damaged while in use. Avoid positioning the cord in the traffic lane and it is always kept out of the way.
Take this furnishing out of service immediately if the cord or plug becomes damaged in any way.
Do not attempt to repair. All repairs must be performed by an authorized service representative.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS / GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING - When using electrical products, basic precautions should always
be followed, including the following:
1. DANGER: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK. Connect only to a circuit protected
by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter.
2. Grounding is required. The unit should be installed by a qualified service
representative and grounded.
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches a level several degrees above
the body temperature of 98.6°F or 37°C. The symptoms of hyperthermia include an increase in the internal
temperature of the body, dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness, and fainting. The effects of hyperthermia include:
a) Failure to perceive heat,
b) Failure to recognize the need to exit the hydromassage bathtub,
c) Unawareness of impending hazard,
d) Fetal damage in pregnant women,
e) Physical inability to exit the hydromassage bathtub, and
f) Unconciousness resulting in the danger of drowning. WARNING - The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication
can greatly increase the risk of fatal hyperthermia.
This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides
a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product
is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding connector can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the product is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the product - if it will not fit the outlet,
have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
WARNING - RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK - Do not permit electric appliances (such as hair dryers,
lamp, telephone, radio, or television) to be within 5 ft (1.5m) of this unit.
WARNING - RISK OF INJURY - Exercise care when using a foot bath. Use this product for its intended
purpose: a manicure chair and fill and drain indoor commercial appliance for foot and ankle hydro massage.
DO NOT use attachments not recommended by manufacturer.
WARNING - MOVABLE PARTS, RISK OF INJURY:
•
Keep children away from adjustable seat armrests, tilt back, and seat slide, and footrest.
WARNING - To reduce the risk of burns, fire, electric shock, or injury to persons:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Unplug from outlet before putting on or taking off parts.
Close supervision is necessary when this furnishing is used by, or near children, invalids, or disabled
persons. DO NOT leave children alone or allow them to operate the controls. Keep controls out of reach
of children. DO NOT allow children to crawl behind the chair.
Never use this furnishing if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, if it has been
dropped or damaged, or dropped into water. Return the furnishing to a service center for examination
and repair.
Keep the cord away from heated surfaces.
Never operate the furnishing with the air openings blocked. Keep the air openings free of lint, hair, etc.
Never drop or insert any object into any opening.

Electrical Service
Option 2 - Plumbed to a Floor Sink
110V/60 Hz or 220V/50 Hz GFCI protected grounded circuit must be used to supply power to
the Contour. Cutting off the end of the electrical plug to hardwire the spa is NOT recommended,
and can void the warranty. (See page 3 for grounding instructions/safety warnings.)
Use this option if your hot and cold water supply and drain line will be located in a floor
sink underneath the Contour. For this option, there are several added steps to make the
connections:
1. The outer shroud will need to be removed (see instructions on page 13).
2. A licensed plumber will need to disconnect the internal connections from the manifold and
re-route the pipes as needed.
3. The power cord will need to be released from the strain relief to be plugged into the floor
outlet (if needed).
IMPORTANT: The diagram below shows where the floor sink can be located in RED.
Plumbing/Water Supply
•
All plumbing connections, including the drain, must conform to all state and local codes.
•
Maximum suggested operating temperature should not exceed 105°F (41°C), and the
•
Carefully connect the water supply fittings. Shut-off valves are recommended.
maximum suggested supply water temperature should not exceed 120°F (49°C). State and local
codes may have different regulations - please follow codes if different from suggested temperatures.
Use this option if your hot and cold water supply and drain line will be coming from the wall,
behind the Contour. For this option, all the internal plumbing connections have already been
made for you. All the plumber will need to do is connect the hot water supply line, cold water
supply line, and the drain line to the rear manifold.

Drain Specification
If your drain and supply line location(s) do not allow you to use the rear manifold, a licensed
plumber will need to perform any needed re-configuration. For reference, see the below
measurements of the Contour drain.

Option 3 - Plumbed to the Floor
Use this option if your hot and cold water supply and drain line will be located in the
floor underneath the Contour. For this option, there are several added steps to make the
connections:
1. The outer shroud will need to be removed (see instructions on page 13).
2. A licensed plumber will need to disconnect the internal connections from the manifold
and re-route the lines as needed. A 90 degree stop valve will be needed for the hot/cold
supply lines, and a 90 degree elbow will be needed for the drain line. Flexible hoses are highly
recommended for this application.
3. The power cord will need to be released from the strain relief to be plugged into the floor
outlet (if needed).
IMPORTANT: The diagram below shows where the connections can be located in RED.

Backflow Prevention
Backflow Prevention
Each Contour comes with a dual backflow preventative device pre-installed. This
device utilizes two (2) 15mm check valves that are certified to ANSI/NSF 61 and
ASME A112.18.3 (see detailed specification from manufacturer on the next page)
The ASME A112.18.3 standard, in Section 8.1.1, indicates that “there shall be at
least two backflow prevention devices, in series”. The double check valve shown
below, installed on the tub supply valve, fulfills this requirement. The 2 check
valves are installed in series and operate independently, per the standard.The
placement prevents backflow into both the hot and cold supply lines.

Does the Contour have backflow prevention?
Yes - see pages 10-11 for backflow prevention details.
Do I still have to install backflow prevention on my main water supply line?
This is entirely dependent on your local and/or state codes. A licensed plumber with knowledge of
your local and/or state codes can answer this question for you.
Do we need to install a p-trap?
Check with the licensed plumber performing the install. It is dependent on your drain location.
Can you provide a letter to my city inspector stating my electrical and/or plumbing setup is
acceptable?
Unfortunately not. In this document, we have provided all the information that a licensed plumber
and electrician would need to perform the proper install that adheres to local and state codes. Living
Earth Crafts does not have knowledge of all local and state codes and therefore is not qualified to
advise on individual setup questions. If an inspector has questions about how your plumbing and/
or electrical is being set up, you will need to contact your plumber and/or electrician.
