What are the pro’s and con’s of walk-in tubs?
Like any major purchase, we expect our customers to weigh the decision to install a walk in tub in their Greenville, SC area home carefully. These safety and therapy walk-in tubs have a lot of great features, but do operate a little differently than your typical bathing experience.
Here are some common pro’s and con’s of the acrylic walk-in tub installation in your home:
- Deeper water. Rather than the standard 14 inches in a regular tub, a walk-in tub installation provides nearly four feet of water for torso immersion. Seats are placed at a comfortable 17 inch height for easy mobility.
- Safety. Falls are a huge safety concern for those with limited mobility. Walk-in tubs are designed to reduce fall risk.
- Water therapy. Warm water alone has many health benefits. Combined with the jet features in our walk-in tubs, you may feel better and see fewer symptoms from long-term health conditions.
- Easy installation. Trying to adapt a bathroom for mobility issues and aging is expensive, time-consuming, and confusing. Because walk-in tubs are built with these concerns in mind, our solutions are a one-stop shop for increased accessibility in your bathing area.
- Water usage. It’s a common misconception that walk-in tubs use more water than normal tubs. In fact, they use roughly the same amount – around 50 gallons. In fact, a garden tub will use far more water than a walk-in tub option without any of the safety features.
- Fill and drain. Walk-in tubs distinguishing feature is the side door, allowing easy access. This means you have to be inside the tub while you fill and drain. Ella tubs make this process as fast and pleasant as possible. Our fast-fill times are some of the best in the industry and our dual drain technology is number one in the industry for drain time – meaning you won’t sit and shiver waiting for your tub to drain.
- Temperature control. Another common criticism of walk-in tubs is the inability to test the water temperature before entering the tub. Scald prevention valves are available in our walk-in tubs, allowing you to sit in comfort as your tub fills.
- Installation costs. Like any renovation project, converting your bathing area to a walk-in tub is not inexpensive. You won’t find better value, style, and service in the Greenville, SC walk-in tub market than with Surface Bella and an Ella Bubbles.
As you can see, our expert engineering and made-in America level of quality have overcome many of the traditional anxieties associated with walk-in tubs. Not to mention that Surface Bella is a local Greenville, SC company with expert installers. Ella stands behind the tub, Bella stands behind the installation.
