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 tub, spa, jacuzzi
