Our deepest and widest models designed for neck-deep soaking. The ideal choice for users over 6 ft. or those looking for full body immersion.
There are a variety of factors to consider when it comes to pricing a walk-in tub.
Standard installation time for a walk-in or handicap bathtub can run between 1-3 days and the cost will depend upon the State in which you reside and the company you choose to work with.
During your in-home consultation, a representative will assess the walkway from the main entryway of your home, through your house, and into your bathroom. They will take into consideration the size of entryways, hallways, and stairways. They do this to ensure that your new walk-in tub can fit easily through these areas and without the need for retrofitting or modification of existing structures.
American Tubs walk-in bathtubs come with a flangeless design and an extension kit to fit a standard, 60” bathtub footprint. This makes the installation of your walk-in tub less complicated and more cost efficient as it eliminates the need for replacing existing tile work.
Alternatively, if you were planning to replace the existing tile around your bathtub as part of a remodel, you may opt for a flange kit to ensure that your new walk-in tub remains watertight.
Typically, no major remodeling is required; however, in some cases, minor plumbing upgrades are necessary to help the tub fill more quickly. Hot water heaters may also need to be upgraded to ensure your hot water can keep up with your new tub’s capacity. A new, standard water heater can usually be purchased for around $1,000.
You might opt for a tankless water heater, which allows for ample water capacity, but please note that these water heaters can cost upwards of $3500.
If you decide to get a unit with electrical components for therapy systems such as hydromassage, air massage, microbubbles, aroma or chromotherapy, you will need to add a dedicated 15-amp breaker with GFCI grounding to your electrical service.
If you plan to opt for an inline heater, you will need an additional 15-amp breaker for a total of two. Depending upon the layout of your bathroom and access to your breaker box, these upgraded circuits will add to the cost of your overall installation. Be sure to discuss this with the electrician who will be involved in the installation of your walk-in tub.
Luckily, not every installation will require plumbing or electrical upgrades. Many new walk-in bathtubs require only a standard installation.
Make sure to ask your dealer about installation options and requirements before creating your final budget.
