The company, founded in 1917, was named after the family name - Yakutstsi ( Jacuzzi), but, thanks to the American pronunciation, transformed into a Jacuzzi. directions of work of the company were the creation of aircraft

, and the production of agricultural pumps.Only after more than fifty years since the Yakutstsi family arriving in America one of the brothers - Candido - created a jacuzzi.So in 1956 it was born the first hot tub, and it was established and mass production in the near future.

Son younger brother was ill with rheumatoid arthritis and in need of regular massage treatments.Then Candido Yakutstsi decided to equip a bath aeration pump, which would allow to massage the body with a mixture of water jets and air.Subsequently, jacuzzi undergone repeated revision and improvement.Family Yakutstsi issued approximately 250 patents related to the whirlpool. Thanks to their ingenuity, the world was one of the best types of baths, which combined are equally pleasant and useful.

Pump and compressor

"Heart" hot tub can safely be called a pump and a compressor.Without them simply impossible to implement the whirlpool.

In small models whirlpool pump only is often installed.It pumps water into the nozzle system.Due to the air controllers and differential pressure water flow captures air from the atmosphere (ejection principle).The pressure water jets increases.It should be noted that such bath may have a lower cost than models equipped with a compressor, however, the number of adjustments to the flow are restricted. Jacuzzi, equipped only pump more suitable for relaxation and is unlikely to be able to provide effective help in the treatment of serious diseases .

Pump Jacuzzi

best massage result achieves the compressor discharge air is forced into the nozzle.This increases the air-pressure water flow that may extend up to 70 cm, without losing strength massage.

Types nozzles

By type of feed stream nozzles for the jacuzzi are divided into 3 types:

  1. Whirlpool .Through the small openings is supplied with water.
  2. Aeromassazhnye .The principle is the same, only the compressor pumps air which, breaking through the nozzle holes, enters the bath in a stream of fine bubbles
  3. Combined .When the nozzle is supplied through one and the water flow and the air.

From design nozzles depends what kind of will directed the flow of water, with which the pressure he will be fed and at what angle.Each manufacturer has a bath-tub to several tens of different designs of nozzles.For example, in addition to standard nozzles connected to the pipes and the pump system, there are models that produce their own water intake directly from the bath and then throw it in the form of a dynamic flow.

Depending on the area, which will be given to the impact of hydromassage, jets of different sizes. to the back and hips set larger nozzle areas in the neck and a stop arrangement mounted nozzle smaller.

simplest nozzles allow direct flow output.There are also modern models that run swivel and allow you to change the direction of air and water jets.Some companies have developed nozzles that create a vortex mixture of water and air, which improves the characteristics of massage Jacuzzi.

location and size of the nozzles in the Jacuzzi

nozzles Jacuzzi may be made of plastic or metal .The choice of material depends more on your preferences than on the strength characteristics.But plastic injector still has a number of advantages:

  • They do not corrode.If, however, you choose the nozzles of metal, they shall be brass
  • Plastic does not conduct electric current.This quality is especially important for bathtubs made of acrylic, which use plastic nozzles eliminates accidental electric shock due to violations in the operation of the pump or compressor.

For those whose aesthetic taste can not tolerate the type of plastic, may be suitable to use plastic nozzles with metallic color.

Aero and hydro

hydromassage in the jacuzzi is carried out according to the following principle:

  • The pump draws water from the bath
  • through conduitpressurized water is supplied to the injector
  • pressure water stream is forced air via compressor (possible entrainment of air through the regulator)
  • Directed water and air flow under pressure exits through nozzles acting on the body.

Nozzles for whirlpool in various models of whirlpool baths are mounted to the wall or in the floor.

Aeromassazhnye nozzles differ miniaturization.Through them in a bath is pumped by the compressor airflow.Air massage in the jacuzzi - it is rather a supplement for relaxation than for the treatment of diseases.Combining aerial and hydromassage in the jacuzzi can be programmed more than 10 massage modes.
