IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
ATTENTION INSTALLER: INSTRUCTIONS PERTAINING TO RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC
SHOCK OR INJURY TO PERSONS
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: When using this unit, always follow basic precautions, including the following:
A pressure wire connector marked ground is provided
within the terminal compartment. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, connect this connector to the grounding
terminal of your electric service or supply panel with a
continuous green insulated copper wire equivalent in
size to the circuit conductors supplying this equipment,
but no smaller than No. 12 AWG (3.3 mm2).
DANGER: RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK.
The installation must have Class A GroundFault Circuit-Interrupters (GFCI), one for the
whirlpool system and one for the heater (if
used).
This will provide additional
line-to-ground shock hazard.
protection
against
A pressure wire connector is provided on the exterior of
the control box within this unit to permit connection of a
No. 8 AWG (8.4 mm2) 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.
Such a GFCI should be provided by the installer and
should be tested on a routine basis.
To test the GFCI, press the test button. The GFCI should
interrupt power. Press the reset button. Power should be
restored.
If the GFCI fails to operate in this manner, there is a
ground current flowing or the GFCI is defective. The
possibility of an electric shock may exist. DO NOT use
this unit. Disconnect the unit and have the problem
corrected by a qualified licensed electrician.
DO NOT operate this unit without the guard on the
suction fitting.
Use this unit only for its intended use as denoted in this
manual. DO NOT use attachments not recommended
by the Kohler Co.
Never drop or insert any object into any opening.
DANGER: To reduce the risk of injury, do not
permit children to use this unit unless they are
closely supervised at all times.
WARNING: For heater models, do not adjust
the heater thermostat while wet.

Product Requirements.
NOTICE: Follow all local plumbing and electrical
codes.
WARNING: Unauthorized modification may
cause unsafe operation and poor performance
of the whirlpool. Do not relocate the whirlpool
pump or make other modifications to the whirlpool
system, as this could adversely affect the
performance and safe operation of the whirlpool.
Kohler Co. shall not be liable under its warranty or
otherwise for personal injury or damage caused by
any such unauthorized modification.
The optional heater, when wired with 120 V/15 A, will
maintain the water temperature. When wired with
240 V/30 A, the water temperature can be raised
several degrees Fahrenheit in a 20-minute cycle. This
temperature rise is based on laboratory conditions.
Actual temperatures may vary in your installation. The
maximum temperature limit is 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

S Install unit to level subfloor.
If using a rim mounted bath faucet, flexible connections
between the valves and spout may be required. Confirm
adequate mounting and connection space of specified
faucet for your installation.
S Provide properly dimensioned framing.
S Bath can be installed in a corner. Recess, peninsular or sunken installation is also possible.
Confirm adequate support for faucet; large faucets that
may be inadvertently used as a means of support are not
appropriate or safe for this installation.
C. PRODUCT INSPECTION
D. CONNECTIONS AND SERVICE ACCESS
Carefully uncrate and inspect your product for damage.
Leave all materials in carton during construction to
prevent damage.
Before installation, ensure proper access to the final
connections.
NOTICE: Provide unrestricted service access to
the pump and heater. One access panel is required for
servicing the pump and heater. Kohler Co. recommends
an additional access panel (see Roughing-In section

C. STUD POCKET PREPARATION
Construct a recess designed for your particular
installation. Framing is of 2 x 4 construction. When
constructing framing, allow for thickness of sub and
finished wall materials.
If an apron wall without a ledge is desired, the finished
apron wall surface must be 1/32” under the bath rim.
Bath can be installed in a corner. Recess, peninsular or
sunken installation is also possible. Possible studding
arrangements are illustrated in 1. through 4. below;
modifications may be needed for other types of
construction.

A. TILING-IN BEAD INSTALLATION
Before setting bath, an optional tiling-in bead is
recommended to be applied to whatever side of the bath
contacts the wall. Refer to Ordering Information located
in Roughing-In section beginning on page 4. This bead
prevents water from seeping between the bath and the
wall. Install this bead now. Refer to Installation
Instructions packed with the tiling-in bead.

8. INSTALL WHIRLPOOL
A. WHIRLPOOL SET-IN
Choose one of the three recommended options below
that is best for your particular installation as described in
1., 2., or 3. Follow the appropriate instructions.
If subfloor is not level, some shimming of the bath and
pump will be necessary. See 8.B. for height adjustment.
1.
Install Using Gypsum: Place a 2” thick layer of
gypsum cement (such as Gyp-Crete 2000) on the
floor where the whirlpool is to be set. This will help
secure, level and support the bath. Set bath into
position. Clear any excess cement from vicinity of
the pump.
NOTE: Pump bracket must sit flat on the floor.
Insert tailpiece into trap. Make sure bath is level
and resting on all supporting blocks.
2.
Whirlpool
Blocks
Install Using 1 x 2 Strips: Set whirlpool in desired
location and level. Nail 1 x 2 wood strips around
blocks under the whirlpool to firmly hold it in
position. It is not necessary to use strips on all
blocks. They are only needed on blocks that are to
the outside edges of your installation.
Insert tailpiece into trap. Make sure bath is level and
resting on all supporting blocks.

B. HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
NOTICE: Steps B. and C. are necessary for making
your Kohler Whirlpool operate more quietly.
Drainage
If the subfloor is level, no adjustment is necessary;
proceed to Step C. If the subfloor is not level, shim
beneath pump bracket (plywood is recommended). Do
not change the elevation of the pump relative to the
whirlpool bath since this may affect performance. Use
a 5” x 7” (minimum) piece of plywood.

subfloor. Predrilling is recommended.
Spacer
Plywood
(if required)
CAUTION: Risk of product damage. Do not
use the piping or pump for structural support or

Stubborn stains, paint, or tar can be removed with
turpentine or paint thinner. Do not allow cleaners
containing petroleum distillates to remain in
contact with whirlpool surfaces for long periods of
time. Plaster can be removed by scraping with a wood
edge. Do not use metal scrapers, wire brushes, or other
metal tools. One of the powder-type detergents may be
used on a damp cloth to provide mild abrasive action to
the residual plaster.
