How to choose walk-in tubs in Milwaukee

Milwaukee skyline

Falls are the number one cause of injury among older Americans; one occurs every second of every day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Many take place in bathrooms at home while getting in out or out of the tub or during bathing.

If you’re concerned about yourself or a loved one with mobility issues using a bathtub safely, a walk-in tub in Milwaukee is a great solution. These tubs usually fit in the same space as a traditional tub but have an extra one to two feet of depth and numerous safety features:

  • Swinging door and low step-in threshold
  • Grab bar(s)
  • Non-slip floors
  • Built-in seat
  • Anti-scalding regulation
  • Overflow drain

Walk-in tubs also can help treat symptoms associated with a range of medical conditions and ease aches, pains and stress.

When shopping for walk-in tubs in Milwaukee, you’ll come across different types of tubs, from basic soakers to fully customized luxury tubs.

Type of tub Description Price
Soaker Basic model including standard safety features $1,500 - $5,000
Aerotherapy Soaker with air jets $5,000 - $9,000
Hydrotherapy Soaker with water jets $5,000 - $9,000
Combination Soaker with air and water jets $7,000 - $10,000
Bariatric Larger walk-in tub to accommodate heavier individuals $5,000 - $10,000
Wheelchair-accessible Tub with outward-facing door and wide entryway and seat $3,000 - $10,000
Customized Built-to-order; luxury options $9,000 - $20,000

Be sure to ask about any discounts offered by walk-in tub companies, as well as options for financing, like a monthly payment plan. Medicare, Wisconsin’s Medicaid program and private health insurance generally do not pay for walk-in tubs, but long-term care insurance may. Talk to your provider to be certain.

Installation of most walk-in tubs in Milwaukee takes place in one to two days and is usually provided by the same company. Find out if it is included in the cost of the tub or is extra; installation, on average, costs $1,500 or less. In Milwaukee, you may need a permit to remodel a bathroom; call 414-286-8210 to learn more.

Walk-in tubs require easy, regular maintenance and come with multiyear warranties. The coverage may differ for different components.

If you are interested in a walk-in tub in Milwaukee, consider the companies listed on this page. Start with a free consultation, where a specialist will give you options based on your personal needs and the setup of your bathroom.
