Jacuzzi or Hot Tub – What’s the Difference?

What is the Difference Between a Hot Tub and Jacuzzi?

Jacuzzi is such a widely used term for whirlpool spas, that people mistakenly believe it to be the industry term for jetted pools and whirlpool hot tubs. So, nobody would blame you for searching for jacuzzi when you’re really looking for a hot tub.


Why Do People Make the Mistake of Calling a Hot Tub a Jacuzzi?


A brand often does such a good job at marketing that it becomes the go-to term for a product or industry. For example, people now often state “Google it” when they mean “search for it through a search engine” or they talk about a BOB machine when they refer to the bank’s automated cash withdrawal machine. Brand dilution is not uncommon and something to guard against. Jacuzzi is actually a trademark product from a company. It so happens to be a whirlpool-type tub and due to widespread use of the name, people to this day still mistakenly search for a hot tub, using the term.
