News about Jimmy Kimmel’s holiday wishes had us going for a moment.

Before we saw this promo photo and video for the Oscars (below), we only heard news about his passion for getting a jet pack for the holidays.

So we can be forgiven that our Bullfrog Spas’ JetPak-loving hearts skipped a little beat as we thought, yippee, what a terrific endorsement!

Alas, after seeing the video, we realized he meant, of course, a jet pack that could lift him up and propel him through the air…not exactly what Bullfrog’s JetPaks would accomplish for him.

All this notwithstanding, with the Oscars coming the first week in March, and with the name JetPaks (however it’s spelled) being bandied about a lot because of that, we thought the topic of our first blog in the new year should be JetPaks — the massage-giving and extremely comfortable spa seats one gets in every Bullfrog Spa.

When it comes to warm water therapy — or the benefits of massages — not all hot tub manufacturers offer equal quality.


So how can I keep from making a hot tub buying mistake?

“Frankly, you won’t make a mistake if you are armed with the right information,” says Bill Renter, our own Hot Tub and Spa Expert.

“First, know that all hot tub massages are not equal. For a truly health-giving and stress-relieving experience, the key is having a good variety of different pulsating jets available in your spa to meet the needs of the moment. And, now this may seem counter-intuitive, but there should be a limited number of these jets as well —  as opposed to cramming in a large number of jets into one spa.”

Bill explains that some manufacturers boast they have a large amount of jets in their tubs.

“First, all their jets usually give all the same massages, which is not good. And, second — and this is important — too many jets create a law of diminishing returns. The more jets you have, the weaker the jets’ force will be. Frankly, it’s no massage at all, if the penetration into tissue and muscle is weak.”

On the other hand, the Bullfrog Spas that Best Hot Tubs offers include up to 6 individual massage jets. These individual JetPaks are part of a patented system that come in a wide variety of different pressure point actions. By installing a limited number of these, with each offering very different massage points, means that when you lie back against a neck massage jet, for example, you can be sure it will hit both the neck and shoulders with a strong, tension relieving action.

“Cheap hot tubs may say they have a large number of jets, but comparing them to Bullfrog Spa jets, you’ll find the other spas are frequently offering 80% less pulsating strength,” says Bill.

With the exception of Bullfrog’s more price-friendly X Series, each JetPak snaps in and out…and in a matter of seconds. So you and your friends can have the massage that is ideal at that moment.

So, when buying a portable spa, be sure you are not making one of the most common hot tub buying mistakes.

Pristine bubbly warm water is even more appealing in winter. And so are the massages!

But you don’t have to take our word for it. You can come to any of our three showrooms (Westbury, Farmingdale, Windham/NY) and take a wet test! Just give us a call and we’ll have a hot tub ready and waiting.

And if you have your own hot tub, you could host an Oscars 2018 hot tub party. We’ll try to have ideas for that next month.

We’re also extending this invitation to Jimmy Kimmel:  stop by and try our JetPaks whenever you’re in New York. See if Bullfrog’s JetPaks aren’t, in their own way, as thrilling as the one that takes you flying.
