SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES

Electrical

Be   certain   ALL   electrical   work   is   performed   by   a   qualified   electrician   and   is   in   compliance   with   local   electrical   codes.

ALL   electrical   connections   are   to   be   water   resistant.

Grounding

DANGER

Grounding is required. The unit should be installed by a qualified service representative and grounded.

WARNING

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

GCFI should interrupt power. Push the resest button. Power should be restored. If the GCFI 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 hydro massage bathtub. Disconnect the hydro massage bathtub and have the problem corrected by a qualified service representative before using.

A GREEN-colored terminal (or a wire connector marked “G,” “GR,” “Ground,” or

“Grounding”) is provided within the terminal compartment. To reduce the risk of electric shock, connect this terminal or connector to the grounding terminal of your electric service or supply panel with a conductor equivalent in size to the circuit conductors supplying this equipment.

Plumbing

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.

When   operating   water   pressure   exceeds   55   PSI,   pressure   regulators   (similar   to   the   ¾ ‐ inch  

Watts   U5)   MUST   be   installed.

The   hot   water   supply   to   the   tub   MUST   not   exceed   110°   F   (43°   C)   to   protect   the   user   from   scalding.

Part No 1118387

SECTION 1—GENERAL GUIDELINES

Maintenance and Inspection

DANGER

ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD. All disassembly 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 performing any maintenance to the tub.

If   any   part   of   the   system   is   not   functioning   properly,   DO   NOT   use   the   system.

  Have   the   system   serviced   to   correct   the   problem.

The   system   MUST   be   maintained   on   a   regular   basis   to   ensure   it   is   functioning   properly.

Disinfecting

Disinfect   the   tub   after   initial   set   up   and   ALWAYS   disinfect   the   tub   after   each   use   to   avoid   resident   infection   and   contamination   of   the   tub.

DO   NOT   disinfect   the   tub   when   it   is   occupied   otherwise   injury   may   occur.

ALWAYS   wear   gloves,   protective   apron,   and   face   shield   protection   when   disinfecting   or   cleaning   your   tub.

ALWAYS   handle   disinfectants,   cleaning   compounds,   and   powdered   sanitizers   with   extreme   care.

  Physical   or   mechanical   damage   caused   by   improper   handling   or   usage   of   such   products   will   not   be   the   responsibility   of   ICCG.

DO   NOT   attempt   to   turn   on   whirlpool   pump   during   the   disinfectant   cycle.

  Doing   so   could   result   in   skin   or   eye   contact   with   the   disinfectant,   which   is   corrosive.

  If   contact   is   made,   rinse   immediately   with   water.

  If   irritation   occurs,   consult   a   physician.

 

ALWAYS   read   and   follow   disinfectant   label   directions   carefully.

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,   bromine,   Betadine

®

  or   methylene   blue.

 

The   use   of   these   types   of   cleaners   will   cause   the   tub   to   stain.

  Never   use   cleaners   containing   bleach.

  Use   of   these   types   of   cleaners   will   dry   out   the   rubber   seals   and   gaskets   and   the   tub   will   not   function   properly.

SECTION 3—OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Disinfecting the Tub Using the Closed Loop System

WARNING

Disinfect the tub after EACH use to avoid resident infection and contamination of the tub.

DO NOT disinfect the tub when it is occupied otherwise injury may occur.

Read and understand all information on Invacare brand disinfectant 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 disinfectant container.

The disinfectant dispensing system has been factory tested and calibrated for use with Invacare disinfectant.

The use of any disinfectant with a dilution ratio (½ oz. per gallon) or viscosity level different than that of

Invacare disinfectant will result in an improper mixture of disinfectant and water. This may cause your system to be improperly disinfected - or in some instances, not disinfected at all. If using any disinfectant with a dilution ratio or viscosity level different than that of Invacare disinfectant or if switching from one type of disinfectant to another type, the disinfectant flowmeter MUST be calibrated before performing this procedure. Refer to

Calibrating the Disinfectant Flow Meter on page 32.

DO NOT use the disinfectant wand for showering. The disinfectant wand is to be used for disinfecting ONLY.

CAUTION

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, bromine, Betadine or methylene blue. The use of these types of cleaners will cause the tub to stain. Never use cleaners containing bleach. Use of these types of cleaners will dry out the rubber seals and gaskets and the tub will not function properly.

NOTE:   For   this   procedure,   refer   to

  FIGURE 3.1.

NOTE:   Ensure   that   the   whirlpool   jets   and   whirlpool   inlet   fitting   are   closed   before   starting   this   procedure.

