A plug and play Jacuzzi has several benefits over a standard model.
1. This does not require a new electrical circuit. This can actually be a colossal cost saver for many homeowners. While most homes were originally built with circuit boards and main breakers that could handle a few more connections, these extra slots have often already been taken up by new electrical wiring. A surprising number of homes cannot support an additional electrical circuit for a standard spa Jacuzzi (ג׳קוזי לחצר) without replacing the main breaker and circuit board. This can cost hundreds of dollars. However, with a plug and play Jacuzzi, you can use your existing electrical circuits.
2. It does not require buried cable. Most municipal and county electrical conduits will demand that any full electrical circuits be buried at least 18″ deep. To install most standard Jacuzzi, you will need to install a new electrical conduit by drilling a large hole in the side of your house, installing a breaker box, and digging a trench. With a plug and play, all you need to do is plug it in and tell guests to mind the cord.
3. This is mobile. Most standard spa Jacuzzi (בריכות ספא) are still called “portable” Jacuzzi, because, unlike wooden or in-ground Jacuzzi, their plumbing is all self-contained. However, they are certainly not “portable” in any usual sense of the word! Because standard ones are hardwired to underground electrical circuits, moving them even a foot from side to side means calling an electrician and a municipal or county electrical inspector. It means more digging, more wiring, and more money. However, by contrast, a plug and play spa Jacuzzi is extremely easy to move around. This can be a huge advantage for homeowners who are planning to redo their backyard or deck in the near future.
