There's nothing like a long soak in the tub to ease the day's tension and wash your troubles away. Jacuzzi is the undisputed leader in the luxury tub market. Jacuzzi built its reputation of providing remarkable tubs that take luxury to a whole new level.
With a number of different tub types, installation types, and remarkably relaxing technologies, there's surely something for everyone in a Jacuzzi tub. And Build.com proudly carries Jacuzzi tubs.
Jacuzzi's famed history dates back to the middle of the 20th century. In 1956, the Jacuzzi family developed a portable hydrotherapy pump to help treat a family member's arthritis. The hospital community quickly caught wind of its success, and embraced the pump (the J-300) and its benefits and began effectively treating patients' joint pain.
In 1968, Jacuzzi incorporated the hydrotherapy pump into the sides of its bathtubs. This was the first self-contained whirlpool and a new industry suddenly was born. In 1970, when Jacuzzi added heating and filtration systems to keep its tubs clean and warm, the first outdoor spa was created.
Today, Jacuzzi has expanded its luxury tub options to include four therapeutic types of tubs. A soaking tub is the most basic and most common type, and is Jacuzzi's foundation for hydrotherapy. Jacuzzi's Pure Air tubs can range from a bubbly champagne-like experience to a steady stream of bubbles, depending on the setting the user chooses.
Jacuzzi whirlpool tubs feature strategically placed jets that target the major muscle groups for a full massage. And Salon Spa is Jacuzzi's most luxurious type of tub. This is the ultimate in hydrotherapy, combining Pure Air and Whirlpool technologies to provide over a dozen unique experiences that can be tailored to your mood or the individual.
Jacuzzi also features a wide range of installation types. Drop in tubs are the most common installation type for luxury tubs and include the largest variety of available sizes and shapes. These tubs are dropped right into a framed enclosure.
The Jacuzzi undermount tub is similar to a drop in tub, in that it's also set into a tub enclosure. But the finishing materials are constructed to cover the tub lip, which creates a distinctly professional and modern appearance.
The Jacuzzi alcove tub (or skirted tub) is also an extremely popular installation type. This type is installed into a three-wall tiled niche, with the fourth side being either a shower curtain or a glass door.
Jacuzzi corner tubs help maintain an open bathroom floor plan. They bridge the gap between the common tub and the indoor or outdoor hot tub, and they typically have enough room for two people.
A freestanding tub is the first type of tub ever created by man. And in spite of all of the technological advances over the years to other tubs, this still remains extremely popular. Choose from the classic clawfoot design to the more modern European designs.
Jacuzzi walk in tubs are designed for easy access and safe, comfortable bathing. And they're gaining in popularity, particularly as Baby Boomers opt to remodel their bathrooms and remain in their homes longer.
In addition to its different types of therapy tubs and installation types, Jacuzzi also features a number of cutting-edge technologies to help augment the Jacuzzi tub experience. AccuPro and TheraPro jets are used in Jacuzzi's Whirlpool and Salon Spa tubs.
AccuPro jets are a building block of the jetted Whirpool tub and send a precise, pinpointed flow of air and water to target specific areas of your body. And TheraPro jets deliver power with higher flow and air integration for a targeted and more vigorous massage without being too strong or uneven. TheraPro jets are fully adjustable and customizable to suit your specific needs and direct the whirlpool action to the desired target area.
Another pair of remarkable technologies are Jacuzzi's Chromatherapy and Illumatherapy lighting. For Chromatherapy, two lenses of LED lights are installed below the water line. They include a white light for safe tub entry and exit, and provide plenty of color options to set the mood. Chromatherapy lights can be fixed to a single color or set to rotate slowly through the spectrum.
Illumatherapy completely immerses the bather in light. Like Chromatherapy, Jacuzzi's Illumatherapy technology features LED lights in the bathing well, but with four points of entry, two on each side of the tub. Air bubbles from the jet appear to dance as they reflect the light.
Finally, Jacuzzi's amazing Whisper technology can help make your luxury tub experience truly remarkable. Whisper technology is a patented pump mount system that cuts the vibrations and sounds the tub's heating and pump systems will make in half.
You can also shop Jacuzzi luxury tubs by popular collections. The Jacuzzi Espree collection was specially designed with the perfect fit in mind. Curves that naturally match those of your body feature massaging jets in all the right places. And, of course, Jacuzzi's Espree collection has a number of different options. Choose from fixtures to accommodate one or two bathers, extra-deep and wide bathtubs for the ultimate comfort, as well as a cozy corner bath option.
Jacuzzi's Bellavista collection redefines the very meaning of the word luxury. Available in triangular and rectangular shapes, this tub features a contoured backrest, dual armrests, slip-resistant bottom, and an easy-to-clean, high-gloss acrylic. Unique sculpting and exterior edges highlight the Bellavista's traditional design and unparalleled comfort. Jacuzzi's Bellavista is available in all four different luxury tub experiences: Soaking Bath, Pure Air, Whirlpool, and Salon Spa.
Jacuzzi's Fuzion collection is also incredibly popular. Can a luxury tub double as a unique home furnishing? With the Fuzion luxury bath, it certainly can. This is unlike any other luxury tub you've seen and is available in drop-in and undermount installation types. And when you speak of comfort, the Fuzion includes ergonomically designed pillows. Jacuzzi's Fuzion luxury tub is available as a whirlpool bath or Salon Spa for one or two bathers.
