Walk in Tub Prices
When you are looking into purchasing a safety tub for yourself or a loved one, walk in tub prices are an important part of your buying decision. There are three major costs to consider when adding a walk in tub to your home: tub price, shipping cost, and installation cost.
Walk in tub prices vary from a couple thousand to several thousand dollars based on the model and manufacturer that you choose. There are plenty of cheaply made products on the market today, mostly coming from overseas. This is one of those products where you get what you pay for.
You are looking for a tub that provides you with a safe bathing experience, includes a strong warranty, and gives you the peace of mind that comes with protecting your independence. Sturdy side walls, a built-in grab bar, anti-scald water temperature management, slip-resistant floor, easy opening & closing door that doesn’t leak, and ergonomically designed controls within easy reach while seated all should be standard. Anything less than that simply won’t do.
The shipping cost is a significant portion of having a walk-in tub installed in your home. Tubs are big, bulky and heavy to ship. It’s not something that the UPS or FedEx guy can throw on the back of his truck. Buying a tub made in America greatly reduces this cost. Jacuzzi, Inc. manufactures all their walk-in tubs in their USA-based factory and ships them to your home.
Finally, there’s the cost of installing your new tub. First and foremost, make sure that the tub is sized to fit in the space of your traditional tub that’s being replaced. Cheap tubs, imported tubs and even tubs designed for new construction homes may not be sized correctly for your home, which greatly increases installation costs if they’ll fit at all. Second, there are the installation issues specific to each client’s home to evaluate. The electrical, plumbing and physical layout of the home all play a role in properly and safely installing walk in tubs. So do local building codes and permitting requirements. Finally, there’s the clean up after the installation to make sure your bathroom looks as great as a Jacuzzi walk-in tub will make you feel. (And don’t forget about removing and disposing of that old tub).
