Independent Home recently completed a walk in tub installation in Miami for our customer Eva. Learn about our installation process and how adding a walk in tub to your home can benefit you.

Pre-Installation Meeting

Our installation process begins with having a meeting with the customer. We discuss what type of tub would work best, where the best location would be, and what type of finish the customer wants to add.

Eva decided that our Supreme Walk in Bathtub model with hydrotherapy would be the best fit for her. Eva thought it was perfect for her because it is able to provide her with both safety and relaxation. The safety features include 2 safety grab bars, a non-slip floor, an ADA compliant seat, and an inward swinging door with a low threshold for easy entering and exiting.

Eva decided to add a full water jet hydrotherapy system to her tub to help her relax along with taking away any joint pain that she may have. The jets work in a greater range of motion which will increase Eva’s circulation as she is enjoying a deep soak. Her increased circulation will help rehabilitate her muscles.

The second step in our walk in tub installation process is to prepare. This included taking out Eva’s old bathtub and fixtures, disconnecting the plumbing and removing the foundation.

After preparation it is then time for the installation. The installation for Eva’s tub included bringing in her new tub and leveling the legs, connecting the plumbing, and making sure there aren’t any leaks. Eva had also requested that a 60-gallon water heater be installed so that she would be nice and toasty during each soak.

Customer Update
Eva is extremely happy with her walk in tub. One of her favorite features is the speed drain, allowing her tub to drain in just 90 seconds. She now has the confidence to bathe when she is home alone.

If you are looking for a safe bathing solution but also a way to relax a walk in tub is perfect for you. Contact Independent Home today.
