The drains are supplied with custom-designed a PVC elbow connector, allowing for easy T connection to the 1 1/2" house drain. Our Ella acrylic outward swing door walk-in tubs sport stylish and durable doors that offer easy access. The door material is made of PC which is a strong plastic that has high impact resistance. The shell is supported by a stainless-steel frame for durability during installation.

Hydro Massage System (Optional)
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. 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 Capri/Zen has fourteen (15) strategically placed hydro jets in order to deliver optimal therapeutic relief while you bathe. Nine (9) upper seat area fixed jets work to provide relief to your back, hips, and thighs. While the four (6) lower area adjustable jets massage your feet and your calves. The specially designed and placed foot area 2 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 (Optional)
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 controllers may be harder to see and operate by the elderly however that is a great option for people with specific design requirements.
The Ella Capri/Zen has sixteen (16) 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. Eight (8) upper seat area fixed flat design jets work to provide relief to your back, hips, and thighs in addition to the eight (8) floor jets in the lower foot area which 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.
Infusion™ MicroBubble Therapy (Optional)
Ella Infusion™ MicroBubble Therapy consists of a single microbubble jet connected to a hydro pump and microbubble tank system. The high-pressure hydro pump along with the microbubble tank brakes down the water molecules into billions of tiny bubbles which are then sent out through the single jet, filling your walk-in tub with billions of tiny bubbles, providing you with an unequivocal moisturizing and exfoliating therapeutic experience. These bubbles moisturize and exfoliate your skin while you bathe.
Infusion™ MicroBubble Therapy is a calming experience that offers many added benefits to your bathing experience. It is a process of infusing the pressurized water with billions of micro-sized, oxygen-rich bubbles. These bubbles whirl around your body to help you rest and unwind. The stimulation of the epidermal layer of your skin can also promote restfulness and the release of muscle tension. Feel your muscles release built-up tension as billions of tiny bubbles burst to help clean, exfoliate and hydrate your skin.
