Description

Introducing the Petite, a compact luxury tub that offers the perfect blend of style and functionality. Measuring 28" wide by 52" long, this smaller version of our Elite model is designed to fit in tighter spaces while providing ample comfort. In addition, the Petite features a 19" wide seat, making it suitable for average body types. Its slightly narrower profile allows easy passage through 28" doorways or more limited openings, ensuring a hassle-free installation.

Made with high-quality materials, the Petite boasts a modern and sleek design. It comes with a brushed stainless steel and frosted tempered glass inward swing door, adding a touch of elegance to your bathroom. In addition, the white glossy acrylic shell enhances its overall aesthetic appeal.

Despite its smaller size, the Petite doesn't compromise on comfort. It is equipped with Air + Hydro massage jetting option and an Ella 2-piece fast-fill faucet, right-hand door & drain position, as shown in the images. 

Experience luxury and convenience with the Petite walk-in tub. Don't let limited space hold you back - choose the Petite for a truly relaxing bathing experience without sacrificing style or comfort.

Please Note: Bather’s dimensions in the product images are 5’2″ and 120 lbs.

Soaking Option (No Jetting)

The Petite is the smallest model amongst the inward swing stainless steel door bathtubs. This model is recommended for average or petite body types and is ideal for smaller or narrow bathrooms. This model measures 28”W x 52”L and has a spacious 19” wide seat. The Petite’s main feature is the door made from beautiful, custom brushed stainless steel with a frosted tempered glass window to give it a sleek, contemporary look. The door is 16 ½” wide, and swings into the tub to allow the bathers to easily enter and exit the tub without being in the way of other bathroom fixtures such as a toilet or vanity. In addition, these inward swing doors are easier to close once inside the walk-in tub. The extended stainless steel door lever was uniquely designed to bypass the bathers’ leg when locking and unlocking the door in a seated position. The lever lock and the door gasket create a secure, watertight door seal, providing a safe, leak-free bathing experience. Another key feature on all Ella inward-swing door models is our patented detachable 360° swivel tray. 

The Petite 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 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. In addition, Ella gravity-driven dual drains are fast and reliable because they do not require an electric pump. In contrast, electrical-driven drains may fail due to electrical shorts or power outages. 

This model 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 covers the end of the tub, 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. 

Warranty

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.

General FAQ’s

Where are Ella walk-in tubs manufactured? (USA, Asia, Chicago, Design, Construction)

Our bathtub shells are manufactured in our partner factories in Asia, then assembled, jetted and tested in Chicago, IL USA. Every one of our safe, luxury bathtubs are made to order, giving you full customization on therapy options and features. 

What electrical standard is required for Ella walk-in tubs?

The Ella walk-in tubs can be manufactured with 110V electrical components in the USA or 220V components in our partner factories located in China. Each country will have different electrical standards.

Do your bathtubs come with a warranty?

Yes, Ella’s Bubbles offers a limited lifetime warranty which includes free parts during the lifetime of the original customer, living at the address of installation. This warranty is non-transferable to other customers or locations. Shipping and labor costs are not covered. Delivery time may be affected by customer location and the availability of part(s). 

A walk-in bathtub has a door–how exactly does water stay in the tub?

Since bathers enter the bathtub and close the door before filling or draining the bathtub with water, the door is responsible for keeping water in the bathtub. There is a rubber gasket installed into the door or the door frame which is squeezed at the time of closing and locking the door. The gasket seals the door and the door frame.

What is the difference between air massage, hydro massage, and microbubbles?

The air massage has an air pump which pushes the air through the air hoses and air jets, while the hydro massage has a water pump which pushes the water through the water pipes and hydro jets. Microbubble therapy is not a massage but a unique dermatological therapy. Rather, billions of microbubbles are injected through a single water jet by filling the tub with tiny microbubbles capable of penetrating and moisturizing and exfoliating your skin, as well as offering many benefits.

What installation instructions come with the tub?

Every walk-in bathtub installation manual, warranty or other pdf document can be found on the description tab.

What is the weight capacity for the seat?

If the customer can comfortably fit in the tub, the bathtub can hold the bather’s weight.

What happens if a part on my Ella walk-in tub breaks?

In case of any technical problems, please contact our customer support. Please be prepared to share a description of the issue and photographic evidence with your technician.

Where should the water supply lines be installed before the walk-in tub is installed?

