American Standard walk-in tub features
For comfort and safety, each American Standard walk-in tub includes built-in contoured seats, a safety bar and textured bath floors. Most come fully equipped with a fast-fill tub faucet, a hand-held showering wand and a color-matched drain and overflow. For units without fixtures, an American Standard walk-in tub faucet can be ordered separately.
In addition to standard safety features, most types of American Standard walk-in bathtubs include massage jets for relaxation:
- Air baths feature over 20 individual jets that deliver all-over, water-based massage therapy through tiny warm air bubbles.
- Whirlpools include up to 13 water jets with an optional legs-only massage.
- Combo tubs combine the benefits of air baths and whirlpools with up to 39 jets total.
To keep the massage jets clean, specific combo and whirlpool models also include ozone self-cleaning sanitation systems that help the unit run efficiently and cleanly.
In addition to massage jets, combo tub users can also benefit from multicolored chromotherapy. American Standard tubs equipped with chromotherapy use underwater LED lighting to add a color wash or flowing color sequence to your bath.
All units use American Standard’s patented technology to remove water from the tub in less than two minutes. This technology is usually called Quick Drain, although some larger models (60 inches by 30 inches) use Minute Drain technology.
American Standard walk-in tub cost
An American Standard walk-in tub typically costs from $4,000 to $11,000, with a 28-by-48-inch soaking tub costing significantly less than a 32-by-60-inch combo tub with chromotherapy and ozone self-cleaning systems. Tub size, type, material and any additional features affect the price.
To obtain an accurate quote, customers can schedule a no-cost, no-obligation, in-home safety evaluation. American Standard’s contractors determine prices based on:

- Electrical system
- Existing plumbing configuration

American Standard walk-in tub FAQ
What type of warranty does American Standard offer for walk-in tubs?
All American Standard walk-in tubs come with a lifetime warranty on the door seal, installation and labor. Acrylic walk-in tubs come with a 15-year warranty on the bathtub shell and a 10-year warranty on all other components. Gelcoat walk-in tubs come with a 10-year warranty on the bathtub shell and a five-year warranty on the components.
What’s the process for installing an American Standard walk-in tub?
Factory-trained, certified specialists install your tub, typically within one or two days. The installation team also removes and discards your old tub. Once installed, the American Standard contractor tests your tub and explains operations. The in-home evaluation determines the installation cost.
What’s the difference between acrylic and fiberglass tubs from American Standard?
Choosing between a fiberglass and an acrylic American standard walk-in tub depends on your budget, your ability to clean and maintain your tub and the location of the bathroom in your home.
Fiberglass walk-in tubs from American Standard are less expensive, made of lightweight material and ideal for two-story homes. However, fiberglass tubs can be more susceptible to chipping, cracking and failing. They can also stain and absorb water, which can lead to mold buildup if not properly maintained.
Acrylic walk-in tubs from American Standard are less susceptible to physical damage and mold, but they’re more expensive. The heavier material makes acrylic tubs better suited for bathrooms on the first floor.
Both tubs have the same 10- to 15-year lifespan.
How do I clean my American Standard walk-in tub?
American Standard recommends daily upkeep, weekly or monthly cleaning and occasional deep cleaning for walk-in tubs. After each use, rinse off the tub and fixtures with warm water to remove body oils and soap residue. For weekly or monthly cleaning, fill the tub with hot water to seat height, add low-foaming detergent and run the jets for about ten minutes. Drain the tub and fill it with clean water. Run the jets for 15 more minutes to rinse, then drain. For deep cleaning, use detergent and go through longer cycles with the jets to remove residue. Do not use harsh scrubbers on the tub.
What should I expect from an American Standard in-home evaluation?
American Standard offers a free in-home consultation for customers interested in installing a walk-in tub. A certified safety specialist will come to your home, take measurements of your bathroom and determine if the site is suitable for a walk-in tub. You will also receive an accurate price quote that includes the cost of professional installation.
Do we recommend American Standard walk-in tubs?
American Standard’s walk-in tubs provide a customized experience for users of any age. While prices start in the $4,000 range and climb to $11,000 or more, there are no hidden costs, and no-interest financing is available. Quotes include installation and labor, and the company backs its products with a lifetime warranty.

