Bath Lift Installation and Service Information

How do I install a bath lift?

There is little or no installation required for most bath lifts. They typically come in two or three pieces and are easy to put together and take apart for storage. Before using the tub, make sure that it is set up properly and that the suction cups are secured to the tub floor. Some bath lifts have mechanisms to make it easier to release the suction cups for removal.

How often do I need maintenance for my bath lift?

Manufacturers will include maintenance recommendations in their owner’s manual. It is important to always follow their recommendations or else the warranty may become void. Typically, battery- and water-powered bath lifts should be inspected annually by an authorized dealer/installer to ensure all mechanisms work properly. The company that the lift is purchased from should be able to provide this service.

How do I clean my bath lift?

You should clean the bath lift immediately after every use by removing the covers and rinsing it with hot water. Some bath lifts are made with anti-microbial/anti-bacterial material which benefits users who are prone to infections. For a deeper weekly clean, a non-bleaching bath cleaner may be used. However, always read the label before using it on the bath lift. Most bath lift models come with or offer optional covers that can be washed regularly. The covers can also prevent sliding or slipping off the lift.
