INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1. PREPARING ALCOVE
• Alcove studs should be constructed as shown.
• Floor must be clean, smooth, and level (check with level). Sub floor must be
installed. Do not install tub on open floor joists.
• Cut hole in sub floor as shown, to accommodate drain.
• Access panels must be located on both ends of whirlpool alcove to service
pump/motor and drain assembly after installation. Failure to provide access
to these areas may result in added removal and re-installation costs in the
event service may be required.
4"
102mm
STEP 2. ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
• Install a 110 volt, 20 amp duplex outlet to the stud wall underneath the
whirlpool at least 4" (102mm) above the sub floor. (Figure 1)
• Motor/pump must have a separate 110 volt, 20 amp service from the breaker
panel to the motor/pump location. Do not combine any other electirc service
with whirlpool supply line.
• Service supply line must be connected to a ground fault interrupter (GFI) at
the breaker panel for added protection and to meet code requirement. Install
breaker after all other electrical connections have been made.
• Your whirlpool wiring should be installed by a licensed electrician. All
electrical preparation and connections must be made in strict compliance
with local and national electrical codes.
WARNING: If whirlpool is not properly wired, there
is danger of electrical shock or fire.
STEP 3. LEAK TEST WHIRLPOOL
• Water test tub in area where all fittings and connections can be
inspected.
• Fill tub with water, make sure water is above jets. Run for 10 minutes.
Inspect all fittings, plugs and connections for possible leaks.
• Drain tub. If any leaks are found, call American Standard Customer Service
Department at 1-800-442-1902.

as motor.
FIGURE 2. Check to assure tub is level.
STEP 4. INSTALLING WHIRLPOOL
• Install drain, waste and overflow.
• Trial fit whirlpool in prepared alcove. With whirlpool sitting flat on floor, check
with level on top of tub. Whirlpool should be level from front to back and side
to side (Figure 2). If tub is not level, remove tub and level floor using leveling
compound.
• A floor leveling compound (smooth mortar) or a similar quick-setting
compound specifically made for leveling floors may be used to fully support
and level tub.
• If alcove is larger than tub, shim between tub and studs to create a tight fit.
Screw tub flange to studs. (Figure 3)
• Connect drain piping to drain.
FIGURE 3. If necessary, shim between tub and
studs for tight fit and screw to each stud.

3. Infants should not be permitted in the whirlpool at water temperatures over 100˚
Fahrenheit and only with prior medical consultation and permission from your doctor.
4. Pregnant women and persons suffering from heart disease, diabetes, or high or low blood
pressure should not enter the whirlpool tub without prior medical consultation and
permission from their doctor.
5. For your first whirlpool bath, start with a short duration of five minutes. You can increase
the time intervals as your body's tolerance adjusts. However, do not use longer than 15
minutes at any one time.
6. High water temperatures and prolonged periods of use can raise internal human body
temperature excessively and impair the body's ability to regulate its internal temperature.
7. Check whirlpool before use. Maximum safe temperature is 104˚ Fahrenheit (40˚ Celsius).
8. Observe reasonable time limits to avoid nausea, dizziness, and fainting.
9. Do not direct the water spray to the following body areas in these instances:
A. Any area of the body that is swollen, burned, inflamed or where skin eruptions or
ulcerated sores are present.
1. Check to see if on/off switch or pneumatic
switch is in "on" mode.
2. Check for loose connections, blown circuit
breakers, GFI or fuses.
3. With the power off at the circuit breaker, check
manually to see that the motor shaft has free
movement and lacks obstruction.
MOTOR CUTS OUT/STOPS
1. Turn GFI breaker off. Check for loose
wiring/connections.
2. Check for low voltage at the motor (frequently
caused by undersized wire).
NOTE: Pumps equipped with automatic reset
overload protectors and solid state electronics
and switches aredesigned to eliminate failures
caused by mechanical switches and governors.
MOTOR HUMS BUT DOES NOT START
1. Turn GFI breaker off. Check for binding of the
motor shaft or obstruction in pump. Manually
rotate motor shaft to see that shaft turns freely.
2. Check for low voltage and undersized gauge
of wire.
B. Any area of the body that is sore unless approved by your doctor.

17. All electrical supply circuits providing the electrical power source to be connected to the
whirlpool bath should be checked, installed, and inspected by a licensed electrician and
inspected by the Building Code Authority having jurisdiction at the installation location
upon installation and prior to use of the whirlpool bath.
1. Check for air leak in suction line which can
cause “rumbling” sound.
18. The unit must be connected only to a supply circuit that is protected by a ground-fault
circuit-interruptor (GFCI). Such a GFCI should be provided by the installer and should be
tested on a routine basis. If GFCI fails to operate properly there may be a ground current
flowing, indicating the possibility of an electric shock. Do not use this unit. Disconnect the
unit and have the problem corrected by a qualified service representative before using.
19. A green colored terminal is provided within the terminal compartment. To reduce the risk
of shock, connect this terminal to the grounding terminal of your electric service or supply

SCRATCH REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS
1. For effective scratch removal and polishing, you will need to purchase these items:
1 sheet 1000 grit 3M® wet-dry sandpaper
1 sheet 1500 grit 3M® wet-dry sandpaper
SUPERFICIAL
SCRATCH
2000 grit
1 sheet 2000 grit 3M® wet-dry sandpaper
1 small container of 3M® rubbing compound #05933
These items can be purchased at most auto supply stores that provide supplies to
professional paint and body shops. Call before you go.
Not all auto supply stores will have these items.
2. Start sanding with 2000 grit paper. Use small squares of paper about 2" x 2" for all
sanding and use lots of water. The water serves as both a lubricant and to prevent residue
buildup on the paper. Residue buildup shortens the effective life of the paper and may
scratch the surface you are trying to polish.
3. 2000 grit paper is the finest grit available (the higher the number, the finer the grit). If you
can’t remove all of the scratches with 2000 grit, switch to 1500 grit. Remember to wash
the paper frequently with water as you sand.
4. If all of the scratches cannot be removed with 1500 grit, switch to 1000 grit. This should
remove most fine scratches. If you have deep scratches or a gouge, coarser paper may
have to be used (see chart to right). Be careful! Using grit that is too coarse may actually
put in more scratches than it removes.
5. Once you have removed all of the scratches by sanding the finest paper possible, repeat
the sanding process using successively finer grits of paper until you have once again
sanded with 2000 grit.
LIGHT SCRATCH
1500 - 2000 grit
MEDIUM SCRATCH
1000 - 2000 grit
DEEP GOUGE
600 - 2000 grit
SCRATCH / SANDPAPER GUIDE
6. Now use 3M® rubbing compound #05933 on a soft, damp cloth. Polish using considerable
pressure to produce a smooth, shiny finish.
