Our Verdict

Some walk-in tub brands focus on the top end of the market, offering luxury models that provide all the features of an expensive bath or whirlpool. Others companies have chosen to position themselves on the lower end, offering basic features and functionality at much lower price points than their competitors. Ariel, a well-known producer of bathroom fixtures, offers a line of fiberglass-over-steel walk-in tubs aimed at the lower end of the market, with three different packages, from a simple soaker up to a combination air spa and whirlpool model. While these tubs don’t offer all the features of some walk-in tubs, they do offer the features consumers want most, and, depending on the retailer, they provide these features at highly economical prices.

“Very happy with this Ariel walk-in tub. It does all it said it would and looks great. We installed it for my elderly mother and the hydrotherapy is so good for her arthritis. Excellent buy.”

“We love the tub. It is well built and very solid. It has a powerful whirlpool/heater which is very therapeutic. The air tub can work in conjunction with the whirlpool/heater but can operate by itself depending on your preference. The tub is quite comfortable and takes a short time to fill.”

“We bought this tub for my mom who needed a bathroom makeover urgently. This tub was the best price and the best product we found. It was easy to install and has a lot of amenities my mom loves. Thanks!”

By offering a range of basic and basic therapeutic packages at highly affordable price points, Ariel has staked out a solid position at the lower end of the walk-in tub market. While we weren’t thrilled with the limited terms of their warranty, customers seemed happy overall with their tubs, and very few manufacturers can compete with Ariel’s low prices.
