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 an 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.

Ten (10) upper seat area fixed flat design jets work to provide relief to your back, hips, and thighs. While the four (4) 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.

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 Elite 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. Six (6) upper seat area jets gently massage your lower back and thighs, and two (2) bidet jets are included as well.

Infusion™ MicroBubble Therapy (Optional)
Ella Infusion MicroBubble Therapy consists of a single microbubble jet connected to a hydro pump and microbubble tank system.
