How to choose walk-in tubs in Tucson

Tucson skyline

Every year thousands of people hurt themselves getting into or out of a tub or during bathing, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Particularly at risk are seniors and those with disabilities. Walk-in tubs help lower the chance of these injuries while enhancing the bathing experience.

Walk-in tubs in Tucson come with standard features that make them safer than regular bathtubs:

  • Door with low step-in, allowing the user to transition into the tub with less physical effort
  • Anti-slip floor, offering stability during standing
  • Grip bars, helping the bather maneuver while in the tub
  • Built-in seat, elevated and designed for comfort
  • Hand-held showerhead, making bathing easier while sitting

Beyond these features, many walk-in tubs are fully customizable, with add-ons like air and water jets, lights and aromatherapy, neck rests, high-speed drains, anti-scald valves and self-cleaning systems.

Most walk-in tubs fit in the same space as a bathtub but use more water because of their extra depth, which may require you to purchase a larger water heater. When looking at different walk-in tub companies in Tucson, start by choosing one offering a free consultation to measure your bathroom space and figure out which models will work.

How much does a walk-in tub in Tucson cost?

The cost of a walk-in tub in Tucson depends greatly on the individual model and the amount of work necessary to accommodate the tub in your home. A tub with standard features only, sometimes referred to as a “soaking tub,” usually ranges between $1,500 and $5,000. More sophisticated walk-in tubs with water jets or air baths cost up to $10,000, and luxurious options push the price even higher.

Medicare generally will not pay for walk-in tubs, but Arizona’s Medicaid agency may have programs available to help with the cost. The Department of Veterans Affairs has grants available for veterans and servicemembers. Some forms of private insurance may provide financial assistance or reimbursement for a walk-in tub.

When working with a walk-in tub company in Tucson, ask if you qualify for any special discounts or promotions, and be sure to find out if installation is a separate cost from the tub. The average cost of installation, which takes between one or two days, is around $1,500 when priced separately.

Before taking delivery of a walk-in tub, be familiar with the product warranty. Reputable companies will stand behind the tub and all components, installation and labor for many years, guaranteeing you a safe and enjoyable bathing experience and peace of mind with your purchase.
