Walk-In Bathtubs FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
We get calls every day from folks who would like to purchase a walk-in bathtub for themselves or a loved one, but just don't know where to start. Because walk-in tubs aren't as popular as standard tubs, and because showrooms aren't available in every region, the best place to search for walk-in bathtub and walk-in shower information is online or over the phone. For more information on Independent Home Products, LLC's walk-in bathtubs simply call (888) 365-3855, or see answers to FAQ below.
Below are common questions we are (FAQ) frequently asked about our custom walk-in tubs and showers:
What size walk-in tub should I buy? Unless you will require a tub to fit a full-figured person, or have a smaller than average space for a tub (but we have a solution for that, too), Independent Home Products, LLC has several options for walk-in bathtubs that will fit your space. Our walk in bathtubs generally fit into a standard tub opening. The most popular tub size we carry is 30" x 52". It is designed to fit a standard bathtub/shower stall. This model comes in standard and wheelchair accessible models, and some of our units are also Hoyer lift capable.
What if I require a larger sized walk-in bathtub? We can accommodate full figured people with our 33" x 44" large walk-in-tub. It is designed for folks who weigh over 300lbs. There will be a greater space requirement in your bathroom and you may need to upgrade your hot water tank.
What if I'm not sure what type of walk-in tub I need? Not a problem! Independent Home Products, LLC offers free in-home consultations. We'll schedule a time to meet with you and take a look at your bathroom. We'll take all necessary measurements, and then give you options of walk-in tubs that will work within your existing space.
What is the difference between regular and wheelchair accessible walk-in bathtubs? It really comes down to the door. Our wheelchair accessible models come with an outward swinging door, which makes transfers onto the bath bench much easier for people who use a wheelchair. Keep in mind, more space will be required for this model than for the standard, inward swinging door.
What other features are available? Independent Home Products, LLC Our tubs come with a variety of features for performance and comfort. Just a few of the available options include:
