Introduction
Thank you for selecting EUROPEAN TOUCH, the leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of
pedicure spas in North America. The Forte’ and Altera pedicure spas (herein referred to as pedicure
spa) are innovative whirlpool pedicure spas that have been designed to serve you dependably for many
years. Please take time to thoroughly read this entire manual before installation and use. If you have
any problems or have questions regarding your pedicure spa, please contact EUROPEAN TOUCH’s
Technical Support Department at 1-800-626-6912, Monday through Friday 8 AM to 5 PM CST. After
hours calls are recorded and attended to the next business day.
Important Requirements
EUROPEAN TOUCH requires that you contact a local, licensed plumber and licensed electrician to
install your new pedicure spa. Installation must be in compliance with all your local and state building
codes. Your pedicure spa cannot operate efficiently or safely unless it is provided with adequate
electrical power, sufficient water pressure, proper water temperature, and required drainage
capabilities. Contact your local building inspector for information and local code compliance
procedures that need to be followed when having your pedicure spa installed. Subsequent inspections
and approvals that may be required are the responsibility of the purchaser. (See limited warranty
regarding incidental or consequential exclusions – page 2).
Precautions
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not stand in the basin of the pedicure spa!
Excessive water temperature is dangerous and should be checked before use.
Maximum operating water temperature should not exceed 105° F (41° C) and the
maximum supply water temperature should not exceed 150° F (66° C).
Always enter and exit the pedicure spa slowly and carefully.
Close side arms rests before operating the chair seat movement.
Never bring or operate any electrical devices into or near the pedicure spa.
This pedicure spa has a weight capacity of 250 pounds (113.4kg).
Health Risk Warning
Individuals whose feet or legs are inflamed or have open wounds should not be allowed to use
the pedicure spa at any time. Nail technicians should advise clients to consult their physician
before using the pedicure spa if there is any sign of fungal infection, swelling, fracture, or
persistent pain. In some cases diabetics may experience improved circulation in their feet, but
should first consult their physician prior to receiving a pedicure. If the client experiences any
pain or discomfort, immediately discontinue the use of the pedicure spa.
Your client’s massage and pedicure spa experience should be pleasant and comfortable.

Pedicure Product Guidelines
Because there are so many different products on the market, it is difficult for us to list all of the pedicure
products that are safe to use in our pedicure spas. However, the following guidelines can be used:
•
•
•
•
•
It is your responsibility to understand and follow your state’s regulations regarding product usage
and disinfecting requirements.
Do not use any products containing a foaming agent; this will cause excessive foam.
It has been determined that products containing non-dissolving abrasives (such as sand and sea
salts) will not harm the internal component structure of your pedicure spa as long as the entire
EUROPEAN TOUCH cleaning requirements are followed without deviation.
Oil based products may be used in your pedicure spa as long as the cleaning requirements are
met.
Always use pedicure products and cleaning solutions in accordance with each manufacturer's
directions.
EUROPEAN TOUCH whirlpool pedicure spas will give you many years of service as long as proper
precautions, precise cleaning, and operating instructions are followed. It is the responsibility of the
pedicure spa owner to properly clean and maintain the pedicure spa.
If you are experiencing problems cleaning your pedicure spa, please contact the manufacturer of your
pedicure products or EUROPEAN TOUCH Technical Support at 800-626-6912.

Crystal Clean™ Pipe-Free® Spa - Operating Instructions
Preparing the Pedicure Spa for Operation:
After the pedicure spa is installed and the plumbing and electrical connections are made, clean and
disinfect the basin before initial use. Rinse the basin by using the attached water sprayer. Wipe the
basin dry with a clean towel.
To Operate the Pedicure Spa, Follow These Easy Steps:
Adding Water to the Pedicure Spa Basin:
1. Close the drain by turning the chrome drain handle counter-clockwise until it stops.
2. Add water to the basin by lifting upward on the water faucet fill handle. Turn the handle in a
counter-clockwise direction for cold water or clockwise for warm water as indicated by the red
(hot) and blue (cold) markings around the handle (CAUTION: hot water can burn skin). Continue
to add water until the fill line is reached. The fill line is indicated by the wavy (~~~~) line in the
basin.
3. Turn the off water by pushing the handle downward and center.
Operating the Crystal Clean™ Pipe-Free® System:
The Crystal Clean™ Pipe-Free® System eliminates pipes and jets that can harbor harmful bacteria while
at the same time delivering a soothing, quality foot massage. This unique system is driven by an
impeller that pulls water through the inlet cover and then forces the water outward through key
massage zones in the footplate. The end result is a soothing massage delivered to all areas of the foot:
front, back and bottom.
To start or stop the whirlpool, depress the On/Off button labeled “Jets” (NOTE: An indicator light on
the “Jets” button flashes when the footplate is improperly installed, or the basin contains no
water. As a result, the whirlpool will not function. To fix, simply check that the footplate is
securely fastened or add water to the basin).
Removing Water from the Pedicure Spa Basin:
First, make certain the whirlpool jets are turned off by turning the On/Off switch counter-clockwise to the
“Off” position.
If the pedicure spa is hooked up directly to a floor drain, simply open the drain by turning the drain
handle in a clockwise direction until it stops. You should see the water level lowering as water exits the
basin.
If the pedicure spa is equipped with the optional Power Drain Pump (PDP) feature, open the drain by
turning the drain handle in a clockwise direction until it stops. Press the button marked “Drain” on the
front panel. The water level will lower as water is pumped out of the basin. Turn the pump off by
pressing the “Drain” button on the front panel once the basin is fully drained (NOTE: the PDP will
automatically shut off after 2-1/2 minutes. We recommend turning off the pump manually if all
water has drained before automatic shut-off. Drain pump may overheat if operated more than
10 minutes in a 45 minutes period).
Warning:
It is extremely important to follow the cleaning instructions located on the following page.
Failure to clean the pedicure spa adequately can result in serious health issues for your clients
as well as the nail technician. Failing to clean your pedicure spa may also cause the pedicure
spa to not work properly. Always consult your local and state codes concerning pedicure chair
cleaning for further requirements.

