Origin: Candido Jacuzzi (1903-1986) was an Italian inventor who moved to the USA. When his young son was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, Jacuzzi invented a pump that could be used in a bathtub for hydrotherapy. He put the pump on the market and Jacuzzi tubs became popular in health centres and spas.
