Option on Air & Soaking Tubs
(Not Available on Whirlpool, Stream Bathtubs or the HTISOAK System)

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.

• HTISOAK | Recirculating Pump & Heater
Suction Cover for Recirculating Pump & Heater
Option on Soakers, Air Baths and Stream Bath
The inline heating system for soaking tubs and air baths is manually activated by an On / Off switch. 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 such as the one shown above, flows through the inline heater and is reintroduced into the bath through an 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.
