Anthony’s Sidmar Pro S10 Hydromassage Table Checklist:
The following is my list of things to consider before/during/after installation of your Pro S10 hydromassage table. This comes from years of hydromassage table installs and repairs. - Anthony Engel
- Power outlet: If possible, try to dedicate a circuit to the Pro S10, i.e. avoid plugging in on same circuit as refrigerator, AC, dehumidifier, etc.
- I recommend positioning the long side of your Pro S10 along a wall and then installing a grab bar(s) along the same wall so patients can self-assist with getting on and off the unit. It takes some pressure off the neck, lower back, and shoulders.
- Pallet: While I have handled these on my own using a hand-truck, two people are way better than one for moving this thing around.
- Pallet: Follow Sidmar’s directions for unpacking from box, i.e. lift the unit up and out. Avoid attacking the box with a sharp blade as you want to avoid cutting the Pro S10.
- Once out of the box, follow Sidmar’s instructions for set up. Do NOT plug in the Pro S10 yet.
- Remove metal wristwatch, bracelets, and any other objects that may scratch or puncture the mattress. The material is tough, but I try to be careful. I typically
- I typically remove the three side panels (2 short ones by controls and 1 long one on opposite side) so I can see the inner workings on the bottom.
- Ensure that the heater is in the general vicinity of the black outline.
- Ensure that the mattress is unfurled and that the protective outer skirt is completely spread out as if it is holding the mattress in a box. The outer skirt is your insurance policy against flooding should the mattress become punctured.
- Check all PVC fittings to ensure that they are Hand-Tight (Do Not use a wrench to tighten because the force can crack the fitting). For clinics, I recommend checking these fittings once per month. For everyone else, once per quarter is fine.
- Continue with Sidmar’s instructions to fill the unit. I typically pour the Clar-Lub conditioner in first (so I don’t forget). The unit takes 21 gallons of distilled water.
- While filling, I typically stop (put stopper and cap on mattress fill spout) and reach under the mattress from all sides 2 or 3 times to work out the kinks and to ensure that it’s resting evenly on the table. I also adjust the skirt so that it is not binding and that it is fully encapsulating the inner mattress.
- Once the fill is complete, expel as much air as possible from the mattress. This is a technique that gets better with practice.
- Replace stopper and cap on pour spout. I typically will take a paper towel or clean terry rag and wipe away excess water all around mattress including under it, between mattress and skirt (just lift each corner of the mattress and wipe as best as possible). This makes it easier to spot a mattress leak (highly unlikely but I like to be sure).
- Plug in the unit and you’re ready to test – Without a human. I typically turn the pressure regulator to low and set the timer for 20 minutes. Try not to handle the mattress while it’s running because you don’t want the steel jets to scrape against the inner mattress wall. While running, look above and below and, using a flashlight, look around to be sure you don’t see drips.
- When the unit turns off, lift the corners of the mattress to check for water again. Remember that there could be some residual water that spilled during the fill. Just take your time to ensure that things are dry.
- Now test With human. First: Remove sharp objects from all pockets and belts. The unit should be Off when lying down though if you’re alone then it’s okay to turn it on first. When mounting unit, it is critical that your tail bone is on the hard surface. This will ensure that direct weight is not being placed on the steel jet. While sitting on the hard surface, pivot slowly while lying back slowly until your back is stretched evenly across the mattress and your feet are resting on the footrest.
- For Clinics: if you want to guard against leaks, it is important to guide your patients on the proper way to sit and then recline onto the mattress. Too many times I have had to repair or replace a mattress because a patient placed their tailbone directly onto the jet instead of the hard surface. These unfortunate events are avoidable when staff takes a little time to educate and demonstrate proper technique. Remember to ask patients to remove sharp objects from all pockets and belts.
