Description

Description

Sit face to face with your partner at the end of a long day and unwind in the 6048 Elite whirlpool tub. The design of this tub uses every inch to create maximum bathing space within its modest dimensions, making it well-suited for bathrooms where space is a premium. Our Elite tubs feature our exclusive Top Overflow, so you get added water depth, up to four to six inches more than tubs with standard overflows.

This small but mighty tub is perfect for an alcove with a shower/bath combination. The unique design includes a curved lumbar support and a foot well for both bathers. Three whirlpool jets are dedicated to each bather’s back; one jet is aimed at the feet, and two are placed on each side for the thighs and calves. The jets can be adjusted for direction and pressure allowing each person a custom whirlpool massage. They are powered by our strongest high-pressure pump, and the rigid PVC plumbing is hand-formed by our technicians, so the water drains completely from the lines. This means no stagnate water in your lines. We use genuine Lucite acrylic for its durable, high-gloss finish and because it’s easy to clean and maintain.

Rest assured that when you purchase the 6048 Elite whirlpool tub, you are getting the highest quality and value for your money.

  • An access opening large enough to service your pump must be installed to meet code requirements.
  • Do not frame your whirlpool tub enclosure until you have your tub on the job site.
  • Carpenters, plumbers, and tile installers should verify all dimensions to ensure that the tub enclosure is properly sized for your whirlpool tub.
  • Detailed installation instructions are available on the installation page of this site.
  • Re-test your whirlpool tub for leaks or construction damage before you enclose your tub.

Reliable trucking (freight) companies have been selected by WaterTech Whirlpools to deliver each new Whirlpool Bath. WaterTech Whirlpools packages each bath individually to ensure safe delivery to each customer. The freight carrier will notify customer and schedule a delivery time after the bath leaves our manufacturing facility.

INSPECTION AND CLAIMS PROCEDURE: Follow the steps below to eliminate any questions about who is responsible for visible or concealed damage that may have occurred in shipping. Examine the shipping box for signs of damage or mishandling, i.e. staples pulled loose, flaps unglued, punches to the box, severe indentations, or crushed corners. If the box is damaged, the delivery person and receiving person / Consignee must note the damage to the box on delivery paperwork before opening the box. Open the box and inspect the tub for damage. If damage is found, call WaterTech Whirlpools at 1-800-289-8827 before accepting tub. Minor defects such as scuffs, scratches, etc… can be easily taken care of by one of our service people. All issues need to be resolved before signing delivery paperwork.

CONCEALED DAMAGE: WaterTech Whirlpools allows the consignee / owner no more than 48 hours from time of receipt to inspect and report any concealed damage (i.e. leaks, broken pipes, etc…) or shortages of merchandise ordered (i.e. heater, drain, jet trim, etc…). Report concealed damage and shortage to Americas Best Whirlpools 1-800-289-8827.

FAILURE OF THE CONSIGNEE TO INSPECT AND REPORT ANY CONCEALED DAMAGE WITHIN THE 48 HOUR PERIOD PLACES FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY CONCEALED DAMAGE ON THE CONSIGNEE.

PRE-TEST YOUR TUB: You must pretest your tub for leaks within 48 hours of receipt. WaterTech Whirlpools tubs go through rigorous testing for plumbing leaks and proper operation prior to shipping, but as a secondary precaution, the tub must be re-tested for leaks and proper operation within the allotted 48 hours and before installation. Test your tub in a location that will not be damaged by spilled water such as a basement, driveway, or a garage. Pre-testing your tub allows you to find any plumbing connections that might have worked loose during shipping.

HOW TO PRE-TEST YOUR TUB: Place your tub on a firm flat surface, make sure top of tub is level in all directions. Tape over the drain. Fill with water to 1 or 2 inches above the highest jet. Plug the motor into a GFCI protected outlet, and with the pump running, check all pipes and fittings for moisture. If no leaks are found, remove tape over drain and check for proper drainage. If all is correct, you may continue the Installation process.

IF ANY PROBLEMS ARE DISCOVERED DO NOT INSTALL THE TUB UNTIL YOU HAVE SPOKEN WITH A WATERTECH WHIRLPOOLS REPRESENTATIVE AT 1-800-289-8827

6464 Elite Whirlpool Bathtub

Rating:
Rated 5.00 out of 5
If you’ve got your heart set on a bathtub built for two, then the 6464 Elite whirlpool tub is for you. This tub will maximize any corner you put it into. Two arched seats hug you and your partner in comfort with matching pairs of armrests and two different jet configurations for your back—one aligned with your spine, the other with key muscles in your back. All 12 jets are spa quality and come with a 3-speed pressure controller, so you can adjust the pressure at will. Take turns in the seats for a complete massage experience. Built-in headrests and sloped backs increase the comfort factor. The Top Overflow drain is placed on the curve between the two seats and allows for greater water depth than the typical overflow installed on the side of other tubs, about four to six more inches to be exact. Like all our tubs, the 6464 is made from Lucite acrylic, so it’s built to last and is easy to clean. We use galvanized steel to reinforce the tub floor and mount the motor, so your tub has a solid base to sit on. Our pipes drain completely, so water will not get trapped in them and ruin your water quality. Turn your bathroom corner into a hidden oasis for two by purchasing the 6464 Elite whirlpool tub. Note: Prices do not include freight.  Please call for pricing.
