Description

Description

A great two person whirlpool that allows bathers to face each other. The bathtubs rectangular shape also allows it to be incorporated into a shower design. This jacuzzi-style jetted tub has exceptional bathing well width and leg room. A flat deck area at each end of the tub is an excellent place for mounting a Roman Tub Filler and Hand Shower. The tub has a center drain location. The 7243 whirlpool bathtub is only 1” wider than a standard 72”x42” whirlpool. Three back jets massage each bather. Two jets provide hydrotherapy for the feet. Four additional jets massage legs, hips, knees and upper body. Each jet eyeball is directional so the bather can select the area they want the jet to massage. The scalloped face of the jet can be rotated to increase or decrease the pressure and flow from the jet.

A three speed control (high, medium or low) is standard on all WaterTech whirlpools and allows all jets pressure and flow to be controlled simultaneously. All neck and back jets are recessed in all whirlpool, combination and air baths. A free pulsating jet, interchangeable with any jet in the tub, is provided with each bath and can be changed out in a matter of seconds and delivers a rotating – pulsating massage action usually found only in hot tubs and spas. Watertech’s optional Fill and Drain faucet is extremely popular on all our baths.

WaterTech bathtubs are constructed with a galvanized steel base (no wood – no plastic) to insure the floor of the bath will never flex or warp. Rigid PVC waterlines are U.L. certified for 100% drainage, insuring a clean and sanitary massage experience with every bath. There is a Lifetime warranty on the pump and 72×43 acrylic bathtub shell. For those wanting even a deeper water depth, the bathtub can be ordered with an optional press-flow drain/overflow assembly that increase water depth an additional 3.”

    Subject: drains vs. pumps
    Hi Watertech,
    We are interested in your 7243 tub, but we are tucking it into a corner in our new house against two outside walls. The pump needs to be on a non-wall tub end, and the drain opposite an outside wall. Do you ever reverse the pump locations to accommodate a need like ours?
    Bill M. in California
    Response from Watertech
    Yes, the pump can be relocated, just send us a sketch showing where you want the pump. If we put it on the opposite end near the foot jet, it will stay under the lip of the tub, anywhere else it will stick out past the lip of the tub.
    Have a nice day,
    Shane
    Response from Bill M. in California
    Shane, thank you for your response. We appreciate the option to change the pump location and not rearrange our floor plan. Our sketch indicates where we need the pump.

    I recently ordered and received your model 7243 whirlpool tub (order #xxx). I’d like to start by saying the tub is installed and runs great. The heater is something I’d recommend to anyone. We really enjoy it. However, the main reason for sending this email is to thank two individuals for their customer service efforts. I only know them by their first name so I’d like to thank Karen and Mo. When I needed something they were able to assist me and give me advise that made my experience with Watertech worth recommending to others.

Precautions & Installation Tips

  • Do not lift or carry the whirlpool tub by the supply or return pipes - they could break or spring leaks.
  • You must install a mortar bed beneath your tub to meet code and warranty requirements.
  • 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.

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
