IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Before taking your first whirlpool bath, be sure you have performed the “test run.” [See OPERATION
INSTRUCTIONS on page 16.] Be sure that you are familiar with all the controls and switches and that the unit is
operating properly.
1.The water in a whirlpool should never exceed 40º C (104º F). Water temperature between 38º C (100º F) and
40º C (104º F) are considered safe for a healthy adult. Bathing time should be limited to approximately 30 minutes,
followed by a shower to cool down. Longer exposure may result in hyperthermia. The symptoms of this condition are
nausea, dizziness and fainting, which can be fatal. Lower water temperatures are recommended for extended use
(exceeding 10-15 minutes) and for young children.
2.If you will not be operating the whirlpool system during your bath, you may fill the bathtub to any comfortable level.
However, if you will operate the system, you must fill the bathtub as described in the section entitled OPERATION
INSTRUCTIONS on page 16. This will assure proper operation of the system and keep the jets from spraying water
outside the bathtub.
3.A few important bathing “DONT’S” DO NOT operate the whirlpool system if:
• The bathtub isn’t filled to required levels above jets.
• You’re pregnant (until you’ve consulted your doctor).
• You’re taking medications or drugs that may make you drowsy.
• You’re drinking any form of alcohol.
• You’ve just had a meal. Wait for 30 minutes after eating.
• There is a child in the bathtub who may be left unattended at any time. Never allow small children to remain
unattended in any bathtub.
• There are any small objects in the bathtub. The jet action can move small objects at high speeds, causing
possible injury.
• The safety suction cover is not in place. The suction cover is the large fitting with a pattern of holes on its face,
mounted on the bathtub’s side wall. See Figure 1.
• You’re smoking. The heat of burning tobacco can damage the bathtub surface. Keep tobacco products and
ashtrays away from the bathtub.
• You have problems with your immunity system (until you have consulted your doctor).
• Never operate electrical appliances (television, hair dryer, radio, telephone, etc.) inside or within five feet (5') of
the bath.
• You are using additional attachments and/or equipment not
recommended by the manufacturer.
• You have a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure,
circulatory system problems, or diabetes, consult with a physician before
using a whirlpool.
• You are under the influence of drugs, anticoagulants, stimulants,
antihistamines, vasoconstrictors, vasodilators, hypnotics, narcotics, or
tranquilizers.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING - When using electrical products, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
DANGER - RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK. Connect only to a circuit protected by a Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupter (GFCI).
(For built-in and custom units.) Install to permit access for servicing.
1. Install outlet(s) as shown. The outlet must be a minimum of 6" above the floor and be accessible through
the access panel. [See ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS on page 15.]
2. Place the bath in the location for installation. Check that the bath is level
(length and width). A carpenter’s level is recommended. If necessary, place
shims under support legs. Make measurements for framework construction.
Remove bath from location.
3. Construct framework.
• Ensure that construction and construction materials comply
with applicable code requirements for the installation site.
• All framing must be square, level and designed to provide
structural support.
WARNING
Installation Recommendation
Use two or more people to move
and install jetted bath. Failure to do
so can result in back or other injury.
• Do not allow tub rim to support any of the bath weight.
4. An access panel, 14" x 18" minimum, must be provided to allow access to the pump, electrical connections, and
other accessories.
5. ALL MODELS WITH LEVELING FEET - The following procedure is recommended for pre-leveled bottoms. Lift unit by
the rim and place in alcove or framework. If necessary, shim feet until unit just rests on leveled ledges or framework.
Secure the unit by fastening the bottom feet to the subfloor with any construction adhesive. The use of casting plaster
or plaster of paris is suggested but not mandatory as a foundation support between floor and bottom of unit to
suppress noise and give a solid and stable feel for the user.
6. WHIRLPOOL & SOAKING TUB MODELS WITHOUT LEVELING FEET - (Including island or self rimming units) Just
before placing unit in alcove or framework, spread a bed of casting plaster or plaster of paris on the floor or subfloor.
Limit the size of bed to dimensions of bottom. Lift unit by the rim and place in alcove or framework. Press down until
the tub perimeter rim just rests securely on top of the ledge or framework on all sides. This step is mandatory to prevent
shifting after installation and for proper operation, drainage and weight distribution. Use a carpenter’s level to check
that the unit is level.
7. The rim of the bath is not designed to support weight. If finished material is to overlap or contact the bath, the added
weight must be fully self-supporting.
