Ultra Tubs stands out by offering a lifetime guarantee on the tub, door frame, and all seals, along with a minimum of ten years of coverage for the moving parts (pumps).

Unlike many companies that provide a one-year or less guarantee and simply advise you to ‘return the tub’ in case of an issue, we are committed to addressing any concerns directly in your home.


In terms of compliance with State requirements, certain companies may overlook crucial regulations, potentially resulting in the installation of a tub that is not legally approved.

Ultra Tubs ensures full compliance by providing tubs that are entirely approved. Our installations won’t jeopardize your house insurance, as we meticulously pull permits for every installation, adhering to all legal requirements.


Certain companies incur substantial expenses from TV commercials, spokespeople, warehousing, nationwide presence, call centers, and extensive management. These costs significantly contribute to the overall price, even for tubs of lower build quality.

On the other hand, Ultra Tubs operates differently. We ship directly from the factory, maintaining minimal overhead. Our advertising approach primarily relies on ‘word of mouth’ recommendations from satisfied clients. This distinctive strategy allows us to offer the best quality tubs at substantial cost savings for you.
