Jacuzzi Walk In Tub
A walk-in tub can improve the quality of life for seniors with balance and mobility challenges. Including a walk-in tub in a new home or replacing a standard soaking tub with a newer, safer walk-in can give homeowners more years of independent living and personal privacy. A tub made by a well-known brand can add value to the home, as well.
If any brand is synonymous with home spas and luxury bathing, it’s Jacuzzi. The Italian company has been in the hydrotherapy business for more than half a century and now has operations all over the world. Among its product lines are custom-built luxury tubs, showers, and walk-in tubs in a range of sizes.
Here’s our review of Jacuzzi walk-in tubs. We’d love to hear from you! Share your opinion by writing a review.
Jacuzzi’s walk-in tubs are available in compact sizes that can replace a typical shower stall, standard sizes designed to replace a conventional tub, and oversize models with more interior room and slightly larger exterior dimensions that can fit into a large soaking tub space. Features include Jacuzzi’s hydrotherapy massage system of air and whirlpool jets, aromatherapy dispensers, colored lights, and safety features such as non-skid floors and grab bars. These tubs are sold and installed by Jacuzzi-certified remodelers across the US.
The company also makes the Finestra model, which is intended for new homes under construction or total bathroom remodeling projects. The Finestra is available through plumbing supply showrooms and authorized retailers including Lowe’s, Wayfair.com, and Build.com.
Jacuzzi is a well-established brand with a reputation for quality and luxury. Its walk-in tubs web page spells out clearly each tub style’s measurements, weight, water capacity, safety and luxury features, and water-heater requirements, making it easier for shoppers to compare products, see which ones will fit in their home, and understand any upgrades that may be required, such as a larger-capacity water heater.
Pricing for tubs is not available on Jacuzzi’s website; customers must call or submit an online form to Aging in the Home Remodelers of Virginia to get a quote for the tub plus delivery and installation. At the time of writing (July 2015), the Better Business Bureau gives Aging in the Home Remodelers a B+ rating but also includes a red-letter alert on the business, based on “a pattern of complaints exists concerning sales, customer service and service issues.” The alert says the BBB has met with Aging in the Home to discuss the company’s plan to beef up telephone customer service support and clarify its sales contract.
Jacuzzi walk-in tubs carry a lifetime limited warranty, and their door seals are fully guaranteed against leaks.
Tub prices for existing homes include shipping and installation and are available from the company’s sales representatives. Third-party financing is available for qualified buyers. Online prices for Jacuzzi’s Finestra tub for new construction range from $7,000 to more than $10,000 for the tub alone.
Seniors who want a safer tub from a recognized brand, especially seniors who want to enhance or maintain their home’s resale value.
