Walk-in Bathtub

The Benefits Of A Walk In Tubs

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

Have you ever heard someone say, “Getting old sucks”? Nothing could be further from the truth but realize that age is only a number. As I get older, I’m still filled with passion for making this world a better place for the next generation. One of the downsides to aging is the body starts having its aches and pains. That’s when we look to other avenues to fix those aches and pains. A walk-in bathtub is a perfect solution. Walk-in tubs are uniquely designed for mobility-challenged seniors, as well as those seniors who prefer a soothing hot bath. The design threshold to step over is 2.5 to 7 inches depending on the tub you purchase. Standard bathtub thresholds are 15 inches. The design makes it easy for seniors to step into the tub.

Your Walk-In Tub Has Spa-Like Features That Will Help Soothe Arthritis

Other walk-in features include anti-scald valves, anti-slip floors, built-in seats, and a handheld showerhead. Like any other fixture or appliance, if you’re willing to invest in a higher-end model, you can expect therapeutic spa-like features that will help soothe arthritis. It doesn’t stop there. According to an article in Arthritis Foundation, “If you have a chronic condition like fibromyalgia, arthritis, or lower back pain, try heating things up. Soaking in warm water or applying a heated compress is one of the oldest, cheapest, and safest forms of complementary therapy. Research has shown that heat treatments can loosen stiff joints and relieve achy muscles.”

There Are Bariatric Walk In Tubs For Large People

The walk in tubs vary in size but will fit into the standard tub space of 60 inches. You can expect most tubs to be 3 to 4 feet high with widths between 28 and 32 inches wide. There are bariatric walk-in tubs available that have a larger opening to accommodate people of almost any size. Additionally, the tubs include safety features. Most walk-in tubs have grab bars, textured floors, and low thresholds.

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home.

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day.
