Soaking in a hot tub is a wonderful way to relax, rejuvenate, and unwind any time. When you purchase a hot tub, you’re not only investing in your own self-care and wellbeing but the wellbeing of your family members and friends as well.

Enjoying your hot tub with loved ones is a great way to recharge while also socializing, connecting, bonding, and entertaining. If you are considering a hot tub for these benefits and beyond, this article is designed to help you find the perfect hot tub for your needs.

One of the most important aspects of a hot tub for high-quality hydrotherapy is the underwater jets. When shopping for a hot tub with underwater jets, there are several key things you’ll want to keep in mind. This article will cover those important aspects to ensure you choose the perfect hot tub with underwater jets. Read on to learn more about how hot tub jets can enhance your hydromassage experience.

What is a hot tub with underwater jets?

When you think about a typical hot tub, you are likely envisioning a portable hot tub. These are self-contained hot tubs that typically have powerful underwater jets to deliver top-notch hydrotherapy. Other hot tubs such as in-ground hot tubs may have underwater jets, but they usually do not have the same level of power and massage that portable hot tubs with underwater jets do.

Another example is an inflatable or blow-up hot tub. Rather than underwater jets, these types of hot tubs have bubblers that create the sensation of bubbling water; however, they do not have true underwater jets that deliver hydromassage like a portable hot tub.

If you are looking for underwater jets that will provide you with soothing and relaxing hydrotherapy that can ease tense and sore muscles, your best bet is a high-performance portable hot tub such as a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub.

How do underwater jets work?

Underwater jets in a luxury hot tub are designed to provide you with hydrotherapy that can help provide relief for sore muscles and tense joints. The Jacuzzi® brand is the originator of jetted-tub hydrotherapy and has mastered the art of jet technology for your total body relaxation and rejuvenation.

With a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, control and customization of your hydromassage are at your fingertips so you can fully immerse yourself in a relaxing and rejuvenating hot tub experience. Proprietary Jacuzzi® PowerPro® Jets emphasize 360-degree air induction to provide a unique high-volume, low-pressure massage. These jets gently deliver a deeper, more intense massage experience, leaving you feeling refreshed and reenergized long after you step out of your hot tub.

Jacuzzi® Jets are also strategically placed to target specific muscle groups, yet you are in charge of customizing them to suit your hydromassage needs. You can adjust the flow, intensity, and feel of each jet using individual air controls in every seat. This allows you to create the massage that is just right for you every time.

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs feature specific jets that are designed for different purposes and to target specific muscle groups. Through versatile Jacuzzi® PowerPro® jets, you can enjoy a range of massages, from robust and stimulating to gentle and rejuvenating. With Jacuzzi® underwater jets, you can enjoy targeted relief anywhere you need it.

For example, the Jacuzzi® MX is the original performance jet that started it all. The MX jets feature completely adjustable nozzles with a 60-degree range of focus that produce bold, high-volume massage action. Jacuzzi® RX Jets emit powerful, steady pulses for large areas of your back, relieve tension in your middle and upper back and deliver a full-coverage massage.

Jacuzzi® FX Jets feature an exclusive spiral design that focuses on smaller muscle groups, stimulates pressure points in your shoulders, back, and feet, and drives energetic impact with a spiral flow. Jacuzzi® NX Jets target your neck with a highly focused stream and massage tension and strain in your sensitive neck area. You can move the nozzle of these jets to personalize your massage direction.

Jacuzzi® PX Jets provide relief to pressure points on your hands while delivering gentle pulses on your palms and wrists, which can soothe discomfort in these areas. And the Jacuzzi® BX Jets, which feature the highest air-to-water ratio in the Jacuzzi® Collection, are patented to reinvigorate your leg muscles.

Depending on which Jacuzzi® Hot Tub model and the seating options you choose, your massage experience will feature a combination of these jets to create unparalleled bliss. For example, the Jacuzzi® ProAir™ Lounge eases tension in your shoulders and back by combining FX and FX-R rotational jets along the center of your back. It also features exclusive BX Jets that target your calves with an invigorating, bubbly massage and FX Jets that penetrate the muscles of your feet with therapeutic relief.

On the other hand, the Jacuzzi® FX Therapy Seat offers full coverage neck, shoulder, and back relief through a collection of 10 to 12 FX Jets that deliver a stimulating spiral-action deep tissue massage. This collection of jets works to relieve aches from your neck and shoulders through your entire back. The pressure of these jets is adjustable so you can personalize your massage.

In addition to these specialty jets and seats, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs feature foot domes to provide overall tension relief. The foot dome creates a targeted reflexology massage that increases energy, boosts circulation, and stimulates nerve function throughout your entire body. This tension-relieving action induces a deep state of relaxation, all while keeping you in the perfect position to enjoy your full body hydromassage.

The Jacuzzi® brand has also recently introduced the newest innovation in underwater jets — Infrared and Red Light therapy. Jacuzzi® is the only brand to offer IR and Red Light therapy across a range of its wellness products including not only hot tubs but swim spas and saunas as well.

The Jacuzzi® FX-IR seat combines IR and Red Light therapy with unmatched hydrotherapy that both relaxes and rejuvenates you from head to toe. You can enjoy the therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy plus the rejuvenating power of Infrared, and the regenerative qualities of Red Light therapy, all that work together deep beneath your skin’s surface to relieve pain, improve your range of motion, and help you reach a state of mindfulness during your spa experience.

Through this seat, you will receive jet pressure that delivers varied massage through surface contact, specialized deep Red Light, which reaches surface tissue and cells, and Near Infrared, which is positioned to target deep tissue within the lumbar region of your lower back.

How can I find the perfect hot tub with underwater jets?

Exclusive proprietary Jacuzzi® Jets can be found in every Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. So regardless of which model you choose, you can rest assured that you will receive an unmatched hydromassage.

If you are seeking next-level hydromassage with the combination of IR and Red Light therapy, you might consider a model in the new Jacuzzi® J-LX® Collection.
