Hot Tubs – Pumps & Jets

Does the number of Jets in a Hot Tub Jacuzzi really matter or do you have to consider the inter action of the motors and pumps that have to be considered.

It is very amusing when you get some so called hot tub specialists (usually the ones with sun glasses on) talking about the number of jets in a Hot Tub with out even taken into account the strength of the pumps which are going to power those Jets..

So these many jets (not that many really) do not have enough power to actually make these Jets perform properly, So for performance in a Hot Tub it is just not a simple question of the number of Jets but it does come down to things like engineering and design and the combination of the Jets with the correct motors and water pumps to produce the better product.

More often than not these Hot Tubs with lower rated motors have to have a diverter valve fitted so that other parts of the spa can be turned off so as to get any decent power where one is actually sitting.

I know many UK dealers who sell spas like this which they describe as unbranded models as the manufacturer has deliberately produced a cut down model with lesser features. That’s fine as long as they are priced accordingly and the consumer understands that he is not buying the top of the range model nor indeed a middle range model but a bottom of the range model.

Quite often many vendors (with or with out sunglasses) keep stressing that their Hot Tubs have air when all they really mean is the venturi effect of air being mixed with the water Jets not in fact an independent air blower. Air is great for blue or varicose veins. The simple idea of air coming out of those pepper pot type jets in a Hot Tub is too provide air blower therapy which naturally increases the blood circulation to your skin and that produces a flow of nutrients and medical Doctors that I have spoken to in London have confirmed this train of thought. . Our skin is by far the largest component of our body which helps us to remove poisons and the like.

When our skin is invigorated, our overall health and feel good factor is naturally increased and improved and this goes a long way to help us to remove toxins from our body and this has a result on increasing our personal vitality as both our mind & body receive the natural rejuvenating treatment.

It is a very well known medical fact that the lower legs, between the knee and the ankles where the Tibia nd Fibia Bones are is the longest distance from our hearts. That is why if you break your leg below the knee the “lower third” is the area which is the hardest to heal often needing bone grafts to get the healing process on its way. I speak with personal experience having spent more than a little time with my leg in traction with a broken femur and the leg below the knee in a plaster cast with a broken Tibia & Fibia. This lack of circulation is also why the ankles can get those blue looking spidery blood veins, and then of course our legs often get varicose veins. Air Jets in a Hot Tub go a long way to helping to reduce them.
