Can I choose the color / style to match my interior decoration?

Yes. Walk-in baths can be personalized to your preference. Check with the producers about Texas alternatives. Colours which are uniform with the majority of toilets are only offered by some. Choosing the right walk-in bathtub for you means discussing the number of sizes, fashions and layouts to ensure it suits your own special needs and room requirements. Since most makers make tubs in white and cream, you might have to pay an added fee for a custom shade.

Is there any additional structural support needed before installation?

Many walk-in bathtubs are mounted to a stainless steel welded support framework with leveling feet that's included with your bathtub that was purchased. The flooring in the toilet should have a structural support strength that transcends the weight of the bathtub in addition to the weight of the water. Our Brownsville installer will check to determine if the floor is level and otherwise if it's not, then they will use the leveling legs to adjust the degree of the tub. Obviously, the previous tub will have to be eliminated. In addition, the if replacing the wall or tile in the region will have to be removed.

How do walk-in tubs drain?

Some systems apply a gravity only drainage system, while other makers offer power-assisted drainage systems. Normally, the drainage system in a walk in bathtub is attached to the standard tub drain, which is threaded into a flat conduit called a waste shoe. The shoe is sealed with a foam washer or putty under its flange. Comparing double drain alternatives to quick drain choices is vital when considering that most walk-in baths take between 2 and 3 minutes to drain which demands the temperature in the room be comfortable while they wait. Some features may cost you more, so it is almost always advisable to ask. Eventually, get to know the difference between frameless baths since because they don't alter the drain height of your existing tub frameless tubs tend to empty quicker than framed tubs and framed tubs. Framed tubs are assembled on a steel frame as well as the bottom of the bath is hung off the ground. Frameless baths are designed with an extra-strength mold that does not need a steel frame and the underside of the tub is not hung in the air.

Will a tub like this add to my Brownsville home’s resale value?

Should you live in a Brownsville retirement community, installing a walk-in bathroom may raise the value of your home. It probably will not raise the value of your dwelling. Since changes to your bathroom do not normally raise the value of your house, the cost may be qualified for the medical expense deduction for tax purposes both federally and in Texas if the main purpose of the improvements is to accommodate a residence to the handicap of the taxpayer, their partner or dependent living there.

Why are these tubs so much more expensive than normal tubs?

Mainly you are paying for a list of safety features that are unavailable on a regular bath. These safety features are built into walk in baths for persons with limited mobility to reduce the chance of falling down. An important aspect of walk in tubs is that there is a low step threshold to allow a user to readily enter into the tub unconcerned about the conventional high wall of a regular bathtub. The walk-in bathtubs also generally contain a cleaning function, jet therapy, and improved drain options. Also, one of the reasons why the cost changes among the walk in baths is that the tubs are custom made depending on an individual 's needs rather than factory copied, so you could discover a bathtub that is specifically made for someone who wants wheelchair accessibility, a bath that fits a larger individual, or a soaker tub with jets.

About how much will one of these tubs cost to get installed?

The setup can really cost you about $1,500-$3,000 to be installed in Brownsville. Occasionally the cost of the installment as well as the unit is a better investment than paying for a caretaker.

Are these tubs as easy to clean as normal tubs?

They're simple to wash, but unlike regular baths, it is a good idea to keep a daily cleaning habit with a walk in tub following manufacturer's recommendations and using the right products. You want to actually make sure with a walk-in bath that you remove scum and spots to safeguard the surface. Get into the habit of wiping down the wet surfaces after each use to help avoid the build up scum, that will need more scrubbing afterwards. Weekly, use cleansers to wash your walk-in tub. Products that address your specific water blot and deposits should be considered as well as any indicators that these products may ruin the finish on your own bath. You want to familiarize yourself with the very best cleaning techniques for your sort of tub since tubs are usually either acrylic or fiberglass. Fiberglass can readily dull and is porous and fragile and blot. Acrylic is non-porous and simple to wash. Additionally, if the weather permits, air the room out so that it does not remain humid. Some manufacturers advise that you open your own bathroom window for an hour every day to let moisture escape.

Do these tubs use more water than conventional tubs?

Yes. A walk-in bathtub is not usually shorter than an average bath tub, which contains about 2 1/2 feet of water on average. Some manufacturers say that you simply use exactly the same quantity of water as a standard shower if a typical shower is 7 minutes and you use 7 gallons of water a minute. Many of the walk in baths on the market have a 40-80 gallon capacity. Actually, many manufacturers recommend that you have a hot water tank that accommodates at least 50 gallons, even though some tubs will operate effectively should you fill them with 40-60 gallons.

Will Medicare cover the cost of equipment and installation in Texas?

Medicare will not cover walk-in bathtub gear and installation costs in Texas, since they're house alterations, not durable medical equipment. Durable medical equipment will not include physical changes to a home, simply medical equipment and materials which are used to help a patient in and out of bed or a chair, or make use of a shower or bathtub safer and easier. Consumer Affairs indicates that you may wish to contact Medicare to see if (for freedom safety reasons) a walk-in bath is warranted to ascertain if the equipment may be partly compensated. More often than not, they won't cover it. However, if you are qualified for Medicaid, your state's system may provide you with some financial assistance for a walk in bath. You may qualify for a House and Community Based Service (HCBS) waiver to play for specific specialized medical equipment and availability adjustments. If you're a receiver of Medicare and Medicaid, you should also consider the Double-Eligible Specific Needs Strategy. This strategy is a portion of the Medicare Advantage plan for dual eligibles. The Special Needs Plan (SNP) or Medicaid may consider your qualification if you can show that a walk-in tub is medically necessary, not merely a convenience, or as a prevention in the case of a fall, together with a written prescription that describes the need for an individual to remain residing in their own residence. Medicaid provides a whole record of waivers applicable to the elderly that we recommend that you review. Additionally, contact your Brownsville or Texas Area Agency on Aging (AAA) to explore Medicaid Waivers and financial options for long term care.

What are some of the benefits of getting one?

The main benefit is the fact that it facilitates your head in case you have mobility issues, because depending on your situation, you have trouble getting into the bath with no low step threshold or can slip on a regular bath. By making washing easier, the design of a walk-in bathtub may also make it much more convenient for people who you depend on in your own life and help you live more independently. Sliding shower doors can present a danger to elders or those with mobility problems and the door for a walk-in tub is conveniently made for ease of use. Besides the advantages of availability and security, living alone in Brownsville is a real issue for individuals experiencing freedom issues. Other benefits include improved comfort given all the attributes that are available to you personally. It alleviates the distress associated with ailments that are common.

Can I make one of these myself?

Yes, but most people do not start from scratch, they begin with a tub conversion kit. There are instructions available on how to convert your existing bathtub into a walk-in bath. We recommend that you simply understand just how to use the tools that are correct in order that you just do not end up with a non-working bathtub. There are companies that understand the way to turn your disability that is tub more as well as your home reachable for less of an investment than alternatives. As Texas installers, we know how to direct you in the right direction, so please ask us for a consultation so we are able to assist you to make your house meet your present wants, particularly if you've recently become disabled or are providing an aged individual care-giving in their house or your residence.
