The tub has a full-size, contoured door that has a watertight seal. The low threshold allows for partial transfer. It has easy-touch control buttons and is constructed of fiberglass with a high-gloss gel coat. It also features the same quick-fill faucet and quick drain that pumps out water in two minutes or less. The tub measures 52×30”x40” and the seat is 22” wide. The tub has standard safety features such as the low threshold and watertight seal. It also has a grab bar and a textured, slip-proof floor. The seat within the tub is also contoured in order to make it easier and safer to sit down and stand out, as well as making it more comfortable to sit on while bathing.

The seat in the tub is not heated.

It costs a little more than similar products by other brands.

One downside is that the owner’s manual isn’t as thorough as it could be. It can take some tinkering around to figure out the adjustable door latch and all of the control knobs, as these aren’t well explained in the manual.
