Over the years, the word ‘Jacuzzi’ has become synonymous with luxury spas and swim spas. But these seven letters represent much more than just a product category, for Jacuzzi® is both the family name of the inventors who created the very first spa, and the world-leading brand they built from the ground up.

One Family’s Legacy of Innovation

The Jacuzzi family emigrated to the United States in the early 1900s and quickly earned a reputation as highly-skilled engineers. The seven Jacuzzi brothers were the first to build an enclosed-cabin monoplane, and were responsible for creating a submersible pump which changed the face of agriculture.

But it was the 1950s when things really started to happen. After a young family member was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, the brothers developed an aeration pump which could be submerged in water, and hydrotherapy was born!

Third-generation family member Roy Jacuzzi took the business to the next level in the 1960s, creating the patented jets that would make Jacuzzi® a household name.

To this day, the business remains at the forefront of innovation, constantly searching for new ways to make people’s lives better through hydrotherapy. Jacuzzi® now has more than 250 global patents, and is the world’s largest manufacturer of acrylic spas.
