A walk-in tub is designed to make bathing safe and relaxing, so we want to order process to be as painless as possible as well. When you are planning your walk-in bathtub installation, ask yourself these questions before beginning the ordering process.
What Features Do I Need?
Your new Boca Walk-In Tub already comes with a wide range of features to make your tub safe and enjoyable, but did you know that there are many other features you can add to your installation? We create custom walk-in tubs, so you can get the exact tub to meet your needs. Choose additional features like jets, a bidet, or grab bars depending on what you want from your bathing experience. Find a full list of available features here.
What Size Do I Need?
To choose the correct size for your new custom walk-in tub, you will need to select the right size. Provide our team with measurements of your tub and shower area as well as the width of your door to ensure a good fit.
What is the Existing Tub Like?
Our walk-in tub manufacturers will also need to know what kind of tub or shower you already have, to make the installation process easier. Do you have tile walls or a one-piece tub and shower unit?
What Kind of Water Heater Do I Have?
The size of your water heater is also significant to know before you begin the installation process for your step-in tub. We recommend a 50 gallon or larger water heater for the standard size tub. You will need a 75 gallon or larger model for deeper, wider, or two-seater models.

We love making walk-in tubs for seniors because they enable older Americans to bathe safely, and remain in their own homes for longer. All Boca Walk-In Tubs come standard with great features like fast fill time, quick drain, anti-skid, leak-proof design, bacteria-resistant finish, comfort-curve design, and an ADA-compliant seat, among many others. For most, this is enough to create a pleasant bathing experience, but some of the additional features we offer can be especially beneficial to seniors.
Grab Bars – As we age, the risk of falling becomes greater. Installing grab bars, both in the tub and on the wall are a great way to ensure your safety when bathing. We recommend this feature for everyone who struggles with mobility.
Water Jets – Hydrotherapy is excellent for aching joints. Installing water jets in your custom walk-in tub can add even more benefits to your soak. The jets will massage away arthritis pain and aching muscles while you relax. Water jets also add a feeling of luxury to your bathroom.
Bidet – A bidet is a great way to maintain good hygiene, even when you struggle with arthritis. After using the bathroom, this feature gets you perfectly clean with minimum effort. Every bathroom experience should be a relaxing and easy one.
Heated Seat – Heat can help relax your muscles and painful joints, and can provide comforting warmth on a cold day. A heated seat only adds to the relaxation of your step-in bathtub and will leave you feeling amazing after a soak.

As we age, personal safety in our homes becomes a top priority – especially for seniors who live alone. There comes the point where the desire to live independently collides with our need for assistance in day to day tasks. Luckily, there are more options for seniors who wish to live independently for longer, including walk-in tubs. Walk-in bathtubs make bathing safer and more relaxing for seniors.
Avoid Slips and Falls
Getting in and out of the bath or shower can be hazardous. The risk of slipping and falling during bathing activities is high for seniors. Walk-in tubs provide a low threshold that is easy to step over, grab bars for extra stability, and anti-slip material on the floor and seat of the tub. The design of the door allows for easy closure from a sitting position and can be adjusted for the left, or right hand, so arthritic joints can still operate the tub with ease.
Ease Joint Pain
Hydrotherapy is great for arthritic joints. Massaging jets and steamy, warm water will melt away pain and help you relax. You can also add a heated seat and heated back for additional pain relief.
Continue Living Independently
For many seniors, living independently is vital to their mental well-being. Walk-in tubs help create a safer environment within your home, so you don’t have to worry about slipping and falling in the tub when you’re home alone.
