When should I choose a walk in bathtub or barrier free shower over a tub cut?

When deciding what to do with your bathroom, there are a few options.  The main options are tub cut (lowest cost), barrier free shower (middle ground), Walk in bathtub (higher cost), and a full bathroom remodel (Highest cost, greatest benefits).  Deciding which option is right for you can sometimes be difficult, but if price is the only thing that matters, a tub cut may be right for you.  A tub cut solves the problem of getting in and out of the tub as long as you can still take a 6-7” step.

The walk in bathtub is best if you still want the benefits of bathing in your tub.  The walk in bathtub offers great benefits with its air or water jet systems.  The health benefits of these systems include improved circulation, lowering blood pressure, relieving tension and much more.

The barrier free or low threshold shower is a great option for those who are wheelchair bound and need to be able to roll right into a shower.  These showers can be completely curbless to allow for easy roll in or step in access.  They are great for those who are deciding to age in place for the rest of their lives!

A full bathroom remodel allows for changes to make your bathroom as safe as it can be, including a barrier free shower, pedestal sink, anti-slip flooring, grab bars and much more.  This can also increase the value of your home!

How does the seal tight door work on the walk in bathtub?

The Walk In Tub‘s water tight door seal system forms a hydrostatic seal when compressed by latching the door. Additionally, the weight of water inside the tub further compresses the door seal making it completely leak proof.

Can the walk in bathtub also be used as a shower?

Yes. Our Roman tub faucet set comes with a hand-held extendable shower head which mounts into the deck or on the wall. This allows for the bather to keep the body warm during fill and drain times as well as stand and take a shower if they wish. You can use our tub as a regular shower with the included riser rod, which adjusts, to your preference.

How is the Walk In Bathtub installed into my existing bathroom?

You don’t need to remodel your bathroom since our tubs fits into a traditional 60-inch tub space. We also make several walk-in tub models and sizes to fit any existing condition. Our tubs come in both right hand and left hand models to accommodate any bathroom layout.

Is there a warranty with my walk in tub?

Most of our tubs are covered by a lifetime warranty for the stainless steel frame, the tub mold, door, door seal and the door gasket. Check our warranty page for details

What kinds of tests are performed on the walk in tub before their shipped?

All of our tubs are inspected in our factory prior to shipping; no detail or function is overlooked. The pump and jets are tested for 24 hours in your tub for leaks, malfunctions and overall performance. Once your tub is fully functioning, and can be covered under our comprehensive lifetime warranty, it is drained, dried and carefully crated for shipment.

Who handles installation of the walk in bathtub?

We do. You sit back and relax. We’ll take care of everything for you.

Do you offer jetting systems on walk in bathtubs?

Yes, we offer 2 styles of jetting systems. The first is the air jet system. This system pushes warm air through the jets to provide a soft, gentle,bubbling massage, it also comes with a three speed control variable motor. The second jetting system is like the traditional whirl pool, allowing water to be pushed through the water jets. This type produces a bit more intense massage, water is pushing through the jets and as well, has a three speed motor. We do offer most tubs with either or both systems.
