What are pipeless pedicure chairs?

At Aria Chairs, we understand choosing the right pedicure chair plays a key role in providing your customers a high-end experience. One they won’t forget. One they’ll tell their friends about.

Many salon professionals even suggest your chair is the most important piece of equipment in your spa.

Pipeless pedicure chairs are specifically designed to free you up to focus your attention where it belongs. And personally, we think time spent cleaning the surfaces of the foot spa is time better spent on your clients. Not your chair.

What are Pipeless Pedicure Chairs?

All modern pedicure chairs you'll buy these days are pipeless. Pipeless pedicure chairs not only make your task easier, safer, and more sanitary, they can save you time and money.

Why? Because they’re easier to clean, safer, more compliant, and customer friendly. It’s that simple.

Pipeless just means that the whirlpool jet doesn't use any pipes.  That's not to say they don't need any plumbing - they do!

If you're looking for a pedicure chair without plumbing (no supply or drain) you'll need a "portable" or "no-plumbing" chair.

Old fashioned pedicure chairs had pipes to take water from one side of the bowl and shoot it out the other side. The problem was that they were next to impossible to sanitize properly. You needed long brushes to clean out the pipes between every use. And they were a disgusting, messy trap for bacteria.

How Do Pipeless Pedicure Chairs Work?

Pipeless jets are essentially little underwater fans. They sit on the bowl and create a massaging Jetstream for your clients' feet.

Now there's no need for bulky bases around the bowl to cover up the bacteria-filled pipes.


The only pipes used for these chairs are the ones to hook up the spa to water. So you can fill the bowl and a drain to empty it.  Easy.  And less pipes means less leaks, clogs, and other maintenance issues.

Here's a photo of Continuum's pipeless jet on their Echo LE Pedicure Chair:

Easy to Clean

We don't need to tell you how important sanitation is for your salon and what kind of fines you can face if old pipes are improperly cleaned.

That's why pipeless jets are so brilliant - they're super easy to clean.

All you have to do is snap off the removable jets, sanitize them, and put them back on.

You'll still need to clean and sanitize the bowl, but you won't have to get out multiple brushes and spend time on your hands and knees scrubbing the gunk out of the old tubes. 

The time and effort to prep the chair for your next client is cut dramatically.


Sitting in a pipeless pedicure chair, your clients will be able to relax knowing that they're in safe, clean hands.

The risk of infection is far lower than with traditional pedicure chairs. With a pipeless pedicure chair, dead skin cells and bacteria are easily removed, keeping germs and bacteria from affecting your next client through contamination of the chair's water system.

Your clients shouldn't have to be worried that they might get an infection on their next visit.


Busy salons don't have to be a hub of whirring noises. Because pipeless pedicure chairs jets don't use the old pumps to push water through the pipes, they are far quieter.

The jet's motor is so quiet you can barely hear it.

Easier to Maintain

Less things can go wrong with a pipeless pedicure chair because there are fewer moving parts and the water never leaves the bowl. That means less service calls, less trying to find parts, and less bills to pay. Because you know that every day you have a chair out of service is a day that's costing you money.
