What is the tub’s weight capacity?
All of our tubs have a steel reinforced frame and are able to support any individual who will fit into the tub. The structural reinforcement of the frame and system ensures not only that they tub system will accept a great amount of weight, but also that there will be no flex in the door frame. This ensures that there will be no leakage around the door frame.
Why are some of the tubs I’ve seen so narrow?
Bariatric model tubs are available as well. One reason walk in tubs are designed somewhat narrow is that they need to fit through your home’s doorways for installation. Having a wider tub may be a more comfortable option but may also be more costly for installation.
How complex is the hookup?
The actual hookup of the system is relatively uncomplicated if the plumbing is located correctly.

Is this covered by insurance?
This is not covered by insurance. However you are able to avoid sales tax – if you purchase a unit and have it installed by us it is sales tax exempt. If you are only purchasing the unit (and not having us install it) you can still get it sales tax exempt if you have a doctor’s prescription for it.
