What would you do with this walk in tub? Hold your horses...UPDATED!
In our newly bought house,We have a walk in tub..I don't even know What they are called. But here is a partial picture. My question is,what would you do? Take it out and put in a good sized shower? Leave it and cover it somehow? And if so,all I can think of is a bigger curtain. Also..how fast do these drain if they are intended for an older person to sit in...so when getting out one doesn't get cold. Because it looks to me that you can't get out until the water level is below the door level. I am totally unfamiliar with these,is there anything else I should know about them? Update number 1,,,,,,the other UPDATE BELOW........edited... I am very grateful for the information shared. The link is very helpful , lots to think about that I didn't know. So that being said...does anyone have an idea of what is involved in removing it, can it be salvaged and sold?
ok THE UPDATE IS. 2..............drum roll! ,!........hubs was hurting so bad after moving the truck load of "stuff" in that he decided to take a soothing hot bath and jet massage in this tub. All of a sudden I hear this screaming... BERNICE...BERNICE...!! Rushing to save my beloved from drowning from being too relaxed...I find his naked self..a prisoner in the tub and water gushing out of the door and about 2 inches of water on the floor! Of course he can't get out because there is still water in the tub! So...I rush to get 17 towels and throw them on the floor to sop up the water...and his highness is still sitting in the tub shivering ,waiting until the water level gets below the door! So....the demise of the tub is down the road! Not a pretty picture! @miriam! EDIT...UPDATE....WE TOOK TUB OUT....WILL POST PICTURES SOON. no floor damage-handle was loose-screwdriver did the fix.
