What exactly is a jacuzzi?

Before we tell you what you should pay attention to when buying a jacuzzi, let us first clarify the name “jacuzzi”. Did you know that this is actually a brand name? The name has become a synonym for what we call a bubble bath, hot tub or outdoor spa. In this blog we stick to the name jacuzzi. Because this is simply the common term for most people. Just as happened at Luxaflex for the well-known type of window coverings.

What should you pay attention to when buying a jacuzzi?

Buying a jacuzzi is of course a wonderful moment. But it's not always easy. There is a huge selection. Just take a look at our webshop . But don't worry: we are always ready to help you find the right model. It is important to know what you want and what the options are within your budget. But there is more to consider when buying a jacuzzi. With this blog we want to inform you about this. There are many practical and technical aspects that you probably do not take into account. That is understandable, because that cannot be expected of a layman. As a specialist, it is our job to fully inform you so that you can make an informed choice.

Buying a jacuzzi: this is how you determine the right size

You may of course have decided that you want to buy an outdoor spa, but it is important to check in advance what is and is not possible. This is to avoid any disappointments. You must have a suitable place to place a jacuzzi in your garden. Whether a location is suitable depends mainly on the power supply and the subsurface. A jacuzzi can only be placed on a hard, even surface. Most people choose a cozy, cozy place. On the terrace, veranda or under a canopy, for example. On the grass is not wise. In addition, make sure that you choose a place where the outdoor spa can be connected to power.

We recommend choosing a place where there is at least 60 centimeters of space around the jacuzzi. Space is useful for getting in and out, but also for carrying out maintenance on your jacuzzi. It is not a problem to place the hot tub against one or more closed walls, but access to the pumps and other parts must be freely accessible. You also often have to deal with a cover lifter that also needs space. So make sure you know what space you have available. This may somewhat limit your choice from the various formats.

The easiest way to select suitable models is to determine how many people you want to use the jacuzzi with. Are you alone? Would you like to enjoy it with your partner, or perhaps with the whole family? Outdoor spas are available in 1-person, 2-person or multi-person versions.

Always try out the jacuzzi in the showroom first

Buying a jacuzzi requires a significant investment. When you buy a hot tub, you naturally want to enjoy it for many years to come. That is why it is important to purchase a jacuzzi that suits your wishes and requirements in all respects. Finesse Wellness offers you the opportunity to buy a jacuzzi online. However, we advise you to always come to the showroom first to "try out the jacuzzi dry". You want to be sure that the jacuzzi you have in mind is comfortable. You buy an outdoor spa to enjoy it, to relax. Then it must meet your wishes 100% in all respects.

What you should take into account in terms of material and finish

There is more to jacuzzis than meets the eye. Obviously you want to buy a jacuzzi that looks nice. But looks aren't everything. That is why it is so important that you buy your jacuzzi from a specialist. A real specialist will always point out important matters to you. It is precisely the things that you do not immediately think about that are extremely important for your experience.

First of all, when buying a jacuzzi, it is important that you are well informed about the different materials of the frame. The frame of a Jacuzzi is made of wood, plastic or stainless steel. What is the right choice for you depends on your wishes and budget. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages. Stainless steel is the strongest but weighs a bit more than, for example, wood or plastic. Wood can be a cheap solution and an excellent choice for cheaper baths, all value for money.

What about the insulation and protection?

Using a jacuzzi costs money. The water in the hot tub must be heated and pumps are needed for operation and massage jets. The degree of insulation largely determines the energy efficiency of the jacuzzi. You can buy an affordable jacuzzi, but if it has little insulation, it will probably consume a lot of energy and incur relatively high operating costs. Therefore, look at the insulation on the side panels, the bottom and the bottom of the tub. Read more about energy costs in our other blog .

Your jacuzzi is outside. Of course, you take good care of your outdoor spa and close it with the cover. But what about the bottom? It is warm and humid in and around a jacuzzi. These are the favorite conditions of all kinds of pests. Be informed about the soil. For example, you can buy a jacuzzi with a so-called ABS bottom. This not only has an insulating effect, but also provides good protection against pests.

The technical aspects involved when buying a jacuzzi

Many jacuzzis basically do the same thing. But how well they do this, and the way they do it, can vary greatly. Buying a jacuzzi is in a way the same as buying a car: never buy without looking under the hood. Now we cannot expect that as a "layman" you will understand exactly what you find inside a jacuzzi. That is why we have listed the most important technical aspects when buying a spa for you.

The control of the jacuzzi is crucial for the pleasure you experience. This just has to be okay. That is why we at Finesse Wellness prefer to work with systems from Gecko or Balboa. These are both market leaders that offer the quality you would expect when you invest in a luxury product such as an outdoor spa.

Many people automatically think of a jacuzzi (or hot tub or spa) as a hot tub. That is not true. Many outdoor spas do not have a bubble function as standard. The bubble function is often confused with the massage function. Bubbles are created by blowing air. This requires an additional pump. You should therefore often purchase this air blower as an option if you want your jacuzzi to also be a hot tub.

The massage jets from your outdoor spa provide a pleasant feeling. A built-in pump is responsible for this. If you buy an affordable hot tub from a lower segment, you often get a pump with a relatively low power (1.4 HP). Moreover, this is often a two-speed pump; a type of pump that is not very efficient and economical. If you invest a little more, it is possible to buy a jacuzzi with a circulation pump. A circulation pump is more economical and quieter. This provides more comfort. The circulation pump runs approximately 12 hours a day and ensures filtration of the water. This is more energy efficient than a two-speed pump that provides both massage and circulation. For a really powerful massage jet, we recommend a pump with a power of at least 3 HP, or several pumps such as 2x 2.5 HP or even more.
