What is the difference between Boca and Hydro Dimensions?
Boca and Hydro Dimensions offer homeowners walk-in tubs with therapeutic add-on options. Boca creates made-to-order tubs according to the homeowner’s specifications, whereas Hydro Dimensions appeals to style as much as convenience.
Boca is best for customers looking for a walk-in tub custom-built to their specifications. Boca makes each walk-in tub to order, so homeowners can choose the size and features that work best for them.
Hydro Dimensions is best for homeowners who want their walk-in tub to give the bathroom a spa-like feel. Along with its custom luxury tub features, Hydro Dimensions lets you select fixture and wall-surround finishes so you can better match the style of your bathroom, giving it a lavish flair.
Boca custom-makes its walk-in tubs in the state of Georgia. Unlike most companies with several models and various different features, the company custom-builds each model according to the customer’s choices. It provides a list of standard features, and homeowners can choose the tub size and any additional elements they desire.
Because each tub is custom-made upon ordering, Boca doesn’t list pricing information on its website. There’s also no mention of financing options. You can contact the company directly for more details on costs.
