What Billings residents should look for in a walk-in bathtub

billings skyline

Before purchasing a walk-in tub, consider whether you are interested in a bath with only safety features, or with added luxury options. Standard safety features come on all walk-in tubs. These generally include a low step-over, nonslip floor, built-in seat, grab bar and hand-held showerhead. Luxury features, found on higher-end models, include air and water jets, in-line heaters, quick drains, aromatherapy, chromotherapy and self-cleaning systems.

Here are common walk-in tub styles in Billings:

  • Soaking tub: Soakers are basic walk-in tubs with standard safety features to help you bathe safely. Soaking tubs are the least expensive of the walk-in tub types.
  • Jetted tub: A jetted walk-in tub has water jets (hydrotherapy), air jets (aerotherapy) or both (combination). Jets help some bathers with muscle and joint pain and create a spalike experience.
  • Bariatric tub: Bariatric walk-in tubs are built for larger users. They have more overall space than a standard walk-in tub and a wider door entry.
  • Wheelchair-accessible tub: Wheelchair-accessible tubs have outward-swinging doors with large entryways for convenient transfer from chair to tub.

Work with companies that offer a free consultation to go over tub models, customization options, installation timeline and cost and warranties. Many walk-in tub sellers will come to your home to evaluate your bathroom space, take measurements, discuss your preferences and provide a comprehensive quote that includes the cost of installation.

Billings walk-in tub installation and permitting

Before installing a walk-in tub in Billings, you may need a permit from the City of Billings Building Division. Your contractor should know if a building, electrical or plumbing permit is necessary and assist with obtaining permit(s).

Installing a walk-in tub normally takes one to two days but may require more time if you are doing more extensive renovations or need to update plumbing or electrical systems. Once setup is complete, the installer will show you how to use and maintain the tub.

Billings walk-in bath FAQ

What local financing options are available for walk-in tubs in Montana?

The Adult Resource Alliance of Yellowstone County has a program called Minor Home Repair, which helps low-income seniors in Billings address safety concerns in their homes. Also, keep in mind that most walk-in tub companies offer financing options to let customers pay for a tub in monthly installments.

Can I install my own walk-in tub?

Yes, but using a contractor may be the better option to avoid damage to your home or issues with your walk-in tub warranty. Most companies either include professional installation in the price of the tub or offer the service at an additional cost, completing setup in one to two days.

Are walk-in tubs easy to clean?

Yes, most walk-in tubs require the same regular maintenance as regular baths. To be safe, ask your walk-in tub company about specific cleaning instructions. In most cases, you can use an all-purpose spray or bathroom cleaner and soft cloth to wipe down the tub, then rinse it with the hand-held showerhead. Wipe down the faucet and showerhead with a glass cleaner, then dry them.

Do I need additional structural support to install a walk-in tub?

It depends on the size and material of the tub and your home. For most walk-in tub purchasers, the bath fits in the existing tub or shower space, with no additional structural support required. Your contractor can look at your home and tell you if structural reinforcements will be needed.
