1. What can I add to MicroSilk® baths?
You may add bath salts, teas, oils, and aromatherapy oils to a MicroSilk® Bath. You will notice that the amount of aromatherapy oils necessary will be reduced in a MicroSilk® bath. The oils will float to the surface and be aerosolized with the anions, rather than being emulsified in the bath water. If you are using a bath additive to treat a skin condition, be sure to check with your doctor before using it in MicroSilk®.
2. Should I put lotion or medicine on before or after MicroSilk®?
After; MicroSilk cleans the skin even better than soap, so any lotions or creams will be removed during the bath. Applying lotion after the bath is encouraged to lock in moisture.
3. How sanitary is the system?
Jason® baths include a series of specially engineered features to keep the system clean including positive drain plumbing, v-Jets, purge cycles, dry air channels, and ozone (O3) to sanitize the water. Collectively, these features are known as Sani-Design.
4. If this is lifting impurities out of my body, where do they go?
MicroSilk® microbubbles bind to impurities and lift them away from the body to the water’s surface. The impurities gather around the edge of the bath for easy rinsing when the bath is complete.
5. Where does the oxygen come from?
The oxygen comes from the ambient air around you. It is drawn into the MicroSilk® system through a venturi and dissolved at elevated pressures through our patented process.
6. Are gases other than oxygen present in the bath? Will they have an effect on my skin?
MicroSilk® is fueled by ambient air, and oxygen is most easily dissolved in the water. So, all gases in the air around you are then increased in the bath, but only the oxygen can be used by our skin’s cells.
7. If I am diagnosed with _________, will MicroSilk® work for me?
While we have heard about great improvements in our customers’ cases of eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis, irritated skin, rashes resulting from chemotherapy, and a number of other conditions, everyone’s skin is different. The oxygen levels in MicroSilk® are safe and contribute greatly to health and well-being. Consult with your doctor regarding treatment of particular skin conditions.
8. How long will the effects of MicroSilk® last?
We have received customer responses giving time ranges from 12 hours up to 3 days. Everyone’s skin is different.
9. Can I put my head and face in it?
Yes; the most comfortable way to do so is to use Jason®’s MicroSilk® Wand. The wand fits into a MicroSilk® jet, allowing you to apply MicroSilk® directly where you want it.
10. If I order a combination bath, can I run both at the same time?
No, they will run independently because the cleansing effects of MicroSilk® will be diminished when operated simultaneously with a Whirlpool or AirMasseur® hydrotherapy.
11. Do you need to clean/ flush the unit? How often?
We recommend any hydrotherapy bath system (AirMasseur®, Whirlpool, or MicroSilk®) should be flushed and cleaned with Jason® Cleaner or a non-foaming detergent at least once a month.
12. Why aren’t MicroSilk® and its combinations available in all bath models?
Each type of hydrotherapy equipment has different space requirements. Some of our baths do not provide enough room under the perimeter of the bath to accept the MicroSilk® and/or other equipment.
13. Does a MicroSilk®only Bath purge itself?
Yes. The MicroSilk® system is designed to drain itself after each use, and does not require an air/power assisted purge.
14. Does a MicroSilk®-only Bath have a Blower?
No, MicroSilk® produces the billions of micro bubbles by pressurizing a small volume of water and releasing it back into the bathing well at near atmospheric pressure.
15. Does a MicroSilk®-only Bath have a heater?
No; A MicroSilk® bath maintains the temperature of the bath water through the heat energy created when the micro bubbles implode (collapse) beneath the water’s surface.
16. Is it Multi Speed?
No; A single speed is all that is required to create micro bubbles.
17. What is the Voltage Requirement for MicroSilk®?
18. What is the warranty?
The warranty for MicroSilk® baths are the same for other Jason® forma and Designer Collection baths, which is twenty five years on the shell and 3 years on the mechanical and plumbing systems.
