Hydro Dimensions are veterans of the bathtub industry, in operation since 1983. They started out by designing safety components and hydro massage features for other bathtub companies. By 2002, Hydro Dimensions had teamed up with the Safety Tubs company. They worked together to design and manufacture early models of walk-in bathtubs.
Hydro Dimensions has a range of 16 walk-in tubs. All the models have the standard safety features you expect from a walk-in tub: low walk-in entry door, safety grab bar, built-in seat, easy-to-reach chrome faucet, hand-held shower, and anti-slip floor.
So what makes Hydro Dimensions stand out from the crowd? Their walk-in tubs are in the higher price range of the market, but they offer a range of sizes that suit the needs of any body type. They also have plenty of pampering features and customizable fittings for your tub and bathroom. They definitely don’t skimp on luxury!
With Hydro Dimensions, you can enjoy a one-stop shopping experience with everything that you need if you’re thinking of buying a new bathtub.

Hydro Dimensions Products
Hydro Dimensions manufactures both standard and specialized tubs. Their standard walk-in tubs range from simple soakers that fit into any sized bathroom, to deep and wide models for luxurious bathing. These have standard features similar to most walk-ins on the market.
Their specialized tub is designed specifically for wheelchair users, who need extra door width to get in and out of the tub easily.
Here we’re going to look at some of their top-selling tubs, and give you an overview of what you can expect from Hydro Dimensions.
This walk-in model measures 30” wide by 22” tall, and is a full 60” in length. It doesn’t feature a built-in seat – it’s designed for people who like to lie down fully in the bathtub for a luxurious soak or hydro massage.
However, it still offers bathers the safety advantage of a low-step walk-in door, so you don’t have to risk a fall as you would with a standard step-in tub.
The tub has a choice of water or air massage jets for that luxurious spa-like feeling, but no dual massage system. Don’t be put off by this, though – the lower profile and the smaller body of the tub means you pay less.
This bathtub is very versatile for households with family members of various mobility levels. Bathers without mobility issues can choose to seal the walk-in door and use the tub as a conventional step-in bath.
This walk-in bathtub measures 30” wide by 52” long by 40” tall. Its specialty feature is an extra-wide door, which suits people who face extreme challenges getting in and out of a standard walk-in bathtub.
The extremely wide L-shaped door swings right out, leaving the built-in seat completely accessible to wheelchair users. Bathers can slide right onto the seat from their chair without hassle. Whether you’re a wheelchair user wanting to maintain bathing independence, or a carer who wants to minimize lifting, this tub is one of the most convenient and easy to use on the market.
This bathtub is built extra deep and wide. The dimensions are a generous 31” wide by 55” long by 45” tall, and the tub has an enormous 39” of soaking depth. It’s a perfect walk-in tub for bathers over 6’ tall, or bariatric users who want to enjoy some extra space.
This tub is also great for users who like to use their walk-in tub for a quick sit-down shower. The extra width and depth gives you more elbow room for a thorough cleansing spray, and helps prevent water spilling onto the floor.

You can choose from the optional features and customize your walk-in tub exactly how you want. A deep soaking tub can help you feel weightless and alleviate pressure on the body. A tub with air or water massage jets, or a combination of both, can work wonders for ailing or elderly folks looking for relief. This kind of hydrotherapy has been shown to decrease pain in joints and muscles, improve circulation, elevate mood, and alleviate congested airways.
Optional features you can choose from are as follows:
- Hydromassage (water, air or dual systems)

Hydro Dimensions Certifications and Warranty
The walk-in bathtubs are tested to IAPMO standards (International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials), and the bathtub shell is covered by the UPC Certification (Universal Plumbing Code).
Every system is UL (Underwriters Laboratories) listed, which covers the electrical portion of the hydro and air massage therapy systems.
The company offers a 10-year limited warranty on the therapeutic systems, and a limited lifetime warranty on the tub shell, frame and door seal.
Hydro Dimensions tubs are slightly more higher-priced in the market, and any optional extras you want can quickly add up in costs. They don’t offer an installation service as part of their package, so you’ll have to organize with your own plumber.
On the plus side, if a wide range of choice is what you’re looking for, Hydro tubs will have what you need. They have a lot to offer in the way of customized fixtures and extra features, so you can be assured of a high level of luxury for the price you pay.
