IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
INSTRUCTIONS PERTAINING TO
A RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK
OR INJURY TO PERSONS
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS!
!
WARNING: Risk of personal injury. Do not permit children to use this unit without adult supervision.
!
WARNING: Risk of personal injury. Do not operate this unit without the guard over the suction fitting.
!
WARNING: Risk of electric shock. Do not permit electrical appliances (hair dryer, telephone, radio, etc.) within
60 inches (1524mm) of this unit.
!
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 unit 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 bathtub 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 bathtub.
Never drop or insert any object into any opening.
Use this unit only for its intended use as described in this manual. Do not use any attachments not recommended by
American Standard.
The unit must be connected only to a supply circuit that is properly protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter
(GFCI). Such a 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 interrupts power to the bathtub without the test button
being pushed, a ground current is flowing, indicating the possibility of an electric shock. Do not use this hydromassage
bathtub. Disconnect the hydromassage bathtub and 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, connect 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.

General Installation Information
Carefully uncrate and inspect your new bath for any shipping damage. If such damage is found, report it to your
vendor immediately. After inspection and during installation, protect the bath from construction damage. Before
installation, and before enclosing with wallboard, tile, etc., the bath must be filled with water and operated to
check for leaks that may have resulted from shipping damage or mishandling! Do not make modifications to the
whirlpool system or remove pump from factory mounting. This could adversely affect the safety and performance of
the whirlpool and void the warranty. Do not handle or move the whirlpool by the pump, motor, or piping system.
Fittings (bath filler, shower arm, etc.) are not provided with the bath and must be ordered separately. Framing and
enclosing materials are provided by others.
For electrical requirements, refer to section titled “Whirlpool Electrical Installation Instructions”.
Check for availability of optional American Standard wall tiling bead (required for recess installation).
Protect all finished surfaces of the whirlpool during construction and installation using a drop cloth.
!
WARNING: Do not lift whirlpool by the piping harness at any time.

INSTALLATION AND FRAMING INSTRUCTIONS
The variety of installations possible for this whirlpool may require framing procedures other than those shown. Locate studs as needed. Ensure
roughing-in dimensions are proper, plumb and square. Provisions must be made in all installations for an access opening for servicing the pump
and controls. It is strongly recommended that an additional opening be provided for access to the drain components. The apron should not be used
as the primary access opening.
1. Position the whirlpool into the installation opening and level the deck in both directions, shimming the integral support feet IF necessary.
Mark the final position of the underside of the deck by tracing a line on to the studs (see Figure 1).
2. Remove the whirlpool and attach a 1 x 4 stringer to the studs, with the top of the stringer touching the traced line.
!
The rim of the bath must not support weight.
FIGURE 1
3. Install drain components to the whirlpool following the drain installation instructions. Before
replacing your whirlpool for final installation, be certain that an opening has been provided in
the sub-floor for the drain. See the roughing-in drawing and Table 1 for suggested opening
size (shadowed) and location dimensions. The drain/overflow of the bath extends below the
bottom of the bath. Note that this requires a cutout in the floor.
!
TYPICAL INSTALLATION
The floor structure beneath the bath must be able to support a total weight of bath, water, and
bather. Refer to Table 1 under total weight for your model.
For Models: 2425L/V-LHO and 2425L/V-RHO, 2732L;
This bath must be supported along its entire bottom. Use mortar as bedding
material (do not use sand or foam). Apply enough mortar to support the complete
bottom of the bath. After the mortar has been poured, and before it sets, position
whirlpool or bath within recess until the rim is leveled against the leveling stringers (see
"Typical Recess Installation") shown below.
!
C
The rim of the bath must not support weight. Allow the mortar material to completely
harden before applying weight to the rim or bottom of the bath. Any finish material such
as tile or wall board must be self-supporting if it contacts the deck of the bath.

