WaterTech Air Jets
Air baths provide a different type of massage than a whirlpool bath; it's a non-aggressive soft tissue massage. The soft massage of an air bath is provided by millions of heated air bubbles that contact the skin after they are released from air injectors, air that is provided by a heated air blower. An air message soothes the body, boosts cardiac output, opens pores and improves circulation.
Whirlpool or Air? See this WaterTech Video to see the difference.
WaterTech Air System Features
• Air Injectors
WaterTech uses only air injectors with built-in brass check valve protection. The check valve opens and closes when the blower is switched on or off preventing water from ever entering into the air system (pipes, blower, manifold, etc). Injectors can be serviced from inside the tub.

The slim-line Injector covers provide 7 air ports per injector.
• Air Blower
Each WaterTech air bath is equipped with a 1 HP, 800 watt variable speed heated blower and electronic keypad. Blower and keypad carry Lifetime Warranties.
- One minute purge cycle that activates 20 minutes after blower is turned off.
- Variable speed
- Air heater
- Integrated muffler for quiet operation
- Blower requires a dedicated 20 amp GFCI circuit
- Electronic Controls
• Air Piping
To insure the highest level of hygiene, only high quality FDA approved food grade piping is used to supply air to WaterTech air injectors. Water never enters the air lines because WaterTech uses only air injectors with integrated check valve protection. Service on WaterTech air lines, if ever needed, is as simple as removing the air lines from the injector. Injectors are also easily serviced by removing the injector cap.
• Air Manifold
An air manifold is installed on each WaterTech air bath to distribute air to the injectors. The manifold has 2 additional check valves incorporated into its design to insure water never reaches the blower should an injector fail. The manifold provides equal air pressure and volume to all injectors.

• Deep Soak Overflow Drain
The difference between a standard drain and the Deep Soak Drain is that the Deep Soak overflow cover can be rotated to close the overflow if desired. Closing overflow increases the bath water depth from 2" to 5" depending on bath selected.
Caution- The Deep Soak Drain should not be closed until the bather is in the tub and the pump operating to insure that the water level will not overflow the tub. When draining the bath after use it is important to open the Pressflow drain so that the next time the bath is filled it can't overflow accidentally.
• Lift & Turn Drain
Available in chrome, nickel, polished brass and oil-rubbed bronze. Note: PVC drain is 1 1/2" and fits all tubs.
• Cable Drain
The cable drain allows the bather to open and close the drain with a twist of the overflow cover. Eliminates having to reach into the water to drain the tub. Available in chrome, nickel, polished brass and oil-rubbed bronze. Note: PVC drain is 1 1/2" and fits all tubs.
• Micro Mount
The micro mount feature not only gives your bathtub a whole new look, but it also provides you easier access upon existing your tub as the deck sits more flush with your surroundings. The Micro Lip option will reduce the height of the tub lip to roughly 3/4" tall. Not available on all tubs.
• LED Light
By simply pressing a button the bather may transition through 8 colors while the last selection will automatically transition through all 8 colors.
Come standard on several models, but are available for all models. Easily removed for cleaning and are available in black & white.
• Acrylic Grab Bars
Clear acrylic with nickel, chrome, or brass inserts or white, biscuit, or bone. Grab handles are not factory installed but are easily installed on the job site by contractor or plumber.
The ultimate water purification system that automatically neutralizes any bacteria, virus or odor in the water. All Watertech baths are U.L. certified for 100% drainage. This certifies that the water lines on Watertech baths drain 100% insuring that no used bath water remains or is trapped in any of the waterlines. The additional advantage of having an ozonator installed is that the ozone pumped through the system also effectively sanitizes the internal components of pipes, pump, jets, injectors, etc. More Information →
