How big should my hot water heater be?

How long should I book hydrotherapy treatments?

Use the Treatment section of our website to help you. In addition, time your staff during the training sessions to determine how long your particular treatments are taking in your spa. Be sure to include time for set-up and also time for clean-up.

How long should the actual hydrotherapy portion of the treatment last?

Typically, a vichy shower is running on the guest about 10 to 12 minutes. Most folks get the best results within that timeframe. A typical vichy treatment with a scots hose treatment is a total of about 15 minutes split evenly between the two. A typical tub treatment is usually no more than 30 minutes.

Will my contractor know how to install this?

We provide very clear and easy to follow rough-in and installation instructions. All WaterWerks installations involve basic plumbing easily within the grasp of any competent plumber.

How much space will the equipment take up?

Refer to our room layout drawings in the product pages of this website.

If I can only have one, which would you recommend, a vichy shower or a tub?

If it comes down to one or the other, we recommend a vichy shower, simply because it is the most versatile piece of hydrotherapy equipment and room set-up. You can perform many different services using a vichy shower, they are less expensive than hydrotherapy tubs and you have more retail opportunities based on the different types of services a vichy shower offers.

Does Waterwerks have a warranty on all parts? How does that compare with the competition?

Waterwerks has a Limited 5 Year Warranty on all of our products. The competition typically offers 1 year warranties and usually include whatever the individual parts manufacturers offer such as a 1 year warranty on the showerheads.

How much do we charge for the vichy or tub treatment

This is a very good question. The answer is in the results of your market analysis. What are other spas in the area charging. What is our total cost of the service. Product, hot water, payroll, overhead, etc…. Then what is our profit margin goal. So, can you be competitive with other spas in the area.
