Soaking in a tub full of hot water is not only relaxing, but may provide a number of health benefits. If you have been thinking about purchasing a hot tub, you might be confused about the various terminology used. Jacuzzi, hot tub, spa, what is the difference between all of these things? Are they interchangeable, or are there some differences?


Lets start by looking at the word Jacuzzi. Jacuzzi is actually a brand name of quality hot tubs and spas. Jacuzzi is a worldwide brand with their headquarters in California. This company was founded in 1915 and has become THE go-to for those people who are looking for a high-quality, and long-lasting hot tub or spa. Jacuzzi is often thrown around to mean any hot tub or spa because of the popularity and following that they have earned over decades.

Hot Tub Versus Spa

So now that we know Jacuzzi actually refers to a specific brand of hot tub or spa, what is the difference between these terms? Hot tubs are exactly what the name suggests, and are just a large tub. These are traditionally made from wood, but may also be fibreglass construction. Hot tubs are not very common these days. as most people prefer to go with a spa.

A spa is essentially a fancy hot tub that includes jets. A jet takes water and combines it with air as it shoots it through a jet tube. These provide a massaging effect, helping the user to further relax. Modern spas in Surrey tend to contain many jets and be manufactured from high quality, durable fibreglass.

Now that you know the basics of these terms you are ready to start shopping around for your hot tubs and Jacuzzis in Surrey. Art Knapp Outdoor living has a number of options available, so be sure to check them out.
