needs you can ask yourself:

•Who will be enjoying my hot tub with me?

•How can I most benefit from my hot tub?

•Do I want deep hydromassage for soothing relief or an enticing environment that sets the stage for entertainment, intimate couples’ time, or both?

•How often do I plan to use my hot tub? For an occasional entertainment getaway for social gatherings or as a weekly or nightly retreat from the stressors of the workday?

Here are some of the best features to consider when searching top rated spas:

Brand reliability and product durability — These things often go hand in hand. As you search for the best manufacturers in the market, you can feel confident that choosing a spa from a top rated hot tub brand can result in an excellent product that will stand the test of time. Of course, solid warranties and stellar continued customer service to help you navigate any potential problems your hot tub may experience down the line are also invaluable.

High-quality specialized jets — naturally hydrotherapy is likely a large part of your hot tub purchase decision. The jets are what truly set one hot tub apart from the next. Look for a combination of specialty jets throughout the spa that can allow you to customize your hydromassage and that delivers hydrotherapy from head to toe.

Design and aesthetics — As you create your rejuvenating spa oasis at home, you’ll want to be visually stimulated by your hot tub from the first moment you lay your eyes on it. Next, you’ll want your hot tub to lull you to a blissful state through a variety of sensory experiences. Think soothing lighting, gently flowing waterfalls, a quality sound system, and more that can take your soak to the next level.

Ultimately, when you’ve reviewed the top hot tub brands, researched the various models, and narrowed down your list of must-have features that will enhance your spa experience, a visit to a nearby spa dealership can help you decide on the best hot tub for you. While there, you will have a chance to see, feel, and experience some of the top rated hot tub brands. This will also give you an opportunity to ask specific questions about each manufacturer’s products, features, warranties, financing options, and more.
