• Stereo H2O
Audio Transducer
Whether the objective is therapy or simple listening enjoyment, MTI baths offer the possibility of an integrated audio system. Both the technology and the components are absolute state-of-the art. The “speakers” are actually high-performance acoustic transducers engineered with the most advanced level of technology and materials. The acoustic transducer system is applied to the bath shell’s exterior surface near the waterline and integrated in the tub structure. This effectively transforms the bath shell into a sounding board, which evenly distributes the sound within the entire tub environment, surrounding the bather with invigorating or relaxing sounds of choice. These acoustic transducers not only generate full spectrum sound, but also enhance this experience further by introducing bass frequencies into the water, bringing new life and richness never offered previously. In fact, Stereo H2O actually lets you feel the music through your body as it travels through the bath water.
Stereo H2O® | 4 transducers. Pre-wired leads compatible with stereo receiver/amplifier of choice, or a product such as those available from Sonos, Inc.
Stereo H2O® with Bluetooth | 2 transducers. Installed with ready-to-use Bluetooth amp and on/off button

• LED Lighting
LED Lighting changes the water color
Underwater lighting is provided by 2 digitally controlled LEDs (unless otherwise specified). A control button allows selection of constant color or preset programs to achieve the desired lighting effects.

Different colors affect humans differently. Red energizes and activates blood flow, while yellow stimulates nerve functions and may aid the digestive process. Orange is a mix of red and yellow and carries greater therapeutic characteristics than both of these colors used separately, including the soothing of muscle and joint pain.
Green, as the intermediate color of the light spectrum, fosters harmony and has a calming, restorative effect on the mind and body. Blue, a cooler color, is comprised of light rays that are very fine, which allow them to penetrate deep within to promote mental and physical calmness. Purple is an extremely powerful color and has many virtues. Traditionally, purple is known for its power to inspire creativity as well as relieve irritability and reestablish a peaceful state.
• Electrical requirements: 1 amp, 110 VAC.
• Microbubbles
Billions of Tiny Bubbles
Option on Air & Soaking Tubs
(Not Available on Whirlpool, Stream Bathtubs or the HTISOAK System)
System components may extend up to 5” beyond perimeter of the tub
For health and beauty. Microbubbles innovative technology super-saturates the water with up to 50% more dissolved oxygen than regular water alone. Billions of tiny oxygen-rich microbubbles gently remove impurities from skin and pores, leaving the body cleansed and gently exfoliated. The result is skin that is hydrated, moisturized and restored, feeling soft, smooth and supple. As billions of microbubbles quietly pop around you, the energy they release also keeps bath water warm.

• Heater
Suction Cover for Recirculating Pump & Heater
These systems use electricity to maintain bath water heat, not to heat cold water. The thermostat for these systems is pre-set by the manufacturer to maintain bath water temperature at 104° F, so the bather can enjoy their bath longer.

HTISOAK | Recirculating Pump & Heater
Option on Soakers, Air Baths and Stream Bath
This system gently recirculates the bath water through the inline heater, with negligible disturbance to the water. The water is drawn in through an intake, like shown below, flows through the inline heater and is reintroduced into the bath through a second output that has the same appearance. This system uses a 1500-watt inline heater and a 1/2 hp recirculating pump. This system draws 17.5 amps; so a separate 20 amp, 110VAC circuit is required.

HTI | Heater
Option on Whirlpools
The inline heating system for whirlpools is activated when the pump is turned on, maintaining the temperature of the bath water. No external switch is needed.
• Radiance Bath Surface Heating System (2 Zones)
Watrrming Pads for Seat & Backrest
Option on Air & Soaking Tubs (Not Available on Whirlpool Tubs)
Important Notes:

• Radiance placed on floor locations will affect placement of air jets
• Spa Mode is not available on tubs equipped tubs Radiance.

Radiance heat system is a bathing amenity that applies radiant heat technology to warm the interior surface of the tub. Radiance permeates the bath surface with heat, creating a supreme haven for relaxation. Not only does Radiance eliminate the shock of a cold tub for shoulders, neck, back or bottom, but you will continue to feel its soothing warmth throughout your bathing experience. You can experience warmth above the waterline, as well as below. Or, even without the water.
Radiance is controlled by a simple ON / OFF switch that also allows selection of area(s) to be heated. It utilizes electric heating grids to provide radiant heat for the bath surface. It operates on 28 volts and plugs into a 110-volt, 15 amp GFCI outlet. Since Radiance uses only about as much energy as a standard light bulb, leaving it on will ensure a warm bath shell whenever the user chooses to bathe.

• Virtual Spout
Tub filler spout in the wall of the bath

It is factory-installed on an inside wall of the tub and is “stubbed-out” under the tub with copper pipe so a plumber can tie the incoming water to the port. Hot & Cold mixing valves are need to control the water flow. Perfect for tub & shower applications! No more tub spout in the way.
