Frequently Asked Questions about Walk-in Tubs

Posted on Apr 14, 2013 in accessible modifications

A walk-in tub is a great way to prevent injuries from occurring in the bathroom. Before investing in a walk-in bathtub, you’re likely to have some questions. We’ve put together a list of answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about walk-in bathtubs. What is the best material for a walk-in bathtub to be made of? Walk-in bathtubs are typically made of either acrylic or fiberglass. Although acrylic offers reliability, durability, and longevity, at Accessible Bath Solutions, we believe fiberglass is a better value. Since consumers sit down in a tub, the surface does not wear as it would in a shower, and therefore doesn’t require the features of higher priced acrylic. Is it possible to shower in a walk-in bathtub? Absolutely. With a handheld shower extension mounted to your wall, you can also enjoy the convenience of a shower in your walk-in bathtub. With the simple installation of a shower rod and curtain, you are ready to go!