8. Most (not all) Aquatic integrally skirted whirlpools have color matching removable panels for alcove and corner
installations. All integrally skirted units MUST BE INSTALLED BEFORE the finished floor and wall materials are installed.
To remove skirt panel: Simply pry loose at the top corners and pull outward (away from frame).
To reinstall skirt panel: Simply set panel in frame (bottom side first) and push forward. Lightly depress the tabs on
the top of the panel while pushing forward until the panel snaps into its frame.

OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
Aquatic15
DuraCore Whirlpool Bath Owner's Manual & Installation Guide
YOUR WHIRLPOOL BATHTUB — WHAT IT IS AND HOW IT WORKS.
Your whirlpool bathtub is a large, extra deep bathtub with a built-in circulating system that mixes the bath water with
air and pumps the mixture back into the bathtub creating the hydromassage action. Because it is a bathtub it must
be drained after each use.
The circulating system mixes air and water and must never be operated unless the bathtub is filled as described below.
BEFORE YOUR FIRST USE
The professionals who installed your whirlpool bathtub received detailed installation procedures, some of which you
need to know about before filling and operating your bathtub for the first time.
1. Make sure bathtub is clean - If there are any residues or foreign materials left from construction, clean the bathtub
thoroughly. Use only the methods and materials described in the section entitled MAINTENANCE AND CARE on
page 17.
2. Fill bathtub above jets - For your first “test run,” fill the bathtub until the water is at least 3" (75) above the highest jet.
Never operate the whirlpool unless water is at least this high.
3. Optional remote power switch - A separate switch on your bathroom wall may control power to the whirlpool
bathtub. For your safety, it should not be within reach of a person standing in the bathtub and it should be high
enough to be out of reach of small children. Please refer to and abide by all state and local plumbing and
electrical codes.
Starting the whirlpool system: If installed, set remote power switch to ON.
1. On/off button - Models, so equipped, will have a button mounted on the bathtub. Pushing the button forces a column
of air to a control which turns the pump motor on or off.
2. Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupter (GFCI) - Test the GFCI as described in the section IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS on page 6. This extra safety device is mounted either at the remote power switch or in you home’s
electrical panel. 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, there is a ground current flowing, indicating the possibility that
a lethal electric shock can occur. Do not use this product until the problem is corrected by a licensed electrician.
3. Directional jet nozzles - You can adjust the jets position to concentrate the whirlpool action against a specific part of
the body.

DuraCore Whirlpool Bath Owner's Manual & Installation Guide
MAINTENANCE AND CARE
TUB CARE
• Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupter (GFCI): This device must be tested on a routine basis. [See IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS on page 6.]
Cleaning Your Whirlpool Bathtub
IMPORTANT: Use only the recommended cleaners and procedures described in this section. Use of other materials and
methods may harm your whirlpool and will VOID THE WARRANTY.
Failure to perform periodic maintenance procedures may cause problems and may harm the bathtub, the circulating
system and pump, and will VOID THE WARRANTY.
• Monthly Purge: The whirlpool system must be purged at least once a month.
To remove accumulations of bath residue from the whirlpool system, we recommend that you purge it at least once
a month, or more depending upon usage. To do this, follow this simple procedure:
1. Fill the bath with hot water (not exceeding 140°F).
2. Add to the hot water, 4-6 tablespoons of low foaming detergent such as liquid Cascade®* and 24-48 oz. of
liquid household bleach, (use lesser amounts shown for 5-foot bathtubs, greater amounts for larger bathtubs).
3. Run the whirlpool for 5 to 10 minutes.
4. Drain the bath completely and refill with cold water only.
5. Run the whirlpool for 5 to 10 minutes, then drain the bath completely. Depending on the usage and/or the
content of the local water supply, more frequent purging may be necessary.
If you have followed the monthly purging instructions and still have an excess accumulation of bath residue and
desire an alternative cleaning mechanism, we recommend SUPER SYSTEMS CLEAN PLUS manufactured by
Stearns Packaging Corporation to rectify this condition. This may be obtained by contacting Aquatic at (800)
945-2726. It is recommended that you follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer with the product.
Repeated use may be necessary. SUPER SYSTEMS CLEAN PLUS does not replace necessity to purge your
whirlpool system at least monthly with a low foaming detergent and bleach.
*Note: See page 18 for trademark information.
