Updated for December, 2018
Many more widely known companies have entered the walk-in tub market, but Safe Step specializes in bathing equipment for those with limited mobility or concerns about falling, and it shows. Safe Step’s walk-in tubs offer almost everything that a consumer might want in accessible bathing, both in terms of safety features and the therapeutic extras that make bathing so attractive for those with debilitating conditions. And while their tub and their shower/tub hybrid may seem a little pricey, they’re best compared with other high-end tubs, and they come with a lifetime warranty on everything, including the tub itself, parts, and labor, making them a great value among fully-featured walk-in tubs.

“I did a bunch of internet searches to check on walk-in tubs and Safe Step struck me as a better company. They have a much better warranty on everything . . . The installation was quick. I thought it was gonna take a long time, but it only took them a day to get it done. I’ve had the walk-in tub for about two months now and my husband loves it for his legs because he’s disabled. The bubbles that help the circulation have really helped his legs. He has been more able to get around a little easier since using the Safe Step.”Jacksonville, NC (via consumeraffairs.com)
