Description

A popular single person Elite air bath. Extremely large bathing area with extra leg room, which is the result of the gently curved foot area of the air bathtub. The rectangular shape allows it to be incorporated into a shower design. For your comfort all back jets are recessed. Watertech’s exclusive top overflow design, only available from Watertech, allows all Elite bathtubs to be filled within 2” inches of the top of the bathtub, insuring the bather gets a full body massage from the soles of their feet to their neck and shoulders. Watertech’s Elite baths have a water depth 4” – 6” deeper than a bath with the standard side overflow.  This air bath has 29 watertight air injectors with 203 air ports. Each injector has an integral check valve that insures water never gets past the injector into any part of the air system.

We highly recommend anyone purchasing an air bath review the differences between baths with air injectors and other manufacturer’s drilled holes and channel system air baths. Our product catalogue explains the numerous differences between air baths with air injectors and air baths with the drilled holes channel system. Watertech is the only manufacturer that places air injectors (jets) in the floor and wall of the air bath to provide a complete body massage.

All Watertech air baths are constructed with a galvanized steel base (no wood – no plastic) to insure the floor of the air bath will never flex or warp. There is a Lifetime warranty on the variable speed heated air blower and the 60”x42” acrylic bathtub shell. Any condensation that might form in the air lines during operation is dried 20 minutes after the air bath is emptied because the heated blower automatically comes on for several minutes to dry all the air lines.

1 review for A6042 Elite Air Bathtub

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    During our master bath remodel, we ordered a combo bath tub from your company through Lowes. Over a week or two period we had questions regarding options and functions of the tub we were interested in. After the tub was installed, the air bath blower switch was faulty. We were able to increase the air pressure, but not decrease it. Another call to your company to see if we were operating it correctly, something was broke, or it was just operating as it should.

    Another phone call, another patient representative on the other end. We explained our problem and he matter of factly said; “Don’t worry about it, it sounds like a faulty switch, and we’ll just drop another one in the mail today.” I gave him my name and address, and that was it. Although I ordered it through Lowes, and you really wouldn’t have any of MY information in your system, without hesitation you fixed or problem, no questions asked. I called a few days later to check on the status of our part and we were told it should be there tomorrow. It was, we installed it and works like a charm.

    It is costumer service like this that not only makes us glad that we chose your company, but recommending you to anyone else, is hands down an easy decision. It is costumer service like this that not only makes us glad that we chose your company, but recommending you to anyone else, is hands down an easy decision.

    It’s easy to complain when something goes wrong, but it’s just important to recognize and praise a job well done. And with that sir, we give you high praise for making our experience with your company effortless.

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
