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. Ella Outward Swing Door Walk In Tubs are equipped with a unique gear and shaft driven 3-latch door that edges out our competition who typically use a single latch/lever system. A 3-latch door system provides a more secure and watertight door seal than the conventional single latch system, providing you with a leak-free bathing experience.

Ella Walk In Tubs range from standard dimensions with the Malibu and Zen, our space-saving Mobile and Front Entry, to the wider format Monaco and Chi. We also offer two seat walk in tubs such as the Tub4Two and Big4Two. Choose from various jetting options like soaking, therapeutic hydro and air massages, rejuvenating and softening Infusion™ Microbubble Therapy, or upgrade to the luxurious Big4Two walk-In bath with independently operated, strategically positioned powerful foot massage jets to soothe tired soles and calves. Faucet options include our standard anti-scald Thermostatic Control Valve for the safety-conscious consumers, or you can select one of the fast-fill faucets available in classic and contemporary styles. Ella packages offer features like radiant heated seat and back rest to keep you comfortably warm as the tub fills or empties, aromatherapy to help stimulate your senses using essential oils, LED chromatherapy to aid in mood enhancement through colorful alternating hues, and ozone sterilization for easy maintenance with chemical-free, earth and bio-friendly technology.

One of the best and exclusive features of our walk-in tubs is its 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.

Our strategically designed jetting systems outshine our competitors by a longshot. Strategically positioned jetting ensures that you receive targeted and effective massaging where you need it the most. Ella’s offers a variety of sizes and jetting options to be able to fit your therapeutic needs. Below is a brief outline of our jetting systems. Please feel free to venture into the specific product pages for detailed jet counts and positioning based on the selected tub.

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.

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 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 clear and free of moisture and excess water helping to prevent the mildew build up.

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.

Push controls are standard on most packages as well as the most popular choice considering the ease of use. The push controls have a raised design for easy push on/off action. Digital controls are an option as well for those that want a sleeker option.
