Sized at 30”x60” equipped with a comfortable 21” wide molded seat and a beautifully custom crafted brushed stainless-steel door with frosted tempered glass offering this tub a unique high-end look. A low step-in threshold, textured slip resistant floor, as well as wall and deck mounted grab bars work in unison to allow for easy and safe entry and exit of the tub. The acrylic shell is backed by a solid rustproof stainless-steel frame with adjustable leveling legs, giving you a safe, sturdy, and long-lasting walk-in bathtub.

Lead time: Please allow 2-4 business days for order handling and 3-8 business days for shipping.

Overview

The Ultimate also includes one (1) reversible end panel for the left or right corner installation option and one (1) extension panel kit for 60” alcove installations. Additionally, the Ultimate has two removable access panels and one toe kick access panel for service access if needed. All Ella’s Bubbles walk-in tubs have a limited lifetime warranty for the shell, door, and frame which can be found in the “Downloads” section of the product page or at the end of the manual. You can also view all available packages of the Ultimate under the “Packages” tab below.

One of the best and exclusive Ultimate features is the independently operated foot massage system. With this feature, you can engage the lower jets on their own. What this means is that if you wanted to just fill the lower portion of the tub and enjoy a quick foot massage, you can do that. In other tubs, you would need to fill the tub all the way to the overflows in order to utilize the hydro jets. This allows you to control which jets are on, upper, lower, or both. Easy to use push controls make operating this walk-in tub a breeze.

The Ultimate features our Dual Drain Technology (DDT) which consists of two (2) independently operated 2” gravity-driven drains. Each drain is outfitted with its own overflow and stainless-steel cable operated drain opener with an extended handle for an easier grip. Typical drainage time is approximately +/-80 seconds at ideal in-home plumbing conditions. Having two gravity-driven 2” drains not only provides you with quick and reliable drainage but also acts as a safety feature in case if one drain fails, allowing you to safely drain and exit the walk-in tub. The two-inch drains can be connected using Tee or Y 2” pipe connectors to the standard 1 ½” or 2” house drain. If possible, it is recommended to connect into 2” or 3” house drain for a faster drainage time. Ella gravity-driven Dual Drain drains are fast and reliable because they do not require an electric pump. Whereas electrical driven drains may fail due to electrical shorts or power outages.

    Hydro Massage System 

    The hydro massage system includes a hydro pump with an in-line water heater, eco-friendly ozone sterilization, hydro massage intensity dial control, a strategically positioned hydro-jet system for targeted and effective massaging, and an on/off push control. A second hydro pump is also included for the upper area jets. There is also a digital controller option available with the dual massage (air and hydro) package, however, the on/off push controls are the most popular choice considering the ease of use. The push controls are designed to rise above the deck for the easier push to touch for easy on/off action. Smaller digital controllers may be harder to see and operate by the elderly, however, that is a great option for people with specific design requirements.

    The hydro massage intensity dial control allows you to adjust the strength of the water stream by adding more or less air into the hydro system. The in-line water heater and ozone sterilization automatically engage when the hydro massage push control is pressed down when turning on your jets.

    The Ella Ultimate has seventeen (17) strategically placed hydro jets in order to deliver optimal therapeutic relief while you bathe. Eleven (11) upper seat area fixed flat design jets work to provide relief to your back, hips, and thighs. While the six (6) lower area adjustable jets massage your feet and your calves. The specially designed and placed foot area 4 hydro jets are moved all the way down to the floor allowing the bather to be in a relaxed position for maximum foot massage enjoyment. Feel free to compare the jetting in our competitor tubs and you will find out that this is another exclusive feature and unique feature available only in Ella’s Bubbles walk-in tubs.

    The ozone sterilization helps to keep your tub cleaner and clear of bacteria build-up. The in-line water heater helps to maintain the bathing temperature at a constant level; however, it does not guarantee your hot water level in the water tank. It is suggested to upgrade to the largest available 75-gallon water heater to assure enough hot water. Please consult with your contractor to assure enough hot water for your walk-in tub.

