In the late 1960s, Roy Jacuzzi, a third-generation Jacuzzi (ג’קוזי) toyed with the idea of marketing the pump-fitted bath tub dubbed the ‘Roman Bathtub’ to cater for the growing need for leisure.
Although the larger Jacuzzi family thought this idea was a little weird, the sales grew and soon the bathtub was designed to be a bit larger so as to fit in 2 people. The designed improved farther over several years and they became larger and larger.
In 1979, they sold the company to Kidde Inc. which was later bought by Hanson PLC in 1987.In 1996, the company strengthened itself further by purchasing a leading Canadian swimming pool manufacturer, Haugh’s Products Limited and diversified and improved the designs further.
A standard Jacuzzi (ג’קוזי) comes in dimensions of 1.8m by 1.8m by 0.8m height.
The bathroom area should therefore be large enough to fit in this size and leave enough room for circulation and dressing inside the bathroom.
For a room that has a lot of privacy such as an upstairs room, the window can be designed to be large to bring in a lot of light and give a panoramic view of the outside. Since a whirl pool is a place where people spend a considerable amount of time inside, it should have good wide panoramic views so as to avoid monotony and boredom.
The floor area is screened and raised 100mm form the floor level with a bed of cement-sand mortar. It is placed on top and screwed to the ground. The connecting plumbing pipes are fixed to the house’s water pipes and the pump is connected to the electricity point. The ceramic wall tiles can be designed to a pattern and colour of your choice.