17Aquatic
DuraCore Whirlpool Bath Owner's Manual & Installation Guide
Cleaning Procedures
The surface of your whirlpool bathtub will retain its color and gloss indefinitely with normal use, but many bathroom
cleaning agents can harm it. Read and follow the cleaning and maintenance instructions in this manual.
• To keep your Aquatic unit sparkling clean: Apply a coat of good quality automotive paste wax and buff to a high
shine with a soft cloth or bath towel. Repeat every six months for easier cleaning and long lasting protection.
NOTE: Do not wax textured standing/walking surfaces.
• For normal cleaning, any non-abrasive liquid cleaner off the shelf may be used. Be sure to read the label and
follow the cleanser’s recommendations. Do not use harsh abrasives as they will harm and dull the finish of your
unit. Instead, use warm water and liquid detergents, especially those bathroom cleaners recommended for
cleaning fiberglass surfaces, such as Mr. Clean®* All-Purpose, Lysol®* Bathroom, chlorine bleach,
Easy-Off®* Mildew stain remover, or Liquid Spic-N-Span®* and the like.
• For more difficult stains on your anti-skid floor, a paste should be made of a cleanser such as Comet®*,
Spic-N-Span®*, etc. and spread out onto the floor. Allow the paste to sit for 5-10 minutes and then gently scrub
with a soft-bristled brush. To prevent scratches, the brush should be no rougher than the texture of a toothbrush.
• For hard water stains, calcium deposits, limescale or difficult soap scum after repeated attempts with the above
suggestions, you may try Lime-Away®* or white vinegar for removal of calcium or lime deposits. For soap scum,
general black grime or algae, chlorine bleach may be used with moderate scrubbing. In both instances the unit
should be rinsed carefully with cold water. Scrubbing is never recommended as it could damage the finish on your
floor. Always rinse off all remaining paste.
• To restore a scratched or dull unit: Use an automotive polishing compound applied with a clean cotton rag. Rub
scratches and dull areas vigorously. Wipe off residues. Follow with automotive wax treatment described above.
• To remove adhesive: Try 3-M™* Natural Cleaner, or rubbing alcohol and rub vigorously until the adhesive
dissolves and disappears. These solvents are highly flammable and must be used sparingly and with caution. Do
not smoke or permit others to do so. Make sure all nearby heating devices (including pilot lights) are extinguished.
Do not allow solvent to go down the drain. Make sure not to contact plastic drain grates or other synthetic
materials.
CAUTION: When using any cleaning or polishing materials, make sure to read and follow all package instructions carefully. Wear rubber gloves at all times and avoid contact with eyes, skin, clothing, rugs and furnishings. Make sure all
residues are rinsed off thoroughly.
Rubber mats: If you use a rubber or plastic “anti-skid” mat, make sure to remove it from the unit after each shower to
avoid harm to the surface finish.
Hard Water: Water in certain areas, if not wiped up after bathing/showering, may cause fading of some bath fixture
colors. This is a natural occurrence beyond Aquatic’s control. [See AQUATIC LIMITED WARRANTY on page 25.]

WATER QUALITY
CHEMICAL & WATER QUALITY
Owners of fill and drain whirlpool bathtubs need to know basic information concerning water quality, how it affects
the performance and enjoyment of the operation of their tubs, and steps that can be taken by the owner to correct
related problems. Important issues are the microbiological and chemical quality of the water.
1. Microbiological Quality
Microbes are present in water supplied by individual wells or water systems and even in the air around us. These
microbes are usually in amounts below what is noticeable. Microbes from the water or air or from a bather’s body
may settle on wet surfaces such as bathtub surface or piping system where they can grow in numbers. With regards
to whirlpool bathtubs, brown/black fungi/mold or pigmented (colored) bacteria can be noted.
Fungi/Mold - Fungi and mold are always present. Usually the levels are such that we don’t notice them. When
moisture and temperature are sufficient, the organisms will grow to levels that we may smell and/or see. The best
examples of such growth is the very common black growth on the bottom of shower curtains. The best solution to keep
these surfaces free from fungi/mold growth is frequent cleaning.
