FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
How does the watertight door work?
The watertight door of the Energy Tubs walk-in tub forms a hydrostatic seal when the door is closed and latched. Additionally, the weight of water inside the tub further compresses the door seal making it completely leak proof. Energy Tubs guarantees the door seal.
Can the Energy Tubs walk-in tub be used as a shower?
Yes, the Energy Tubs deluxe faucet set comes with an extendable/retractable hand-held showerhead that is typically mounted onto the deck of the tub. If you choose, your installer can mount the handheld showerhead on the wall.
Do Energy Tubs walk-in tubs have an electrical safety certification?
Yes, Energy Tubs is one of the few walk-in tub manufacturers with a UL certification. The UL listing provides you and your customers with a very strong indication of the safety of an Energy Tubs walk-in bath. UL is an independent product safety certification organization who has been testing and evaluating products for over 116 years. They are world-regarded as the best in the business. More specifically, UL does extensive testing of a product against UL safety standards. If the product is approved, the product is labeled with a UL Listing Mark. Look for this UL Listing Mark…don’t buy a walk-in tub that doesn’t have this mark prominently displayed in their website, literature and on the tub.
How are Energy Tubs walk-in tubs installed?
Energy Tubs walk-in tub can be installed by any capable, licensed plumber in as little as two days. Because Energy Tubs walk-in bathtubs fit regular tub spaces, no major remodeling is needed.
