Frequently Asked Questions

1) Do Walk-In Bathtubs Leak?

Yes, they can leak. Another common complaint from people who purchased a poor quality tub and attempted to save cash stems from door escapes. When buying a walk-in bath, be sure you purchase a lifetime guarantee, because as soon as the door leaks, the bath can't be used by you, until you fix the seal. Make sure the walk in bath is strong and rigid to avoid any flex that inhibits a water-tight door. Also during hauling any damage that could have occurred can loosen fittings and mishandling and cause leakage. Before using the walk-in bath, it's significant that the installer test the bathtub correctly according to the instruction manual. The water may have problem draining properly and might create the door to leak, if the bath is not installed level together with the supporting attributes provided. Finally, make sure you comprehend the dangers related to the positioning of your walk-in tub, especially alcoves, since they have specific requirements to prevent leaking.

2) Can the shower be used still with a walk-in bathtub?

Yes. There are walk-in tub installments that offer you a big standing place for stand-up showers. You can either shower sitting down or standing up. Be sure to get the correct measurements for the walk-in tub in order you don't feel cramped during a stand-up shower. Additionally, should you need to keep your standing shower since if your faucet is not right against a wall, it's significantly harder to tap into your existing shower, another thing to keep in mind would be to ask about the faucet place.

3) About how much will one of these tubs cost to get installed?

The installation can cost you about $1,500-$3,000 to be installed in Boise. Occasionally the cost of the setup and the unit is a better investment than paying for a caretaker.

4) Do these tubs drain normally?

Yes. Occasionally, however, it is necessary to modify the plumbing depending on the place of the drains. Installers may have to add a fitting to the present wastewater pipe for a walk in bathtub. Existing plumbing may allow for quicker drain times or slower drain times.

5) Will the cost of installation and equipment be covered by my disability in Idaho?

In case your handicap was due to a work or vehicle accident, check together with the appropriate insurance carrier to find out if house adjustments resulting from your ID disability are covered. Claims that contain Boise dwelling modifications are not inadmissible in insurance resolutions. Someone qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they've worked in a job that was covered by Social Security and have a medical condition which meets their definition of disability. If you're on disability or injured, benefits could be insured. Since SSI is a needs-based plan plus an SSI recipient must have limited income and resources, qualification for the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows a person with a disability to attain an occupational goal. The money that's set aside under a PASS can be used for anything that contributes to an occupational goal and can be used to cover home modifications through an SSI savings strategy. In case you are a veteran, the Department of Veterans' Affairs does offer individual programs that might help you deflect a number of the cost. Contact the form 26-4555 to submit an application for SHA or SAH grant. For advice on all VA benefits in Idaho call 1 800 827 1000.

6) How do walk-in tubs drain?

Some systems use a gravity just drainage system, while other manufacturers offer power-assisted drainage systems. Usually, the drainage system in a walk in tub is attached to the normal tub drain, which is threaded into a flat pipe called a waste shoe. The shoe is sealed with a foam washer or putty under its flange. Since a bather cannot leave the tub until all of the water is drained, the huge difference is the fact that since sitting there waiting for the water can leave a bather feeling cooled, producers have attempted to reduce the waiting time. Comparing double drain choices to rapid drain choices is significant when considering that most walk-in tubs take between 2 and 3 minutes to drain which demands that the temperature in the room be comfortable while they wait. Some attributes may cost you more, so it's almost always a good idea to ask. Eventually, get to know the difference between frameless tubs since frameless tubs often drain quicker than framed baths, because they do not change the drain height of your existing tub and framed tubs. Framed tubs are constructed on a steel frame and the base of the tub is dangled off the ground. Frameless tubs are designed with an extra-strength mold that does not require a steel frame and the bottom of the bath isn't suspended in the air.

7) Do these tubs use more water than conventional tubs?

Yes. A walk in bathtub is generally taller than an average bath tub, which includes about 2 1/2 feet of water on average. Some makers say that you just use exactly the same amount of water as a standard shower if a regular shower is 7 minutes and also you use 7 gallons of water a minute. Most of the walk-in tubs on the market have a 40-80 gallon capacity. In fact, many manufacturers advise that you've got a hot water tank that holds at least 50 gallons, though some bathtubs will operate efficiently should you fill them with 40-60 gallons.

