Frequently Asked Questions about walk in baths

How much does a walk in bath cost?

When it comes to bespoke walk in baths, the price will vary depending on the scale of the installation process and the type of model you choose. Some walk in baths for the elderly are slightly cheaper than other models, but no matter which type of bath you choose, you will be asked to pay a deposit of 50% before the manufacturing can take place. The deposit can be paid in two instalments, the first of which is payable at the point of order and is normally around £1000. The remainder of this is due after a technical survey has been carried out.

How do you fill a walk-in bath?

Unlike a traditional bath, disability baths are deeper, and before filling the bath, users with mobility issues just need to get into the tub, make sure the door is shut and fill it with water. Before getting out of the bath, you will need to let the water drain away before opening the door.

Is there a difference between baths for the disabled and walk in bathtubs for older people?

Walk in baths are very versatile and can help those with disabilities and older people with limited mobility to easily access the bath. If you are someone with reduced balance or who has difficulty walking, our walk-in bathtubs are the ideal choice.

Where to put a walk in bath?

Most mobility baths have either left-hand or right-hand orientation to allow you to install your easy access bath exactly the way you want it. For more information about our walk-in bathtubs, read our Walk-in Baths and Showers FAQs.
