Jacuzzi® vs Hot Tub – What is the difference!

If you’re in the market for a new spa or hot tub, you’ve likely encountered a labyrinth of terms like “hot tub,” “spa,” and “Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs.” Don’t worry; Outback 365 is here to explain and clear up the differences, explain why not all hot tubs are Jacuzzi® hot tubs, and give you a heads-up about some misleading sellers.

Getting to Know the Brand

Jacuzzi® is a household name often mistakenly used interchangeably with “hot tub. It’s a bit like calling vacuum cleaners “Hoovers” or plastic containers “Tupperware.” Sound familiar? Many of us do this without realising that behind these names stands a brand that specialises in a specific product. Jacuzzi® is a brand name that has become synonymous with its product, the hot tub.

Anything else is just a hot tub.

Hot Tubs vs. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs: What’s the Difference?

A hot tub typically refers to a compact to medium-sized structure designed to hold heated water. These are commonly equipped with seating, jets, and filtration systems to create an enjoyable and relaxing water experience. Hot tubs are known for their ability to produce bubbling, massaging sensations, offering a fun and therapeutic water experience.

When it comes to hot tubs and Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, the difference lies not only in their brand names but also in their construction and features. On the other hand, Jacuzzi® is a distinguished brand that specialises in crafting hot tubs, swim spas, baths, and saunas.

What Sets Jacuzzi® Apart?

The Jacuzzi® name originates from the Jacuzzi brothers, who introduced the J-300 pump for bathing. This pioneering invention eventually evolved into what we now recognise as a hot tub. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs are celebrated for their exceptional features, including top-notch hydromassage jets inspired by the original J-300 pump, advanced water filtration systems, comfortable seating arrangements, stylish designs, and contemporary innovations like the SmartTub® technology.

In essence, while hot tubs provide a relaxing soak experience, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs stand out as a premium brand, offering an elevated level of hydrotherapy, comfort, and innovation for those seeking the ultimate in relaxation and wellness.


Why Are Hot Tubs Often Called Spas?

The use of “spa” to refer to hot tubs has regional and historical roots. In some countries, like Australia and New Zealand, “spa” or “spa pool” is the common term for what others call a “hot tub.” Historical connections between “spa” and natural mineral springs and therapeutic baths have influenced this linguistic shift. Some hot tub manufacturers have embraced the term “spa” in their branding, contributing to its widespread use.

Understand the Difference

As pioneers of the hot tub industry, Jacuzzi® is more than just a term for a hot tub; it’s a respected brand known for manufacturing its own line of high-quality hot tubs, swim spas, baths, and saunas.

A Word of Caution

We want to inform you about the potential for some amateur hot tub sellers who inaccurately label their products as “Jacuzzis.” This deceptive use of the ‘Jacuzzi’ name can lead to consumer confusion. Sellers who falsely market their products as ‘Jacuzzis’ without a genuine affiliation with the Jacuzzi® brand may find themselves in violation of crucial trademark laws. If you’ve purchased a falsely advertised Jacuzzi, you may want to discuss this with the seller again. To read more on the Jacuzzi Trade mark https://www.jacuzzi.com/en-gb/trademark/legal.html
