Q. How Does the Water Tight Door Work?
The Superior tub’s water tight door seal system forms a seal when compressed by latching the door. In addition to the locking door, the water pressure helps to keep the inward swinging door seal compressed, helping to insure for no leaks. All Superior Model Walk In Tubs door seals are guaranteed for life.
Q. Can The Walk-in Tub also be used as a shower?
Yes! Our tubs come with everything you need to shower, including a roman faucet set with hand held shower, shower rod, and a curtain. The shower rod makes it easy to put the hand held shower on the wall and make it look like a conventional shower.
Q. How is the walk-in tub installed into my existing bathroom?
The installation is very easy. Any licensed plumber can do the job. You don’t need to remodel your bathroom since our tubs fits into a traditional 60 inch tub space.
