Kiat Memilih Jacuzzi Yang Usefull dan Safety

Dewasa ini Jacuzzi sudah merupakan suatu kebutuhan terkait dengan rekreasi, kesehatan dan kecantikan. Jacuzzi menungkinkan kita untuk bersantai sambil menikmati pijatan hydrotherapi yang lembut dan menyehatkan. Berikut manfaat jacuzzi menurut beberapa ahli (dikutip dari beberapa literatur) :
1. Menghilangkan lelah
2. Menghilangkan stress
3. Meremajakan kulit
4. Therapi masalah-masalah punggung
5. Therapi ringan masalah-masalah otot
6. Meremajakan pikiran dan jiwa. Dll
Itu semua didapatkan dari pijatan hydrotherapi dipadu dengan kehangatan air dari Jacuzzi.
Apakah semua jacuzzi bisa berfungsi demikain? Apakah jacuzzi aman mengingat operasional jacuzzi membutuhkan listrik ribuan watt dipadu dengan air? Berikut tip yang harus kita pikirkan sebelum memutuskan membeli jacuzzi (dikutip dari beberapa literatur):
1. Tanyakan pada penjual ketersedian panel listriknya. Sebagian besar Jacuzzi yang dijual di Indonesia berasal dari impor, yang harus kita ingat, sistem kelistrikan negara-negara maju sudah sangat aman, berbeda jauh dengan sistem kelistrikan di Indonesia. Panel sangat penting untuk keamanan, kesalahan dalam hal ini bisa mengakibatkan kematian akibat tersengat listrik tegangan tinggi.
2. Perpipaan. Untuk keindahan dan kepraktisan tampilan, Portable Jacuzzi menggunakan pipa elastis (elastic pipe). Namun berdasarkan riset para ahli dinegara-negara maju pengguna Jacuzzi bahwa penggunaan elastic pipe sangat tidak disarankan, karena tidak standart dan berbahaya bagi kesehatan dan keamanan.
3. Bathtub. Teredia beragam model dan bahan bathtub jacuzzi. Menurut para ahlinya, bahan yang aman untuk bathtub jacuzzi adalah fiberglass, acrylic, marbel, onyc dan bahan cor. Sangat tidak disarankan penggunan bahan plastik dan tembok biasa. Mengingat jacuzzi memerlukan panas tertentu dalam operasionalnya.
4. Ketersediaan pemanas air. Air panas merupakan syarat mutlak berfungsinya jacuzzi. Ketersediaan pemanas harus benar-benar sesuai dengan ukutan bathtubnya. Misal untuk 2-3 orang amannya disediakan pemanas dengan kapasitas 50L. Jika kurang dari itu dimungkinkan Jacuzzi tidak bisa berfungsi optimal.
5. Filter. Untuk jacuzzi ukuran 4 person, filter merupakan hal yang wajib, meskipun ketersediaan air Anda berlimpah. Karena tidak seperti kolam biasa, filter disini berfungsi untuk menyaring kuman-kuman atau binatang kecil yang gampang sekali berkembang dalam suhu hangatnya jacuzzi.
6. Ketersediaan massage dan sirkulasi. Tanyakan detail kepada penjual, tentang hal ini karena sama-sama perputaran air, biar bisa menekan harga sirkulasi ini dikatakan sebagai massage, padahal seharusnya ini dua hal yang berbeda, meski terlihat sama.
