Frequently Asked Questions
What is the average cost of having a walk-in tub installed?
Walk-in tubs tend to cost between $2,000 and $8,000 for installation because they’re more complex than standard tubs and may require reconfiguration of your plumbing. Each job is different and requires a personalized estimate based on your circumstances.
How do walk-in tubs work?
Walk-in tubs usually feature waist-high walls and a watertight door that swings open to allow entry to the tub without stepping over the side. The doorway lip tends to be only a few inches high and easy to step over. When you shut the door, it creates a seal that keeps water inside the tub while you bathe.
Do walk-in tubs leak?
No. When correctly installed by a professional, walk-in tubs do not leak. The door has tight seals to keep water in the bath and off your floor. If your walk-in tub is leaking, call Mr. Rooter Plumbing for repairs.
