Our Walk In Tubs – Why Homeowners Choose Them
On the safety benefit side of things, homeowners choose to purchase our walk in tubs because of the natural safety components. With a low-threshold entry, you can literally walk right into your bathtub. Gone are the days of worrying about the high edge of your traditional bathtub and the potential of falling upon entry or exit. Read more about senior bathroom safety facts here.
As you enter your new walk in tub, you can sit comfortable and securely on your ADA compliant seat. With safety features designed with an aging in place mentality at its core, our walk in tubs have angled safety grab bars, non-slip surfaces and easy-lock door handles to make bathing easy again.
The other main reason folks choose to purchase walk in tubs is for the hydrotherapy and pain management benefits. By combining heat, buoyancy and massage, our hydrotherapy walk in tubs invigorate and gently massage your body. This eases away aches and pains and can help manage symptoms associated with arthritis, circulation challenges, fibromyalgia, diabetes and other common heath issues.
The warm water stream relaxes tight muscles and stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.
Beyond pain management benefits and safety benefits, Independent Home walk in tubs offer complete independence and dignity to those looking to maintain a healthy bathing routine, at home, on their own. Here are the top 7 reasons to buy a walk in tub.

You can find over 500 walk in tub reviews from happy customers on ConsumerAffairs with folks from all over the country sharing their experiences with Independent Home.
Here is Anne Marie’s story:
As an educated consumer I have been accused of being obsessive about “doing my research”. The fact that this purchase of a walk in tub was for my mom made me be even more diligent. That’s when I came across Independent Home online. From my initial call with Ari I felt at ease with his concern and desire to accommodate us with whatever we would need. He visited her home and I must say that this is where he belongs …in the home.
As a nurse I am sensitive to the fact that those in the “home care” world must have empathy… He listened intently to the details of mom’s latest fall. He picked up right away on my anxiety given the fact that I live out of town and am trying to do whatever I can to make her home as safe as possible. His calm, caring demeanor allowed me to be able to hear all the information he was sharing with me. After a few minutes with his tape measure he laid out a plan for us. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable with the decisions I needed to make regarding the tub model that we chose.
On installation day my “crew”, Riaz, Roberto and Brian, showed up at the door ready and prepared for the day. I was taken back by their care and respect for my mother’s home… not the usual with my experience with contractors/installers. They listened to me, listened to Ari who had spoken with them before they came and did not stop working for the entire time they were here!! The ancillary concerns I had when I initially met with Ari were carried out by the crew to a T. Roberto went over everything with me during the demonstration of the tub operation and I was thrilled with the entire experience. If you don’t choose Independent Home for your tub purchase and installation I wish you luck. 5 stars does not say enough. Thank you so much IH… Please consider this review a verbal hug!!!
