Granted seniors are rapidly discovering the many benefits of owning of a step in tub, there are also downsides that customers should be aware of before making this type of investment. Since these specialty bathtubs are designed to potentially enhance safety and make entering the bathtub easier and less difficult; the bather must be inside of the bathtub with door shut and sealed before filling the tub.
The downside is, typically the person taking the bath will have to sit there undressed while the step in tub fills with water. For some bathers this can be somewhat unpleasant, uncomfortable and cold. In addition, drain time can be a critical component to this as well and bathers that have walk in bathtubs with longer drain times may be more prone to getting cold.
Fortunately, Aging Safely will now be offering these unique walk in tubs that have heating elements designed to take the chill out while waiting for the water to fill.

This unique heating element isn’t found on standard walk in bathtubs and is factory installed with excellent manufacturer warranties. Bathers will be able to have the pleasure of being warmed by the element as the senior bathtub fills and drains.
