What are the Cost of a Home Jacuzzi?
What are the Different Types of Home Jacuzzis?
There are two main types of home Jacuzzi: the portable and the fixed. The portable Jacuzzi is one that you can take apart and put together again.
This can be great for people who want to move their Jacuzzi from room to room, or even take it on vacation with them.
The fixed Jacuzzi is one that stays in place. People don’t design them to be moved from room to room. There are also several different heating systems, jet configurations, and sizes available for each type of home Jacuzzi.
How Much Do They Cost?
For the most part, home Jacuzzis cost between $2000 and $5000 new. Of course, it is possible to find used models for as little as $1000 or even less if you look hard enough.
On average, though, you can purchase a new Jacuzzi for about the same amount as a new stand-up shower or a large sofa. The cost of a home Jacuzzi will vary greatly depending on the size of the tub as well as its features and accessories
What are the Variants of Jacuzzi (Classic, Air, Original, Smart)?
The original Jacuzzi (also known as the Classic) is the original design, and the one that started it all. It features a triangular shaped jet configuration, and fits into a standard size bathtub.
We can make the Classic Jacuzzi for either above ground or ground level installation.
Jacuzzi Classic Air Bath (JCA)
The JCA is a variation of the classic Jacuzzi that comes with air jets. These jets are completely silent, making them a great option for people with sensitive ears who want peace while relaxing in their tub.
The JCA can also fit into smaller bathtubs than the classic version, making it perfect for any household that doesn’t have a large bathtub to work with.
Jacuzzi Original Air Bath (OA)
The OA is another variation of the classic Jacuzzi that includes air jets. This model does not come with any water jets like its cousin, but has pumping and heating systems to keep you warm and relaxed during your soak in your new tub.
The OA also comes with an option to add water jets at a later date if you so choose. This version is available in both above ground and ground level installation options as well as several different sizes to fit your needs perfectly!
Jacuzzi Smart (JSM)
The JSM is the latest addition to the Jacuzzi family. It is a fully automatic home Jacuzzi that comes with an integrated computer. This computer will automate everything from the jet configuration to the temperature of your bath, making it an ideal addition to any high-end bathroom.
Of course, all of this technology comes at a price, and this version of the Jacuzzi will be more expensive than its cousin, but it also has more advanced features. You can use it for many years without having to replace anything!
How Much Do the Variants of Jacuzzi Cost?
The cost of a Jacuzzi (Classic) will range anywhere from $2000 to $5000 depending on the size of the tub as well as any options and accessories that you choose.
The Jacuzzi Air version usually costs more than the classic, but by less than $500 so it’s not a huge mark up. The Jacuzzi Original Air will cost about $500 more than its cousin, but you can find deals on the internet that often bring that price down to under $1500.
Finally, the Jacuzzi Smart costs around $1800. However, again this will depend greatly on your options and accessories!
What are Some of the Other Features Besides Jets?
Besides its jet configuration, there are several other features that a home Jacuzzi can have to ensure your relaxation is perfect!
These include things like waterproof speakers for your MP3 player or iPod, a water filtration system to keep your bath clean and sanitary, lighting systems in and around your tub to create a relaxing atmosphere for your soak, or even an aromatherapy system for scented bubbles!
You can also get lots of different styles of slippers for using in the tub if you don’t want to get your feet wet! There really are many different options out there when it comes to home Jacuzzis!
Depend on how often you use your Jacuzzi, the cost will differ.
The following are the average monthly maintenance cost of a Jacuzzi:
Air – $200 to $400 per month
Classic – $300 to $600 per month
Smart – $400 to $700 per month
Maintenance Cost of a Jacuzzi (Air, Classic, Original, Smart) are relatively lower if you are an existing owner, as compared to the first time buyer. The reason being is that, you already have an existing unit that has been used which means it will be more stable and less likely to break down.
However, there are some additional costs that you need to take note of due to wear and tear. If your current air blower unit is over 3 years old then it will need replacement. Otherwise the air blowers may not function properly if they have surpassed this 3 year mark.
The average cost of replacing the blower motor is around $120-$200 depending on whether it’s for a Smart or Air model.
In addition, if your water heater has exceeded its warranty period (or 5 years), you may want to consider replacing it with a new one before it starts leaking or giving problems as this can cause lots of damage in your house and even result in major repair costs.
Average Cost of Replacing Water Heater = Around $800
Determining whether you should repair or replace your existing Jacuzzi depends on the situation.
If your Jacuzzi is damaged and you have no choice but to replace it, then you should look at replacing it with a new model that is similar to the one you had before.
If your current Jacuzzi is performing well and has no major issues, then it may be better to just take good care of it by regularly cleaning it and maintaining the water chemistry.
