Enjoy the romantic charm of a freestanding soaker, without sacrificing the luxury of thermo-air massage, with Melinda by MTI Whirlpools. This bath captures the allure of a traditional freestanding tub and adds modern-day distinction with updated contemporary styling and a state-of-the-art therapeutic air bath system. Melinda's clean-cut, elegant design perfectly complements the old-world charm of today's popular period-style bathrooms, or can serve as an unexpected enhancement to the open, airy feel of contemporary decor.
Designed to preserve the authentic look of a freestanding soaker, Melinda features double-walled construction that conceals the air bath piping between layers of reinforced acrylic. This sumptuous bath is available as a soaker or with MTI's System Aria or Aria Elite therapeutic air bath systems that provide light full-body massage through strategically placed air jets. The jets produce thousands of tiny bubbles that relax muscles and stimulate circulation. The flow rate is adjustable from gentle to vigorous, or pulsating for a wave effect. And an electronic keypad controls all aspects of the air system.
With System Aria, air pre-warmed by a ceramic heating element is released from the bottom of the bath through 20 discreet "illusion" air jets that are barely visible and absolutely flush with the bottom of the bathing well. Aria Elite offers the enhancement of 6 seven-port low-profile lateral air jets positioned on the sides of the bath for a total of 42 additional air streams: 2 concentrated on the back area, 2 at the feet and one on each side for the hands and arms.
Both systems are exceptionally hygienic. Specially designed plastic protective jet housings, unique to MTI, isolate components to prevent residue buildup in the fiberglass backing of the bath. Sealed in each housing is a built-in backflow prevention check valve that keeps bath water from entering the air lines. Finally, 20 minutes after the air bath, an automatic purge cycle engages for 1 minute to remove any water that might be remaining in the air jets. This ensures that the next bath will be sanitary and fresh.
