3 Reasons To Install A Walk In Tub

Do you have someone in your home that has trouble getting in or out of the tub? A walk-in tub is a great option for situations like this. It gives the person taking the shower or bath some confidence to do it on their own. Cavalier Builders is a reputable company in Woodland Hills that can help install walk-in tubs. 

What Is A Walk-In Tub?

Walk-in tubs are used to help people who are unable to safely make the step over the side of the bathtub. These people are at risk of tripping, sliding, or falling and hurting themselves. Adults over the age of 65 are more likely to harm themselves while getting in or out of the bathtub. 

How They Work

They work by making it capable of having a door on the side of your tub. You can simply step right into the bottom of it and close the door behind you. The tub is then turned on to fill with water. Walk-in tubs have to be completely drained before you can exit.

Why You Need A Walk-In Tub

There are positives and negatives to every situation. If you or someone in your household are struggling to shower on your own, then a walk-in tub is a positive for you. There are many great things that can come from having one installed in your bathroom. Some great features and reasons why you need a walk-in tub are explained below.

Water Depth

With the design of these tubs, you are able to sit on the seat provided and fill the tub once entering it. A regular bathtub is lower to the ground than these. This makes it where you can fill these tubs much deeper than a standard bathtub. You are able to sit straight up and still be sitting in a good amount of the bathwater.

Gives Privacy Back

People want to take a shower in private. This gives individuals who struggle with this a chance to have that privacy given back to them. In a safe manner that gives them security and confidence. 

Hydrotherapy

Walk-in tubs are most commonly used for people in their senior years. At this age, is when our bodies start to exhibit the most signs of aging. Aches, pains, muscles, and arthritis begin to bother you more and more.

Hydrotherapy is a great feature that is offered in these tubs that can help with these problems. When the jets and the warm water in the tub combines, you can relieve many of these aches and pains that you are having. It is similar to a mini hot tub to soak in.

What is a Walk-In Tub

A walk-in tub is a bathtub with a watertight door that allows you to step into the tub over a low threshold to increase safety while getting into the bath. The door closes, the tub fills with water. When you are done with the bath, the water will drain, allowing you to open the door and step out safely. 

There’s a wide range of models and configurations available to meet the needs of almost every customer and housing situation. Usually, these tubs will go in a corner in your bathroom or will replace your old tub. There are even walk-in tubs available for easy transfer from a wheelchair to the tub seat. 

Benefits of a Walk-In Tub

Walk-in tubs are common for those remodeling their homes to revolve around safety, specifically preventing falls. This is because walk-in tubs are much safer for those who are at risk of failing than regular tubs or showers. You can easily get in and out without having to worry about slipping. Here are some benefits of walk-in tubs:

  • Safety – Over a-third of adults over the age of 65 fall each year and over 80% do so in the bathroom. Walk-in tubs can greatly reduce falls
  • Features – Walk-in tubs can offer far more features than regular bathtubs and showers. These tubs combine over tub seats, add-on handrails, anti-scald valves, and non-slip flooring
  • Hydrotherapy – Warm water can reduce certain aches and pains. It can also increase the speed of healing of certain injuries. Walk-in tubs allow the user to soak in deeper warm water
  • Comparable water usage – Many people think, due to the nature of the walk-in tub, that it requires more water to fill up. However, a standard tub requires 42-80 gallons while a walk-in tub requires 50

There are many benefits to adding a walk-in tub to your bathroom. If you’re remodeling your house to focus on safety, adding one of these to your bathroom is a no brainer.
