What you need to know about walk-in tubs
Walk-in tubs are available in just about all the sizes and styles as standard models but with one major difference: they feature a watertight door that makes access as easy as stepping into a shower. If you want a simple project, select a model with the same dimensions as your current tub. Making the switch usually doesn't require any structural or major plumbing changes. Large and small units are available — some big enough to have a built-in seat for the ultimate in soaking comfort. Here are a few other features you may wish to consider:
Fast drain systems

While the tub door cant be opened until the water drains, that wait can be shortened considerably by choosing a model with a fast drain system. Most walk-ins have a swinging door that makes it easy to get in and out of the tub. However, the door design means that it can't be opened after bathing until the water has drained past the bottom of the frame. Manufacturers such as American Standard® offer patented Quick Drain® technology that can significantly reduce the amount of time needed to drain water when bathing is complete.
Grab bars
Increase safety by selecting a model with a built-in grab bar. The bar is normally located where it can provide assistance when standing up or sitting down.

A standard tub can be transformed into a luxurious spa by adding air and water jets to the unit. Many manufacturers offer adjustable nozzles and controls. The gentle massaging properties of air jets located throughout the tub may help get blood moving in extremities. Adjustable water jets may also be able to provide quick relief. The number of jets offered can vary by model and manufacturer. In many cases, the direction and water pressure of individual jets can also be adjusted.
Extendable shower attachment
Those interested in both relaxing soaks and refreshing showers can choose models that accept an extendable, handheld shower attachment.

How much should you expect it to cost?
Most walk-in units are comparable in price to mid- to high-range spa and soaking tubs. Costs for walk-in tubs range quite a bit depending on quality and which features you add. The ballpark cost for a walk-in tub including installation typically ranges from $10,000 - $15,000. The largest variables in pricing, aside from the size of the tub, are optional features like jet systems, which can add to your tub's final cost as well.
Can walk-in tubs increase your home's value?
The good news is that you might be able to recoup much of your project's costs when the time comes to sell your home. Remodeling Magazine's Cost vs. Value Report for 2013 estimates that homeowners can now expect to recover about 65 percent of the costs of a typical bathroom remodel. That figure is based on a national average - if you live in the Pacific region, you could recoup almost 80 percent of the amount invested in your project.
