How to choose walk-in tubs in San Diego

San Diego Skyline

In San Diego, where about 14 percent of the population is 65 or over and six percent of people under 65 have a disability, walk-in tubs can reduce the risk of falls and other types of injuries, allowing San Diegans to maintain personal independence.

Individuals with physical issues—such as multiple sclerosis, neuropathy or arthritis—can benefit from the safety and accessibility of a walk-in tub. A walk-in tub also provides hydrotherapy benefits. People who are obese and have difficulty in conventional showers and tubs might find a walk-in tub makes bathing easier to manage.

A walk-in tub differs from a conventional bathtub. A door with a low threshold makes it so the user does not require a large step over the side for entry and exit. The user can simply open the watertight door, walk in and sit down on a raised seat. Other standard features can include a non-slip floor, grab bars, anti-scald valve, hand-held showerhead and more.

There are several different walk-in tubs available to buyers in San Diego:

Walk-in tub type Features
Soaker Basic model with no air or water jets
Aerotherapy Soaker with air jets for water circulation; designed to provide therapeutic experience
Hydrotherapy Soaker with water jets for water circulation; provide a more intense massage than aerotherapy
Combination Soaker with both air and water jets; can be further customized with chromatherapy and aromatherapy
Wheelchair-accessible Outward facing door for easier transfer from wheelchair to tub; lower tub seat
Bariatric Larger than standard models; designed for obese individuals

Walk-in tubs will generally fit in the same space as conventional bathtubs. Most companies will offer a free in-home consultation, during which a specialist can examine your bathroom and let you know if any updates will need to be made to plumbing or electrical systems to accommodate a walk-in tub. The standard walk-in tub, for example, can hold twice the amount of water as a conventional tub, which may require you to consider a larger water heater.

How much does a walk-in tub cost?

Standard soaker walk-in tubs in San Diego cost an average of $1,500 to $5,000. Models with added amenities range from $3,000 to $10,000 and higher. Prices typically include installation, but the installation cost can increase if you need to do any updates to bathroom renovation.

Some companies in San Diego offer interest-free financing for qualified customers, and most will offer monthly payment plans. Though Medicare, Medicaid and most insurance will not pay for a walk-in tub, long-term care insurance may offer coverage. Ask about discounts available for seniors and veterans or any available rebates. If you’ve served in the military, it may be worth checking into VA home loans for disabled individuals. Also, keep in mind that a walk-in tub may be tax-deductible.

Many walk-in tubs in San Diego can be installed within a day. It is important that you understand the warranty that comes with your purchase. When shopping, you will see variations of lifetime warranties, limited lifetime warranties and more; be sure to ask if separate components of the tub are covered differently.

To ensure your walk-in tub lasts, follow the simple cleaning instructions provided with your product. Cleaning may be required after each use and on a weekly or monthly basis.
