How to choose walk-in tubs in Cincinnati

Cincinnati skyline

In Cincinnati, almost 12 percent of residents are over 65, with many retiring to neighborhoods like Blue Ash and Mariemont. Among Cincinnatians under 65, 11 percent are living with a disability. Those with mobility issues often find stepping in and out of traditional tubs to be a dangerous experience.

A walk-in tub provides a safer bathing experience. Standard features include a swinging door with a low threshold for entry, a comfortable seat, grab bars, a hand-held showerhead and a non-slip floor.

Your unique physical needs will inform which type of walk-in tub you choose. Options include:

Soaking tub: This basic high-capacity tub is leakproof and offers full-body soaking.

Aerotherapy tub: Air jets circulate water for massage therapy.

Hydrotherapy tub: Water jets provide a more intense massage and spa-like bathing experience.

Wheelchair-accessible tub: An individual in a wheelchair can easily transfer to the tub’s low built-in seat.

Bariatric tub: A larger individual can comfortably bathe in this bigger model.

Many types of walk-in tubs can be installed in a single day in the same space as a traditional tub. In some cases, installers may have to reconfigure electrical or plumbing systems to accommodate the larger water volume associated with walk-in tubs.

How much does a walk-in tub in Cincinnati cost?

Walk-in tubs in Cincinnati range anywhere from $1,500 to $20,000, depending on the model you choose. The cost of an average model with installation may be between $5,000 and $7,000. But if you add features like aromatherapy, chromatherapy or an in-line heater, the price climbs. Most companies offer financing options; qualified customers may find zero-interest payment plans.

In most cases, Medicare, Medicaid or your private health insurance will not cover the costs of a walk-in tub, but you should discuss this with your insurance company to confirm. You can also research government and nonprofit assistance programs, like VA grants or the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio’s Elderly Services Program. Be sure to ask companies about any discounts for seniors, veterans or others.

Once you’ve chosen your tub, the next step is planning installation. The manufacturer or seller may offer professional installation, or you can use your own plumber to install your walk-in tub. Just be sure the plumber has experience installing these sorts of fixtures, and plan between one and two days for a standard installation.

Walk-in tubs require little maintenance, though they will need to be cleaned regularly. They are generally covered by a limited warranty to protect you from manufacturer’s defects, with some models featuring lifetime warranties.
