183. Joyful Jacuzzi

The whirl pool bath widely known as Jacuzzi is named after Candido Jacuzzi, an Italian immigrant to the U.S.A.

Originally his family business was production of air crafts. In 1921, one of the Jacuzzi brothers died in the crash of a prototype mono plane. The family then changed over to a less dangerous business–manufacture of hydraulic pumps.

When his son was crippled by rheumatoid arthritis, the senior Jacuzzi used one of his firm’s pumps to give the boy a hydro massage.

This technique caught up and was perfected in 1950. Soon it became the latest fad of the rich and affluent. This revolutionary bath became popular, particularly in California. Today it is a multimillion dollar business.

Who would ever think that an air crash and an attack of rheumatoid arthritis would be the root cause of a new multimillion dollar business?
