Frequently Asked Questions About Walk-In Bathtubs

Are these tubs as easy to clean as normal tubs?

They are not difficult to clean, but unlike routine tubs, it is advisable to keep a daily cleaning habit with a walk-in tub using the products that are appropriate and following manufacturer's recommendations. You want to really make sure with a walk in bath that you remove spots and scum to protect the surface. Get into the habit of wiping down the wet surfaces after every use to help prevent the build up scum, that will demand more scrubbing later. Weekly, use cleaners to clean your walk-in bathtub. Products that address your particular water spot and deposits ought to be considered as well as any signs that these products may ruin the finish on your bathtub. Since baths are generally either fiberglass or acrylic, you need to familiarize yourself with the very best cleaning methods for your type of tub. Fiberglass is brittle and porous and can easily dull and spot. Acrylic is nonporous and simple to wash. Additionally, if the weather permits, air the room out so that it doesn't stay humid. Some manufacturers recommend that your bathroom window opens for an hour every single day to let moisture escape.

How do walk-in tubs drain?

Some systems use a gravity only drainage system, while other manufacturers offer power assisted drainage systems. Usually, the drainage system in a walk in bath is attached to the standard bathtub drain, which is threaded into a flat pipe called a waste shoe. The shoe is sealed with a foam washer or putty under its flange. Comparing double drain options to accelerated drain choices is important when considering that most walk-in baths take between 2 and 3 minutes to drain which requires the temperature in the room be comfortable while they wait. Some attributes may cost you more, therefore it's almost always a good idea to ask. Finally, get to know the difference between frameless baths and framed baths since frameless tubs often drain quicker than framed tubs, because they don't alter the drain height of your existing tub. Framed tubs are made on a steel frame as well as the bottom of the bath is suspended off the ground. Frameless baths are made with an extra-strength mold that does not necessitate a steel frame and the underside of the bathtub isn't hung in the air.

Consumer Affairs indicates that you may wish to contact Medicare to see if (for freedom safety reasons) a walk-in bath is justified to determine whether the gear may be partially compensated. More often than not, it won't be covered by them. But if you are eligible for Medicaid, your state's program may offer you some financial assistance for a walk-in tub. You may be eligible for a Home and Community Based Service (HCBS) waiver to play for specific specialized medical equipment and accessibility adjustments.
