5 Best Walk In Jacuzzi Tubs

Have you decided you need to replace your current tub?  Maybe yours is damaged, or perhaps there are older adults in your home that no longer have the range of motion or balance to climb over a bathtub ledge.  Maybe someone with a disability or perhaps it’s just time for a change. This article reviews and compares 5 of the best walk-in jacuzzi tubs at various price points. At the bottom of this post, there is a side by side comparison table that summarizes and compares these tubs.

In addition to walk-in tubs, if you are interested in making your home safer,  In-Home Safety is an article I wrote, that looks at various potential hazards that can be found in the home and ways to correct those hazards.
