What is a Walk in tub?
A walk in tub is a bathtub that is generally used for the same purpose as a traditional bathtub; however it is designed to provide individuals with a safer, more convenient and comfortable bathing experience. Walk in baths are typically intended to suit those with mobility challenges such as those that are disabled (physical handicaps), the elderly, and/or those who suffer from painful ailments. They were created to meet the needs of individuals who want to bathe independently and securely. Some people purchase accessories for their traditional tub like bath seats, grab bars, etc. in order to try and meet their desire for independence and security in the bath, they find however that those "band-aid" type solutions are not really a solution at all. Traditional baths, even with all of the available accessories, are not designed for those who suffer from mobility problems. This is where walk in tubs come in.
Why choose a walk in tub?
It is estimated that up to 45% of all accidents in the home resulting in "serious injury" occur in the bathroom. For this reason, safety is a key design in a walk in bath tub. Some of the safety features that are part of a walk in tub include a chair-height seat for a comfortable and secure bath, a grab or handle bar which makes it easier to maneuver around your tub, and a non-skid floor to keep the individual from slipping and falling.
Plus, many individuals do not have the upper body strength to pull themselves up after taking a bath and even simply stepping over a traditional 20" bathtub to enter/exit can be a chore. A walk in tub offers a U or V shape door that opens so that you can easily walk in rather than having to step over to get into and out of the tub. These walk in doors are sealed so that they are watertight to keep them from leaking and typically come in right-hand or left-hand configurations to meet the individuals’ specific needs. This is why walk in tubs are often called tubs with doors or step in bath tubs.
Additional Features and Options
A walk in tub can also be used for other purposes than just bathing. For example, walk in-tubs typically offer a whirlpool/Jacuzzi option which puts jet and/or air bubbles right in your bath to be used for relaxation, comfort and to help alleviate aches and pains. Also, because walk in tubs are generally much larger and deeper, they provide a much more immersive bath. Most walk in tubs can be used for bathing and showering and are a perfect blend with an acrylic Bathwraps or Centrelle wall system.
Our walk in tubs give you the versatility to choose a basic package or upgrade to include additional features to customize your bathing experience. You can add chromatherapy to your tub which utilizes LED lights to change the water color or add aromatherapy and introduce the scent of your choosing. One of the most popular options is our patented Minute Drain feature. Instead of sitting (and shivering) for 15 minutes waiting for your walk in tub to drain, our exclusive pump system will have your bath drained in less than one minute for the ultimate in safety and convenience!

Gel coat/Fiberglass Certified Shell
Unlike most tubs that are sprayed fiberglass out of a chopper gun. Therapy Tubs® applies sheets of fiberglass by hand in order to prevent air pockets from forming insuring greater durability. Additionally, this strengthens the gel coat finish and ensures a strong bond between the gel coat and fiberglass.
17” High Contoured Seat
For effortless seating It is important for the seat in the tub to be at least 17” high so that a person can sit down and rise back up easily and safely. The 17” seat height meets ADA standard specifications.
Ridged Formed PVC Piping
Therapy Tubs® Custom Jetting Systems uses ridged PVC piping, other than from the motor, to insure that all the water drains from the system and no residual water remains. Flexible pipes sag in a short time and collect water, mold and bacteria in the lining.
Extreme testing of Therapy Tubs' hydrostatic door seal gives the company the confidence to offer a lifetime warranty on the door seal.
