How to choose walk-in tubs in Tampa

Tampa Skyline

Tampa is often listed as one of the most popular places to retire, and the numbers back it up: Forbes in 2016 analyzed U.S. metropolitan areas with the highest percentage of those 65 and older, putting Tampa at number one on its list. The number of individuals with disabilities in Tampa, according to the census, is also higher than the national average.

Walk-in tubs provide these populations with a safe and soothing way to continue living at home and bathing themselves. If you have a loved one who lives alone and worry about the potential for bathroom falls, a walk-in tub can provide peace of mind.

A walk-in tub is a bathtub with a door that opens and closes and has a low entry threshold. Other standard features of walk-in tubs in Tampa include:

  • Grab bars, which bathers can hold on to when entering, exiting and using the tub
  • Built-in chair for comfort
  • Non-slip floor surface
  • Shower heads that are detachable and handheld
  • Quick-draining systems
  • Anti-scald technology

Custom features and upgrades may include:

  • Massage therapy
  • Heated backrests
  • Sanitization systems
  • Aromatherapy
  • Chromatherapy

Walk-in tubs in Tampa cost between $5,000 to $7,000 on average, including installation. Depending on the features, it can cost less or significantly more. Installation times depend on your bathroom and the amount of work that needs to be done. During in-home consultations, which many companies offer, a specialist will be able to give you an accurate installation timeline. Make sure it is clear whether installation is built in to the price of the walk-in tub or if there is an extra charge.

Once you have an established price, many companies will discuss financing options with you, including a monthly payment plan. Medicare and Medicaid generally will not pay for walk-in tubs in Tampa, but if you’re a veteran, there may be grants available for the modification of your home.

After you’ve purchased your walk-in tub in Tampa, you won’t have to put too much effort into maintenance. The company you purchase from will give you instructions for cleaning. With minimal care, a walk-in tub can provide you with relaxation and safety for years.
