Areas to Consider When Comparing Tubs

At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we’re proud of our quality and reputation. Every portable tub we create is crafted with the highest care and dedication, and we’re confident our walk-in tubs stand out from the competition.

We’re so confident, in fact, that we always encourage our customers to shop around. We want you or your loved one to experience the maximum comfort levels, and while we’re confident you’ll find those with us, you have every right and obligation to check all your available options. What are some of the qualities you should be looking for as you shop various walk-in tub options? Let’s take a look.

Quality

Ideally, you should purchase from a vendor like us – one who offers a lifetime warranty on the product. We cover everything from the shell and frame to the seal and finish of the door, and all fittings and components are included as well. Be sure to take a careful look at the warranty before you purchase any tub, and ensure it covers the areas you consider most important.

Doors

Walk-in tubs generally have doors that open inwards, to allow for maximum space in the rest of the bathroom. However, options also exist for someone who is confined to a wheelchair or who is considerably large – a door that opens outward might be better in some of these cases. Be sure you’re considering space in your bathroom when it comes to the door opening direction, however.

Water Options

Consider the water-related options that come with your tub. Most basic options include a soaker tub, and our deluxe portable tubs offer 10 water massage jets plus an in-line water heater.

Filling and Draining

Finally, consider the rate at which water fills and drains. Understand whether the tub can or cannot be filled without someone inside it, and whether it must drain with the user still inside (many follow these basic safety procedures). If the temperature is a concern, consider a tub that fills and drains very quickly.

At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we’re confident we set the industry standard in each of the above areas. Contact us today to learn more about any of our walk-in tubs.
