Derrick Lockwood, owner of Bath 911, offers a variety of bath products, including the popular Bath-Tec Whirlpool Bath line.
Derrick Lockwood took the helm of Bath 911 in January of this year. The Bixby-based company specializes in bathroom remodeling services that include stand-alone tubs and showers, tub inserts, whirlpool and specialty tubs, and more. If you want to transform a bathroom area that has become outdated or perhaps just plain ugly, Bath 911 is in the business of providing partial or complete bathroom overhauls. And their products complement just about any budget.
Some of the newest products added to Bath 911’s arsenal include Bath-Tec Whirlpool Bath products: Hydro-Massage Whirlpool Bathtubs (water massage systems), Hydro-Massage UltrAir Bathtubs (air massage systems), and Dual System Whirlpool/UltrAir Bathtubs.
Hydro-Massage Whirlpool Bathtubs have ergonomically installed venturi style jets to push the water on strategic parts of the body to create an invigorating or relaxing whirlpool massage, depending on the selected intensity. Each jet is individually adjustable, allowing the bather a personalized body massage. Bath-Tec’s exclusive chemically treated, antibacterial piping inhibits bacterial growth and creates a more sanitary bathing environment. Equipped with Bath-Tec’s unique, optional Clean Flush system, the internal workings of the whirlpool system can be quickly cleaned and disinfected before or after each use.
The Hydro-Massage UltrAir Bathtub blows pre-heated air into the water, creating thousands of relaxing air bubbles. Strategically located around the lower tub wall, these air-massage jets give the bather a soft massage that reaches the entire body. The air jets are designed to drain completely after each use, and 20 minutes after the system has stopped, it automatically reactivates a purge cycle that will dry the internal workings of the system to ensure sanitary conditions. Therapeutic bath oils, bubble baths and aromatherapy solutions can be safely used with the air massage system.
Walk-in bathtubs from Bath 911 are appealing to seniors and anyone with physical limitations.
Dual System Whirlpool/UltrAir Bathtubs use a combination of water massage and air massage systems in the same bathtub, with the benefits of both systems. The whirlpool water massage system and the air massage system can be operated independently or in unison.
Walk-In Bathtubs (soaking tub or whirlpool tub) provide convenience, comfort and independence for seniors or anyone with a physical limitation. Bath-Tec deep-soaking walk-in tubs are constructed with a special Gelcote reinforced with fiberglass and titanium. The one-piece tub construction is mounted on a steel tubular frame with adjustable leveling feet, low entry threshold, neoprene sealed entry door, integral seat and tile flange. A factory installed, removable front skirt offers access to the whirlpool system components, tub drain and faucets.
Any bathtub in Bath-Tec’s product line may be purchased as a soaking tub only, enabling the bather to enjoy the pleasure and comfort of a deep soaking bathtub in a wide variety of sizes, designs and colors.
Bath 911 will remove old standard tubs and replace them with a new model of your choice. They do complete remodeling on showers, tubs, toilets, tile, vanities and tops, and medicine cabinets. Their employees are skilled and trained to do just about any job, from changing out leaking faucets to installing cultured marble showers.
Lockwood says that most full bathroom remodels are completed in three to four days. Tub inserts or replacements are usually done in just one day. Call today for a free estimate and to get information on Bath 911’s fall specials.
