If you’re elderly or experience mobility issues from day to day, getting around the house and attending to daily tasks can be a little more challenging than it used to be.

Our popular and affordable American walk-in tubs are a fantastic place to start. In this post, we’ll answer all your questions about these special bathtubs and how they operate.

What are walk-in tubs?

A walk-in tub is a bathtub with an accessible locking door, meaning that you can enter the bathtub and sit comfortably within it without having to lean over or risk a fall. They are absolutely crucial for those who may be encountering mobility issues related injuries, health conditions, or age.

What styles are available?

We believe our American Tubs Walk-in Tubs are by far and above the best walk in tubs on the market. Not only are they affordable and provide great value to our clients, but thanks to their triple gel coat finish providing a protective layer and beautiful aesthetics that conform well with any home, this is far and above the best option for those who care about craftsmanship and quality.

What features come with walk-in tubs?

Often, a transferable seat is provided to help you more easily sit down in the tub without having to lay on your back. This means you can enjoy all the benefits of a wonderful bathtub without having to worry about overextending yourself. Some walk in tubs also come with spa therapy features for a more calming and nourishing experience.

How do I use walk-in tubs?

Walk-in tubs are simple and safe to use. Simply enter the tub, and close the sealed door behind you. Use the transferable seat to find your most comfortable seating position, and turn on the taps. Make sure to regulate the temperature using the associated tool to find your most comfortable spot. Remember to fill the tub to the appropriate level, and apply your bath lotions as needed. Enjoy a comfortable, relaxing bath. When finished, drain the water completely, open the door, and exit.

How long does filling and draining a walk-in tub take?

As you will need to be sat within the tub when filling and draining your bath, it may feel as though this process takes a little longer compared to a conventional tub. Our walkin tubs are rated to fill 18 gallons per minute at the 60 PSII, so the average fill can take 3-4 minutes. Our tubs are rated to drain at 110 seconds in a perfect situation. There are other variables that can effect the filling and draining. However, this allows you to ensure the perfect temperature, as well as giving you time to relax and feel comfortable before being exposed to the water. This way, you control every aspect of your experience.

Why American walk-in tubs?

We believe American walk-in tubs are by far the most valuable and cost-effective tubs out there. They offer all of the premium features you may otherwise expect except at half the cost of premier retailers. That’s why we have decided to become an exclusive dealer for their tubs in the Houston market.

How much will this cost?

Depending on the size of the model you opt for and its installation necessities, your American walk-in tub can differ in price. For the most accurate quote, please use our contact form to get in contact today and receive your free in-home consultation, with no obligation required!

Can I schedule a walk-in tub installation alongside a remodeled bathroom?

Yes. In fact, this can help us more easily establish beautiful and accessible surroundings for your walk-in tub, making sure every level of its utility and aesthetic are measured with the rest of the room. Feel free to contact us to see what your options may be.

Who is a walk-in-tub suitable for?

Our walk-in tubs are suitable for anyone who may wish to enjoy more accessibility in taking baths, not necessarily relegating themselves to only use wet rooms or shower-limited efforts. We find that while they are suitable for anyone with these requirements, the elderly tend to give us the most glowing and appreciative feedback. It’s not hard to see how American walk-in-tubs can really help unlock the autonomy of those who value their me-time.
