Hot Tubs vs Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs

We know what you’re thinking...they’re just the same thing right?!... Nope, that is where you would be wrong!

Jacuzzi®, much like Hoover and more recently Dyson, are the brand that started their industry, then set the standard on quality...and have led the way on performance and innovation ever since.

Why are Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs the best?

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs are like no other. Meticulously engineered inside and out to offer the best experience for every single user (that includes you!) Ergonomically designed for extreme comfort and undoubtedly the most incredible hydromassage you will find in a hot tub!

Jacuzzi’s focus is actually very simple. Yes, we have our USP’s but we don’t believe in adding unnecessary ‘bells and whistles’ to anything we offer. In short, the more gadgets and gizmos there are the more chance there is for components failing, resulting in unnecessary expense later down the line.

We believe the areas that are absolutely essential to cover for anyone looking to invest in a Hot Tub are these...the water sanitisation system, the massage capability (pump-to-jet ratio which we will cover a little later on) and that all important warranty!

The difference between owning a Hot Tub that ‘looks nice and sparkly’ and a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub which will look incredible AND serve you and your health for the duration of the time you own it is found in those 3 little points above.

How does the filtration system in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub Work? 

There are two key points to cover is the quality and clarity of your water and the other is the amount of Hot Tub chemicals that you need to use to maintain your Hot Tub. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs ALL come with our ClearRay® technology...we don’t believe that great water quality should be something you should pay extra for like some other brands out there!

Our ClearRay® technology comes in the form of a bulb, installed within the cabinet of your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub and which needs replacing just once a year. This clever little bulb emits a UV light which helps neutralise up to 99% of waterborne pathogen from your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub water as it is filtered through the system. Simple!

This incredible little bulb also hugely reduces the amount of chemicals that are needed to sanitise your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub water. Cleaner water simply means less chemicals; one of the main reasons that customers all over the world choose Jacuzzi® over the competition time after time.


We are aware of lots of other cleverly named sanitisation systems out there which can easily lead consumers to believe that they won’t have to do any cleaning once they buy the Hot Tub, or that they can have an organic substance do the sanitisation of their water instead of using Bromine/Chlorine.

In reality, it all boils down to the same thing though...there is no such thing as a Hot Tub that will maintain itself without any human intervention and the water will always be sanitised using either Bromine (or Chlorine) no matter how these substances start their life!



Now to cover the good stuff...the MASSAGE! Let’s be honest, this is the main thing that each and every person out there is imagining when they start researching Hot Tubs vs. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs. So, why are we so different?? As we mentioned earlier, Jacuzzi® started the Hot Tub industry. Way back in 1956, the Jacuzzi® family birthed the idea of adding a hydrotherapy pump to water to ease the aches and pains of a family member’s arthritis. And the rest is history. Jacuzzi® were also the first to highly-engineer jets, allowing us to patent them. This went on to form our Jacuzzi® Power Pro Jets – the very same ones that deliver an unbeatable hydromassage to this day! We have 12 patented Power Pro Jets, spread across 4 specially designed therapy seats, exclusive to the Jacuzzi® brand and guaranteed enhance your quality of living.

A key factor to bear in mind when researching Hot Tubs vs Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs is the pump-to-jet ratio. Simply put, your chosen hot tub needs to have enough pumps to power all of the jets to the right level...too little or too much power will leave you in hot water (pardon the pun).

We all too often see hot tubs with 80+ jets in them....and we agree, they do look very snazzy. But do they really perform to the standard you want or need them to? Sadly, the answer in most cases is no.... lots of jets does not translate to a good massage!

Jacuzzi® hot tubs deliver the perfect mix of air and water (Aqualibrium) through their patented hydrotherapy jets...high volume, low pressure...and this is exactly what you need for an enjoyable, beneficial and sustainable Hot Tub experience. Anything less will just leave you slightly sore or feeling deflated.

Last but not least is that all-important warranty! We think it’s fair to say that when you are investing any amount of money in a luxury item such as a Hot Tub, you want the peace of mind in knowing that your investment is a solid one...and the security of knowing that should anything go wrong, you are covered.

For this reason we believe that Jacuzzi® always have and always will fall in first place when doing the Hot Tubs vs. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs comparison.

Our warranty is TRUE...from start to finish. No hidden charges, no sliding scales of cover or customer liability. Just simple, inclusive, comprehensive cover.
