Whirlpool shower baths are basically a walk in tub but can have a shower as well, that allows seniors and anyone with a standing disability to comfortably sit while bathing in a safe environment. Whirlpool shower baths are relatively known as handicapped showers and have a door that can swing inwards or outwards. The person enters the bath and shuts the door forming a water tight seal. Whirlpool shower baths allow people who were unable to bathe without help before, now bathe on their own and in the comfort of their own home. They are easy to install, take up less room than a traditional tub, and offer safety and convenience.
Another convenience of the bathroom is the toilet. Queen Elizabeth I in 1600 had her very own toilet at Richmond Palace but she would not use it because it made too much racket. Thomas MacAvity Stewart from Saint John, New Brunswick, patented the vortex flushing toilet bowl in 1907, which created a self cleansing effect. High efficiency toilets today combine maximum flushing power with minimal water usage.
With whirlpool shower baths, their size allows more room in the bathroom for a double vanity as well as a nice modern toilet and bidet if people prefer. When it comes to pressurized toilets there are two tanks, an inner and an outer tank. The inner tank is completely sealed, just like whirlpool shower baths. Then, when water is brought from the water line, the air inside the tank gets compressed. When the toiled flushes, instead of the water falling by the force of gravity, the water is instead forced out with the pressure of compressed air. These toilets may seem more expensive but they do a better job of removing waste from the bowl with less water. So next time you are contemplating a bathroom remodel, remember whirlpool shower baths and pressurized toilets.
