Before buying a walk in tub or spa bath tub in metro Atlanta or north Georgia, become informed by learning about walk in spa bath details. Think through any questions you may have, and measure the bathroom and bathtub areas before you shop. Also, decide whether you would like a soothing massage system including a whirlpools, hydro bath, or a combo massage system and soaking tub. Once you start shopping, consider the different aspects of the walk-in tub or spa bath, such as:
- Tub construction
- Faucets or other hardware
- Main features
- Optional accessories
- Required water heater size
Atlantahomemods.com says, “For those who cannot stand for long periods of time (or at all), the walk-in bathtub allows easy access to bathing without having to hoist oneself dangerously into a traditional tub.” Look for a tub with a grab bar and a seat that is at least 17″ high, so the bather can sit down and get back up easily and safely. (The 17″ seat height meets American Disability Act (ADA) standards.) The minimum required water heater size is 40 gallons.
Warranties & Certifications
Purchase a walk in spa bath with a solid warranty, and look for certifications from the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), Universal Plumbing Code (UPC) Certification, and the Universal Spa Plumbing Code (USPC) Certification which covers plumbing for hydro massage and air massage systems.
