How Much Does a Jacuzzi Weigh?

Installing a Jacuzzi can be a difficult process and it is good to know how much your tub or bath weighs beforehand as this will enable you to determine whether or not you have the building infrastructure to support a Jacuzzi in your home.

Jacuzzis vary in weight and size


Jacuzzi actually manufactures traditional bathtubs and showers, in addition to its line of hot tubs. However, the term "Jacuzzi" has become almost synonymous with "hot tub" as well as the company's famous line of whirlpool baths.

Hot Tubs

A small Jacuzzi hot tub that fits two or three people inside weighs 500 lbs., on average, when it is empty; when it is full of water, it can weigh up to 3,000 lbs. Larger Jacuzzi hot tubs (that fit up to six people) weigh on average 1,000 lbs.when empty and up to 6,000 lbs. when full of water.

Whirlpool Baths

Like Jacuzzi's line of hot tubs, its line of whirlpool baths comes in various sizes — though as they are intended for bathrooms, they are typically much smaller, ranging in weight from 200 to 500 pounds when dry, 750 to 3,000 pounds when full.
