Mar 21, 2008
Options in choosing a new bath tub or replacing an old one are simply countless. There are several variations when it comes to shapes, sizes, color, style and functions of bath tubs. It is therefore a good idea to look around for one that's best for you. If you would like to try a new kind of bath fixture with innovative functional features, consider investing in a walk in bath tub.

With a walk in bath tub, you enjoy an an easy-accesses opening that you can't find in your ordinary bath. When used, it is conveniently sealed and secure. There are two types of opening: inward opening and outward opening doors. There are advantages in both. While the walking in bath tub is being used, the pressure of the water inside automatically seals and secures the inward opening door. Outward opening doors can be opened outwards from the inside of the tub, thus making it useful in emergencies.

Furthermore, it may already be built with grab bars, anti-slip flooring, hoses, mounted showerheads, quick filling and drainage systems, thermostatic control and even a whirlpool or hydrotherapy function.

It can be a huge inconvenience for some as well as a hazard. You may easily miss a step, slip or fall just trying to get in or out of the bath tub.

Furthermore, walk in types also cater to the special needs of the elderly and those who are physically-challenged. The highly innovative features of the walk in bath tub allow for super easy access without the usual step-in action, which could be both uncomfortable and unsafe.

Most walk in tubs offer the features mentioned above for better relaxation, circulation and over-all convenience.

- How long will installation take? - Is the installation going to cause major disturbance in the house? - Will I be charged if I'm going to ask for my old bath tub to be replaced? - How long will the walk in bath tub last? - How big should the tub size be?
