IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

INSTRUCTIONS PERTAINING TO A RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK OR INJURY TO PERSONS

READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS!

!WARNING: Risk of personal injury. Do not permit children to use this unit without adult supervision.

!WARNING: Risk of personal injury. Do not operate this unit without the guard over the suction fitting.

!WARNING: Risk of electric shock. Do not permit electrical appliances (hair dryer, telephone, radio, etc.) within

0 inches (1524mm) of this unit.

!WARNING: Risk of hyperthermia and possible drowning. People using medications and/or having adverse

medical history should consult a physician before using this product.

!WARNING: Risk of personal injury. Do not overfill unit before entering. Entering tub when filled more than 2/

can cause overflow and slippery conditions. Exercise caution when entering and exiting.

!WARNING: No Food or Alcoholic Beverages. Use of your bathtub immediately after meals is not

recommended. Avoid alcohol consumption before or during bathing. Alcoholic beverages can cause drowsiness or hyperthermia resulting in loss of consciousness or even drowning.

!WARNING: Pregnancy. If you are or think you may be pregnant, consult your physician before using the bathtub.

Never drop or insert any object into any opening.

Use this unit only for its intended use as described in this manual. Do not use any attachments not recommended by American Standard.

The unit must be connected only to a supply circuit that is properly protected by a ground-faultcircuit-interrupter(GFCI). Such a GFCI should be provided by the installer and should be tested on a routine basis. To test the GFCI, push the test button. The GFCI should interrupt power. Push the reset button. Power should be restored. If the GFCI fails to operate in this manner, the GFCI is defective. If the GFCI interrupts power to the bathtub without the test button being pushed, a ground current is flowing, indicating the possibility of an electric shock. Do not use this air bath. Disconnect the air bath and have the problem corrected by a licensed electrician before using.

General Installation Information

Carefully uncrate and inspect your new bath for any shipping damage. If such damage is found, report it to your vendor immediately. After inspection and during installation, protect the bath from construction damage. Before installation, and before enclosing with wallboard, tile, etc., the bath must be filled with water and operated to check for leaks that may have resulted from shipping damage or mishandling! Do not make unauthorized modifications to the air bath system. This could adversely affect the safety and performance of the air bath and void the warranty. Do not handle or move the air bath by the air blower or piping system. Fittings (bath filler, shower arm, etc.) are not provided with the bath and must be ordered separately. Framing and enclosing materials are provided by others.

For electrical requirements, refer to section titled “Air Bath Electrical Installation Instructions”.

Check for availability of optional American Standard wall tiling bead (required for recess installation). Protect all finished surfaces of the air bath during construction and installation using a drop cloth.

! WARNING: Do not lift air bath by the piping harness at any time.

INSTALLATION AND FRAMING INSTRUCTIONS

The variety of installations possible for this air bath may require framing procedures other than those shown. Locate studs as needed. Ensure roughing-indimensions are proper, plumb and square. Provisions must be made in all installations for an access opening for servicing the air blower and controls. It is strongly recommended that an additional opening be provided for access to the drain components. The apron should not be used as the primary access opening.

1.Position the air bath into the installation opening and level the deck in both directions, shimming the integral support feet IF necessary. Mark the final position of the underside of the deck by tracing a line on to the studs (see Figure 1).

2.Remove the air bath and attach a 1 x 4 stringer to the studs, with the top of the stringer touching the traced line.

!The rim of the bath must not support weight.

. Install drain components to the air bath following the drain installation instructions. Before replacing your air bath for final installation, be certain that an opening has been provided in the sub-floorfor the drain. See theroughing-indrawing and Table 1 for suggested opening size (shadowed) and location dimensions. The drain/overflow of the bath extends below the bottom of the bath. Note that this requires a cutout in the floor.

The floor structure beneath the bath must be able to support a total weight of bath, water, and

!bather. Refer to Table 1 under total weight for your model.

For Models: 2425V.168C-RHOand2425V.268C-LHO;

DRAIN CONNECTION AND SYSTEM TEST

Using recommended drain assembly, connect the bath drain to waste line in accordance with the drain assembly instructions. Tighten all drain joints securely. Clean the air bath and fill with water to a point 2" above the top of the highest jet. Check for leaks around all piping connections while the air bath is running.

POST INSTALLATION CLEAN-UP

Remove all construction debris from bath. Tile grout can be removed with a wooden popsicle stick or tongue depressor. Do not use wire brushes or any other metal implement on bath surface.

Post installation clean-upgenerally can be completed using warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent. Stubborn dirt or stains may be removed using granular Spic and Span® mixed with water.

Painter's naphtha can be used to remove excess adhesives and/or wet oil-basepaint.

AFTERCARE and CLEANING

The high gloss surface is resistant to impact and chemicals and will retain its lasting luster with proper care and maintenance.

Always fill the tub with temperate water. Excessively hot water may cause surface damage

Remove bath mat after use and hang to dry. Allowing bath mat to dry in the tub may cause surface damage.

Clean after use with a mild liquid household detergent cleaner. Do not use Lestoil, Lysol Disinfectant (spray or concentrate), or Lysol Basin, Tub and Tile Cleaner, Windex, Mr. Clean, Dow Disinfectant Bathroom Cleaner, or cleaning products in aerosol cans.

HARSH CHEMICALS SHOULD NEVER BE USED ON ACRYLIC SURFACES.

Do not use wire brushes, knives or sharp objects to remove stains, cigarette tar deposits,or other surface blemishes.

Abrasive cleaners or powders must not be used, since they will dull the surface. If the glossy surface looses

its sheen, dulled areas can be restored by rubbing with a white "automotive type" polishing compound and waxing with a "liquid wax."

Do not wax areas where you walk or stand.

Do not allow nail polish remover, acetone, dry cleaning fluid, paint remover or other solvents to come into contact with the surface.

Clean the surrounding surface immediately after using caustic drain cleaners.

Burning cigarettes will damage the surface.

Should damage to the fixture occur, repairs can be made quickly and easily.

Your distributor or builder can provide details.

• Do not permit drain cleaner to enter the circulation system.

CIRCULATION SYSTEM CLEANING-PURGINGPROCEDURES

Refer to the “Operating and Maintenance Instruction Manual” (Document 75407 -100)for complete purging, cleaning, and maintenance details.
