32″W x 52″L (60″ with Extension)
The Ella Monaco acrylic walk-in bathtub is our wider more spacious model of our outward swing door walk-in tubs and comes equipped with a comfortable wide 23” molded seat and a beautifully custom crafted industrial plastic composite door with 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 reversible end panel included has matching wave patterns to ensure a nice and fluid design all around your tub. An extra panel can be ordered to finish both ends in a free-standing installation option when both ends need to be covered by end panels. All fixtures, options and sizing remain the same between the two tubs.
The Monaco 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 Monaco has two removable access panels and one toe kick access panel for service access if needed. The Ella Monaco has a limited lifetime warranty for shell, door and the frame
One of the best and exclusive features of the Monaco 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.
Our unique gear and shaft driven 3-latch door edges out our competition who typically use a single latch/lever system. A 3-latch door system provides a more secure and watertight door seal than the conventional single latch system, providing you with a leak-free bathing experience.
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 Monaco/Chi has sixteen (16) 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. Eight (8) upper seat area fixed flat design jets work to provide relief to your back, hips and thighs in addition to the eight (8) floor jets in the lower foot area which deliver a gentle massage to your feet and legs while you bathe. Sixteen (16) 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.
