The Ella Ultimate acrylic walk-in bathtub is our fully-loaded model. What really sets this tub apart is the independently operated foot massage that is included. Sized at 30”x60” equipped with a comfortable 21” wide molded seat and a beautiful 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.

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 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 electric pump. Whereas electrical driven drains may fail due to electrical shorts or power outages.
The hydro massage system includes a hydro pump with an in-line water heater, ecofriendly ozone sterilization, hydro massage intensity dial control, 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 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 easier push to touch for easy on/off action. Smaller digital controller maybe 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 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 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 air massage system includes an air pump with a 3-speed variable push control and strategically positioned air jet system for optimal therapeutic relief. A digital controller option is also available with 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 easy push on/off action. Smaller digital controller may be harder to see and operate by elderly however that is a great option for people with specific design requirements.
The Ella Ultimate has seventeen (17) air jets strategically placed in order to deliver optimal therapeutic relief while you bathe. These jets are designed 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 three (3) bidet jets are included as well. Eight (8) floor jets deliver a gentle massage to your feet and legs while you bathe. Seventeen (17) 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.
