IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS!
!
WARNING: Risk of personal injury. Do not permit children to use this whirlpool tub without adult supervision.
!
WARNING: Risk of personal injury. Do not operate this whirlpool tub without the guard over the suction fitting.
!
WARNING: Risk of electric shock. Do not permit electrical appliances near any whirlpool when whirlpool
contains water.
!
WARNING: Risk of hyperthermia and possible drowning. People using medications and/or having adverse medical
history should consult a physician before using this product.
!
WARNING: Risk of personal injury. Do not overfill whirlpool tub before entering. Entering tub when filled more than 2/3 can
cause overflow and slippery conditions. Exercise caution when entering and exiting.
!
WARNING: No Food or Alcoholic Beverages. Use of your whirlpool immediately after meals is not recommended. Avoid
alcohol consumption before or during bathing. Alcoholic beverages can cause drowsiness or hyperthermia resulting in loss of
consciousness or even drowning.
!
WARNING: Pregnancy. If you are or think you may be pregnant, consult your physician before using the whirlpool or heater
function of this tub.
!
WARNING: No Small Objects. Keep small objects (soap fragments, hair clips, earrings, bottle caps) away from the whirlpool.
They may be drawn into the circulation system and cause it to malfunction.
Do not drop or insert any object into any whirlpool opening.
Use this whirlpool only for its intended use as described in this manual.
IMPORTANT: The unit must be connected only to a supply circuit that is properly protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter
(GFCI). GFCI should be provided by the installer and should be tested on a routine basis. To test the GFCI, push the test button.
The GFCI should interrupt power. Push the reset button. Power should be restored. If the GFCI fails to operate in this manner, the
GFCI is defective. If the GFCI does not interrupt power to the bathtub when the test button is being pushed, a ground current is
flowing, indicating the possibility of an electric shock. Do not use this hydromassage bathtub. In this case, have the problem
corrected by a licensed electrician before using.
A pressure wire connector is provided on the exterior of the motor unit to permit connection of a no. 8 AWG solid copper bonding
conductor between this unit and all other electrical equipment and exposed metal in the vicinity, as needed to comply with local
requirements. To reduce the risk of an electric shock, attach this connector to the grounding terminal of your electric service or
supply panel with a conductor equivalent in size to the circuit conductors supplying this unit.

OPTIONAL IN-LINE EZ-INSTALL™ HEATER OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS:
Your whirlpool is equipped for use with the optional EZ-Install Heater Whirlpool Bath Heater, part no. 9075.120. Simply
locate the EZ-Install Heater Removable Blank near the whirlpool pump and replace it with the heater. Be sure to
FOLLOW ALL OPERATING, INSTALLATION, and SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH YOUR EZ-INSTALL
HEATER CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE INSTALLATION. The heater will maintain the temperature
of the water in the whirlpool, or increase the temperature of the water in the whirlpool at about two to four degrees
Fahrenheit per hour up to a maximum of 104˚F. The heater includes the following components:
Thermostat:
The "Smart Thermostat" requires no adjustment and will automatically maintain the water temperature at 104° Fahrenheit.
If the bathtub is too warm, simply adjust by adding cold water. See Important Safety Instructions supplied with heater.
High Limit:
The heater includes an exclusive “Intelligent High-Limit”. This safety circuit will not “false trip” from hot tap water. It will only
turn the heater of if the thermostat fails. If the high-limit trips frequently, call a service technician.
To manually reset the circuit in the event that the “High-Limit” switch has been activated, simply:
(1) Turn off the whirlpool pump
(2) Drain water from the tub
(3) Remove power from heater by unplugging at receptacle or turning off circuit breaker
(4) The heater circuit will automatically reset in less than 15 minutes
(5) Restore power to the heater
(6) Whirlpool bath is now ready to use.
Indicator Light:
The light turns on when the heater is operating.
Pressure Switch:
The heater is equipped with a preset pressure switch. This switch will not allow the heater to turn on if the pump is not
running with water flowing through the whirlpool piping system.

Your American Standard whirlpool is designed to give you many years of pleasure with reasonable care and
maintenance.
Your new acrylic bathtub is tough, durable and easy to care for. The colors have been formulated to match other
American Standard fixtures and enhance your choice of bathroom decorations. The high gloss surface will retain its
lasting luster with proper care and maintenance.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE:
• Always fill the tub with temperate water. Excessively hot water (greater than 130˚ F) may cause surface damage.
• Remove bath mat after use and hang to dry. Allowing bath mat to dry in the tub may cause surface damage.
• Clean after use with a mild liquid household detergent cleaner. Do not turn on jets when such cleaners are present.
Do not use: Lestoil® Cleaner; Lysol® Disinfectant (spray or concentrate); or Lysol® Basin, Tub and Tile Cleaner;
Windex® Cleaner; Mr. Clean® Cleaner; Dow® Disinfectant Bathroom Cleaner*; or other cleaning products in
aerosol cans.
HARSH CHEMICALS, SHARP AND ABRASIVE OBJECTS SHOULD NEVER BE USED ON ACRYLIC SURFACES:
• Do not use wire brushes, knives or sharp objects to remove stains or other surface blemishes.
• Use of abrasive cleaners or powders will dull the surface. If the glossy surface looses its sheen, dulled areas can
be partially restored by rubbing with a white automotive body polishing compound and waxing with a liquid wax.
Do not wax surfaces where you walk or stand.
• Do not allow nail polish remover, acetone, dry-cleaning fluid, paint remover, or other solvents to come into
contact with the surface.
• Clean the surrounding surface immediately after using caustic drain cleaners.
Do not permit drain cleaner to enter circulation system.
• Burning cigarettes will irreparably damage the surface of the whirlpool.
CLEANING/PURGING THE CIRCULATION SYSTEM:
Once every month the circulating system must be purged and cleaned. Follow the steps outlined below:
1. Fill whirlpool with warm water and add two teaspoons of powdered automatic dishwasher (not laundry)
detergent and one-half cup of household bleach to filled whirlpool.
2. Activate whirlpool system in accordance with operating instructions and run system for two minutes.
3. Drain and refill whirlpool with cold water. Circulate for five minutes.
4. Drain whirlpool completely after step 3 (above) is completed.
