WaterTech Water Jets
Whirlpool baths provide a high-pressure, aggressive deep tissue and joint massage. Whirlpools are often found in hospitals, athletic training rooms and physical therapy facilities. A whirlpool bath is extremely beneficial in treating muscle sprains, damaged joints, back problems and aches and pains that arise from time to time as we age. Both The New England Journal of Medicine and National Arthritis Foundation have recognized and endorsed the benefits of whirlpool baths (hydrotherapy) in the enhancement of circulation, which is very important to anyone suffering from the affects of arthritis and diabetes.

Whirlpool System Features
• Pulsating Jet
One interchangeable pulsating jet supplied with each whirlpool bathtub. Jet nozzle spins and produces a pulsing action. This type of jet is often requested in the foot and back areas. Jet pulsation is adjustable. Interchangeable.
• Water Jets
Each whirlpool comes equipped with high performance spa jets. Bathers have complete control of each jet's pressure and direction. Jets turn on/off by rotating the nozzle or jet face. Jets can be easily removed from the inside the tub for servicing or cleaning. Each WaterTech whirlpool is engineered to insure that jets, pump, piping and suction cover are correctly sized to insure maximum performance.
• Silent Injector
For maximum hydrotherapy all whirlpool jets need a supply of air. Ideally each jet should receive an equal amount of air. WaterTech is the only manufacturer that installs a silent air injector at each jet. This insures a balanced system and that each jet will produce high pressure hydrotherapy. Silent air valves, located at each jet, provides for quiet operation.
• Power Control
3 Speed control allows simultaneous adjustment of jet massage intensity (high, medium, and low)
• Whirlpool Pump
Pumps are 100% self draining with quick disconnect unions and electrical cord. If a problem ever develops with a pump simply call and a replacement will be shipped at no charge. Each pump carries a Lifetime Warranty. Pump upgrades offered on some models. Custom pump locations available for all models.
WaterTech Whirlpool Options:
• Turbo Charge System
The turbo charging system is composed of a single speed, 1 h.p., 675 watt heated air blower, hoses, controls, 8 port manifold and is factory installed. Turbo charging a whirlpool bath system allows jets to provide additional thrust and pressure at each jet. Per pump.
• Low Water Sensor
Great for those families with young ones running around! The low water sensor is a factory installed device that will not let the tub operate unless the water level is at the appropriate level. This is a nice safety precaution to keep young children from turning on the tub while it is empty.
• Custom Pump Location
Place the pump where you want it. All building codes require access to the pump for electrical hook up and servicing. May require additional space.
• 3HP Pump Upgrade
If the model you choose comes standard with a 2 H.P. pump you can upgrade to a 3 H.P. for additional pressure. We recommend upgrading especially when adding additional jets. Each pump carries a Lifetime Warranty.
• Additional Jets
While WaterTech whirlpools are engineered to provide maximum hydrotherapy, they realize certain individuals may want or need special jet locations to provide them with hydrotherapy to particular body areas such as knees, feet, back, etc. They will customize our whirlpools to meet your individual needs. Their engineering department will review all requests and do all we can to meet your specifications.
• Additional Pulsating Jet
Jet nozzle spins and produces a pulsing action. This type of jet is often requested in the foot and back areas. Jet pulsation is adjustable.
• Jet Finishes
Chrome, nickel, polished brass and oil-rubbed bronze. Note: White and bone jets are standard in all tubs
• Electric Heater
Available for all models. Heater specifications: 1.5KW, 120V, 12.5 A. Requires dedicated GFCI circuit. Heater maintains bath water temperature during use and prevents the water temperature from decreasing. Equipped with automatic reset.
• Heated Backrest

• 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 →
