Jacuzzi Is A Proper Name And A Brand.

You should know that this word is a proper name, that of its Italian inventor, Roy Jacuzzi and that it is still a trademark that has existed since 1956. When we use the word Jacuzzi, we mean a whirlpool or whirlpool.

The History Of Jacuzzi

It is the story of seven brothers who left their native northern Italy to conquer America. Arrived in California in the United States, they started aviation to apply their knowledge in hydraulics and fluid dynamics. Excellent mechanics, they carved out a solid reputation for inventors by creating an original design propeller, hydraulic pumps for aviation. They even designed the very first closed cabin monoplane for the US Postal.

But following the plane crash which killed one of their brothers, they abandoned aviation to put their inventive talent at the agriculture service by creating, in particular, a new pumping system. The story would have ended there, of very talented immigrant inventors who became industrialists in agriculture if one of the Jacuzzi brothers, Candido, had not had a son who has rheumatoid arthritis, regularly leading him to the hospital. Hospital to receive balneotherapy treatments.

Roy Jacuzzi, the other brother, soon found a way to miniaturize his agricultural pump into a portable system suitable for all bathtubs. The ancestor of Jacuzzi whirlpools was born.

The Brief History Of The Baths

The history of baths with hot tub accessories is as old as the world. In Indian antiquity, we already find traces of tubs with piping. Among the Greeks, great lovers of personal hygiene, Hippocrates already recommended baths. As for the Romans, they were the specialists in the genre.

Surprisingly, and contrary to what one hears, the French Middle Ages were clean, very clean even, with numerous public baths and very busy. The Church did not recommend its use for moral reasons, bathing and nudity being the prelude to lust and stupor. During the Renaissance, the use of public baths was lost, some scholars having decreed that water was responsible for the transmission of leprosy, syphilis, and some other diseases.

Our kings and other lords then had to rub in eau de toilette and other perfumes to compensate for this lack of baths. It was not until the 18th century and especially the 19th century that the “hygienists” urged people to return to the baths.
