Did you know we can date the first patent for American toilets back to 1857? They called it the “plunger closet.” Today we have pressurized toilets that are water efficient toilets. These are the water saving toilets that we see on the market today. Modern toilets may also be for sale and listed as pressure assisted toilets. These toilets have a completely sealed inner tank. Air inside the tank, once pressurized by flushing the toilet, forces the water out of the bowl. In other words, these toilets do not rely on gravity.
We also have walk in bathtubs today. People who have a hard time getting into and out of the bathtub can maintain their independence when they use a walk in tub. You either have the option of buying one with a door that opens in towards the tub, or out towards the room. Either way, the door has a watertight seal.
Another option is to put in a shower if you have trouble getting in and out of the tub. You will also have a choice to make for your shower base. A shower base today comes in various sizes. You can get a corner shower base too, for corner showers. They also make a shower base that replaces the area of an existing bathtub. In other words, you can get rid of your tub and put in a shower base instead, along with shower doors and walls. They make entire kits for showers today that come with the shower base in the kit.
