The Bad

  • Undisclosed Customer Service Information

Undisclosed Customer Service Information

Customers can contact Safe Step via telephone, online chat, or by email. However nowhere on the website does it specify the hours its customer service hours are available. While this is might not bother most customers, it would be nice if the website included this information. Even if the company offers 24/7 customer service, that should be disclosed on the website. 

The Bottom Line

Safe Step stands out amongst other companies in the industry due to its lifetime warranty—which covers all parts of the walk-in tub, including the tub’s door seal, water pumps, heaters, and faucets. However, the company has plenty of other features that make Safe Step a great choice for a walk-in tub or shower. Customers can expect high-quality products with numerous safety and convenience features that will make for a stress-free bathing experience. 

We recommend customers call and get a free in-home consultation and quote to find a bathing solution that works with their unique needs.

This tub is very comfortable. The seal for the door is very solid and does not let out any water. However, as of late, there have been some leaks with the tub that has resulted in a plumber having to come out. I'm not sure if it just wasnt installed correctly, but it's a slight inconvenience.

I think they have a good product but their pricing is too high and while I was able to negotiate a lower price, some of the actions of the company really didn't sit well with me.

It appears to be a well built product. However, it is too expensive for my budget and it doesn't meet my needs.
