Ella’s Monaco Walk-In Tubs main feature is the U-Shape Outward Swing Door made with industrial grade durable plastic composite material with a decorative tempered glass front screen to conceal the mechanical door lock system. This door is engineered to open outward, facilitating easier access upon entering and exiting. The outward swing also creates more interior space, which allows bathers to effortlessly sit into the molded seat, pull the door closed and lock it. Ella U-Shape outward swinging door uses a gear and shaft driven 3-latch door lock that edges out our competition, who typically use a single latch/lever system. A 3-latch door system creates a more secure and watertight door seal, providing you with a safe, leak-free bathing experience.
The Monaco comes with our unique Ella Dual Drain Technology (DDT) consisting of two 2” gravity driven drains with four 2” outlets, 2 overflows and 2 openers, allowing a fast, reliable drainage. Two caps are also included to cover up to 2 of 4 ports if needed. The 2” drain outlets can be connected to the standard 1 ½” house drain with a T or Y fitting and piping selected by a professional plumber. The drain pipe configuration and selection of the pipes and fittings is up to the homeowner or licensed plumber. However, for the most efficient drainage, please consider connecting to all 4 ports and to a 2” house drain if possible.
Some may wonder how an Ella brand drain can drain faster even though it’s connected to a 1 ½” house drain using a T or Y fitting. That’s because as the water drains, air is pushed through the 2 overflows creating a vent system and reducing the amount of air bubbles preventing a free flow of the water. As a result, this produces the fastest gravity driven drain in the industry. The average drainage time evaluated by our dealers range from only 50 seconds to a couple minutes based on tub size, condition of the house drain and configurations.
The Monaco also includes one (1) reversible end panel for left or right corner installation option and one (1) extension panel kit for a 60” alcove installation. These panels cover the end of the tub to give your bathtub a completed look. Additional panels can be ordered in the case your tub will be installed to the wall as free standing.
We provide a limited lifetime warranty, of free replacement parts for the lifetime of the original customer living at the address of installation. This warranty is non-transferable to other customers or locations. Shipping costs and the labor of replacement(s) are not included. Delivery time may be affected by customer location and the availability of part(s).

Hydro Massage System
The Hydro Massage System includes: a hydro pump with an in-line water heater, eco-friendly ozone sterilization system, hydro massage intensity dial control, and strategically positioned hydro jet system for targeted and effective massaging.
The in-line water heater helps maintain the water temperature at constant level while bathing, if the water tank can produce enough hot water. It is suggested to upgrade to the largest available 75-gallon water heater to ensure enough hot water. Please consult with a professional contractor to determine if your water tank can provide enough hot water for a walk-in bathtub. Our ozone sterilization system is the most eco-friendly, chemical free disinfectant that can eliminate a wide variety of inorganic, organic, and microbiological bacteria. The sterilization system is especially helpful in eliminating odors and hygienic maintenance. 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 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 Ella Monaco has fifteen (15) strategically placed hydro jets in order to deliver optimal therapeutic relief. Nine (9) upper fixed jets work to provide relief to your back, hips and thighs, while six (6) lower adjustable jets massage your feet and calves.
The Hydrotherapy Massage System’s most popular control system is the on/off push control because the buttons were designed to rise above the deck in order to make it easier to push. A smaller, digital controller is also available for the Air+Hydrotherapy Massage Package, but may be more difficult for elderly to see and operate.
Independent Hydro Foot Massage System
The Hydro + Independent Foot Massage package uses two independently run pumps to give bathers a simultaneous full body and foot massage. Or, bathers can enjoy an independent foot massage within minutes of simply filling the foot well up the seat level. The foot massage system includes a hydro pump with an in-line water heater. Both the strategically positioned upper and lower jets powered by two hydro pumps have an intensity dial air control to adjust the strength of the water pressure to your liking from a gentle pressure to a more rigorous massage.
Air Massage System
The Air Jet Massage System includes an air pump with a 3-speed variable push control, strategically positioned air jets for optimal therapeutic relief, and an auto-purge to maintain an air system free of any build ups. The Air Massage System’s most popular control system is the on/off push control because the buttons were designed to rise above the deck in order to make it easier to push. A smaller, digital controller is also available for the Air+Hydrotherapy Massage Package, but may be more difficult for elderly to see and operate.
The Monaco has sixteen (16) strategically placed air jets that pull in air and blow it into the water to create a gentle, relaxing massage. Eight (8) upper, fixed flat jets work to provide relief to your back, hips and thighs, while an additional eight (8) floor jets located in the lower foot area deliver a gentle massage to your feet and legs. Additionally, two (2) of the eight (8) upper jets are bidet jets.
The Air Jet Massage System also includes an 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 run for 120 seconds to ensure your system is clear and free of moisture and excess water helping to prevent the mildew build up.
Note: This massage is more gentle than a Hydrotherapy Massage.
Ella Infusion™ MicroBubble Therapy System 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, breaks down the water molecules into billions of tiny bubbles which are then sent out through the single jet. At the push of an on/off button, this feature can provide a moisturizing, exfoliating therapeutic experience all while detoxifying and relieving skin related issues.
