Jacuzzi Walk-In Tubs Review
An international company producing some of the highest quality walk-in tubs on the market. The walk-in tubs provided by Jacuzzi are manufactured in the USA, in Valdosta, Georgia.
Beginning as a family-orientated company that originated from Europe and later emigrated to the USA in the early 1900’s, Jacuzzi has led the way by being a pioneer in the field of walk-in tubs since 1956. A fabulous illustration of just how pioneering the family have been, is that in the early 1990’s, Roy Jacuzzi was inducted in to the National Kitchen & Bath Hall of Fame. This highly decorated award was for contributions to innovation and hydrotherapy in the area of home use products.
Just one example of the innovation that can be found at Jacuzzi is that they were the inventor of whirlpool jets for luxury bathing.
With Jacuzzi you can receive a free in-home consultation upon filling out one of their forms on their website. Although it can be a little daunting and perhaps leave you feeling a little over committed in to purchasing a walk-in tub from a particular provider (in this case Jacuzzi), there is a strong benefit that you can take advantage of when using the in-home consultation. This benefit is that on entering your home, they can take accurate measurements for you as to ensure you receive the correct walk-in tub for your situation. This of course is on top of taking advantage of other benefits such as asking all the questions you may have at that stage.
Epsom salt compatibility
The magnesium that can be found in Epsom salt baths have been proven to help with numerous problems that users of walk-in tubs traditionally suffer from such as, arthritis pain, fibromyalgia, sleeping difficulties and sore muscles.
Jacuzzi have taken it upon themselves to display just how they are the market leader’s for walk-in tubs as their walk-in tubs are the only ones which are Epsom salt compatible.
The Jacuzzi ClearRay is an innovative water management system designed to help streamline the process of cleaning and maintenance of their walk-in tubs.
One of many innovations that Jacuzzi have produced. SmartTub is a mobile app which can be used to help monitor and control your walk-in tub.

Cons of buying from Jacuzzi
Although there are many positive reasons for buying a walk-in tub from Jacuzzi, purchasing from Jacuzzi is not for everyone as the list of reasons below will describe:
- Lack of walk-in tub options available.
- Website not as informative as it could be.
- Prices extremely difficult to obtain.
- Various levels of warranty according to the product or service.
- Only 90 days warranty for accessories.
Jacuzzi are looking to provide a rounded complete experience for their customers and this means they provide more than just the walk-in tub themselves. In addition, once you have secured your walk-in tub, Jacuzzi will ensure you receive a professional installation from an expertly trained technician who will remove your now redundant bathtub or shower and replace it with your new walk-in tub. This will all be completed in a one day set up.
Walk-in tubs provided by Jacuzzi are not covered by Medicare.
This is something you should always consider generally when purchasing a walk-in tub, but it is absolutely essential if you do decide to purchase a walk-in tub from Jacuzzi. The reason for this is that the warranty is convoluted as it is varied according to the product or service that it is referring to. In short, warranty for the walk-in tubs themselves is limited lifetime warranty, whereas for accessories the warranty is just 90 days. There is also warranty for the labor itself, with that being covered for a variable time period of one to two years depending on the option and model the labor will be referring to.
