What makes these inward swinging door models stand out from our competitors, are our incredible features and fixtures.
Ella acrylic walk-in tubs are constructed from the highest grade of white acrylic, with an easy to clean gloss finish that is reinforced with fiberglass. The acrylic shell is supported by a rust proof stainless steel frame for durability and multiple adjustable leveling legs for easier installation and stronger support. The Companion also includes one reversible end panel for left or right corner installation options. Additionally, the this model has two removable access panels and one toe kick access panel for service access if needed. The Ella Companion has a limited lifetime warranty for shell, door and the frame which can be found in the “Downloads tab”
In addition, our walk-in tubs have an adjustable threshold height option for easier access when entering and exiting the tub. The supporting frame raised on adjustable frame legs allows the drain pipe to be installed above the floor for easier drain connection to the existing house drain. You can also lower the threshold with leveling legs when access to the crawl spaces or basements are available and drains can be recessed below the floor level. Please refer to specific model manuals for more details, talk to our customer support specialists, your contractor or Ella’s Bubbles authorized reseller.
The Companion also features a removable stainless steel door with frosted tempered glass. The stainless steel door adds a modern and sleek look to the tub. With its detachable feature, hard to reach places have never been easier to access and clean.
In addition to our beautiful custom stainless steel removable door, our walk-in tubs are equipped with the industry best Ella Dual Drain Technology. This gravity driven dual 2” four-port drain provides fast and efficient draining and reliable and fast exit from the tub. The tub will drain in approximately 80 to 120 seconds depending on water volume, bather’s body size, and house drain conditions.
Furthermore, this model also features a 4-fold shower screen door. This Euro-style screen gives an airy open feeling with the option to push the screen aside quickly and easily. The sturdy construction of 1/8” thick lightweight glass secured in anodized aluminum frames enables smooth door operation with equipped high quality geared hinges strong enough to endure rigorous daily use.
The Companion model has the option to come with a complete shower kit. This modern and beautiful complete shower kit features a chrome column that holds a large overhead rain shower, as well as an adjustable slider that allows you to select the best height to place the handheld showerhead unit. We found a simple solution for you to upgrade your existing shower system, without having to go through a full bathroom renovation.

Please note, the 2 showerheads cannot spray simultaneously and for added safety, the shower rail is anchored to the wall with screws.

The Companion walk-in tub is available in multiple package options. Ella’s Bubbles offer a few therapeutic options in terms of jetting systems. Hydro massage, air massage, and/or Infusion Microbubble Therapy. The Companion can be ordered with different combinations of these systems.
Jetting & Therapy Options
- Dual Jetting (Air + Hydro) + LED Chromatherapy Light
- Dual Jetting (Air + Hydro) + Microbubble + LED Chromatherapy Light
Hydro Massage System
The hydro massage system includes a hydro pump with an in-line water heater, ecofriendly ozone sterilization, a hydro massage intensity dial control, strategically positioned hydro jet system for targeted, effective massaging, and an on/off push control. 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 Companion has eighteen strategically placed hydro jets in order to deliver optimal therapeutic relief while you bathe. Twelve upper seat area fixed jets work to provide relief to your back, hips and thighs, while the four lower area adjustable jets massage your calves. Feel free to compare the jetting options to our competitors’ tubs and you will find out that this is another exclusive feature and unique feature available only on 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.
Air Massage System
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.
The Ella Companion has ten 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. Four bidet jets in addition to the six floor jets provide you with an unparalleled bathing experience.
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.

Color has often been used in the past as treatment for illnesses. Since 1876, people used light waves to rid the mind and body of ailments and this is what is referred to as Chromatherapy. It is believed that each color has a different healing property. The included push control allows you to control the LED light, you can choose to have it cycle through a spectrum of colors or you can manually cycle it to your favorite color and have it hold there.
