Description

Description

The A6048 air bathtub is a classic design that accommodates two bathers sitting side by side. The tub offers dual stacked back jets and sculptured arm rests which are amenities that provide comfort to each bather. For those wanting a shower over the air bath, this tub’s rectangular shape makes it easy to include a shower in its design. The A6048 air bathtub has 28 watertight air injectors with 196 airports, which insure water never enters any part of the air system.

We highly recommend anyone buying an air bath review the differences between injector air baths and other manufacturers air baths with a drilled hole and channel system. Watertech is the only company that places air jets in the floor and walls 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 60×48 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. For those wanting to increase the tubs water depth, the air bath can be ordered with an optional press-flow drain/overflow assembly that increases the water depth an additional 3”.

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

A7236 Elite Air Bathtub

Want plenty of room to stretch out and linger in your bathtub? You won’t feel cramped in the six-foot long 7236 Elite air bath. It has more than enough room for even the tallest bather, plus enough features to make you feel pampered. Twenty-seven spa-grade air injectors deliver air massage in this tub. Five of them are recessed into the reclined seat back; four side jets massage the upper and lower legs, and 18 spread throughout the floor create even more bubble action. All the injectors are integrated into a system of sealed PVC air lines, instead of an air channel system simply drilled in the tub floor. This means our system delivers consistent air pressure to every jet through clean, dry lines. Molded armrests follow the curves of the tub and provide added comfort. Our exclusive Top Overflow allows you to fill the tub to two inches from the top, adding superior water depth to the tub. Customize the 7236 Elite to fit your design plan by choosing from several Lucite acrylic surface finishes and faucet and drain finishes. The Lucite surface is easy to clean, and the watertight air valves stay dry for fresh, clean air every time you bathe. A galvanized steel base and motor mount give a solid footing under the tub. For ease of care, durability, and quality, you can’t beat a Watertech tub. Note: Prices do not include freight.  Please call for pricing.
