      Just more than 14% of Albuquerque residents are over the age of 65, and 9.5% of residents younger than 65 are living with a disability. These individuals are at risk for dangerous falls, especially in the bathroom, where more than 80% of falls occur. According to data from the New Mexico Department of Health, New Mexico has a higher rate of deaths from falls than other parts of the country — the state sees 102 deaths per 100,000 people compared to the national rate of 59 deaths per 100,000.

      Falls in the bathroom are often caused by slippery surfaces, high steps over the bath’s rim and a lack of handrails. Walk-in tubs solve these problems with easy-step entries and additional safety features. They even have therapeutic options, such as additional jets or aromatherapy features. That’s how walk-in bathtubs help New Mexicans retiring in neighborhoods like North Valley, Placitas and Corrales stay safe and maintain their independence.

      Walk-in tub price in Albuquerque

      Prices for walk-in tubs in Albuquerque vary from model to model, but units with additional features like hydrotherapy jets or extra room cost more than standard models.

      • Soaker walk-in tubs are the basic model. They come with all typical safety features, including handrails and anti-slip floors, and cost between $2,000 and $5,000.
      • Wheelchair-accessible walk-in tubs are larger than standard tubs and include safety features such as nonslip surfaces and safety bars. These tubs cost between $5,000 and $10,000.
      • Hydrotherapy walk-in tubs include water jets to provide therapeutic massage features to relieve joint pain and help users relax. They typically cost from $5,000 to $7,000.

      For the most part, sellers include walk-in bathtub installation costs in the price of the tub. However, if you purchase your tub directly from the manufacturer or a third-party retailer like Home Depot, you may pay for the installation separately. Walk-in tub installation costs range from $700 to $3,000, depending on the tub and the complexity of the installation.

      You can often find discounts and promotions for walk-in tubs. Check manufacturers’ websites or ask sales representatives about AARP discounts or other available savings.

      Walk-in tubs are a significant investment, but these fixtures help Albuquerque residents stay in their homes longer and avoid moving to assisted living facilities. Walk-in tubs are affordable in comparison to the $5,100 per month you would pay for assisted living facilities in Albuquerque.

      Albuquerque permits required

      Your walk-in bathtub installer needs to obtain a permit with the city of Albuquerque before starting work and schedule an inspection after the work is complete. The fees for these permits are often part of the installation price. Ask your contractor if there’s anything you need to do to arrange this.

      To protect your home and the investment you’re making in a walk-in tub, make sure your plumber is licensed and insured to perform this work in New Mexico. Look up the company's plumbing license online to confirm these details.
