Difference Between Hot Tub and Jacuzzi

Hot Tub vs Jacuzzi

Bathing is an important sanitary act for any individual and for maintaining good, personal hygiene. The act of bathing is also used in rituals in different religions, therapy for certain health problems, and recreational activities. The act can take place almost anywhere as long as the area has water available. It can take place in rivers, lakes, pools, seas, and other bodies of water. Usually, however, it takes place in a shower or a bathtub.

A bath or bathtub, in American English, is a container used for holding water so an individual can bathe. Bathtubs are usually placed in a bathroom and are sometimes used in conjunction with the shower. Today’s bathtubs have drains and have taps built on them. The usual shape for a bathtub is rectangular, but with the introduction of thermoforming acrylic materials, more shapes were made available for the buyers. Other bathtubs are also built from other materials, such as wood, enamel, cast iron, steel, and fiberglass. The most popularly used material is porcelain, which is considered the strongest of those materials and has a long life span. There are two main styles for a bathtub, western-style and eastern-style, both have distinct features. In a western-style, the bathtub is shallower and longer, allowing the occupant to lie down. In an eastern-style bathtub, also called an ofuro in Japanese, the design is short but deeper. This is because the design is intended for making the bather stand up.

Several types of bathtubs also exist. Among these types is the hot tub. A hot tub is a large tub or a small pool designed to carry a certain amount of water which is then heated. This type of tub serves multiple purposes, like soaking, relaxation, hydrotherapy, and massage. Hot tubs are usually heated with the use of electric or natural gas heaters. There are also other ways to heat it, like using submersible wood-fired heaters, and through the use of a solar hot water system which has solar collectors to deliver the heat to the water. There are also different styles for hot tubs, like wood staved tubs and one-piece, plastic tubs. The wooden tubs are built from wooden staves and banded together with steel bands. What is commonly inside these tubs are wooden benches for seating. The bench forms a ring inside the tub.

In a one-piece tub, water flow is controlled with the use of jets and aerated. This flow produces a relaxing, massaging effect. Currently, this style of hot tub dominates the market because it costs less to manufacture, is energy efficient, and is easier to install. This type is also mistakenly referred to as a Jacuzzi. Jacuzzi is a brand name of tubs that is made by the Jacuzzi Company. The company is famous for producing whirlpool bathtubs and improving the size, heating, and filtration systems.
