Exploring Kohler’s Walk-in Bath Features

Bathing can be one of the most relaxing and rewarding self-care activities we enjoy, but those with mobility issues or age-related difficulties can have a harder time enjoying a bath or shower. Kohler’s walk-in baths can help restore enjoyment, privacy and luxury to bathing routines for those who otherwise have difficulty with ingress and egress in the bathtub.

 

Lowest Thresholds and Easy-Reach Handrails

Kohler walk-in baths have the lowest thresholds in the industry. At three-inches, entering and exiting a Kohler walk-in tub is much easier than mounting a stair, and shorter even than many shower pans. Handrails on both sides of the tub allow the user to easily and safely use both arms to assist them in sitting down and standing up, or adjusting position while in the tub.

 

Hydrotherapy

Kohler walk-in baths feature Kohler’s proprietary BubbleMassage function as well as a whirlpool setting. Each feature has separate controls. The BubbleMassage option has three settings, for “intense,” “moderate,” and “low” air bubble injection. BubbleMassage can be turned off by cycling through the options, or will turn off automatically after 20 minutes.

The whirlpool feature allows for adjustment of the water jets and has a continuously variable intensity control, allowing you to set the pressure as desired. Since BubbleMassage and the whirlpool feature are independently adjustable, you need not use both at the same time, or you can set the intensity differently between the two features, for more air and less water pressure, or vice versa.

 

Handshower

While the tub is filled by a traditional tub faucet with separate controls for hot and cold water, a handshower is also within easy reach. A tab on the handshower itself allows selection between three different spray styles. Kohler’s hand showers aerate the water as they spray, creating larger water droplets that contain more air and feel softer and warmer than traditional showerheads. This is just another touch of luxury built into every feature of Kohler’s walk-in tubs.

 

Back and Neck Heater

No one wants to get into a cold tub and wait for the warm water to fill it! Kohler walk-in tubs feature internal heating elements to prepare the surfaces for dry entry, and to offer an additional heat boost while the tub is full. The control allows for low, medium, and high heat. In addition to making entry much more comfortable, the heater provides an extra element of relaxation and muscle-tension release both before and during bathing, and can run simultaneously with BubbleMassage and whirlpool features.

 

Automatic Water Purge

Once the tub is drained, an automatic water purge cycle begins. This allows the tub to evacuate the tubing for the water jets and make sure it has the chance to dry out between baths, keeping your tub clean and preventing mold and mildew from having a place to take hold.