8) Will a tub like this look bad for my homeowner’s insurance in Idaho?

Many upgraded homeowner's insurance policies protect against flooding from your pipes and appliances. Check with your Boise homeowner's insurance to ensure it is going to cover you against this type of damage. You may require a house alteration permit from the Boise, ID building department to set up a tub, particularly when walls need to be eliminated to match your bathroom plans. Above all, if you needed a license and you didn't get one AND somehow your house suffers from damage from the installed walk-in tub, your losses may not be covered by your homeowner's insurance. Should you plan on selling your Boise home, there are heaps of buyer beware messages out there which will steer potential buyers from your home if there have been any improvements without licenses since it does impact homeowner's insurance. Buyers see the licenses as well as their homeowners insurance as protections on their investments in homes.

9) Will a tub like this add to my Boise home’s resale value?

In case you live in a Boise retirement community, installing a walk in bathroom may increase the value of your house. It probably won't increase the value of your home. Since changes to your bathroom don't generally raise the value of your home, the price can be qualified for the medical expense deduction for tax purposes both federally and in Idaho if the primary goal of the enhancements will be to accommodate a home to the impairment of the citizen, their spouse or dependent living there.

10) Why are these tubs so much more expensive than normal tubs?

Largely you're paying for a list of safety features that are unavailable on a regular tub. These safety features are built into walk-in baths for persons with limited mobility to decrease the likelihood of falling down. An essential feature of walk in tubs is that there's a low step threshold to allow a user to readily enter into the bathtub unconcerned about the typical high wall of a regular tub. The walk in bathtubs also normally contain jet treatment, a cleaning function, and enhanced drain alternatives. Furthermore, one of the reasons why the price changes among the walk-in tubs is that the baths are custom made depending on someone 's needs rather than factory reproduced, so you could find a bath that is specifically made for somebody who desires wheelchair access, a tub that fits a bigger individual, or a soaker tub with jets.

11) How much do walk-in bathtubs cost in Boise?

A walk-in bathtub in Boise commonly ranges in price from $1,700 to over $30,000. The cost also fluctuates depending on whether you choose acrylic or fiberglass bathtubs. Everybody differs and ensuring that a walk in bath works for somebody 's unique circumstances is extremely essential since it is usually replacing a bathtub or bath assembly that isn't meeting their needs. A great walk in bathtub runs between $8, $3,000 000 installed. Some providers offer a cash bonus or monthly premiums.

12) What types of financing are available in Idaho if insurance doesn't cover home modifications?

The American Elder Care Research Organization lists several other financial assistance avenues to think about when looking for aid to buy your walk-in bath. (1) The US Department of Agriculture helps low income and elderly residents of rural areas make house modifications to enable aging in position. The USA Rural Development plan is also referred to as the Section 504 program, the Very Low-Income Housing Repair program as well as the RD 504 Loan Program. The adjustments may have a walk-in bathtub. There are geographic and age, income demands to participate. To find out more about the maximum quantities available, other limits and the best way to apply, visit and click on your state after you click on the 'Contact Us' link. Following that, you can click on your county and a list of service centers including phone numbers will pop up. (2) For a non-Medicaid state financial assistance program for the elderly, you can check this list to determine whether there are any that include home modifications. (3) Rebuilding Together, a national non profit that can perhaps cancel the installation prices of a walk in bathtub, can be a great resource. Contact them at (4)There are other choices to consider. The Internal Revenue Service may decide your house alteration qualifies for tax deductions as a dental and medical expense. This really should not be confused with the Dependent Care Tax Credit, which is used for dependent care expenses incurred by a primary citizen to empower them to work instead of caring for their dependent. There are also qualifications to be able to claim an individual who needs care as a dependent. Call the Internal Revenue Service to determine when you can deduct the price of installing your walk-in bath. IRS Publication 502 is a good resource that can help you estimate whether changing your toilet qualifies you to deduct it as a medical expense. You can also phone them at (800) 829-1040. (5) The National Resource Center on Supportive Housing and Home Modification can also allow you to find help to cover home modifications. Click the link to learn more about this alternative
