Walk-In Baths to Safeguard You and Improve Your Life
Walk-in baths are a great way to improve your quality of life, especially if you have limited mobility issues. And, in addition, many of these baths have luxury features such as a whirlpool or an air bath that can be included with your bath. These hydrotherapy options will give you a safe tub massage with air bubbles or water jets to create the experience of relaxing in a spa. In some walk-in baths, there are even underwater LED lights that add to the relaxation you will experience.
Beyond relaxation features, our tubs help make bathing safer and easier for many people. To help you choose the best walk-in bath for your needs, here are several possible options that we have available.

Walk-in baths are a great option for many types of people. An easy access bath like this can make all the difference to someone in their own home and they come in a wide variety of styles. We often get many questions about these interesting styles of baths so we thought we would answer them here for you.
How do you fill a walk-in bath?
Walk-in baths fill as easily as any other type of bath you might choose. The big distinction between a walk-in bath and a traditional tub comes from the entry. Many people choose to fill a traditional tub and then step into it when it is at a depth and temperature they like.
A walk-in tub has an entry-point with a water-tight seal. You will need to step into the tub first and shut the door behind you to activate this seal. You can then proceed to fill the walk-in bath with a mixer tap to achieve your preferred depth and temperature, as you would with a traditional tub.
Are walk-in baths covered by NHS?
NHS does sometimes cover the cost of a walk-in tub but it can be very difficult to get this payout. They do not consider a walk-in bath to be a piece of durable medical equipment and therefore rarely cover costs. In the rare cases that they do decide to give a contribution, it will be in the form of reimbursement as opposed to credit for an advanced payment.
Are walk-in baths easy to install?
At the end of the day, a walk-in bath is still just a bathtub! It should be no more difficult to install than any other bath you could choose to have. Whether you are opting for a DIY route or you are paying for a professional plumber or bathroom fitter to install your bath, they should have no trouble installing it for you.
The only exception to this is if a bath has a lift in it. However, this is simply because an electrical supply needs to be routed to the bath to power the lift. This will require someone who is specialised in bathroom electrics to install, similar to someone you would hire to fit an electric shower. They need not install the lift for you; all assembly is done by the manufacturers of your chosen bath. Your fitter just needs to make the necessary connections.
What styles of walk-in baths can I choose?
Walk-in baths come in all sorts of styles. You can get ones that are very similar to traditional tubs. These might be better for you if you have a family sharing your home. There are baths with all sorts of doors and heights you could choose depending on your mobility. Some walk-in baths come with seats pre-installed while others use a lift system to help you get in and out. No matter what your mobility needs might be, there is going to be a bath to meet them.
Can I still have a walk-in bath with limited space?
If you have limited space in your bathroom, you might still be able to invest in a walk-in bath. There are many compact options that could easily fit into any space you might have. If your bathroom is on the small side, these could be the perfect option for you!