    Air Massage System

    The air massage system includes an air pump with a 3-speed variable push control and a strategically positioned air jet system for optimal therapeutic relief. A digital controller option is also available with a dual massage (air and hydro) package however the on/off push controls are the most popular choice considering the ease of use. The push controls have a raised design for an easy push on/off action. The smaller digital controller may be harder to see and operate by the elderly however that is a great option for people with specific design requirements.

    The Ella Petite has ten (10) air jets strategically placed in order to deliver optimal therapeutic relief while you bathe. These jets are designed to flush with the acrylic shell in order to ensure maximum comfort. Two (2) bidet jets are placed in the seating area, as well as eight (8) floor jets, deliver a gentle massage to your feet and legs while you bathe. Sixteen (16) jets in total, all strategically placed to give you the best bathing experience imaginable.

    The air massage system also includes the auto-purge feature. This feature engages automatically 20 minutes after the pump has been turned off to purge water out of the air jet lines. The auto-purge will engage automatically and run for 120 seconds to ensure your system is clean and free of moisture and excess water helping to prevent the mildew build-up.

        General FAQ’s

        Where is Ella walk-in tubs manufactured?

        Products are manufactured and completed in the USA or in our partner factories located in China. The production location of each ordered walk-in tub is based on required electrical standards and customer’s desired features. A 110V electrical requirement will most likely be completed and shipped out of the USA, while tubs with 220V electrical components will be completed and shipped out of China.

        What electrical standard is required for Ella walk-in tubs?

        The Ella walk-in tubs can be manufactured with 110V electrical components in the USA or 220V components in our partner factories located in China. Each country will have different electrical standards.

        Do your bathtubs come with a warranty?

        Yes, Ella’s Bubbles offers a limited lifetime warranty which includes free parts during the lifetime of the original customer, living at the address of installation. This warranty is non-transferable to other customers or locations. Shipping and labor costs are not covered. Delivery time may be affected by customer location and the availability of part(s). 

        A walk-in bathtub has a door–how exactly does water stay in the tub?

        Since bathers enter the bathtub and close the door before filling or draining the bathtub with water, the door is responsible for keeping water in the bathtub. There is a rubber gasket installed into the door or the door frame which is squeezed at the time of closing and locking the door. The gasket seals the door and the door frame.

        What is the difference between air massage, hydro massage, and microbubbles?

        The air massage has an air pump which pushes the air through the air hoses and air jets, while the hydro massage has a water pump which pushes the water through the water pipes and hydro jets. Microbubble therapy is not a massage but a unique dermatological therapy. Rather, billions of microbubbles are injected through a single water jet by filling the tub with tiny microbubbles capable of penetrating and moisturizing and exfoliating your skin, as well as offering many benefits.

        What installation instructions come with the tub?

        Every walk-in bathtub installation manual, warranty or other pdf document can be found on the description tab.

        What is the weight capacity for the seat?

        If the customer can comfortably fit in the tub, the bathtub can hold the bather’s weight.

        What happens if a part on my Ella walk-in tub breaks?

        In case of any technical problems, please contact our customer support. Please be prepared to share a description of the issue and photographic evidence with your technician.

        Where should the water supply lines be installed before the walk-in tub is installed?

        Ella 2-Piece or 5-Piece fast fill faucets include two (2) five-foot long water supply lines, which must be connected to the shut off valves near the tub. Most non-Ella brand faucets may not include supply lines so please check the contents of your purchase.

        If the walk-in tub is installed into a three-wall opening, would maintenance be affected?

        By placing the walk-in bathtub snugly into a 3-wall opening, it would create limited access for maintenance since the both ends of the tub will be enclosed. However, the removable front apron has access panels for maintenance purposes. Most Ella walk-in tubs come with one reversible end panel included for left or right corner installation. If you need to cover both ends, please purchase an additional end panel.

        What electrical house wiring is needed for my walk-in tub?

