Air Jet Bathtub: An air jet bathtub is the general description of a bathtub built with bubble-making air jets. Each jet contains a check valve to insure no water is allowed into the air line feeding the jet. Each jet has anti-microbial hose to insure no bacteria growth. The system comes with an air blower that automatically heats the air to 145 degrees to keep your bath water from cooling off and allowing a more comfortable and longer air therapy session. The jet configuration for air massage systems will contain 16 jets.
Air massage system requires a 20Amp GFCI dedicated circuit and an access panel.

American Aqua Heat System: The most unique heater for your whirlpool bathtub on the market today. This is a hollow jacket that fits directly over the whirlpool motor, as the water is being circulated through the pump and being transferred back through the Hydro-therapy jets in the bathtub, it is taking the heat from the 48 frame motor and transferring it back into the bath water. There is absolutely no electricty needed for our Aqua-Heat transfer jacket. It will actually raise the water temperature by .2 degrees every 10 minutes with the air control closed. It also has the ability to lower the temperature of the motor allowing the motor to have a considerably longer life thus allowing bathtubs.com to extend the warranty of the motor from the manufacturers original 1 year warranty to a full 2 year warranty.

Anti-Microbial: Many of our products contain anti-microbial additives which is a substance that kills or inhibits the growth of microbes such as bacteria, fungi, or viruses. Anti-Microbials are substances that are incorporated into the manufacturing process when the plastic parts are made. The bathtub surface is anti-microbial as well as the air and water jet components and external piping. All normal cleaning procedures should still be followed.

Clean-Fill: Each whirlpooled bathtub comes with a port for the ease of adding our Clean*Way product, which insures all internal components of the whirlpool system including the pump can be kept free of bacteria.

Clean*Way: Clean*Way is a natural, environmentally-friendly citrus solvent that dissolves the build up of body and bath oils, dirt, hair, soap scum, rust, and mineral deposits, which are a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and mold. Clean*Way also works great for all sanitary surfaces – showers, vanity tops, sinks, kitchen countertops, tile, toilets, and your new bathtub.

LED Lighting: A unique lighting system we developed for custom bathtubs. The colored lights create an upscale atmosphere for your relaxing bath. The colors can change or be set to one color. Contact us for installation information.

Combination Bathtub: A combination bathtub is built with a combination of air, water jets, or Vibrosonic. A combination tub is great for different options in bathing: You can enjoy the stimulation of the air jet bubbles or relax and enjoy the therapeutic massage of the water jets. Combination tubs have recently become a very popular new trend.
Each system requires a 20Amp GFCI dedicated circuit and an access panel.

Safety Suction Valve: This valve was designed to lessen or eliminate hair entrapment in whirlpool bathtub systems. As standard equipment on all American Acrylic tubs, this valve is a valuable feature to help ensure your loved ones are safe. A simple spring-driven plunger will open and introduce air into your whirlpool pump. The pump will de-prime, allowing hair or other obstruction to be easily removed. Once the pressure on the system returns to normal operation, the whirlpool system will continue.

Note: No device can guarantee complete safety. Children should only us a whirlpool bathtub with proper supervision.

Soaker Bathtub: A soaker tub is a basic bathtub without air jets or whirlpool jets.

Whirlpool Bathtub: A whirlpool bathtub is the general description of a bathtub built with therapeutic water jets. Each whirlpool bathtub will come with 8 whirlpool jets and a 1HP pump. We plumb our whirlpool tubs with ainti-microbial flexible piping. They are self draining. As with the surface of your tub the piping system needs to be cleaned regurally to prevent buildup. Trim options are standard color matched plastic,  chrome, brushed nickel, and venetian bronze (also known as oil rubbed bronze). All of our whirlpool system components are manufactured directly by us in Farmersville, Texas. Trim colors are not guranteed to match other manufactures. Jet location can be seen by selecting the whirlpool option on the tub you are interested in.

  1. Before initial operation of your new American System take a few minutes to read instructions on its operations.
  2. Never allow the whirlpool system to run without sufficient water in the tub. The pump is designed to be cooled by the water. Continued operation without water could damage seal or impeller.
  3. Never allow small children in the bathtub without proper supervision.
  4. Don’t place small articles in the bathtub that could possibly enter into the jets or suction area.
  5. If your system is operated by a timer or wall switch always set timer or switch while out of the bathtub.
  6. If your system is operated by an air switch it can be turned on or off at any time while in the bathtub.
  7. Make sure the eyeballs of all jets are turned in a downward position.
  8. Do not add bubble bath, soaps, or oils to the water.
  9. While in the bathtub you may start making the necessary adjustments for the most comforting and relaxing bathing experience:
    • Adjust the eyeball for the directional flow that most suits you.
    • By adjusting the Air Control(s) you can determine your own air and water mixture. The Air Control closed all the way will eliminate air from your jets. Open your control(s) a slight turn at a time until the suitable massage action is determined.
  10. Be careful not to overdo your stay in the bathtub.

To properly clean an acrylic bathtub it is recommended to wipe the surface with a damp cloth or sponge using, Clean*Way, household soap or liquid detergent. Stubborn dirt or stains may be removed using Spic & Span in powder form or equivalents. DO NOT use any cleaning products containing abrasive or solvents since these could dull the brilliant surface or cause crazing. Products like Bon-Ami, Comet, Ajax, Scrubbing Bubbles, Lysol, or Windex are not recommended. Harsh chemicals  with any alcohol or amonia content should ever be used on acrylic surfaces which can cause crazing.

Whirlpool Systems: It is necessary to regularly clean your American Acrylic Whirlpool System. Normal cleaning should be performed once a month. Even though most of our products, (including the external piping), contain built in anti-microbial additives, we suggest cleaning the piping of the system.

Fill your bathtub with warm water.

  1. Add 1 cup of Clean*Way which can be purchased directly off this website.
  2. Turn your system on and allow it to run for about 10 minutes.
  3. Drain bathtub.
  4. Fill your tub once again with water and allow your system to run another 10 minutes, purging all soap from the lines.
  5. Drain tub. You should now have a clean and sanitary whirlpool system.