WARNING: Prior to operation, review the Important Safety Instructions
listed at the beginning of this instruction manual.
Once the heater is installed and the whirlpool pump is operating, the heater is
totally automatic. The heater will help maintain the temperature of the water in
the bath.
E-Z INSTALL™ HEATER

HEATER “ON” LIGHT
Pressure Switch
FACTORY INSTALLED - NOT FOR RESALE
The heater is equipped with a preset pressure switch. The pump must be
running with water flowing in the whirlpool to allow the heater to turn on.
HEATER P/N: 753174-100
Bonding Lug on
Heater Housing
Indicator Light
This light turns on whenever the heater is operating.
High-Limit Switch
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 off
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.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
Install a separate 120VAC / 15AMP dedicated circuit with GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) protection.
At initial start-up with power ON, push the GFCI test button. The reset button should pop out. Push this button in to reset. If the GFCI fails to
operate in this manner, there is a ground fault or malfunction, indicating the possibility of electrical shock. Turn off the power and do not
use the bath until the source of the problem has been identified and corrected.
1. Route two separate branch circuits to the junction box near the whirlpool as shown in Figure 2. Each branch circuit MUST BE GFCI
PROTECTED and must use copper conductors only.
2. Ensure the heater and pump are properly GROUNDED and BONDED as required. Attach the 8 AWG solid copper conductor supplied with
the heater from the heater bonding lug to the motor frame bonding lug as shown in Figure 3. The conductor is secured to the lugs using set
screws. The motor frame shall have a second 8 AWG solid copper conductor connected from the frame bonding lug to the homes electrical
panel or approved local bonding point as shown in Figure 3.

DRAIN CONNECTION AND SYSTEM TEST
Using recommended drain assembly, connect whirlpool drain to waste line in accordance with the drain assembly instructions.
Tighten all drain joints securely. Check the pump couplings and make sure they are hand-tight. Clean the whirlpool and fill with
water to a point 2" above the top of the highest jet. Recheck the pump couplings and make certain that they are not leaking.
(Although the pump couplings are factory tightened and inspected, some loosening may have occurred during transit.) Make sure
the whirlpool is connected to the electrical supply and turn the whirlpool on. Check for leaks around all piping connections while the
whirlpool is running.
POST INSTALLATION CLEAN-UP
Remove all construction debris from bath. Tile grout can be removed with a wooden popsicle stick or tongue depressor. Do not use
wire brushes or any other metal implement on bath surface.
Post installation clean-up generally can be completed using warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent. Stubborn dirt or stains
may be removed using granular Spic and Span® mixed with water.
Painter's naphtha can be used to remove excess adhesives and/or wet oil-base paint.
AFTERCARE and CLEANING
• The high gloss surface is resistant to impact and chemicals and will retain its lasting luster with proper care and
maintenance.
• Always fill the tub with temperate water. Excessively hot water 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 use Lestoil, Lysol Disinfectant (spray or
concentrate), or Lysol Basin, Tub and Tile Cleaner, Windex, Mr. Clean, Dow Disinfectant Bathroom Cleaner, or
cleaning products in aerosol cans.
HARSH CHEMICALS SHOULD NEVER BE USED ON ACRYLIC SURFACES.
• Do not use wire brushes, knives or sharp objects to remove stains, cigarette tar deposits,or other surface blemishes.
• Abrasive cleaners or powders must not be used, since they will dull the surface. If the glossy surface looses
its sheen, dulled areas can be restored by rubbing with a white "automotive type" polishing compound and
waxing with a "liquid wax."
• Do not wax areas 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.
• Burning cigarettes will damage the surface.
• Should damage to the fixture occur, repairs can be made quickly and easily.
Your distributor or builder can provide details.
• Do not permit drain cleaner to enter the circulation system.
CIRCULATION SYSTEM CLEANING-PURGING PROCEDURES
STEP 1. Once every month purge and clean the circulating system. Fill whirlpool with warm water and add two teaspoons
of dishwasher detergent and one-half cup of house hold bleach.
STEP 2. Activate whirlpool system in accordance with operating instructions or two minutes.
STEP 3. Drain and refill whirlpool with cool water and circulate for additional five minutes.
STEP 4. Drain whirlpool completely.
