At the end of a long day, few things are better than soaking in a bubbly hot tub. Not only are they relaxing, there are also many health benefits that result from using one. While they used to be expensive and out of reach for the average consumer, they are now readily available and affordable to just about anyone.
If you are looking for a great jacuzzi for sale, there are many places you can look. Most major market and big box stores sell a large assortment of jacuzzi's and supplies. If you are looking for something more luxurious or want to buy from people with a great knowledge about jacuzzi's, first start looking at hardware and appliance stores. There are even stores that specifically carry only bathroom and outdoor water appliances. For the ultimate customer service, sometimes consumers prefer to buy directly through the manufacturer. In some cases, manufacturers do not do direct sales, but they will provide a list of qualified distributors of their product. If you are working on a budget and cannot find a good deal at the stores or from the distributor, there is always the option of buying used. With the development of Craigslist and other sale websites, it is fairly easy for the consumer to get a good deal or find something second-hand. For those leery of shopping online, but still looking to find a good deal, pay attention to when stores will be having sales. Ask the store manager if they are willing to work out a deal in order to make a sale. With enough effort, a very nice tub can be found at an affordable price.
Often times, you will hear a hot tub referred to as a jacuzzi. While the two descriptions are practically interchangeable, the difference is that Jacuzzi is a brand name. The Jacuzzi brothers immigrated to the United States from Italy. They had been doing considerable work with aviation and hydraulics. They were great inventors and eventually went on to invent a hydrotherapy pump. This pump was sold to hospitals and schools as a form of therapy, and eventually was sold directly to the consumer. One of the brothers, Roy Jacuzzi, invented the hot tub in 1968. He called it a Roman tub and it was famous for using hydrotheraputic pumps in a stand alone unit. As the Jacuzzi brand became more famous, people started referring to a hot tub as a jacuzzi. While technically Jacuzzi is a proper and brand name, when people use the word jacuzzi, they are referring to a standard hot tub. Finding the best hot tubs for sale doesn't have to be difficult.
Jacuzzi's range in price, depending on what you are looking for. Quality tubs start at about $1,500, but depending on the added amenities, prices can climb as high as $5,000 or $6,000.
