    What is the difference between Hydro Dimensions and Spirit?

    Both Hydro Dimensions and Spirit manufacture walk-in tubs in the U.S. Hydro Dimensions works with a network of installers nationwide, and Spirit is a direct-to-consumer operation in the St. Charles and St. Louis, Missouri, areas. Both companies give customers the opportunity to customize their walk-in tub features.

    • Hydro Dimensions is best for customers who want to work with a nationwide company that has a larger network of dealers. It also could be best for those who don’t foresee needing a wheelchair-accessible tub.
    • Spirit is best for customers who live near St. Charles and St. Louis, Missouri — the company has a limited service area. Spirit could be a better fit if you need wheelchair accessibility.

Reviewers also mention good tub safety, quality jets and a quick drain. Some reviewers expressed frustration with the installation process and how difficult it is to drain the tub, however.

      We got a soaker tub with grab bars and the seating from Hydro Dimensions because they are local and they have the lifetime guarantee. … It makes it easier for my mom to get in and out of the tub. The installers were in and out. They cleaned up real well. The service and the product were good.”

Many raved about how smooth the installation process was and were very pleased with the product and how much it’s changed their lives for the better.

      My special needs daughter was very sick. She hadn't ever sat in the bathtub since she was a little girl. She's now 44. It was so good for her. Even today she goes in and sings. That bathtub really helped her to get well. I love using it too.”

      Bottom line: Hydro Dimensions or Spirit?

      Hydro Dimensions and Spirit both offer solid options for walk-in bathtubs. Both let you customize your tub with features you like, and both offer lifetime warranties.

      However, Hydro Dimensions doesn’t sell a wheelchair-accessible tub, and Spirit is only available in the St. Louis and St. Charles, Missouri, areas. If you’re in its service area, Spirit might be a good option for you, but Hydro Dimensions is a good choice if you’re in another part of the country.
