      About 12% of Portland residents are 65 or older. In Oregon, falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries for this age group, with 1 in 3 older adults falling each year. In neighborhoods like Raleigh Hills and West Slope — where many seniors and retirees live — falling is more prevalent.

      Walk-in tubs increase safety and accessibility for seniors and those with disabilities. Walk-in tubs are also beneficial for relaxing and treating symptoms associated with certain illnesses.

      Cost of a walk-in tub in Portland, OR

      Walk-in tubs in Portland cost anywhere from $1,500 to more than $20,000, depending on the features included. Manufacturers offer options for the type, features, size, shape and color of the tub. The starting cost factor is the type of walk-in tub you choose:

      • Soaker walk-in tubs are basic models with standard safety features like nonslip floors, grab bars, built-in seats and swinging doors. They cost $1,500 to $5,000.
      • Hydrotherapy walk-in tubs have all the features of soakers plus water jets that provide a massage-like experience. They cost $5,000 to $7,000.
      • Combination walk-in tubs have water jets and air jets that give the user greater therapeutic benefits. They cost $7,000 to $10,000.
      • Wheelchair-accessible walk-in tubs have a larger entrance, outward-swinging door and specially designed seat. Bariatric tubs are made for larger individuals and have similar characteristics. Both types of tubs cost $5,000 to $10,000.
      • Luxury walk-in tubs are typically customized by the buyer and have multiple features. They usually cost from $10,000 to more than $20,000.

      Some companies include installation in the cost of a walk-in bathtub, while others have a separate installation charge that's usually $1,500 or less. If the walk-in tub company doesn’t perform the installation, ask if it has a recommended contractor. You can verify a contractor’s license with the state of Oregon online.

      Most walk-in tub companies offer financing options to help buyers make affordable monthly payments. Also, inquire about discounts and promotions. The average starting cost of an assisted living community like CherryWood Village or Hawthorne Gardens Senior is around $4,000 a month, so purchasing a walk-in tub that lets you age in place may be a smart investment.

      Permits needed in Portland, OR

      Installing a walk-in tub in the city of Portland requires a permit. According to the city's website, replacing plumbing fixtures in the same location requires a plumbing permit. If you are adding a bathroom with a walk-in tub to your home, you need a building permit, a plumbing permit and an electrical permit. However, Portland has a Simple Bathroom Permit program for qualified projects that makes the process easier.

      Your installation contractor should assist you with the permitting process — ask what permits you need for walk-in tub installation and if the contractor assists in obtaining them. For direct information about permits in the city of Portland, contact the Bureau of Development Services.

      Portland walk-in tub FAQ

      Are walk-in tubs covered by Medicare?
      Medicare generally doesn’t cover walk-in tubs because they are not considered durable medical equipment. There may be exceptions in some circumstances. To learn more, call or visit the Medicare website.
      What do walk-in tub typically warranties cover in Portland?
      Walk-in tub warranties cover all components of the walk-in tub, including the door seal, jets, motors and pumps. Warranties also cover the costs of labor for repairs. Read the warranty carefully before making your purchase. Different parts of the tub are likely covered for different lengths of time.
      Can I deduct my walk-in tub purchase on my taxes?
      You may be able to deduct the cost of your walk-in tub if it’s a medical care expense used to mitigate, treat or prevent disease. The IRS has an Interactive Tax Assistant you can use to find if your walk-in tub purchase is tax deductible.
