Tampa, Florida continues to be a popular location for walk in tubs as we just completed another tub installation for our customer Katherine N. Katherine had received several quotes from different companies. She chose Independent Home because of our high rating on Consumer Affairs and the Better Business Bureau along with affordable pricing. Here is Katherine’s installation process:

Pre-Installation Meeting

The installation process began with a pre-installation meeting with Katherine. The meeting consisted of deciding which walk in tub would work best for her, where the best location was, and deciding what type of finish she wanted.

Katherine decided to go with our celebrity walk in bathtub. She decided on the celebrity because it was the best fit for her bathroom, as it is able to fit into small spaces. She also liked the safety features that the tub offered. It has a non-slip floor, a 17” seat, a wide door opening, and a low threshold for simple entering and exiting.


Before Katherine’s new walk in tub could be installed her old tub had to be taken out. Our installation experts disconnected the old tub’s fixtures along with the plumbing. Then came removing the foundation. Our experts then began working on preparing the new plumbing to finish the preparation period.


Katherine’s walk in tub installation was unique because our experts had to reverse the plumbing. The plumbing had to be reversed because the faucets and door were on the right side of the tub. If they stayed on the right side, Katherine would not have been able to access the tub due to the toilet blocking the tub door.

The installation was then completed by hooking up the plumbing and making sure that there weren’t any leaks.

Final Walk Through

The installation took just a couple of days to complete and then Katherine was able to enjoy her new walk in tub. Before our experts left they made sure that Katherine knew how to work the tub and answered any questions she had.

Katherine is extremely happy with her new walk in tub. Her daughter had actually called to thank our experts for the installation and product quality. She doesn’t have to worry about her mother facing an injury while bathing.

Independent Home is looking forward to installing more walk in tubs for our Florida residents. Contact us today.
