    How to choose walk-in tubs in Lansing

    Lansing skyline

    Walk-in tubs have doors that open to a shallower step, allowing the user to easily step in, sit down in a built-in chair and bathe comfortably. Most walk-in tubs have other standard safety features, like grab bars and non-slip surfaces.

    Walk-in tubs are designed to benefit seniors who make up 11 percent of Lansing’s population. They can also be helpful for others with mobility problems. About 14 percent of Lansing’s population under 65 has a disability.

    Walk-in tubs can generally fit in the same space as a standard bathtub and can be installed in as little as one day. The tubs generally use about 50 to 55 gallons of water. If you purchase a higher-capacity tub, you may need to install a larger water heater.

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

    Type, size, brand, customization and features are factors that determine the cost of a walk-in tub. A basic walk-in soaking tub usually costs between $2,000 to $5,000. If you decide to purchase a hydrotherapy tub, which uses jets to provide a high-pressure massage, the cost averages between $5,000 and $7,000. Models that incorporate hydrotherapy and aerotherapy, or bariatric models for larger individuals, can start around $10,000 and go above $20,000.

    Installation may be included in the price of a walk-in tub, or you may pay separately. Installation costs average around $1,500, but may be more or less depending on whether electrical, plumbing or other work is necessary. Most walk-in tub companies provide a free in-home consultation to help you determine the best fit for your bathroom.

    Most walk-in tub companies in Lansing offer financing options for customers to pay monthly. Additionally, some have discounts available for groups like seniors or veterans.

    Although Medicare does not consider walk-in tubs durable medical equipment (and therefore will not provide coverage), Michigan’s Medicaid program may offer help for home transition programs. If you have long-term care insurance, it’s worth checking to see if walk-in tubs may be covered.

    After your walk-in tub is installed, you can maintain it similarly to how you would clean a traditional tub. The manufacturer will provide instructions for regular cleaning. You will also want to be familiar with your walk-in tub’s warranty. Many tubs come with limited lifetime warranties, with different coverages for different components.