The sales guy was very nice. The installers were supposed to come on a certain day, and the day before, they had a problem with getting the materials, so they had to postpone it for about three weeks. But it wasn't anybody's fault. When they came in, they were very nice and professional. They knew what they were doing. It took them a day and a half. They were out of here the next day. I'm very pleased with the quality of the work done. You can't tell that they were here. The tub is very relaxing. The only thing is that we have a 50 gallon hot water heater, and it takes up all of that. The last few gallons come out lukewarm. But it works out okay.

The rep was very thorough. He explained what was available and the positive features of their system as opposed to others. It could drain very quickly so you wouldn't get cold while trying to wait to get out to dry. I clean it every time I use it. So I turn on the fancy drain. While it's draining, I'm rinsing off the sides and cleaning them. By the time it's finished draining, I'm ready to get out and I've cleaned the tub too. I got the shower too so I'd have that option. Originally they told me installation day would be in three weeks because they had to get one in stock. I was hoping to get the tub in before I had carpet put in. They called and said they found a tub in a close area that they could pick up. That worked very well and I had that tub put in before my carpet came in.
The techs did well. The bathroom door was too small so they had to put in a whole new door in order to fit the tub in. They did a good job with that. They also added a little shelf on the wall side of the tub so they wouldn't have to retile all that stuff in front of the tub. That worked out perfectly. I really like the final product. I feel very comfortable and safe getting in it.

I put in a shower with the bidet and there were some issues with it. It was damaged in transit and American Standard's reps were so good and so sweet. They kept me informed and it wasn't their fault. I love everything about the shower. It’s got a handheld and a nozzle. It's quick and easy to use. I can be in and out of it in no time at all. It's got a seat where I can sit down and shave my legs without fear of falling over. So, it's worth the price.
When the installer put it in, we joked about how expensive it was. I'm a 71-year-old woman who lives by herself and I was fussing about how much it cost. But he said that it's a whole lot cheaper than a hip replacement. He had such a good attitude about it and he knew I'm obviously not broke or I wouldn't be putting it in. Also, out of the two companies that I compared, I liked that American Standard had a choice. They had two levels and what I needed was $5,000 cheaper than the other company. So, it was priced fairly for what they have to do.
Since I had good luck with them the first time, I called them again. And now, I have a shower in one bathroom and a tub in the other. The price was right and the people that I talked to on the phone were awesome. The people that showed up here were awesome, too. The same guy that put in my shower called and set up the appointment. Also, the installation was done a week sooner than they thought they were going to. Somebody canceled and they got my appointment in sooner. We had a good working relationship. He even remembered that I lived in Rusk, I live on the corner, I've got a big nasty orange cat, and that my name is Brenda.
The men who were with him were excellent, too. They had to cut my door out to make it bigger and said that we'd probably have to paint or do something after. And that would be my responsibility. I have a daughter-in-law who sees every flaw and after they put it back together, she could not even tell that they had cut it out. They also cleaned up when they left and I was very happy.
I've told everybody I know that if they need a walk-in bath, they need to call American Standard. I don't use the tub every single day but when I get in it, I love it. I have a granddaughter who comes to my house just to take a bath and my sister comes to visit quite regularly, and she loves it. If she could take it out and take it home, she would. My favorite feature is that it stays warm for a long time and it's well insulated. It fills and drains quickly, too. And it feels awesome when you're in it. American Standard's reps also called later and checked on me. They sent me questionnaires, too.

I looked up the top three companies and interviewed all three of them. I got the answers I wanted. I went with the American Standard because as a retired Realtor, I was very aware of their nationwide reputation. In the real estate industry that I was a part of for 30 years, American Standard is known to have quality products. I have confidence that they will stand behind their product. There were other tubs out there but I didn't know them. I can't trust that they will stand behind their product.
Initially, I wanted to go with Kohler because their aesthetics were a little bit better. But American Standard had better features I wanted and they exclusively do these kinds of products. The tub was an expensive product and there were cheaper ones in the market. But I didn't want cheap, I wanted good. I knew it was gonna be expensive to deal with. In the end, American Standard's final quote was at least $1,000 less than their competitors.
The rep was very experienced and knowledgeable. He knew his business, the product, and what the price points were. He was very familiar with the competition and he made a good argument. Ultimately, without having to negotiate, he gave me the best price possible. The marketing was top class. The installers were very helpful. It was a family operation and they did the best they could with what they had. We had turned the door around in order to make it possible to do the installation. When you change the molding of a door frame and turn it inside out, it doesn't look right. It can't be done unless you do a proper refinish. The installers did the job they were supposed to do but it was still a little rough and needed some more attention. But I can't fault that to them for that. They showed up on time and were very informative. They were very nice people and were comfortable to work with.
The device itself is very helpful to me and it's attractive on many levels. I use the tub and I enjoy it. It helps me a lot with my neuropathy. But the design is incomplete and there are not enough safety features for my use. There are no physical grab bars on the exterior of this tub, which is a hindrance for me. With my kind of handicap, it's difficult for me to get in and out. Having the grab bars on the top of the tub and at the doors would be much more helpful even though it would affect the aesthetics of the tub. All in all, I'm not disappointed.

