I did not plan on wri...
Is there any difference between Hot Tub and Jacuzzi? Reading descriptions to condo buildings in Daytona Beach area, I run into Hot Tubs, Jacuzzi, Jacuzzi Hot tub and Jacuzzi/Hot Tub. Asked my wife and my son, and they thought Hot Tub is outdoor, and Jacuzzi is smaller and indoor… But this is not ...
