How to choose walk-in tubs in Denver

Denver Skyline

Walk-in tubs are designed to prevent falls and other accidents, which are common in bathrooms. They can be particularly useful for the nearly 12 percent of Denver’s population over 65, or for the six percent with a disability. Many walk-in tubs also offer therapeutic benefits and relief from aches and pains.

Walk-in tubs usually fit in the area where an existing standard tub is located, but for larger models, more space may be required. It may also be necessary to make updates to electrical or plumbing systems, like installing a larger water heater. A basic walk-in tub uses about 50 to 55 gallons of water, more than an average bathtub.

The following features ordinarily come standard with a walk-in tub:

  • A door and low step-up, usually between 4 and 7 inches, makes it easier for those with limited mobility to enter.
  • A built-in tub seat, at chair level, offers easy transition into the tub.
  • An anti-slip textured floor is helpful for reducing the risk of falling due to a slick, wet surface.
  • Grab bars provide balance and make it easier to get in and out of the tub with ease and without assistance.
  • A hand-held showerhead allows people to remain seated while bathing.
  • Depth, allowing on average about 2.5 feet of water, provides a spa-like feeling.

When shopping for a walk-in tub in Denver, you will also see many options for types of tubs.

Walk-in tub type Features
Soaker Basic model with safety features; no air or water jets
Aerotherapy Air jets create water circulation and massage-like experience
Hydrotherapy Water jets provide a higher-pressure massage; may also include air jets
Bariatric Heavy-duty walk-in tub built for larger individuals
Wheelchair-accessible Outward-facing door allows easier transition from wheelchair into tub; lower seat
Combination Combination aerotherapy/hydrotherapy; can be further customized with other features like chromatherapy, aromatherapy

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

Walk-in tubs in Denver can cost between $1,500 and $20,000, based on the type of tub, features, level of customization and cost to install. A soaker tub usually costs between $2,000 and $5,000. Many companies will offer installation services — some will include the cost in the price of the tub. The average cost for walk-in tub installation in Denver is about $1,500 or less, but this depends on the amount of work necessary.

To pay for a walk-in tub, many buyers will take advantage of financing options offered by manufacturers, which can include monthly payment plans and low interest rates. Some sellers will have discounts available for seniors, veterans and others.

Medicare in most cases will not cover the cost of a walk-in tub because it is not considered durable medical equipment. Colorado’s Medicaid program may provide reimbursement in certain circumstances, such as for home modification programs, and the Department of Veterans Affairs has housing grants for disabled veterans.

When you purchase a walk-in tub in Denver, be sure familiarize yourself with the warranty. With regular, easy cleaning — the seller will provide cleaning instructions — your walk-in tub should last long-term. But if the tub needs repairs at any point, it’s important to know if you are covered. Many walk-in tubs come with lifetime or limited lifetime warranties.
