How to choose walk-in tubs in Indianapolis

Indianapolis Skyline

Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injury among Americans over the age of 65, one-quarter of whom suffer a fall each year. In Indianapolis, where about 11 percent of the population is over 65 and 10 percent under 65 have a disability, these falls can be common in bathrooms.

Walk-in tubs in Indianapolis can go a long way toward reducing injuries. These tubs come with a watertight entrance door, a built-in seat and anti-slip flooring. This makes it easy for users to step directly into the tub and sit down comfortably. Most tubs also come standard with grab bars and a hand-held showerhead.

Beyond standard features, purchasers have options for types of tubs and add-ons. There are basic soaker models, aerotherapy tubs, hydrotherapy tubs, wheelchair-accessible tubs and bariatric tubs for larger individuals. Custom features might include a neck rest, aromatherapy, chromatherapy, anti-scald valve or an in-line heater to keep water from cooling.

Apart from providing a safe bathing experience, walk-in tubs offer many health benefits:

  • Relax muscle tension
  • Relieve stress
  • Prevent and soothe pain in muscles and joints
  • Promote circulation
  • Enable stretching
  • Reduce the effects of chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia

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

The average cost of a walk-in tub and installation is between $5,000 and $7,000 for a simple soaking tub. Some walk-in tubs are less expensive, while other fully-customized options with all available features can range up to $20,000.

Installation, on average, costs around $1,500, depending on how much work needs to be done to accommodate a new walk-in tub. This may vary if you need to, for example, install a larger water or need other electrical, plumbing or renovation work. Most walk-in tubs will fit in the space previously occupied by a standard tub.

Neither Medicare nor Medicaid will reimburse the cost of a walk-in tub, but there are exceptions in limited circumstances. Many manufacturers and retailers offer discounts for seniors, veterans and others, as well as flexible payment plans. Also, keep in mind that walk-in tubs are tax-deductible if they are purchased for medical reasons.

When you purchase a walk-in tub in Indianapolis, pay attention to the accompanying warranty. These can cover components of the tub differently, or they may be all-inclusive. Some warranties can last as long as you own the tub. As long as you maintain the tub and do the minimal cleaning necessary on a regular basis, your walk-in tub should provide safe bathing for a long time.
