The Characteristics Of Walk In Baths
There are many characteristics of walk in baths that provide you with a great bathing experience.
The first feature is the thermostatic mixer tap. This tap keeps the water at a pleasant temperature as it enters the bath. This means that you do not get the sudden shock of hot or cold water as the bath is running in.
Another feature of walk in baths is grab rails. These rails are located round the bath to help you enter and exit the bath and sit down easily, without the risk of slipping.
