Telltale Qualities of a Great Tub

At Heavenly Walk-In Tubs, we know that a walk-in bathtub is no small expense for you or your loved one. That’s why we make all our portable bathtub options with the highest quality, and why our technicians are here to answer any questions you may have about our technology or warranty before you buy.

We encourage all our customers to thoroughly review and inspect our equipment, as we’re 100 percent confident we have products to beat your expectations. What are some of the qualities you should be looking for in a walk-in tub? Let’s take a look.

Top-Quality Materials

The best walk-in tubs are made from materials that do not crack or scratch easily, and we only use these kinds of products at Heavenly Walk-In Tubs. We use only gloss white premium acrylic surfaces, which are both mold- and bacteria-resistant as well as resistant to fading. Our water-tight stainless steel doors and door frames are guaranteed for life.

Anti-Slip Features

All great tubs for seniors should come with features to help reduce the risk of slips or falls. This includes floors, seats, and bathmats, all of which are textured to diminish the risk of slipping even when water is present.

Low-Maintenance

A big part of the purpose of a portable bathtub for a senior is convenience and comfort, but those are diminished if maintenance is constantly needed on the tub. This is where features like anti-bacterial and anti-mold resistance come into play – they cause the tub to need less regular cleaning, along with less long-term maintenance.

Easy Access

All users of a walk-in bathtub should have simple access to buttons, knobs, handles, doors and any other important features of the tub. These should be in safe locations that don’t require any straining to reach and are simple to operate and understand.
