WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:
★★★★★ - "My husband and I are old and we have neuropathy. I also have back problems. I was told that a walk-in tub would help with that. The process with Independent Home went very smoothly. When they installed it, they were here part of the day. I really like the tub. It's a great purchase. They are expensive but I do love my tub. It does take a lot of water which I knew it was going to. I've had a 50-gallon hot water heater and it does empty it to fill it up but that's okay."
Sue, Walk In Bathtubs FAQ2020-11-12
★★★★★ - "We found a few models of the walk-in shower and all kinds of the prospectus on them and decided that Independent Home would fit our needs the best, realizing that it is not that much different from many that we had looked at. However, its price was somewhat more reasonable than others had been, even though we felt it was expensive, but it was something that our time and physical abilities in our lives that we needed something that was a more accessible than the step-in tub that we had.
The sales representative came out, looked over the situation and we discussed the aspects of it. We went ahead and did it, and then scheduled an installation date and time. The installation crew came and proceeded to do it. They had a problem that they couldn't solve the first day so they had to come back the second day to actually do the installation. But they did it fairly efficiently, and cleaned up very well and left everything in a nice workable and livable condition without too much disturbance. It was an excellent experience.
The showerhead comes up on its rod just fine for pipes and so forth, but it would be nice if its handle was a little longer so that it came further out from the wall over the tub. When you use the showerhead, it splashes back against the wall and the controls up against the front end of the tub there. It's hard to get under the shower. It doesn't come out far enough. It's partly due to the shower configuration. But we had somewhat of a problem with the splash from the shower over the shelf. It's the back edge of the tub that had to be filled in with a shelf between there and the wall behind it simply because of the configuration of the bathroom.
We get water over on the backside of the tub fixture and the tub installation. And then you have to sop up quite a bit of water back there. We've tried to rig some kind of a shower curtain on the backside as well. I realized that in some installations there's not a problem there, but in ours, there is about a foot wide shelf across between or the side of the tub and the back wall of the bathroom. I'm trying to rig up an additional shower curtain to go on that side of it, so it has a shower curtain on both sides of the tub."

★★★★★ - "We are very satisfied and happy with our tub from Independent Home. This model works best for me, it fits our space and is comfortable. The guy who came to install it was wonderful, explained everything and cleaned up their mess after doing the job."

★★★★★ - "I had broken my leg and had to have back surgery. I was thinking that a walk-in tub costs too much for what you get, but I like my Independent Home tub and it has really helped me. I could sit and go to sleep in it, and it’s so easy to get in and out of it. The sales representative was a very nice guy and the installation team was very careful about bringing stuff in across the carpet."
JoAnn in Springfield, MO2016-09-12
★★★★★ - "My husband called Independent Home and talked to somebody that was helpful. We then got the air jetted tub that is 24 by 40 because it fits our needs. We installed it as my husband’s a contractor. Our purchasing experience went very well."
