A truly fabulous and spacious bathtub finished in high gloss white acrylic exterior and interior with an easy clean slip resistant floor.
Soothe away the aches of the day in a luxurious hot air massage bathtub. We offer a three speed control air pressure with an oscillating feature. All of our individual flat face air injectors are placed on the bottom of the tub to massage calves and thighs.We use a powerful 600w heater in our hot air blower to increase the air temperature to 115 degrees Fahrenheit (much hotter than normal bath water), but you may still notice a slight difference in bubble temperature to your bath water, especially at start up. These bubbles will become warmer as the blower and heater get up to their operating temperature.
Installation on this tub is very simple, everything needed is part of the tub. Simply connect the regular 3-pin plug to a 110v-15 amp GFCI and you're ready to go. The blower is inside the pedestal. In the unlikely event of a blower failure, replacing it is also very simple, just disconnect the electric and tub from the drain, turn it over and replace the blower, about a 30 minute job.
On the back or wall side of these pedestal jetted tubs, to comply with UL regulations and for operating safety, we are required to install a Hartford loop. Since this is at the back or side of the tub, it will not be visible if the tub is placed against a wall. If the tub is being placed in a central position, this is a feature of which you should be aware.
The blower is programmed with an automatic purge cycle to blow out any residual water left in the lines after use. The purge cycle starts 20 minutes after you turn off the blower and it will run for 5 minutes.
For two reasons, it is important to allow the blower to run the full 5 minutes, one, it will totally dry the lines and two, if you press the stop button, it will re-set to start again in another 20 minutes.
