Why is a low step‑in for a walk‑in tub so important?
Because the raised lip of a bath can be a challenge to secure entry and exit, Kohler created a step‑in that is only 3 inches high, the lowest available on the market. By making the step‑in as low as possible, Kohler has further increased the safety of the walk‑in bath.
What makes the door of a KOHLER® Walk‑In Bath so special?
The KOHLER® Walk‑In Bath has the widest door opening compared to all other walk‑in tubs. Our engineers designed the bathtub to be as safe and accessible as possible, so you can enter and exit the bathtub with ease. The door also has an easy-to-turn handle to complete the seal once you’ve entered the step‑in bath. Depending on your home’s plumbing, your installer will determine if your bath needs a left- or right-facing door. It is also designed in a sleek and elegant way that looks great in your bathroom.
Is a walk‑in tub comfortable to sit in?
The KOHLER® Walk‑In Bath has the most spacious interior of any on the market. Our engineers and scientists have developed an ergonomically friendly seat design to put you in a relaxed position in the bath and within reach of all controls of the bath.
How long does the walk‑in bath take to fill up?
Once you are seated in the bath with the air-tight door closed, the tub will take just a few minutes to fill up to its operating depth. Activate the Bask™ heated neck and back surfaces to keep warm while the tub fills.
How do I stay warm while the tub fills up?
One of the many benefits of KOHLER® Belay™ Hydrotherapy Walk‑In Baths is the Bask™ feature. The Bask heated neck and back surfaces can be switched on before bathing, making it easy to keep warm while the bathtub fills. You may also use the adjustable hand shower throughout your bathing experience as the bathtub water rises.
Why do I need hydrotherapy whirlpool jets?
The KOHLER® Belay™ Hydrotherapy Walk‑In Bath includes therapeutic whirlpool jets that gently and powerfully direct water at stress points along your legs, spine, and feet. With adjustable intensity settings at your fingertips, our hydrotherapy is ideal for unwinding, relaxing and revitalizing. Kohler is the leader in hydrotherapy and whirlpool jet technology, offering exclusive features that are more advanced than the marketplace. The strategic jet placement ensures the most spa-like bathing experience you can get in a walk‑in bath.
How many jets do I need for my walk‑in tub?
The number of jets in your bath is not as important as the placement, positioning and the quality of the jets. Kohler, the leader in jetted bathtub technology, offers 10 adjustable hydrotherapy jets in our walk‑in bathtub. They are positioned with 2 in front of the legs and 2 behind the calves, as well as 6 jets targeted at the back and spine. In addition, we feature 17 BubbleMassage™ air jets, adjustable for intensity, that will envelop your body in thousands of tiny bubbles, bringing the luxury of a spa into your home.
Does the tub come with faucets and a shower?
The KOHLER® Walk‑In Bath comes with the best faucets and hand shower on the market – all bearing the Kohler name. The hardware is accessible and easily within reach in the seated position. You can even customize your fixture and faucet finish to your style—pick either polished chrome or brushed nickel.
How long does the walk‑in bath take to drain?
KOHLER® Walk‑In Baths are carefully designed to have some of the fastest filling and draining times on the market. Please note that fill and drain times may vary depending on the water pipe capacity and flow rate of your home’s plumbing system.
What features does the hand shower include?
The specialized hand shower is ergonomically designed to clean hard-to-reach areas. Choose from 3 settings: wide spray, massage spray or gentle aerated spray.
