  • 1. How does a whirlpool bath work?

    A whirlpool bath works by recirculating the water already in the bath. The whirlpool pump once activated draws water into the chamber compresses it and forces it back through the jets with an infusion of air to create the massaging effect. It literally is a cyclical process drawing energy from one water cycle to the next to generate an authentic whirlpool feel.

  • 5. Why were whirlpool baths invented?

    The modern whirlpool bath, or Jacuzzi was invented back in the 1950s by Mr Jacuzzi. The catalyst was that his son began to suffer from arthritis and he created the whirlpool bath to help with this and in doing so became a pioneer of hydrotherapy. The results had a significant impact that wasnt just therapeutic, but also very relaxing, healing and soothing. These qualities quickly cemented the reputation as a aspirational product for the wealthy and privileged.

  • 6. Is there a difference between a Jacuzzi bath and a whirlpool bath?

    There is no real difference between the two - theyre essentially the same product that speaks to the same desire to attain and indulge in a superior bathing experience. Jacuzzi is in effect a brand name for whirlpool baths, similar to Hoover vacuums or Tannoy public address systems, this is a timeless, shining example of excellent brand/product crossover.

    If youre looking for a Jacuzzi / whirlpool bath or hot tub, theres really no reason to go specifically for the Jacuzzi brand, beyond ostentation and novelty. In fact, shopping on our website is much more cost-effective and practical. We believe our systems to be at least equally competent and more proficient in a like for like comparison. Our systems are produced to rigorous standards that exceed even those of the modern baths that Jacuzzi are producing. Jacuzzi maybe the name you have heard of but it doesnt mean they are the best.
