What you need to consider before buying a walk in bath in London

Taking the challenge out of bathing

Walk-in baths are highly recommended, especially for older people with mobility problems. It allows them to take their bath safely and independently.

A typical shower poses a danger not only to older adults but everyone. A walk-in bath on the hand prevents slipping and falling in the bath. However, there are so many options available at different prices, features, and choosing one can be a little confusing.

Here are some things you should consider before spending your money to install a walk-in bath;

1. Size

Although walk-in baths vary in sizes and shapes, many are modelled to fit the size of your standard bathtub. The average bathtub is about 60 inches long. However, you can have it designed to smaller or wider sizes depending on your needs. For example, a wider size would be more convenient for a person in a wheelchair.

Another thing to look out is whether the size of the tub would easily fit into the doorways or hallways in your home. If the tub is too large for the door, it would be impossible for the installers to get it in.

2. Door Options

Most walk-in baths have inward door options. This type of door requires little space because the door swings inside instead of outside the bath. However, it may be inconvenient for large people or people who use wheelchairs. You may want to go for baths with outward openings in situations like this. They take up more space but are easier to enter.

3. Quality

Another factor you need to consider is the quality of the walk-in bath you’re getting. You should do some research to find out about various products and check out reviews from previous buyers. Also, ensure that you choose a tub with a lifetime leakproof and lengthy warranties on the tub, door, and operating system.

4. Fast Fill and Drain

One disadvantage with walk-in bathtubs is that the bather needs to sit in as the tub fills and drains. This can be a little inconvenient and chilly. However, you can go for models that have fast-filling faucets and pump-assisted drainage systems, which speeds up the process.

5. Budget and Pricing

Walk-in tubs are more expensive than standard tubs. It is best to consider everything you would need in a walk-in tub now and in the future. It would be quite costly if you get a walk-in the tub now only to realize you need a different model.

Also, note that walk-in tubs will come with additional costs for installation, and you may want to add this while planning your budget. Usually, the model and size determine the installation costs. Small models generally require lower installation expenses.

One last thing to keep in mind is how you’d be handling the installation process. Some companies that deal with walk-in tubs already have professionals that can handle the installation. Other times, you may need to source for a professional installer yourself.

When buying a walk in bath, it’s best to have professionals handle the installation. At Aquability, we have fully trained installers that would install the most beautiful and functional walk in baths within a day, with no mess and no fuss*.
