Frequently Asked Questions
How much is a walk-in tub installed?
Installation costs depend on your location and how your current tub hookup is configured (or if you need a hookup added). Pricing for walk-in tubs varies by manufacturer, model, and features.
How do walk-in tubs work?
Walk-in tubs have high sides with a door that swings open to allow entry into the tub. When shut, the door seals to keep water inside the tub as you bathe. Once the tub drains, you can simply open the door and step back over the low lip under the door.
How long does it take to drain a walk-in tub?
The average walk-in tub takes between 6 and 15 minutes to fully drain, though some fast-draining tubs can empty in four minutes or less. Call a plumber to check for possible clogs if your tub takes longer than 15 minutes to drain.
