Whenever you hear the term ‘jacuzzi’, you can expect the image of a hot tub flashing on your mind. You can probably also think of a small tub placed near your swimming pools that you can lounge on during hot or cold weather.
Interestingly, hot tubs and Jacuzzi are somewhat the same! ‘Jacuzzi’ is a trademarked brand for hot tubs. It is a business strategy, just like when a friend of yours would ask for a Kleenex, and you unconsciously give him or her your tissue box.
In this article, let’s have a fun discussion about jacuzzi to help you decide whether to have one or not.
Webster’s dictionary defined the word “jacuzzi” with two descriptions: 1) it is a whirlpool kind of bathtub with underwater jets to massage the body and; 2) it is the trademark of an Italian brand that manufactures hot tubs, bathtubs, and other recreational bathing tub or pool.
Simply put, a jacuzzi is also known as a hot tub. Its primary function is to provide pleasure or relaxation to people who use them. Sometimes, a hot tub is used as a form of hydrotherapy since there are some baths and hot tubs installed with jets that function as a massager to the body while bathing inside the said tubs.
What are the Different Types of Jacuzzi?
Now that we’ve defined what a jacuzzi is, you might be wondering if there are different types of these tubs that might become a unique feature in your home. Hot tubs are usually installed in two types:
This type is usually the one that is custom-built near a swimming pool or comes as an external part of the swimming pool due to it being a construction. Those who are interested in getting an inground jacuzzi should hire an experienced pool contractor since building this type needs a building permit. It is an option for people with the budget for building expenses, as constructing this type of jacuzzi can be costly given its features.
· Above ground
Above-ground hot tubs, on the other hand, are more convenient and less expensive. These types are the ones that come in different sizes and shapes. Their builds can also be wooden, inflatable, or portable as most of their functions can be built-in or customized. Users can place them in any ground space that they may find comfortable to their liking.
Are Jacuzzis Expensive?
A homeowner interested in having hot tubs or jacuzzi installed must expect that getting these tubs is not cheap. Generally speaking, a hot tub can cost approximately between $2,000 to $20,000.
The costs usually add up whenever a customer requests enhanced unique features for their hot tubs. Some of the unique features that would require additional charges are the following:
- improved massage jets
- heat and cooling systems
- audio system
- materials to build them
- smart features (e.g., remote control app, Bluetooth functions)
Even though these features are costly, hot tubs guarantee a relaxing experience, not to mention an increase in home value! Moreover, with the add-ons listed above, you can also utilize your tubs to be functional throughout the year. With proper hot tub maintenance, you can make sure that your hot tub or jacuzzi can remain functional for many years.