1.

Clean   the   entire   tub   surface   to   remove   visible   tissue   residue   and   fluid.

2.

Depending   on   the   type   of   whirlpool   jets   that   are   in   your   tub,   close   all   jets   by   performing   one   of   the   following:  

• Turn   the   center   of   the   jet   clockwise   to   a   full   stop.

• Push   the   center   of   the   jet   in.

3.

Close   the   whirlpool   inlet   by   gently   pulling   the   plug   in   the   center   of   the   inlet   cover   outward   until   it   stops.

4.

Open   aerator   by   rotating   aerator   knob   two   turns   counter ‐ clockwise.

5.

Open   disinfectant   cabinet.

6.

Ensure   that   disinfectant   siphon   tube   is   placed   in   disinfectant   container.

7.

If   tub   is   equipped   with   a   disinfectant   wand,   hold   the   wand   over   the   interior   of   the   tub.

8.

Adjust   water   temperature   to   105°F   (40°C).

9.

Turn   disinfectant   On/Off   valve   to   the   On   position.

NOTE:   Liquid   will   begin   flowing   from   the   disinfectant   wand   into   the   tub   (if   so   equipped).

10. Turn   the   adjustment   knob   on   the   flowmeter   until   the   floating   ball   rises   to   a   level   of   35   cc/min.

NOTE:   At   35   cc/min.,   disinfectant   is   being   mixed   with   water   at   the   proper   ratio.

11. Continue   to   hold   the   disinfectant   wand   over   the   interior   of   the   tub   (if   so   equipped).

NOTE:   When   disinfectant   has   totally   filled   the   interior   plumbing,   liquid   will   begin   to   flow   from   the   burp   fitting   located   inside   the   tub   bowl   near   the   rim   or   from   the   disinfectant   wand.

NOTE:   Invacare   recommends   that   you   thoroughly   scrub   all   interior   surfaces   of   the   tub   with   disinfectant.

  The   use   of   a   long ‐ handled   brush   will   make   this   operation   easier.

12. Perform   one   of   the   following:

• Allow   some   liquid   to   pool   in   the   bottom   of   the   tub.

  Scrub   all   interior   surfaces   of   the   tub,   including   the   whirlpool   jets,   overflow   fitting   and   whirlpool   inlet   fitting   with   disinfectant.

• If   the   tub   is   equipped   with   a   disinfectant   wand,   spray   the   interior   surfaces   of   the   tub,   including   the   whirlpool   jets,   overflow   fitting   and   whirlpool   inlet   fitting   with   disinfectant.

  Scrub   all   interior   surfaces.

13. Turn   the   disinfectant   On/Off   valve   to   the   Off   position.

Calibrating the Disinfectant Flow Meter

WARNING

The disinfectant dispensing system has been factory tested and calibrated for use with Invacare disinfectant. The use of any disinfectant with a dilution ratio (½ oz. per gallon) or viscosity level different than that of Invacare disinfectant will result in an improper mixture of disinfectant and water. This may cause your system to be improperly disinfected - or in some instances, not disinfected at all. If using any disinfectant with a dilution ratio or viscosity level different than that of Invacare disinfectant or if switching from one type of disinfectant to another type, the disinfectant flowmeter MUST be calibrated using this procedure before disinfecting the tub.

This procedure should only be attempted by qualified maintenance personnel.

Failure to heed these precautions could result in injury to the tub operator or resident.

ALWAYS wear rubber gloves, an apron and face shield protection during disinfecting, cleaning and rinsing procedures. In case of eye or skin contact, follow procedures on disinfectant container.

NOTE:   For   this   procedure,   refer   to   FIGURE 4.1

  on   page   33.

NOTE:   Equipment   needed:

• Bucket   or   Pail,   at   least   1   Gallon

• Graduated   plastic   bottle,   at   least   16   ounces

• Felt   Tip   Pen

1. Open   the   whirlpool   aerator   by   rotating   two   turns   counterclockwise.

2. If   the   tub   is   equipped   with   a   disinfectant   wand,   hold   the   wand   over   the   interior   of   the   tub.

3. Pour   exactly   one   gallon   of   water   into   the   bucket/pail.

4. Mark   the   bucket/pail   at   the   gallon   level   using   the   felt   tip   pen.

5. Empty   the   bucket/pail.

6. Pour   a   whole   number   of   ounces   of   disinfectant   into   the   graduated   plastic   bottle.

NOTE:   For   example,   pour   2   or   3 ‐ ounces,   but   not   2½ ‐ ounces,   otherwise   the   results   will   be   skewed.
