What is the value of a lifetime warranty?
The standard manufacture warranty on a walk-in tub is two years. However, certain items like pumps, door seals or the tub structure may be extended past this period. To justify higher prices and remain competitive some brands are pushing Limited Lifetime Warranties. Something you didn’t see prior to 2013-14.
Accessible bathroom modifications and the purchase of items such as chair lifts, hand rails, etc., for the most are done late in life. Often much later. Take this into consideration when putting a value on a limited lifetime warranty. When is comes to the cost of walk in tubs, keep it reasonable. Look on Craigs List and you’ll see used tubs that once sold for $15-20,000 plus, selling for just a fraction on this.
