Jacuzzi® Celebrates 60 Years in the Hydrotherapy Industry

With a fascinating history of innovation, the Jacuzzi® Brand is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.  Since creating the revolutionary portable jetted pump in 1956, Jacuzzi® is the world’s most widely recognized hydrotherapy brand.  Throughout 2016, Jacuzzi® dealers, such as Imagine Backyard Living in Scottsdale, will commemorate the brand’s six decades of innovation and industry leadership with in-store promotions and other events.

The inventiveness and business savvy of the Jacuzzi family has manifested in several groundbreaking products since seven brothers emigrated to the U.S. from Italy in the early twentieth century.  They were initially active in the aviation and agricultural industries, developing the world’s first submersible pump as an irrigation method designed for California’s orange groves.

In the 1950s, Kenneth Jacuzzi, the child of the youngest brother, developed juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune condition that causes severe joint pain.  After noticing that visits to a jetted tub at the hospital alleviated Kenneth’s symptoms, the boy’s father, Candido, became determined to create an at-home solution.  Candido and his brothers designed a portable aerating pump, known as the J-300, that could be placed in standard home bathtubs.  As the J-300’s popularity surged among consumers, the path to establishing Jacuzzi as a household name began to take shape.

Today, the Jacuzzi® Brand holds over 250 patents and offers the therapeutic benefits of hydromassage to consumers around the world.  Anchored by a commitment to quality, innovative design and superior performance, the company maintains its reputation as the industry leader.  Consumers will find an expansive selection of Jacuzzi® products at Imagine Backyard Living, Arizona’s largest Jacuzzi® dealer and the number one single store dealer in the world.  Imagine Backyard Living’s 15,000-square foot showroom provides an immersive experience that allows visitors to see, feel and touch products displayed in a variety of fully equipped outdoor living spaces.

As part of its 60th anniversary festivities, Jacuzzi® will offer a full-line sale with rebates of up to $1,956 to match the year they invented hydrotherapy. When combine with Imagines special sale prices, the savings will be up to $4356. This exciting promotion will be available from June 24 through July 11, 2016.  Visit Imagine Backyard Living in Scottsdale to celebrate the Jacuzzi® legacy and take advantage of the brand’s highest rebates ever.
