automatically maintain the water temperature at 102-
1 04 Fahrenheit. If the bathtub is to warm simply
adjust by adding cold water. The heater includes an

will not "false trip" from hot tap water. It will
only turn the heater off if the thermostat fails. To
reset, simply press the red button. If the

How do you replace the Door
Seal on a Walk In Tub?
To replace a worn
or damaged door seal you will need the following
- New Walk in Tub
- Acetone & rag
- Drop cloth to
protect the floor and tub
- Sharp scissors
Removing old seal:
- Start by peeling
the edge of the old door seal back until you
have a piece long enough to pull on. Note some
of the seal material may remain on the tub, this
will be removed later.
- Start to pull
the seal straight up and out, at approximately a
30 degree angle to the tub, stretching out the
seal. This stretching of the seal will break the
adhesive bond and release the seal from the tub
without the seal tearing apart.
Do not pull down when removing the seal, this
will result in the seal tearing apart.
- Work your way to
the bottom of the door, When you get to the
bottom of the arch you will want to start at the
top of the other side of the door, you will have
better leverage to pull up on the seal.
- After the seal
is removed, using your fingers or a rag rub off
any pieces of the seal left behind on the tub.
- Next apply the
acetone to a rag and remove any excess adhesive
left on the tub.
Installing new door
- After all previous
steps have been completed start to line up the new
door seal. Note the position of the old seal. Start
to apply the new seal, making sure that it is not
sticking out or causing the door not to close
properly. Warning Do Not stretch the seal when
- The new door seal
will probably be longer than needed, with a sharp
scissors cut off the excess.
Remember to leave
your walk-in tub door open when the tub is not in
use to prevent premature failure of the seal.
How do You Realign the Door
of a Walk in Tub?
Occasionally, during the shipping process, a slight
amount of distortion occurs that causes the door to
misalign. We have developed a very easy method for
correcting this misalignment.
- Remove the door
from the tub by removing the bolts and nuts that
mount the door to the tub.
- Using a high
grade, fast drying, hard epoxy, fill all of the
holes except the top hole. The surface of the
epoxy patch should be as flush with the tub as
possible, however, cosmetics are not an issue
since the hinge will cover the holes.
- Let the epoxy
dry completely, usually 10 to 15 minutes.
- Using a 3/16"
drill bit, drill a new pilot hole for the bottom
bolt 3/32" closer to the outside of the tub than
the original hole.
- Re-mount the
door using the top and bottom holes. Securely
tighten these two bolts.
- Using the
remaining holes in the hinge as a template,
drill new holes for each spot in the hinge.
Insert and tighten all of the remaining bolts.
What can I do to prevent
Heat Losses and Maintain Water Temperature in the
In response to the
overwhelming demand for solutions to heat loss in
both soaking tubs and air systems, Hydro-Quip has
engineered the Tranquility Series to combat heat
losses and maintain water temperature in the
"comfort zone" to enhance the bathing experience.
Series for Soaking Tubs and Air Systems are the
first real steps in "Green" Technology for the
bathtub market as this is the first series of
products that allows the tub temperature to be
maintained as long as the customer desires without
the continuous addition of hot water while enjoying
the benefits of soaking tubs or air system tubs.
Soaking tubs are
defined as tubs that do not incorporate either water
or air jets but are designed expressly for tranquil
continuous soaking without the noise of a jet pump
or air blower which detract from the desired
Air tubs are defined
as tubs that incorporate air jets to provide the
benefit of air bubbles as the primary form of
therapy and enjoyment.
Series for Air Tubs maintains the water temperature
even with the air blower operating at high-speed.
This system is engineered to combat the dramatic
heat loss associated with an air system tub. Heat
loss in an air tub is between 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 degrees
per minute leaving the "comfort zone" within 3 to 4
Two different systems
have been engineered to work best with each
application to insure maximum heat maintenance.
How do you operate the
- Depress and
release air button starts blower on high speed.
- Depress and
release button a second time reduced speed to
- Depress and
release button a third time turns off blower.
- Once the blower
is activated, an interval timer will start a 30
minute countdown. At the end of 30 minutes the
blower will shut off. If the blower is turned
off and then back on the internal timer will re
set back to 30 minutes.
- PURGE CYCLE:
The blower will automatically come back on
for 5 minutes 30 minutes after the blower has
been turned off. The initial speed will be low
for 30 seconds and then run on high speed for 4
minutes 30 seconds.
