'CHRISTOFORO-AIR73' 73" CoreAcryl Acrylic French Bateau Pedestal HEATED AIR JETTED Bathtub Package with Aged Chrome Exterior
Made in the USA,
Soothe away the aches of the day in a luxurious heated air massage bathtub. All of our individual flat face air injectors are placed on the bottom of the tub to massage calves and thighs.
To keep the injected air bubbles as warm as possible, we equip the blower with a powerful heating element to pre-heat the injected air. This heater will raise the ambient temperature 15 to 20 degrees within a period of around 2 minutes, so switching the air jetting on before entering the tub can be a good idea. While not feeling just as cool, even heated air bubbles will feel a little cool when they make contact with the skin.To maintain hygiene in the air pipes, every time you take a bath and drain the water, engage the blower for about 15 seconds to purge all residual water in the lines. Every three months, we recommend that you fill the tub about two inches over the highest jet with lukewarm water and add a half cup of bleach. Engage the blower and let run for two minutes. Empty and repeat this step with clean water and purge the lines when the tub is empty.
In the unlikely event of a blower failure, replacing it is also very simple, just disconnect the tub from the drain, turn it over and replace the blower, about a 30 minute job.Product Details
The gorgeous shape of this pedestal tub is made even more elegant when finished in aged chrome. This is not a glitzy tub and in fact the exterior finish is relatively subdued and subtle. While the exterior definitely looks like metal, it shows what appears to be the effects of natural aging on the surface.
A truly beautiful bathtub finished in high gloss or eggshell finish Aged Chrome exterior and high gloss white interior with an easy clean slip resistant floor.
The Aged Chrome is a proprietary finish developed by Baths of Distinction in 2013. It consists of several step processes for initial coating, polishing and applying a specially developed chrome particle liquid to the surface before finishing with three coats of high gloss or eggshell clear protective lacquer. The end result is a metallic worn chrome look that has been polished to show it's original sheen. It is simple to wipe clean, needing only a soft cloth.
To assist you in your decision making, we'll be happy to send samples on request.Finishing
The exterior of the tub is sanded and primed ready for application. After applying three coats of specially prepared high gloss black we gradually add a specially developed chrome particle paint. The exterior is allowed to dry and harden for three days to leave the resulting faded or aged chrome look. We finish the exterior with three coats of protective clear lacquer which makes cleaning and maintenance the simplest of jobs. Just a wipe with a soft cloth will remove any mark or stain.