I initially talked to a phone rep who was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. But I was frustrated that they didn't tell me what the cost of the tub was going to be. It wouldn't have changed my mind but it would have been useful information. Then I had a sales rep come to my house and do estimates and the full sales piece on Saturday afternoon. She convinced me during that meeting that American Standard was the way to go.
The installer came a week earlier to do a walkthrough and make sure any of my questions were answered and also to understand if there were going to be any issues, which there were a couple. One included that I had two flights of steps and the installer did it by himself. Although, after he saw my house, he decided he needed to have some help getting the tub into the house. He had some help for that part. He showed up when he said he was going to be there and left approximately when he said he was going to leave. I was very satisfied mostly with the installation.
Along with the installation of the walk-in tub, they had a promotional deal where they gave me a free bidet. I would never have ordered a bidet, but I had some medical issues and it has been wonderful. I love the bidet. But when the installer was done with the installation, I had somebody go under the house checking on a issue that he had identified and the person I had determined that the bidet was leaking. I had several text messages back and forth to the installer, at which point I got frustrated. It was very clear that the installer was not going to fix his installation. Also, I called the maintenance person and asked them if I needed a bigger water heater or not but they could not advise regarding water heaters because they were afraid of liability. I found out that the water heater I had was not the recommended size. I got a slightly bigger water heater.
They had to put in a special circuit for the walk-in tub for electrical. I connected the electrician to the installer and the installer was so impressed with the electrician that he offered to work with the electrician for future installs. The electrician was also very happy with how things had gone and gave me some free service as a result of me making that connection. The whole thing was very positive and worked exactly as I had been told it would work.

We were interested in a walk-in tub and we did a research on the internet. We had one company come in, give us an estimate, and describe their product. Then we had a representative from American Standard come in and we thought theirs looked like the superior product. It has worked very well, too. I have a little problem with the controls but it's very good. We had to replace the water heater, which we expected because we were told that the water heater we had wouldn't supply enough water to fill it up. Once it's running, it heats the water, so it is no problem. Also, my wife is disabled and she has trouble getting up when she's sitting down in the tub. And part of the problem is that if you're using soap, the flooring of the tub is very slippery. We had to buy a pad to put down there so that she could get her balance and pull herself up.
The other thing is that the chrome bar on the right really is somewhat useless. It's not in a very good place to put any pressure on to pull yourself up. Aside from that, the handle for the spray is very upright. It comes out of a little hole and there's this handle with a sprayer on it and it's difficult to maneuver that. If you're bending over and you want to wash your hair, it's hard to get an angle. It would be nice if the sprayer was one that had an articulated one where you could move it around, left and round, and up and down.
Other than that, the installation went great. We have an interior townhome and our electric panel is on the outside of the wall for the building next to us. So, in order to wire this thing in, the installers had to go up the side of the garage, across the roof, all the way across our townhome, then down into the bathroom. It was a major install and it wasn't convenient at all. I also had some questions as to whether they could even do it. But the installing crew was excellent and I was very pleased with them. They were neat and courteous. They got things done all in a day, which I thought was amazing considering the electrical things. All in all, the tub is lovely and very relaxing. It doesn't take long to fill and it's easy to empty. It's easy to clean, too.
Before we had our American Standard tub, I could not get into or out of my bathtub. So, it's made it much easier to sit down and be able to relax and enjoy a tub. Using a shower is something of an occasion because I have to hold on to a rail in order to keep myself upright. And so, this is really great. All in all, American Standard is a firm and old company that makes great plumbing supplies.