Ella 2-Piece or 5-Piece fast fill faucets include two (2) five-foot long water supply lines, which must be connected to the shut off valves near the tub. Most non-Ella brand faucets may not include supply lines so please check the contents of your purchase.

If the walk-in tub is installed into a three-wall opening, would maintenance be affected?

By placing the walk-in bathtub snugly into a 3-wall opening, it would create limited access for maintenance since the both ends of the tub will be enclosed. However, the removable front apron has access panels for maintenance purposes. Most Ella walk-in tubs come with one reversible end panel included for left or right corner installation. If you need to cover both ends, please purchase an additional end panel.

What electrical house wiring is needed for my walk-in tub?

The house wiring for the tub will be determined by your professional electrician who will calculate total Amperage for each component. For example, if you only have one 5AMP hydro pump with a 7 AMP in-line water heater, it’s a total of 12 AMP. Since breakers are available in increments of 5 Amperage, it’s important to round up; therefore, for 12 AMP, a 15 AMP GFCI protected breaker is required. Walk-in bathtubs, the same as any other bathtubs with electrical parts, will require a dedicated GFCI protected electrical line. Consult with your local licensed electrician.

Will the walk-in bathtub fit in my home?

Ella walk-in bathtubs are delivered as one unit. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure you correctly measure the width of your doorways from the main entrance to the bathroom, and turning angles in which you would need to carry your walk-in bathtub into the bathroom.

Who can install Ella walk-in bathtubs?

Licensed and experienced contractors who are aware of local building construction requirements. Experienced electricians and plumbers will be able to install the bathtub by following our installation manuals, videos and directions.

How do I seal between the tub and wall?

You can seal between the tub and the wall using 100% silicone or silicone based caulking. Please see manuals for additional information.

Can I have additional grab bars installed onto my tub?

No, it will void the warranty. Any additional grab bars must be installed on the bathroom wall.

Is the extension panel custom sized for each tub to fit into a three-wall, 60” alcove opening?

Yes, most Ella tubs that are shorter than 60” include one (1) custom size extension panel to fill a three-wall, 60” alcove. Some tubs, like Front Entry or Mobile, do not have extension panels.

Will the outswing door open when the door is unlocked and there is water inside the bathtub?

Yes, the outswing door will open when the door is unlocked- no matter if the tub is empty or filled with water.

Does the tub come with an in-line water heater?

The Hydro Massage Pump is equipped with an in-line water heater. This in-line water heater is not designed to heat up the water, rather it only maintains the water’s temperature in the tub. As an alternative, the heated seat and backrest option can be purchased to keep the seat warm. It is suggested to upgrade to the largest available water heater to ensure enough hot water.

Why are the faucets so far from the seat?

Faucets are positioned farther from the seat and closest to a small front access panel to gain maintenance access if needed. However, you can request the faucet to be placed on the side wall since the faucet holes are drilled only after orders are placed.

What makes the Ella walk-in tub doors so special?

The most distinguishing features of Ella brand walk-in bathtubs are the sleek designs of the doors. Ella’s offers a variety of door styles: U-shape inward swing, U-shape outward swing, L-shape outswing, and S-Class inward swing. 

Does the bath come with handrails?

Ella brand walk-in bathtubs do not come with handrails, however, safety grab bars are included with most models.

Are the walk-in bathtub seats comfortable?

Ella walk-in bathtubs come with a molded acrylic seat. These seats are both sturdy and comfortable. The comfort level will vary due to the length or width of the seat, so please check the drawings to compare and assess.

How many jets are in my walk-in bathtub?

Please visit individual product pages to view images, descriptions and drawings for each particular model and jetting packages

Does the bath come with a faucet or handshower?

If you order an Ella 2-piece or 5-piece deck mount faucet, it will include a faucet and a pull out hand mixed.

Can one of the sections of the 4-fold shower screen be removed?

Yes, one (1) of the 4-fold sections can be removed to create a 3-fold shower screen.

What’s the difference between a 2-Piece and 5-Piece fast-fill faucet?

The main difference between the 2 and 5-Piece faucet is, the 2-piece faucet saves deck space (as there are two pieces); however, the 5-piece faucet has a slightly faster fill time.

Is it possible to shower in a walk-in bathtub?

Yes, if the shower head or shower column is properly installed to avoid water leaks through the pull out hand shower. The pull out hand shower is not designed to be hung on the wall because the water may leak through the retraction hole. Please see helpful information here:
