Choosing a Walk-In Bathtub

walk in tub provider in baltimoreGetting in and out of the bathtub is an activity that the young and able-bodied take for granted. However, this simple activity can be quite difficult—for the elderly and disabled. Fortunately, walk-in bathtubs make it safe and easy for individuals with limited mobility to enter and exit the tub. Walk-in tubs have a watertight, hinged door built into the side that provides a much lower threshold to step over versus a standard bathtub. Whether you’re choosing a tub for yourself or a loved one, there are some important factors to consider if you want to select the right walk-in tub. Be sure to discuss the following factors with your walk-in tub provider in Baltimore.

Tub Size

The first thing you want to consider is the size of the bathtub itself. Walk-in tubs are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and most will fit into the same space as your standard tub without needing to reconfigure the room. In the event that a walk-in tub is not available in a size that fits your old bathtub space, installers will use extension kits to ensure a good fit.

Safety Features

A hinged door is already a huge safety improvement over standard bathtubs, but there are additional safety features that may be available that can make the bathing experience even easier for the elderly and disabled. Examples of the safety features you should look for in a walk-in tub include safety bars and handles, non-slip surfaces, easy-to-reach faucets and shower handles, and in in-tub seat.

Warranty

With so many different walk-in bathtubs to choose from, how do you know which ones offer the best quality for the money? One good indicator of safety tub quality is a lifetime warranty on the tub, the door, and all the built-in safety components.
