WaterTech’s new vibro sonic massage bath was developed to provide a shiatsu massage for a bathers back and feet. The most immediate effect of a vibro sonic massage is pain relief. Combined with hot water, the massage will allow your body to release the necessary endorphins to relax tired muscles and aching feet.
By definition a shiatsu massage is an alternative technique that involves pressure applied to specific points on the body to release fatigue, tension and pain. Shiatsu is Japanese for finger pressure, also know as acupressure, thought to improve blood circulation as well as improve the lymphatic system.
According to a pilot study conducted at Cedars – Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA, massage therapy reduces pain and muscle spasms in patients who have undergone heart bypass surgery. Physicians and other healthcare providers are increasingly recommending massage and one national study reported 54 percent of primary care physicians and family practitioners encourage their patients to pursue massage therapy as a treatment.
WaterTech’s vibro sonic bath, model 7236VS, has 8 vibro sonic pads and each pad has its own electro magnetic motor with a silicone center thumb nozzle that slightly protrudes from the face of the pad. The silicone thumb softly compresses against the body when the pads are turned on and massages the bather’s feet, neck and back.
Each vibro sonic bath comes with a remote control that turns the bath on/off, has 5 vibration speeds and intensities and gives the bather a choice of 3 modes of sequences of the pads. The pads were designed to operate either with or without water in the tub.
The three most popular options consumers order with the 7236VS are: a soaking tub heater, surface heating system and deep soak drain assembly.

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
