Choosing a bathtub or a shower is a matter of lifestyle, budget and personal preference. Young families with children may need a bathtub for bathing. The elderly or disabled may require a tub for a soaking therapy. Adding a standard sized bathtub may be expensive and require extensive design and plumbing modifications. However, options for those who want the benefit of a tub but have the space of a shower stall are available.

Superior Walk-In Tubs provides bathtubs for those who need the therapeutic benefits of hot water immersion and the massaging action of spa jets. All models have a handheld shower, shower rod and curtain available. The ELITE model is compact and fits into the space of an existing shower stall or small bathtub. It comes with 16 spa jets and an anti-slip seat and floor. It also has an easy access front door that opens outward for maximum bathing space.
