Customer reviews

“My Safe Step Walk-In Tub is a fulfillment of my dreams. I finally can sit and relax while bathing. The features have helped enable me to work in the yard and improved my walking since my multiple surgeries to repair my knees. It was worth every penny (dollar in today’s market) I spent.”

This was the best experience I have ever had! From the time the sales rep came to my home to the time the installers left, they were professional, efficient, friendly, and even cleaned up after themselves. Leaving my home the way it was before they came and the walk-in shower is fantastic! Would recommend them to anyone!”
