6048 Whirlpool Bathtub

Description

Description

The 6048 whirlpool bath is a classic design that accommodates two bathers sitting side by side. 10 jets massage the bather’s feet, legs, hips, knees, back and neck. Dual stacked back jets and sculptured arm rests are amenities that provide comfort and pleasure to each bather. For those who would like to have a whirlpool and shower in the same area, the 6048 whirlpool bathtub’s flat deck area and rectangular shape allows this jetted tub to have a shower designed over it accommodating either a shower door or curtain. 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 Jacuzzi- style acrylic 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 often found only in hot tubs and spas.

Watertech’s optional Fill and Drain faucet is extremely popular on all our baths and only available from Watertech. 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 acrylic bathtub shell. This 2 person 60X48 jacuzzi style tub has extra leg room and width. For those wanting even a deeper water depth, the bathtub can be ordered with an optional press-flow drain/overflow assembly that increases water depth an additional 3”.

WaterTech is dedicated to serving you with reliability and integrity. If you are remodeling a bathroom, adding a bath to your existing home, or building a new residence, a Watertech bath will add a touch of luxury and elegance to your home.

  • 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.

Reliable trucking (freight) companies have been selected by WaterTech Whirlpools to deliver each new Whirlpool Bath. WaterTech Whirlpools packages each bath individually to ensure safe delivery to each customer. The freight carrier will notify customer and schedule a delivery time after the bath leaves our manufacturing facility.

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.
