Is a Jacuzzi Better Than a Whirlpool?

Save

There's nothing more relaxing than taking a dip in a Jacuzzi or whirlpool tub. While there are many similarities between the two, a Jacuzzi dispenses jets of air while a whirlpool specializes in jets of water. The effects are surprisingly different.

Rehabilitation

  • Whirlpools have the edge when it comes to rehabilitation because the water jets that shoot out are particularly powerful and provide a very effective massage for fatigued or sore muscles.

Maintenance

  • Whirlpools must be full of water before cleaning; simply add a packet of cleaning solution and drain. With the air jets of a Jacuzzi, once the water is removed, all that's required is running the jets for drying purposes.

Sensation

  • While both types of tubs offer relaxing massaging techniques, the forceful bubbles of a whirlpool work deeper into the skin, and a Jacuzzi provides a gentler, more subtle sensation.

Cost

  • The price for both styles of tubs are similar, averaging anywhere from $1,500 to $3,000.

Health

  • Both styles of tubs offer benefits of stress relief, improved sleep quality and lower blood pressure.
