The installation process includes several tricky steps including removing your old tub, repairing your floor, installing the GFI circuit, and hooking up the water line. AmeriGlide cannot install your walk in tub, but we can provide local references for qualified plumbers or contractors in your area. If you do decide to install your walk in tub yourself, you can find a short installation guide that can help you get started.
