The hot tubs and the jacuzzi are two popular hot-water bathing systems that many people enjoy in their backyards. The hot tub is designed to accommodate more than one person, while the jacuzzi is designed for a single person. Another difference between hot tubs and jacuzzis is that hot tubs often have jets installed at different points in the water's surface, which provide an added sensory experience. Jacuzzis do not usually have these jets.
Both hot tubs and jacuzzis are often installed in backyard decks or patios. Many homeowners enjoy these hot-water bathing systems year round, even during winter months when the weather is cold. However, hot tubs tend to retain heat more easily than jacuzzis do because of their rounded shapes. Hot tubs also have insulation that helps maintain the water's temperature for a longer period of time.
The hot tub can be made from wood or fiberglass material while some people choose other materials such as concrete, steel, stone or tile for their hot tubs' construction. Jacuzzi whirlpool baths typically use acrylic surfaces instead of tiles since they are easier to clean keep sanitary over time compared to the rest.
Hot tubs that are made of stone are very expensive, so hot tubs made of fiberglass or wood are more popular choices. Fiberglass hot tubs tend to be the least expensive choice for homeowners that want a hot-water bathing system in their backyard.
The main difference between hot tubs and jacuzzis is that hot tubs can fit multiple people while jacuzzis are designed with single person use in mind. This means you cannot install jets on a jacuzzi because there would be no way to control how much water pressure they produce when several people soak at once in this type of bathtub design.
