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.

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

6043 Whirlpool Bathtub

The 6043 creates bathing for two in a tub that won’t overwhelm your bathroom’s floor space. By narrowing the deck, we’ve utilized every inch of space to make a tub that seats two bathers in comfort. Each bather has a reclined back rest with three recessed jets, plus three more jets a piece to reach hips, thighs, calves, and feet. All jets can be adjusted for direction and pressure, so each bather’s experience can be customized. Its trim size and rectangular shape mean it can easily fit into a bathroom alcove with a shower installed overhead. Its simple design and Lucite surface make it easy to clean. A galvanized steel base support the tub floor and motor, so you won’t be let down by a sagging or warped tub. Our technicians hand form rigid PVC pipes so all the water drains out of them. Other manufacturers don’t use rigid PVC, so water collects in the lines and creates mold, mildew, and bacteria. Turn any size bathroom into a spa retreat for two by choosing the 6043 whirlpool tub. It’s packed full of features that make it a smart choice for the savvy shopper. Note: Prices do not include freight.  Please call for pricing.