        The house wiring for the tub will be determined by your professional electrician who will calculate total Amperage for each component. For example, if you only have one 5AMP hydro pump with a 7 AMP in-line water heater, it’s a total of 12 AMP. Since breakers are available in increments of 5 Amperage, it’s important to round up; therefore, for 12 AMP, a 15 AMP GFCI protected breaker is required. Walk-in bathtubs, the same as any other bathtubs with electrical parts, will require a dedicated GFCI protected electrical line. Consult with your local licensed electrician.

        Will the walk-in bathtub fit in my home?

        Ella walk-in bathtubs are delivered as one unit. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure you correctly measure the width of your doorways from the main entrance to the bathroom, and turning angles in which you would need to carry your walk-in bathtub into the bathroom.

        Who can install Ella walk-in bathtubs?

        Licensed and experienced contractors who are aware of local building construction requirements. Experienced electricians and plumbers will be able to install the bathtub by following our installation manuals, videos and directions.

        How do I seal between the tub and wall?

        You can seal between the tub and the wall using 100% silicone or silicone based caulking. Please see manuals for additional information.

        Can I have additional grab bars installed onto my tub?

        No, it will void the warranty. Any additional grab bars must be installed on the bathroom wall.

        Is the extension panel custom sized for each tub to fit into a three-wall, 60” alcove opening?

        Yes, most Ella tubs that are shorter than 60” include one (1) custom size extension panel to fill a three-wall, 60” alcove. Some tubs, like Front Entry or Mobile, do not have extension panels.

        Will the outswing door open when the door is unlocked and there is water inside the bathtub?

        Yes, the outswing door will open when the door is unlocked- no matter if the tub is empty or filled with water.

        Does the tub come with an in-line water heater?

        The Hydro Massage Pump is equipped with an in-line water heater. This in-line water heater is not designed to heat up the water, rather it only maintains the water’s temperature in the tub. As an alternative, the heated seat and backrest option can be purchased to keep the seat warm. It is suggested to upgrade to the largest available water heater to ensure enough hot water.

        Why are the faucets so far from the seat?

        Faucets are positioned farther from the seat and closest to a small front access panel to gain maintenance access if needed. However, you can request the faucet to be placed on the side wall since the faucet holes are drilled only after orders are placed.

        What makes the Ella walk-in tub doors so special?

        The most distinguishing features of Ella brand walk-in bathtubs are the sleek designs of the doors. Ella’s offers a variety of door styles: U-shape inward swing, U-shape outward swing, L-shape outswing, and S-Class inward swing. 

        Does the bath come with handrails?

        Ella brand walk-in bathtubs do not come with handrails, however, safety grab bars are included with most models.

        Are the walk-in bathtub seats comfortable?

        Ella walk-in bathtubs come with a molded acrylic seat. These seats are both sturdy and comfortable. The comfort level will vary due to the length or width of the seat, so please check the drawings to compare and assess.

        How many jets are in my walk-in bathtub?

        Please visit individual product pages to view images, descriptions and drawings for each particular model and jetting packages

        Does the bath come with a faucet or handshower?

        If you order an Ella 2-piece or 5-piece deck mount faucet, it will include a faucet and a pull out hand mixed.

        Can one of the sections of the 4-fold shower screen be removed?

        Yes, one (1) of the 4-fold sections can be removed to create a 3-fold shower screen.

        What’s the difference between a 2-Piece and 5-Piece fast-fill faucet?

        The main difference between the 2 and 5-Piece faucet is, the 2-piece faucet saves deck space (as there are two pieces); however, the 5-piece faucet has a slightly faster fill time.

        Is it possible to shower in a walk-in bathtub?

        Yes, if the shower head or shower column is properly installed to avoid water leaks through the pull out hand shower. The pull out hand shower is not designed to be hung on the wall because the water may leak through the retraction hole. Please see helpful information here:

        Can you lie down in a walk-in tub?

        Are all walk-in bathtubs the same?

        No, Ella brand walk-in bathtubs have over 25 different model options. Our tubs range in door style, size, jetting options, and therapeutic options.

        What size water heater is required?

        It is suggested to upgrade to the largest available water heater to ensure enough hot water can be produced. Please consult with a professional contractor to determine if your water tank can provide enough hot water for a walk-in bathtub, or contact Ella’s Bubbles agent or customer support.
