CAUTIONS

Check all parts for shipping damage. In case of damage, DO NOT use. Contact the carrier for further instruction.
The installation area MUST be able to support the 66 pounds per square inch (45 n/cm²) load capacity of the tub. Otherwise, injury or
damage might occur.
Access for servicing the tub MUST be provided. Install the tub in a location that will permit access to the service panels, plumbing and
electrical hookups.
DO NOT lift the tub by the plumbing.
DO NOT modify the tub in any way. Modifications to the system or any component may cause the system to malfunction and will void the
warranty.
The door MUST be closed and latched during installation to avoid deformation of the tub shell.
ICCI assumes no responsibility for code infractions or damage to components due to improper installation.
Use extreme care during installation.
After installation and before use ensure all parts are properly and securely installed.
Ensure the bathroom floor is dry and free of obstructions before transporting or assembling the unit.

4 INSTALLATION
4.1
Preparing the Work Area

Access for servicing the tub MUST be provided.
Follow the recommended floor plan. Refer to Minimum Floor Space and Clearance Requirements on page 12.
The tubs are designed to be built-in against one, two or three walls, much the same way a traditional tub/shower unit is installed in
an alcove. Optional end panels are available for corner or one wall installation and are only available at the time of the tub order.
One wall installation
1.
2.
3.
4.
Two wall installation (corner)
Three wall installation (recessed)
Carefully remove the tub from the carton and inspect for shipping damage. If damage is found, contact the carrier.
Measure the tub.
Ensure the floor in the area of installation will be able to support the 66 pounds per square inch (45 n/cm²) load capacity of the tub.
Determine whether the unit will be built against one, two or three walls.
Three wall installation only - ensure a stud wall “pocket” has been constructed to receive the tub unit.
The opening of the pocket should be sized to allow the tub to slide in easily, without any binding between the studs and the tub.
Minor gaps can be covered by drywall or paneling. In remodeling situations, where tub or shower units have been removed, it may
be necessary to modify the pocket to receive the tub.
If desired, a wooden nailer may be attached to the stud walls as an additional mounting fixture for the tub.
Temporarily slide the tub into place.
Mark the location of the fiberglass lip against the studs.
Mount 2-inch by 2-inch cleats approximately 1/8-inch below the marks made in STEP 6.

5.

7.

8.
Ensure the cleats do not interfere with any components of the tub or restrict the installation in any way.
Install a service access panel (minimum 16 by 14-inches on the wall (the back wall or right wall) to allow the tub components to be serviced.

DANGERS - ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD

WARNINGS

Grounding is required.
The installation and maintenance of the tub MUST be done by a qualified technician, certified electrician or plumber.
Disconnect electrical supply or turn off circuit breaker before installing or performing any maintenance on the tub.
The National Electric Code requires the use of a ground fault circuit interrupter on all therapeutic pools and tubs (hydro therapeutic
tanks). Failure to follow this requirement could result in serious or fatal injury. Use a 15 AMP GFCI breaker only.
Be certain ALL electrical work is performed by a qualified electrician and is in compliance with local electrical codes.
ALL electrical connections MUST be water resistant.
The unit MUST be connected only to a supply circuit that is 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, 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 tub. Disconnect the tub and have the problem corrected by a qualified service representative BEFORE use.
All electrical conduit, fittings and wire to unit are to be supplied and installed by a professional electrician in accordance with the National
electrical code as a minimum requirement, including the supply and installation of a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI).
For Canadian installation, ground fault interrupter and a 30-minute maximum timer MUST be installed in the electrical circuit. (Parts not
supplied by ICCI). The unit must be operated through the circuit. The 30-minute timer must be located in a position where a person in
the unit cannot reach the timer.
Use a 15 AMP GFCI breaker only.
Ensure a 15 AMP GFCI breaker is installed to protect the unit. Insert the plug into a pre-installed GFCI protected hospital grade receptacle.

DANGER - RISK OF SCALDING
The hot water supply to the tub MUST NOT exceed 110° F (43° C) to protect the user from scalding.
WARNINGS
Be certain all plumbing work is performed by a qualified plumber and is in compliance with local codes.
Some state and local plumbing codes require the installation of a “reduced pressure zone” (RPZ) assembly on both the incoming hot and
cold supply lines to prevent back flow contamination into the potable water system. Invacare recommends you check local plumbing
code requirements to determine if RPZs are required on your tub installation. RPZs are NOT supplied by Invacare and are to be
provided by the customer if required.
CAUTIONS
Purge water lines. Hot and cold lines MUST be purged (blown down) to clear lines of debris prior to connection. Valves and spray heads
may become inoperable and/or damaged if lines are not properly cleared. Items damaged in this way are not covered under the warranty.
When operating water pressure exceeds 55 PSI, pressure regulators (similar to the ¾-inch Watts U5) MUST be installed.
1.
Refer to Electrical and Plumbing Hook-up Locations on page 16 for the location of the hot water stub and cold water stub.
2.
Measure the location of the drain on the unit.
3.
Install the drain in the floor in the appropriate location determined in STEP 2.
4.
Purge water lines. Hot and cold lines MUST be purged (blown down) prior to connection, to clear lines of debris.
5.
Install On/Off valves at wall and use unions between valves and stubs.
6.
Connect hot and cold supply lines to ¾-inch copper pipes found on back of tub in accordance with applicable building codes.
7.
Connect 2-inch drains in accordance with local plumbing codes.
8.
Attach the shower/massage wand and flow valve. Be sure to use the washers supplied.
9.
Check for leaks in supply or drain lines and check operation of tub. Refer to Operating Instructions on page 20.

CAUTION
Clean and disinfect the tub after EACH use to avoid resident infection and contamination of the tub.
DO NOT clean or disinfect the tub when it is occupied. Otherwise injury may occur.
Read and understand ALL information on disinfecting BEFORE use.
ALWAYS wear rubber gloves, an apron and a face shield when using disinfectant. In case of eye or skin contact, follow procedures on the
disinfectant container.
NEVER use abrasive cleaners like scouring powder or liquid cleaners containing pumice stone. The use of these types of cleaners will
make the gel-coat finish of your tub scratched and dull. NEVER use cleaners containing Iodine, Household Bleach, Bromine, Betadine® or
Methylene Blue. The use of these types of cleaners will cause the tub to stain. Use of unapproved cleaners will dry out the rubber seals
and gaskets and the tub will not function properly.
