Caring for your Laurel Mountain products

Laurel Mountain uses durable, high quality materials and innovative technology in the manufacturing and design of its products to reduce the time you need to spend cleaning and caring for them.  However, proper and regular maintenance is still vital. 

Follow these general use and maintenance tips, as well as any that come with your Laurel Mountain product, and you will be rewarded with years of great service.

Bathtub, Tub Shower & Shower Maintenance

  • Prior to using the whirlpool, the tub and its system(s) should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on the high-gloss AcrylX™ finish. Use a non-abrasive cleaner and rinse thoroughly after cleaning.
  • To remove the labels on the tub, we recommend using fingernail polish remover if they do not come off easily.
  • Clean regularly with a non-abrasive cleaning spray or cream-based cleansing agent. Never use abrasive cleansers, scrapers, metal brushes, or anything that could scratch or dull the surface.
  • Add luster to and remove fine scratches from tub and shower surfaces by cleaning and polishing regularly with regular car wax. Do not wax tub and shower floor as these could become slippery.
  • If a heater is ordered with your bathtub, use therapeutic products with caution. Bath oils, salts and bubble bath may damage your tub’s system.

Whirlpool Systems Maintenance & Use

  • Prior to using the whirlpool, the tub and its system(s) should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on the high-gloss AcrylX™ finish. Use a non-abrasive cleaner and rinse thoroughly after cleaning.
  • To remove the labels on the tub, we recommend using fingernail polish remover if they do not come off easily.
  • Clean piping and pump monthly. Fill the bathtub with hot water (max. 104 degrees) to 2” above the highest jets, then add 2 tsp. of low sudsing automatic dishwashing detergent and no more than 8 oz. of household bleach. Operate your whirlpool for 5-10 minutes and then drain the tub. Refill the tub with water and run the system for another 5 minutes, then drain. Repeat every 30 days unless an ozonator was purchased.
  • Add luster to and remove fine scratches from tub and shower surfaces by cleaning and polishing regularly with regular car wax. Do not wax tub and shower floor as these could become slippery.
  • Use therapeutic products with caution. Bath oils, salts and bubble bath may damage your tub’s system.

Air Massage System Maintenance & Use

  • Clean the product like any other bathtub (see above). No other specific maintenance is required.
  • An automatic drying cycle will start 20 minutes after the blower is turned off. The LED blinks while waiting for the purge cycle. For a manual cycle, hold the power button for 3 seconds for an immediate purge.

Shower Door Maintenance

  • Clean your shower doors after every use. Use a squeegee to wipe water and soap residue off the interior. If you have hard water, spray the door with a solution of 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3 water prior to wiping.
  • Wipe your shower door track regularly with a dry cloth after showering
  • Replace shower door gaskets (horizontal and vertical) if there is any tear or if they become discolored. Gaskets are easy to purchase and change, however, specific showers require specific models.
