Congratulations on your purchase of the Baby Spa Whirlpool tub!
The whirlpool bath in this tub offers your baby completely new possibilities for relaxation. The
whirlpool tub provides rest and entertainment at the same time. The pleasing play of colours
during bathing creates a special atmosphere. Gentle massage by flowing air helps your baby
gain calmness and strength. Depending on the way of use, the bath is also stimulating or
ensures calm sleep.
Your Baby Spa Whirlpool tub is equipped with a special option of operation without
connecting to the mains; for all needed information and additional useful tips and important
safety instructions see this User’s Manual.
We wish you a lot of joy with your Baby Spa Whirlpool tub!

Rotho č. výr. 20097 0022
To prevent children, for example little brothers or sisters, from danger connected with electric
equipment, make sure that the cable is not hanging down and the children cannot reach it.
5 Handling Electric Equipment
Please respect the following precautions and safety instructions.
Never immerse the plug, cable and outer side of the whirlpool tub in any liquid (the whirlpool
tub is not designed for use in water).
5.1 Electrical Connection
Your Baby Spa Whirlpool tub is equipped with a power pack enabling its operation in all of
Europe (except the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus and Malta).
When using this power pack, your Baby Spa Whirlpool tub is supplied with a safe voltage of
12 VDC.
Never touch the electrical connectors with wet hands.
Before operation or charging, connect the connector of the equipment in the respective hole
under the tub.
Connect the mains plug only in a mains socket properly installed in compliance with the
5.1.1 Battery Charging
For charging, simply connect the plug into a socket. The status indicator changes from the
green continuous light to red blinking. The battery is now charging. After the end of the
charging process, the status indicator switches to red continuous light (see Chapter 9.1.2).
After the end of the charging process, unplug the power pack from the socket (pull by the
plug, not by the cable).

When pulling the cable from the equipment please pull by the cable, because it is a special
connector protected against splashing water.
After use, always switch off the equipment.
6 Preparation of Bath
Check that both the outer and inner bottoms of the tub are clean and not slippery.
Before the bath remove the remnants of bath additives with soap and water.
Ensure an agreeable temperature in the room and prepare all needed items so that you have
them within your reach.
Ensure a relaxed and calm atmosphere (e.g. switch off your mobile phone,
phone and door bell).
Fill the tub with warm water up to the “MAX” level marked on the side of the
Please make sure that the water is not too hot. It should not be more than
37 °C.

7 Selection of the Tub Area
Side for newborns and little babies
• 0-6 months: The lying area shall be used for newborns up to
the age of approx. 6 months, i.e. until the baby learns to sit
on his/her own.
Put the baby into the tub lying on his/her back. Hold the
baby during bathing. Follow the safety instructions below.
• 6-12 months: The sitting area should only be used when
the baby is able to sit on his/her own with sufficient
sureness. Stay close and follow the safety instructions
8 Important Safety Instructions
Never leave the baby unattended: danger of drowning!
Your baby must not bathe alone. A baby may quickly drown
at a water level as low as 2 cm. During bathing, the baby
must be under the supervision of an adult. Little babies,
who cannot sit on their own yet, should always be held by a
hand. Never leave your baby, not even when the phone or
doorbell rings. Several seconds of absence are enough to endanger the life of your baby.
The ergonomic shape of the inner side and the anti-slip mat provide the baby with better
support, but they do not protect them against the risk of injury or drowning.
TIP: Safe putting into the bath
The whirlpool tub is particularly suitable for the use of the safe grip
used by midwives: Put your right hand under the head of the baby
and grip him/her in the armpit of the right arm, so that your thumb
lies on the baby’s shoulder. Then the head is resting on your
forearm, which you can lean comfortably on the edge of the tub.
The other hand holds the baby’s legs and helps him/her slide into
the tub gently. If you prefer to hold the baby with your left hand, grip
the baby the other way round.

12 Cleaning, Care and Maintenance
12.1 Cleaning and Care
• Before the cleaning and care of the tub please unplug the mains plug from the socket.
• Use a sponge or soft cloth. Clean the tub with tepid water and a cleaning agent with
neutral pH. Do not use any solvents or caustic and abrasive cleaning agents,
otherwise the surface of the tub and jets could get damaged.
• Then connect the power pack, fill the tub with little water and rinse it. Drain the water
and put the air system into operation for several minutes to dry the tub – finished!
(see Chapter 9.2).
If in case of very hard water the whirlpool gets clogged with scale, fill the tub up to the
“MAX” indication, add the prescribed dose of a common descaling agent and start the
disinfecting program (see below). Then empty the tub and clean it in the normal way.
12.2 Disinfection
Never put the baby into the disinfecting bath!
Keep the whirlpool tub out of the reach of children during disinfecting!
To ensure hygienic safety of the children’s bathtub it is necessary to perform chemical
disinfection using the supplied disinfectant (for later orders see the service addresses)
according to the following schedule:
Please perform the disinfection before every 3 bath. If the bath has been
out of operation for more than 3 weeks, it also needs disinfecting before the
next use.
For the disinfection, fill the children’s bathtub with water to 5 cm above the
“MAX” indication. Then add approximately 18 ml (millilitres) or 4 caps of
disinfectant and activate the disinfection mode (see Chapter 9.2).
After the end of the disinfection mode it is possible to empty the tub into the bathroom outlet
and to clean it (see Chapter 12.1).
