There are a few different types of bathtubs available for homes in America, but walkin bathtubs are some of the most helpful. Interestingly, walkin bathtubs take up a similar amount of space in a bathroom as a traditional bathtub, although they are very different than traditional tubs.
For example, walk in baths have watertight doors that form hydrostatic seals when the door latches. As the tub fills up with water, the weight of the water compresses the door seal, making the entire walk in bathtub completely leak proof. Walkin bath tubs generally offer independence and freedom of mobility to the elderly or disabled, who often require special bathing options.