Pigmented Bacteria - A pinkish substance may appear on bathroom fixtures that is very persistent, appearing in
the shower, sink and along the water line of toilet bowls. The residue is less likely a problem associated with water
quality than with naturally occurring airborne bacteria. The bacteria may produce a pinkish film, and sometimes a
dark gray film, on surfaces that are regularly moist, including toilet bowls, shower heads, sink drains, and tiles. The
problem is more common in humid areas of the country. In any particular case, the determination of the exact species
of bacteria causing the problem would require lengthy and costly laboratory testing; however, most experts believe
the bacteria responsible is Serratia Marcescens. These bacteria thrive on moisture, dust and phosphates, and are
widely distributed in soil, food and also in animals. The best solution to keep these surfaces free from the bacterial film
is continual cleaning. A chlorine containing compound is the best cleaner. Avoid abrasives to limit scratching fixtures,
which will make them even more susceptible to bacteria.
2. Chemical Quality
The water supplied by individual wells or water systems always contains chemicals, usually in amounts below those
which the consumer would notice. Examples of such chemicals, which are of potential concern for the owners of
whirlpool bathtubs, are calcium and magnesium salts, copper, iron, manganese and sulfates. When these chemicals
are present in sufficient amounts, they may cause problems in whirlpool bathtubs. You should contact your water
supply or treatment company and follow their suggestions for treatment.
Calcium and Magnesium Salts - Collectively, the various compounds of calcium and/or magnesium are referred to
as salts. Calcium and magnesium salts are often found in ground water supplies and cause “hardness” in water. Hard
and soft water are relative terms. Hard water retards the cleaning action of soaps and detergents, causing expense
in the form of extra work and cleaning agents. When hard water is heated, it will deposit a hard scale. With regard
to whirlpool bathtubs, high calcium and/or magnesium levels may result in the formation of white stains and scale
formation on the inside of the tubs, especially noticeable with colored tubs. If this occurs, you need to contact the
water supplier to determine the calcium and/or magnesium content and/or corrosion potential of the water and
follow their suggestions for treatment. If your water supply is generated from a well, you need to contact a water
treatment company to test your water and suggest solutions if a problem is present.

WATER QUALITY
Iron - Iron is found in many natural waters especially from wells. Iron in water can also result from the corrosion of
piping in the water supply system, such as cast iron mains or galvanized steel service lines, or galvanized piping in
the home water system. High iron levels may result in the formation of brown stains in the vicinity of the faucet outlets
of various fixtures in the home. With whirlpool bathtubs, the staining may be particularly pronounced because the
aeration action can oxidize iron to a form that settles out on the inside of the tubs, especially noticeable with white
tubs. If high iron in the water is present, you can also notice rust colored deposits inside your toilet tank or dishwasher.
If this occurs, you need to contact the water supplier to determine the iron content and/or corrosion potential of the
water and follow their suggestions for treatment. If your water supply is generated from a well you need to contact the
water treatment company to test your water and suggest solutions if a problem is present.
Manganese - Manganese is found in many natural waters especially from wells. High manganese levels may result
in the formation of small black particles that can stain laundry, especially noticeable with whites such as sheets or
towels. With whirlpool bathtubs, the formation of small black particles may be particularly pronounced because the
aeration action in the tub can oxidize manganese to an insoluble form that is especially noticeable with white tubs. If
high manganese in the water is present, you may also notice black stains on white laundry. If this occurs, you need to
contact the water supplier to determine the manganese content of the water and follow their suggestions for treatment.
If your water supply is generated from a well, you need to contact a water treatment company to test your water and
suggest solutions if a problem is present.
3. Treatment
If you have contacted your water supplier and followed their instructions and you are still having problems, you
need to increase the frequency of cleaning with low-foaming detergent/bleach starting from monthly purging down
to using it every other day as required to eliminate your particular problem. The use of certain bath oils, bubble
bath soaps and bath additives may increase the level of accumulations of bath residue in the whirlpool system.
More frequent cleaning may be necessary if these products are used in the whirlpool tub. If excess accumulations
persist, you should discontinue the use of these products. If you have followed the monthly purging instructions and
still have an excess accumulation of bath residue and desire an alternative cleaning mechanism, we recommend
SUPER SYSTEMS CLEAN PLUS manufactured by Stearns Packaging Corporation to rectify this condition. This may be
obtained by contacting Aquatic at (800) 945-2726. It is recommended that you follow the instructions provided by
the manufacturer with the product. Repeated use may be necessary. SUPER SYSTEMS CLEAN PLUS does not replace
the necessity to purge your whirlpool system at least once a month with a low foaming detergent and bleach.
