Frequently Asked Questions About Walk-In Bathtubs

How much do walk-in bathtubs cost in Tallahassee?

A walk-in bathtub in Tallahassee typically ranges in price from $1,700 to over $30,000. The price depends upon whether you have it professionally installed by our Florida team, what features you select, along with the quality of the item. The cost also varies depending on whether you choose fiberglass or acrylic bathtubs.

A superb walk-in bath runs between $3,000 and $8,000 installed. Some providers offer monthly payments or a cash bonus.

Do these tubs use more water than conventional tubs?

Some makers say that you just use the same quantity of water as a shower that is standard if a typical shower is 7 minutes and you use 7 gallons of water a minute. Most of the walk-in baths available on the market have a 40-80 gallon capacity. The truth is, many manufacturers recommend that you have a hot water tank that accommodates at least 50 gallons, although some baths will function efficiently should you fill them with 40-60 gallons.

Why are these tubs so much more expensive than normal tubs?

Largely you are paying for a list of safety features that are unavailable on a regular bath. These safety features are built into walk in baths for persons with limited freedom to decrease the possibility of falling down. Model wall heights are typically 37 to 47 inches tall and contain a built in shower seat, textured floor, grab bars, anti-scald valves, in-line heater, temperature controls, and a water-tight door. An important aspect of walk-in baths is that there's a low step threshold to permit a user to readily enter into the bathtub unconcerned concerning the conventional high wall of a regular bathtub. The walk in baths also typically include enhanced drain options, jet therapy, and a cleaning function. Moreover, one of the reasons why the cost varies among the walk-in baths is that the tubs are custom-made depending on a person's needs rather than factory replicated, so you can discover a tub that is especially made for somebody who wants wheelchair accessibility, a bath that fits a bigger individual, or a soaker tub with jets.

Is there any additional structural support needed before installation?

Many walk-in bathtubs are mounted to a stainless steel welded support framework with leveling feet that's included with your bath that was purchased. The flooring in the toilet must have a structural support strength that transcends the weight of the bathtub in addition to the weight of the water. Our Tallahassee installer will check to ascertain when it is not whether the floor is level and otherwise, then they will use the leveling legs to correct the level of the bath. Of course, the last bath will need to be eliminated. Also, the if replacing, the wall or tile in the area will have to be removed.

Check with your Tallahassee homeowner's insurance to make sure it is going to cover you against this kind of damage. You might need a house alteration permit from the Tallahassee, FL building department to set up a bath, particularly when walls have to be eliminated to coordinate with your toilet plans. Above all, you didn't get one AND and if you needed a license your home suffers from damage from the installed walk in bath, your losses may not be covered by your homeowner's insurance.

They're less likely to choose a huge risk by paying all the costs associated with transport as well as the removal of their existing bathtub without guarantee and a bit more investment in quality along with the condition of their purchase. There isn't actually a big marketplace for used plumbing fixtures. Eventually, if you do believe you might attempt to resell your walk-in bathtub, the next buyer might want to be aware of if the lifetime warranty is extended to other owners too or if they are going to need to cover the costs related to a door seal or alternative component damages that may occur with use.
