At the turn of the 20th cen­tu­ry, sev­en  broth­ers immi­grat­ed to Cal­i­for­nia. Their last name? Jacuzzi. They were all very inven­tive and found employ­ment as machin­ists in the Berkley area.

One of them, Can­di­do, had a young son who suf­fered from rheuma­toid arthri­tis and chron­ic pain. He found relief in hydrother­a­py vis­its at hos­pi­tals but his father hat­ed to see his pain in between vis­its. He start­ed tin­ker­ing and found that agri­cul­tur­al water pumps could be adapt­ed to pro­vide at-home whirlpool treat­ments for his son.

That lit­tle boy, Ken­neth, would take charge of the com­pa­ny and even­tu­al­ly make Jacuzzi a house­hold name. The rest… is his­to­ tub, spa, jacuzzi
