(Updated on 22/04/2017)

One of the most important things for those who like enjoying a hot bathtub is the water temperature. As time passes, the water temperature in your bathtub drops down and requires constantly adding hot water to maintain the temperature, which in turn requires large capacity water boilers, wasting water and electricity.

 

Made of state-of-the-art AquateX solid surface material, the Aquatica True Ofuro Japanese style bathtub with Tranquility bath heating system is fitted with a re-circulation system (just like the traditional Japanese oidaki) and ozone disinfection system. The Tranquility bathtub heating system was designed to eliminate the hot water adding hassle and maintain the water temperature at a constant 104F /40C (41-45C in Europe and other markets).

 

The built-in Tranquility heating system is utilizing a low flow/high-efficiency ultra-quiet pump. Equipped with minimalist control panel, a standard 1.5kW inline water heater (US) or 2kW (Europe and other markets) with ozone disinfection, Bluetooth audio system and underwater LED chromotherapy system, the Tranquility system provides the ultimate luxury bathing experience.

What are the differences between the US 110V, US 220V and International versions of the True Ofuro bathtub with Tranquility bath heating system?

Which bathtub system should I choose?

 

All three bathtub heating systems share the same True Ofuro Japanese bathtub and are made of the same material – 5th generation AquateX.

The difference is in the electrical power requirements, heating element, control electronics and digital keypad design.

 

  • The US/Canadian 110V heated bath system features a 1.5kW heating element with thermostat limited at 104F (~40C). Due to general limitations of the 110V power (high AMP draw) and the subsequently a relatively weak heating element, this version is designed mainly to maintain water temperature, not to heat the water. The advantage of this solution is that it is a clean “plug & play”. You can simply plug your Ofuro heated tub into the existing electrical outlet without any modifications.
  • The US 220V/60Hz heated bath system features a more powerful 2kW heating element with thermostat limited at 104F (~40C). This bath heating system will react to water temperature changes and heat the water in the bathtub considerably faster. Considerations - you will be required to pull a dedicated 220V electrical cable to your bathroom, which will require services of a certified electrician. Morover, the bathtub comes with electrical junction box and will need to be hardwired. It cannot be plugged in via appliance type electrical cord like the 110V system discussed above. For larger water capacity bathtubs like the Ofuro Japanese bathtub, this is the recommended solution as you will no longer be dependent on your hot water tank.
  • The European/International 220V heated bath system is intended for markets outside North America and features a 2kW water heating element with thermostat that is factory pre-set at ~41C.  There is a way for the user to custom tune the system to the maximum heating temperature of 45C.

All three bathtub heating systems are equipped with 20-minute safety timer, which will turn the heating off in 20 minutes from the start of use. You will be able to turn the system on again, if this is what you wish.
