Usually, people buy walk in tubs out of a need for safety and not out of a desire for more comfort and luxury. When choosing a walk in tub company, you’ll want to invest most of your money in getting the best safety features available in the industry.
Your tub should include anti-slip floors, support bars, a handheld showerhead, and of course, a built-in seat. In addition to safety, there are many features that can greatly add to the comfort of walk in tubs.
Consider buying a tub that has an advanced drainage system and fast-filling faucets to make the process quicker and more comfortable. Since you have to remain in the tub for the duration of filling and draining, adding this feature is worth the trouble.
Most walk in tub companies are professional and treat their customers with the respect they deserve. This doesn’t mean there
aren’t companies and dealers out there trying to take advantage of you.
To ensure that the company you choose isn’t trying to sell you short, read reviews carefully. Try to get a good idea of how the majority of customers felt about their purchase. By staying on top of peer reviews, you can avoid making the same mistakes as others and maximize your chance of getting the best deal.
Make sure you aren’t being short changed on the warranty. There are many companies that provide lifetime warranties. As a rule, choose a company that has a warranty longer than 10 years.
Some walk in tub providers have return policies as well, so ask your preferred company about the possibility of returning products that don’t meet your standards.
