Walk in bath tubs
If you are currently thinking about remodeling your bathroom, you should seriously consider the benefits associated with a walk in bathtub. Walk in tubs provide additional floor space in your bathroom, allowing you to gain more bathroom real estate. The reason why you can gain more space in your bathroom with walk in bath tubs is the design of a walk in tub. Unlike traditional bathtubs, walk in tubs are tall. Traditional tubs are long and wide, requiring a significant amount of floor space in your bathroom. In addition to being able to create more space, a walk in bathtub is also safer than traditional tubs. If you have a traditional tub, you are stepping over a high ledge to get in. This process is the cause of thousands of accidents every year. Furthermore, your traditional tub may have a slippery surface, creating the perfect environment for an accident. A walk in bathtub does not have a steep ledge for you to step over to get in. Instead, walk in tubs have a door that allows you to walk in without stepping over a ledge. Furthermore, most walk in tubs have a no slip surface to prevent you from slipping and falling while getting in and out of the tub. Once you get in a walk in bathtub, you close the door for a perfect seal. Some models have grab handles installed in strategic locations to give the elderly and people with physical disabilities the option to retain their independence in the bathroom. Another benefit associated with a walk in bathtub is a comfortable seat. No longer do you have to squat down to the bottom of a traditional tub, which increases your chances of slipping and falling. Instead, you can simply seat down on a comfortable seat. Furthermore, some sophisticated walk in tubs come equipped with a Jacuzzi system for therapeutic purposes. Refernce materials.

    I really like the idea of a Jacuzzi system. However, how long do you have to wait to get out of a walk in tub? The water has to drain before you can open the door.

    I think most walk in tubs have a quick draining system so your not sitting their for 15 minutes waiting to get out.
