In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the common myths that have formed surrounding walk-in bathtubs and the real information needed to correct them. Walk-in tubs have become far more popular in recent years, but this also means a wider array of misinformation has built up about them in certain misinformed corners.
At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we’ll ensure you’re fully informed with only the facts on all our portable walk-in tub products, including addressing any misconceptions you’re operating under when it comes to the benefits and services our tubs provide. In today’s part two of our series, we’ll go over a few additional myths that have arisen about these products, setting you straight so you have the proper information moving forward.
For some reason, many simply assume walk-in tubs will take far longer to fill and drain than their traditional bathtub counterparts. We’re not sure where this myth came from, but similar to maintenance areas we went over in part one, it’s simply not true – they fill at the same rates as other tubs, with the only differences being changes in dimensions if you choose a larger or smaller walk-in tub than a previous bathtub.
In addition, our walk-in bathtubs are meant to fill and drain quickly. They come with both fill and drain hoses included, plus our revolutionary Quick Connect Box that is easily installed and allows for filling and draining without using any hoses at all. Our tubs can drain in as quickly as 90 seconds, meaning you won’t be wasting your time sitting in lukewarm water.
Even for those who are somewhat impatient and don’t want to wait a minute or two while the tub fills, there are many additional features of walk-in tubs that assist here. From heated backrests to handheld showerheads and other features, it’s easy to stay comfortable during the minute or two you spend waiting for the requisite hot water to fill up in the tub.
Finally, a common myth regarding walk-in tubs is that they’re too expensive to purchase. Those using this line, however, generally aren’t considering the long-term investment nature of these tubs – they offer not only convenience, but also safety, hydrotherapy features and several other distinct benefits. In addition, they often help families avoid the exorbitant costs of assisted living services by allowing seniors and those with mobility issues to remain independent in one of the more difficult daily areas often facing such individuals.
