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

Mostly you're paying for a listing of safety features which are not accessible on a regular bathtub. These safety features are built into walk in tubs for individuals with limited freedom to reduce the chance of falling down. Model wall heights are normally 37 to 47 inches tall and contain a built in shower seat, textured flooring, grab bars, anti-scald valves, in-line heater, temperature controls, plus a water tight door. An important feature of walk-in tubs is that there is a low step threshold to allow a user to readily enter into the tub unconcerned regarding the typical high wall of a regular tub. The walk-in bathtubs also usually contain enhanced drain options, jet therapy, and a cleaning function. Additionally, among the reasons why the price varies among the walk in tubs is that the tubs are custom-made depending on a person's needs rather than factory reproduced, in order to discover a bathtub that's especially made for somebody who wants wheelchair access, a tub that fits a bigger individual, or a soaker tub with jets.

Do these tubs drain normally?

Yes. Sometimes, however, it's important to modify the plumbing depending on the precise location of the drains. Installers may need to add a fitting to the existing wastewater conduit for a walk-in bathtub. Existing plumbing may allow for slower drain times or quicker drain times.

Aetna will not cover walk-in bathtubs under their traditional plans in Arizona. They usually follow Medicare's standards for durable medical equipment (DME) items used in the bathroom. In the event the member is bed- confined or room - confined some DMEs are considered medically necessary, as opposed to a convenience. DMEs are considered medically necessary if it is essential for daily tasks and is primarily medical in nature. Since bathing considered essential and is considered a daily living action, bathroom items which are considered medically necessary if a member is unable to bathe or shower without being seated or unable to transfer to and from a bathtub are listed by Aetna.

How do walk-in tubs drain?

Some systems use a gravitation only drainage system, while other manufacturers offer power-assisted drainage systems. Usually, the drainage system in a walk in bathtub is attached to the standard tub drain, which is threaded into a horizontal conduit called a waste shoe. The shoe is sealed under its flange with putty or a foam washer. Since a bather cannot leave the tub until all the water is drained, the large difference is the fact that since sitting there waiting for the water can leave a bather feeling chilled, makers have tried to decrease the waiting time. Comparing double drain options to accelerated drain choices is significant when considering that most walk in baths take between 2 and 3 minutes to drain which demands that the temperature in the room be comfortable while they wait. Some attributes may cost you more, so it's always a good idea to ask. Finally, get to know the difference between frameless baths since frameless tubs often empty quicker than framed tubs, because they do not change the drain height of your existing bath and framed baths. Framed tubs are built on a steel framework and also the base of the bath is suspended off the ground. Frameless baths are designed with an extra-strength form that really doesn't necessitate a steel frame and the underside of the tub isn't suspended in the air.

Do Walk-In Bathtubs Leak?

Yes, they could leak. Consumers who bought poorer quality fiberglass in a framed walk-in bathtub have reported that their walk-in bath finally demonstrated spider cracking in the ground area and then leaked. Another common complaint from people who bought a lousy quality tub and attempted to save money comes from door leaks. Ensure that the walk in bath is rigid and strong to avoid any flex that inhibits a water-tight door. Additionally any damage that could have happened during hauling can loosen fittings and mishandling and cause leakage. Before utilizing the walk in bath, it's important the installer examine the bathtub properly according to the instruction manual. The water may have problem emptying properly and might cause the door to leak, in case the bath isn't installed level with the supporting attributes supplied. Eventually, be sure to understand the risks linked to the positioning of your walk in bathtub, especially alcoves, since they have specific conditions to prevent leaking.

How do I know these tubs will fully seal and not leak out all over the floor?

Initial testing and appropriate installation should provide you with a leak proof encounter, yet there are events where they experienced flows, that customers report. Under suitable conditions, the door seal should compress making it totally leak proof. Some units comprise another drain below the entry door to help prevent escapes in the event the door does leak. Inquire if this feature is comprised. We highly recommend that you get a lifetime guarantee, because it covers the seal along with the door in the instance of a flow. Some people replace the door seal on a walk in bathtub themselves. In addition, it is very important to take good attention of the walk in tub door when the tub isn't in use to prevent early failure of the seal. Wiping down door jamb and the door seal after each use can preserve the integrity of the water seal. Follow the care as well as maintenance instructions.

Do these tubs use more water than conventional tubs?

Yes. A walk in tub is generally taller than an average bath tub, which includes about 2 1/2 feet of water on average. Some manufacturers say that you just use exactly the same quantity of water as a standard shower if a typical shower is 7 minutes and you also use 7 gallons of water a minute. Many of the walk in tubs on the market have a 40-80 gallon capacity. Actually, many manufacturers recommend that you've got a hot water tank that accommodates at least 50 gallons, although some bathtubs will work efficiently if you fill them with 40-60 gallons.

Will AARP cover the cost of equipment and installation?

AARP isn't a provider of insurance, but contracts with insurance companies to make coverage available to AARP members. AARP doesn't make individuals health plan recommendations and doesn't cover the expense of walk in tubs or some well-being needs. AARP does provide access to healthcare tools and coverage like Medicare Supplement Insurance and other health plans to members as a resource, but member advantages are provided by third parties. Check with the plans which are listed under the membership services of AARP in Arizona.

Is there a way to re-sell the tub once we are done with it?

You can re-sell or locate used walk in tubs being sold online. Yet, a lot of folks typically want to be sure that they're purchasing a walk-in tub that personally fulfills with their needs for the long-term. They are not as likely to choose a huge risk by paying the removal of their present bath and also all of the costs associated with transportation without a little more investment and assurance in quality and the status of their purchase. There's not really a big marketplace for plumbing fixtures that are used. If you are uncertain how long you're going to be at your Tucson dwelling and can't justify a long-term care option of a major walk in tub installation, then there are easy measure retrofits that give you the ability to return the toilet to an unmodified toilet to avoid turning potential buyers away who do not desire to pay for a large removal. Eventually, should you think you might try and resell your walk-in bathtub, the next buyer may 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 connected with a door seal or alternative component damages that may occur with use.
