How safe is a Best Buy walk-in tub?
The American Disabilities Act Compliant Grab Bar assists the elderly
or physically challenged bather in rising or sitting in the tub. The elevated
seat is perfect for a safe and easy transition from standing to sitting,
and to rising for exiting the tub. Our walk-in door provides safety and
ease of use, eliminating the risk, discomfort and potential injury experienced
by climbing into a standard tub. Our slim door opens widely, it does not
interfere with entering or exiting the tub. It enables the bather to be
seated before closing or opening the door. No longer does the bather have
to negotiate the door to sit or stand.
Will it fit in my bathroom?
Best Buy Walk-In Tubs are designed to pass through normal door passageways
with no or minimal door disassembly and to be retrofitted into the location
of your existing tub space.
How does the water-tight door system work?
The water tight door uses a special material which, when compressed by
latching the door, forms a water-tight seal. The weight of the water also
compresses the door, which further insures the water-tight seal.
How long does it take to fill and drain?
This all depends on how the existing tub fills and drains. Usually 2-4
minutes. There are other drains on the market that the claim is that the
tub will drain in seconds. Which is perfect in new plumbing. Existing
plumbing is not recommended due to the amount of water pressure being
forced down the water lines at the same time. Over the years water lines
are not able to with stand this type of pressure.
How wide is the door?
18" from side to side in width, which makes for easy entering and exiting.
Can I take a shower?
Best Buy Walk-In Tubs come with a hand-held showerhead that can be mounted
on the wall. Simply press a button to switch from faucet to shower.
What size hot water heater is recommended?