I gave American Standard a call. And one of their reps came out and talked to us about the tub. Once we saw what we like and if it was in a good price range, we'd do it. So, it turned out American Standard was the only company we seriously talked to. The representative had her literature and sales kit. And she sat down and talked to us, found out what we were thinking of doing, got a feel for what we were after. After that, she showed us the product. And we were able to ask her questions. And we just made the decision to move forward.
The installation went very well. The installers knew what they were there to do. And they went in and went after it. It took a little less than a day, and that was great. They showed us everything they did, and showed us how the tub worked. I only have a couple of things that I would do better if I were them. The installation crew was supposed to contact us a day or two before the actual installation to come out and take a look at things, make sure it was all set to go. But we never got a call from them. They just showed up on our door the afternoon before without warning.
We were home. We were able to accommodate them and, but that was a bit of a surprise and could have been inconvenient. On the post-installation side, we had a bit of an electrical problem that took a couple of trips out to solve. They took care of it, resolved that they were committed to doing what it took to make it right. And that was all done before anybody even contacted us about the financing to get the paperwork moving forward. So, nothing moved forward until they were absolutely sure we were okay with the installation and we were happy with the tub.
But there were some minor electrical issues. Putting in the tub took out a couple of our wall plugs. So, there was a circuiting issue. But they took care of it. So, it wasn't perfect. And the last thing was they put up a shower curtain around it, which we requested. Ihas an L-shaped bar that hangs from the ceiling. It connects to the two walls. That bar had a little weight to it. When it comes to the L out there, there was nothing to support it to the ceiling. So, it had this bit of a hang to it from the weight of the shower curtain. And I could see that before long, that would be an issue.
I saw that the rod was 5 1/2 inches from the ceiling where it connected to the wall. But if you followed it out where the weight would start to hit, it was now half an inch lower. I was, “You know what? This isn't gonna turn out well.” I purchased a ceiling bracket made just to support something like that. I ended up installing that. Had I called them, they would have come out and done it. But it was a minor thing. I just wanted to prevent things down the road. But better attention could have been paid to that part of it. We paid a lot for this tub. Other than that, I like the therapy aspects of the tub. You can fill up. And it's quality. We got the tub we expected to get.

A long time ago, we had an American Standard Walk-in Tub put in. For my recent purchase, I didn't have a presentation this time. I just called them and had one put in again. The installation was really good. They had done it quickly. The quality of the tub is good as well. I like everything in there, the heating and the jets. However, they're a little expensive. In fact, I have not paid for mine at all. I got a two-year payment plan thing. And mine was around 25,000.

We got the American Standard for my mother-in-law who is 93. The reps on the phone were always great. They were able to answer my questions and gave good feedback on whatever I asked.

I couldn't get in and out of the tub. My wife saw American Standard and that was what her parents had. She called about that and they were the first ones that came out and looked. I knew that I would be able to get into the tub and I can. Three weeks after we bought the product, the installation was done and the installer did a really good job on that. We could have had it the week before but we were out of town. The installer got here about 9 o'clock in the morning and it was about 3 o'clock when he left.
My only complaint about this tub is the shower. I was supposed to have a shower above the tub itself and they didn't put in the shower. We called and they haven't replied back to us. That was two weeks ago. We had talked to the guy who installed the tub and told him, "I paid for a shower. I want it." That aside, the tub works fine and my wife enjoys the jets. I really enjoy the tub too. It's a whole lot easier than it was trying to climb over the other tub. With my old one, it took me 20 minutes to get out of the tub. With this tub now, I can walk in and out with no problem. All in all, American Standard did well like the lady who showed us about the tub before we got it. The person who installed it showed us how to work everything. The walk-in tub was more than what I wanted to pay. It was more than I paid for my first house. But it was worth it to me.

The American Standard salesman was good. I like his honest opinion. He didn't seem high pressure. He was laying out his products of what it would do and not do. He told me when they would be available to come do it. The installers came right out. They didn't wanna lose the sale. They were out here in a heartbeat. They had it done in a day. They didn't take the whole day. They also didn't leave any mess. It was all cleaned up. They talked us through a demonstration too. When I walked in and they were all finished, I thought, "Wow. That's a big tub. That's taking up the whole bathroom." I like the bubbles and it's comfortable to sit in. My daughter has a compression fracture in her back and it helps her. It works. However, it was pretty expensive to do.
