Soaking (No Jetting)
The walk-in tub shell of the Chi is constructed with premium acrylic in a white glossy finish, supported by a stainless-steel frame with adjustable leveling legs, and reinforced with fiberglass gel coat layers. The nonporous acrylic surface is easy to clean and impermeable to mold and mildew. A textured floor, low step-in threshold, one deck and one wall mounted U-shape stainless steel grabs in a chrome finish, enhance your safety and allow quick and safe entry and exit in and out of the tub.
This standard size walk-in tub measures at 32”W x 52”L and has a comfortable 22” wide seat. The Chi’s main feature is the door which is made from industrial grade durable plastic composite material with a decorative tempered glass screen to conceal the mechanical door lock system. The door is 19 1/4” wide, and swings outward from the tub to allow the bathers to comfortably enter and exit the tub. The outward swing door also creates more interior space, which allows bathers to effortlessly sit into the molded seat, pull the door and lock it. Ella U-Shape outward swinging doors use 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 Chi comes with one of the best and exclusive features: Dual Drain Technology, consisting of two independent 2” gravity driven drains with four 2” outlets, 2 overflows and 2 drain openers, allowing for a fast and reliable drainage. 2 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 provided by a professional plumber. It is suggested to connect all 4 outlets to the house drain for the fastest drainage possible. Typical drainage time is approximately +/- 80 seconds for this standard size tub within ideal in-home plumbing conditions. Ella gravity driven dual drains are fast and reliable because they do not require an electric pump, whereas electrical driven drains may fail due to electrical shorts or power outages.
This model also includes one reversible end panel for left or right corner installation options and one extension filler panel kit for 60” alcove installations. The reversible end panel is used to cover the end of the tub that is exposing the walk-in tub shell. An additional end panel can be ordered if your tub will be installed against the wall with both ends exposed.
We provide a limited lifetime parts warranty* for the original customer living at the address of installation. This warranty is non-transferable to other customers or locations. Please visit the “Downloads” tab for complete warranty information.
The Capri model offers 4 jetting & therapy options: 1) Hydro; 2) Air & Hydro; 3) Hydro & Microbubble Therapy; 4) Hydro & Independent Foot + Calf Massage. The Capri is also available in a soaking option without jets.

The Hydro Massage System includes: a hydro pump with an in-line water heater, an eco-friendly ozone sterilization system, a hydro massage intensity control dial, and a strategically positioned hydro jet system for targeted and effective massaging.
The in-line water heater is designed to maintain the water temperature at a constant level while bathing for maximum comfort. The ozone sterilization system is the most eco-friendly, chemical free disinfectant that can eliminate a wide variety of inorganic, organic, and microbiological bacteria. This sterilization system is especially helpful in eliminating odors and hygienic maintenance.
Lastly, the hydro massage intensity control dial allows you to adjust the strength of the water stream by adding more or less air into the hydro system.

1. Controller Options
We offer two control options: Push Control or Digital Control. Our Push Controls are easy-to-use push down buttons that will operate your chosen jetting and any additional features.
The digital control is our more modern option, giving you a digital keypad from which to control your jets and additional features such as Chromatherapy LEDs and heated seat & backrest. Since the Digital Control is smaller, it may be more difficult for elderly to see and operate.
The Ella brand 4-fold shower screen is the best option in the industry for walk-in tubs because of the foldable feature that’s not offered with a standard shower glass or curtains. This gives bathers an airy, open feeling with the option to easily push the screen aside. The lightweight glass, secured in an aluminum frame with quality gear hinges, is sturdy enough to endure rigorous daily use. Additionally, one of the 4-fold sections can be removed to create a 3-fold shower screen.