Crystal Clean™ Pipe-Free® Spa - Cleaning and Disinfecting
Procedures
Always check with your state board for required cleaning and disinfecting procedures.
It is extremely important to clean and disinfect your pedicure spa after each pedicure, after the last pedicure of
the day, and once a week for overnight cleaning. Regular cleaning will help keep your pedicure spa in good
working condition. Proper and continuous cleaning will kill harmful bacteria and germs that can cause infection.
To clean the pedicure spa, follow these easy steps:
After Each Pedicure:
1. Drain water from the pedicure spa by turning the drain handle to the “Open” position.
2. Loosen the footplate by turning the footplate Knobs in a counter-clockwise direction. Remove the
footplate from the basin by lifting upward on the inlet cover. (NOTE: Gently press down on the
footplate center when loosening the footplate Knobs, as this will relieve pressure and help loosen
the Knobs.)
3. Remove all debris from the basin.
4. Clean all the surfaces of the basin and all components, as well as the top and bottom of the footplate and
both Knobs. Use low-sudsing soap or detergent and a non-abrasive brush. Remove all visible residue
from the inside of the basin and all other components. Clean off sensor on bottom of basin.
5. Rinse the basin with clean water using the sprayer.
6. Disinfect all components, surfaces, basin, top and bottom of footplate, and footplate Knobs with an EPAregistered disinfectant, in accordance with your state board requirements. *EPA disinfectants require
ten-minute contact.
7. Rinse the basin again with clean water using the sprayer.
8. Thoroughly dry the basin and all other components with a clean towel.
9. Replace the footplate and secure by simultaneously turning both footplate Knobs in a clockwise direction.
(NOTE: When replacing the footplate, carefully align the mounting studs with the mounting holes.
Tighten each knob until snug. Be careful not to over-tighten, as this can damage the Knobs.)
After Last Pedicure of the Day:
1. Drain water from the pedicure spa by turning the drain handle to the “Open” position.
2. Remove the drain cover as shown on page 21. Remove the impeller as shown on page 21. Remove all

Traditional Whirlpool (With Jets) - Operating Instructions
After the pedicure spa is installed and the plumbing and electrical connections are made, clean and
disinfect the basin before initial use. Rinse the basin by using the attached water sprayer. Wipe the
basin dry with a clean towel.
To Operate the Pedicure Spa, Follow These Easy Steps:
Adding Water to the Pedicure Spa Basin:
1. Close the drain by turning the chrome drain handle counter-clockwise until it stops.
2. Add water to the basin by lifting upward on the water faucet fill handle. Turn the handle in a
counter-clockwise direction for cold water or clockwise for warm water as indicated by the red
(hot) and blue (cold) markings around the handle (CAUTION: hot water can burn skin). Continue
to add water until the fill line is reached. The fill line is indicated by the wavy (~~~~) line in the
basin.
3. Turn the off water by pushing the handle downward and center.
Operating the Water Jets:
Each pedicure spa is equipped with two fully adjustable jets that create a soothing foot massage. To
operate, turn the whirlpool jets on by turning the On/Off Switch in a clockwise direction. To increase jet
strength, open each jet by simply rotating the adjustment cover in a counter-clockwise direction. To
decrease water pressure, close each jet by rotating the adjustment cover in a clockwise direction
(NOTE: The Jet heads should not be positioned directly at the suction cover. Doing so will
create a noisy “gurgling” sound as air is being forced directly into water pipes). Turn off the
whirlpool jets by turning the On/Off switch counter-clockwise to its original starting position.
Removing Water from the Pedicure Spa Basin:
First, make certain the whirlpool jets are off by turning the On/Off Switch counter-clockwise to the “Off”
position.
If the pedicure spa is hooked up directly to a floor drain, simply open the drain by turning the drain
handle in a clockwise direction until it stops. You should see the water level lowering as water exits the
basin.
If the pedicure spa is equipped with the optional Power Drain Pump (PDP) feature, open the drain by
turning the drain handle in a clockwise direction until it stops, and then press the button marked “Drain”
on the front panel. The water level will lower as water is pumped out of the basin. Turn the pump off
by pressing the “Drain” button on the front panel once the basin is fully drained. (NOTE: The Power
Drain Pump will automatically shut off after 2-1/2 minutes. We recommend turning off the pump
manually if all water has drained before automatic shut-off.)
Warning:
It is extremely important to follow the cleaning instructions located on the following page.
Failure to clean the pedicure spa adequately can result in serious health issues for your clients
as well as the nail technician. Failing to clean your pedicure spa may also cause the pedicure
spa to not work properly. Always consult your local and state codes concerning pedicure chair
cleaning for further requirements.
