How to choose walk-in tubs in Baltimore

Baltimore skyline

Baltimore is home to 150,00 seniors and people under 65 with a disability. Many live in homes with bathrooms that increase risks of falls and other injuries, especially when entering or exiting the bathtub.

Walk-in tubs provide security and comfort for independent seniors and adults with disabilities. Standard features include a door and low-entry threshold, grab bars, a built-in seat and a non-slip MDoor. Walk-in tubs also have about twice as much depth as a traditional tub.

There are multiple types of walk-in tubs in Baltimore. Some companies will allow you to customize a tub according to your preferences. Costs range from approximately $1,500 to over $20,000.

Type of tub Description Price
Soaker Basic model with standard safety features $1,500 - $5,000
Aerotherapy Soaker with air jets $5,000 - $9,000
Hydrotherapy Soaker with water jets $5,000 - $9,000
Combination Soaker with air and water jets $7,000 - $10,000
Bariatric Wide walk-in tub to accommodate larger individuals $5,000 - $10,000
Wheelchair-accessible Tub with outward-facing door and wide entryway and seat $3,000 - $10,000
Customized Built-to-order; luxury options $9,000 - $20,000

Medicare and Medicaid rarely contribute toward walk-in tubs, but manufacturers and sellers offer financing and discounts. A walk-in tub may be tax-deductible if it is a medical expense.

When purchasing a walk-in tub in Baltimore, be aware of installation costs and considerations. Installation usually costs $1,500 or less. Start with a free in-home consultation where a professional representative will examine your bathroom space, determine which walk-in tubs will fit and inform you if you’ll need any home updates to electrical or plumbing systems. Installation usually takes only one to two days.

Caring for your walk-in tub is easy with regular maintenance. In case any issues do arise, be familiar with the details of the tub’s warranty. Most products come with many years of protection, allowing you to enjoy a safe and luxurious bathing experience along with financial peace of mind.
