'DOMENICO-AIR73' 73" CoreAcryl Acrylic French Bateau Pedestal HEATED AIR JETTED Bathtub Package with a Patina Copper Leaf Exterior
Ready to connect to a 15 amp GFCI
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 copper patina leaf. We don't paint the surface and sponge on a darker paint for ageing, we apply genuine copper leaf to the entire exterior surface of the tub and then apply specially prepared antiquing liquids to expedite the darkening process of the copper patina. While there are various contrasting shades of gold, copper and browns, at areas on the tub, there may also be some soft greens, this would be typical of a naturally aged copper patina. While the exterior definitely looks like metal, it shows what appears to be the effects of natural aging on the surface.
To maintain a natural look, we finish with three layers of soft eggshell gloss lacquer as shown on photo.
To assist you in your decision making, we'll be happy to send samples on request.Finishing
The exterior is very simple to maintain and needs just a soft soapy cloth to remove any marks. Sine we apply the lacquer, the patina will not change over the years.
