Are Walk-in Tubs Worth the Investment?
A walk-in tub is an excellent investment for those with limited mobility or who are looking to age in place while maintaining their independence. Unlike a traditional bathtub, which has a high basin wall you have to step over to get into and out of the tub, a walk-in tub has a watertight door that will allow you to step into the tub over a low threshold. The door closes, the tub fills with water, and after draining the bath, you will be able to open the door and step out safely, with a significantly lower chance of tripping and falling. If you’re debating whether to install a walk-in tub in your home, consider the many benefits that they have to offer:
- Improved safety – In addition to their low threshold, walk-in tubs typically include many other features that are designed to reduce falls, such as built-in handrails, anti-slip flooring, anti-scald valves, and contoured built-in seating. And, since these features are included in a single tub, you won’t have to worry about the time and money that’s often required to make these modifications to a traditional tub.
- Hydrotherapy options – Walk-in tubs can include hydrotherapy jets similar to what you would find in an outdoor hot tub. Several jets of heated water and air agitate the water and massage the muscles, providing relief for aches and pains while speeding the healing of certain injuries.
Additionally, we can install our walk-in tubs in as little as a day, so you won’t have to deal with prolonged construction in your home.
