The Ella Deluxe acrylic walk-in bathtub is sized for the average bather and comes equipped with a comfortable 19 ¾” wide molded seat and a beautifully custom crafted brushed stainless-steel door with frosted tempered glass offering this tub a unique high-end look. A low step-in threshold, textured slip resistant floor, as well as wall and deck mounted grab bars work in unison to allow for easy and safe entry and exit of the tub. The acrylic shell is backed by a solid rustproof stainless-steel frame with adjustable leveling legs, giving you a safe, sturdy, and long-lasting walk-in bathtub.
The Deluxe also includes one (1) reversible end panel for left or right corner installation option and one (1) extension panel kit for 60” alcove installations. Additionally, the Deluxe has two removable access panels and one toe kick access panel for service access if needed. All Ella’s Bubbles walk-in tubs have a limited lifetime warranty for shell, door and the frame.
One of the best and exclusive Deluxe features is its Dual Drain Technology (DDT) which consists of two (2) independently operated 2” gravity driven drains. Each drain is outfitted with its own overflow and stainless-steel cable operated drain opener with extended handle for an easier grip. Typical drainage time is approximately +/-80 seconds at ideal in-home plumbing conditions. Having two gravity driven 2” drains not only provides you with quick and reliable drainage, but also acts as a safety feature in case if one drain fails, allowing you to safely drain and exit the walk-in tub. The two-inch drains can be connected using Tee or Y 2” pipe connectors to the standard 1 ½” or 2” house drain. If possible, it is recommended to connect into 2” or 3” house drain for a faster drainage time. Ella gravity driven Dual Drain drains are fast and reliable because they do not require electric pump. Whereas electrical driven drains may fail due to electrical shorts or power outages.
Air Massage System
The air massage system includes an air pump with a 3-speed variable push control and strategically positioned air jet system for optimal therapeutic relief. A digital controller option is also available with dual massage (air and hydro) package however the on/off push controls are the most popular choice considering the ease of use. The push controls have a raised design for easy push on/off action. Smaller digital controller may be harder to see and operate by elderly however that is a great option for people with specific design requirements.
The Ella Deluxe has ten (10) air jets strategically placed in order to deliver optimal therapeutic relief while you bathe. These jets are designed flush with the acrylic shell in order to ensure maximum comfort. Two (2) bidet jets are in the seat area as well in addition to eight (8) floor jets that deliver a gentle massage to your feet and legs while you bathe. Ten (10) jets in total, all strategically placed to give you the best bathing experience imaginable.
The air massage system also includes the auto-purge feature. This feature engages automatically 20 minutes after the pump has been turned off to purge water out of the air jet lines. The auto-purge will engage automatically and run for 120 seconds to ensure your system is clear and free of moisture and excess water helping to prevent the mildew build up
