Relax in a Jacuzzi whirlpool bath

While the trademarked Jacuzzi name has become a generic synonym for any bath or spa product with massaging water jets, the company was the first to bring hydrotherapy to the average American home. Launched by the Jacuzzi brothers in the 1950s, following decades of research and innovation, the company's line of hydrotherapy pumps eventually morphed into its now-famous collection of bathtubs and whirlpools.

A Brief History of Jacuzzi Whirlpools

After emigrating from Italy to California around the turn of the century, the first-generation Jacuzzi brothers made a name for themselves in the field of aviation. By the 1950s, the family had shifted its focus, applying the lessons they learned from decades in the airplane mechanics business to a line of hydrotherapy pumps designed to treat arthritis symptoms.

While the hydrotherapy venture was initially a niche business, the company was producing full-sized, integrated whirlpool bathtubs by the late 1960s. The company continued to innovate and expand its lineup, and the first outdoor Jacuzzis were available by the early 1980s, when the Avanza whirlpool tub was launched.

Through the 1990s and to the present day, Jacuzzi hot tubs are universally recognized for quality, attention to detail and groundbreaking technologies. The company has continued to hold a prominent place in the hydrotherapy and home whirlpool bathtub industry.

Today's Jacuzzi Products

Today, the company offers a wide range of bath products in addition to its line of Jacuzzi whirlpools. On their website, Jacuzzi categorizes their current product selection into baths, showers, home spa products, toilets and sinks, and accessories.

Jacuzzi hot tubs are available in all price ranges, and even introductory models come complete with a comprehensive range of technologically advanced features. The company's line of shower products has also proven to be a big hit with consumers; it applies Jacuzzi's famous hydrotherapy technologies to pulsating jets mounted on the shower wall to create a full-body experience like no other.

Consumers can also shop for Jacuzzi whirlpools by shape; rectangular, ovular, round and corner units are all available. Premium products feature more than 10 jets and offer comfortable seating for eight adults or more.
